It will be a week-long celebration of the twins’ careers that the team has dubbed as “Sedin Week,” with honours also taking place on Monday and Sunday.
The Monday night game against the Nashville Predators is called “Legends Night” and celebrates four Canucks who have their numbers in the rafters already: Stan Smyl, Trevor Linden, Pavel Bure and Markus Naslund.
Henrik and Daniel’s Nos. 22 and 33 will go to the rafters on Wednesday against the Chicago Blackhawks during a pre-game ceremony to celebrate their 17 years of contributions to the Canucks.
A “Legacy Game” wraps up the celebrations on Sunday against the Anaheim Ducks to honour the twins’ contributions to the community.
Daniel and Henrik Sedin were drafted second and third, respectively, by Vancouver at the 1999 NHL draft.
Henrik would go on to captain the team and become the club’s all-time leader in assists (830), points (1,070) and games played (1,330). Daniel sits atop the Canucks’ goals list (393) and ranks second in each of the other categories.
