|Assets:||A natural point producer whose setup skills rival some of the best the game has ever seen, he's also extremely well rounded and more suited to the physical game than twin brother Daniel. Has strong defensive tendencies and off-the-charts playmaking ability. Is also excellent on face-offs.|
|Flaws:||Doesn't have a natural goal-scorer's mentality--that's his twin brother Daniel's job. Could stand to shoot more often when he has limited options at his disposal. Also needs to step his game up when the spotlight shines brightest, something he has struggled with in the past.|
|Career Potential:||Elite playmaking center.|

Henrik Sedin leads Sweden to IIHF gold | 05/19/2013 5:21 PM
NewsHenrik Sedin's two goals helped Sweden throttle Switzerland 5-1 to win a gold medal in the 2013 IIHF World Championships.
ImpactLoui Eriksson, Erik Gustafsson and Simon Hjalmarsson were the other goal scorers. Sweden enjoyed a rare treat in winning in front of its home crowd as the event took place in Stockholm.
H. Sedin is upset after series deciding call | 05/08/2013 11:29 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin took exception to the boarding minor that his brother, Daniel Sedin, got in overtime on Tuesday.
Impact"I shouldn't say it right now, but, it's a [expletive] call," Henrik said. That call resulted in the San Jose Sharks series-winning goal. It certainly did look borderline, but it only resulted in the Canucks' elimination because they had put themselves in a situation where any bad break would be fatal.
Henrik Sedin: "No one believes in us" | 05/05/2013 11:22 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin said that "no one believes in us" after Game 2.
ImpactThe Canucks lost both games at home and are heading to San Jose needing to win four of the last five games in order to move on to the next round. "Going into San Jose, there's no pressure (even if) it's a must-win for us," Sedin said. "No one is believing in us, apart from us. That's the way we have to look at it." Sedin has one assist in two games and he needs to pick up his game if the Canucks have any chance to do anything in the post-season.
Henrik Sedin bemoans Canucks' Friday loss | 05/04/2013 11:08 AM
NewsThe Vancouver Canucks seemed to be on their way to tying their playoff series 1-1 Friday night against the visiting San Jose Sharks when, with less than a minute in regulation, a giveaway led to a Patrick Marleau goal.
ImpactThe game was tied 1-1 and then Raffi Torres gave the Sharks a 2-1 win and a 2-0 lead in the series with a goal in overtime. Canucks star Henrik Sedin was beside himself. "We played one of our best games in a while," Henrik said. "It sucks to lose. We should have scored more than two goals. We have to keep throwing everything we can at (San Jose goalie) Antti Niemi. We're going to get our goals. We have to go down there (to San Jose) and steal the first one and we have a series again."
Henrik Sedin collects two assists in win | 04/11/2013 12:20 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin was among the Vancouver Canucks' top performers in a 4-1 win against the Calgary Flames on Wednesday, collecting two assists.
ImpactDan Hamhuis continued his five-game point streak with a pair of helpers, pushing his season total to 19 points. It was a good night for Dans as Daniel Sedin found the net, marking his first power-play goal since Jan. 25.
H. Sedin records 600th assist | 04/07/2013 1:45 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin scored a goal and two helpers Saturday night as he notched his 600th assist in style during the Canucks' 5-2 win over Calgary.

Henrik Sedin's two point night leads Canucks | 04/05/2013 2:13 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin scored his 10th goal of the season and added an assist in the Canucks 4-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
ImpactSedin has had another solid season. The Sedin's have shown a little bit of slippage as they enter their mid-30's, but the dynamic duo should continue to be star producers for another couple seasons. He's a must start in all formats.
Henrik Sedin gets two points Thursday | 03/29/2013 10:14 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin had a goal and an assist in Vancouver's 4-1 win Thursday.
ImpactSedin has nine goals and 31 points in 34 games this season. He's just outside of the top-20 in the NHL points race. It wouldn't be surprising if he moves up in the charts, but the former Art Ross Trophy winner obviously isn't going to reach Sidney Crosby (56 points in 35 games) this season. No one is.
Henrik Sedin gives the Canucks early lead | 03/19/2013 4:35 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin scored a first period power play goal in the Canucks 3-1 loss to Minnesota Monday.
ImpactSedin gave the Canucks an early 1-0 lead in the first period but it was the only shot that got past Niklas Backstrom. It was Sedin's eighth goal of the season as he now has 27 points and a plus-16 rating this season. Brother Daniel Sedin and Jason Garrison drew assists on the goal. It was Garrison's first power play point of the season.

NewsHenrik Sedin scored a goal, but it wasn't enough as the Canucks were upended by Minnesota by a score of 4-2 Sunday.
ImpactThe Vancouver captain is known more for his skills as a playmaker, but he does chip in the occasional goal of his - he has six on the season. Christopher Higgins also scored in the losing effort for Vancouver.
Henrik Sedin scores lone goal in loss to CBJ | 03/07/2013 11:53 PM
NewsHenrik Sedin scored the only Vancouver goal in a 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus Thursday night.
ImpactThe fifth of the campaign for the Vancouver captain evened the game at 1-1, but the Canucks were unable to put any more pucks behind Sergei Bobrovsky. Despite the dynamic ability of the Sedin twins, Vancouver's lack of scoring depth beyond the pair is evident.
Henrik Sedin plays in 600th straight game | 02/27/2013 12:15 PM
NewsHenrik Sedin extended his iron man streak to 600 games on Tuesday.
ImpactSedin scored his third goal of the season, but it otherwise wasn't much of a celebration, given that Vancouver suffered a 4-2 loss. He has 18 points in 19 games this season and he should continue to do at least that well for the remainder of 2013.
Henrik Sedin scores the game-winner Thursday | 02/22/2013 12:29 PM
NewsHenrik Sedin netted the game-winning goal in Vancouver's 4-3 victory over Dallas on Thursday.
ImpactSedin extended his point streak to four games this season. He has two goals and 15 points in 16 games and we wouldn't be surprised if he picks up the pace as the season drags on.
H. Sedin becomes Canucks scoring leader | 02/16/2013 1:51 AM
NewsHenrik Sedin collected two assists in Vancouver's 4-3 loss to Dallas on Friday night, which pushed him past Markus Naslund as the Canucks' all time leading scorer with 757 points.
ImpactDespite the huge accomplishment, Sedin is not on par with his career point totals. Through 12 games, he has eight assists and no goals.
Henrik Sedin only one point away from record | 02/12/2013 12:27 PM
NewsHenrik Sedin is only one point away from breaking Markus Naslund's career mark as a Vancouver Canuck.
ImpactMarkus Naslund had 756 points in a Vancouver uniform and it appears that Henrik Sedin will surpass it over the next couple of games. "I don't think my wife (Johanna) knows about it," joked Henrik. "I've just been focusing on getting better and that's just my mindset. Not scoring my first goal Saturday was my biggest disappointment and I'm just going to focus on (brother) Danny behind me." Sedin has eight assists and no goals this season in 11 games.
Henrik Sedin is not shooting or scoring | 02/06/2013 4:23 PM
NewsHenrik Sedin doesn't have a goal yet this season, but what might be more troubling is that he only has 11 shots.
ImpactVancouver grinder Dale Weise has 11 shots as well and he averages about 10 minutes less ice time per game than Sedin. Henrik is known as being more of a passer, but he's still managed to top 100 shots in each of his past seven seasons. He has six assists in nine games, but will need to shoot more if he is to end his goalless slide.
H. Sedin off to decent, but uninspired start | 02/02/2013 5:40 PM
NewsHenrik Sedin has five assists in eight games this season.
ImpactThat's not exactly a thrilling start for the former Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner. Still, Sedin is one of the best skill forwards in the game and his production should improve as the season goes on. Look for him to finish the shortened season with about a point-per-game.
