|Assets:||Handles and protects the puck brilliantly, and has a knack for finding open ice. Is very solid in the defensive zone and a constant threat on offense. Lethal on the power play, he has innate chemistry with twin brother Henrik.|
|Flaws:||Could stand to be a little more assertive and initiate more contact on the ice. Can he still be an elite scorer without his twin brother's help? Perhaps we'll never find out. Isn't much of a penalty-killer, despite sound instincts.|
|Career Potential:||Elite scoring winger.|

NewsVancouver left wing Daniel Sedin missed nine games last season and played hurt in other which explains his fall from 2012-13 to last season's 47-point production.
ImpactEntering his 14th season, Sedin's injury concerns and simply the effects of nearly 1,000 games is a worry, but we think he bounces back with a solid 28 goal, 32 assist season. No, it's not the 104 points he produced in 2010-11, but he's still a useful fantasy asset.

NewsVancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella indicated that Daniel Sedin will return from his lower-body injury on Sunday.
ImpactThe Canucks face the Buffalo Sabres in a game they need to win, so getting their key winger back for the first time since March 2 is a big boost, even if the 33-year-old hadn't scored a point since Jan. 23. He has 40 points in 63 games played so far this season.

Daniel Sedin can't save battered Swedes | 02/23/2014 9:29 AM
NewsDaniel Sedin led the Swedish with 22:15 minutes of ice time in their 3-0 loss to Canada in the gold medal game.
ImpactSedin was given the monumental task of beating Canada after losing his twin brother, Henrik, along with Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, and Nicklas Backstrom. With those many top-tier forwards gone, it's no surprise that Sweden couldn't find a way to get past goaltender Carey Price. Sedin finished with three shots on goal.
Daniel Sedin thinks he'll mesh with Backstrom | 02/11/2014 6:52 PM
NewsDaniel Sedin thinks Nicklas Backstrom is a great replacement for his injured twin brother, Henrik, on Sweden's top line.
ImpactBackstrom, like Henrik Sedin, is a superb playmaker. "That's something I'm used to," Daniel Sedin said. "It should be easy." Of course, while Backstrom is filling Henrik's spot on the top line, he isn't really replacing Henrik. Sweden has enough top end talent that their first line will be great with or without both of the twins, but the absence of Henrik hurts their depth.

He ended the night with a goal and two assists and has five points in his last two against the Blackhawks. "Six games feels like forever," Sedin told the team's official website. "We keep saying it's about the process but in the end it's about scoring, we know that, especially when there have been games we are losing 2-1, it's tight, or we are going into overtime or losing in a shootout. One goal can mean so much for this team right now and that's why it's been frustrating."
