  • Henrik Sedin is a Swedish professional ice hockey centre who currently serves as captain of the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League. His identical twin brother Daniel also plays for the Canucks. Having played together throughout their career the pair are known for their effectiveness playing off one another. Henrik, a skilled passer, is known as the playmaker, while Daniel is known as the goalscorer. On February 15, 2013, Sedin became the all-time leading scorer for the Vancouver Canucks. Henrik began his career in the Swedish Elite League with Modo Hockey in 1997 and was co-recipient, with Daniel, of the 1999 Golden Puck as Swedish player of the year. Selected third overall by the Canucks in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Henrik has spent his entire NHL career in Vancouver. He was selected one pick after his brother Daniel. After four seasons with the club, he became the Canucks' top-scoring centre in 2005–06. He has since won three Cyrus H. McLean Trophies as the team's leading point-scorer and one Cyclone Taylor Award as the team's most valuable player.
