The Sedins Officially Announce Retirement From The NHL

Vancouver Canucks' Henrik and Daniel Sedin retiring at the end of this season

Vancouver Canucks' Henrik and Daniel Sedin retiring at the end of this season

Twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin have announced they are retiring at the end of their current season with the Vancouver Canucks.

"We started the year with the mindset that a decision would be made in the postseason", the letter says. "But it became clear, after discussions with our families throughout the year, that this will be our last season", the Sedins said in a statement. But in the hours following the Sedins' announcement, they were listed on reseller sites for prices starting at US$113.

Happy retirement, Daniel and Henrik, you'll be missed in the National Hockey League! "You've all been with us every step of the way, and we want to thank you".

Easily the most one-sided sibling combo on the list, Brent played two seasons in the National Hockey League with the Tampa Bay Lightning and collected four points in 13 games, including his only goal during the 1993-94 season. "We tried to treat it that way".

Such was his goal-scoring prowess that the National Hockey League created a trophy for the single-season goal scoring leader and named it the Rocket Richard Trophy. Henrik Sedin added 23 goals and 55 assists in 105 playoff games, and Daniel Sedin put up 25 goals and 46 assists in 102 post-season contests.

Henrik won the Art Ross Trophy as scoring champion and the Hart Trophy as most valuable player in 2009-10. With the Canucks, the Sedins have won seven division titles, and advanced to the 2011 Stanley Cup final, though they ultimately fell to the Boston Bruins in seven games. Daniel Sedin has 21 goals and 31 assists in 78 games this season, while Henrik Sedin has three goals and 45 assists in 79 outings - a combined 100 points Vancouver will have to replace. "That won't change. In the meantime, we still have some games to play, and we still have some work to do".

N. Korean Media Reports Kim Jong-un's Attendance at S. Korean Concert
Members of the K-pop group, meanwhile, were pretty relieved by the North Korean audience and Kim's reception to their performance. The last time a South Korean artist performed in the North was in 2005, when Cho Yong-pil held a solo concert in Pyongyang .

This was evident when the other missed games because of injury, and was especially noticeable at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi when Henrik stayed back in Vancouver to nurse a nagging rib injury.

Both Sedins were top prospects in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft and had made it known they wanted to play together though the draft process posed a possible challenge to the pair signing with the same team.

The fact that the Sedins spent time on the same roster as Bo Horvat and Brock Boeser (and, at least for a game or two, Thatcher Demko) was great for the youngsters and with more reinforcements coming, the Canucks will rise in the future. It was time for the 37-year-old twins to focus on homework and birthday parties and kids' activities and family dinners, on life after hockey. Sweden finished fourth, but Daniel scored five goals in six games and Henrik checked in with nine points in six games.

"Danny got a cut on his face the first year and got stitches and we were all excited", chuckled Burke of the identifier everyone in the Canucks organization used to differentiate the lads from Ornskoldsvik.

"Going on the road, leaving the kids home, family, that's been the toughest part", Daniel Sedin said. They arrived late and played in the final four games that spring, but pulled the home side through for a win in Stockholm.
