November 1, 2013, Vancouver (ISN) – Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Michael D. Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin to four-year contracts through the end of the 2017-18 season.

“Daniel and Henrik are exemplary leaders, teammates and humanitarians and we’re very pleased to have them as part of our team for the long-term,” said Gillis. “Few players in the history of this club have had more significant roles in contributing to the success of this team and to our community and we look forward to many more years with their positive influence leading the way.”

Henrik Sedin, 33, is the captain of the Canucks and currently holds franchise records for most points (792), assists (610), plus/minus (+200) and consecutive games played (629). The centreman moved past previous franchise scoring leader Markus Naslund with his 757th point February 15/13 versus the Dallas Stars. The Ornskoldsvik, SWE, native ranks second in franchise history in games played (940) and third in game-winning goals (33).

Daniel Sedin, 33, ranks second in franchise history in scoring, passing Naslund with a two-point effort April 22/13 versus the Chicago Blackhawks.

Daniel and Henrik along with their families have been big supporters of the BC community since their arrival in Vancouver in 1999:

  • Earlier this season, the Sedin families launched ‘Sedin Corner’ for the 2013.14 season at Rogers Arena. Sedin Corner is a 14-person suite that will host charities and groups from British Columbia that support children’s health and education as well as family wellness.
  • Over the years, their support has benefited more than 50 charities, most notably the Canucks For Kids Fund, the Canucks Family Education Centre, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, the YWCA and BC Children’s Hospital, where they made a $1.5 million donation in 2010.

Media availability with Daniel and Henrik will take place in the Norm Jewison media room. Media can access the room via Gate 9.
