Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice-President and General Manager Dave Nonis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin to new three-year contracts. In keeping with club policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to have signed Daniel and Henrik to long-term contracts with the team,” said Nonis. “We have watched them raise their level of performance every season and consistently improve all aspects of their game since joining the Canucks. With both Daniel and Henrik having set career highs last season and winning gold as members of Team Sweden at the Winter Olympics, this is an exciting deal for the club.”


Daniel Sedin, 25, recorded career highs in goals (22), assists (49) and points (71) over the 2005-06 season. It also marked the second time in his career that Daniel played in all 82 regular season games (2003-04, 2005-06). In 397 regular season NHL games played with Vancouver, he has recorded 222 points (83-139-222) and tallied 13 points (3-10-13) in 31 playoff games. In 2006, Daniel was a member of Team Sweden, winning gold at the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, where he registered three points (1-2-3) in eight games played.

Henrik Sedin, 25, also recorded career high numbers in goals (18), assists (57) and points (75) in the 2005-06 season. His 57 assists were a team high and he was only four points back of team leading scorer Markus Naslund. Sedin’s plus 11 tied him with Nolan Baumgartner to lead the club in this category. The 2005-06 season also marked the third time in his career that Henrik played in all 82 regular season games (2000-01, 2001-02, and 2005-06). In 400 regular season NHL games played with Vancouver, he has recorded 221 points (62-159-221) and accumulated 16 points (8-8-16) through 31 playoff games. Henrik was also a member of Team Sweden at the 2006 Winter Olympics, winning gold and collecting four points (3-1-4) in eight games played. 

Daniel and Henrik Sedin were drafted by Vancouver second and third overall, respectively, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
