After Hours: Henrik Sedin becoming a 'complete' player

Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin joined After Hours hosts Scott Oake and Kelly Hrudey Saturday night to talk about what it means to become more of a complete player.

Vancouver captain getting more chances to kill penalties for Canucks

The Sedin twins are still in Vancouver, but it's a different era and a new system. 

When John Tortorella took over behind the Canucks' bench this off-season, he began to preach a shot-blocking mentality with emphasis on penalty killing. 

Now, Henrik Sedin — predominantly used in an offensive capacity under former coach Alain Vigneault's system — is getting more of a shot than he ever did to help stop opposing teams' power plays (or what Sedin calls being 'a complete' player). 

Sedin joined Scott Oake and Kelly Hrudey on After Hours on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday night to talk about his expanded role in Vancouver among other things.
