Over the years there's been a ton of brother acts in the NHL: The Rocket and the "Pocket Rocket" in Montreal, Bobby and Dennis Hull, or how bout the Sutters... all six of them.
Well, these days two brothers are leading the way in Vancouver. The Sedin twins.
Daniel and Henrik... identical twins, born in Sweden and chosen by the Canucks one after the other in the 1999 NHL draft. Ever since, they've been dazzling on and off the ice, leading the Canucks to the playoffs in seven of their nine seasons, and donating a million and a half dollars to the BC Children's Hospital. The twins also take pride in representing their country, and helped Sweden win a gold medal at the 2006 Turin Winter Games.
This past season may have been their best. Daniel averaged more than a point per game, and Henrik led the league in scoring - winning his first Art Ross trophy. Plus, he's up for the Hart trophy - awarded every year to the player deemed most valuable to his team.
