Finishes career with three shots on goal

Sedin recorded three shots on goal during his final NHL game against the Oilers on Saturday. Edmonton won in a shootout, 3-2.
After his brother scored to open the shootout, Sedin couldn't beat Cam Talbot on his shootout attempt, which was the final act of his brilliant NHL career. This season was a rough one, though, as Sedin only posted three goals and a minus-22 rating. His shot attempts were way down, but his shooting percentage was also a career-low 4.5 percent. He also possessed a minus-49 rating in his final two seasons combined. On a positive note, his 47 assists did keep him respectable in the points category this season. Sedin ends his career with 240 goals and 1,070 points in 1,329 games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Canucks were a mess in 2016-17, but Sedin managed to remain one of the more productive players, reaching 50 points for the fourth consecutive season. The veteran center did post a career-worst minus-27 rating, but it’s hard to be critical, considering the struggles of the team and how fans were embracing a “tank” mentality. At 36 years old, he’s certainly trending in the wrong direction, but Henrik remains an elite playmaker who forms a lethal duo with twin brother Daniel. The power play should benefit somewhat from the offseason additions of Sam Gagner and Michael Del Zotto, so look for Henrik to rebound with the man advantage after struggling in 2016-17. His best days are behind him, but with 14 straight 30-plus-assist seasons, Henrik remains a consistent and viable fantasy producer.
Henrik was an assist machine once again in 2015-16, dishing out 44 helpers as Vancouver’s top-line center. While his 55 points were a letdown, the team struggled offensively overall and the captain didn’t have much to work with. While the veteran isn’t seen as a goal scorer, the addition of 30-goal-scorer Loui Eriksson should give a big boost to the team’s offense, including the power play, and Henrik should reap the rewards. At 35, his best years are behind him, but look for the playmaker to make slight improvements on his disappointing totals from last season.
After slumping to just 50 points in 2013-14, Sedin got back on track in a big way last season, finishing 10th in the NHL with 73 points. The 34-year-old dished out a whopping 55 assists and led all Canucks forwards with a plus-11 rating. After posting consecutive 11-goal campaigns in the previous two years, Sedin struck 18 times on just 101 shots in 2014-15 – good for an insane, career-high 17.8 shooting percentage. The top-line center certainly benefitted from the addition of the sharpshooting Radim Vrbata, who potted 31 goals in his first season with Vancouver. Sedin, who racked up 25 power-play points last season, remains an elite playmaker who will likely turn in another very productive fantasy season alongside his brother Daniel and Vrbata on the top line. Having dished out at least 50 assists in eight of his last nine full NHL seasons, Sedin is one of the safest, most reliable fantasy options around.
Sedin struggled mightily during the 2013-2014 season, posting his lowest full-season point total since the 2003-2004 campaign. The 33-year-old, usually known for his reliable scoring on a game-to-game basis, was wildly inconsistent throughout the season, once going 12 straight contests without recording a point. He only managed 50 points (11 goals) on the season and saw harsh drops in almost all of his stat totals. Yes, Henrik should rebound, what with a new coach and a former 35-goal scorer in Radim Vrbata set to start with him and brother Daniel on the top line. But it’s fair to assume his 80-plus point days are over.
Sedin continued to be an assist machine in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, posting 45 points (11goals, 34 assists) in 48 games played. His 34 assists were good enough to earn him eighth overall in the NHL, which actually seemed like a slight setback considering he led the league for three years running prior to last season. Sedin is entering the final year of a five-year deal with the Canucks and will look to once again be a high-impact player in his contract year. The 6-2 center has been a staple on the Canucks' first line the past several seasons and his role should remain essentially the same in 2013-14. If the Canucks want to make it past the first round of the playoffs for the first time in three years, Sedin will surely have to play a key role once again in their offensive attack. He remains a top ten center for the coming season.
Despite seeing his point totals drop for the second consecutive season, Henrik remained at a point-per-game pace once again in 2011-12. He finished the season with 81 points (14 G, 67 A) and a plus-23 rating in 82 games. The 67 helpers were good enough to top the league – a feat Henrik's accomplished three years running. While he’ll be hard-pressed to ever reach the 29-goal level he saw during his 2010-11 MVP campaign, Henrik remains the best playmaker in the league. Vancouver will once again have a high-scoring attack this year, so look for he and his brother, Daniel, to continue racking up heaps of helpers.
While Sedin saw a slight drop off from his 2010-11 Hart Trophy production, he still managed to lead the NHL in assists (75) and finish fourth in total points (94) during the 2011-12 season. His 19 goals were somewhat disappointing after he posted a career-best 29 the previous season, but that total was more in line with the goal production we’ve seen from Sedin throughout his career. He’ll return to be the primary playmaker in the Canucks’ attack and shouldn’t have any problems remaining a point-per game play.
The 2009-10 season was a banner year for Sedin. He shook off his label of playmaker to become a well-rounded offensive machine for the Canucks, leading the league in points (112) while setting career-best marks in goals (29), assists (83) and plus/minus (plus-35). It’ll be hard for the Swedish center to reproduce his dominance from last season, but he remains a legit point-per-game player and a threat to lead the league in assists at year’s end.
Occupying the center slot on the Canucks' top line, Sedin again proved he's one of the best playmakers in the league. He finished the 2008-09 season with a career-high 22 goals while adding 60 assists, sixth-highest total in the league. His scoring might dip back to the 10-15 goals we're accustomed to seeing, but Sedin will remain a premier source of assists, with a large number of them going to his twin brother Daniel.
Paired with identical twin brother Daniel Sedin, "Hank" has been the playmaker for the Canucks the past three seasons. The new rules installed post-strike have helped opened up Sedin's game as a creator for teammates. Sedin has finished fourth in the NHL in assists each of the past two seasons. His inability to light up the lamp - 25 goals in his last 164 games - hurts his fantasy value, but the high assist totals offset the scoring deficiency. Sedin will once again be lined up with his brother, as well as newcomer Bernier. The added physical presence of Bernier should open up the ice more for Sedin, leading to higher point totals.
Among the best passers in the league, he shares a unique bond with his identical twin and line mate, Daniel Sedin. Henrik will continue to get first line minutes, along with a tremendous amount of power play time. Both he and his brother do not play many shorthanded minutes. Owners in leagues that have assists as a category would be well served with Henrik on their team.
Henrik is set to beat the career highs he set last season as his role expands even further this season. He could threaten 90 total points and should be on everyone's radar. If you want him for your fantasy squad, you may have to reach a bit. He is one of the best two-forwards in the game today.
Henrik is the playmaker of the Sedin twins. Strong defensively, and doesn't shy away from contact as his brother tends to do. Must learn to shoot more if he wants to be successful in the NHL. Had a good year playing for MoDo of the Swedish Elite League in 2004-05 with 36 points in 44 games. Should definitely crack the 50 point barrier this year.
