Daniel Sedin: 1,107 GP, 346-576-922
Henrik Sedin: 1,136 GP, 220-732-952
What They've Done This Year: Both Daniel and Henrik Sedin rank among the top 100 NHL players of all time in terms of point production, according to QuantHockey. Henrik's tied with Rick Tocchet for 91st overall while Daniel's tied for 99th with another active player, Shane Doan, who's four years older than him.
The Sedins are also making their case as the greatest players to wear the uniforms of the Vancouver Canucks. Henrik became the franchise's all-time leading scorer when he tallied his 757th career point to pass Markus Naslund in February of 2013, per NHL.com. Daniel's next goal will bump him out of a tie with Naslund to become the top goal scorer in Canucks history.
Further strengthening their cases, the heretofore-humble Sedins have shown plenty of backbone this season. Most recently, they got their revenge against the trash-talking Florida Panthers by ending their opponents' franchise-record winning streak on Jan. 11. By the time they retire, it doesn't look like any intelligent hockey fans will still be calling the twins "soft."
Estimated Hall of Fame Timeline: The Sedins' game has always been driven more by brains than by speed or skill, which could allow them to extend their careers longer than most top-line forwards.
Daniel sits tied for 12th in NHL scoring with 41 points while Henrik is tied for 25th. The only other player in their age range with similar production this season is Patrick Sharp of the Dallas Stars, 34, who matches Henrik with 37 points.
Henrik left Vancouver's Jan. 17 game against the New York Islanders with an apparent shoulder injury, per David Satriano of NHL.com, but over the course of their careers, the Sedins have proved to be impressively resilient. Henrik spoke to the media after the game and said, "It's a new injury but we are not talking weeks I am hoping."
Daniel and Henrik have two years left on their respective contracts, per General Fanager, which will take them to age 37. Don't be surprised to see them keep playing after those deals expire, which will delay their Hall of Fame eligibility.
When it is time to vote for their induction, they may be hampered by their status as twins. Throughout their careers, they've always been a package deal, but each member of the selection committee can only nominate one player per year. Will they be split up, will an exception be made, or will the committee opt in favor of a less complicated nomination?
