Another Swedish duo, Henrik and Joel Lundqvist.
I am a die-hard Rangers fan, but even I had completely forgotten that the Vezina-worthy goaltender had a twin brother. I guess this was because they are not often compared to each other.
The brothers grew up in Sweden, where they began to play hockey whilst in kindergarten. The two were then snapped up by Frolunda HC and then drafted in the 2000 NHL Draft.
However, the big difference between the two is that Henrik plays goaltender whilst Joel is a center.
In fact, the two hold the distinction of being the first twins in the NHL to play against each other when one twin is in goal and are only the third set of twins to play against each other in NHL history.
Henrik is the starting goaltender for the New York Rangers whilst Joel is back at Frolunda after a five year spell in America.
Interestingly enough, the two are set to face off again as Henrik's Rangers play Joel's Frolunda as part of the 2011 Compuware NHL Premiere Challenge.
That will be an intriguing occasion in the Lundqvist household.
