Position: Left wing, plays on a line with his brother Henrik, a center
Drafted: Second overall in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks
2011-2012 Team: Vancouver Canucks
Last Season’s Stats: 41 goals, 63 assists, 104 points (82 games)
Daniel Sedin is a strong player, a force to be reckoned with.
His 41 goals were tied for first on the Vancouver Canucks with Ryan Kesler.
Daniel and his brother are able to make blind passes to each other and hit them almost every time, because they have played together for years.
They are arguably the best brother pair to ever play in hockey together, and they account for two-thirds of Vancouver's top line.
Daniel has been increasing his point totals nearly every year he has been playing in the NHL, and he has the drive and determination to score. His 63 assists show that not only can he score goals, but that he also can set them up.
He won the Ted Lindsey trophy last season as the League's Most Outstanding Player.
Not only does Daniel have the skill, but coming off of last season's agonizing loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, his team has the determination.
The Canucks are poised to make another run for the Stanley Cup this year, especially since they are returning most of the players that made a run for it last year.
They will have to overcome the challenge of Ryan Kesler not being 100 percent after his hip surgery, but they can and they will. He is expected to make a quick and full recovery.
