Henrik and Daniel Sedin will be back playing with the Vancouver Canucks after signing a new contract just as they were about to become free agents. Both brothers signed 5 year, $30.5 million deal, which is a little short than the reported 12 year, $63 million contract they were looking for.

Canucks General Manager, Mike Gillis, flew to Sweden to talk with the twins in hope they would stay in Vancouver. Both Henrik and Daniel have been playing for the Canucks since they were first drafted in 1999.

The twins had their best season in 2008-2009, with Daniel scoring 31 goals and Henrik acheiving a career high of 22 goals.
