So, who of the two Sedins is the superior player? Henrik Sedin is the solution, but just just. Henrik is a greater playmaker than his brother, which benefits everyone around him. He also owns a Hart Trophy and shown that he could accomplish it without Daniel two years ago. However, when it comes to scoring, Daniel wins every time.
Overall, both brothers are very close in skill set and it's hard to pick one over the other. If you ask me though, I would have to say that Henrik is the superior player thanks to his vision and passing skills.
Henrik Sedin: Henrik Sedin, just barely.
Daniel Sedin: Daniel Sedin wins by a landslide. He's more offensive minded player who can score goals and win games all by himself. He's also been more productive over his career, with 161 points in 164 games compared to Henrik's 159 in 166 games.
Beyond that, they're equal. They both are responsible for leading their teams at even strength, and they do so very well. Both are great passers, have good hands, and are effective defenders. They're both top-four players in the league, if not better. It's really a tie between them.
Sedin and his identical twin brother, Henrik, were born and reared in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, and played together throughout their careers; the duo were noted for their efficiency as a tandem. Their father, Dan, was a construction worker and later a taxi driver who died when Daniel was 26 years old.
Henrik was the first to break out of the pair, becoming one of the best defensemen in NHL history during his career with the Vancouver Canucks from 1991 to 2015. He is currently an assistant coach with the team.
Daniel followed suit, becoming one of the top power forwards in NHL history. He too is now an assistant coach with the Canucks.
They both remain active in the hockey community through their association with Ice Hockey Incorporated (III), which provides leadership and development opportunities to young people through sport.
Ice Hockey III was founded in 1992 by Daniel and Henrik after they had completed their playing careers. The twins believed that creating a new organization specifically designed to help children and teenagers learn about and enjoy ice hockey would be a good use of their time since they did not have anything else to do!
They also wanted to give back to the community that had given up on them when they were younger players looking for a place to call home.
Sedin and his identical twin brother, Daniel, were born and reared in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, and played together throughout their careers; the duo were recognized for their efficiency as a tandem. They are two of only three players to have won the Art Ross Trophy as the top scorer in the NHL during each season they have been eligible (the other being Wayne Gretzky and The Great One).
Their career scoring totals are nearly identical: 981 points between them (including the playoffs). However, Daniel has more goals than Henrik (928 vs 877) because he came into the league at a time when the NHL was less concerned with defensive play and thus allowed for more open ice for skilled players like himself and Jerzy Kuklinski to score at will.
They both represented Sweden at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. There, they combined for five goals and 11 points as the Swedes took home the silver medal.
Currently, Henrik is the general manager of the Vancouver Canucks while Daniel is an assistant coach. They both remain active in hockey-related activities through their ownership of the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League.
