Sedin twins going to the NHL All-Star Game

Gouche

When the two Sedin twins were named on Tuesday to the NHL All-Star game, the million dollar question being raised was whether they would once again play on the same team. The Sedins who were named along with Ryan Kessler to represent the Vancouver Canucks, have played together virtually their entire life. Going back to minor hockey and through their days with Modo in the Swedish Hockey League and the Canucks these two have always played on the same line. Henrik, who has 45 assist has been the set up man for twin Daniel who has 25 goals. A couple of days prior to the all-star game, two captains will be picked to select their respective teams in what will be a televised draft. With this new format, there is a good chance that the Sedins could be picked on different teams. “That one is going to be interesting,” NHL executive Brendan Shanahan said. “There are a lot of questions with this format that people are curious to see answered.” On Tuesday the league’s hockey operations department released the 36 names of players chosen to play in the January 30 all-star game which is being played at the RBC Center in North Carolina. Kessler, who has 23 goals and 40 points was another worthy selection from a Vancouver Canucks team who as of January 12 sit first overall with 62 points.
