The Vancouver Canucks have made a significant announcement: Henrik and Daniel Sedin, two of the best players in the team's history, are set for enhanced roles in the front office.

Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin highlighted the importance of the Sedins' promotion:
"Including the Sedins more in our day-to-day coaching duties will be hugely beneficial to our group both on and off the ice," Allvin said. "Both Daniel and Henrik bring a very unique perspective and competitive mindset to our staff. Their knowledge and ability to teach the game is a huge plus, and they fit in extremely well with our group."
Henrik and Daniel Sedin, arguably the most iconic pair of brothers in NHL history, were drafted together in 1998. They played 17 seasons with the Canucks, with Henrik amassing 1,070 points, including 830 assists, and Daniel scoring 393 goals, totaling 1,041 points. Both have their jersey numbers retired and hanging in the rafters of Rogers Arena.
Since retiring, the Sedins have served as special advisors to the general manager and were later promoted to Vancouver's player development department. Their enhanced roles mark another step in their post-playing careers, bringing their extensive experience and insight directly into the team's daily operations.
With these promotions, the Canucks are clearly positioning themselves to leverage the Sedins' legendary status and expertise, aiming for a brighter future both on and off the ice.
