Henrik and Daniel Sedin: The Epitome of Identical

March 19th, 2010 by Matthew Hogan Leave a reply »

Henrik and Daniel Sedin—I put Henrik first not because he has more points than his brother this season, but because he is older by about six minutes—are identical to the fullest extent of the word.

Henrik is more of a play-maker, while Daniel is more of a goal-scorer—and this is one of the few differences you’ll find between the two.

Henrik stands at 6’2” and weighs 192 pounds. Meanwhile, Daniel stands an inch shorter than his older brother and weighs 185 pounds—not exactly identical in size, but close.

Before entering the NHL together, the Sedins played for Modo Hockey in the Swedish Elite League.

In 1999, Henrik and Daniel were selected as co-recipients of the Golden Puck, which is awarded to the player of the year in the Swedish Elite League. Never before has the Golden Puck been awarded to two players in one season.
