What was always inevitable is now official: Henrik and Daniel Sedin will have their jerseys retired by the Vancouver Canucks next season, owner Francesco Aquilini said, according to Sportsnet's Irfaan Gaffar.
The decision to wait until next year coincides with the team's 50th anniversary season.
Henrik, who wore No. 33, and Daniel, who donned No. 22, retired at the end of last season. Their names are littered all over the franchise's record books; Henrik and Daniel rank first and second, respectively, in games played and points.
