Well it looks like the Sedin twins are going to finish their careers with the Vancouver Canucks after they both signed new deals says TSN.ca.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin avoided free agency at season’s end with each signing a four-year, $28 million contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks. The brothers will each earn an average of $7 million per season.

The Canucks selected the Swedish twins in the 1999 NHL entry draft and both parties remained loyal to each other through the course of the partnership.

“Daniel and Henrik are exemplary leaders, teammates and humanitarians and we’re very pleased to have them as part of our team for the long-term,” said general manager Mike Gillis. “Few players in the history of this club have had more significant roles in contributing to the success of this team and to our community and we look forward to many more years with their positive influence leading the way.”

Henrik is  the franchise leader in points and assists while Daniel ranks second  in scoring.
