A few weeks from his 37th birthday, Daniel Sedin says the plan is for him and his brother Henrik to finish their careers as Vancouver Canucks.

Sedin joined The Playbook on Sportsnet 650 Vancouver on Monday and was asked by host Jawn Jang if the brothers’ mindset was to retire in Vancouver.

“Yeah, that’s our mindset,” Sedin said. “I think we have a great situation here.

“I think we’re at a spot now where we’re on the way up again and for us to have a chance to help us be a successful team again is really exciting.”

The Sedin’s are entering the final year of their contracts and Daniel said they haven’t talked about what the future holds when those deals expire.

If they do retire, the brothers will go down as two of the greatest Vancouver Canucks of all time. They have combined for 2,473 games, 607 goals and 2,006 points. Daniel’s 370 goals are the most by any player in a Canucks’ uniform as are Henrik’s 1,020 points.

The brothers’ best days may be behind them (22-year-old Bo Horvat led the team in scoring last year), but Daniel says he hopes the young guys looking to take their spot can see Henrik and him as good examples of what it takes to be successful in the NHL.
