The Canucks have lost 4 games in a row and both Sedins went pointless in their 2 weekend games.
But if we’re looking for positives after discouraging losses to the Blackhawks and Coyotes, consider this: Hank still leads the NHL with 20 assists.
With the first quarter of this season in the books, Hank’s on pace for 90 assists – 7 more than his 83 assists last season when he won the Art Ross Trophy.
Since the 2007/2008 season, Hank has 226 assists in 266 games – an average of 0.85 assists/game. He has more total assists than Joe Thornton (208). He has a higher assists per game average than Sidney Crosby (0.84).
As it turns out, the two best playmakers in the last few years will face each other this Friday when Henrik Sedin and the Canucks square off against Joe Thornton and the Sharks.
As always, the Canucks will be giving out all sorts of prizes at the Tweetup so please do come out and join us.
