Henrik Sedin passes ‘Rocket’ Richard in all-time scoring

Here's some good news as the Vancouver Canucks stagger to the finish line.

With an assist on brother Daniel Sedin's first-period goal Thursday, Henrik Sedin passed Montreal Canadiens legend Maurice "Rocket" Richard for 88th on the NHL's all-time scoring list.

Henrik has 966 points in 1,157 games. Richard finished with 965 points in 978 games.

The Canucks lost again Thursday, blowing a 2-0 lead to the Nashville Predators and falling in a shootout. On the bright side, they scored - which they hadn't done in the three previous games - and picked up a point in the standings.

"It's tough to lose, but it was one of the best games we've played in a while," Henrik said.

One thought on “Henrik Sedin passes ‘Rocket’ Richard in all-time scoring”

  1. What an amazing accomplishment for Henrik. The Sedin’s have been quietly going about their business, collecting points but now the accolades are about to begin as they start surpassing some pretty amazing hockey players stats.

    I often think that they Sedin’s take too much abuse from the media and fans alike. These guys are talented! They are excellent role models and really should get more respect.

    Canuck fans have been fortunate watching these guys play for their entire NHL careers.

    We just do not know how lucky we have been.
