Former Vancouver Canucks players Henrik and Daniel Sedin will be inducted this summer in Penticton

For years, there were two names synonymous with the Vancouver Canucks, so it is no surprise that Henrik and Daniel Sedin are being inducted into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame at the first possible chance.

The long-time, popular members of the Vancouver Canucks will be inducted along with Okanaganite and NHL referee, Shane Heyer, who will be inducted into the Referee/Linesman Category.

For 17 seasons, the Sedins were a core part of the Canucks lineup. They served as the rock the team could anchor themselves to year after year, and through changes in roster and management. From their first game until their last, there was at least one Sedin on the ice for every single game the Canucks played. Between the two, the brothers hold seven all-time Canucks records.
