It was a special night at Rogers Arena on Friday night, as Canucks captain Henrik Sedin became the 85th player in history to record 1000 points in the NHL. What made it even more special for Canucks fans was that he scored every single point in a Canucks uniform.
The only person in the building likely not impressed by the milestone was Jaromir Jagr, who is nearing 2000 points.
Henrik got the milestone point in style, scoring a beautiful goal on former teammate Roberto Luongo. Naturally the primary assist came from his brother Daniel, who is now just 32 points away from 1000 himself.
