Henrik Sedin’s beautiful move to escape a defender is pure hockey magic

Despite his age, 37-year-old Henrik Sedin continues to shine in the NHL. Just look at this awesome move from last nights game against the Senators.

Henrik Sedin has played in 1250 NHL games. Over the course of his career, he has recorded 1022 points – with 785 of those points being assists.
The 6’2” Centre is the franchise leader in assists for Vancouver.

Last night, we were once again gifted with Henrik’s ability to dish the biscuit to his linemates.

‘Sedin magic

With Ottawa Senators defender Mark Borowiecki pressuring Henrik, the evasive Sedin skated behind the net and used the back of the goal to bank it to himself. After he lost Borowiecki, Sedin slid the puck in front of the net. Eventually, it found Chris Tanev’s stick where he tickled the twine.

It was a beautiful play from Henrik and another example of ‘Sedin Magic.
