Can you name all 39 players to have scored a goal assisted by both Sedins? [QUIZ]

Playing on a line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin means scoring opportunities. “If you don’t score lots of points in that situation, you don’t belong there,” Mikael Samuelsson once said. “You can’t fail no matter how little talent you might have.”

He’s got a point. In Daniel and Henrik’s 11 seasons with the Canucks, “assisted by Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin” (or vice versa) has appeared on the scoresheet a staggering 223 times. And, considering the role of the third Sedin has been played by more people than Hamlet, 39 different Canucks have played the finisher in these instances.

Which brings us to today’s quiz: how many of the 39 can you name? I submit that there is no way you can name all 39. My guess is that even the diehards won’t be able to get beyond 35. Consider yourself challenged.

Super-helpful tips: The answers are in alphabetical order and you only need to enter last names. Also, for secret bonus points, name the only player to ever accomplish the feat at an NHL All-Star Game.

Be sure to post your results in the comments.

    Too embarassed to admit my score. But this is only my 3rd season being a fan (assuming that we HAVE a season! *tears*).

    27 out of 39.
    Thankfully that included most of the pre-Burrows 3rd Sedin brigade.

    I strongly hope everyone knows who really needed the puck from the twins (and got it at least twice).

    I got 28. I imagine Harrison & Co take particular pleasure in Mr Bulis being on this list.

    25. It quickly morphed into an exercise of “How many players that ever played for the Canucks can I think of?”

    Is there something to be said for getting the most obscure names on the list(Arvedson, Baron, Baumgartner, King, Shannon) and missing some ridiculously obvious ones(Ehrhoff, Ruutu, Samuelsson, PYATT)?

      Really? You guessed Todd Warriner? Hmm…

      31 for me. Thought about Murray Baron but disregarded that. Then again I did try Willie Mitchell…surprised I missed Keith Ballard and Ryan Shannon. Others I missed were from when I was younger, so I’m okay with that.

    32… but it should’ve been 33, I just didn’t know how to spell Kraijcek. I missed Arvedson, Lachance, Shannon, Warriner, Smolinski, and for some reason Lukowich which made no sense because immediately upon seeing his name show up I was like “Well duh”, the Lukowich goal is actually my favourite Sedinery moment ever (it was against the Sabres).

    Missed Arvedson, Cooke, Klatt, Krajicek, Lachance, Pyatt, Shannon, Smolinski, Tambellini, and Warriner. I thought I’d get at least 30! Can’t believe I missed Pyatt and Cooke.

      Hell, I remember that one. First game of the season, beautiful pass, Ballard converts and every Canucks fan goes “Holy crap, he’s gonna earn his salary this year!” Then he didn’t. And we all went “aw.”

    Slightly ashamed to admit I ran out of time at 20. I remembered Pyatt, but totally drew a blank trying to remember his name & wasted time trying to force recall (not that I was going to get many more, anyway). ;)

    I was surprised that Malhotra and Lapierre didn’t make the list. I figured they would have caught a goal on a line change at some point.

    27. Shame that I missed Bulis. Double shame that I missed the original triplet aka Klatt. The defense were easy, I just kept thinking who played on the power play. Rome was the only d-man that I missed.

    Awesome that Burrows has more than 2nd and 3rd combined.

    36. Missed Lachance (forgot he even existed), Smolinski (feel like I should have got him) and Warriner. Probably most proud of getting Krajicek.

    29. Though that would be 30 with the Scott Hartnell bonus point, I believe.

    Can’t believe I missed Sopel, Ohlund, Bertuzzi and Morrison…

      Oooo, perhaps I’m wrong. It seems Mr. Hartnell contributed an assist rather than a goal.

    It’s funny that Anson Carter left because he thought he was the better than the twins. You can’t fool the stats Anson, 33 and 22…..that’s right, quite ironic that year he had 33 goals and 22 assists.
