Henrik Sedin Wins King Clancy Memorial Trophy

New, comments

Henrik justly recognized for leadership qualities, on and off the ice.

After the disaster that was 2015-16, no Canucks are up for purely on-ice awards in Las Vegas. But Henrik Sedin just took home the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, for leadership on and off the ice and for community involvement.

Rob Williams of the Daily Hive is there and snapped this picture at the ceremony:

And the Canucks tweeted a video of the trophy presentation (by Mark Messier, ick) and Henrik's acceptance speech.

I don't believe even Vancouver Canucks fans fully appreciate the hockey players and the men the Sedins are. We've been spoiled by the steadiness of their contributions, both on the ice and in Vancouver city. We'll all be inestimably poorer when they move on.

Credit to the NHL for recognizing Henrik Sedin's mammoth contributions.

And I thought that kid from Room was going to be the only Canuck representation on stage in Las Vegas tonight.
