article imageCanucks captain Henrik Sedin bags 600th assist in win over Flames

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 7, 2013 in Sports
Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin has done what only 75 NHL players have ever managed to do - notch his 600th assist. He set up Alex Burrows in the 2nd against the Flames Saturday to reach the milestone.
The passing for the 600th had characteristic Sedin flair to it as Henrik and his brother Daniel combined and Burrows only had to jam his stick between Mikka Kiprusoff's pads to score. The goal came at 7:24 of the 2nd and in the last minute of that middle frame Sedin got his 601st assist on an Alexander Edler goal. He also scored into an empty net as Vancouver beat Calgary, 5-2.
Sedin, who currently has a consecutive games played streak at 619 games, is sixth in assists among active players. Only Ray Whitney (647), Daniel Alfredsson (678), Teemu Selanne (755), Joe Thornton (782) and Jaromir Jagr (1,000) have more. The 600th moves him ahead of Alexei Kovalev, who retired last week with 599 assists. Daniel Sedin has 462 assists while the all-time leader is Wayne Gretzky with 1,963 assists.
Sedin is the first to record 600 assists as a Vancouver Canuck.
