The Sedin Twins

When you watch the Vancouver Canucks, you may think you're seeing double. Don't worry, you don't need glasses. It's just the Sedins who are causing double trouble for the rest of the league. Daniel and Henrik are identical twins. One plays center ice, the other plays left wing. One scores more goals, one gets more assists. Other than that, it's tough to tell the pair of redheads apart.

Daniel and Henrik grew up in the town of Ornskoldsvik in Sweden - the same town that produced NHL superstars Peter Forsberg and Markus Naslund. The two started playing hockey together at the age of eight. So it's no surprise that they always seem to know exactly where each other is on the ice at all times. The Sedins were picked 2nd and 3rd overall in the 1999 NHL draft. The Vancouver Canucks made a trade at the last minute so they could have the two of them playing together on the same line. And the old phrase "two heads are better than one" appears to have worked out. Daniel is scoring more goals and Henrik is getting more assists. Both are confusing fans and coaches. Even head coach Marc Crawford admits he still has trouble telling the two apart during practices.

But hockey can be a rough game. So eventually one of them will probably lose a tooth or get a puck in the face and the Sedins'identity won't be quite so confusing.
