Sedins to play for Sweden at hockey worlds
Vancouver Canucks forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin and defenseman Alex Edler will play for Sweden at the world hockey championships.
J.P. Barry, the Sedins' agent, confirmed Wednesday the twins will play for their homeland at the tournament. They will leave Vancouver for Stockholm on Friday after attending media availability to discuss the disappointing end of the Canucks' season.
The Swedes became available after the Canucks were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs on Tuesday by the San Jose Sharks in four games.
This will mark the fifth time the Sedins have represented Sweden in world championship play. They helped their homeland win bronze medals in 2001 and 1999.
