Sedin was drafted 3rd overall in 1999, along with his twin brother Daniel. The two began their career in the Elitserien with Modo in 1997.

The two played for MoDo until 2000, when they joined the Canucks. The Sedin twins have been excellent together, and Henrik had a career high 71 assists and 81 points in 2006-07.
Henrik played for Sweden at 7 different international competitions, winning a gold medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics.
