Henrik (pictured rear) is the team's captain and all-time leading scorer, and Daniel (pictured front) serves as alternate captain in home games.

Daniel was selected second overall by the Canucks in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, and Henrik was picked third. Henrik was the team's leading points scorer from 2007–08 to 2009–10, and in 2009–10, he won the Hart Memorial and Art Ross Trophies as the NHL's most valuable player and leading point-scorer, respectively. Daniel won the Art Ross Trophy the following season. They were co-recipients of the Victoria Stipendium as Swedish athletes of the year in 2011.
