"We started the year with the mindset that a decision would be made in the postseason".

After discussions with their families, it became clear this would be their last season.

While the club's fans are sure to feel the sting of losing their star duo, a number of the pair's National Hockey League contemporaries offered their own thoughts on watching the twins walk away, seeing them remain effective into their 30's, and appreciating their impact on the game.

The Sedins have still been among the Canucks' best players this season despite their age. It's time to help with homework every night. But it's time to focus on our families and life after hockey. "It's time to be at home for dinner every night", the letter continues.

The game will miss their skill, their shared brain, their short passes, their deflections from the high slot, their dignity and class on-and-off the ice.

The Canucks play the Vegas Golden Knights at home on Tuesday and the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday. We also want to share these games with our families, friends, teammates, coaches, trainers, staff and everyone at the Canucks who supported us. On the bright side, the Canucks will now enter a transition period with $14 million in additional cap space, which could prove to be the twins' final assist for the organization. Resale ticket prices on StubHub for the team's final two home games also began to increase, with upper bowl tickets starting around $185 Dollars for Thursday's game. This is our family's home.

Per their letter, the Sedins intend to remain a part of the Canucks community in some capacity following their retirement.

It was 19 years ago when Daniel and Henrik Sedin were drafted second and third overall in the 1999 #NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks.

Henrik and Daniel Sedin are hanging up their skates.

They will also finish fourth in all-time combined points for siblings in the National Hockey League. The pair began playing hockey together at the age of 8 and began their professional hockey careers with Modo Hockey in 1997.

The retirement of the Sedins is a definite sign that the Canucks' rebuild has been fully set into motion.

They chose to break the news now because the Canucks did not make the Stanley Cup Playoffs and will finish the season at home against the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday (10 p.m. ET; SNP, ATTSN-RM, NHL.TV) and Arizona Coyotes on Thursday, then at the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. The Sedins have combined for two Art Ross Trophies, a Hart Memorial Trophy as the league's MVP, and a Stanley Cup Finals appearance in 2011. Daniel won the Art Ross a season later with a league-leading 104 points (41 goals, 63 assists). At 37 years old, their futures, with the Canucks or otherwise, were up in the air, but they had previously said they did not want to play with another franchise.
