Vancouver’s high-scoring twins Henrik and Daniel Sedin powered the Canucks to the league’s best record this season, but underneath it all, they’re a pair of softies as evidenced by their recent appearance at a mall wearing matching sweaters their grandmother knit them.

“Sure, we have the money to buy our own clothes but wearing this sweater reminds me of how much Grammy loves us,” said Henrik while signing autographs at a Toques & Things retail store in Vancouver’s Pacific Centre Mall. “She even used her cute little fingers to stitch our initials on our sweaters so we can tell which one is which.”

The other Sedin echoed his brother’s sentiment.

“Henrik and I just love Grammy so much we try to spend as much time with her as possible,” said Daniel. “That’s why it’s not so bad to get bounced out of the playoffs early every year. We get to go back home to Sweden and have her make us more ugly sweaters like these.”
