Two lucky Canucks fans won tickets to one of the last games the Sedin twins will play in the NHL. Congratulations to contest winner Nikki, who took her friend Myra with her to the game on Tuesday.

Henrik and Daniel Sedin are in their 17th season with the Vancouver Canucks and received a standing ovation from fans at Tuesday night’s home game against the Golden Knights. The twins announced that this would be their last NHL season in a letter posted to the team’s website on Monday.

The game ended with a 5-4 shootout loss for the Canucks but the Sedins have two more games to play. Their last home game will be against the Phoenix Coyotes and their final game is in Edmonton on Saturday against the Oilers.

Our team at Vancouver Is Awesome held a contest on Tuesday asking people to write in and thank the players for all they’ve done for Vancouver for a chance to win tickets.
