The Hockey Hall of Fame festivities are in full swing as former Canucks Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, and Roberto Luongo prepare to be officially inducted into the Hall on Monday.
But before that, the three — along with other hockey legends, including Canucks AGM Cammi Granato who holds the U.S. Women’s National Team points record — took part in the Legends Classic alumni game today.
The Sedins and Granato suited up for Team Sundin (yellow), while Roberto Luongo suited up as a forward for Team Lindros (orange).
Luongo jumped at the chance to line up for a faceoff against Henrik Sedin, and actually managed to win the draw, which we’re sure we’ll be hearing about for a long, long time.
Skating on a line with Eric Lindros, Luongo lost a draw against Henrik later in the game, with Hank making it look somewhat easy against his former teammate.
The game ended with a final score of 10-6, with Team Lindros besting Team Sundin.
Luongo scored a goal in the game, and celebrated by performing the griddy dance move, a move he revealed post game his son asked him to pull if he scored.
Before the game, the three players received their Honoured Member blazers.
