Canucks captain Henrik Sedin gets 1,000th NHL point

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Henrik Sedin has the 1,000th point of his NHL career.

The captain of the Vancouver Canucks reached the milestone Friday night with a goal in the second period against Florida. It came at the expense of Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo, who was Sedin's teammate in Vancouver from 2006-2014.

Sedin became the 85th player in NHL history to reach 1,000 points. Washington Capitals sniper Alex Ovechkin accomplished the feat on Jan. 11.
