Edler (finger) will miss 4-to-6 weeks after undergoing surgery Monday on a fractured finger.

Edler was just one of many Canucks struggling to produce this season with a lone goal and two assists to go with his minus-8 rating. Despite his absence from the scoresheet, the defenseman continued to eat up big minutes -- averaging 23:42 of ice time per night -- prior to getting hurt. Alex Biega will be called up from a conditioning assignment at AHL Utica.
