Hamhuis recorded a plus-2 rating and blocked three shots in Wednesday's loss to the Penguins. While it was another good defensive showing from Hamhuis, he's stuck at just two assists in 10 games thus far. His averaged ice time has dipped to 19:12 this season and he's no longer on the power play, so don't expect the 32-year-old to produce a ton of offense. After two consecutive seasons from Hamhuis in the 20-point range, it's fairly evident what you're getting with him.
Hamhuis will be in the lineup against Philadelphia on Monday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. After missing Vancouver's previous three games with a lower-body injury, Hamhuis will make his return to the Canucks' lineup, where he is likely to play with Yannick Weber on the second defensive pairing. Hamhuis' production is down this year, tallying just two assists in eight games, and is likely due to a reduction in minutes from 21:32 to 19:15 per game.
Hamhuis (lower body) returned to the ice for practice Sunday morning. Hamhuis was ruled out for the Canucks' three-game road trip because of the lower-body injury he suffered against Detroit that sent him to injured reserve. His presence at practice Sunday likely indicates he's close to rejoining the lineup, but more should be revealed about his potential availability Monday at the team's gameday morning skate.
Hamhuis (undisclosed) will not travel with the Canucks for the team's upcoming two-game road trip. Hamhuis was reportedly held out of Tuesday night's tilt against Montreal due to "maintenance reasons," but it appears as though the ailment may be a bit more serious than initially expected, as Hamhuis is now set to miss Vancouver's next two games with the injury. His next chance to return to action will come Monday against the Flyers.
Hamhuis will miss Tuesday night's contest against the Canadiens due to "maintenance reasons," TSN Radio Vancouver reports. Hamhuis reportedly could play, but apparently the team is taking the conservative route with the defender. Expect the Canucks to provide an update on his status in the coming days, knowing his next chance to suit up will be Thursday for a road game in Dallas.
