      Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Will be re-evaluated in two weeks

      Sutter has been diagnosed with an abdominal strain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks. Coach Jeff Blashill indicated earlier in the week that Sutter was close to a return, but a visit to a specialist yielded bad news for the 26-year-old centre. Apparently, the strain is significant enough to keep Sutter out of action for at least another two weeks -- he's already missed close to two weeks -- and there's no guarantee he will be cleared for action after his follow-up exam.

      Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Out again Saturday

      Sutter (lower body) will miss Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports. Sutter has skipped the past four games because of the issue, and it appears that absence will extend to five games with Saturday now out of the question. He'll next receive a chance to rejoin the lineup Sunday against the Devils, but there's no indication at this point that he's on the cusp of returning.

      Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Still day-to-day

      Sutter (lower body) remains day-to-day ahead of Wednesday night's matchup with the Jets, Sean C. Reynolds of Sportsnet reports. Sutter's ailment has caused him to miss the past three games, but by not drawing into the lineup Wednesday, he'll have all the way until Saturday to heal before the next contest for the Canucks. Vancouver has lost three straight games and they really could use Sutter as he is a proficient penalty killer and also adds decent offensive totals at the center position. Through 16 games, Sutter has four goals and assists apiece.

      Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Won't return Monday

      Sutter (lower body) won't return to the lineup Monday against the Canadiens, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports. Sutter was believed to potentially be an option for Monday, but it appears he'll rest for a few more days, with Hunter Shinkaruk drawing into the lineup to make his NHL debut in his place. Sutter's next chance to rejoin the lineup will come Wednesday against the Jets.

      Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Close to returning

      Sutter (lower body) did not practice Sunday, but coach Jeff Blashill indicated that he could return Monday, Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun reports. Sutter has missed each of the past two contests because of the lower-body issue, but it sounds as though is nearing a return. However, his absence from practice Sunday doesn't bode as well as if he had been out there. The decision on his status should come at some point Monday.

      Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Dealing with lower-body injury

      Sutter has been dealing with a lower-body injury, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 AM reports. Sutter was held out of Thursday's contest against the Senators, and it now appears as though this may have been the reason. He's being considered day-to-day for the time being, so it's possible he's ready to draw back into the lineup in time for Saturday's contest against the Maple Leafs.

      Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Scores third goal in loss

      Sutter scored his third goal of the season on the power play in Saturday's loss to the Red Wings. It was the first power-play tally of the season for Sutter, who now has six points in eight games. The 26-year-old has looked good with Vancouver, firing 19 shots on goal and producing in a top-six role. He won't produce huge point totals, but another 20-goal season is a realistic possibility.

    • Sutter Signs Five-Year Contract With Canucks

      News: Brandon Sutter signed a five-year, $21.875 million contract with the Canucks on Tuesday.
      Analysis: Canucks GM Jim Benning had previously stated that he viewed Brandon Sutter as a cornerstone player for the team, and Tuesday's move certainly confirms that sentiment. Benning and the Canucks will hope that Sutter can step in as a legitimate second-line center in 2015-16, a commodity the team hasn't enjoyed for quite some time. Sutter registered 33 points (21 goals, 12 assists) in 80 games with the Penguins last season, and even though an upgraded role awaits him, it's difficult to imagine the 26-year-old taking a huge step forward in his production. Beyond projected top liners Daniel Sedin and Radim Vrbata, the Canucks aren't particularly rich in scoring wingers that could complement Sutter.
