      Canucks' Yannick Weber: Collects first point

      Weber recorded his first point of the season in Thursday's loss to Dallas. It was a power-play assist for Weber, who set up fellow blueliner Alex Edler with a nice pass. Weber has only played four games this season, but he can be an offensive weapon when he is in the lineup. If Weber, who scored a career-high 11 goals last season, can stick on the Canucks' top power-play unit, expect some decent production.

    • Strikes on power play in win

      News: Yannick Weber picked up a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Thursday's preseason win over the Oilers.
      Analysis: It was the first points of the preseason for Yannick Weber, who has fired eight shots on goal in four games thus far. The 27-year-old has a booming shot and scored 11 times in just 65 games last season. If the power-play quarterback can stay healthy and in the lineup, he could be a sleeper pick this season. Weber is offensively talented and is coming off a career-high 21-point season on a team that lost defensemen Kevin Bieksa, Ryan Stanton and Adam Clendening in the offseason. With the opportunity to take on an expanded role this season, the former Canadien could be in for his biggest year yet.
    • Canucks Retain Weber

      News: Yannick Weber signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract Wednesday to remain with the Canucks, the Vancouver Sun reports.
      Analysis: Yannick Weber recorded 11 goals and 21 points in 65 games for the Canucks this past season. He should continue to remain on the fantasy radar in his return to Vancouver, on the heels of recording a career-high five power play goals for the team in 2014-15.
    • Canucks Don't Give Qualifying Offer To Weber

      News: Yannick Weber wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Canucks on Monday and will become an unrestricted free agent, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
      Analysis: The Canucks are still interested in re-signing Yannick Weber, but didn't want to have to go through salary arbitration in order to retain his services. Instead, they'll try to bring back Weber on a more club-friendly deal, though several other teams are sure to inquire on the defenseman as well. Weber tallied 11 goals and 10 assists in 65 games in 2014-15, doubling up his point total from a season earlier.
    • Weber Pots Two For Canucks

      News: Yannick Weber buried his 10th and 11th goals of the season on second-period power plays Thursday in a 5-0 romp against Arizona.
      Analysis: The big night broke up a six-game pointless skid for Yannick Weber, who's not generally known as an offensive player, but has been contributing points in fits and starts for the Canucks this year. He's now reached double-digit goals for the first time and is sitting on a career-high 21 points.
    • Canucks' Weber Scores For Third Straight Game

      News: Yannick Weber scored for the third straight game Thursday, potting the lone Canucks' goal in a loss to the Avalanche.
      Analysis: It was the second straight game Yannick Weber had scored a power-play goal, giving him three power-play tallies on the season. He's taking on an increased role with the Canucks, as indicated by his 22:09 of ice time Thursday. Playing on the top power-play unit, the 26-year-old has now recorded a power-play point in four straight games and is up to 19 points in 57 games on the season. Lining up with Dan Hamhuis on Vancouver's second defense pairing, Weber is being counted on heavily by the Canucks right now and is worth snatching up in some deeper leagues.
    • Canucks' Weber Collects Two Assists

      News: Yannick Weber dished out a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- and recorded six hits in 18:12 of ice time in Sunday's win over Arizona.
      Analysis: Yannick Weber's been playing well of late, racking up three points in his last two games and sporting a plus-6 rating over his last five outings. The 26-year-old is up to 17 points in 55 games and is seeing power-play time, so if you're looking for a decent point-producing defenseman in a very deep league, Weber could be worth scooping up.
    • Canucks' Weber In Line To Play Saturday

      News: Yannick Weber (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
      Analysis: Yannick Weber missed the last two games with the upper-body ailment, but looks to be good to go after getting in a full practice Thursday. He's expected to skate next to Dan Hamhuis on the third pairing during Saturday's game.
    • Canucks' Weber Likely To Sit Thursday

      News: Yannick Weber (undisclosed) is likely to sit out Thursday's game against the Kings, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
      Analysis: Yannick Weber didn't skate as part of a regular blue line pairing during Thursday's morning skate, so it appears he'll miss his second straight game with the injury.

    • Canucks' Weber Practices Wednesday

      News: Yannick Weber (undisclosed) took part in Wednesday's full practice, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
      Analysis: The injury forced Yannick Weber to sit out Monday's game against the Ducks, but his return to the ice Wednesday suggests a long-term absence isn't in the cards. That being said, the Canucks could opt to sit Weber for another game or two, so it's far from guaranteed that he'll be back in the lineup Thursday versus the Kings.
