  • Florida Trades For Shirokov

    News: Florida traded Mike Duco in exchange for Shirokov on Saturday, TSN's Farhan Lalji reports.
    Analysis: Shirokov had signed with CSKA Moscow of the KHL previously, so it's tough to tell whether Florida will reap anything from this. He has a better chance to play for Florida than he did Vancouver, for what that might be worth to Shirokov.
  • Shirokov Headed To KHL

    News: Shirokov has left the Canucks organization to play for CSKA Moscow of the KHL, the Vancouver Sun reports.
    Analysis: Shirokov showed some promise in his two seasons on this side of the pond, totaling 103 points (44 G, 59 A) in 152 games with Manitoba of the AHL, but he was never able to stick at the NHL level. At 25, he's still young enough to make a return to the NHL in the future, but for now he'll play in Russia.
  • Canucks Extend Qualifying Offer To Shirokov

    News: The Canucks extended a qualifying offer to Shirokov earlier this week, the Vancouver Sun reports.
    Analysis: The Canucks will now have the right to match any offers Shirokov receives during free agency. The 25-year-old Russian forward spent the majority of the 2010-11 season with Manitoba of the AHL, but he did manage to play in two games with Vancouver. He had 58 points (22 G, 36 A) in 76 games with the Moose, so there's some talent here, but Shirokov will have to prove he's ready to make the jump to the big pond in camp to warrant much fantasy consideration next season.
  • Canucks Send Shirokov Back To Manitoba Of The AHL

    News: The Canucks sent Shirokov to Manitoba of the AHL on Sunday, the Vancouver Province reports.
    Analysis: Shirokov lit the lamp in his first game up with Vancouver, but he quickly found himself on the outside of Canucks coach Alain Vigneault's skating rotation. The 25-year-old Russian has shown promise in the past, but he'll need to prove he can stick with the Canucks for a longer period before holding value in non-keeper leagues.
  • Canucks' Shirokov Set For Press Box Duty

    News: Shirokov will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's tilt against the Flames, the Vancouver Province reports.
    Analysis: There was plenty of buzz around Shirokov when he notched a goal in his season debut Tuesday, but he appears to have already fallen out of favor with Canucks coach Alain Vigneault. Mason Raymond will replace the young Russian on the Canucks' second line.
  • Canucks' Shirokov Scores First NHL Goal

    News: Shirokov scored his first NHL goal in Tuesday's loss to Colorado.
    Analysis: Shirokov skated on Vancouver's second line and looked pretty good doing it, with the goal and six shots. His current value is limited, but he's a player to keep an eye on moving forward.
  • Shirokov Expected To Skate On Canucks' Second Line

    News: Shirokov is expected to skate on the Canucks' second line in Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, the Vancouver Sun reports.
    Analysis: With Jeff Tambellini slumping, Vancouver is looking to spark its offense. Shirokov teased fantasy owners with an outstanding preseason in 2009, but he wasn't able to translate that success to regular season production at the NHL level. He has shown improvements with Manitoba of the AHL this season and might finally be ready to contribute for the Canucks. Shallower formats can play wait-and-see, but deeper leagues should consider Shirokov a decent speculative add at this point of the season.
  • Canucks Recall Shirokov

    News: The Canucks recalled Shirokov from AHL Manitoba on Monday, according to Manitoba's official Twitter page.
    Analysis: Shirokov scored 15 points over his last 12 AHL games, so he could provide an even further boost to a hot Canucks team. Shirokov will join the Canucks' fourth line off the bat, but he could be worth a speculative add in deeper leagues with his scoring touch.
  • Shirokov Cut By the Canucks

    News: Shirokov was cut by the Canucks from their NHL roster over the weekend, the Vancouver Sun reports.
    Analysis: Shirokov will try to get his conditioning back in the AHL.
  • Canucks' Shirokov Held Out of Practice for Poor Conditioning

    News: Shirokov was held out of practice Monday because his conditioning was not at an acceptable level, the Vancouver Province reports.
    Analysis: The Russian winger spent time with Canucks fitness coach Roger Takahashi and skills coach Glenn Carnegie instead of practicing with the rest of the team. Shirokov is coming off a poor performance in his first preseason game and will need to start showing improvements if he hopes to nab a roster spot.
