      Canucks' Alexander Edler: Collects two assists in win

      Edler recorded a pair of assists in 24:03 of ice time in Saturday's win over the Blackhawks. Edler's fantastic season continues, as he's now got two goals and six points in his last seven games. Edler has recorded a power-play point in four of his last five games as the Sedin twins continue to tear it up and not let age define them. Considering the heavy minutes Edler logs and his solid plus-6 rating, you should feel confident slotting the 29-year-old into your lineup every night the Caucks are in action.

      Canucks' Alexander Edler: Nets power-play goal in loss

      Edler scored a power-play goal and fired six shots on goal in Thursday's loss to the Senators. It was a very active night for Edler, who logged 23:30 of ice time in the defeat. The 29-year-old, who has scored twice in his last three games, is up to four goals and seven points in 16 games on the season. He's logging heavy minutes, skating on the first power-play unit and is playing very sound defensively. Having been credited with 35 shots on goal and 18 PIM, Edler, who is also sporting an impressive plus-7 rating, has been an all-around fantasy asset thus far. Keep him rolling.

      Canucks' Alexander Edler: Nets power-play goal Thursday against Stars

      Edler scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars. Edler also had three shots and eight blocks in a game-high 25:48. He picked the top left corner of the net with a slap shot that gave the Canucks a 2-1 lead in the second. Edler will likely hover around a 30-point pace, but could score a surprising amount of points given his high ice time and PP minutes.

      Canucks' Alexander Edler: Not playing Saturday

      Edler (illness) is ruled out for Saturday's game, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports. Yannick Weber will get the start in Edler's place. It's unlikely the 29-year-old will miss much time, however more information should be available after the game.

    • Collects two helpers in preseason finale

      News: Alexander Edler collected a pair of assists in Sunday's preseason finale win over the Oilers.
      Analysis: It was the first two points of the preseason for Alexander Edler, who had been held off the scoresheet in the team's previous three games. The 29-year-old recorded 12 shots on goal in the 2015 preseason and is coming off an eight-goal, 31-point season in 2014-15. Edler may never duplicate the success of his 49-point campaign in 2011-12, but he's a top pairing defenseman who racks up solid PIM totals, fires lots of pucks on net and has scored five power-play goals in five of his last six full seasons. If you lower your expectations a tad, Edler could be a very productive fantasy asset in 2015-16.
    • Canucks' Edler Assists In Win

      News: Alexander Edler handed out an assist on Nick Bonino's second-period goal in Thursday's Game 5 win over the Flames.
      Analysis: The Canucks have largely been bereft of offensively production from their blue line this season, but Alexander Edler has done his part to alter that narrative over the last month-plus. Dating back to March 17, Edler has posted three goals and 14 assists over 19 games. That's elite production for a defenseman, and until he cools over an extended period of time, Edler should be held in high regard by those in playoff pools.
