    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Done for season

    Edler (leg) was ruled out for the season with a broken leg by GM Jim Benning, Mark Spector of reports. Edler will face a difficult recovery, but should be expected to return to Vancouver ready to go next season. When the 29-year-old was injured in early February, he was stuck in a 23-game goalless drought. The defenseman did hit the 20-point mark for the ninth consecutive year and shows no signs of stopping that trend in 2016-17.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: On long-term injured reserve

    Edler (leg) has been placed on long-term injured reserve, reports Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun. Moving Edler to long-term IR will open up some cap space for a potential deal with Nikita Tryamkin, a 6-foot-7 defenseman they drafted in 2014, who's been playing in Russia.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Expected to miss six weeks

    Edler has been dealt a six-week timetable for his return from a fractured fibula. A big loss for the Canucks, Edler's long-term absence will force the club to shuffle their defensive pairings to account for the loss of team's leader in average ice time. In addition, the Canucks lost a valuable contributor on the power play. It appears Chris Tanev may be the biggest beneficiary on that front, receiving 3:13 of power play time in the last game compared to an average of 1:06 on the season. Edler's status should continue to receive updates as he begins the road to recovery, but a return remains a ways off at this point.

    Edler has a fractured fibula and has no timetable for his recovery. After initially reporting that he could miss 2-3 weeks, further testing discovered that he has a fractured fibula.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Out with foot injury

    Edler (foot) will undergo more tests but is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a foot injury, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. Edler's timeline is up in the air, but the Canucks are concerned about him missing a couple of weeks with this injury. In 52 games this season, Edler has six goals and 20 points with a minus-8 rating and 46 penalty minutes. His loss, along with Brandon Sutter's, leads to a hole on the team's top powerplay unit.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Earns assist but minus-3 Saturday

    Edler earned an assist but skated to a minus-3 in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Pittsburgh. Edler actually has points in back-to-back games and has now reached the 20-point plateau for the ninth time in his 10-year NHL career. He's not going to come anywhere close to the 49 points he put up in 2011-12, but the veteran blueliner is good for at least 30 and could push for 40 if he and the Canucks can get hot down the stretch.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Will play Wednesday

    Edler (illness) will rejoin the lineup Wednesday against the Hurricanes. Edler took part in an optional skate Wednesday morning, making it a likely scenario that he would rejoin the lineup following an illness that held him out of practice Tuesday. That's indeed the case, and the blueliner seems likely to slot back in alongside Chris Tanev.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Misses practice Tuesday

    Edler didn't practice Tuesday due to an illness. Edler's absence at practice Tuesday leaves his status for Wednesday's game against the Hurricanes in doubt. It'd be a big loss for the Canucks if he's ultimately unable to go against Carolina, as Edler has played well this season, notching 17 points (six goals, 11 assists) in 39 games. Expect an update on the 29-year-old blueliner's status following Wednesday's morning skate.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Logs two points in win

    Edler picked up a goal and an assist on six shots Wednesday against the Rangers. Edler saw a team-high 25:05 of ice time, and made his presence felt for every second of it. The 29-year-old defensemen has responded well to being entrusted with a significant offensive role in Vancouver this season, as he is on pace to break the 40-point mark for the third time in his career.

    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.
