  • Canucks' Radim Vrbata: Will not be re-signed by Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/23/16) Vrbata (knee) will be let go by the Canucks according to general manager Jim Benning on Thursday.

    Vrbata was sidelined for the end of the 2015-16 season, which could cause potential suitors to hesitate when considering whether to bring him into the fold. At 35 years old, the winger could be facing an uphill battle to earn playing time due to his age as well as defensive concerns. In 63 contests, Vrbata was an astonishing minus-30 despite tallying 27 points offensively. Even if the veteran does get picked up, it is doubtful he will secure a contract anything like his two-year, $10 million deal he signed with the Vancouver in 2014.

    Canucks' Radim Vrbata: Done for season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/16) Vrbata (knee) has been shut down for the season.

    An apparent right knee injury that Vrbata suffered Friday against the Oilers has led the Canucks to shut him down for the season. The 34-year-old winger, who finishes the 2015-16 campaign with 13 goals and 27 points in 63 games, to go along with a minus-30 rating, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Canucks' Radim Vrbata: Out Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/16) Vrbata (lower body) won't play Saturday against the Blues.

    Vrbata is just the latest addition to the laundry list of injuries the Canucks are currently dealing with. The 34-year-old winger has had a highly disappointing season, notching just 27 points (13 goals, 14 assists) in 63 games. He'll hope to return to action Tuesday against the Jets.

    Canucks' Radim Vrbata: Collects pair of assists Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/16) Vrbata registered two assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the visiting Predators.

    Vancouver hasn't been all that kind to Vrbata in his second season with the team, as his points Saturday bring him to just 27 in 60 games -- well off his pace of the 31 goals and 63 points of 2014-15. While that's disappointing in it's own right, his absolutely abhorrent minus-29 rating has really hurt owners counting on the 34-year-old for his volume-shooting (194 shots on goal) and goal-scoring prowess. To make matters worse, he's only found twine 13 times this year, which has him on track to finish with the lowest goal total over a full NHL season since 2006-07, when he potted 14 with Chicago.

    Canucks' Radim Vrbata: Sets up pair of goals in victory Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/16) Vrbata collected two assists in Saturday's win over the Predators.

    Vrbata has been playing very well of late, firing four shots on goal in each of his last two games and racking up four points (two goals) in his last four outings. After striking for 31 goals in his first year with Vancouver, his 13 goals this season can be viewed as a big disappointment. He's still firing lots of pucks on net, but Vrbata is currently skating on the fourth line and is no longer on the first power-play unit, so don't expect him to continue piling on points at the rates he has done in the past.

  • April 12, 2015: Canucks' Vrbata Logs Two Assists
    Vrbata grabbed two assists in Saturday's win over the Oilers.Vrbata finishes the season with 31 goals and 63 points in 79 games. Now that's how you make a first impression with a new team. The fantasy stud, who potted 12 power-play goals, seven-game winners and recorded 267 shots on goal in his first year with Vancouver, will pay great dividends in playoff pools if the Canucks can get past the first round.
