  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: Strikes from center ice Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/17) Edler scored from center ice in Saturday's win over Calgary.

    It was a long blast that dipped and fooled Brian Elliott, but it all counts the same. Edler had a productive fantasy night, also dishing out five hits and picking up two PIM. He only has three goals on the season, but Edler has been productive of late, racking up two goals and six points in his last seven games. He's not a great fantasy fantasy option in most leagues, but Edler is hot and plays on the power play, so he could be worth looking at in deeper formats while the Canucks remain in the playoff picture.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Struggling to produce offense of late

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/17) Edler has managed just one assist in his last nine games.

    It's been a rough year offensively for Edler, who has just one goal and nine points in 38 games on the season. He continues to be relied on heavily by Vancouver, as exemplified by the 27:20 of ice time he logged in Saturday's loss to the Wild. He no longer quaterbacks the top power-play unit and is no longer the 40-point-getter he once was. The 30-year-old remains a decent blueliner, but his minus-10 rating and lack of offense makes him avoidable in fantasy. Edler could catch fire at some point, but the Canucks appear to be trending downwards and Edler's best years are behind him, so it's probably smart to look elsewhere.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Returns to lineup Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/16) Edler (finger) is active and will play in Wednesday's game against the Kings, Kevin Woodley of USA Today reports.

    Edler missed the last 13 games after undergoing surgery for a fractured finger but is now set to return to the Canucks' back end. The 30-year-old blueliner was averaging 23:42 of ice time prior to going down but tallied just three points over 21 games during that span. Because he appears to no longer be producing the 30-plus point campaigns that he did earlier in his career, fantasy owners would be wise to look elsewhere when looking for defensive depth.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Skates with team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/27/16) Edler (finger) joined the team for practice Tuesday, but remains without a set timeline to suit up.

    Edler was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks originally, which means his return to action could still be a week or two away. Additionally, the defenseman remains on injured reserve meaning the Canucks would need to make a corresponding roster move in order to activate him. Vancouver should provide an update once the 30-year-old is cleared to return.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Will undergo surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/28/16) Edler (finger) will miss 4-to-6 weeks after undergoing surgery Monday on a fractured finger.

    Edler was just one of many Canucks struggling to produce this season with a lone goal and two assists to go with his minus-8 rating. Despite his absence from the scoresheet, the defenseman continued to eat up big minutes -- averaging 23:42 of ice time per night -- prior to getting hurt. Alex Biega will be called up from a conditioning assignment at AHL Utica.

  • April 12, 2015: Canucks' Edler Nets Three Points In Win
    Edler potted the overtime-winning goal and added two assists Saturday against Edmonton.Edler is on fire and enters the playoffs having recorded back-to-back three-point games. He finishes the regular season on a four-game point streak, giving him eight goals and 31 points in 74 games on the season. Considering that he's on fire right now and has historically been a decent playoff performer, Edler wouldn't be a bad pick in a playoff pool, especially if you're counting on the Canucks getting past the Flames.
