News
Miller will defend the home net from the Sharks as Saturday's starter.

We doubt there's going to be a Black Friday-esque rush to get Miller into fantasy lineups since the Cancuks have gone 3-7-0 in the past 10 games, plus the word out of Vancouver is that five of the team's regulars may be dealing with mumps. Evidently, the veteran backstop isn't at risk for catching the infectious condition, but he carries an underwhelming 2.61 GAA and .917 save percentage into this next contest and that wouldn't inspire confidence even under ordinary circumstances. It'll be worth avoiding this situation altogether.

News
Hansen told reporters that he has formulated a list of eight teams that he'd be willing to play for if traded, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Naturally, seven of those teams are in playoff contention, whereas there's an (undisclosed) city in particular that interests him. Hansen has one year remaining on his $10 million contract before he'd become an unrestricted free agent, with a modified no-trade clause embedded into that deal he signed with Vancouver ahead of the 2014-15 campaign. With the Canucks likely to miss the playoffs, Hansen could be on his way out by next Wednesday's trade deadline. A knee injury has limited him to 27 games this season, though he's managed 13 points despite averaging a mere 16:20 of rink-run per contest.

News
Sbisa (illness) left Saturday's game against the Sharks due to an illness, Farhan Lalji of TSN.ca reports.

The good news for Sbisa is that doctors said the illness is not connected to mumps and the veteran has totally different symptoms. Mumps have run rampant through the Canucks locker room this week, sacking a few players in the process.

News
Chaput will miss Saturday's game against the Sharks after showing symptoms of mumps, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 reports.

Chaput is one of four Canucks projected to miss Saturday's contest after the players contracted the virus during their bye week. It's unclear how long the illness will keep him sidelined, but Chaput doesn't contribute a whole lot offensively anyway -- he has just two points since Jan. 7.

News
Tanev (illness) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Tanev was unable to practice Friday after showing mumps symptoms. The disease has spread through the Canucks, which is liable to really leave them shorthanded. There isn't a clear recovery time for an illness such as this, so you'll have to keep an eye on the Canucks' situation to see when all these mumps-affected players can return.

News
Granlund has been diagnosed with mumps and won't play Saturday against the Sharks, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 reports.

Five different Canucks players have been diagnosed with mumps, and at this point it isn't clear how long Granlund or any of the other ailing skaters will be sidelined due to the illness. However, Granlund's owners shouldn't have too much trouble finding a suitable replacement for the 23-year-old pivot's production, as he's only tallied 26 points (15 goals, 11 assists) in 60 games this season.

News
Tryamkin has been diagnosed with mumps and won't play Saturday against the Sharks, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 reports.

Tryamkin is just one of five Canucks who has displayed symptoms of the mumps virus, and at this point it isn't clear how long he'll be sidelined due to the illness. The towering Russian defender's absence will test Vancouver's depth at defense, but won't mean much to fantasy owners, as his meager offensive contributions -- seven points in 50 games this campaign -- keeps him from being a desirable option in most formats.

News
Stecher (illness) has been placed on injured reserve, meaning he will miss Saturday's game against the Sharks, the NHL's official media site reports.

Stecher is one of several Canucks who has come down with the mumps, leaving Vancouver shorthanded and scrambling. There is no clear timetable for Stecher's return, so be sure to monitor his situation to find out when he's able to recover from the mumps.
