  • Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Nabs assist in victory
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sutter picked up a helper in Tuesday's win over the Flames. It was just the second assist in the last eight games for Sutter, who isn't relied on as a significant offensive contributor. The fourth-line center sees plenty of ice time at even-strength and on the penalty kill, but his lack of power-play time makes him an unappealing fantasy option. Sutter can chip in with the occasional tally, but they won't come often enough for him to be trusted in anything but the deepest of leagues.

  • Sutter (illness) confirmed he will play in Tuesday night's game in Ottawa, Jeff Patterson of TSN 1040 reports. Sutter's illness was apparently nothing serious and he will return to the Canucks' ranks having missed only one practice and no game action. The 28-year-old netted a goal Opening Night against Edmonton, but has been relatively quiet since then, notching six shots on goal total while averaging 16:22 of ice time.

  • Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Out with illness

    Sutter missed practice Monday due to illness. Considering Loui Eriksson (knee) didn't travel with the team -- combined with Sutter being under the weather -- it shouldn't come as a shock the club is going to promote a player from the minors. The odds-on favorites are likely Reid Boucher or Nikolay Goldobin, although Michael Chaput may be better suited to replace Sutter down the middle if the 28-year-old is unable to play.

  • Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Stands out in season opener
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sutter was excellent in the season opener Saturday against Edmonton, netting his first goal of the year. Sutter was very much put in a defensive role against the Oilers, as he centered the fourth line, logged 2:33 of shorthanded time and won 64 percent of his faceoffs. His transition to a bottom-six forward hurts his fantasy value, but he'll always have some offensive upside that makes him worth owning in deeper formats.

  • Sutter centered the fourth line at practice Wednesday morning, according to TSN 1040's Jeff Patterson. Sutter was in a fourth-line shutdown role against superstar forward Connor McDavid in Vancouver's preseason finale Saturday and that looks like where things may be headed this season. Coach Travis Green has matched Sutter up against top lines throughout training camp and his new defensive role could take the pressure off Bo Horvat to function in that capacity. Sutter has a fantastic shot and netted 17 goals last season, but his fantasy value could take a hit this year. The potential of skating alongside players such as Markus Granlund, Brock Boeser, Sam Gagner and Jake Virtanen is promising, but if he's expected to shut down opposing teams' top players, his offensive numbers will likely take a hit.
