  • Gudbranson (wrist) didn't sustain an injury during Thursday's 6-2 win over the Capitals, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Gudbranson left Thursday's contest late in the third period with an apparent wrist injury, but the Canucks were evidently just being overly cautious with the 25-year-old blueliner. He'll hope to notch his first point of the season Monday against the Stars.

  • Gudbranson exited Thursday's 6-2 win over the Capitals late in the third period with an apparent wrist injury, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. The severity of Gudbranson's ailment remains unclear, but it's certainly a situation worth monitoring ahead of Monday's game against the Stars. The towering 6-foot-5 defender has gone scoreless in eight games this season.

  • Gudbranson has served his one-game suspension and is eligible to play in Sunday night's road game against the Red Wings. The blueliner heard from the NHL Department of Player Safety after a game against the Bruins in which he boarded Frank Vatrano. He picked up a whopping 20 PIM in that contest, but that's a category that seems to be fleeting in the fantasy realm with the NHL cutting down on the number of enforcers employed by the league.

  • Canucks' Erik Gudbranson: Receives one-game ban
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gudbranson will miss Friday's matchup with Buffalo as he serves a one-game suspension for boarding, per the NHL Department of Player Safety. Gudbranson has never been hit with a fine or a suspension by the league, which likely eased the severity of the penalty -- combined with Frank Vatrano appearing to have avoided an injury on the play. With the 25-year-old ineligible to play, Alex Biega will make his season debut for the Canucks.

  • Gudbranson will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday for boarding Boston's Frank Vatrano during Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins. The 25-year-old blueliner was handed a 10 minute misconduct and a five-minute major penalty for his hit on Vatrano, so the fact that the NHL is considering further discipline shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The NHL's decision should be announced following Gudbranson's hearing Friday.
