Virtanen picked up an assist, a team-leading six shots and two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks. It was a spirited effort from Virtanen, who couldn't solve Coyotes goalie Darcy Kuemper on his own, but set up Tanner Pearson for a goal at 6:16 of the third period. Virtanen has a career-high 36 points to go with 144 shots, 97 hits and 39 PIM in 66 games this season. His role can be inconsistent at times -- the Canucks have a deep forward group, which occasionally shuffles Virtanen to the bottom six despite his solid production.
Virtanen scored a power-play goal and tallied an assist during Tuesday's 4-3 win over Montreal. The assist was Virtanen's first helper since Jan. 27, but the forward has goals in back-to-back contests and is up to 35 points in 62 games this season. Slightly concerning was Virtanen's ice time, as the Canucks' winger played only 12:01 in Tuesday's win.

Virtanen potted a power-play goal on two shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks. Virtanen's tally at 7:00 of the third period gave the Canucks their first lead of the game.
