Edler posted an assist, four hits, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Monday's 7-1 win over the Senators. Edler had the lone helper on the first of Brandon Sutter's three goals in the contest. Beyond that, Edler had a solid all-around game through his physical play. The Swede has two assists, 15 shots on goal, 15 hits and 10 blocks through seven outings. He's topped 30 points in each of the last three seasons despite missing time to injuries each year. However, he entered Monday with 18:27 per game this season compared to 22:37 last year, and he's no longer featured on either power-play unit, so he may be in line for a quieter campaign.
Edler (upper body) will play in Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports. Edler's absence lasted just one game, as he'll return to the lineup for a third straight matchup against the Habs. Through five games this year, the 34-year-old has posted an assist, nine shots on net, seven hits and four blocked shots.
Edler (upper body) is trending toward not playing in Saturday's game versus the Canadiens, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 reports. Edler exited Wednesday's contest with the injury and didn't suit up Thursday. With Edler out, Olli Juolevi entered the lineup in a top-four role on the blue line. Juolevi will likely reprise that role if Edler is ruled out ahead of Saturday's game.
Edler (upper body) isn't on the ice for warmups, indicating he won't play in Thursday's game against Montreal, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Edler suffered the injury in Wednesday's game, and his timetable for a return remains unclear. Along with Edler, Travis Hamonic (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, so the defensive core will be down two players. Look for Brogan Rafferty, Jalen Chatfield and Olli Juolevi to all enter the lineup for Thursday's game.
Edler suffered an upper-body injury and won't return to Wednesday's game against the Canadiens. Edler logged just 6:47 of ice time before departing. The 34-year-old handles a significant role on the Canucks' blue line, playing more than 20 minutes on a consistent basis. The Canucks may not provide an update Wednesday, so his status is uncertain for Thursday's rematch against the Canadiens.
