  • Edler scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Maple Leafs. It was the game-winner. Edler has five points (one goals, four assists) in his last seven games. His fantasy value seemed like it was in the past, but there may be something left in the tank. Check your wire.

  • Edler had a strong performance Tuesday evening against the Flyers, collecting an assist, blocking four shots and posting a plus-2 rating in 21:59 of ice time. It was the first point since returning from injury for Edler, who has been logging steady minutes once again. He quarterbacks the first power-play unit, but expectations are fairly low after back-to-back 20-point seasons. The offensive side of his game has taken a backseat, but Edler is capable of putting up decent numbers given his significant role. His whopping minutes should lead to some point production, so keep an eye on him in deeper formats.

  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: Returning Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Edler (lower body) will suit up for Thursday's game against Anaheim. Edler has faced an extended absence due to the injury, missing each of the last 12 games. However, with Chris Tanev (upper body) being ruled out for the next three contests, Edler has been pushed into game action. Formerly a dynamo on the blue line -- including an 11-goal, 49-point season in 2011-12 -- Edler doesn't bring nearly as much offensive production now that he's entered his 30s, but still averages top-pairing minutes and receives consistent time on the man advantage.

  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: Skating with team
    By RotoWire Staff

    Edler (lower body) is skating with his teammates as he continues his injury rehab. When Edler went on injured reserve Oct. 16, he was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. The fact that he is skating is a good sign, but there's still a ways to go for the Swedish blueliner.

  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: Designated for IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Edler (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site. With Edler set to miss 4-to-6 weeks, it should come as no surprise to find him on IR. The Canucks will likely use the extra roster spot for a replacement for Loui Eriksson (knee) -- who is expected to miss approximately 10 days. Newly acquired Derrick Pouliot figures to slot into the third pairing while the veteran Edler is sidelined.
