Top Micheal Ferland News

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Moves to LTIR

    Ferland (head) was placed on long-term injured reserve Monday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

    Ferland's NHL career is likely over and this is just a paper move for Vancouver to work with its cap space. The 29-year-old forward hasn't appeared in a game since the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Essentially retired

    When asked about his future, Ferland (head) stated "I am feeling better, I wish I could come back, but I know where I'm at now health-wise. No I don't think I'll play professionally ever again. Definitely no contact ever again, I need to take care of myself," Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Ferland suffered multiple concussions in 2019-20 before missing the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign, all but ending his professional playing career. The 2010 fifth-round pick will almost certainly remain on long-term injured reserve for the final two years of his contract rather than officially retiring, but he's played his last NHL shift. Ferland will end his career having racked up 60 goals, 134 points and 200 PIM in 335 games split between the Flames, Hurricanes and Canucks.

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Lands on LTIR

    The Canucks have placed Ferland (head) on long-term injured reserve, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

    Ferland hasn't played since he suffered yet another head injury during last season's playoffs and at this point he's looking iffy at best to suit up at all in 2020-21. Vancouver should release another update on the 28-year-old winger if and when he's cleared to resume skating.

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Won't be ready for camp

    Ferland (head) will not be with the team for the start of training camp, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Ferland continues to deal with the effects of a concussion suffered back in October and appears no closer to getting back on the ice. At this point, the 28-year-old winger should be considered a near-lock for long-term injured reserve barring a drastic improvement in his recovery prior to Opening Night against Edmonton on Jan. 13.

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Not cleared to play yet

    Ferland (head) hasn't returned to 100 percent, as general manager Jim Benning told reporters, "If the season was to start right now, Micheal Ferland wouldn't be starting," Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Since Nov. 1, 2019, Ferland has appeared in just four games for Vancouver, a stretch of 70 games on the shelf including the postseason. At this point, the winger could be headed for long-term injured reserve to start the season. Even if healthy for Opening Night, fantasy players should probably stay away from Ferland until he proves he can be the same 40-point producer he was from 2017-19.

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Unavailable Wednesday

    Ferland (undisclosed) remains unfit to play in Wednesday's Game 1 versus the Blues, per coach Travis Green.

    Ferland missed the entire play-in series with Minnesota after leaving Edmonton to work on his recovery at home. It's been an injury-riddled campaign for the winger, as he has played in just four of the Canucks' last 61 contests. When in the lineup, the 27-year-old managed five points, 15 shots and 40 hits in 14 games this year.

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Departing Edmonton bubble

    Ferland (undisclosed) will leave the NHL bubble in Edmonton for reasons related to his injury, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Though a specific injury hasn't been designated for Ferland, he has a history of concussions and sustained some glancing contact to his head prior to leaving Tuesday's Game 2 against Minnesota after taking only four shifts. The NHL requires players to self-quarantine for a minimum of four days upon returning to the bubble, which rules Ferland out for the entirety of the play-in series against the Wild.

  • Canucks' Micheal Ferland: Leaves after first period

    Ferland (undisclosed) did not play after the first period of Tuesday's Game 2 versus the Wild, Blake Price of TSN reports.

    It's unclear how Ferland got injured. He skated just 2:36 over four shifts in the contest. The winger battled with concussion-like symptoms for much of the 2019-20 regular season. Hopefully for Ferland, he's not battling another head injury. His status for Thursday's Game 3 is to be determined.
