  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Gathers helper

    Blueger posted an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Kraken.

    Blueger has just two assists over his last 13 games after beginning 2024 with eight helpers in 10 outings. The 29-year-old remains locked in as the third-line center, though he's clearly missing Dakota Joshua (upper body). Blueger is up to 23 points, 68 shots on net, 61 hits, 32 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a plus-10 rating through 45 appearances this season.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Earns assist

    Blueger managed an assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    Blueger snapped a seven-game point drought with his helper on a Dakota Joshua goal in the third period. While he hasn't stood out like his linemates Joshua and Conor Garland, Blueger's been steady as the Canucks' third-line center. He's up to 22 points, 56 shots on net, 45 hits, 29 blocked shots and a plus-12 rating over 40 appearances this season, putting him on track for a career year.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Strong start to 2024

    Blueger stretched his point streak to three games with an assist in Monday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.

    Blueger has been solid offensively despite a middle-six role that emphasizes his penalty-killing responsibilities. He's added five goals, 11 assists and a plus-6 rating, which puts him at a career-best pace through 26 games. As it pertains to Vancouver's forwards, looking at marquee names like Elias Pettersson, J.T. Miller and Brock Boeser is low-hanging fruit, whereas Blueger is a more cost-effective option who still returns a fair amount of value.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Scores to extend streak

    Blueger tallied a goal on his only shot in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Flyers.

    Blueger got Vancouver on the board 25 seconds into the third period, one-timing a feed from Dakota Joshua past Samuel Ersson to cut the deficit to 3-1. The goal extended Blueger's improbable scoring streak to seven games -- he has three goals and six assists in that span. The 29-year-old center is up to five goals and 13 points through 22 games in a third-line role with the Canucks.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Riding six-game point streak

    Blueger managed two assists, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Sharks.

    Blueger extended his point streak to six games, during which he has two goals and six helpers. The 29-year-old helped out on tallies by Nils Aman and Dakota Joshua. Blueger seems to have found a home on the Canucks' third line, and he's up to 12 points, 28 shots on net, 15 hits, 14 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating over 21 appearances. Blueger will need to continue to play well -- Pius Suter or Aman could be options to take his third-line role if he slumps.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Adds helper in win

    Blueger notched an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Panthers.

    Blueger remained on the third line Thursday even with the return of Pius Suter (lower body). Those two forwards are likely to become interchangeable between the third and fourth lines. Blueger has done well with three points over his last five contests. For the season, he has five points, 22 shots on net, 14 hits, 10 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating over 16 appearances.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Lights lamp Thursday

    Blueger scored a goal in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Wild.

    Blueger gave the Canucks some breathing room with a strong individual play set up by Conor Garland that led to the team's second goal. The 29-year-old Blueger has four points over his last nine contests while playing in a bottom-six role. He's solid defensively and not a pushover in the offensive zone, so he should continue to play a key depth role. He's at four points, 21 shots on net, 10 hits, nine blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 13 outings this season.

Blueger has three points, 20 shots on net, 10 hits and a minus-1 rating over 12 appearances in a bottom-six role this season.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Steals and scores in win

    Blueger scored a shorthanded goal on two shots, added five PIM and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    The Kraken were loose with the puck in the neutral zone, and Blueger picked off a pass before converting on a breakaway for the Canucks' first goal. It was the 29-year-old's first tally for his new team. Blueger's two points this season have come over the last three games, and he's added 17 shots on net, seven hits, seven PIM and a plus-1 rating through seven contests overall.

    Blueger logged a shorthanded assist and seven shots on goal in Monday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.

The 29-year-old defensive forward has added 13 shots on net, six hits and a minus-1 rating while logging an average of 14:55 of ice time per contest in a bottom-six role.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Making Canucks debut Sunday

    Blueger (ankle) will play Sunday against the Canadiens, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

    Blueger will make his debut with Vancouver after he missed the first month of the season with a nagging ankle injury. The 29-year-old Blueger signed a one-year deal with the Canucks in the offseason after tallying four goals and 16 points across 63 games between Vegas and Pittsburgh last year. Blueger figures to slot into a bottom-six role.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Won't play against Leafs

    Blueger (lower body) won't play Saturday against Toronto, according to Thomas Drance of The Athletic.

    Blueger might be an option to make his Vancouver debut Sunday against Montreal. He notched four goals, 16 points 85 shots on goal, 47 blocked shots and 71 hits in 63 games between Pittsburgh and Vegas last season.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Inches closer to return

    Blueger (ankle) took part in Wednesday's practice, but he's not expected to play Thursday versus Ottawa, per Jeff Paterson of The Hockey News.

    Blueger, who hasn't played yet in 2023-24, was participating in his first full practice Wednesday. Coach Rick Tocchet previously stated that Blueger would need to get into a couple of practices before returning, which makes it more likely that Blueger will return for Saturday's contest versus Toronto or Sunday against Montreal. The 29-year-old had four goals and 16 points in 63 outings last year.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Still not skating

    Blueger (bruise), who is considered week-to-week, still has yet to resume skating, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports Friday.

    At this point, Blueger should be expected to miss at least the club's upcoming back-to-back against the Blues and Rangers on Friday and Saturday, respectively. After signing with the Canucks in the offseason, the veteran center has yet to get on the ice for his new team -- he figures to slot into a bottom-six role once given the green light to play.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Considered week-to-week

    Blueger (bruise) is regarded as week-to-week, Canucks coach Rick Tocchet told Jeff Paterson of The Hockey News on Friday.

    That's a significant change to Blueger's outlook after he was seen as a game-time decision Wednesday due to the injury. The 29-year-old had four goals and 16 points in 63 contests in 2022-23 between Pittsburgh and Vegas.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Sitting out Wednesday

    Blueger (bruise) won't play in Wednesday's season opener versus the Oilers, Jeff Paterson of The Hockey News reports.

    Blueger was considered a game-time decision, so this doesn't seem like it will be a long-term issue. The Canucks don't have the cap space to recall reinforcements, so they'll dress 17 skaters for their Opening Night game.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Game-time decision versus Oilers

    Blueger (bruise) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with Edmonton, per Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650.

    If Blueger can't play, the Canucks would likely have to make an emergency recall right before puck drop after having previously sent Vasily Podkolzin to the minors, leaving the team without a spare forward on its 23-man roster. Splitting his time between Pittsburgh and Vegas last season, the 29-year-old Blueger registered four goals, 12 assists and 85 shots in 63 contests. While Blueger should be capable of getting back over the 20-point threshold this season, he has never managed 30 points in his career.

  • Canucks' Teddy Blueger: Participates in practice

    Blueger (bruise) was limited in practice Sunday, Jeff Paterson of The Hockey News reports.

    Blueger wanted to finish practice but "was kicked off the ice" by coach Rick Tocchet. It sounds like Blueger's injury is minor and he should be available for Wednesday's season opener against Edmonton. An update on his status should be available before then.
