Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Sent down before deadline
Hoglander was reassigned to AHL Abbotsford on Sunday before the roster freeze, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Not playing Monday
Hoglander is not in Monday's lineup against St. Louis, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Unless he picked up a late injury, it seems like Hoglander is a healthy scratch with Brock Boeser (illness) back in the lineup. The 21-year-old has nine points in 25 games this season and will miss his first game since Nov. 21.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Dishes pair of assists
Hoglander produced two assists, two shots on goal, two PIM and three hits in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Flames.
Hoglander was initially slated to be a healthy scratch, but Brock Boeser (illness) was ultimately unable to play. Hoglander was a like-for-like swap on the third line and sparked that group, helping out on goals by Conor Garland and Sheldon Dries in the contest. Over the last nine games, Hoglander has picked up six points. He's at three goals, six helpers, 28 shots, 20 hits, six PIM and a minus-4 rating in 24 outings overall, though his steady play on offense of late should help him stick in the lineup more often than not....

Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Nets goal in overtime win
Hoglander scored a goal in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.
Hoglander tallied in the second period, but he was once again more of a peripheral contributor for the Canucks. Despite his top-line assignment, he saw a team-low 11:00 of ice time in the high-scoring contest. The 21-year-old winger is up to three goals, seven points, 25 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 22 outings, but such a limited role will continue to lower his scoring potential....

Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Garners helper Monday
Hoglander posted an assist in Monday's 7-6 overtime win over the Canadiens.
Hoglander set up Bo Horvat's 20th goal of the season, which came at 4:02 of the third period. Offense has been a bit spotty for Hoglander lately -- he's picked up a goal and two assists in seven games since he was a healthy scratch Nov. 21. Overall, the 21-year-old winger has two goals, four helpers, 24 shots on net, 17 hits and a minus-4 rating through 21 outings.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Pots lone goal in loss
Hoglander scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Capitals.
Hoglander buried a feed from J.T. Miller at 13:55 of the first period. That was it for the Canucks' offense as they failed to solve Darcy Kuemper a second time. Hoglander has had some ups and downs lately, but he has a goal and an assist in his last four games. The 21-year-old is at two tallies, three helpers, 19 shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-4 rating in 18 appearances. While he's seeing even-strength minutes on the first line, he isn't a factor on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Supplies helper in win
Hoglander recorded an assist and three hits in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Golden Knights.
Hoglander has been on the top line at even strength lately, but his lack of power-play time has limited his offense. He snapped a five-game point drought with his helper Saturday. The 21-year-old winger is up to one goal, three assists, 17 shots on net, 15 hits and a minus-4 rating in 16 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Bounces back from healthy scratch
Hoglander notched an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Predators.
Hoglander was scratched for Thursday's game versus the Ducks, but he was back on the top line at even strength Saturday. He responded well, setting up J.T. Miller's first-period tally. The assist was Hoglander's second in nine outings this season, and the 21-year-old winger has added 12 shots on net, nine hits and a minus-3 rating. His ice time remains low, so don't let his spot in the lineup fool you -- he'll need a significant bump in usage to bring fantasy value in redraft formats.... See More ... See Less

Hoglander was called up from the minors Sunday.
Hoglander was temporarily moved to AHL Abbotsford on Saturday so the Canucks could bring up defenseman Noah Juulsen to play against Buffalo. Juulsen was returned to the minors Sunday. Hoglander has one assist in four games this season.... See More ... See Less

Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Picks up assist
Hoglander grabbed an assist during Tuesday's loss to Columbus.
The helper marks Hoglander's first point of the campaign. He had 18 points in 60 games last season, which was a decline from his 27 in 56 games the year prior. In seeing ice time with Elias Pettersson, Hoglander is getting opportunities to contribute offensively.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Auditioning on line with Pettersson
Hoglander skated alongside Elias Pettersson and Andrei Kuzmenko during Tuesday's practice, according to the Vancouver Province.
Hoglander was also on the second power-play unit. Earlier in the preseason he was skating on a depth line with Nils Aman and Linus Karlsson, but injuries to Brock Boeser (hand) and Ilya Mikheyev (lower body) have created an opening for Hoglander. It helps that he's impressed early on, with Canucks coach Bruce Boudreau recently calling him "the best player on the ice so far." He was limited to 10 goals and 18 points in 60 games while averaging 13:05 minutes last season.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Participates at practice
Hoglander (groin) was on the ice for Thursday's practice session, Patrick Johnston of The Province reports.
Hoglander's presence on the ice was encouraging, though it wasn't all good news. The 21-year-old skated alongside Nils Aman and Linus Karlsson, two players who are extremely likely to end up in the AHL to begin the season. Hoglander suffered a sophomore slump in 2021-22 with just 18 points in 60 games a year after he logged 27 points in 56 contests, so he'll need a strong camp to reestablish himself in the Canucks' NHL plans....

Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Not returning this season
Hoglander underwent core muscle/groin surgery Friday and will not return this season.
Hoglander has missed the last 14 and will now miss the final seven games of the regular season. The team doesn't have a timeline for his recovery but he should be back in time for the 2022-23 training camp. The 21-year-old forward totaled 10 goals and 18 points through 60 games this season....

Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Probably done for the season
Per coach Bruce Boudreau, Hoglander (groin) is likely done for the year, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Hoglander has already missed the last nine games, and he clearly isn't close to being healthy enough to return. If he ends up missing the final 12 contests of the campaign, Hoglander will finish the season having picked up 18 points through 60 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Sidelined long term
Hoglander (groin) will continue to be sidelined long term for the Canucks, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.
There's a possibility the groin injury will end the winger's season. Hoglander's 18 points in 60 games this year leaves a lot of room for improvement going forward.... See More ... See Less

Hoglander (groin) will stay back in Vancouver during the club's upcoming four-game road trip, David Quadrelli of Sportsnet650 reports. Additionally, Hoglander has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
With Hoglander's expected absence to reach at least seven contests, his placement on injured reserve certainly shouldn't come as a surprise. In 60 games this year, the Swedish winger has garnered 10 goals and eight helpers, including three power-play points, and should be in line to reach the 20-point threshold if he can get back into the lineup soon....
