  • Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Pots first goal of season in losing cause

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/15/17) Dorsett scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Flames.

    Dorsett skates on the fourth line and has never scored more than 12 goals in an NHL season, but he's a very reliable source of PIM and hits. While it's good to see the 30-year-old back in action after undergoing season-ending neck surgery last December, he won't offer much fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Cleared from injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/12/17) Dorsett (neck) was fully cleared to return to action on Tuesday.

    After undergoing season-ending neck surgery last December, Dorsett appears to be fully recovered and ready to reclaim his regular roster spot with the Canucks. That said, the veteran winger has never exceeded 25 points in any of his 10 NHL seasons, so he can be safely ignored in the majority of fantasy formats, aside from those that incorporate hits.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Focusing on return in fall

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/17) Dorsett (neck) said Tuesday that he will be healthy and ready to return at the start of next season.

    "I only know how to play one way and that's hard. I won't be changing how I play," Dorsett said, adding, "My first shift, I'm going to try and run someone over. You know how I play. I only have one gear." That tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the veteran enforcer -- he's not likely to put up a lot of points, but he'll play tough and make things easier for the scorers around him.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Done for the season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/22/16) Dorsett spoke to the media for the first time since sustaining his neck injury and said he is focused on being fully healthy for the start of next season, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

    So ends an injury-plagued season for Dorsett. The 30-year-old has mainly played the role of an enforcer for much of his career, which would explain the four points, 33 penalty minutes, and 35 hits he accumulated this season while seeing only 9:56 of ice time on average. He'll look to get healthy and resume his position in the Canucks' bottom-six next fall.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: To undergo cervical fusion surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/16) Dorsett (neck) is scheduled to undergo cervical fusion surgery to repair disc degeneration in his neck.

    Dorsett is expected to make a full recovery from the procedure, but a firm timetable remains unclear heading into the procedure. The team should provide further details on a potential timeline after the procedure, but it doesn't appear as though he will be back on the ice anytime soon. The veteran winger's absence likely won't have a huge overall impact in the fantasy realm, as he's notched just four points through 14 games with the Canucks this season.
