  • Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Hangs up the skates

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/30/17) Dorsett (neck) has decided to officially end his NHL career due to health risks incurred from playing again.

    Dorsett returned to Vancouver on Tuesday to undergo evaluation from the team's medical staff, which must have revealed something involving his neck that would involve further risks if he continued to play. The 30-year-old finishes his career having amassed 127 points (51 goals, 76 assists) and a whopping 1,314 penalty minutes over 515 contests.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Returns to Vancouver for evaluation

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/21/17) Dorsett (neck) returned to Vancouver on Tuesday to be evaluated by the Canucks' medical staff.

    Dorsett's rehab following the cervical fusion procedure he underwent last December progressed as expected, which resulted in the veteran winger being cleared to play in September. However, he's recently dealt with neck and back stiffness, so the Canucks determined it was best for him to return to Vancouver and undergo further evaluation for precautionary reasons Tuesday. Dorsett can be considered out indefinitely until Vancouver releases another statement regarding his status.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: GM appeals instigator ruling

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/17) Canucks GM Jim Benning is appealing Dorsett's instigator penalty from Thursday night's loss to the Ducks, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports. This is noteworthy because if the appeal is denied, the winger would receive a two-game suspension if he commits a third instigator infraction.

    Dorsett's already been assessed two instigator penalties and the NHL's rule book states that a third would cost him two games. While the Canadian brute is generally known more for his physical play than his effort in the attacking zone, we'll point out that Dorsett has seven goals in 16 games thanks to a 30.4 shooting percentage -- that's obviously not sustainable. Still, he's also bagged two shorthanded goals this season and the Canucks losing him for any amount of time would really hurt the team and fantasy owners alike in some of the ancillary categories.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Nets seventh goal in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/8/17) Dorsett tallied his seventh goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Flames.

    After a red-hot stretch at the start of the season, Dorsett had gone quiet over the last four games. The 30-year-old is proving to be quite the story with nine points through his first 15 games. He's playing great for a fourth-liner, but keep in mind he's just that. His 46 PIM and depth scoring make him a quality fantasy play in deeper formats.

    Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Stays hot against Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/23/17) Dorsett scored his team-leading fifth goal of the season in Sunday's win over Detroit.

    We keep telling you his goal scoring will slow down and he keeps proving us wrong, so maybe it's time to get on board with the Dorsett hype. There's no denying what he's doing is impressive, but realistically there's no way he keeps it going. The fourth-liner is usually known for his PIM contributions and his previous career high in goals is 12. The fact he's outscoring Connor McDavid this season is just absurd, but be smart about it and know this won't last. He can be be of value in deeper formats, but take advantage and sell high if there's someone looking to acquire him for a slumping top-six forward.
