Canucks' Josh Leivo: Still not skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo (kneecap) has joined his teammates in Vancouver, but he has yet to resume skating, freelance Canucks beat writer Irfaan Gaffar reports.

Leivo hasn't skated since suffering a fractured kneecap in late December, which doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for the playoffs, which are scheduled to get underway Aug. 1. The 27-year-old winger notched seven goals and 19 points in 36 games prior to the NHL halting play in March.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Could be sidelined for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo (kneecap) continues to work on his rehab but could be out of action until 2020-21, per Farhan Lalji of TSN.

Leivo was originally expected to miss the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign prior to the league going on hiatus. With the NHL shut down, there was some speculation he could see the ice in the postseason; however, it appears that the winger won't be ready any time soon.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Recovery not progressing well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo's rehab from his broken kneecap has not gone as expected and he may still not be ready when the playoffs begin, Iain MacIntyre of reports.

Leivo has been sidelined since mid-December with his injury and evidently hasn't made a ton of progress in his recovery despite having over five months to rehab. The Canucks likely won't be playing meaningful games for at least two more months, but at this point it's looking like Leivo might not be ready to participate in his team's pre-postseason training camp, which should begin sometime in July.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Continuing rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo (kneecap) is working on his recovery but hasn't been cleared for action yet, according to general manager Jim Benning.

Leivo was originally ruled out for the rest of the 2020-21 campaign after suffering his kneecap injury. However, with the league going on hiatus, there is a chance he could be cleared to play once playrestarts. Despite playing in just 36 contests this year, the Ontario native needed just one more point to reach the 20-point mark for the second time in his young career.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Done for regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo (kneecap) won't return for the regular season, though he could be back during the playoffs.

Leivo's prolonged absence no doubt factored into the team's decision to trade for Tyler Toffoli. Prior to getting hurt, the 26-year-old Leivo racked up five goals and three helpers in his previous 11 contests. With Brock Boeser (ribs) also slated to miss significant time, Loui Eriksson figures to continue filling a top-six role.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Faces 2-to-3 month absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo has a fractured kneecap and will miss two to three months, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

Leivo has spent a good chunk of the season in a top-six role, and his absence should allow Jake Virtanen and Loui Eriksson more opportunities with the scoring lines. The 26-year-old Leivo has accrued 19 points through 36 games, and he'll aim to return in late February.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo (leg) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

Leivo sustained the apparent leg injury during Thursday's matchup with Vegas. Now that he's been placed on IR, he'll miss the Canucks' next two games at a minimum . Vancouver recalled Zack MacEwen from AHL Utica on Friday to provide some depth up front for Saturday's game against the Penguins.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Suffers apparent leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo sustained an apparent leg injury in Thursday's matchup with Vegas. After the game, coach Travis Green didn't have a specific update but told reporters, "I don't think it's going to be great though," Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

It certainly sounds like the Canucks are expecting Leivo to miss some time. The winger registered an assist in each of his previous two contests but is currently bogged down in a five-game goal drought. With Leivo's availability for Saturday's matchup with Pittsburgh in doubt, the club recalled Zack MacEwen from the minors.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Registers power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo produced a power-play helper in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.

Leivo set up Tanner Pearson for the 2-0 goal at 7:08 of the first period. Leivo has continued to impress in a depth-scoring role for the Canucks, with 19 points (including five on the power play) in 36 games. At this pace, he could produce a 40-point campaign, although a lack of non-scoring stats (17 hits, eight blocked shots) will limit his fantasy value.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Snaps mini-slump with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo posted a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.

Leivo had gone without a point in three games prior to setting up Adam Gaudette's lone goal Tuesday. Leivo is in line for a career year -- he has 18 points and 69 shots through 35 contests this season. His personal best is 24 points in 76 outings between the Canucks and the Maple Leafs, but he should have no trouble setting a new standard by the end of 2019-20.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Scores against former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo tallied a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and went minus-3 in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Leivo's goal cut the deficit to 2-1 at 11:14 of the third period, but it was a mixed bag for the winger overall. He's scored five times in his last five games, so Leivo's running exceptionally hot lately. He's got 17 points and 65 shots on goal in 31 contests this season -- the 26-year-old is on track for a career year.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Lights lamp twice in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo scored two goals in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sabres.

He opened the scoring in the first period, then gave the Canucks a 3-2 lead late in the second period. Leivo is enjoying his current top-six assignment -- the 26-year-old has only six goals and 16 points on the year, but he has four goals and five points in the last five contests.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Tallies in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

Leivo has enjoyed the home-and-home series against the Oilers, scoring a goal in each of the two games. He's up to four tallies and 14 points in 28 contests this season. His scoring rate could make the 26-year-old of interest to fantasy owners in deeper formats, especially since he's recorded points in three straight games.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Finds twine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo netted a goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Pockets assist with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo produced a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

Leivo had the primary helper on the first of two Adam Gaudette scores in the contest. Saturday's performance puts Leivo at 10 points and 43 shots through 21 games. His production is solid on offense, but a lack of other stats -- just 11 hits, four PIM and four blocked shots -- probably isn't enough for fantasy owners.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: Garners assist on game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo generated an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

Leivo served up Brock Boeser, who in turn passed to Elias Pettersson for the eventual game-winning tally. Leivo has been solid with nine points and 40 shots through 19 games. He's on pace to best his career-high mark of 24 points in 76 contests between the Canucks and Maple Leafs last year.

Canucks' Josh Leivo: One of each Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo produced a goal and an assist with four shots on goal in Monday's 7-2 win over the Panthers.

Leivo had a hand in the opening goal, with the secondary helper on Brandon Sutter's strike, and then the winger closed out the five-goal frame as well. Leivo has a decent six points through 11 games while serving a middle-six role in an explosive Canucks offense.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo had an assist, two shots and scored the winning goal during Vancouver's 4-3 shootout win over St. Louis on Thursday.

Leivo has cracked the scoresheet in three of Vancouver's last four games, but also scored the winning goal with a sensational piece of skill during the shootout round. He will aim to continue that solid run Saturday against New Jersey.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leivo's goal was the Canucks' seventh of the game, helping to put things well out of reach in the third period. The tally is the winger's first point of the season, and he's contributed six shots on goal as well. Leivo recorded 24 points in 76 contests between the Canucks and Maple Leafs last season, primarily used as a middle-six player.
