Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Opts out of playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi has opted out of the NHL's Return to Play, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Baertschi, who's repeatedly asked the Canucks for a trade, only appeared in six games with the big club this campaign, so he's clearly decided it's not worth risking his health to attend training camp for a tournament he likely wouldn't have received playing time in. If Vancouver isn't able to find a way to trade the overpaid, disgrunted winger to another club this offseason, it will likely have to once again settle for burying him in the minors in 2020-21.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Looking for NHL job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Baertschi's agent Andre Rufener, the winger is looking to play in the NHL next season rather than sign with a European club, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Baertschi has seen action in just six games for the Canucks this season back in mid-November, when he notched two power-play assists, seven shots and five hits while averaging 11:49 of ice time. The 26-year-old went unclaimed on waivers and has spent the rest of the year with AHL Utica, where he has tallied 46 points in 43 contests.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Subject to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks waived Baertschi on Sunday.

Baertschi was a healthy scratch often with the big club, and he has since been demoted to AHL Utica. General manager Jim Benning confirmed he was looking to trade Baertschi, according to Ed Willes of The Chronicle Herald, but with no suitors, Benning hopes another team will take Baertschi's $3.37 million AAV contract off the Canucks' books. The 27-year-old Baertschi posted 14 points over 26 NHL games last year.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Demoted to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vancouver assigned Baertschi to AHL Utica on Tuesday.

Baertschi has been a healthy scratch for three consecutive contests, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 27-year-old will return to a prominent role with Utica, where he's racked up eight points in seven games this campaign.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Helps out on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi notched a power-play assist, two hits and two PIM in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

Baertschi has two assists, six shots and five hits through five appearances. He's seeing third line minutes, and his production has been about what we'd expect given his role. Fantasy owners need not rush to the waiver wire for the 27-year-old.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: First point of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Baertschi set up Adam Gaudette for a power-play goal in the third period, helping the Canucks restore a one-goal advantage. It's the first point of the year for the Swiss winger, who has averaged 12:07 per game in three appearances since he was called up from AHL Utica.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Making season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi will suit up for the Canucks for Friday's game in Winnipeg.

Baertschi posted 10 points in seven games with AHL Utica, got the call up, and will make his season debut for the Canucks. Injuries limited the winger to just 26 appearances last year, but he's healthy now and looking to take advantage of the opportunity. He will start out on Bo Horvat's wing on the second line.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Summoned by big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks recalled Baertschi from AHL Utica on Friday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Michael Ferland is dealing with an upper-body injury, so Baertschi could make his season debut with the Canucks on Friday against Anaheim. The 27-year-old winger has notched two goals and 10 points in seven minor-league contests this season.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Drops to waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi was waived by the Canucks for the purpose of reassignment.

This move comes as a surprise since Baertschi looked to have a shot at the top six this year. However, he's struggled with injuries over the last two years and played just 26 games last season due to a concussion. Baertschi made use of the limited time, posting 14 points with seven on the power play. He'll start the season with AHL Utica if he clears waivers, but there's a decent chance he's claimed by a team looking to add middle-six depth with power-play upside at $3.37 million per year.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Finds twine in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi deposited his ninth goal of the campaign in Saturday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Stars.

It's his first goal in three contests since returning from a concussion. Baertschi has had a down year with 14 points in only 25 games, after posting no fewer than 28 points and 53 appearances in his three previous full seasons with the Canucks. The first-round pick from 2011 will likely return to a middle-six role next season, but at 26 years old, there's not expected to be much more development for the Swiss winger.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi will replace injured forward Jake Virtanen (lower body) against the Stars on Saturday, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

The Canucks rested Baertschi against the Kings on Thursday since he's only two games removed from his return following a concussion issue that cost him 23 straight contests. Baertsci has averaged 0.48 points per game over an eight-year career split between the Flames and Canucks, but he could have trouble planting himself in the top six for the four games that remain on Vancouver's schedule.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Won't be in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi will come out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Kings, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Baertschi has played just twice since returning from his concussion that cost him 23 contests. The winger only skated 12:05 worth of ice time in his most recent affair, and is sitting tonight due to being too tired. Don't be surprised if Baertschi sees limited time, if any, the rest of the way. His health is the main priority, and with the season almost over, he may want to turn his focus to 2019 training camp.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Goes under radar in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) skated 16:48 with a minus-3 rating in Sunday's 5-0 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Baertschi was unable to make an impact on a night where Sergei Bobrovsky impersonated a brick wall. He skated 1:07 more than his season average, so he should be go over the final few games of the year.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) will return to the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jackets, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

Baertschi last played Feb. 2, missing the last 23 games with the head injury. The 26-year-old has 13 points in 22 games in a campaign ruined by injuries. He may be eased back into action, so it's unclear how much ice time he'll see Sunday.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Still day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) remains day-to-day ahead of Saturday night's game against the Flames.

The Canucks reportedly will go with the same lineup that led to a 7-4 triumph over the lowly Senators on Wednesday. It took a while for the team to decide Baertschi wouldn't play in the next contest, meaning he could get an even closer look for possible activation against the Flames on Sunday.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Set to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) is in line to play versus Calgary on Saturday.

Baertschi figures to slot into a bottom-six role out of the gate after missing the last 22 games due to his concussion. Injuries have limited the 25-year-old to a mere 22 outings this season, which could see him miss the 20-point mark for the first time since 2014-15 when he was with Calgary.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Activated off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) has been activated from injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Baertschi was an extra at morning skate Wednesday, which suggests he won't suit up for the Evening's tilt against the Senators. However, it appears his return may not be far off, potentially as soon as Saturday against the Flames, assuming he's not a pregame addition to Wednesday's group.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Takes huge recovery step
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) has been cleared for contact, but he won't be in action against the Stars on Sunday.

This news follows a separate report from Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver, who mentioned that Baertschi made the trip to Dallas and participated in another morning skate. While the Swiss national will miss a 20th consecutive game Sunday, it sounds like he'll be considered for deployment in Monday's road match with the Blackhawks.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Continues to skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) accompanied the team to Dallas and was present for another morning skate Sunday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

The Canucks will embark on a back-to-back set of road games, with the action concluding in Chicago on Monday. While Baertschi remains on injured reserve, he appears to be trending in the right direction for a possible return before the end of the regular season.

Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Spotted at morning skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baertschi (concussion) was a full participant at Wednesday's morning skate, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Baertschi, who's been sidelined since Feb. 4 due to post-concussion syndrome, still hasn't been cleared to rejoin the lineup, but he's clearly trending in the right direction. The 26-year-old winger will need to be activated off injured reserve before returning to game action, so another update on his status should surface once that occurs.
