Granlund inked a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Oilers on Monday.
Granlund -- who wasn't included among Vancouver's qualifying offer list -- will remain north of the border after signing with Edmonton. The center put up 12 goals, 10 helpers and 123 shots last season while averaging 15:03 of ice time. The 25-year-old figures to take on a bottom-six role with his new club and should be capable of hitting the 20-point mark again in 2019-20.
Granlund didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Canucks on Tuesday, which means he'll be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Granlund was a regular in Vancouver's lineup this season, notching 12 goals and 22 points in 77 contests, but the Canucks clearly believe that his production can be replaced by a younger, cheaper option. The 26-year-old Finn should be able to find a new home with a forward-needy NHL club once free agency opens.
Granlund netted a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Nashville.
That's back-to-back games with a goal for Granlund, who now has 12 on the year to go along with 10 assists. Thursday's marker was just his third power-play point of 2018-19, as the 25-year-old has seen a reduced role in Vancouver's lineup this season.
Granlund scored his 11th goal of the season in a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Tuesday.
Granlund has seen his role reduced this season, averaging 15:03 per game compared to 16:15 last year. He's produced 21 points in 75 appearances with 119 shots on goal.
Granlund scored a goal on four shots and added four hits in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks.
Granlund had been stuck on nine goals since Feb. 5 before he beat Corey Crawford to give the Canucks a 2-1 lead in the second period. The Finnish forward hit 20 points for the second time in his career, with 10 goals and assists apiece in 68 games this year.
Granlund was on the ice for 21:08 during Wednesday's win over the Rangers.
It's a bit surprising to see him on the ice so much, considering he was a healthy scratch in the game prior. This is partly due to Antoine Roussel leaving the game with a knee injury, so Granlund picked up some of Roussel's minutes. Don't be fooled into thinking Granlund's increase in ice time is due to his play -- he's been scratched in three of the past six outings. However, his place in the lineup is a little more secure with all the current injuries to his teammates.
Granlund picked up a goal in Tuesday's loss to Washington.
Granlund had been stuck in the press box during the prior two contests but came back in for Tuesday's affair, rewarding his team with a goal. That gives him nine goals and nine assists in 52 games, making him valuable in only the deepest of leagues.
Granlund has gone pointless in his past three games.
Prior to the current drought, Granlund had three points in two games. However, prior to that, he was held pointless for eight straight contests. His 17 points in 51 games this year show he can chip in, but can't be relied on to score consistently. He can provide some value to those in deeper leagues.
Granlund has three points in his last six games after having only one point in his previous 12 contests.
Two seasons ago, Granlund scored 19 goals and added 13 assists as a 23-year-old. Last year, he saw his numbers drop to eight goals and four assists. However, the Finn is rebounding a bit, as he has six goals and eight helpers through 39 games this year.
Granlund will look to snap his six-game point drought Thursday versus Nashville.
Granlund has been ice cold for the past few weeks, having just a single point in his last dozen games. He has 11 points in 33 games, and needs just two more to surpass last season's total. Centering the third line and second power-play unit, the opportunities are there for him to succeed. If he can get on the scoresheet soon, that would do wonders for his confidence and getting him back on track.
Granlund got the Canucks lone goal in Tuesday's loss to the Kings.
Granlund had gone pointless in the past five games, and only has two tallies in his last nine outings. Prior to that, he had a streak of six points in as many games. He's on pace for 33 points, one more than his career best set back in 2016-17. He may need another hot streak or two to get there, but it's within reach.
Granlund scored a goal in Monday's 5-2 win over the Wild.
Granlund was riding a six-game pointless streak into the game, but he ended that quickly with the first score of the game. It helped that Granlund was working on the top line and logged over 19 minutes of ice (21:05) for the first time this season.
Granlund tallied one assist Tuesday, in a 3-2 overtime win against the Penguins.
The Finnish-born center logged 17:00 of ice time Tuesday, registering one point along the way. Now with three in the season's first six games, Granlund continues to try and help shoulder at least some of the load left behind by the Sedins retiring, though expecting the 25-year-old to replace two Canucks legends is not realistic. Regardless of format, Granlund probably isn't worth a spot on your fantasy roster.
Granlund was held off the scoresheet in the Canucks' 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Tuesday.
Granlund played just under 15 minutes in this game, registering one shot on goal in the process. The Finnish center regressed in 2017-18, totaling 12 points a year after posting a 32-point campaign. He will undoubtedly be expected to take on a bigger role this upcoming season now that Vancouver is without Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
Granlund (ankle) will suit up versus the Oilers on Tuesday.
Granlund saw a significant drop in production last season, as he managed a mere eight goals and four assists -- well off the 32 points he put up in 2016-17. With the Sedin twins gone, the natural center should take on a bigger role this year.
Granlund (ankle) secured a one-year contract extension with the Canucks on Friday. According to Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet, the deal is worth $1.475 million.
Granlund is a versatile two-way contributor, but he hasn't quite lived up to his lofty draft profile since the Flames originally took him in the second round of the 2011 draft. The Finn recorded eight goals and four assists against a minus-10 rating over 53 games of an injury-shortened 2017-18 campaign with Vancouver. Granlund underwent ankle surgery in February, but the team hasn't offered much of an update in that regard, so we'll take that as a "no news is good news" scenario.
Granlund (ankle) is set to undergo surgery with Canucks coach Travis Green telling reporters the winger "will be out a while."
While there's no firm timetable for Granlund's return, it's safe to deduce that he'll miss at least a month since he'll go under the knife and would otherwise put a ton of stress on the injured ankle through skating. The Canucks are flush with offensive talent on the right wing even without Granlund, whose spot in the lineup should continue to be filled by Reid Boucher -- a 24-year-old who busted out with a two-goal performance in the last game in Dallas on Sunday.
The Canucks placed Granlund (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.
Granlund has already missed one game due to his ankle ailment, and now he'll miss at least three more after landing on the injured list Saturday. The 24-year-old forward's absence will test the Canucks' depth up front, but it shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only totaled eight goals and 12 points in 53 games this campaign.
Granlund (ankle) won't play Friday against the Hurricanes.
Granlund will also miss Sunday's game against Dallas since he's headed back to Vancouver. The 24-year-old winger has compiled eight goals and 12 points in 53 games, as he's barely an offensive threat since he starts 61.8 percent of his even-strength shifts in the defensive zone. Expect further updates ahead of Wednesday's game against the Panthers.
Per coach Travis Green, Granlund (ankle) will return to Vancouver to undergo further evaluation.
This news all but rules the Finnish forward out of of Friday's game in Carolina, and leaves him questionable at best for Sunday's road match against the Stars. A more definite timetable for Granlund's recovery should be established once he's reevaluated by Vancouver's training staff, but for now, it appears as though he may be looking at an extended absence.
