  • Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Returning to action Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/19) Virtanen (lower body) will rejoin the action Thursday against the Predators.

    Virtanen missed two games in a row while battling a lower-body issue, but his return up front Thursday should provide Vancouver with some additional offensive firepower. Although the 22-year-old hasn't pieced together quite as strong of a campaign at the top level as the Canucks were hoping for when they drafted him sixth overall in 2014, he does have career-high marks for both points (25) and goals (15) this season.

    Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Out Tuesday, could play on trip

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/19) Virtanen (lower body) will miss Tuesday's game against the Sharks, but coach Travis Green hopes he will play during the team's two-game road trip to close out the season.

    It appears as though it's not the last we've heard from Virtanen this season, whether it be for one or two more contests. The fourth-year winger has posted the best campaign of his career in 2018-19, collecting a career-best 25 points -- 15 goals and 10 assists -- over just 68 games thanks to his occasional inclusion on the power play. He'll look to add some icing to the cake, but the Canucks will run with the same lineup Tuesday that they used in Saturday's shootout win over the Stars.

    Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Won't suit up Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/19) Virtanen is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

    This effectively renders Virtanen a scratch for Saturday's game against the Stars, while paving the way for Sven Baertschi to make his third post-injury appearance following a nasty concussion that cost him 23 games. There are now only three possible games for Virtanen to draw into for the 2018-19 season. However, he's already established career highs in goals (15) and points (25) through 68 contests.

    Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Hits 25-point plateau

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/19) Virtanen scored a goal and dished out three hits in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Ducks.

    Virtanen is up to 15 goals and 25 points in 67 games this season, as well as 144 hits and 149 shots. It's been a career year for the New Westminster native, but his fantasy value remains limited to deep formats that reward physical play.

    Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Sinks 14th goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/19) Virtanen scored a goal and added three hits and two blocked shots in a 7-4 win over the Senators on Wednesday.

    It was a fairly busy night for the physical winger, who extended his career high in points to 24 from 64 games. Virtanen's also collected 134 hits and 142 shots this season. Unfortunately, Virtanen's recent production has slowed, as the goal was only his second point in six outings since returning from a rib injury on March 9.
