Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Earns helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen picked up an assist, a team-leading six shots and two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks.

It was a spirited effort from Virtanen, who couldn't solve Coyotes goalie Darcy Kuemper on his own, but set up Tanner Pearson for a goal at 6:16 of the third period. Virtanen has a career-high 36 points to go with 144 shots, 97 hits and 39 PIM in 66 games this season. His role can be inconsistent at times -- the Canucks have a deep forward group, which occasionally shuffles Virtanen to the bottom six despite his solid production.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen scored a power-play goal and tallied an assist during Tuesday's 4-3 win over Montreal.

The assist was Virtanen's first helper since Jan. 27, but the forward has goals in back-to-back contests and is up to 35 points in 62 games this season. Slightly concerning was Virtanen's ice time, as the Canucks' winger played only 12:01 in Tuesday's win.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen had a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

Virtanen set up Tyler Myers for the opening goal, and the two swapped roles as Virtanen's tally stretched the Canucks' lead to 3-0 seven minutes later. The winger added four shots on goal and two hits. The 23-year-old has five power-play points this year -- all of which have come in the last seven contests. Virtanen is up to 23 points in 40 contests in 2019-20, just two shy of his career-high 25 points from last year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

For the year, Virtanen has 11 markers, 10 assists, 74 shots on goal and 64 hits in 39 contests. He should easily shatter his previous career high of 25 points, set last season.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Scores late PPG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen scored his ninth of the year with two-and-a-half minutes left in regulation, his second goal in as many games. The 23-year-old amassed career highs in points (25) and goals (15) in 2018-19 and is on pace to surpass both of those totals this season.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Finds twine in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen scored a goal and added two PIM in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.

Virtanen cut the deficit to 2-1 just 48 seconds after Timo Meier had doubled the Sharks' lead in the third period. Virtanen has produced two goals and five helpers in his last eight games. For the year, the 23-year-old winger is at 16 points, 59 shots on goal and 54 hits through 33 appearances. Those numbers are strong enough to warrant attention in deeper fantasy formats.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Nabs two helpers against Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sabres.

The 23-year-old has run hot and cold this season, but Virtanen's on a nice roll at the moment with a goal and six points in his last five games. That hot streak has pushed him up to 15 points (seven goals, eight helpers) in 30 games on the year, but his third-line placement and lack of power-play time will keep him on the fringes of fantasy relevance.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Earns assist Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen (illness) picked up an assist and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

Virtanen's helper came on an Oscar Fantenberg goal in the third period. The winger didn't have to miss a game due to his illness, and it's a good thing too -- he's up to a goal and three assists in his last four games. Virtanen has 13 points, 51 hits and 54 shots on goal in 29 appearances this season, mostly in a bottom-six role.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Good to go versus Sens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen (illness) took pregame warmups and will play Tuesday versus the Senators, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Virtanen was deemed a game-time decision earlier Monday, but he'll be ready to play. He has 12 points in 28 contests this season, and he's set to skate in a third-line role. Nikolay Goldobin is a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen (illness) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa.

If Virtanen's unable to go, Zach MacEwen will draw into the lineup against the Senators. Confirmation on the 23-year-old's status likely won't surface until Vancouver takes the ice for pregame warmups, so owners considering deploying Virtanen in daily contests should plan accordingly.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Garners assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen picked up an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

Virtanen's helper came on the last goal of the game, scored by Josh Leivo. Virtanen has taken a step forward on offense this year, with 12 points in 27 games. He's added 53 shots and 48 hits, making him of some interest to fantasy owners in deeper formats despite his third-line role.
