Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Returning to action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (undisclosed) took line rushes during warmups and will play in Wednesday's Game 1 versus the Blues, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Fantenberg missed Friday's Game 4 versus the Wild in their qualifying-round series, but he's apparently shaken off the injury that held him out of that contest. Olli Juolevi will be a healthy scratch Wednesday with Fantenberg ready to resume his duties on the third pairing.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Skates Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (undisclosed) joined his teammates on the ice Tuesday.

Fantenberg would appear to be trending in the right direction ahead of Wednesday's Game 1 against the Blues. If given the all-clear, the blueliner would likely bump Olli Juolevi from the lineup and join Tyler Myers on the third pairing.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Deemed unfit to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (undisclosed) was unfit to play in Friday's Game 4 versus the Wild, Iain MacIntyre of reports.

Fantenberg had appeared in the first three games of the series, and he took warmups Friday, but ultimately didn't play. It's unclear if it was just a healthy scratch or if he's working through a minor injury. Olli Juolevi took Fantenberg's place on the third pairing for Friday's contest.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Snags helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg registered an assist and three blocked shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche.

The Swedish blueliner snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper. Fantenberg has five points in 34 contests this year, surpassing the four points he registered in 61 outings in 2018-19. He's not a high-scoring player by nature, so his fantasy value is extremely limited.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Back in action versus Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (concussion) will be activated from IR and play Saturday versus the Bruins.

Fantenberg will return after five games out of the lineup, and he'll bump out Jordie Benn in the cross-conference clash. It's not a notable move for fantasy gamers, as the 28-year-old defenseman has posted four points over 27 games.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks placed Fantenberg (upper body) on injured reserve Friday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Vancouver has yet to release an expected timetable for Fantenberg's recovery, but he'll miss the team's next three games at a minimum now that he's been placed on IR. Guillaume Brisebois will round out the Canucks' depth on the back end until Fantenberg is ready to return.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Exits Thursday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg suffered an upper-body injury and won't return to Thursday's game against Minnesota.

It's unclear how Fantenberg suffered the injury, but he left the game having appeared in just 12:40 of ice time. The team will roll with five defensemen for the remainder of the game and can be expected to comment on Fantenberg's status ahead of Saturday's game against Calgary.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Supplies pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg collected two assists, two shots on goal, four hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Fantenberg had been held off the scoresheet in his previous 14 games. He doubled his output to four points in 25 games this season, matching his production from 61 appearances last year. The 28-year-old is a marginal defenseman already, and he doesn't warrant fantasy consideration.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Back in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg will return to the lineup for Saturday's tilt in Buffalo, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

Fantenberg was a healthy scratch for Vancouver's 5-2 loss to the Panthers on Thursday after playing 16 straight games. On the year, the 28-year-old blueliner has two points and a minus-4 rating. Jordie Benn will hit the press box Saturday.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Healthy scratched
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg was a healthy scratch during Thursday's loss to the Panthers.

After posting a minus-3 rating during Tuesday's 9-2 loss to Tampa, the Canucks opted to give Fantenberg the night off. He has one goal and one assist through 16 games and will likely rotate in and out as the sixth/seventh defenseman as the season progresses.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Earns rare power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg notched a power-play assist, two hits and four PIM in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.

Fantenberg set up a J.T. Miller goal in the first period to record his first assist of the year. It was also his first power-play point since he had four helpers with the man advantage in 2017-18. The Swede now has two points, 19 hits and 14 blocked shots in 10 appearances. Fantenberg may lose his spot in the lineup when Alexander Edler (upper body) returns to action, but the latter has no timeline currently.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Adds insurance tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg scored a goal on two shots, blocked three shots and dished two hits in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

The 28-year-old Swede topped out at nine points in 27 games in 2017-18 with the Kings. He's not likely to provide scoring skill, but he's replaced Alexander Edler (upper body) in the lineup. Fantenberg is capable of decent non-scoring stats -- he had 91 hits and 74 blocked shots in 61 appearances last year.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Set for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg will make his season debut Sunday against the Oilers.

Fantenberg spent time on IR due to an illness to start the year, but he has since recovered and suited up in two games for AHL Utica, recording no points and a plus-1 rating. With Alexander Edler (upper body) ruled out, Fantenberg will finally take the NHL ice for the first time this season. This won't affect fantasy gamers since Fantenberg has just four goals and nine assists over 88 NHL contests.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Gets bump to big squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks recalled Fantenberg from AHL Utica on Saturday.

Fantenberg has yet to draw in for the big club this season. After spending the first two weeks on injured reserve, the club sent him to the minors to get in some game action. He appeared in two games for Utica and now returns to the top club with a chance to make his debut with the Canucks as soon as Saturday against the Sharks. Fantenterg's summoning may also be a sign that Quinn Hughes (lower body) will not play Saturday.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Shifts to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks assigned Fantenberg to AHL Utica for conditioning purposes on Tuesday.

Fantenberg spent nearly two weeks on injured reserve with an illness, but he was a healthy scratch in all five games both before and after the sickness. The Canucks haven't strayed from their current six defensemen, who have played in every game thus far. Therefore, Fantenberg will get the chance to refine his skills in the minors and stay in game shape while awaiting his next shot with the big club.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (illness) was taken off injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.

Fantenberg was a healthy scratch in every game before his injury, but he spent two weeks on IR and now he's eligible to play again. The 28-year-old's first chance to crack the lineup will be Monday against the Panthers.

Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (illness) remains on injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's game against Detroit, per the NHL's official media site.

Fantenberg has yet to play this season and remains without a timetable for his return to action. Even once he's cleared to play, the 28-year-old will be a healthy scratch more often than not as Vancouver's seventh defensemen, so he can be ignored in all fantasy formats.

October 20, 2019 12:40 PM
Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Sitting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (illness) isn't among Vancouver's lines for warmups Sunday against the Rangers, indicating that he'll sit out the contest, Canucks play-by-play voice Brendan Batchelor reports.

Fantenberg remains on injured reserve, but he's eligible to return at any time moving forward. His next chance to suit up comes Tuesday in Detroit.

October 15, 2019 06:36 PM
Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg (illness) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Fantenberg hasn't played yet this season. His IR placement is retroactive to Oct. 12, so he'll be eligible to return for Saturday's game against the Devils. Even when the 28-year-old's healthy, however, there's a chance he stays in the press box.

October 14, 2019 04:28 PM
Canucks' Oscar Fantenberg: Misses Monday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fantenberg missed Monday's practice with an illness.

Fantenburg has been a healthy scratch in the Canucks' first four games this season. It's unclear when he'll draw into the lineup but he's merely a depth defensive for Vancouver right now.
