  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: Shot-blocking guru

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/17/18) Edler's 2017-18 season consisted of 203 blocked shots and a brutal minus-18 rating.

    Edler was able to post 34 points in 70 games, which was his best since the 2011-12 campaign. However, this was his third straight season with a minus rating, but he was consistently lined up against opponents' top lines while being backed by flaky goaltending, so Edler can't be held completely liable.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Collects two assists in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) Edler racked up two assists in Thursday's overtime win over Arizona.

    It was an emotional night in Vancouver and Edler played a key role, helping set up Daniel Sedin's overtime winner on the power play and logging 24:10 of ice time. The veteran rearguard has been a solid fantasy resource in a down year for the Canucks, racking up 34 points, 68 PIM and 171 shots on goal in 68 games. Edler's future in Vancouver remains a question mark, but his strong play this season indicates he still has plenty to offer wherever he lands.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Scores pair of goals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/18) Edler scored twice in Thursday's win over Chicago.

    Edler has now reached the 30-point mark for the first time since the 2014-15 campaign. The 31-year-old logs heavy minutes and remains the quarterback on the first power-play unit. He's isn't an elite fantasy blueliner, but Edler's offensive awareness and willingness to shoot the puck make him worth owning in some fantasy settings.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Multi-point effort in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/18) Edler scored his third goal of the season and added an assist -- both on the power play -- in Saturday's loss to the Sharks.

    It was the fourth multi-point effort of the season for Edler, who has managed to be a decent contributor in a down year for Vancouver. The veteran blueliner has put up 28 points in 60 games and been a fixture on the power play. His offensive production has been inconsistent, bu Edler's strong hit totals and 56 PIM make him a decent well-rounded fantasy blueliner in deeper leagues.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Strong effort in narrow loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/3/18) Edler compiled two power-play assists, four shots, four blocked shots and three hits in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators.

    Edler was on the ice for too many goals based on the minus-2 rating, but it's hard to complain about his all-around effort in this one. Vancouver's 2004 third-round draft pick now has his highest seasonal output in the assist column (24) in six years, with 11 power-play helpers factored into that total. The bad news is that he's only covered two goals on 127 shots for a dismal 1.6 shooting percentage. Edler's worth owning in many formats, though he's best served as a complementary fantasy defenseman at this juncture.
