Canucks' Alexander Edler: Slides helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler posted an assist in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Canadiens.

Edler earned the secondary helper on Jay Beagle's third-period tally. It's been a somewhat quiet start to 2020-21 for Edler, who has four assists, 19 shots on goal, 16 hits and 17 blocked shots in 11 appearances. The Swede continues to play well on the ice, but at 34 years old, his scoring touch is likely on the decline.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Posts assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler notched an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Jets.

Edler set up Brock Boeser for the opening tally only 29 seconds after the initial puck drop. Offense hasn't been Edler's focus in 2020-21, as he has only three assists through 10 appearances this season. The Swede has contributed a plus-3 rating, 18 shots on goal, 15 hits and 16 blocked shots -- there's value to be had in deeper formats that reward Edler's strong physical game.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Fills stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler posted an assist, four hits, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Monday's 7-1 win over the Senators.

Edler had the lone helper on the first of Brandon Sutter's three goals in the contest. Beyond that, Edler had a solid all-around game through his physical play. The Swede has two assists, 15 shots on goal, 15 hits and 10 blocks through seven outings. He's topped 30 points in each of the last three seasons despite missing time to injuries each year. However, he entered Monday with 18:27 per game this season compared to 22:37 last year, and he's no longer featured on either power-play unit, so he may be in line for a quieter campaign.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Ready for Saturday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) will play in Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

Edler's absence lasted just one game, as he'll return to the lineup for a third straight matchup against the Habs. Through five games this year, the 34-year-old has posted an assist, nine shots on net, seven hits and four blocked shots.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) is trending toward not playing in Saturday's game versus the Canadiens, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 reports.

Edler exited Wednesday's contest with the injury and didn't suit up Thursday. With Edler out, Olli Juolevi entered the lineup in a top-four role on the blue line. Juolevi will likely reprise that role if Edler is ruled out ahead of Saturday's game.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) isn't on the ice for warmups, indicating he won't play in Thursday's game against Montreal, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Edler suffered the injury in Wednesday's game, and his timetable for a return remains unclear. Along with Edler, Travis Hamonic (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, so the defensive core will be down two players. Look for Brogan Rafferty, Jalen Chatfield and Olli Juolevi to all enter the lineup for Thursday's game.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Exits early Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler suffered an upper-body injury and won't return to Wednesday's game against the Canadiens.

Edler logged just 6:47 of ice time before departing. The 34-year-old handles a significant role on the Canucks' blue line, playing more than 20 minutes on a consistent basis. The Canucks may not provide an update Wednesday, so his status is uncertain for Thursday's rematch against the Canadiens.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Practices Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (leg) joined the Canucks at practice Sunday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

Edler's leg was cut by a skate in Saturday's contest against Calgary but it appears he avoided any major damage. Barring a setback, he should be good to go for Monday's rematch with the Flames.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Cut by skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (leg) was cut on a skate in the third period of Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Flames. After the game, head coach Travis Green didn't know how serious the injury was, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Adding insult to literal injury, Edler was called for an interference minor on a neutral-zone collision with Matthew Tkachuk. Edler was hurt when Tkachuk's skate came up as he fell, catching Edler in the left leg below the knee. The 34-year-old defenseman is a critical part of the Canucks' blue line -- missing him for any amount of time would be bad for the team. An update on his status should surface prior to Monday's rematch with the Flames.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Notches assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler produced an assist, three blocked shots and three shots on goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Oilers.

Edler was a factor in all aspects of the game, although he also looked tired at times after skating 25:32 in Wednesday's season opener. The helper was his first point of the year to go with four hits and three blocks. The 34-year-old usually provides a well-rounded stat line -- he had 33 points, 162 blocked shots and 108 hits in 59 outings last year.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Bags helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler recorded an assist, four shots on goal, six blocked shots and three hits in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Vegas in Game 4.

Edler made a mark on all parts of the game, although it wasn't enough to save the Canucks from falling in a 3-1 series deficit. The Swede has seven assists, 55 blocked shots, 36 shots on net and 29 hits through 14 playoff contests.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Provides pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler recorded two assists, four blocked shots, four PIM and a plus-4 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Vegas in Game 2.

Edler set up Elias Pettersson for a second-period tally and added the secondary helper on Bo Horvat's goal early in the third. The all-around strong effort from Edler gave him six assists, 45 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 12 contests.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Expected to be fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (ear) is expected to be fine for Friday's Game 6, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Edler was cut by a skate during the second period of Wednesday's Game 5 win over the Blues, but he shouldn't be forced to miss any further action as a result. However, if his prognosis changes, another update on his status will undoubtedly surface prior to Game 6. The 34-year-old blueliner has picked up four assists through Vancouver's first nine postseason contests.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Cut by skate in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (face/ear) was cut by a skate during the second period of Wednesday's Game 5 and did not return for the start of the third, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Edler appeared to be cut on the ear by Jordan Kyrou's skate late in the second period. The 34-year-old blueliner immediately required the attention of team doctors in the locker room. It's unclear if the injury will affect Edler's availability for Friday's Game 6.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Notches assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler posted an assist, two shots on goal and four PIM in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Blues in Game 4.

Edler had the lone helper on J.T. Miller's second-period tally. The 34-year-old Edler also served two minor penalties, but neither of them resulted in a Blues goal. The Swede has two helpers, 18 blocked shots and seven shots on net through four games in the series.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Effective all over ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler produced two assists, four hits and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Wild in Game 2.

Edler also skated a team-high 24:06 in the contest. The Swedish blueliner collected 33 points, 162 blocks and 108 hits in 59 outings during the regular season. Edler's usage is that of a shutdown defenseman, but he's more than capable of chipping in on offense as well.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Records two shots Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler registered two shots, two blocks and one hit in 16:34 of ice time against Winnipeg on Wednesday.

Edler was back in action after suffering an undisclosed injury in practice Saturday. The blueliner averaged 22:37 of ice time this season during the regular season and was likely just being eased back Wednesday. Fantasy players should expect him to take on more minutes heading into Sunday's clash with Minnesota.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Helped off ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (undisclosed) had to be helped off the ice after going down hard during Saturday's practice, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Due to the NHL's new injury update policy, the Canucks won't be releasing any details regarding the specific nature or severity of Edler's issue, so we likely won't have an idea of whether he's in danger of missing game action until Vancouver starts practicing in Edmonton next week.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Passes 400 career points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Islanders.

Edler set up tallies by Adam Gaudette and Zack MacEwen in the contest. The helpers were Edler's 400th and 401st points in his 873-game career. The Swedish blueliner added four blocked shots, three shots on net and two hits in Tuesday's game. He's up to 33 points, 162 blocks, 118 hits and 108 hits through 59 outings in 2019-20.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Collects 300th career helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler posted an assist, three hits and two PIM in Friday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche.

Edler had the secondary helper on Troy Stecher's opening tally in the first period. The Swedish defenseman has racked up a goal and seven assists through his last eight games. Edler's helper Friday was the 300th of his career, which came in his 871st game. In 2019-20, he's managed 31 points, 156 blocked shots, 113 shots and 104 hits through 57 outings.
