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.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Delivers two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler notched a pair of assists, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Bruins.

Edler has racked up five assists in his last seven games. The 33-year-old Swede now has 26 points, 99 shots, 140 blocks and 94 hits through 51 contests this year. He should finish the year fairly close to the 34 points he's recorded in each of the last two campaigns.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Contributes assist Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler recorded an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Wild.

Edler's offense has slowed lately -- only three of his 24 points have come in the last nine games. The Swedish defenseman has added 138 blocks, 97 shots on net, 93 hits and a plus-4 rating in 50 appearances. Edler is a solid option in fantasy since he can contribute in non-scoring categories with consistency.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Supplies helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler had an assist, four blocked shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 6-2 win over the Predators.

Edler found Elias Pettersson 58 seconds into the second period to make it 4-0 Canucks at the time. The defenseman is up to 23 points, 128 blocks, 87 hits and 90 shots on net through 47 contests. His solid all-around production makes Edler a viable option in most fantasy formats.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Collects power-play point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler registered a power-play assist during Thursday's loss to the Wild.

Edler only played eight seconds on the man advantage, but that's all that was needed to generate the goal. It was the veteran blueliner's first power-play point since Nov. 21. He was replaced on the second power-play unit by Tyler Myers, while Quinn Hughes quarterbacked the top unit. Edler's fantasy value takes a hit with the lack of power-play time if that's a permanent change, as he has just two points in his last 14 appearances.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Helps out on empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler had an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes.

Edler entered Thursday with no points in his previous six games, but the late assist assured the dry spell wouldn't make it to seven. The Swede is up to 21 points, 108 blocks, 73 hits and 40 PIM in 38 contests.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Point streak reaches four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler supplied two assists and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 7-5 win over the Blackhawks.

The defenseman set up Tanner Pearson in the second period and Bo Horvat's first of two tallies in the third. Edler added four shots on goal, four blocked shots and three hits in the game. The Swede is up to 20 points, 69 shots, 93 blocked shots and 61 hits in 31 appearances this season.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Produces helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler earned an assist, a plus-2 rating and two PIM in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

Edler assisted on an empty-net goal by Tanner Pearson. The defenseman has picked up three assists and a plus-6 rating in his last three contests. Edler now has 18 points, 89 blocked shots and 58 hits through 30 games this year.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Solid at both ends of rink
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler picked up an assist, seven blocked shots and two hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

Edler, in his second game back from an upper-body injury, skated a team-leading 24:31 in the contest. The Swede now has 17 points, 89 blocks, 64 shots on goal and 57 hits in 29 games this season.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Draws assist in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) picked up an assist and went plus-3 in Monday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

Edler added two blocked shots and two shots on goal while skating 19:47 in the contest. He's averaged 23:38 per game prior to Monday, but the Swede made need to be eased back into action after spending 10 games on the shelf. He's up to 16 points, 82 blocks, 63 shots on goal and 55 hits through 28 appearances this season.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) will return to the lineup for Monday's matchup with Edmonton, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Edler has been sidelined for over three weeks with an upper-body injury, so his ice time may be limited to an extent against the Oilers. The veteran blueliner notched four goals and 15 points through the first 27 games of the campaign prior to his 10-game absence.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Still no timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) skated Thursday, but there's still no timetable for his return to the lineup.

Edler has been sidelined since Dec. 1 with an upper-body injury, and although he's clearly making progress in his recovery, his return to game action doesn't appear to be imminent. The veteran blueliner will need to be activated off injured reserve before rejoining the lineup, so expect another update on his status once that occurs.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Set to miss at least two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) will be re-evaluated in two weeks according to coach Travis Green.

Edler was placed on injured reserve earlier Tuesday. Green's comments came after Tuesday's game versus the Senators. That timeline indicates Edler won't be available before Dec. 17, when the Canucks face the Canadiens. Oscar Fantenberg should remain in the lineup in Edler's stead.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Edler was already ruled out for Tuesday's matchup against the Senators, and his IR placement affords the Canucks roster flexibility. The veteran blueliner is eligible to return for the team's next contest, Saturday against the Sabres.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Sitting for second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Senators, NHL.com's Kevin Woodley reports.

The Canucks have yet to release any details regarding the severity of Edler's injury or a potential timetable for his return, but for now, he can be considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Sabres. Oscar Fantenberg will continue to round out Vancouver's depth on the back end until Edler's ready to return.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Will miss first game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Oilers, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

Edler was hurt during Saturday's win against the Canucks and will miss the rematch. The 33-year-old defenseman's absence is a huge loss for the Canucks, as he's averaged 23:38 per game and totaled 15 points through 27 outings. Quinn Hughes could work as the top left-handed defenseman in his stead.

December 1, 2019 02:16 PM
Canucks' Alexander Edler: Done early Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler left Saturday's game versus the Oilers with an upper-body injury and will not return.

The Swedish defenseman had two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a hit prior to his exit. The cause of his injury is unknown at this time. Edler is a huge part of the Canucks' blue-line group -- he's averaged 23:55 per game this season entering Saturday, and he's recorded 15 points and 80 blocked shots in 27 contests. The Canucks play the Oilers again Sunday, so Edler would need to make a quick turnaround to avoid missing games. After the game, coach Travis Green said Edler was doubtful for Sunday's rematch against the Oilers, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Canucks' Alexander Edler: Relentless in defensive zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler missed the scoresheet against the Penguins on Wednesday, though he accumulated eight hits and six blocked shots in the 8-6 loss.

A quality two-way defenseman, Edler is on pace for 48 points (13 goals, 35 assists) through 82 games, thereby cementing his status as a universally owned fantasy option. His willingness to jump in front of pucks and send opponents against the boards should be taken into account as well.

November 25, 2019 12:24 PM
Canucks' Alexander Edler: Looks ready to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edler (upper body) is expected to play Monday against the Flyers.

Originally deemed a game-time decision, coach Travis Green relayed optimism about Edler's status. The 33-year-old looks like he'll avoid missing his first game of the season. Edler has averaged a whopping 24:48 per contest, and it's translated into promising production with 15 points and 68 blocked shots over 23 outings.
