  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: Two assists in road loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/18) Edler recorded a pair of assists Tuesday, in a 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Edler has come out of the gates fast this season, with four assists in three games. The 32-year-old has battled injuries in the past, having not played a full slate of games since 2011-12. If he stays healthy, Edler can be a serviceable fantasy commodity though one shouldn't expect him to fill up the stat sheet every night.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Gets in way of five shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/4/18) Edler registered a game-high five blocked shots Wednesday in a 5-2 home win over the Flames.

    Edler's top-pairing assignment should yield decent offensive totals, especially considering he's deployed on the No. 1 power-play unit, though a knack for redirecting shots has been the primary focus for Edler since the start of the 2017-18 campaign. The Swede recorded career highs in hits (157) and blocked shots (203) last season, reminding the hockey world that he's a sneaky two-way defenseman on a young team looking for traction in the Pacific Division.

    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.
