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.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
