  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: Designated for IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/17) Edler (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    With Edler set to miss 4-to-6 weeks, it should come as no surprise to find him on IR. The Canucks will likely use the extra roster spot for a replacement for Loui Eriksson (knee) -- who is expected to miss approximately 10 days. Newly acquired Derrick Pouliot figures to slot into the third pairing while the veteran Edler is sidelined.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Facing 4-6 week absence

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/14/17) Edler (lower body) will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks with a sprained MCL.

    This is a significant blow to Vancouver, as Edler is a top-pairing defenseman who averaged 3:03 of power-play ice time in his first three games, including Thursday's match against Winnipeg when he was limited to 6:10 due to the ailment. As a reinforcement option, look for Derrick Pouliot to be pressed into the lineup, perhaps as soon as Saturday's home tilt versus the Flames.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Exits Thursday's game with injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/12/17) Edler (lower body) has been ruled out of the remainder of Thursday's game against the Jets, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

    The severity of Edler's ailment remains unknown, but if he's unable to go Saturday, Derrick Pouliot will likely slot into Vancouver's lineup against the Flames. The Canucks' should release an update on Edler's status ahead of puck drop Saturday evening.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Anchors second power-play unit at practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/4/17) Edler was quarterbacking the team's second power-play unit at practice on Wednesday, according to Sportsnet 650's Joey Kenward.

    Edler and Chris Tanev are expected to form the team's top defensive pairing this season, but Edler is also expected to see regular power-play time. The 31-year-old was held pointless during three preseason games and has managed just 41 points over his last two injury-riddled seasons. Vancouver's youth movement could help Edler produce better numbers, but it could also lead to decreased ice time for the veteran. The Swede still has plenty of gas left in the tank, so if he can stay healthy, Edler will have the right tools in place to turn in a bounce-back campaign.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: GM wants blueliner to stay put

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/27/17) Edler will not be actively shopped by the Cancuks as the team looks to rebuild, theScore reports.

    GM Jim Benning reportedly wants to retain the likes of Edler and Chris Tanev to avoid putting too much pressure on younger players that should emerge in the coming years. Edler has been in the league for a decade, with the Swede tacking on at least 20 points in each season -- save for his abbreviated rookie campaign. However, the Canucks have been rather suspect defensively, and it's culminated in a minus-28 rating for Edler over the past two years. The Red Wings -- for one -- could really use the ice hog as a top-pairing power-play defenseman, but Benning apparently has other ideas. Expect a relatively low fantasy ceiling so long as Edler remains in Vancouver.
