10/19/2013 9:43:00 PM
Description: Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler scored a goal Saturday in his return from a three-game suspension.
Insight: Edler received a three-game ban from the NHL for an illegal hit on San Jose's Tomas Hertl. The defenseman has two goals and four points in his first six games and should remain a strong blue-line option.
 
10/11/2013 5:25:00 PM
Description: Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler has been suspended three games for a hit on San Jose rookie Tomas Hertl Thursday night.
Insight: According to NHL Director of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan, Edler made Hertl's head the "main point of contact." Edler is a repeat offender, as he was suspended last season for charging Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith.

Description: The NHL has suspended Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler two games for charging into Phoenix goalie Mike Smith on Thursday. SOURCE: tsn.ca

1/18/2013 10:38:00 PM
Description: Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler has signed a six-year contract extension.
Insight: Edler is entering his prime after scoring 11 goals with 49 points last season. He ranked as the ninth-best defenseman in standard scoring Yahoo! fantasy leagues last season. He was one of 10 blue liners to take 200 shots on goal and tied for sixth at the position in power play points. His only weakness is a lackluster plus/minus (0). That would improve if he could get some ice time with top defenseman Dam Hamhuis, who has a plus-58 over the last two seasons, but that second spot currently belongs to Kevin Bieksa.
 
11/2/2011 12:41:00 AM
Description: Alex Edler scored a goal and added two assists in the Canucks' 5-1 win over Calgary on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Edler has now put together back-to-back three-point games, as he scored two goals and an assist on Saturday against Washington. Edler is a point-per-game scorer this season (12 points in 12 games), making him one of the top fantasy options on defense over the first month of the season.

Description: Alexander Edler, Maxim Lapierre, and Chris Higgins each scored two goals in the Canucks' 7-4 win over Washington on Saturday. TSN
Insight: Edler also added an assist for a three-point night. Even though the Canucks' offense has struggled prior to Saturday, Edler has seven points (2g-5a) over his last five games.
 
6/16/2011 6:04:00 PM
Description: Alex Edler admitted following Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final that he suffered two broken fingers during Game 6. Vancouver Province
Insight: Edler wasn't alone, as Christian Ehrhoff, Chris Higgins, and Ryan Kesler were also playing with nagging injuries from previous rounds. The injuries appeared to take a toll on the Canucks, as they appeared to have almost nothing left in the tank during Game 7.

Description: Alex Edler is expected to be in the Canucks' lineup for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. Globe & Mail

Description: Alexander Edler returned to the Canucks' lineup on Thursday against Minnesota after missing the past 31 games because of back surgery. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Edler didn't register a point, but he was a +1 and looked solid in 19 minutes of icetime. He is an option for Saturday, when the Canucks face Calgary in their regular-season finale. Don't forget about Edler in playoff pools either.
 
4/1/2011 2:34:00 PM
Description: Alexander Edler participated in a full practice with the Canucks on Friday. TSN
Insight: Edler was originally expected to miss the rest of the regular season. The Canucks have no reason to rush him back, but he may play one or two regular-season tuneup games before the start of the playoffs.

Description: Alexander Edler is expected to be sidelined for the rest of the regular season because of back surgery. Vancouver Province
Insight: Even if Edler was a fast healer and was ready before the playoffs, the Canucks would need to make some roster moves in order to fit his salary under the cap. Single-season leaguers should be okay to drop him and look for another option, if they haven't already done so.

Description: Alexander Edler will be sidelined indefinitely, as he will need to undergo a micro discectomy procedure on his back. TSN
Insight: Edler missed Wednesday's game against Nashville with back spasms. He appeared to injure his back after he delivered a hit on Dallas forward Jamie Benn during Monday's game. Fantasy owners will miss Edler, as he leads Canucks' blueliners with 32 points (8g-24a) in 49 games. His injury may speed up the return of Sami Salo, who has been sidelined all season.
 
1/27/2011 1:15:00 AM
Description: Alexander Edler missed Wednesday's game against Nashville because of back spasms. Sportsnet
Insight: Edler was injured when he hit Jamie Benn during Monday's game against Dallas. Lee Sweatt entered the Canucks' lineup for this game and scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game. Edler's injury is relatively minor, so he'll probably be back after the All-Star break.
