Dorsett (undisclosed) resumed practicing Thursday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.

Dorsett occupied his usual role on the fourth line with Bo Horvat and Jannik Hansen during practice, making it likely that he'll be cleared to play Friday against the Coyotes. Coach Willie Desjardins will probably reexamine the conditions of Dorsett and Radim Vrbata (leg) at Friday's morning skate before finalizing any lineup decisions.

Dorsett (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup Tuesday against the Senators, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.

None of the Canucks' five injured skaters felt well enough to take part in the team's morning skate, so coach Willie Desjardins will stick with the same lineup he used Sunday against the Ducks. With Dorsett unavailable, the recently-recalled Brandon DeFazio will make his second career NHL appearance as a member of the Canucks' bottom six.

Dorsett (undisclosed) will not play Sunday against the Ducks, Eric Stephens of the OC Register reports.

As expected, Dorsett will sit out Sunday after sustaining an undisclosed injury Saturday against the Kings. Recent call-up Brandon DeFazio will likely dress in his place.

Dorsett is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ducks with an undisclosed injury, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.

Dorsett reportedly left Saturday's game against the Kings because of the injury, and it will likely hold him out Sunday as well. Brandon DeFazio was recalled from AHL Utica and would probably dress in his place if he can't go.

Dorsett registered a shorthanded goal, an assist, four shots on goal, and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's win over Edmonton.

Not known as a big point producer, Dorsett has still managed four points (one goal) in 11 games this season. Skating on the fourth line, Dorsett sees limited ice time and no power-play time, making him unappealing to fantasy goers. He has never surpassed 20 points in his career, so don't expect a big offensive breakout at age 27.

The New York Rangers have sent Derek Dorsett to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for a third-round pick.

Vancouver seems determined to completely remake their team by the end of the day. Dorsett is a noteworthy player in fantasy circles because he accumulates a ton of penalty minutes while still contributing a bit offensively. The golden example of that was in 2011-12 when he recorded 21 points and 235 PIM in 77 games. He has since been slowed down by injuries. This move isn't likely to change Dorsett's fantasy value much outside of the fact that he's a bit more likely to play regularly with a rebuilding Canucks squad as opposed to a contending Rangers team.
