Dorsett scored the Canucks' only goal Tuesday, finding twine shorthanded in the second period for his fourth tally of the season.

With 10 points on the year now, Dorsett's exceeded his total from each of the past two seasons. If he can stay healthy -- which is always an issue -- he could make a run at a new career high, although that's a low bar, given that his current high is 20 points, set in 2011-12 with the Jackets.

Dorsett picked up 15 PIM in Sunday's loss to the Senators.

Dorsett now has 66 PIM on the season -- second most in the NHL. With three goals and nine points in 26 games, Dorsett is a decent option in deeper formats. He could reach the 30-point barrier in his first season with Vancouver.

Dorsett scored his third goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Washington.

Dorsett now has nine points in 23 games this season, to go with a fantasy relevant 51 PIM. While it's nice to see the fourth-liner appearing on the scoresheet, keep in mind Dorsett is a bottom-six player for a reason. While he may not be valuable in shallow formats, the fact Dorsett is playing with Bo Horvat and Jannik Hansen makes him worthy of a look in some very deep leagues. He could reach the 30-point mark for the first time in his career this season.

Dorsett picked up a pair of assists and was a plus-3 in Sunday's win over the Blackhawks.

Dorsett (undisclosed) practiced Friday and seems likely to play Friday against the Coyotes.

Dorsett returned to practice Thursday and participated again Friday, making him a likely candidate to return to the lineup. The injury caused him to miss two games, though the team never specified the nature. He is expected to join the fourth line alongside Linden Vey and Jannik Hansen.

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.
