Edler scored the lone Canucks' goal in Tuesday's loss to the Predators.

Edler is having a decent season for the Canucks, but fantasy-wise, we're left wanting more. The 28-year-old has notched five goals and 14 points in 41 games, putting him on track to fall just short of the 30-point barrier. Edler has helped fantasy owners with a healthy 111 shots on goal and 75 blocked shots, but the Canucks are fading, meaning it's unlikely we see a second-half surge from the former 49-point-getter. Averaging a whopping 24:25 of ice time, Edler could see his production increase if the Canucks get back on track, but keep in the mind the blueliner had just six points in 22 games during the playoff-push stretch at the end of last season.

Edler scored a power-play goal, had an assist, fired five shots on goal, and logged a game-high 27:17 of ice time in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.

Edler now has four points in his last five games, giving him four goals (all on the power play) and 13 points in 37 games on the season, to go with a plus-5 rating. While he hasn't been a huge offensive force this season, the 28-year-old is still on track for 25-30 points, making him a dependable fantasy option in most formats.

Edler gathered an assist and finished with a plus-2 rating over his 25:13 of ice time Tuesday against the Sharks.

Edler boosted his season plus/minus mark to plus-4, a drastic jump from the league-worst minus-39 he posted in 2013-14. Despite that improvement, Edler hasn't quite reemerged as the above-average offensive threat the Canucks were counting on from the blue line. The two-time 40-point scorer has a modest three goals and eight assists over 35 contests.

Edler assisted on a Radim Vrbata power-play goal in Tuesday's win over the Capitals.

While his offensive production hasn't been great, Edler is playing a much better all-around game this season than he did in 2013-14. With three goals and nine points in 25 games, Edler is still on pace to hit the 30-point mark for the fifth time in his career. With Dam Hamhuis (groin) sidelined, Edler will be counted on even more than he was before, meaning we should see a spike in his production. His plus-5 rating this season is a huge improvement over his NHL-worst minus-39 rating in 2013-14.

Edler bagged a power-play goal in Wednesday's win over the Sharks.

Edler has recorded three goals this season -- all on the power play. The 28-year-old is having a great bounce back season thus far, tallying seven points in 14 games, to go with a plus-5 rating. With Vancouver's new offensive acquisitions continuing to produce, expect Edler to continue piling up points, especially on the power play.

Edler netted a power-play goal in Sunday's loss to Nashville.

Edler had gone four straight games without a point, but ended the drought Sunday against the Predators. Edler, who logged a season-high 28:09 of ice time in the loss, now has five points (two goals) in 12 games on the year. Edler is looking much better than he was last last season and should post 30-40 points in 2014-15. After posting an league-worst minus-39 rating in 2013-14, Edler is a plus-2 so far this season.

Edler scored his first goal of the season on the power play and added an assist in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay.

Edler has opened the season with three points in his first four games, to go with a minus-1 rating. Edler is a workhorse on the blueline, where he averages 23:08 of ice time per game, including 3:27 on the power play, where he lines up alongside the likes of Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, and Radim Vrbata. If four games is any indication, Edler is on his way to a nice rebound season with Vancouver.

Edler picked up a goal and an assist, to go with a plus-2 rating in 21:11 of ice time in Thursday's preseason win over Edmonton.

Edler looked very good on Thursday, showing reminiscence of the 49-point player he was in 2011-2012. With some new offensive firepower up front in Radim Vrbata, Nick Bonino, and Linden Vey, there is a very good chance Edler rebounds in 2014-2015 after two seasons of declining production. Edler could very well be the steal of your fantasy draft.

Edler, who left Tuesday's game and didn't return, will miss Thursday's preseason tilt with the Flames. He should slot back into the lineup in the next few days.

Edler left Tuesday's preseason game against the Sharks after taking a puck to the face. He did not return, TSN 1040 reports.

It's unknown the severity of Edler's injury, but he will be evaluated Wednesday. The 28-year-old blueliner logged just 2:02 of ice time on Tuesday before being forced to leave the game with an "upper-body injury". After posting a league-worst minus-39 rating last season, Edler will be looking for a big bounce back campaign in 2014-2015.
