Just a reminder, Alexander Edler still has to serve a two-game suspension to start the Olympic Games.

He is scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Czech Republic as a result. Edler received the ban from the International Ice Hockey Federation Disciplinary Committee for a knee-on-knee hit on Canada's Eric Staal during the 2013 World Championship.

Vancouver defenseman Alexander Edler will attract interest in trade talks this season, TSN's Pierre LeBrun suggests.

"It's time to retool and reset in Vancouver after all these years of contending," LeBrun says. "It's all about youth and other than the Sedin twins, I think all bets are off for almost any other player on that roster. Alexander Edler on defense will get a lot of interest probably after the Olympics. Interesting times ahead, in my opinion, in Vancouver."

Alexander Edler will return from his knee injury on Monday night against Los Angeles.

He has been absent from Vancouver's last 16 games and his return should help bolster the team's back end. "I think some defensemen have played a lot of minutes with the injuries we have had there and it's mounted," coach John Tortorella said. "Eds will give us some minutes and we have to be a harder team to play against in the offensive zone, in their blue, forechecking and having the puck more." Edler will be looking to get back on track from a disappointing start to the year. He had nine points and a minus-12 rating in 27 games prior to getting injured.
