Garrison was a disappointment last season with eight goals and 16 points in 48 games after inking a six-year/$27.6 million contract with Vancouver. However, he's bounced back in a big way by recording eight points in as many games in 2013-14.

Jason Garrison scored his eighth goal of the season in the Canucks 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.
Garrison has had a rough season until April. In Garrison's first 35 games, he had eight points, but in the past 12 games he has matched that. Garrison is capable of decent production thanks to his point shot but there are more talented options to consider come playoff time. If you're in a draft format in your playoff pools, then he is someone to keep your eye on.

Jason Garrison has answered the Vancouver Canucks' need for a right-side defenseman.
Even though Garrison is a left-handed shot and has played mostly as a left-side blueliner, the Canucks switched him over to the right side and coach Alain Vigneault says he's been a blessing. "Jason has been really, really, really efficient," stated Vigneault said Friday. "For someone who originally had some reserve about playing the right side, he hasn't been awkward at all as far as turning and going back for pucks and finding the outlet pass. He's been really good."

Jason Garrison registered a power play goal in the Canucks' 3-2 win over Colorado Sunday.
Garrison's fantasy owners have been clamoring for him to be given an opportunity on Vancouver's top unit with the man advantage and that finally happened tonight, with good results. The suspension being served by Alexander Edler may have something to do with Garrison's new role, but we'll take it nonetheless. Alex Burrows and Mason Raymond also found the back of the net for Vancouver in the win.

Jason Garrison recorded his third goal of the year in Vancouver's 4-2 loss to Phoenix on Tuesday.
Garrison received a heavy workload on Tuesday, as the Canucks were missing Kevin Bieksa on the blueline. Garrison responded with five shots on goal in over 21 minutes of ice time. While he hasn't lived up to his offensive expectations so far this season, fantasy owners shouldn't completely give up on him yet.

Jason Garrison continues to struggle with the Vancouver Canucks.
Garrison was expected to be part of the Canucks first defensive pairing and first power play with Alexander Edler but he has not been on the top power play unit for the last five games and it has been 10 games since he has been paired with Edler as he is now on the third pairing alongside Keith Ballard. He signed a six-year/$27.6 million deal with Vancouver in the off-season and while no one expected him to score 16 goals like he did last season, everyone expected more than a goal and an assist in 15 games. One good thing is that he is a plus-six this season. Expect Garrison to break loose as he has too much offensive talent to continue not scoring.

Canucks captain Henrik Sedin is opening the season with high hopes for new Vancouver defenseman Jason Garrison.
"I knew Jason had a great shot but he has been a nice surprise for all of us," Sedin said. "He reads the play really well. He's really calm with the puck and he makes the easy play all the time." Goalie Cory Schneider faced Garrison in both Canuck scrimmages this week and was also impressed. "I saw about 15 of his shots so he's a shoot-first defenseman, which is great," Schneider commented. "I think we've all been very impressed with his fitness and his strength and I think he's going to be a big minute-eater for us this year." Garrison likely will play alongside Alex Edler on the power-play point.
