Bieksa (undisclosed) logged 20:26 of ice time in Wednesday's win over Calgary, recording four PIM, two shots on goal, and a plus-2 rating.

Bieksa, who was a gametime decision Wednesday, looked good in the win, making some solid defensive plays. He only played 0:11 on the power play, but still found ways to get involved offensively. On nights he doesn't produce point totals, Bieksa will still help your fantasy team by contributing in categories such as PIM, hits, or blocked shots.

Bieksa (shoulder) participated in Wednesday's pregame warmups, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.

Bieksa seemed optimistic after Wednesday's morning skate, and although still a game-time decision, all signs are pointing to the blue liner suiting up.

Bieksa (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's season opener against the Flames, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.

Bieksa was a participant in Tuesday's full practice, but he's still hurting a bit from his run-in with the boards during last week's exhibition game against the Oilers. The veteran wasn't occupying his usual spot next to Dan Hamhuis during practice, instead pairing up with fellow injured blue liner Frank Corrado. The Canucks should have a better idea about his availability after Wednesday's morning skate, but his status could end up coming down to the wire.

Bieksa (undisclosed) could miss Wednesday's regular-season opener vs. the Flames, Team 1040's Matthew Sekeres reports.

Bieksa was not at practice Monday, nursing an undisclosed injury that he presumably suffered at some point in the preseason. The 33-year-old blueliner failed to record a point in three exhibition games, finishing a plus-1, while averaging over 25:00 of ice time. Bieksa, who is expected to be a key asset to the Canucks' defense in 2014-15, is likely to improve on the mere 24 points he achieved in 2013-14.

Bieksa is nursing an undisclosed injury and will not play in Saturday's preseason finale versus the Oilers.

Although coach Willie Desjardins didn't provide much information on the nature of Bieksa's injury, he said the defenseman is "coming among." It seems likely that the Canucks are keeping Bieksa out for maintenance purposes more than anything, so his status for the team's Oct. 8 season opener wouldn't seem at risk.

Kevin Bieksa (leg) participated in Saturday's morning skate and it looks like he'll play against Anaheim.

He hurt his right leg Thursday in a collision with Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog, but he made it through that session. "We'll see how it feels later but obviously I got through the skate okay," Bieksa said. "At this time of year, there are a lot of guys playing injured. So if you can play, you play."

Kevin Bieksa (foot) practiced for a short time Saturday.

Canucks coach John Tortorella said Bieksa was sore. "Kevin wanted to stay on. I kicked him off," Tortorella said. "He had a good skate yesterday. He's been skating well on his own. The whole group has a day off Sunday so, hopefully, the day off and getting him off the ice early today will help him for Monday." Bieksa hasn't played since Jan. 29. He has 19 points in 55 games this season.
