Video: Edler beats Elliott from center ice on Vancouver’s first shot of the game

It took about 13 minutes for the Vancouver Canucks to find their first shot on goal against the Calgary Flames on Saturday night. That shot came from Alexander Edler from center ice and it somehow managed to beat Calgary goaltender Brian Elliott. Knuckle puck! Elliott has had a rocky year with the Flames and this goal kind of sums everything up. The Flames not only prevented the...

Vancouver Canucks: Ben Hutton preview for 2016-2017

The Vancouver Canucks will be looking for a boost in their defense, which was badly thinned out after Alexander Edler was injured back in February, in 2016-2017. While Edler will be back, the Canucks will likely need more defensemen to compete at a high level since Olli Juolevi will likely need more than one season to fully develop. Luckily, they have Ben Hutton, who made his NHL...

Vancouver Canucks: Edler out for six weeks

The Vancouver Canucks do not exactly have a fearsome defense to begin with. Now they will spend most of the remainder of the season without their best defenseman. Alexander Edler is out for six weeks after a fractured tibia sustained in Vancouver’s win against Colorado on February 9. Edler has been one of the only bright spots for the Canucks defense.

Alexander Edler scores on deflection to help Canucks beat Coyotes

  For the second straight game, Arizona Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith was the victim of a puck bouncing off the back of a player into his own net. This time, it was his own back -- no way to celebrate his 33rd birthday -- and it allowed the Vancouver Canucks to avoid a second damaging loss to one of the NHL's worst teams. Alexander Edler's shot glanced off the post and deflected...

Does Jim Benning to Vancouver reopen the trade of Alexander Edler to Boston?

Of the areas for the Boston Bruins that needs fixing this off-season, maybe chief among them is a retooling of a defensive unit that broke down versus the speedy and agile Montreal Canadiens in round two of the Stanley Cup playoffs.Many point to the fact that the Bruins did not have enough speed or puck-moving ability on the blue-line to maintain a level of sustainability for the...

Video: Ryan Reaves destroys Alexander Edler

The Blues resumed play after the Olympic break with a sluggish, unmotivated effort. The Blues looked slow, out of synch and unprepared to take the ice against the Canucks. However, there was one man who looked happy to be back out on the ice and playing hockey. Ryan Reaves. If you missed the late night contest against Vancouver, make sure you don't miss this crushing hit Reaves...
