Radim Vrbata is really enjoying his first season in Vancouver.

His play has been outstanding with 31 goals and 61 points in 78 games but is more than pleased that his six-year-old son Krystof has become a hockey fan and is taking skating lessons in Vancouver after not being interested in Phoenix. "That may be the one thing that is most interesting to me and my wife," a smiling Vrbata says. "When we were in Phoenix our son didn’t care about hockey all that much and now he is so much into it. I don’t know if it is because there is hockey on TV all the time here, but he is taking skating lessons now. I take him here (Rogers Arena) to skate, he is watching and wants to know who scored, who we play next. He is really into it and that is something." Vrbata has fit in well with the Sedin twins and the line will lead the Canucks in the playoffs.

Radim Vrbata scored a goal against his former team on Thursday night, but couldn't snag the win from the lowly Coyotes as Vancouver fell 3-2 in a shootout.

Mar 6 - 1:51 AM

Radim Vrbata doesn't expect Thursday's game against Arizona to be an easy one.

The Coyotes have dropped 10 straight games and, as bad as they are, they have to end that streak eventually. For Vrbata though, it's more than that as he has played in 428 games with the Coyotes before leaving them in favor of Vancouver. "We only have 19 games left and we have to be winning and getting points," said Vrbata. "From my experience in the Western Conference with Phoenix the last couple of years -- we missed the playoffs by two points last year, we missed by four points the year before that – every point is important. If it’s a shootout loss, or a shootout win, it makes a difference. It doesn't matter who it's against. We have to be ready for the Coyotes. We better be. Those are points that we need."
Mar 5 - 10:24 AM

Radim Vrbata had two assists in a 6-5 shootout win over St. Louis.

Vrbata has 22 goals and 44 points in 59 contests in 2014-15. He's played primarily with the Sedin twins this season, but he skated on a line with Derek Dorsett and Nick Bonino on Sunday. He'll probably end up back on a line with Henrik and Daniel Sedin eventually, but this situation is worth monitoring closely as Vrbata's fantasy worth does take a hit when he's off the top line, even if he had a good game on Sunday.
Mar 2 - 11:07 AM

Radim Vrbata saw his eight game point streak end on Saturday.

Vrbata had been hot with three goals and nine points during the streak. He has 21 goals and 40 points in 52 games this season with eight goals and eight assists coming on the power play.
