Dan Hamhuis will return to Vancouver's blue line against Calgary on Saturday.

"And it's been a long couple of months," Hamhuis told Kevin Woodley, "especially the first month dealing with the severity of the injury and the second month getting back into playing shape." Hamhuis has missed the last 21 games after taking a puck to the face. In 27 games this season the veteran defender has accumulated four points, 34 hits, and 43 blocks and he will pair with Luca Sbisa as the team's second defensive unit.
Feb 6 - 8:59 PM

Dan Hamhuis (facial fractures) should be back on Saturday.

It would be Hamhuis' first game since Dec. 9. The fact that Vancouver likes his chances of returning on Saturday is probably what motivated the Canucks to place Yannick Weber on waivers Friday afternoon.
Feb 5 - 3:37 PM

Dan Hamhuis (facial fractures) will miss Thursday's game.

Canucks coach Willie Desjardins previously stated that Hamhuis was more likely to return on Saturday than Thursday, so this isn't a surprise. Hamhuis has four assists in 27 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 4 - 3:33 PM

Odds are that Dan Hamhuis (facial fractures) will return on Saturday rather than Thursday, per coach Willie Desjardins.

Either way, Hamhuis is clearly day-to-day at this point. He has four assists in 27 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 3 - 4:55 PM

Dan Hamhuis (facial fractures) is close to returning to action.

Hamhuis suffered the injury on December 9 when he took a puck to the face. Hamhuis is slated to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and the Canucks could unload him at the trade deadline if they are out of the playoff race. Hamhuis does have a no-movement clause and that could hinder any attempt to deal him. He has four assists in 27 games so his fantasy value is negligible.
Feb 1 - 8:52 AM

Dan Hamhuis (facial fractures) has resumed skating.

Hamhuis might be able to rejoin the Canucks in early-to-mid February. He has four assists in 27 contests in 2015-16.
Jan 22 - 6:18 PM

Dan Hamhuis has facial fractures as a result of being struck by the puck during Wednesday's game.

Hamhuis will need to undergo surgery on Friday. There's no timetable for his recovery at this time, but we might get more information after the operation. He has four assists in 27 games this season.

According to the postgame presser from Canucks' head coach Willie Desjardins, Dan Hamhuis was hospitalized after taking a puck to the face during a 2-1 win over the Rangers.

Desjardins told reporters he "may have a broken jaw" after taking a puck to the face late in the game. Hamhuis had to be helped off the ice and it didn't look good as the blood was pouring from his face. It was also reported he left the arena on a stretcher. Hamhuis has just four assists in 27 games and isn't a fantasy-relevant player.

Dan Hamhuis (lower body) will be back in the fold Monday.

He has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury. Hamhuis has two assists and 15 hits in eight games this year.
Mon, Nov 2, 2015 02:27:00 PM

Dan Hamhuis (lower body) isn't traveling with the Vancouver Canucks.

That means that Hamhuis won't play in Dallas on Thursday or Arizona on Friday. Vancouver has called up Alex Biega to help deal with Hamhuis' absence. Hamhuis is still being evaluated so it's not clear how long he'll be sidelined for.
Wed, Oct 28, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Dan Hamhuis will be held out of Tuesday's tilt with Montreal with a lower body injury.

Coach Desjardins noted that Hamhuis could go if he needed to, but "he's a little banged up" so the veteran blue liner will get the night off. Through eight games, Hamhuis has a pair of points, eight blocks, and 15 hits while averaging 19:15 a night.

Dan Hamhuis is looking for his fourth medal at the World Championships.

Hamhuis has had a storied international career that was capped by winning Gold at the 2014 Olympics. He also won Gold at the 2007 Worlds and will try to make it a double this year as Canada has reached the semi-finals for the first time in six years. "I think talent-wise, our 2008 team was one of the best, but this year’s team is right up there as well," Hamhuis said. "This is one of the closer teams I’ve been on at world championships. We’re the second youngest team at the tournament and have scored the most goals, so there was lots going well for us through the round robin. We’ve got a great coach in Todd McLellan and the whole staff, and he’s given us a similar game plan to the Olympics where we were going to play good defense and check our way to wins rather than just trying to outscore the other teams. We’ve scored a lot of goals, but it has come from playing good defense."

Dan Hamhuis recorded an assist in the Canucks' 2-1 win over Calgary in Game 5 of the first round series.

That was Hamhuis' first point of the 2015 playoffs. He also took a minor delay of game penalty for hitting the puck over the glass, but Vancouver successfully killed that shorthanded situation.
Fri, Apr 24, 2015 11:35:00 AM

Dan Hamhuis picked up 12 PIMs during Friday's 4-1, series-tying victory over Calgary.

Hamhuis picked up a normal interference penalty at 15:46 of the third, the game was already out of reach by then. Hamhuis would later pick up a 10 minute game misconduct during the game's brawl with 77 seconds to go. He is not in any threat of suspension.
