The Vegas Golden Knights have selected Luca Sbisa from the Vancouver Canucks in the expansion draft.

Sbisa had two goals and 13 points in 82 games in 2016-17 while averaging 18:59 minutes per game. He comes with a $3.6 million annual cap hit, which isn't great for him, but it's only for one more season before he'll become an unrestricted free agent, so the Golden Knights don't have any long-term concerns there.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Luca Sbisa left Saturday's 4-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks with what the team terms a "stomach flu" and did not return.

Any Canucks player with even mild symptoms of an illness raise an alarm considering the mumps outbreak hitting this team. Obviously the team didn't confirm anything with Sbisa here, but we'll have to see. For what it's worth, the team is denying it is the mumps, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji.

Luca Sbisa registered two assists in the Canucks' 7-2 loss to the New York Rangers Tuesday night.

Luca Sbisa (hand) had five hits in his return to the Canucks' lineup on Sunday.

Sbisa also logged 19:33 minutes of ice time to help Vancouver earn a 2-1 shootout victory over the New York Islanders. It was his first game since Dec. 1. "That was definitely a battle," said Sbisa. "But it’s good to have one like this the first game back and have everything you could ask for. The shots were lopsided (48-26) but we battled and I felt better as the game wore on. The first two (periods), I was gassed. A lot of it had to do with a little anxiety in the first game back. You waste a lot of energy because you’re so excited."

Confirming an earlier report, Luca Sbisa will indeed return to Vancouver's blue line on Sunday against the Islanders.

Sbisa has missed the last 19 games with a hand injury, and will be a happy addition to the back end of their D-corps. Through 18 games this season, he's posted four points, 17 PIMs, 28 hits, and 31 hits.

Luca Sbisa (hand) is expected to return to action Sunday.

He has missed the last 19 games with the hand injury. When Sbisa was injured at the start of December it was thought that the injury was short term. It was not. Sbisa had a goal and four points in 18 games before the injury. He has no real fantasy value. He is on the injured reserved list and there will have to be another move made when he is activated.

Luca Sbisa (hand) skated before practice Saturday, but he didn't use a stick.

That probably means that he isn't close to returning from a hand injury. Sbisa hasn't played since Dec. 1 because of what was initially believed to be a short-term injury.

Luca Sbisa missed his second consecutive game with a hand injury Saturday.

Sbisa is not a great fantasy player as he has only a goal and four points in 18 games. Consider him day-to-day at this time.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 10:36:00 AM

The Vancouver Canucks consider Luca Sbisa's hand injury to be short-term.

It's not clear when Sbisa might be available, but the best bet would probably be to consider him day-to-day. He has a goal and three assists in 18 games in 2015-16.

Luca Sbisa (hand) is not in Vancouver's lineup for Thursday's game against Dallas.

He blocked a shot with his hand at some point and was unable to play in this game. He's considered day-to-day at this point.
