Brock Boeser played on Vancouver's top PP unit with the Sedin twins on Sunday.

Boeser didn't score, but he had a couple of decent chances. The rookie also showed a little fatigue, as this was his third game in three nights (one in the NCAA, two in the NHL). "We hardly ever play three games in three days in (college)," Boeser said. "That was the first time in a long time for me. I could definitely feel my legs getting tired out there, toward the end of shifts especially." His fantasy upside may be limited this season, but if his current usage is any indication, he'll have ample opportunity to put up points next season.

Ryan Miller allowed two goals on 32 shots Sunday night, but the Canucks fell 2-1 against Winnipeg.

Miller fell to 18-24-6 this season with a 2.77 goals against average and .915 save percentage. Miller has just one win in his past eight games.
Mar 26 - 11:22 PM

Alexander Edler scored Vancouver's only goal in the Canucks' 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday night.

Edler now has three points in his last four games. The 30-year-old now has five goals and 20 points in 61 games this season. Edler has now matched his point output from last season.
Mar 26 - 11:16 PM

Troy Stecher suffered an upper-body injury in Sunday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Stecher fell into the boards awkwardly after a collision with Jets forward Brandon Tanev. The Canucks have already announced that his night is over. We'll consider him day-to-day for now.
Mar 26 - 9:17 PM

Philip Larsen will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Larsen has suited up in just one of his team's last 11 games, so it's not surprising to see him sit tonight. He has one goals and five assists in 24 games this season. Joseph Cramarossa will miss the game because of a foot injury.
Mar 26 - 7:47 PM

The Vancouver Canucks will probably start Ryan Miller on Sunday.

Miller would be making his third start in the span of four games. He has a 2.79 GAA and .915 save percentage in 48 games this season.
Mar 26 - 4:18 PM

Jack Skille suffered an ankle injury on Saturday.

It appears that Skille's season is over since there are only two weeks left in the season. He has only five goals and nine points in 55 games this season and he may be a bubble player next season in Vancouver.
Mar 26 - 11:08 AM

Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said he wouldn't expect to see Jack Skille "in the lineup for a while."

Skille sustained an undisclosed injury during Saturday's game. There's not much time left in the regular season, so if he's expected to be out for "a while" then it seems reasonable to wonder if he's done for 2016-17.
Mar 25 - 5:45 PM

Richard Bachman saved 25 of 27 shots in a 4-2 win over Minnesota.

Bachman nearly earned a shutout, but the Wild scored a pair of goals within the last three minutes of the third period to spoil that. This was just Bachman's third start with Vancouver this season and he's allowed only five goals in that span.
Mar 25 - 4:49 PM

Reid Boucher scored twice in Vancouver's 4-2 victory against Minnesota on Saturday.

Boucher has six goals and nine points in 31 games this season. Jack Skille also found the back of the net for Vancouver. Bo Horvat assisted on two of the Canucks' four markers.
Mar 25 - 4:44 PM

Brock Boeser scored the game-winning goal in his NHL debut.

Vancouver earned a 4-2 victory against the Minnesota Wild Saturday afternoon. The Canucks announced that they had signed Boeser to an entry-level contract mere hours before the game started. He was selected with the 23rd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, but spent the past two seasons with the University of North Dakota rather than signing sooner. He had 16 goals and 34 points in 32 NCAA games this season.

Jack Skille sustained an undisclosed injury during Saturday's game.

Skille needed to be helped off the ice after being hit into the boards by Charlie Coyle. There aren't many details yet, but the Canucks have said that Skille will not return to the game.
Mar 25 - 4:12 PM

Brock Boeser has inked an entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

Boeser was taken with the 23rd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. He had 16 goals and 34 points in 32 games with the University of North Dakota this season. He'll go right to work for the Canucks as he's expected to make his NHL debut against Minnesota on Saturday.

The Vancouver Canucks have announced that Richard Bachman will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Bachman is with the Canucks because Jacob Markstrom is sidelined, though Ryan Miller has gotten the bulk of the work while Markstrom is out. Bachman has a 1.53 GAA and .955 save percentage in two games with the Canucks this season.
Mar 24 - 3:53 PM

Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 33 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Miller is coming off a 5-4 OT win over Chicago, but he's dropped six of his last seven decisions (1-4-2). The Canucks goalie owns an 18-23-6 record with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage. Miller's play has been a lot better than his numbers suggest, but the fact that he's on a poor team has really put a damper on his fantasy value.
