Ryan Stanton is averaging just 15:15 minutes per game in 2014-15.

Stanton has been getting the least responsibility among the Canucks' defensemen so far this season. He had 16 points in 2013-14, but he probably won't come close to matching that mark this season. He has three assists in 23 contests so far.

Jannik Hansen didn't end up playing on Monday night.

The Canucks decided that further medical examination was require even though nothing came up during his previous tests. "In the process of reviewing Hansen's test results the Vancouver Canucks in consultation with specialists have determined that further evaluation is required before he is cleared to play," the team announced in a statement. "Despite all tests being reported as normal, additional tests were ordered in the best interests of Hansen's health and safety." He skated on Monday morning after he collapsed on the bench Saturday following a big hit.

Nick Bonino had an assist in a 7-1 win against Arizona.

Bonino got off to a great start this season, but he's slowed down with just two points in nine December games. He now has eight goals and 21 points in 33 contests.
Dec 23 - 9:43 AM

Kevin Bieksa scored a goal in Vancouver's 7-1 victory on Monday.

Bieksa has three goals and six points in 33 games this season. That's a far cry from his 44-point campaign in 2011-2012, but we wouldn't bet on him bouncing back offensively.
Dec 23 - 9:41 AM

Henrik Sedin netted two assists in Vancouver's 7-1 win over Arizona on Monday night.

The two point effort was his 163rd career such game. Nine more than brother Daniel. Henrik has six goals and 23 assists for 29 points in 33 games so far this season, but what's concerning is that he's only taken 35 shots. That's fewer than guys like Derek Dorsett, Jannik Hansen, and Yannik Weber.

Daniel Sedin scored a goal and an assist in Vancouver's 7-1 win over Arizona on Monday night.

Daniel's goal was an easy one as he slammed home a rebound to make it 3-0 late in the first. The two point effort was his 154th career such game. However he still trails brother Henrik by nine in that category. Daniel has eight goals and a team high 30 point so far this season.

Brad Richardson scored a goal and a power play assist in Vancouver's 7-1 win over Arizona on Monday night.

Richardson intercepted Arizona's Shane Doan's pass to Chris Summers by the Canucks blue line and raced down the right side to rip a wrister past Mike Smith just 1:41 into the second period. The goal made it 4-0 Vancouver and knocked Smith out of the game. Richardson now has eight goals and 17 points this season.
Dec 23 - 1:53 AM

Alex Burrows scored twice as the Canucks took care of the Coyotes 7-1 on Monday.

They were two of the odder and luckier goals you'll ever see, but they count just as much as a snipe from the dots. Fun fact, Burrows scored the first goal on both Mike Smith and Devan Dubnyk in this game. The latter was on the power play as well. He now has eight goals and 15 points on the season.

Despite winning 7-1, it wasn't an easy night for Miller who stopped all but one of the 39 shots Arizona sent his way on Monday night.

The Coyotes beat Miller on their fifth power play shot during their only opportunity. Miller over-played a cross-ice pass leaving the glove-side wide open for Oliver Ekman-Larsson. Other than that, he was on point all night long.
Dec 23 - 1:41 AM

Tom Sestito played for the first time since November 2nd on Monday night against Arizona, he took seven penalty minutes in 9:39 of ice time.

Sestito had his first fight of the season, and it was against Kyle Chipchura of all people. Sestito also took a slashing minor in the final minute of the game to go along with three hits. If you're in a league that rewards his talents, keep an eye on him to see if he isn't a regular in the lineup.
Dec 23 - 1:36 AM

Ryan Miller will start for the Canucks Monday night against Arizona.

Miller will start his second consecutive game where he will look for his 18th win of the season. In 24 games played in the 2014-2015 season, the first year Canuck has a sub-par 2.65 goals-against-average and .901 save percentage.
Dec 22 - 6:53 PM

Jannik Hansen will be back in the lineup on Monday.

He collapsed on the bench after taking a big hit on Saturday. He stayed off the ice for practice, but it's expected that he'll play against Arizona. Hansen has eight goals and 13 points in 32 games.
Dec 22 - 3:45 PM

Jannik Hansen has been cleared from the hospital and may play Monday against the Coyotes.

Coach Desjardins said that Hansen seemed to lose his breath more than anything else to cause his collapse on the bench Saturday.

Jannik Hansen is not on the ice for Canucks' practice on Sunday.

Hansen collapsed on the bench after taking a hit in Saturday's game. It was a scary incident, but all signs point to Hansen being fine. Still, the injury has forced him to miss at least one practice. The 28-year-old has eight goals and 13 points in 32 games. There is no timetable for his return.
Dec 21 - 2:18 PM

Zack Kassian was on the ice for the Canucks' practice on Sunday.

Kassian has been out since November 28th with the finger injury. The 23-year-old has two goals, five points and 26 penalty minutes in 17 games this season.
