Adam Clendening has been returned to the AHL.

Clendening has a goal and four points in 21 games with Chicago and Vancouver this season. The Canucks acquired Clendening from the Blackhawks in January in exchange for Gustav Forsling.
Mar 25 - 3:46 PM

Dan Hamhuis registered an assist in a 5-2 victory over Winnipeg Tuesday night.

Hamhuis snapped a six-game point drought. He has no goals and 18 assists in 51 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 25 - 11:39 AM

Alexander Edler recorded an assist in a 5-2 victory against Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Edler is on a three-game point streak and has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five contests. He has seven goals and 22 points in 65 games this season.
Mar 25 - 11:38 AM

Eddie Lack was outstanding again for the Canucks in making 26 saves to backstop the Canucks to a 5-2 win.

Lack allowed the Jets to score the first two goals of the game but shut the door from then on to help fuel the Canucks furious rally in the latter periods. He has six wins in his last eight starts and has shined as the starter since Ryan Miller went down with a long term injury. His numbers continue to improve along with his fantasy value. Lack is 14-10-3 with a 2.42 GAA and .920 save percentage in 33 games played this season.
Mar 25 - 1:09 AM

Radim Vrbata scored twice and added an assist to lead the Canucks to a 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Tuesday.

The goals were number 28 and 29 for the Canucks leading goal scorer. He added seven shots and was a plus-2 in a monster fantasy night. Vrbata is on fire at the right time for the Canucks who are battling for playoff positioning in the tight West. He has eight points (4G,4A) in the last five games and now has 56 points in 70 games in his first season in Vancouver. Henrik Sedin also added three points while brother Daniel had two assists and Chris Higgins recorded two points as well.
Mar 25 - 1:01 AM

Ryan Stanton, Adam Clendening and Brandon McMillan will be scratched against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

Of the three only Stanton has much of any fantasy value, though this will be his sixth straight game in the stands. Stanton has posted 11 points, 33 PIMs, 93 hits, and 106 blocks over 53 games this season.
Mar 24 - 8:21 PM

Eddie Lack will get the start against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

Lack has put together a solid season, going 13-10-3 record with a .920 save percentage and a 2.43 GAA over 32 games and 25 starts this season. Lack has beaten the Jets three times in four career tries with just nine goals against in that time.
Mar 24 - 8:12 PM

Chris Tanev has agreed to a five-year, $22.25 million contract extension.

Tanev was set to become a restricted free agent this summer. He has two goals and 16 points in 60 contests in 2014-15. The Canucks have been leaning heavily on him this season, giving him 21:02 minutes of ice time per game, including an average of 2:46 minutes in shorthanded situations.
Mar 24 - 12:42 PM

Radim Vrbata had two assists in Vancouver's 3-1 win over Arizona Sunday night.

Vrbata has recorded at least a point in three of his last four games. He has 27 goals and 53 points in 69 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 23 - 10:37 AM

Jacob Markstrom stopped 26 of 27 shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

This is Markstrom's first win of the 2014-15 season. The 25-year-old was once regarded as one of the best goaltending prospects in the game when he was with Florida, but his stock has fallen significantly. Markstrom has posted some good numbers in the AHL, but he has struggled to find his game in the NHL. He is still young enough that he can develop into the goaltender many expected him to be, but that doesn't seem likely to happen. Markstrom will probably be returned to the AHL when Ryan Miller (lower-body) is ready to return to action. Markstrom has a 1-1-0 record with a 3.08 goals-against-average and a .879 save percentage in three games this season.
Mar 22 - 11:05 PM

Yannick Weber scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

This is Weber's third two-point effort of the season. The 26-year-old opened the scoring at the 14:23 mark of the first period and he picked up the primary assist on Alex Edler's game-winning goal. Weber now has seven goals and 17 points in 55 games this season. Henrik Sedin scored the empty net goal to ice the game for the Canucks.
Mar 22 - 10:46 PM

Ronalds Kenins was made a late healthy scratch against the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday night.

Kenins has produced three goals and 11 points to go along with 49 hits through his first 21 games of his career.
Mar 22 - 8:05 PM

Brandon McMillan will get the chance to square off against the team that waived him back in February, the Arizona Coyotes

McMillan played in 50 games for Arizona to begin the season, registering three points and 81 points. He'll play in just his seventh game for the Canucks to the right Bo Horvat as part of their fourth line. McMillan has no points and five hits thus far with Vancouver.
Mar 22 - 7:52 PM

Alex Burrows will indeed play against the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday night.

After taking a crushing hit by the Kings' Tyler Toffoli on Saturday night, Burrows is expected to take his place with the Sedin twins Henrik and Daniel on the Canucks' first line. Burrows has 14 goals, 28 points, 49 PIMs and 61 hits through 59 games this season.
Mar 22 - 7:43 PM

Ryan Stanton and Adam Clendening will be scratched against the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday night.

It'll be Stanton's fifth straight game and Clendening's sixth straight in the stands. Stanton has managed to compile 11 points, 33 PIMs, 93 hits, and 106 blocks over 53 games this season. Clendening has just two points and 17 hits through 17 games this season.
