The Canucks have placed Alexander Edler (upper-body) on IR.
Edler is doubtful for Sunday's game due to an upper-body injury.
Edler was forced to leave Saturday's win in Edmonton with an upper-body injury and is not expected to play in the second-half of their home-and-home on Sunday. With Edler out, look for Tyler Myers and Quinn Hughes to play a lot more on Sunday and for Troy Stecher to see some power-play time.

Edler (upper-body) is expected to play on Monday.
Edler was forced to leave Saturday's game in Washington but was on the ice for Monday's morning skate and is expected to play in Philadelphia. Edler leads the Canucks in ice-time (23:54 ATOI) while posting 15 points (4G / 11A) but has had a hard time staying out of the box (34 PIMS) in 24 games this season.
Edler (upper-body) is questionable to play Monday.
Edler was forced to leave Saturday's game in the first period after sustaining an upper-body injury. Edler's injury is not serious and he is expected to skate before Monday's game to see if he can play in Philadelphia. If he can't play, Oscar Fantenberg will likely replace him in the lineup and Tyler Myers would see PP2 time.

The Canucks have re-signed Alex Edler to a two-year contract worth $12 million ($6.0M AAV).
Edler is coming off of one of the best seasons of his career despite missing 26 games due to injury. Edler scored double-digit goals for the first time since 2011-12 and added 24 assists. That’s a 15-goal, 35-assist (50 points) per 82 game campaign from the 33-year-old, who hasn’t appeared in 82 games since 2012. With the Canucks emerging as a strong offensive team, Edler will carry some fantasy value into 2019-20 but injuries are always a huge concern for the big Swede.
Edler (concussion) will return to the Canucks lineup on Thursday.

Edler is week-to-week with a concussion.
Edler was fortunate not to suffer any facial fractures but is suffering from concussion symptoms. He will miss his fourth straight game on Monday and is expected to miss at least a couple more weeks with a concussion.
Edler (face) was taken to hospital for X-rays after being stretchered off of the ice on Monday.
Edler took an awkward fall, face-first onto the ice in Philadelphia on Monday and will remain in a Philadelphia area hospital while the Canucks travel to Washington. It was a scary fall and will likely result in Edler missing a fair amount of time. Look for Alex Biega to replace Edler in the lineup on Tuesday.

Edler played just 3:10 TOI before leaving Wednesday’s game in Vegas. Edler was hit hard by Golden Knights winger Max Pacioretty and did not return to the ice. Michael Del Zotto will likely replace Edler if he can’t play Thursday in Arizona.

Edler (finger) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

His original timetable was 4-6 weeks and tonight would be exactly the one month mark.
