Edler (upper-body) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

Edler has missed the last eight games with an upper-body injury, but it looks like he will play tonight. According to the Canucks website, he has been activated from IR. He skated with Yannick Weber in the morning skate, so expect that to be the case tonight in Arizona. He has 17 points (5G / 12A) in 55 games this season.

Edler (lower-body) will not be in the lineup on Monday.

Edler will not be in the lineup against the Wild tonight because of a lower-body injury that he suffered on Saturday in Calgary. With Edler out, Yannick Weber will be back in the lineup and Adam Clendening will man the point on the Canucks top power-play unit. Consider Edler day-to-day until the Canucks release more information.

Edler left Tuesday's preseason game and will not return after being hit in the face by a puck in the first period.

Barring any concussion issues, Edler is likely being held out for precautionary reasons. He is coming off of the worst season of his career, so I am sure he wanted to start the year off on a better note, but expect him to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Edler (knee) took part in the Canucks game-day skate.

Edler has been out since December 3, but his presence at the morning skate suggests that he could return this evening. However it seems very unlikely that he will play tonight, Edler appears to be getting close to returning to the blueline. He has had a bad year posting three goals and six assists with a minus-12 rating in 27 games.
