No information available at this time (Updated 5/18/13).
With the Oilers out of playoff contention, rushing Ales Hemsky back into the lineup doesn't make much sense, so don't count on him playing again this season. (Updated 4/22/13).
04/05/2013 01:45 Schneider shut out Oilers; Canucks take back NW lead
Cory Schneider made 23 saves and Henrik Sedin had a goal and an assist for Vancouver in a 4-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night that moved the Canucks past Minnesota for first in the Northwest Division.
Ales Hemsky's best days seem to be well behind him as his inability to stay healthy has prevented him from reaching the lofty heights both the team and he had hoped. He hasn't played more than 70 games since 2008-09 and although he did play 69 games last season, he only scored 10 goals. Hemsky is no longer the focal point of the offense and won't play on the top line or first power-play unit in 2012-13. (Updated 8/14/12)
