Maxim Lapierre missed Thursday's practice with a sore groin, but he was out there in his usual role Friday night. The fourth-liner should be safe to deploy going forward if you're using him for penalty minutes or hits. (Updated 1/26/13).
Maxim Lapierre established himself as a consistent fourth-line producer in his first full season with the Canucks last year, averaging 11 minutes of ice time while playing in all 82 games, finishing with 19 points (9 G, 10 A) and a career-high 130 penalty minutes. The 27-year-old center is set to be a grinder for the Canucks once again this season. His point totals wont come into play in many formats, but his newfound talent of racking up high penalty minute totals are worth a look in formats that reward trips to the sin bin. (Updated 8/14/12)
