Canucks Retain Weber

News: Yannick Weber signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract Wednesday to remain with the Canucks, the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber recorded 11 goals and 21 points in 65 games for the Canucks this past season. He should continue to remain on the fantasy radar in his return to Vancouver, on the heels of recording a career-high five power play goals for the team in 2014-15.

Canucks Don't Give Qualifying Offer To Weber

News: Yannick Weber wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Canucks on Monday and will become an unrestricted free agent, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: The Canucks are still interested in re-signing Yannick Weber, but didn't want to have to go through salary arbitration in order to retain his services. Instead, they'll try to bring back Weber on a more club-friendly deal, though several other teams are sure to inquire on the defenseman as well. Weber tallied 11 goals and 10 assists in 65 games in 2014-15, doubling up his point total from a season earlier.

Weber Pots Two For Canucks

News: Yannick Weber buried his 10th and 11th goals of the season on second-period power plays Thursday in a 5-0 romp against Arizona.
Analysis: The big night broke up a six-game pointless skid for Yannick Weber, who's not generally known as an offensive player, but has been contributing points in fits and starts for the Canucks this year. He's now reached double-digit goals for the first time and is sitting on a career-high 21 points.

Canucks' Weber Scores For Third Straight Game

News: Yannick Weber scored for the third straight game Thursday, potting the lone Canucks' goal in a loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: It was the second straight game Yannick Weber had scored a power-play goal, giving him three power-play tallies on the season. He's taking on an increased role with the Canucks, as indicated by his 22:09 of ice time Thursday. Playing on the top power-play unit, the 26-year-old has now recorded a power-play point in four straight games and is up to 19 points in 57 games on the season. Lining up with Dan Hamhuis on Vancouver's second defense pairing, Weber is being counted on heavily by the Canucks right now and is worth snatching up in some deeper leagues.

Canucks' Weber Collects Two Assists

News: Yannick Weber dished out a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- and recorded six hits in 18:12 of ice time in Sunday's win over Arizona.
Analysis: Yannick Weber's been playing well of late, racking up three points in his last two games and sporting a plus-6 rating over his last five outings. The 26-year-old is up to 17 points in 55 games and is seeing power-play time, so if you're looking for a decent point-producing defenseman in a very deep league, Weber could be worth scooping up.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber In Line To Play Saturday

News: Yannick Weber (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber missed the last two games with the upper-body ailment, but looks to be good to go after getting in a full practice Thursday. He's expected to skate next to Dan Hamhuis on the third pairing during Saturday's game.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber Likely To Sit Thursday

News: Yannick Weber (undisclosed) is likely to sit out Thursday's game against the Kings, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber didn't skate as part of a regular blue line pairing during Thursday's morning skate, so it appears he'll miss his second straight game with the injury. The Canucks are still listing Weber as day-to-day, with his next chance to play coming Saturday against the Maple Leafs.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber Practices Wednesday

News: Yannick Weber (undisclosed) took part in Wednesday's full practice, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: The injury forced Yannick Weber to sit out Monday's game against the Ducks, but his return to the ice Wednesday suggests a long-term absence isn't in the cards. That being said, the Canucks could opt to sit Weber for another game or two, so it's far from guaranteed that he'll be back in the lineup Thursday versus the Kings.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber Likely To Return Soon

News: Yannick Weber's injury is not a long-term issue according to coach Willie Desjardins.
Analysis: Yannick Weber was forced out of Saturday's game against the Sharks after suffering an injury, and while there is still no news on the exact nature of his ailment, it doesn't appear that it will hold him out too long. His status has not been confirmed for Monday's game against the Ducks, but his next chance to return to the lineup will be Thursday against the Kings if he's unable to go.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber (Undisclosed) Out Monday

News: Yannick Weber (undisclosed) won't play Monday against the Ducks, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber's injury isn't considered serious, but it will cost him at least Monday's game in addition to the portion of Sunday's contest. Chris Tanev has returned from injury, and will likely slot into the lineup Monday in his place. Weber's next chance to return will come Thursday against the Kings.

Canucks' Weber Exits With Injury

News: Yannick Weber exited Saturday's game against the Sharks with an apparent injury.
Analysis: It's not immediately clear what type of setback Yannick Weber is dealing with, but expect an update on his status as more details become available.

Canucks' Weber Contributes Offensively In Win

News: Yannick Weber scored his sixth goal of the season, had an assist and recorded a plus-3 rating in a season-high 22:58 of ice time in Sunday's win over the Blues.
Analysis: Yannick Weber is logging some big minutes right now and has compiled two goals and 11 shots on goal in his last four games. With injuries to Kevin Bieksa and Alex Edler, Weber is taking on an expanded role with the team. Given his offensive potential and the fact he is playing on the top power-play unit, Weber could be worth adding in some deeper leagues right now.

Canucks' Weber Scores ENG In Win

News: Yannick Weber scored an empty-net goal in Sunday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: It was the first point in seven games for Yannick Weber, who now has five goals and 12 points in 44 games on the season. The 26-year-old has been logging some heavy minutes of late, so if he can get into a groove, he's shown enough in the past to warrant a look in some very deep leagues.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber Scores In Win

News: Yannick Weber scored a power-play goal and registered two PIM in Friday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Yannick Weber is now averaging just over one minute of power-play ice time per game this season, an encouraging development for those who play in leagues that award bonuses for points on the man advantage. Unfortunately, Weber averages just over 15 minutes of ice time per game, which limits his fantasy upside as a whole. However, if he can continue to contribute offensively, especially on the power play, it's quite possible Weber may begin to see his even-strength scoring opportunities increase.

Canucks' Weber Stands Out In Loss

News: Yannick Weber scored his third goal of the season, dished out two hits, blocked three shots, and picked up two PIM in Sunday's loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: A solid fantasy night for Yannick Weber, who now has nine points in 29 games, to go with a plus-4 rating. The 26-year-old has offensive potential, but is only averaging 15:42 of ice time, limiting his fantasy value. He could notch 20 points this season, though, making him worthy of a look in some very deep leagues.

Canucks' Weber Picks Up Assist Sunday

News: Yannick Weber collected an assist for the second straight game in Sunday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: With Dan Hamhuis (lower body) out until at least Christmas, the Canucks are looking for Yannick Weber to step up on the blueline. The 26-year-old has delivered of late, collecting a goal, three assists, and a plus-3 rating over his last six games. While he won't post monstrous offensive totals, Weber is an offensive defenseman who can put up 20-30 points, with the bulk of those coming on the power play.

Canucks' Weber Scores Game Winner

News: Yannick Weber potted his first goal of the year and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Oilers. He also fired four shots on goal, matching his season high.
Analysis: Yannick Weber picked a great time to find twine for the first time this season, blasting home the game winner with 9:28 remaining in the game. He only has four points in 14 games but would certainly garner further fantasy consideration if he can find a way to chip in from the back end more often.

Yannick Weber

Canucks Re-Sign Weber

News: Yannick Weber re-signed with the Canucks on Friday.
Analysis: Yannick Weber had an eventful season in 2013-14, scoring six goals and adding four assists in 49 games for the Canucks while also representing Switzerland in the 2014 Winter Olympics. He'll be in the mix for work on the Canucks' second or third defensive pairing during the upcoming campaign.

Canucks' Weber Will Play Monday

News: Yannick Weber (undisclosed) will be in the lineup Monday against the Ducks, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber missed just one game before returning to the ice for practice Sunday. He'll replace rookie Frank Corrado in the lineup.

Canucks' Weber Takes The Ice Sunday

News: Yannick Weber (unspecified issue) returned to the ice Sunday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber, who has nine points in 45 games to date, sat out Saturday's win over the Kings, but his presence on the ice Sunday suggests that he has a shot to return to the Canucks' lineup as soon as Monday against the Ducks.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber Likely Out Saturday

News: Yannick Weber was not at Saturday's morning skate and will likely be replaced in the lineup by call-up Frank Corrado for Saturday's game against the Kings, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber, who has been playing on the third defensive pairing, is likely dealing with an injury. He's been logging about 15-16 minutes of ice time over the last two weeks, but he's still averaging just 11:21 for the season.

Canucks' Weber Tallies Fifth Goal Of Season

News: Yannick Weber potted his fifth goal of the season -- a power-play tally -- in Thursday's overtime loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: Though he scored the game's opening goal, Yannick Weber was minus-2 on Thursday, exemplifying the struggles he continues to go through defensively. Weber has now scored twice in his last three games while averaging 16:26 of ice time in that span. He only has nine points in 43 games this season, but logged 3:24 of power-play time on Thursday, a sign that things could be trending upward. Still, he has never posted more than 18 points in a season and is currently on the third defensive pairing in Vancouver.

Canucks' Weber Nets Game-Winner Against Sabres

News: Yannick Weber netted the game-wining goal in Sunday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: It was a solid outing for Yannick Weber, who also finished with five shots on goal and a plus-2 rating. Weber now has three points in his last eight games, but has only tallied four goals and eight points in 41 games on the season. Don't expect much offense from the 25-year-old, who averages only 10:43 of ice time per game.

Yannick Weber

Weber's GWG Sparks Vancouver

News: Yannick Weber scored the game-winning goal in the third period of Saturday's game against Calgary.
Analysis: Offensive production emphatically is not the norm for this stay-at-home defenseman, who has just three goals and three assists in 34 appearances this season.

Canucks' Weber Held Scoreless For Swiss In Sochi

News: Yannick Weber failed to register a point in his four games for Switzerland during the Olympics.
Analysis: With just three goals in their four Olympic contests, Yannick Weber was hardly the only Swiss skater that didn't leave much of an imprint in Sochi. Most importantly, Weber showed he was healthy after missing some time with an undisclosed injury leading up to the break. He should resume practicing with the Canucks on Saturday.
