Canucks' Sbisa Sees Plus/Minus Take A Hit

News: Luca Sbisa went minus-4 over his 17:21 of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Yikes -- that puts Luca Sbisa at minus-8 over just his last four games, all of which have been losses for the Canucks. It probably has more to do with bad luck than any shortcomings he's shown defensively, but it certainly won't help his chances of becoming an attractive fantasy option from the blue line.

Canucks' Sbisa Struggles Defensively In Loss

News: Luca Sbisa dished out three hits in 18:10 of ice time in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Analysis: It wasn't the best outing for Luca Sbisa, who collected a minus-2 rating in the loss. With Dan Hamhuis (lower body) out until after Christmas, Sbisa has seen increased ice time and is expected to take on a larger role on the blueline. After going pointless in his first seven games, Sbisa has since recorded two goals and four points in his last 12 games. He's a depth defenseman that could get notch around 20 points this season.

Canucks' Sbisa Deemed Healthy

News: Luca Sbisa was cleared to return to the lineup in advance of Wednesday's victory over the Oilers, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: It appears coach Willie Desjardins simply chose to make Luca Sbisa a healthy scratch for the game, a move that paid off when his replacement, Yannick Weber, produced two points in the victory. Sbisa enjoyed a regular role for the Canucks prior to missing the previous three games with an undisclosed injury, but Weber's successes could force Sbisa to the press box with greater frequency.

Canucks' Sbisa Practices

News: Luca Sbisa (undisclosed) practiced with the team Monday morning, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: It appears the team's five days of rest have been good for Luca Sbisa, as he looks probable to return to the lineup Wednesday against the Oilers. The blueliner has two goals and an assist in 14 games to date.

Canucks' Sbisa Likely Out Friday

News: Luca Sbisa (undisclosed) didn't take part in Friday's morning skate and figures to miss his third straight game.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa hasn't resumed practicing since suffering the unknown injury last Saturday against the Kings, but there's a possibility he might be able to make his return in the team's very next game. With the Canucks off the schedule until Nov. 19, Sbisa will have five days to draw closer to full health and convince the team's medical staff that he's ready to play.

Canucks' Sbisa Ruled Out Tuesday

News: Luca Sbisa (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Senators, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: None of the Canucks' five injured skaters felt well enough to take part in the team's morning skate, so coach Willie Desjardins will stick with the same lineup he used Sunday against the Ducks. With Luca Sbisa unavailable, Yannick Weber is expected to join Dan Hamhuis once again on the team's third pairing.

Canucks' Sbisa (Undisclosed) Out Sunday

News: Luca Sbisa will miss Sunday's game due to an undisclosed injury, Eric Stephens of the OC Register reports.
Analysis: The nature of Luca Sbisa's condition is unknown, but he'll miss his first game of the season after playing more than 18 minutes Saturday. Consider him day-to-day going forward.

Sbisa Starting To Produce In Vancouver

News: Luca Sbisa scored his second goal of the season in Saturday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa now has three points (two goals) in his last four games, recording a plus-2 rating in that span. He's on Vancouver's third defensive pairing, though, averaging only 16:32 of ice time per game. Given the fact he doesn't play on the power play, don't expect Sbisa to keep producing at this recent pace. He will likely end up with around 20 points in 2014-15.

Sbisa Scores First Goal With Canucks

News: Luca Sbisa scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's win over Washington.
Analysis: It was also the first point of the season for Luca Sbisa, and quite the bounce back for the young blueliner after he took a minus-5 rating in Friday's loss to the Avalanche. Considering he is on the team's third defensive pairing and seeing no power-play time, don't count expect Sbisa to produce much offense in his first season with Vancouver.

Ducks Trade Sbisa To Canucks

News: The Ducks have traded Luca Sbisa, Nick Bonino, and the 24th pick in Friday's draft to the Canucks in exchange for Ryan Kesler, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
Analysis: Injuries plagued Luca Sbisa's 2013-14 campaign and limited him to 30 games -- his lowest total since the 2009-10 season. However, he is a former first-rounder and is just 24 years old, so he still has some upside. He will have a good shot at earning a top-six defenseman role with his new squad.

Ducks' Sbisa Returns From Injury

News: Luca Sbisa (upper body) returned to the ice Sunday against the Avalanche. He saw 17:21 of ice time following his two-game stint in the press box.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa proved active on both sides of the ice on his return, attempting three shots on offense while blocking three shots defensively. While Sbisa is seemingly healthy, the Ducks boast a good deal of depth on the blue line, making him something of a risk to be scratched on occasion during the postseason.

Ducks' Sbisa Sits Wednesday With Injury

News: Luca Sbisa missed Wednesday's game against the Sharks with an upper-body injury, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa's absence was lessened by the return of top blueliner Cam Fowler, who had missed the last three weeks of action with a leg injury. With the Ducks close to full strength on defense now, it might have been difficult for Sbisa to find regular ice time, even if he weren't dealing with the injury.

Sbisa Scores In Ducks' Win

News: Luca Sbisa scored the opening goal during the first period of a 5-1 victory over the Canucks on Saturday.
Analysis: Saturday's goal ends an eight-game-long pointless streak for Luca Sbisa and is his first goal of the season.

Ducks' Sbisa No Longer Plagued By Knee Issue

News: Luca Sbisa (knee) is expected to be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Flames, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Coach Bruce Boudreau said Luca Sbisa and Mathieu Perreault (forearm) are both ready to return to action, but there's only room in the lineup for one player Wednesday. Although the report anticipates Perreault will enter the lineup Tuesday, Sbisa's fantasy owners can probably consider the blueliner healthy at this point.

Ducks' Sbisa Resumes Skating

News: Luca Sbisa (knee) was on the ice for morning skate Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa won't play in Monday's game vs. the Maple Leafs, but his presence on the ice bodes well for his chances of joining the Ducks on their upcoming three-game road trip. He first suffered the knee injury in Friday's loss to the Penguins.

Ducks' Sbisa Won't Play On Monday

News: Luca Sbisa (knee) won't play Monday against the Maple Leafs, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa is dealing with a left knee injury that he sustained Friday against the Penguins. With two assists in 17 games to date to go along with a minus-7 rating, Sbisa's fantasy impact thus far has been limited to the 35 PIM he has recorded in that span.

Ducks' Sbisa Leaves Friday With Lower-Body Injury

News: Luca Sbisa did not return to the bench for the second period of Friday's game due to a lower-body injury and is doubtful to return.
Analysis: No other details were given with regard to the injury, but not returning to the ice doesn't sound too promising. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect the Ducks to update his condition over the weekend.

Ducks' Sbisa Returning Tuesday

News: Luca Sbisa (hand) will play Tuesday against the Wild, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa has been out for more than two months with the torn tendon in his right hand, but he'll step back onto the ice Tuesday to face Minnesota. While the 23-year-old put up 25 penalty minutes in nine games prior to the injury, he really didn't help fantasy owners anywhere else, with just one assist and a minus-5 rating.

Ducks' Sbisa Could Play Tuesday

News: Luca Sbisa (hand) practiced Monday, and could be in the lineup Tuesday against the Wild, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Luca Sbisa hasn't played since November, and has only managed one assist in nine games during his injury riddled season. It would be wise to avoid him in fantasy leagues until he proves he can stay healthy.

Ducks' Sbisa In Need Of More Practice Time

News: Coach Bruce Boudreau said Luca Sbisa (hand) needs a few more "good practices" before returning to action.
Analysis: In other words, he won't be used Tuesday against the Jets, and his status for Thursday's game against the Kings would also appear to be in doubt. Hand and ankle injuries have limited Luca Sbisa to just nine games with the Ducks this season.

Ducks' Sbisa Rejoins Team

News: Luca Sbisa (hand) has rejoined the Ducks after completing a conditioning assignment at AHL Norfolk over the weekend.
Analysis: With Luca Sbisa holding up well during his rehab assignment, it was seem as though he'll be available to play Tuesday against the Jets if coach Bruce Boudreau chooses to use him. Because Sbisa is still technically on injured reserve, the team will need to make a roster move to facilitate his return.

Ducks' Sbisa To AHL For Conditioning

News: Luca Sbisa (hand) was loaned to AHL Norfolk on Friday for a conditioning assignment, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Surgery to repair a torn tendon in Luca Sbisa's right hand has kept the 23-year-old out of action for nearly two months, but he appears to be nearing a return. He'll likely need a few games to get his legs under him, but Sbisa could be up at some point next week.

Ducks' Sbisa Could Return Next Week

News: Coach Bruce Boudreau said Luca Sbisa (hand) could return from injured reserve next week, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Now almost eight weeks removed from suffering a torn tendon in his hand, Luca Sbisa seems to have incorporated further activities into his rehab regimen. The defenseman had one point and a minus-5 rating in nine games before suffering the injury and may not have a regular lineup spot of his own upon returning.

Luca Sbisa

Ducks' Sbisa Out 6-8 Weeks With Hand Injury

News: Luca Sbisa will miss the next six-to-eight weeks after suffering a torn tendon in his right hand in Friday's game, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The Ducks' blue line depth was already being tested after Francois Beauchemin suffered an injury and landed on IR earlier this week, and now Luca Sbisa will be ticketed for the same fate. Sbisa wasn't one of the Ducks' more productive blueliners, but having to replace him in the lineup with a minor leaguer still weakens the team's overall defensive effort.

Sbisa Gets Assist In Return To Ducks

News: Luca Sbisa merited an assist in the first period of a 2-1 win over the Rangers on Monday.
Analysis: The fact that he was able to log an assist in his first game back, has to be a good sign for the state of his recovery from his recent ankle injury.
