Canucks' Bieksa Remains Sidelined

News: Coach Willie Desjardins indicated Tuesday that Kevin Bieksa (hand) is at least a week away from a return to action, Jon Abbott of tsnradiovancouver.ca reports.
Analysis: Such a timetable effective rules Kevin Bieksa out for at least the Canucks' next four games and a return to action March 12 against the Kings is hardly a lock for the blueliner, who last suited up Jan. 20.

Canucks' Bieksa Placed On IR

News: Kevin Bieksa (hand) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: With a number of Canucks players banged up following Tuesday's loss to the Ducks, Kevin Bieksa's move to IR will free up a roster spot for a likely AHL call-up. Bieksa underwent surgery on his left hand earlier this week and is expected to be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks.

Canucks' Bieksa Out 6-8 Weeks

News: Kevin Bieksa (hand) is expected to miss 6-8 weeks following left hand surgery, Sportsnet's Dan Murphy reports.
Analysis: Per The Province, Kevin Bieksa -- who absorbed a Victor Hedman shot this past Tuesday -- required surgery to repair several fractures in his broken left hand and will thus miss a significant chunk of time.

Canucks' Bieksa Leaves Tuesday With Wrist Injury

News: Kevin Bieksa left Tuesday's game against the Lightning with a wrist injury and didn't return.
Analysis: Coach Willie Desjardins declined to provide an update on the defenseman's condition after the game. With the Canucks off until next Tuesday due to the All-Star break, Kevin Bieksa will have a fair amount of time to recover from the injury, but he should be viewed as day-to-day until the Canucks provide further word on his condition. He took a minus-2 rating over his 16:18 of ice time before departing.

Canucks' Bieksa (Hand) Will Require Surgery

News: Kevin Bieksa will require surgery on his left hand, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa blocked a shot with the hand in Tuesday's matchup with the Lightning, and it now appears that move will cost him some time, though no official timetable has been released. Look for the Canucks to turn to either Frank Corrado or Luca Sbisa to take his spot on the second defensive pairing, unless Canucks coach Willie Desjardins prefers to maintain his current pairings and instead look to Ryan Stanton or Yannick Weber.

Canucks' Bieksa Has Rare Multi-Point Outing

News: Kevin Bieksa had his first multi-point outing of the season Friday, contributing two assists in a win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The 33-year-old has gone quiet offensively this season, managing just nine points (three goals) in 43 games. While he's contributed with 72 hits, 72 blocked shots, and 63 PIM, we can't help but want more from the former 40-point staple. Averaging 21:24 of ice time, it's possible Kevin Bieksa could reach 20 points, but don't get your hopes up. He's more valuable to the Canucks than he is to fantasy owners searching for defenseman points.

Canucks' Bieksa Hands Out Assist

News: Kevin Bieksa handed out an assist in Tuesday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: The three-time 40-point scorer has embraced more of a stay-at-home role this season for the Canucks, as he's provided just three goals and four assists across 38 games. He brings most of his value these days in specialty formats, as he'll offer stable production in the hits, blocks and PIM categories.

Canucks' Bieksa Contributes At Both Ends Of Ice

News: Kevin Bieksa scored his second goal of the season, dished out two hits, blocked two shots, and was tagged for four PIM in Sunday's loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: A great fantasy outing for Kevin Bieksa, who has struggled offensively this season. Bieksa has just four points in 28 games, putting him on pace for only 10 points, which would be his lowest point total in nine years. While he may contribute in defensive categories, Bieksa's offensive struggles make him only worth a look in deep leagues.

Canucks' Bieksa Says He'll Play Friday

News: Kevin Bieksa (illness) said after morning skate that he was "ready to go" for Friday's game against the Coyotes.
Analysis: The Canucks called up Bobby Sanguinetti on Thursday as insurance on defense in the event Kevin Bieksa couldn't play Friday, but it appears the illness that kept the blueliner out of practice a day earlier wasn't anything serious. He was a full participant in the morning session on his usual pairing with Ryan Stanton, suggesting he'll be on tap for close to his usual average of 21 minutes of ice time.

Canucks' Bieksa (Illness) May Play Friday

News: Kevin Bieksa (illness) took part in Friday's morning skate and coach Willie Desjardins hopes he will be available against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa missed Thursday's practice with an undisclosed illness, but his presence at Friday's morning skate is encouraging regarding his status against the Coyotes on Friday night. More light should be shed on the situation in warmups if not before then.

Canucks' Bieksa Misses Practice

News: Kevin Bieksa missed Thursday's practice with coach Willie Desjardins saying the defenseman "wasn't feeling well" but is expected to play Friday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Desjardins' words would seem to suggest Kevin Bieksa is dealing with an illness, but not one that is significant enough to result in him missing any action. His availability against the Coyotes should be confirmed after taking part in Friday's morning skate session.

Canucks' Bieksa Returns To Action In Win

News: Kevin Bieksa was able to play on Tuesday, picking up a plus-2 rating while logging eight penalty minutes in 20:09 worth of ice time.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa was listed as day-to-day after taking a puck to the eye on Sunday, but was able to return to action on Tuesday. He spent a lot of time in the penalty box, taking a double minor as well as two other minors, though none of those led to Avalanche goals.

Canucks' Bieksa Expected To Play Tuesday

News: Kevin Bieksa (eye) is expected to play in Tuesday's game against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa was struck by a puck in Sunday's game, but it appears he was able to escape without a serious injury. Bieksa has just one point through 12 games, but he has recorded 10 PIM.

Canucks' Bieksa Day-To-Day

News: Kevin Bieksa (eye) is day-to-day.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa took a puck to the eye Sunday against the Predators, but is travelling with the team on their road trip, and could be in the lineup Tuesday against the Avalanche.

Canucks' Bieksa Leaves Early Sunday

News: Kevin Bieksa was removed from Sunday's game against the Predators after taking a puck to the eye, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa prefers to play without a visor during games, and it proved detrimental Sunday. The Canucks haven't issued any word regarding the severity of the ailment just yet, so consider the blueliner questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Avalanche.

Canucks' Bieksa Logs 20:26 In Win

News: Kevin Bieksa (undisclosed) logged 20:26 of ice time in Wednesday's win over Calgary, recording four PIM, two shots on goal, and a plus-2 rating.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa, who was a game-time decision Wednesday, looked good in the win, making some solid defensive plays. He only played 0:11 on the power play, but still found ways to get involved offensively. On nights he doesn't produce point totals, Bieksa will still help your fantasy team by contributing in categories such as PIM, hits, or blocked shots.

Canucks' Bieksa On Ice For Pregame Skate

News: Kevin Bieksa (shoulder) participated in Wednesday's pregame warm-ups, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa seemed optimistic after Wednesday's morning skate, and although he's still a game-time decision, all signs are pointing to the blueliner suiting up against Calgary for the season opener.

Canucks' Bieksa Feeling Good; Still Questionable

News: Kevin Bieksa (shoulder) indicated he "felt good" after Wednesday's morning skate.
Analysis: He still remains a game-time decision for the season opener against the Flames, but the blue liner's words lead us to think that he'll be available. He first hurt his shoulder after throwing a hard check during a preseason game last week.

Canucks' Bieksa A Game-Time Decision For Opener

News: Kevin Bieksa (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's season opener against the Flames, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa was a participant in Tuesday's full practice, but he's still hurting a bit from his run-in with the boards during last week's exhibition game against the Oilers. The veteran wasn't occupying his usual spot next to Dan Hamhuis during practice, instead pairing up with fellow injured blue liner Frank Corrado. The Canucks should have a better idea about his availability after Wednesday's morning skate, but his status could end up coming down to the wire.

Canucks' Bieksa Could Miss Regular-Season Opener

News: Kevin Bieksa (undisclosed) could miss Wednesday's regular-season opener vs. the Flames, Team 1040's Matthew Sekeres reports.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa was not at practice Monday, nursing an undisclosed injury that he presumably suffered at some point in the preseason. The 33-year-old blueliner failed to record a point in three exhibition games, finishing a plus-1, while averaging over 25:00 of ice time. Bieksa, who is expected to be a key asset to the Canucks' defense in 2014-15, is likely to improve on the mere 24 points he achieved in 2013-14.

Canucks' Bieksa (Undisclosed) Out Saturday

News: Kevin Bieksa is nursing an undisclosed injury and will not play in Saturday's preseason finale versus the Oilers.
Analysis: Although coach Willie Desjardins didn't provide much information on the nature of Kevin Bieksa's injury, he said the defenseman is "coming among." It seems likely that the Canucks are keeping Bieksa out for maintenance purposes more than anything, so his status for the team's Oct. 8 season opener wouldn't seem at risk.

Canucks' Bieksa Impresses At Worlds

News: In seven games with Team Canada at the 2014 World Championships, Kevin Bieksa recorded two goals, two assists and a plus-5 rating. He was named one of Team Canada's top three players in the tournament.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa put forth a good individual effort in the tournament, but it wasn't enough, as Team Canada bowed out to Finland in the quarterfinals. The 32-year-old defenseman averaged a team-high 22:25 of ice time at the Worlds, firing 19 shots on goal in the process. The Team Canada captain should be able to build upon this strong performance heading into the upcoming NHL season.

Canucks' Bieksa Continues Strong Play At Worlds

News: Kevin Bieksa netted one of Team Canada's three goals in an overtime win over Sweden at the World Championships on Sunday.
Analysis: Through six games at the Worlds, Kevin Bieksa has recorded two goals, one assist, and a plus-4 rating. Bieksa is averaging a team-high 22:53 of ice time per game, helping Team Canada go 4-1-1 in the preliminary round thus far.

Canucks' Bieksa Helps Canada Defeat Slovakia

News: Kevin Bieksa scored a goal, went plus-3, and logged a team-high 23:51 of ice time in Team Canada's 4-1 win over Slovakia on Saturday at the World Championships.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa is off to a good start at the Worlds, averaging a team-high 23:44 of ice time and sporting a plus-3 rating through two preliminary round games. He has fired six shots on goal, with forward Joel Ward (Capitals) being the only player on the team with more shots (7). It looks like Team Canada made the right move in naming Bieksa captain.

Canucks' Bieksa Will Captain Team Canada

News: Kevin Bieksa has been named Team Canada's captain for the 2014 World Championships in Zurich, the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Quite the honor for the 32-year-old, who is currently an assistant captain with the Canucks. Team Canada coach Dave Tippett said Kevin Bieksa got the nod because he's outgoing, but also plays hard and with passion.
