Canucks' Bieksa Will Play Saturday

News: Kevin Bieksa (leg) will play in Saturday's game against the Ducks, Sportsnet's Dan Murphy reports.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa appeared to hurt his right leg in a collision with Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog in Thursday's loss to the Avalanche, but will suit up for a crucial game on Saturday.

Canucks' Bieksa Shines In Loss

News: Kevin Bieksa collected a power-play assist, fired five shots on goal, and dished out seven hits in Monday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: A solid fantasy outing from Kevin Bieksa, who now has four points -- all on the power play -- in his last seven games. He logged 24:15 of ice time on Monday, as he continues to be a big minute-muncher in Vancouver. Bieksa's a reliable defenseman who contributes in various fantasy categories.

Canucks' Bieksa Ends Scoring Drought Against Stars

News: Kevin Bieksa ended a five-game scoring drought on Thursday, picking up an assist in a 6-1 loss to Dallas.
Analysis: With Thursday's defeat to Dallas, the Canucks have now lost 11 of their last 12 games. "If this isn't rock bottom, I don't know what is," said Kevin Bieksa. Vancouver's offense has gone ice cold, and Bieksa has been no exception, tallying only four points in his last 15 games. In a horrific year for the Canucks, Bieksa has managed to be a decent fantasy contributor, recording four goals and 20 points in 60 games, to go with a plus-1 rating.

Canucks' Bieksa Appears Likely To Play Wednesday

News: Kevin Bieksa (foot) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: Although coach John Tortorella has yet to announce his lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Blues, it seems likely that Kevin Bieksa will be included in it given the transaction. The 32-year-old hasn't played since Jan. 29 after sustaining the foot injury, missing the Canucks' next five games before the Olympic break. In spite of the missed time, Bieksa still ranks second among the team's defensemen with 19 points on the campaign.

Analysis: After taking the day off Monday to rest up, Kevin Bieksa resumed skating a day later as he looks to convince coach John Tortorella he's close to full health. He'll be monitored during Wednesday's morning skate before the Canucks decide whether or not to activate him from IR in advance of that night's game against the Blues.

Kevin Bieksa

Canucks' Bieksa Returns To Practice

News: Kevin Bieksa (foot) was back at practice Thursday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: The defenseman is presumed to be nursing a right-foot fracture suffered in a Jan. 29 contest, but the team hasn't provided much information on the extent of his injury. Kevin Bieksa continues to wear a walking boot, but with increased participation in practices the next few days, he could be ready to play for the Canucks' first game out of the break Wednesday vs. the Blues.

Canucks' Bieksa On IR

News: The Canucks placed Kevin Bieksa (undisclosed) on IR on Monday.

News: Kevin Bieksa (undisclosed) will not travel with the Canucks for their upcoming five-game road trip, Sporstnet's Dan Murphy reports.
Analysis: The Canucks aren't providing much clarity on Kevin Bieksa's situation, but his fantasy owners in are going to want to keep him on the bench for the next week, and possibly beyond. Expect the Canucks to announce a defenseman call-up to take his lineup spot in the coming days.

Canucks' Bieksa Strikes In Overtime

News: Kevin Bieksa scored two goals, including the overtime winner, in Sunday's win over Phoenix.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa was pointless in his last seven games prior to Sunday, but scored his third and fourth goal of the season in a 5-4 win. Bieksa was a big part of the victory, also collecting five shots on goal, while logging 20:23 of ice time. While he has struggled offensively as of late, Bieksa has racked up 47 PIM over his last seven games, making him an ideal player in certain fantasy leagues.

Canucks' Bieksa Solid Against Kings

News: Kevin Bieksa collected 9 PIM, two shots on goal, and five hits in Monday's loss to the Kings.
Analysis: With Alex Edler's return on Monday, Kevin Bieksa logged only 19:20 of ice time, his lowest total since early December. Bieksa may lose some even-strength and power-play time with Edlers' return, but he still remains valuable in fantasy. He has 16 points and 51 PIM in 47 games to go along with a plus-5 rating.

Canucks' Bieksa Strikes Against Anaheim

News: Kevin Bieksa ended a 22-game goal drought in Sunday's overtime loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa also finished the night with 4 PIM, three hits, and a season-high six blocked shots. Though he has gone plus-4 on the season, Bieksa is a minus-6 over his past four games, showing that he is struggling at both ends of the ice lately. He contributes in other fantasy categories, but you can't help wanting more from Bieksa offensively, as he only has 15 points in 44 games this season.

Canucks' Bieksa Back On Scoresheet

News: Kevin Bieksa picked up an assist in a loss to Dallas on Thursday. It was only his second point in 15 games.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa has seen his offensive production cool off dramatically as of late. He remains a valuable fantasy contributor, but he still hasn't scored a goal since November 14. He has 13 points (1G 12A) in 37 games on the year. He is a solid defenseman, as exemplified by his plus-9 rating on the season, but it may be time to lower your hopes in terms of offensive production.

Canucks' Bieksa Ends 12-Game Scoring Drought

News: Kevin Bieksa ended a 12-game scoring drought on Saturday, assisting on a Henrik Sedin power-play marker in a 6-2 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Kevin Bieksa was valuable in other fantasy categories during the slump, but him ending this scoring drought definitely bodes well for his fantasy owners. He continues to see over 22 minutes of ice time per game and should put up points more regularly. He only has 12 points in 35 games this season, but the offensive skill is there for those numbers to increase.

Analysis: Sure he contributes in other fantasy categories, but Kevin Bieksa needs to produce offensively in order to be valuable.
