Canucks defenceman Edler out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury

VANCOUVER - Vancouver Canucks defenceman Alex Edler has been sidelined with an undisclosed injury.

Assistant coach Glen Gulutzan said Thursday that Edler, who played Tuesday in Nashville, is out indefinitely.

Andrew Alberts, who has been used sparingly this season, will replace Edler on Friday night at home against Nashville.

Edler has produced three goals and six assists this season while averaging 23:26 of ice time in 27 games. Coach John Tortorella has criticized him for inconsistent play recently.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
