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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
