News: Sbisa collected a secondary assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.
Impact: Sbisa will show up on the scoresheet close to once every six games on average, and he remains a depth defenseman for the Canucks.
Rotowire: Feb 12 / 7:12a ET
News: Sbisa gathered two assists over 18:09 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Blackhawks.
Impact: It's the first multi-point game of the year for Sbisa, who has only three goals and four helpers across 47 games. The absences of Kevin Bieksa (hand) and Frank Corrado (illness) have Sbisa's minutes on the rise, but he's unlikely to provide a dramatic uptick in scoring as a result of the increased ice time.
Rotowire: Feb 3 / 11:53p ET
News: Sbisa made Tuesday's overtime session last just 36 seconds, putting the game-winner past Ondrej Pavelec for his third goal of the year.
Impact: There aren't many unlikelier heroes, as the 25-year-old blueliner skated just over 15 minutes in the game and hadn't recorded a point since Nov. 28, with his last goal having come more than three months ago on the first day of November.
