Vancouver Canucks Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Chaput was summoned from the minors to Vancouver on Monday.
Impact: After contributing nine points in 68 games at the NHL level last season, Chaput will rejoin Vancouver for their massive five-game road trip. The 25-year-old plays a versatile, physical game, and will likely be used as a depth forward.
News: Gadjovich has agreed with Vancouver to a three-year entry level contract, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Impact: After tearing up the OHL in the 2016-17 season notching 74 points in 60 games, Gadjovich has finally cashed in on his strong play in the junior level. The 19-year-old boasts a strong two-way game, but it's unlikely he appears in the Vancouver organization until next season.
News: Sutter missed practice Monday due to illness.
Impact: Considering Loui Eriksson (knee) didn't travel with the team -- combined with Sutter being under the weather -- it shouldn't come as a shock the club is going to promote a player from the minors. The odds-on favorites are likely Reid Boucher or Nikolay Goldobin, although Michael Chaput may be better suited to replace Sutter down the middle if the 28-year-old is unable to play.
News: Edler (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
Impact: With Edler set to miss 4-to-6 weeks, it should come as no surprise to find him on IR. The Canucks will likely use the extra roster spot for a replacement for Loui Eriksson (knee) -- who is expected to miss approximately 10 days. Newly acquired Derrick Pouliot figures to slot into the third pairing while the veteran Edler is sidelined.
News: As expected, Eriksson (knee) did not join the team for its five-game road trip, ruling him out until Oct. 26 at the earliest, Dan Murhpy of Sportsnet reports.
Impact: Eriksson's absence almost certainly means the Canucks will want to call up a player from AHL Utica, especially considering how thin they are at forward with Brendan Gaunce (shoulder) currently on the non-roster injured list. Having lost out on his top-line spot with the Sedin twins, the 32-year-old Eriksson has seen a significant dip in minutes (11:58 of ice time per game) as well as offensive production (one assist). Even once cleared to play, the Swede seems to have fallen off from the 63-point player he was with Boston during the 2015-16 campaign.
