Alex Edler Re-Signs With The Canucks

Defenseman Alex Edler signed to a two-year contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks. The contract extension has an average annual value of $6 million.

The Canucks selected Edler in the third round (91st overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. The Swedish native spent his 13 seasons with the Canucks recording 368 points (94 goals, 274 assists) in 814 games. He ranks first among defenseman in points and power-play points in Canucks franchise history. In the 2018-19 season, he scored 34 points (10 goals, 24 assists) in 56 games.

“Alex is important to our team and has played as the cornerstone of our defence throughout his career,” said Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning. “He’s a leader with tremendous experience, plays important minutes and contributes to every part of our team game…”

Important Stats. What He Contributes.

Edler can contribute anywhere they need him. He will have a role in both power-play and penalty-kill unit in the 2019-20 season.

Yes. The isolated impact graphic/stat is a visual statistic of the impact of the player’s ability on the ice. The chart records when the player is on-ice and how he compares to the league average. The graph gives you a better idea of the player impact beyond goals, assists, points, and penalty minutes. Each chart describes the player’s impact in the 5 vs 5 on offense, 5 vs 5 on defense, power-play, and penalty-kill. Other charts can include 3 vs 3 OT, 4 vs 4, etc.

Below is a link that shows you how to read shot maps. They measure the shots by color. The “Red” color shows the area of the ice where the team produces more shots than the league average. Blue is less than the team average. The link below gives the full description. hockeyviz.com is a great website if you’re looking for in-depth stats.,
