Report: Canucks, Edler nearing agreement on 3-year extension

Report: Canucks, Edler nearing agreement on 3-year extension The Vancouver Canucks and defenseman Alex Edler are "closing in" on a three-year contract extension, reports Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. The deal is worth between $5 million and $5.5 million annually, according to Sportsnet's Irfaan Gaffar. Edler, 33, has spent his entire 13-year career with the Canucks after the club drafted him in the third round of the 2004 NHL Draft. His new deal does not have a clause that will prevent him from being exposed in the upcoming Seattle expansion draft, Friedman adds. After February's trade deadline, Canucks general manager Jim Benning said Edler was unwilling to waive his no-trade clause amid interest from teams around the league.

His straight-line speed isn't elite, but he's as shifty and agile as they come. His edgework and outstanding set of hands also make him incredibly difficult to defend in tight despite his small stature. Sometimes, it looks like Hoglander has the puck on a string, and he can produce scoring chances out of nothing through the middle of the ice.

Overall, Hoglander carries a lot of the same traits as 10-year NHL veteran Tyler Ennis.

What they're saying

"Hoglander has the best hands in the draft," said The Athletic's Corey Pronman. "When he has the puck on his stick, he’s trying to make a skilled play. His puck handling is lightning quick and he often leaves defenders in a knot with how he dangles while in stride."
