  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Two goals, including game-winner

    Joshua scored a pair of goals in Sunday's 3-2 win over Anaheim.

    Joshua extended Vancouver's lead to 2-0 on a power play midway through the second period, beating Lukas Dostal with a nifty between-the-legs shot for his first goal on the man advantage this year. The 27-year-old winger added the game-winner with 2:13 left in the third, burying a net-front feed from Conor Garland to put the Canucks ahead 3-2.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Expected to return Thursday

    Joshua (upper body) will be activated off long-term injured reserve and play Thursday versus Dallas, according to Jeff Paterson of CanucksArmy.com.

    Joshua has 13 goals, 26 points, 46 PIM and 195 hits in 53 contests this season. He was last in the lineup Feb. 13. The 27-year-old is projected to serve on the second line alongside J.T. Miller and Brock Boeser in his return, but Joshua might not be deployed on the power play.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Might be ready Thursday

    Joshua (upper body) could be an option versus Dallas on Thursday, telling reporters, "Yeah, possibly. I'm not sure yet. We'll talk about it and see how the morning goes," per Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650.

    At this point, Joshua should probably be considered a game-time decision heading into Thursday's tilt, though the fact that he skated in a second-line role Wednesday serves as a strong indication he's nearing a return. If he does suit up against the Stars, it would be the 27-year-old winger's first appearance since Feb. 13 versus Chicago, a game in which he racked up three points.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Back at practice

    Joshua (upper body) practiced in a non-contact jersey Sunday.

    Joshua is on long-term injured reserve and hasn't played since Feb. 13. He'll likely need a few practice sessions before returning to the lineup, but he appears to be getting close. The 27-year-old has 13 goals and 26 points through 53 games this season.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Shifts to LTIR

    Joshua (upper body) was moved to long-term injured reserve Tuesday.

    Joshua has already missed more than the 10 games and 24 days of action required to qualify to return from LTIR, so this move won't change his return timetable. The 27-year-old winger has picked up 13 goals, 26 points and a whopping 195 hits through 53 contests this season.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Not close to returning

    Joshua (upper body) is expected to miss another 10-14 days, according to Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 on Friday.

    Joshua hasn't been in the lineup since Feb. 13. He has 13 goals, 26 points, 46 PIM and 195 hits in 53 outings in 2023-24. When Joshua returns, he'll likely serve in a bottom-six capacity.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: On injured reserve

    Joshua (upper body) was put on injured reserve Wednesday.

    The move can be retroactive to Feb. 13, in which case Joshua would be eligible to be activated whenever he's healthy. That said, Vancouver likely wouldn't have put him on IR unless he was expected to miss at least one more game, so Joshua shouldn't be counted on to return Thursday versus Seattle. He has 13 goals, 26 points, 46 PIM and 191 hits in 53 outings in 2023-24.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Missing more time

    Joshua (upper body) is considered week-to-week, Jeff Paterson of CanucksArmy.com reports.

    Joshua was already ruled out for Saturday's game against Winnipeg but it sounds like he'll be absent for at least a few more. The 27-year-old has 13 goals and 26 points through 53 contests. The team should have an update on his status when there's a more clear outlook on his timeline.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Out for another game

    Joshua (upper body) is unlikely to play Saturday versus the Jets, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Undergoing evaluation

    Joshua is being evaluated for an undisclosed injury and won't be available for Thursday's game against Detroit, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Check back for another update on Joshua, who's racked up 26 points and 183 hits through 53 contests this season, ahead of Saturday's game versus Winnipeg.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Makes impact in variety of ways

    Joshua scored a goal on two shots, added two assists, went plus-2, logged four hits and added a fighting major in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    Joshua left an imprint all over this game, doing work both with offense and with his signature physicality. The 27-year-old snapped a seven-game point drought with the three-point effort, and he also logged his first fight since Dec. 7. He's been a strong fit on the third line this season, racking up a career-best 13 goals and 26 points while adding 69 shots on net, 174 hits, 46 PIM and a plus-16 rating through 53 appearances.
