Canucks' Tanner Pearson: Won't play season finale Friday

Pearson (upper body) won't play Friday's season finale in Edmonton, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Pearson will miss his 10th game in a row, finishing the season with 14 goals, 34 points, 159 shots and 84 hits across 16:03 of average ice time in 68 contests. At this point, there's no reason to believe his injury will impact his availability for training camp in September.

Canucks' Tanner Pearson: Could play Friday

Pearson (upper body) might be available for the regular-season finale versus Edmonton on Friday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Based on coach Bruce Boudreau's comments, it seems like Pearson will only get an opportunity to play if a playoff spot is on the line. Regardless, the 29-year-old winger for sure won't play against the Kraken or Kings on Tuesday or Thursday, respectively. While Pearson almost certainly will miss the 40-point threshold, he's still managed to produce decent mid-range fantasy value based on his 14 goals and 20 assists in 68 contests so far.

How Tanner Pearson proved everyone wrong this season and what that means for the Canucks

When Tanner Pearson was inked to an extension just about a year ago today, the overall reaction was far from ecstatic. The deal was for 3 years with an AAV of $3.25 million and contained a slightly different no-trade clause in each year. The contract was dragged by many including here on Canucks Army, Twitter, and on other news outlets across the internet. It was difficult to find anyone who thought the deal was great news for the Canucks.

Canucks' Tanner Pearson: Facing one-week absence

Pearson (upper body) is expected to miss at least a week according to coach Bruce Boudreau, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Prior to his absence, the winger was struggling offensively with just one goal in his last 11 contests while putting 20 shots on net.
