Ilya Mikheyev News
Vancouver Canucks winger Ilya Mikheyev (lower body) will play Thursday against the Golden Knights. He left Tuesday's 3-1 win over Anaheim with a lower-body injury, but luckily, it wasn't a serious issue for Mikheyev. The Russian forward had an assist on Tuesday and has compiled 12 points (seven goals, five assists) in 19 games in 2023-24. He missed time at the beginning of the campaign due to offseason knee surgery. Mikheyev had a strong start to the season, but he's registered only four points across his last 10 appearances.
Vancouver Canucks forward Ilya Mikheyev tallied a pair of goals on Thursday as the Canucks knocked off the hosting Ottawa Senators by a 5-2 count. The speedy winger added to the club's hot start by making it a 2-0 game just three minutes into the contest before notching his second of the game 9:23 into the third period. It's been a hot start for Mikheyev who has notched five goals and eight points on 24 shots in nine contests in his return from an ACL injury suffered last season. Even with the hot start, Mikheyev is a middling fantasy asset. He doesn't shoot the puck a ton and he also doesn't skate on the Canucks' top power-play unit. However, he is certainly worth keeping an eye on as long he is skating to the left of superstar Elias Pettersson at even strength.
Vancouver Canucks forward Ilya Mikheyev (knee) is set to make his season debut Saturday night for a road matchup against the Florida Panthers. The Russian speedster hasn't placed since Jan. 27 of last season as he would undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL midway through his first season with the Canucks. Mikheyev tallied 13 goals and 28 points across 46 games last season before undergoing the knife and gives the Canucks a quality middle-six winger in his return. From a fantasy perspective, the 29-year-old does not contribute enough above-average production in any particular category as he is far more valuable to the Canucks than he is to your fantasy roster.
Vancouver Canucks winger Ilya Mikheyev (knee) came through a full practice on Sunday, but the team will likely still have to start the season without him. Mikheyev hasn't been cleared to play and will need to get in more practice time to be game-ready. Starting the campaign without Mikheyev is far from ideal for the Canucks, but it looks like he won't be forced to sit out a lot of action. The Canucks open their season Wednesday versus Edmonton and will have another game against the Oilers Saturday night.
