Description: The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed defenseman Andrew Alberts to a two-year contract extension.
Insight: Alberts provides some size on the Canucks' blueline, although he will never win any scoring titles. He will likely be a fifth or sixth defenseman for the Canucks next season.

Description: Andrew Alberts will likely replace Dan Hamhuis again on the Canucks' blueline for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday.
Insight: Hamhuis is sidelined with a lower-body injury from Game 1. Alberts, a former Bruin, gives the Canucks some size that will be of some use against the bigger Bruins' forwards. Just don't expect him to provide any offense.

Description: Andrew Alberts will go on long-term injury reserve with a broken wrist suffered in Monday's game against St. Louis.
Insight: The way that Canucks' defensemen have been dropping like flies recently, they may have to ask Harold Snepsts to come out of retirement. All kidding aside, Alberts has no fantasy value. The Canucks have recalled Yann Sauve to play in Tuesday's game against Minnesota.
