Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice President and General Manager Dave Nonis announced today that defenceman Alex Edler has been re-assigned to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL.

Edler, 21, played in five pre-season games for the Canucks in 2007. He recorded three points (2-1-3) and six penalty minutes.

In 2006-07, Edler split the season between the Vancouver Canucks and Manitoba Moose. In 22 NHL games, Edler recorded one goal and two assists. The Ostersund, Sweden native recorded 26 points (5-21-26) and 28 penalty minutes in 49 games for the Moose.

Edler was originally drafted by the Vancouver Canucks, 91st overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Analysis: Like most players from his native Sweden, Edler is a composed, calm, collected player. This attitude translates into his game - he plays smart, defensively sound hockey. Edler rarely makes mistakes and isn't afraid to join the rush. He already plays at a level beyond his years. He can go as far as he wants; he has the potential to be a top-pairing two-way defenceman.
