Edler excited for new challenge
Edler excited for new challenge, but still coming to grips with Canucks exit 🏒
VANCOUVER – For nearly half of his life – and all of his adulthood – Alex Edler has returned to Vancouver from Sweden each summer to get ready for hockey season.
Later this month, he’ll return so he can get ready to leave.
The 35-year-old defenceman said the reality of leaving the Vancouver Canucks, the team that drafted him in 2004 and two years later gave him his first of 1,007 National Hockey League games, won’t seem real until he returns to the city in August and starts packing up his house for the move next season to the Los Angeles Kings.
