  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Facing Jets

    Demko will be between the visiting pipes versus Winnipeg on Thursday, John Lu of TSN reports.

    Demko was sensational Tuesday in a 4-1 win over Calgary, as he returned from a 14-game absence. He stopped 39 shots and looked playoff-ready. Demko is 35-13-2 with a 2.44 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 50 contests this season. He will face the Jets, who will be resting all their top regulars, including Josh Morrissey and Kyle Connor.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Kept busy in return

    Demko stopped 39 of 40 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

    Demko returned from a 14-game absence due to a knee injury, and the Flames kept the pressure up throughout the contest. The 28-year-old was up to the challenge, allowing just a Brayden Pachal tally in the third period. Getting Demko back is a huge boost for a Canucks team that has the depth to be a contender in the playoffs. He's at 35-13-2 with a 2.44 GAA and a .918 save percentage over 50 appearances. It's unclear at this time if Demko will get the start Thursday versus the Jets in a tilt that may have implications for home-ice scenarios later in the postseason.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Returns to crease Tuesday

    Demko (knee) will be activated from long-term injured reserve ahead of his home start against Calgary on Tuesday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Demko will return from a 14-game absence because of a knee injury. He has a 34-13-2 record this season with five shutouts, a 2.47 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 49 games played. Calgary is tied for 17th in the league this campaign with 3.09 goals per contest.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Recovery progressing

    Demko's (knee) workload is increasing daily, and he could return to action as soon as Saturday versus Edmonton, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

    Demko will miss a 13th straight game Wednesday against Arizona, but it's looking increasingly likely that he'll participate in a regular-season contest or two before the playoffs get underway. He's gone 34-13-2 while posting a 2.47 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 49 appearances this campaign.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: On long-term injured reserve

    Demko (knee) was moved to long-term injured reserve Wednesday, retroactive to March 9.

    Demko will be eligible to return for a road game against LA on April 6 at the earliest. He has a 34-13-2 record, 2.47 GAA and .917 save percentage in 49 outings this season. Casey DeSmith is likely to continue to get the bulk of Vancouver's starts during Demko's absence while Arturs Silovs will primarily serve as the backup.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Facing 2-3 week absence

    Demko (undisclosed) is expected to miss 2-3 weeks, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports Monday.

    Demko figures to be out of the lineup for at least the Canucks' next six contests, though it could certainly be longer. With the netminder on the shelf, Casey DeSmith figures to see a heavy workload while the team will need to promote a goalie from AHL Abbotsford. Demko has already set a new career high with 34 wins, including five shutouts, in 49 appearances but may not be able to reach 40 as a result of this absence.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Set to miss time

    Demko (undisclosed) is expected to miss some games, Rick Dhaliwal of CHEK television reports Monday.

    The severity of Demko's injury hasn't been disclosed by the team yet, but at a minimum, it seems he won't be an option against Colorado on Wednesday or Washington on Saturday. The 28-year-old netminder was riding a three-game winning streak prior to getting hurt, including stopping all 12 shots before he was pulled from Saturday's game against Winnipeg. With Demko on the shelf, Casey DeSmith figures to get some extra looks between the pipes.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Exits Saturday's game

    Demko (undisclosed) won't return to Saturday's game versus the Jets.

    Demko left midway through the second period after stopping all 12 shots sent his way over the first 26:40 of the game. The Canucks did not provide a reason for his exit, but it's not a good sign that it wasn't labeled as precautionary. They don't play again until Wednesday versus the Avalanche and have just two games in the next seven days, so fantasy managers may want to turn to other goalies until more is known about Demko's status.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Set to start Saturday

    Demko is expected to start at home against Winnipeg on Saturday, per Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650.

    Demko has won his past two contests while saving 50 of 52 shots (.962 save percentage). He's 33-13-2 with a 2.49 GAA and a .916 save percentage in 48 outings in 2023-24. The Jets, who rank 19-9-3 on the road, figure to be a challenging adversary.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Keeps Golden Knights in check

    Demko stopped 27 of 28 shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Golden Knights.

    The Canucks opened up a 2-0 lead in the first period, and that was all Demko needed to get the win. It was the first time he's won consecutive games since he recorded three straight victories from Feb. 11-15. The 28-year-old hasn't been very consistent lately, but he's still one of the top goalies in the NHL. Demko is at 33-13-2 with a 2.49 GAA and a .916 save percentage over 48 outings. The Canucks return home to face the Jets in a big Saturday showdown.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Slated to start Thursday

    Demko is expected to tend the twine on the road against Vegas on Thursday, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

    Demko had a tough run to end February, going 1-3-1 with a 3.41 GAA in his final five games of the month, but he bounced back with a 23-save victory over the Kings on Tuesday to kick off March. The netminder is tied with Alexandar Georgiev for the NHL wins lead (32), which should earn Demko a Vezina Trophy nomination even if Connor Hellebuyck is still considered the favorite.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Wins in overtime

    Demko stopped 23 of 24 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Kings.

    Demko gave up five goals on 20 shots in his last outing, a loss against the Kings. The 28-year-old showed clear improvement, making some key saves in a much closer game that ultimately went in the Canucks' favor. Demko has won just two of his last seven outings, but he's still got a good 32-13-2 record with a 2.52 GAA and a .915 save percentage over 47 appearances. The Canucks' next game is Thursday in Vegas.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Starting in LA

    Demko will guard the road goal versus the Kings on Tuesday, Harman Dayal of The Athletic reports.

    Demko struggled mightily in his last start Thursday versus LA, surrendering five goals on only 20 shots en route to an ugly 5-1 home defeat. The 28-year-old goaltender will try to shake off that poor performance and return to the win column in a road rematch with the same Kings squad Tuesday.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Not good in Thursday's loss

    Demko stopped 15 of 20 shots in a 5-1 loss to the Kings on Thursday.

    This was the first time Demko's started five games in a row, but it looks like he's fading a bit. He's lost five of his last six outings, and this was his worst performance in that span. The skid has the 28-year-old down to 31-13-2 with a 2.55 GAA and a .914 save percentage through 46 starts. By total minutes, Demko trails only Alexandar Georgiev in the NHL this season, though Juuse Saros has made more starts (48). With Demko struggling, Casey DeSmith may be due a start soon, perhaps as early as Sunday's road game in Anaheim.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Leaves ice first Thursday

    Demko was the first goalie to exit the ice Thursday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports, indicating he'll be between the home pipes versus Los Angeles.

    Demko will be making his ninth appearance in the Canucks' last 10 contests, having gone 4-3-1 with a 2.63 GAA and .909 save percentage over that stretch. The netminder is currently tied for the NHL lead in wins (31) with Colorado's Alexandar Georgiev and is among the favorites to take home the Vezina Trophy at the end of the season, especially with five shutouts under his belt.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Drops result in overtime

    Demko stopped 36 of 40 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins.

    The Canucks saw leads of 2-0 and 3-2 slip away before Erik Karlsson won it for the Penguins in overtime. Demko has lost four of his last five outings, giving up 16 goals in that span. He's at 31-12-2 with a 2.50 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 45 contests this season. The Canucks' current homestand ends Thursday against the struggling Kings, which could give Demko a chance to get back on track if he gets the start. However, he has not started more than four games in a row this season, and he's been between the pipes for the Canucks' last four contests.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Set to face Penguins

    Demko will patrol the home crease Tuesday against Pittsburgh, per Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff.

    Demko is coming off a 20-save performance in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over Boston. He has posted a 31-12-1 record this season with five shutouts, a 2.47 GAA and a .917 save percentage over 44 games played. The Penguins rank 20th in the league this campaign with 2.98 goals per contest.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Earns OT win

    Demko stopped 20 of 22 shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Bruins.

    Demko found himself down 2-0 after the second period before the Canucks rallied to tie the game with a pair of goals in the final frame. Brock Boeser eventually netted the game-winner in overtime, ending Demko's losing skid at three contests. The 28-year-old netminder improved to 31-12-1 with a .917 save percentage and 2.47 GAA this season. Demko should be back between the pipes Tuesday at home against the Penguins.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Set to face Bruins

    Demko is expected to start at home against Boston on Saturday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    The Bruins are 34-12-12 this season, including 16-5-7 on the road, so they'll be a challenging adversary for Demko, especially given the goaltender's recent struggles. The netminder has lost his last three contests while allowing 10 goals on 84 shots (.881 save percentage). Demko is still having a strong campaign overall, though, posting a 30-12-1 record, 2.48 GAA and .917 save percentage through 43 appearances.
