  • Canucks' Tyler Myers: Ends lengthy drought

    Myers posted an assist, two shots on goal, three blocked shots, a plus-3 rating and two PIM in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Myers set up an Ilya Mikheyev goal in the final minute of the second period. The assist ended a 13-game point drought for Myers, who has had few positive contributions while seeing his role shrink a bit for the Canucks' struggling defense. The 32-year-old now has five helpers, 30 shots on net, 36 blocked shots, 30 hits, 41 PIM and a plus-5 rating in 24 outings.

  • Canucks' Ethan Bear: Offers assist Wednesday

    Bear produced an assist and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Bear helped out on Dakota Joshua's first goal of the contest at 4:15 of the first period. The 25-year-old Bear saw 20:32 of ice time Wednesday, his third-highest total of the season. He's got two assists in his last four games and is finding some traction as a puck-mover. The blueliner has two goals, four assists, 16 shots on net, 37 blocked shots, 14 hits and a minus-4 rating through 18 contests.

  • Canucks' Conor Garland: Registers helper in overtime win

    Garland notched a power-play assist, four shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Garland set up the second of Dakota Joshua's two goals in the contest. The helper gave Garland points in consecutive games for the first time since Oct. 27-28. The winger is up to four goals, eight helpers, four power-play points, 48 shots on net, 21 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 26 contests. Despite his uptick in offense, Garland is likely to remain in a third-line role.

  • Canucks' Quinn Hughes: Helps out in overtime

    Hughes notched an assist and blocked three shots in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Hughes had the secondary helper on Elias Pettersson's game-winning goal in overtime. Over the last seven games, Hughes has earned seven helpers, including five on the power play. The 23-year-old blueliner has 25 assists (13 on the power play), 43 shots on net, 26 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 23 contests. Only three players -- Jacob Trouba, Kevin Shattenkirk, and Mackenzie Weegar -- have taken more shots without scoring a goal so far this season.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Picks up two assists in win

    Ekman-Larsson posted two assists (one on the power play), two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Ekman-Larsson helped out on both of Dakota Joshua's goals in the first period. This ended Ekman-Larsson's four-game point drought, which was his longest of the season. He's up to one goal, 12 helpers, 48 shots, 43 hits, 21 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating through 27 outings while logging top-four minutes.

  • Canucks' Bo Horvat: Dishes pair of helpers

    Horvat notched two assists (one on the power play), two shots on goal and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Horvat has three goals and two assists over his last three games. His second helper Wednesday was on Andrei Kuzmenko's game-tying goal late in the third period. For the season, Horvat's been more of a finisher than a setup man -- he has 20 goals, nine assists, 90 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 27 appearances. He's earned 12 of his points on the power play and two others while shorthanded.

  • Canucks' Nils Hoglander: Nets goal in overtime win

    Hoglander scored a goal in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Hoglander tallied in the second period, but he was once again more of a peripheral contributor for the Canucks. Despite his top-line assignment, he saw a team-low 11:00 of ice time in the high-scoring contest. The 21-year-old winger is up to three goals, seven points, 25 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 22 outings, but such a limited role will continue to lower his scoring potential.

  • Canucks' Ilya Mikheyev: Lights lamp Wednesday

    Mikheyev scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Mikheyev scored in the second period to give the Canucks a 4-3 lead. The winger has three goals and his last two games. He's up to nine tallies, 16 points, 49 shots and a plus-5 rating through 24 contests as a fixture in the Canucks' top six.

  • Canucks' Andrei Kuzmenko: Key role in overtime win

    Kuzmenko scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Kuzmenko's third-period tally tied the game at 5-5, and he set up Elias Pettersson for the game-winner in the final minute of overtime. This was Kuzmenko's second straight multi-point game, and he's had six of them in the last 10 contests. The 26-year-old winger is up to 13 tallies, 12 helpers, nine power-play points, 52 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 26 appearances. He's been on the third line in the last two games, but it isn't slowing him down -- it appears Kuzmenko can impact the game on his own without the assistance of more proven players.

  • Canucks' Elias Pettersson: Plays hero again

    Pettersson scored a goal on three shots, added a power-play assist, went plus-2 and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    For the second game in a row, Pettersson secured a win in overtime. He's notched two goals and five assists over his last three games, and he's arguably been the Canucks' best player throughout the year. The 24-year-old has 13 goals (two game-winners), 34 points, 87 shots on net, 30 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 27 contests.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Career night in overtime win

    Joshua scored twice on five shots and added a fighting major in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Joshua missed two games with an undisclosed injury, but he made a bunch of noise in his return. He scored twice in the first period, with the latter goal coming on the power play, and he added a fight with Radim Simek between the goals. Joshua nearly had a hat trick, but his potential goal in the second period was overturned for goalie interference. This was the 26-year-old's first multi-goal game, and he's up to six tallies, two assists, 24 shots on net, 37 PIM, 55 hits and a minus-1 rating through 24 contests. He should continue to be a fixture on the Canucks' fourth line.

  • Canucks' Spencer Martin: Wins ugly in overtime

    Martin allowed five goals on 39 shots in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Martin had another ugly outing, but head coach Bruce Boudreau let him play through it this time. The Sharks weren't any better in their own zone, and the Canucks pulled off a late comeback to win in overtime. Martin improved to 8-2-1, but his 3.48 GAA and .890 save percentage are far from acceptable for standard fantasy formats. It's concerning he struggled this much against a rather tame opponent -- he could be a risky play if he starts Saturday against the Wild.

  • Canucks' Dakota Joshua: Good to go

    Joshua (undisclosed) is expected to play Wednesday versus the Sharks, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

    Joshua will return after a two-game absence. The 26-year-old will resume his usual fourth-line role, bumping Sheldon Dries from the Canucks' lineup.

  • Canucks' Spencer Martin: Looking to bounce back Wednesday

    Martin will guard the road goal versus the Sharks on Wednesday, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

    Martin was pulled after allowing four goals on nine shots Monday versus the Sharks. The Canucks rallied back to win that game 7-6 in overtime, but they will be hoping Martin's play doesn't require another big rally Wednesday. The 27-year-old has a favorable matchup in this one, but he's allowed 12 tallies across his last four outings.

    Wolanin was assigned to AHL Abbotsford on Tuesday.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Moves to IR

    Demko (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

    Demko, who has been out since Dec. 1, is expected to miss six weeks. Spencer Martin has started the past two games for Vancouver, with Collin Delia serving as the backup goalie.

  • Canucks' Christian Wolanin: Up with Canucks

    Wolanin was called up from AHL Abbotsford on Monday.

    Wolanin was a healthy scratch Monday against Montreal. He has racked up four goals and 24 points in 20 games at the AHL level this year.
