Markstrom (lower body) has been ruled out of Vancouver's next three games, but he's slated to rejoin the team soon. Markstrom hasn't played since Feb. 16 against the Blues, so he'll likely need to log a number of full practices before returning to game action. The 27-year-old goaltender should resume practicing as soon as he joins the team, which should happen at some point over the next few days. He'll likely remain on injured reserve until he's given the green light to make his 27th appearance in goal for the Canucks this season.
Markstrom (lower body), who was already injured, is now suffering from food poisoning and won't travel with the team. Markstrom has long been considered the heir apparent in Vancouver, but his inability to stay on the ice, combined with inconsistent play, will no doubt have the Canucks brass reconsidering the three-year contract extension they gave the netminder in the offseason. For now, Ryan Miller will continue to serve as the No. 1 option, but don't be surprised to see the reins turned over to Markstrom once he's given the all-clear.
Markstrom (lower body) skated before practice Tuesday but is at least a week away from returning, per coach Willie Desjardins. It's crazy to think that an injury sustained during a friendly skills competition could keep Markstrom out for almost a month, but here we are. Ryan Miller will likely continue to command the majority of starts in the Vancouver net while Markstrom remains sidelined, with Richard Bachman snagging starts here and there.
Markstrom (lower body) is on Vancouver's injured reserve list, per the NHL's official media site. Markstrom's injury is apparently a bit more serious than day-to-day, so he'll likely remain off the active roster for the rest of the week. Recent call-up Richard Bachman will be the backup goalie until Markstrom is able to return to action.
Markstrom (lower body) will not travel to California for the Canucks' three-game road trip and is slated to be out at least a week. Assuming this schedule holds true, Markstrom will likely miss at least the next four games to this injury. The 27-year-old keeper posted a 2-3-1 record to go with a .904 save percentage and a 2.69 GAA over his last four starts, so it's not like he was going to challenge Ryan Miller for the starting job anyway. In the meantime, Richard Bachman could see his first start of the season this week.
