      Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Nets second goal in loss

      Baertschi scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Senators. Baertschi is finding ways to produce of late, racking up two goals and four points in his last five games. While the 23-year-old is showing off his offensive potential, he's averaged just 11:07 of ice time this season and has been credited with just 17 shots on goal, so it's hard to see him racking up a ton of goals. With seven points and a plus-3 rating in 14 games on the year, though, Baertschi is showing he can produce offense, so if his minutes increase, he could be worth adding in some deeper leagues.

      Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Grabs two points

      Baertschi tallied a goal and an assist in Sunday's loss to the Devils. A healthy scratch two games earlier, Baertschi had his best game of the season Sunday, as he netted his first goal of the year and saw some ice time on the power play. Despite that, the 23-year-old only skated for 8:52 and has been largely reduced to a limited role for much of the season.

      Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Likely scratch Wednesday

      Baertschi will be a healthy scratch Wednesday night if Chris Higgins returns from a foot injury, as expected. Baertschi was on the ice for 12:43 in Monday's contest against the Flyers, notching a secondary assist in the 4-1 win. Someone has to draw the short straw with Higgins returning, however, one has to wonder when Baertschi, a first-round draft pick by the Flames in 2011 will finally get meaningful minutes in the NHL. The sniper has only made 79 career appearances between the Flames and Canucks since entering the league in 2011-12.

    • Racks up 5 assists in preseason

      News: Sven Baertschi logged an assist in Sunday's preseason finale against the Oilers. He finishes the preseason with five assists in six games.
      Analysis: While he did pile on the helpers, Sven Baertschi only fired nine shots on goal all preseason -- which didn't help in his quest to find twine. The 22-year-old recorded 15 points (seven goals) in 15 games with AHL Utica in 2014-15 and could play a key role for the Canucks in 2015-16. The former Flame sees the ice very well and is a terrific playmaker, so he could produce some decent totals this season, especially if he can land a spot on the power play. The former 94 point-getter in the WHL has just 69 career NHL games under his belt, but he possesses some unique talent and could be an under-the-radar fantasy gem in 2015-16. Keep an eye out.
    • Baertschi Inks One-Year Deal With Canucks

      News: Sven Baertschi signed a one-year (one-way), $900,000 contract with the Canucks on Tuesday, Sportsnet's Irfaan Gaffar reports.
      Analysis: Sven Baertschi played well with AHL Utica last season, registering 40 points (15 goals, 25 assists) in 51 games with the team. The 22-year old also suited up for 18 regular season games at the NHL level in 2014-15, tallying six points (two goals, four assists) in those contests. He will get a chance to compete for a roster spot with the big club in training camp. If Baertschi is able to lock down a roster spot with the Canucks in training camp, he will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the team.
    • Canucks Reassign Baertschi

      News: Sven Baertschi was reassigned to AHL Utica on Monday.
      Analysis: The 22-year-old skated for the Canucks in two games during the team's first-round playoff series against the Flames, his former organization. He didn't make much of an impact while seeing a grand total of 19:19 of action across the two games, but should be primed to receive heavier minutes for Utica, who is in the midst of a first-round series of its own against Chicago.

      News: Sven Baertschi, who was recalled from AHL Utica on Tuesday, will likely be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Flames, TSN 1040 AM's Matthew Sekeres reports.
