|(4/9/16) Markstrom is penciled in to start Saturday against the visiting Oilers, The Province reports.|
Markstrom will look to avenge his road loss to the Oilers from Wednesday, when he was crushed for six goals allowed on 38 shots. With the Canucks having been well out of the playoff hunt, the Swede had been splitting time fairly evenly with Ryan Miller down the stretch. No matter his fate in Saturday's game, Markstrom will best remember the 2015-16 campaign as one in which he established career-high marks in games played (32) and wins (12). The heavier workload allowed the netminder to settle into a groove at times, leading to a .915 save mark on the season.
