Markstrom was given the starting nod for Thursday's contest with Winnipeg.

The Swede has had a phenomenal start to 2017-18, his first season that he's entered as a franchise's undisputed No. 1 goaltender, posting a 1.94 GAA and .948 save percentage to go along with a 1-0-1 record. A high second-round pick in 2008, Markstrom's talent is undeniable, but like many other tall netminders, he took longer to adjust to the NHL game. If the Canucks' defense is able to limit high-quality chances against the Jets, as well as throughout the season, Markstrom could be a great option in goal for any fantasy format.
