Demko made 26 saves in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blue Jackets.

It was his NHL debut, but it almost ended in a loss. Demko and the Canucks were up 4-1 before the Jackets scored on three consecutive shots in a 2:37 span during the third period. And Demko also benefited from four shots ringing off the crossbar. Still, it was his first NHL start and it ended in a win. Demko will be returning to the AHL to help his Utica Comets in the postseason, but his presence right now is a foreshadowing of the Orcas' future.
