Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: May be done for season
When asked if Halak, who's dealing with a hand injury, is done for the year Saturday, coach Bruce Boudreau said "I got the report from the other day, and it didn't look good," Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
The Canucks likely aren't going to make the playoffs, so it looks like it will be an uphill battle for Halak to return to action this season. If he's unable to suit up again, the 36-year-old goaltender will finish the year having gone 4-7-2 while posting a 2.94 GAA and a .903 save percentage through 17 appearances.... See More ... See Less

Halak (hand) won't travel with the Canucks on their upcoming two-game road trip, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Halak was hurt in the first period of Tuesday's game versus the Senators, and it'll be enough to keep him out of action at least until next Tuesday. He'll miss games Thursday in Minnesota and Saturday in Calgary, barring a significant turnaround.

Halak improved to 4-7-2 with a 3.01 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 16 appearances. He'll likely return to backup duties Saturday versus the Sharks, as the Canucks will ride with Thatcher Demko as long as they have a chance to make the playoffs.... See More ... See Less

Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Pulls off upset
Halak stopped 32 of 33 shots in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Halak put in one of his best performances of the season in a tough road matchup, and he was rewarded with the win. This was his first victory since Jan. 31, and the 36-year-old improved to 3-6-2 on the season after limiting the Avalanche to just a Nazem Kadri power-play goal. Halak has a 3.19 GAA and an .894 save percentage in 14 outings. Thatcher Demko will likely start Thursday versus the Wild as the Canucks continue their four-game road trip.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Starting in Colorado
Halak will defend the blue paint during Wednesday's road game versus the Avalanche, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Halak hasn't started since Feb. 28 versus New Jersey, when he surrendered six goals on just 14 shots before being replaced by Thatcher Demko in the second period of the eventual 7-2 loss.

Halak stopped 14 of 15 shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

The 36-year-old has struggled with a 2-6-2 record, a 3.41 GAA and an .886 save percentage in 13 appearances this season. The Canucks have yet to name a starting goalie for Sunday's game versus the Sabres.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Receives mercy pull
Halak allowed six goals on 14 shots in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Devils.
Halak and the Canucks found themselves in a 3-0 hole after the first period. Vasili Podkolzin put them on the board in the second, but Halak leaked another three tallies in a span of 3:11 before he was replaced in goal by Thatcher Demko. The 36-year-old Halak will take the loss in this one, dropping to 2-6-2 with a 3.42 GAA and an .883 save percentage. He's given head coach Bruce Boudreau little reason to deviate from starting Demko in most games. The Canucks don't have a back-to-back again until March 19 and 20, so it could be a while before Halak gets back in the crease.... See More ... See Less

Halak surrendered two goals on 11 shots in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Ducks.
Halak entered the game early in the second period after the Ducks established a 5-0 lead against Thatcher Demko. The Canucks improved as the game went on, but the deficit was too much to overcome. Halak wasn't exactly great despite a light workload -- he won't be pushing to take many starts away from Demko any time soon. Halak has a 2.93 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 11 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Blitzed by Islanders
Halak gave up five goals on 12 shots in 16:19 of Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Islanders.
The Canucks weren't ready to play, and Halak wasn't able to cover for their early lapses. The 36-year-old endured his worst outing of the season and took the loss for his troubles. He's now 2-5-2 with a 2.90 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 10 appearances. With the Canucks still clinging to playoff aspirations, Halak is unlikely to see much playing time until they're mathematically eliminated, as Thatcher Demko has emerged as a reliable workhorse in goal....

Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Facing Islanders on Wednesday
Halak will start Wednesday's game against the visiting Islanders.
The 36-year-old has played sparingly behind workhorse Thatcher Demko in his first year as a Canuck, producing a 2-4-2 record with a 2.40 GAA and .918 save percentage thus far. The scoring woes of the Islanders are well documented, as they currently sit dead-last in the NHL with a paltry 92 goals for in 39 games this season, so this is a nice soft matchup for Halak....

Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Between pipes Monday
Halak will get the starting nod on the road against Chicago on Monday.
After missing time while in the COVID-19 protocols, Halak will be making his first appearance in the crease since Dec. 30 versus the Kings, a stretch of 11 games on the sidelines. Even prior to his absence, the 36-year-old netminder was the clear second choice behind Thatcher Demko and figures to continue seeing infrequent opportunities.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Triumphant return to crease
Halak stopped 20 of 21 shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Halak's shutout bid was spoiled by Connor Murphy in the third period, but the veteran goalie was otherwise strong. This was Halak's first appearance since Dec. 30, as he missed time in the COVID-19 protocols. The 36-year-old improved to 2-4-2 with a 2.40 GAA and a .918 save percentage through nine appearances. With Thatcher Demko in place as the Canucks' No. 1 goalie, Halak is unlikely to see significant playing time in the second half of the campaign.... See More ... See Less

Canucks' Jaroslav Halak: Joining team on road
Halak won't leave with the team ahead of Thursday's matchup with Winnipeg but is expected to link up with the Canucks shortly thereafter according to coach Bruce Boudreau, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.
Even if Halak can be with the team for Thursday's game-day skate, it seems unlikely he would be immediately thrust back into action after having not played since Dec. 30 against the Kings. Still, the veteran netminder could be an option at some point during the Canucks four-game road trip, especially with Thatcher Demko (COVID-19 protocols) also not making the initial trip....
