  • Golden Knights' Sven Baertschi: Down to AHL

    Baertschi was reassigned to AHL Henderson on Friday.

    Baertschi made his season (and Vegas) debut Thursday against Detroit, recording one shot in 13:54 of ice time. With four goals and four assists through eight games at AHL Henderson, he should be on the short list of call-ups the next time the Golden Knights need additional personnel.

  • Golden Knights' Sven Baertschi: Summoned by big club

    Baertschi was recalled by Vegas on Tuesday.

    Jonathan Marchessault has entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, so Baertschi could draw into the lineup immediately for Tuesday's game versus the Hurricanes. Baertschi's picked up four goals and eight points through 12 AHL appearances this year.

  • Golden Knights' Sven Baertschi: Inks two-way contract

    Baertschi signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Golden Knights on Wednesday.

    Baertschi spent all of 2020-21 with AHL Utica, posting 14 points in 24 contests for the Canucks' minor-league affiliate. The Swiss winger will try to compete for a bottom-six job with the Golden Knights in training camp, but he's not likely to make the big club's roster.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Heading to minors

    Baertschi was assigned to AHL Utica on Tuesday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    The Canucks entered an agreement with the Jets to keep some minor-leaguers in Canada with AHL Manitoba, but Baertschi won't be one of them. It's unclear if the 28-year-old winger will report to Utica -- he has requested a trade, but he'll need to get playing time to maintain trade value. He'd like an NHL job as well, but he's not likely to see much more than bottom-six minutes even if his trade request is fulfilled.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: On waivers

    The Canucks placed Baertschi on waivers Monday.

    Baertschi only appeared in six contests for the Canucks in 2019-20, netting two assists. He was hoping to land an NHL spot this season, and since a trade never materialized, he may have to wait for injuries to create a potential opening for him with the Canucks.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Opts out of playoffs

    Baertschi has opted out of the NHL's Return to Play, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Baertschi, who's repeatedly asked the Canucks for a trade, only appeared in six games with the big club this campaign, so he's clearly decided it's not worth risking his health to attend training camp for a tournament he likely wouldn't have received playing time in. If Vancouver isn't able to find a way to trade the overpaid, disgrunted winger to another club this offseason, it will likely have to once again settle for burying him in the minors in 2020-21.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Looking for NHL job

    According to Baertschi's agent Andre Rufener, the winger is looking to play in the NHL next season rather than sign with a European club, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Baertschi has seen action in just six games for the Canucks this season back in mid-November, when he notched two power-play assists, seven shots and five hits while averaging 11:49 of ice time. The 26-year-old went unclaimed on waivers and has spent the rest of the year with AHL Utica, where he has tallied 46 points in 43 contests.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Subject to waivers

    The Canucks waived Baertschi on Sunday.

    Baertschi was a healthy scratch often with the big club, and he has since been demoted to AHL Utica. General manager Jim Benning confirmed he was looking to trade Baertschi, according to Ed Willes of The Chronicle Herald, but with no suitors, Benning hopes another team will take Baertschi's $3.37 million AAV contract off the Canucks' books. The 27-year-old Baertschi posted 14 points over 26 NHL games last year.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Demoted to bus league

    Vancouver assigned Baertschi to AHL Utica on Tuesday.

    Baertschi has been a healthy scratch for three consecutive contests, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 27-year-old will return to a prominent role with Utica, where he's racked up eight points in seven games this campaign.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Helps out on power play

    Baertschi notched a power-play assist, two hits and two PIM in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

    Baertschi has two assists, six shots and five hits through five appearances. He's seeing third line minutes, and his production has been about what we'd expect given his role. Fantasy owners need not rush to the waiver wire for the 27-year-old.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: First point of 2019-20

    Baertschi registered an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

    Baertschi set up Adam Gaudette for a power-play goal in the third period, helping the Canucks restore a one-goal advantage. It's the first point of the year for the Swiss winger, who has averaged 12:07 per game in three appearances since he was called up from AHL Utica.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Making season debut

    Baertschi will suit up for the Canucks for Friday's game in Winnipeg.

    Baertschi posted 10 points in seven games with AHL Utica, got the call up, and will make his season debut for the Canucks. Injuries limited the winger to just 26 appearances last year, but he's healthy now and looking to take advantage of the opportunity. He will start out on Bo Horvat's wing on the second line.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Summoned by big club

    The Canucks recalled Baertschi from AHL Utica on Friday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Michael Ferland is dealing with an upper-body injury, so Baertschi could make his season debut with the Canucks on Friday against Anaheim. The 27-year-old winger has notched two goals and 10 points in seven minor-league contests this season.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Drops to waiver wire

    Baertschi was waived by the Canucks for the purpose of reassignment.

    This move comes as a surprise since Baertschi looked to have a shot at the top six this year. However, he's struggled with injuries over the last two years and played just 26 games last season due to a concussion. Baertschi made use of the limited time, posting 14 points with seven on the power play. He'll start the season with AHL Utica if he clears waivers, but there's a decent chance he's claimed by a team looking to add middle-six depth with power-play upside at $3.37 million per year.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Finds twine in shootout win

    Baertschi deposited his ninth goal of the campaign in Saturday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Stars.

    It's his first goal in three contests since returning from a concussion. Baertschi has had a down year with 14 points in only 25 games, after posting no fewer than 28 points and 53 appearances in his three previous full seasons with the Canucks. The first-round pick from 2011 will likely return to a middle-six role next season, but at 26 years old, there's not expected to be much more development for the Swiss winger.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Back in action

    Baertschi will replace injured forward Jake Virtanen (lower body) against the Stars on Saturday, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

    The Canucks rested Baertschi against the Kings on Thursday since he's only two games removed from his return following a concussion issue that cost him 23 straight contests. Baertsci has averaged 0.48 points per game over an eight-year career split between the Flames and Canucks, but he could have trouble planting himself in the top six for the four games that remain on Vancouver's schedule.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Won't be in lineup

    Baertschi will come out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Kings, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

    Baertschi has played just twice since returning from his concussion that cost him 23 contests. The winger only skated 12:05 worth of ice time in his most recent affair, and is sitting tonight due to being too tired. Don't be surprised if Baertschi sees limited time, if any, the rest of the way. His health is the main priority, and with the season almost over, he may want to turn his focus to 2019 training camp.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Goes under radar in return

    Baertschi (concussion) skated 16:48 with a minus-3 rating in Sunday's 5-0 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Baertschi was unable to make an impact on a night where Sergei Bobrovsky impersonated a brick wall. He skated 1:07 more than his season average, so he should be go over the final few games of the year.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Back in action Sunday

    Baertschi (concussion) will return to the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jackets, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

    Baertschi last played Feb. 2, missing the last 23 games with the head injury. The 26-year-old has 13 points in 22 games in a campaign ruined by injuries. He may be eased back into action, so it's unclear how much ice time he'll see Sunday.

  • Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Still day-to-day

    Baertschi (concussion) remains day-to-day ahead of Saturday night's game against the Flames.

    The Canucks reportedly will go with the same lineup that led to a 7-4 triumph over the lowly Senators on Wednesday. It took a while for the team to decide Baertschi wouldn't play in the next contest, meaning he could get an even closer look for possible activation against the Flames on Sunday.
