The Canucks brought up netminder Arturs Silovs in a corresponding move to serve as Collin Delia's backup until Thatcher Demko (lower body) returns.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Designated for waivers
Martin was placed on waivers Monday for the purpose of reassignment.
Assuming he clears, Martin will likely be sent down to the minors Tuesday after serving as the backup for Monday's clash with Detroit. Given the decision to reassign Martin, the team appears set to get Thatcher Demko (lower body) back in the lineup against the Rangers on Wednesday, though it has yet to be officially confirmed by the club....

Canucks' Spencer Martin: Facing Red Wings
Martin will guard the visiting net versus Detroit on Saturday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Martin has lost his last nine games, last winning Dec. 27 versus San Jose. He is 11-14-1 with a 3.95 GAA and .873 save percentage overall. Martin will try to turn things around against a Red Wings team that ranks 26th in home scoring with 3.04 goals per game at Little Caesars Arena.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Rough day in Detroit
Martin stopped 20 shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.
Detroit scored twice in the first three minutes of the game and never looked back, with Martin having little chance on the five pucks that beat him on the afternoon. The 27-year-old netminder has given up at least four goals in six of his last seven appearances, and that brutal stretch has left Martin with a 3.99 GAA and .871 save percentage on the season....

Canucks' Spencer Martin: Losing streak reaches nine
Martin allowed four goals on 21 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers.
Chris Kreider opened the scoring against Martin 6:53 into the game, and the Canucks were playing catch-up the rest of the night. Martin has suffered nine consecutive regulation losses, and he's allowed at least three goals in each of those defeats. Few goalies have less fantasy value at the moment.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Gets starting nod versus Rangers
Martin will be between the pipes on the road against the Rangers on Wednesday.
Martin is currently mired in an eight-game losing streak during which he's posted a 4.95 GAA and an .847 save percentage. Even with his struggles, the 27-year-old Ontario native has continued to split the netminding duties with Collin Delia. Given his struggles, Martin will almost certainly be relegated to the No. 2 role once Thatcher Demko (lower body) is cleared to return.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Skid reaches eight games
Martin allowed six goals on 35 shots in Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Kraken.
The Kraken controlled the game basically from the opening faceoff, and Martin could do little to slow their offense. Two of the goals he allowed came on the power play. This was his eighth straight loss, and arguably one of his worst performances in that span. The 27-year-old is down to 11-13-1 with a 3.94 GAA and an .875 save percentage through 27 appearances. The Canucks have an easier matchup on tap for Friday versus the Blue Jackets, but it may be Collin Delia in goal for that one -- he's been alternating starts with Martin over the last two weeks....

Canucks' Spencer Martin: Slated to face Kraken
Martin is expected to start in Wednesday's road game against Seattle.
Martin has lost his last seven contests while posting an ugly 4.77 GAA and .851 save percentage over that span. He's 11-12-1 with a 3.86 GAA and an .877 save percentage in 26 contests in 2022-23. Seattle has lost three of its last four games, but the Kraken still have an impressive 27-14-5 record on the season.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Struggles again Saturday
Martin gave up three goals on 28 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Martin saw his losing streak reach seven games, though this was the first time in his last four outings that he limited the damage to three goals. The 27-year-old just can't shake this slump -- he's down to 11-12-1 with a 3.86 GAA and an .877 save percentage through 26 appearances. Collin Delia's only been marginally better so far, but Martin's poor play could put his NHL job in danger once Thatcher Demko (lower body) is activated from injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Set to start Saturday
Martin is expected to start at home against Edmonton on Saturday, per Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650.
Martin has lost his last six contests while posting a 5.13 GAA and .843 save percentage over that span. He's 11-11-1 with a 3.89 GAA and .877 save percentage in 25 games in 2022-23. Edmonton has the third-ranked offense with 3.70 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Pulled in first period
Martin gave up four goals on 10 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Lightning.
Martin was in the game for just 14:35 of the first period before he was replaced by Collin Delia. The Canucks failed to cover Martin's damage, leaving him with his sixth straight loss. The 27-year-old has allowed at least three goals in each of those games. He's now at 11-11-1 with a 3.89 GAA and an .877 save percentage through 25 appearances, and he may be at risk of losing his place on the NHL roster once Thatcher Demko (lower body) returns. The Canucks face another pair of dynamic offenses in a weekend back-to-back against the Avalanche on Friday and the Oilers on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Taking on Tampa Bay
Per Thomas Drance of The Athletic, Martin was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, putting him on track to guard the home goal during Wednesday's matchup with the Lightning.
Martin wasn't great in his last start Saturday against the Panthers, surrendering four goals on 35 shots en route to a 4-3 loss. He'll try to snap his personal five-game losing streak in a tough home matchup with a hot Tampa Bay team that's won four straight contests.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Stuck with fifth straight loss
Martin made 31 saves in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.
Three Florida goals -- two on the power play -- in a little over eight minutes during the second period proved to be the difference as Martin took his fifth straight loss and 10th of the season. The 27-year-old netminder has given up at least three goals in each of those five losses and has allowed fewer than three only once in his last 13 appearances -- a dreadful stretch in which he's stumbled to a 4.37 GAA and .862 save percentage. Thatcher Demko (lower body) began skating at the beginning of the month and seems to be inching closer to a return, but the Canucks haven't yet offered a clear timeline for when he might be back between the pipes....

Canucks' Spencer Martin: Slated to start Saturday
Martin is expected to start in Saturday's road game versus Florida, Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Province reports.
Canucks coach Bruce Boudreau said Martin might also start on the road versus Carolina on Sunday. Thatcher Demko (lower body) is on the injured reserve list, so that might be why Boudreau is considering using Martin on back-to-back days. Martin is 11-9-1 with a 3.74 GAA and .880 save percentage in 23 contests this season. The 27-year-old goaltender's struggled recently, dropping his last four games while posting a 4.61 GAA and .852 save percentage over that span. Florida has the 15th-ranked offense with 3.23 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Allows five goals in loss
Martin allowed five goals on 36 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Penguins.
Vancouver jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, but Martin would concede five straight goals to Pittsburgh in a 5-4 loss. The 27-year-old netminder has struggled recently, dropping four consecutive starts while allowing 16 goals in that span. The 27-year-old netminder falls to 11-9-1 with a .880 save percentage. Martin's days as a starter could be numbered with Thatcher Demko (lower body) moving closer to a return.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: In goal Tuesday
Martin will guard the road goal Tuesday versus the Penguins, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Martin will make his first start since Jan. 3, though he also gave up three goals in a relief loss to the Jets on Sunday. The 27-year-old has given up 11 goals over his last three outings, all losses. The Penguins snapped their recent slump in Arizona over the weekend, and they could present a challenge for a struggling goalie.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Takes loss in relief Sunday
Martin stopped 11 of 14 shots after replacing Collin Delia early in the second period of Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Jets.
The Canucks actually tied the game up at 4-4 soon after Martin entered the game, so the loss goes on his record. It continues a run of poor play for the 27-year-old netminder that stretches back to early December -- Martin has allowed fewer than three goals only once in his last 11 appearances, leaving him with a 3.67 GAA and .881 save percentage on the season....

Canucks' Spencer Martin: Yields five goals in loss
Martin allowed five goals on 28 shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Islanders. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.
Martin had another rough second period, yielding three goals in that frame as the Islanders took control of the game. The 27-year-old has allowed five tallies in four of his last six outings. He's started to alternate games with Collin Delia lately, though it's possible Martin gets the nod versus his old club, the Avalanche, on Thursday. He's posted an 11-7-1 record with a 3.63 GAA and an .883 save percentage through 21 outings.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Spencer Martin: Set to start Tuesday
Martin was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Thomas Drance of The Athletic reports, indicating he will start Tuesday at home versus the Islanders.
Martin is coming off a 27-save effort in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Calgary. He has a record of 11-6-1 this season with a 3.55 GAA and an .886 save percentage in 20 appearances. The Islanders sit 17th in the NHL this year with 3.16 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
