Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Picks up first shutout
DeSmith recorded a 26-save shutout in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Wild.
DeSmith was busy in this contest, but he held the fort and got just enough support from his teammates. This was DeSmith's first shutout as a Canuck and the 10th of his career. The 32-year-old netminder hasn't seen a lot of action lately, playing just five times since the start of November. He's at a 5-2-1 record with a 2.69 GAA and a .913 save percentage through nine appearances. DeSmith has been solid when he plays, and he may rotate in more often to keep Thatcher Demko fresh....

DeSmith was the first goalie off the ice Thursday, Jeff Paterson of The Hockey News reports, indicating he'll guard the cage against the Wild at home.
DeSmith will be playing in just his second match in the Canucks' last 10 outings, as he continues to serve as the No. 2 option behind Thatcher Demko. In limited action this year, DeSmith is 4-2-1 with a 3.06 GAA and .903 save percentage in eight appearances.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Takes another loss
DeSmith surrendered four goals on 22 shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Sharks.
DeSmith started the year fairly well, winning four of his first six outings, but he's now taken two straight losses. During his skid, he's allowed eight goals on 60 shots. The 32-year-old netminder is at 4-2-1 with a 3.06 GAA and a .907 save percentage through eight appearances. The Canucks don't have any back-to-back sets over the next week, so Thatcher Demko could get a run of uncontested playing time amid DeSmith's struggles.... See More ... See Less

DeSmith will protect the road goal in Saturday's game versus the Sharks, Kate Pettersen of the Canucks' official site reports.
DeSmith will get the second half of a back-to-back after Thatcher Demko cruised to a win in Seattle on Friday. DeSmith is 4-1-1 with a 2.89 GAA and a .912 save percentage through seven contests. The Sharks are at the bottom of the NHL in most offensive metrics, so this is a favorable matchup for the 32-year-old goalie.... See More ... See Less

DeSmith will guard the road goal Thursday versus the Flames, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
DeSmith will start the second half of a back-to-back after Thatcher Demko earned a 4-3 overtime win Wednesday over the Islanders. DeSmith has won four of his six outings this season, allowing 14 goals on 167 shots for a .916 save percentage. The Flames have scored just three goals over their last two games, though they'll presumably be the fresher team for Thursday's contest.... See More ... See Less

It's the first regulation loss this season for the 32-year-old netminder -- he's now 4-1-1 with a .917 save percentage while backing up Thatcher Demko.

Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Another strong outing
DeSmith made 28 saves in a 5-2 win over the Senators on Thursday.
DeSmith had little chance on either goal. Drake Batherson intercepted a clearing attempt by Canucks' defender Ian Cole, went in alone and deked on the forehand over DeSmith's glove to cut the score to 2-1 late in the first. Then Artem Zub's point shot deflected off Elias Pettersson midway through the second to knot the game 2-2. DeSmith still coughs up big rebounds, but he's been a good fit behind Thatcher Demko. He is 3-0-1 with a 2.82 GAA and a .919 save percentage -- he's playing some of the best hockey of his career.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Facing Senators
DeSmith will get the starting nod on the road in Ottawa on Thursday, according to Thomas Drance of The Athletic.
DeSmith is 2-0-1 with a 3.06 GAA and .905 save percentage this season. The netminder is the backup to Thatcher Demko, who has been sensational this season. DeSmith will face the Senators, who are coming off a 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Takes overtime loss
DeSmith allowed four goals on 24 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers.
DeSmith and the Canucks had few answers for the Rangers' power play, which converted three times in regulation. This was the worst of DeSmith's four outings this season, and it also resulted in his first defeat (2-0-1). The 32-year-old netminder is likely to play no more than once per week as long as Thatcher Demko remains healthy and effective.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Slated to face Rangers
DeSmith is the planned starter for Saturday's home game versus the Rangers, coach Rick Tocchet told Thomas Drance of The Athletic on Friday.
Thatcher Demko will face the Blues at home Friday, so it makes sense that DeSmith is slated to serve in the second half of the back-to-back. DeSmith has a 2-0-0 record while stopping 75 of 81 shots (.926 save percentage) through three outings this year. The Rangers have a 5-2-0 record, but they've been mediocre offensively, averaging 3.00 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Great addition to team
DeSmith stopped 33 of 36 shots in a 5-3 win over Florida on Saturday.
DeSmith has been a great addition to the Canucks, winning both of his starts. He has a 2.73 GAA through three appearances. With Vancouver playing so well this season, DeSmith is a strong fantasy play when he's in the blue paint.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Slated to start Saturday

DeSmith is coming off a 37-save performance in a 4-3 victory over Edmonton on Oct. 14. This is his first season with the Canucks after spending the previous five with the Penguins. DeSmith posted a mark of 15-16-4 in 2022-23 with a 3.17 GAA and a .905 save percentage. He faces the Panthers team that only has 11 goals through four games.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Makes 37 saves in win
DeSmith stopped 37 of 40 shots in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Oilers.
Edmonton was aggressive early, but DeSmith was able to limit the damage to one goal in the first period. The Oilers tallied twice on the power play in the second, but the Canucks went ahead for good with Sam Lafferty's goal in the third. DeSmith got the nod with Thatcher Demko (illness) evidently not quite 100 percent. The 32-year-old DeSmith figures to hold down a backup role this year, though a performance like Saturday's could help him carve out a slightly larger share of playing time.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Set to start Saturday
DeSmith is slated to start on the road against Edmonton on Saturday, per David Quadrelli of Canucks Army.
DeSmith stopped all five shots he faced in 11:46 of ice time in Wednesday's 8-1 victory over the Oilers. He entered the contest in the third period because Thatcher Demko was dealing with an illness. DeSmith had a 15-16-4 record, 3.17 GAA and .905 save percentage in 38 contests last season.... See More ... See Less

DeSmith stopped all five shots he faced in relief of Thatcher Demko (illness) in Wednesday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.
DeSmith played 11:46 in the third period after Demko left the game with a flu bug. This was likely a bit earlier than expected for DeSmith's Canucks debut, but he passed the test. He's set to serve in a backup role this year after posting a 3.17 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 38 appearances with the Penguins a year ago.... See More ... See Less
