  • Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Shelled for seven Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/17) Nilsson allowed seven goals on 48 shots in a 7-1 loss to the Predators on Wednesday.

    The Canucks hung Nilsson out to dry in not yanking him once this game got out of hand, much to the chagrin of anybody who used him in their fantasy lineup. The 27-year-old had a .921 save percentage heading into this tilt, but on the other hand, in five of his last six outings he's allowed three goals or more.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Gets starting nod for Wednesday's match

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/13/17) Nilsson will guard the goal in Wednesday's home game against the Predators.

    Nilsson has been pretty good in limited action this campaign, compiling a 6-3-1 record while posting a rock-solid .921 save percentage in 10 appearances. The Swedish netminder will look to stay sharp and get back in the win column Wednesday in a home matchup with a Nashville club that's averaging a below-average 2.57 goals per game on the road this season, 22nd in the NHL.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Comes up short against Flames

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/10/17) Nilsson turned away 31 of 34 shots in Saturday's loss to Calgary.

    It looked like the Canucks were going to earn at least a point until Sam Bennett beat Nilsson 18:50 into the final frame to break a 2-2 tie. The Swedish netminder has been average in 10 appearances this season, turning in a few great performances, but also some pretty poor ones. With a 6-3-1 record and a .921 save percentage, you can certainly do worse when searching for a spot start.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Put to work Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/17) Nilsson will suit up as the road starter versus the Flames on Saturday night.

    The Swedish backstop's peripheral numbers (2.68 GAA, .922 save percentage) are nearly identical to the ones he had as a member of the Sabres last season, only he's winning at a much faster clip. In fact, Nilsson's already reached six victories through nine showings, and his next draw comes against a Flames offense that only ranks 21st in scoring. All things considered, he makes for a decent streaming option in daily formats.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Earns victory against Nashville

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/1/17) Nilsson stopped 29 of 32 shots in Thursday's win over the Predators.

    Vancouver showed no hesitation turning back to Nilsson after he was burned for five goals in his last start against the Islanders. The 27-year-old outdueled Pekka Rinne on Thursday and advances to 6-2-1 on the season with a .922 save percentage. He appears to have the upper hand on Jacob Markstrom right now and has arguably been the better goaltender, so he might be worth a look. With that being said, however, the Canucks have been up-and-down this season and consistent victories may be hard to come by.
