  • Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Will represent Sweden at Worlds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/18) Nilsson will play for Sweden in the IIHF World Championships in Denmark.

    Nilsson had a rough season with the Canucks, as he posted a brutal 7-14-4 record, .901 save percentage and 3.44 GAA, so it's quite the honor that his name is being called for Sweden. The 28-year-old won a bronze medal for Sweden in 2014 when he recorded a stellar .937 save percentage and 1.54 GAA in nine outings.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Ends 2017-18 on seven-game losing streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/18) Nilsson made 31 saves on 33 shots, but he still ended the season on a sour note with a loss in a shootout to the Oilers on Saturday night.

    The veteran goaltender finished this season to forget with an .874 save percentage during a seven-game losing streak. The last time he won was Feb. 17. Saturday's performance enabled Nilsson to push his save percentage above .900, but just barely at .901, and his GAA finished at an embarrassing 3.44. He also went just 7-15-3, and therefore, shouldn't be on many fantasy radars heading into 2018-19.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Returns to practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/18) Nilsson (illness) was back at practice Monday, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

    With Nilsson once again healthy, the Canucks shipped Thatcher Demko back to the minors. It's unclear if the 21-year-old Nilsson will defend the cage in any of Vancouver's final three games or if coach Travis Green will exclusively use Jacob Markstrom between the pipes.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Still feels sick

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/18) Nilsson (illness) won't start against the Blue Jackets on Saturday as originally planned, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet650 reports.

    Reading between the lines, Nilsson probably won't dress for this next contest since he's under the weather and the Canucks want to give Thatcher Demko the nod for his first NHL game. Of course, traditional starter Jacob Markstrom is also in the picture, but he's already been rolled out 30 times in 2018.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Status threatened by illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/18) Nilsson is suffering from an illness ahead of Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

    Nilsson's potential absence prompted the Canucks to recall prospect netminder Thatcher Demko from AHL Utica on Friday. Given the nature of Nilsson's unavailability, he should be ready to roll again when the team hosts the Golden Knights on Tuesday if he isn't feeling up to it for Saturday's matchup. Either way, Jacob Markstrom remains the primary netminder for the Canucks as the regular season winds down.
