Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Scores game-winner Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen scored a goal in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 6.

Virtanen tallied at 2:50 of the first period, and Thatcher Demko posted a 48-save shutout to make it stand. The Canucks added three more goals in the third period to stretch the lead. Virtanen also took a hard hit from Brayden McNabb late in the third period, but he was able to stay on the bench. After the game, Virtanen said he was just winded, per Farhan Lalji of TSN reports. Through 15 games, Virtanen has three points, 15 shots on net and 35 hits, mostly playing in a bottom-six role.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: One of each in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Blues in Game 5.

Virtanen started on the fourth line, but saw most of his time with J.T. Miller and Elias Pettersson in the contest. That trio combined for two goals and six points. Virtanen hasn't been much of a force on offense -- these were his first two points in eight postseason outings. The 24-year-old winger has racked up 21 PIM, 13 hits and a plus-1 rating.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Returning Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's Game 2 versus the Wild, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Virtanen missed two games with the injury, but appears set to return to action Tuesday. Virtanen had a career-high 36 points in 69 contests during the regular season. It's unclear who will come out of the lineup to make room for the 23-year-old winger, but head coach Travis Green indicated there are some minor bumps among some of his players.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen (undisclosed) is listed as a scratch for Sunday's contest against the Wild, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Virtanen also missed an exhibition game last Wednesday, but it's unclear why he's out. Until an update is available, he's considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's tilt with Minnesota.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen (undisclosed) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's exhibition game against the Jets, Irfaan Gaffar reports.

Canucks' Jake Virtanen: Earns helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virtanen picked up an assist, a team-leading six shots and two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks.

It was a spirited effort from Virtanen, who couldn't solve Coyotes goalie Darcy Kuemper on his own, but set up Tanner Pearson for a goal at 6:16 of the third period. Virtanen has a career-high 36 points to go with 144 shots, 97 hits and 39 PIM in 66 games this season. His role can be inconsistent at times -- the Canucks have a deep forward group, which occasionally shuffles Virtanen to the bottom six despite his solid production.

Virtanen set up Tyler Myers for the opening goal, and the two swapped roles as Virtanen's tally stretched the Canucks' lead to 3-0 seven minutes later. The winger added four shots on goal and two hits. The 23-year-old has five power-play points this year -- all of which have come in the last seven contests. Virtanen is up to 23 points in 40 contests in 2019-20, just two shy of his career-high 25 points from last year.
