Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Sets new best for single-game saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko stopped 45 of 49 shots in a 5-4 shootout win over the Islanders.

Demko was kept busy throughout the game, but he settled in over the final 20 minutes of play and then stopped all three of the Islanders' shootout attempts. The 24-year-old goalie improved to 13-10-2 with a 3.06 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 27 appearances this year.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Slated to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver, Demko was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, which suggests he'll get the start in goal in Tuesday's home game versus the Islanders.

Demko has struggled recently, compiling a 1-4-0 record while posting a sub-par 3.05 GAA and .897 save percentage through his last five appearances. He'll attempt to get back on track in a home matchup with a free-falling Islanders club that's gone 0-3-3 in its last six games.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Bested by Blue Jackets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko gave up two goals on 22 shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Demko has lost four of his last five starts, although Sunday was the first time he allowed fewer than three goals in that span. The 24-year-old goalie dipped to 12-10-2 with a 3.03 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 26 appearances. Expect Demko to continue to see most of the starts with Jacob Markstrom (lower body) out.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Between pipes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will patrol the home crease for Sunday's home clash versus Columbus.

Demko has been decent in his past five starts, going 2-3-0 along with a 3.22 GAA and .902 save percentage over that span. He'll draw a solid matchup against a Blue Jackets offense that ranks 27th in the league in goals per game this season (2.58).

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Surrenders three goals in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko allowed three goals on 32 shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche.

Demko snapped a three-game losing streak, but he allowed at least three goals for the fifth straight outing. The 24-year-old goalie improved to 12-9-2 with a 3.07 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 25 appearances. It's hard to recommend Demko for fantasy purposes based on his recent performances.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Facing Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will guard the cage during Friday's home clash with Colorado.

Demko played petty well in his last start Wednesday against Arizona, stopping 36 of 39 shots, but he ultimately suffered his 11th defeat of the season due to inadequate goal support. He'll try to snap his three-game losing streak in a tough home matchup with an Avalanche squad that's 23-9-2 on the road this year.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Suffers loss versus Coyotes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko gave up three goals on 39 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Coyotes on Wednesday.

Demko didn't get much help from his defense, as two of the three goals he surrendered saw the Coyotes with plenty of room to make plays. It's still a third straight loss for Demko, who fell to 11-9-2 with a 3.08 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 24 appearances. He's not doing much to fill the void left by Jacob Markstrom, who remains sidelined with a lower-body injury.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Gets starting nod against 'Yotes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will be between the pipes for Wednesday's home matchup with Arizona.

Demko's performance has left something to be desired of late, as he posted a 1-3-0 record and 3.73 GAA in his last five outings. With Jacob Markstrom (lower body) still on the shelf, Demko should continue to see the bulk of the workload, though Louis Domingue figures to get a few looks in the crease as well.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Needs to improve early game focus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko made 26 saves in a 4-2 loss to Toronto on Saturday. He allowed three goals.

Demko is a talented goalie, but he really needs to sharpen his focus to start games. Once again, he allowed two quick goals to put his team down. Demko tightened things up, but his mates couldn't get enough goals to earn him the win. He's super confident and competitive, so he didn't let the early wobble get him down. But the Orcas need him to fix that part of his game or they'll be a quick out come playoff time.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Stopping pucks Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will tend the road twine Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Despite his recent struggles -- he has an .879 save percentage and 3.63 GAA over five appearances in February -- Demko will make a third straight start with Jacob Markstrom (lower body) out long term. Although the Maple Leafs have had some issues lately, they've still won three of four games and averaged four goals per contest in that stretch.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Takes bad loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko allowed four goals on 24 shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Ottawa.

Half of the damage against Demko was done by Bobby Ryan, who also scored into an empty net to complete his hat trick. The 24-year-old Demko still hasn't found consistency on a start-to-start basis and has just one win and 15 goals allowed in four starts over the past month. It could be a bumpy ride for Vancouver while Jacob Markstrom (knee) is on the shelf.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Starting in Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will guard the cage during Thursday's road game versus the Senators, TSN Radio Vancouver reports.

Demko played well in his last start Tuesday against the Canadiens, denying 37 of 40 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime victory. The 24-year-old American will attempt to pick up his 12th win of the season in a favorable road matchup with a struggling Senators club that's lost four straight games.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Prevails over Canadiens in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko stopped 37 of 40 shots during Tuesday's 4-3 win over Montreal.

Demko picked up his first win since Jan. 27 and now owns an 11-6-2 record across 23 appearances in 2019-20. With Jacob Markstrom (knee) set to miss multiple weeks, Vancouver's crease belongs to Demko for the foreseeable future, and the youngster is off to a nice start as the Canucks' preferred option in goal until Markstrom is ready to return.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Gets starting nod Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canucks general manager Jim Benning said that Demko would start in the net Tuesday in Montreal, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

With the Canucks announcing Monday that top goaltender Jacob Markstrom (knee) is in line miss multiple weeks, Demko is expected to take on a heavy workload for Vancouver over the final month of the regular season. The 24-year-old has rolled to a 10-6-2 record over 20 appearances in 2019-20, but his ratios (3.03 GAA, .905 save percentage) leave much to be desired.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Bested by visiting Ducks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko allowed five goals on 28 shots in a 5-1 loss to Anaheim on Sunday.

Demko was making his first start since Feb. 2, and it didn't go so well for the 24-year-old, as Demko was victimized for five goals by the league's 29th-ranked offense. Perhaps a bit rusty, Demko never looked right in Sunday's game and will likely serve as Vancouver's backup Wednesday against the Wild. Though not confirmed, Jacob Markstrom figures to start versus Minnesota.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Back in net Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will draw the home start for Sunday's game against Anaheim, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

Demko has been solid in his past five starts, going 3-1-1 along with a 2.76 GAA and .915 save percentage in that span. He'll draw a great matchup against a Ducks offense that ranks 29th in the league in goals per contest this campaign (2.47).

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Falls in shootout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko allowed three goals on 32 shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Demko tasted defeat for the first time in three games. The 24-year-old has a 10-5-2 record with a 2.92 GAA and a .909 save percentage in 18 appearances. The California native will likely continue to see backup-level duties behind Jacob Markstrom.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Looking to stay hot Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will get the starting nod for Sunday's matinee in Carolina, Jeff Paterson of TSN1040 reports.

The Canucks will turn to Demko on the second leg of a back-to-back as they look to stretch their winning streak to six games. The 24-year-old goalie was in net for two of those previous five wins, allowing just a goal apiece to the Sharks and Blues. He'll look to keep rolling against a Hurricanes team that's been a tad better than average offensively with 3.12 goals per game.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Sparkling effort against Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko turned aside 36 of 37 shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Blues.

Demko was certainly kept busy by the defending champs, but he was up to the task. A pair of J.T. Miller tallies provided all the buffer Demko needed. The 24-year-old goalie improved to 10-5-1 with a 2.93 GAA and a .909 save percentage in 17 appearances. He's started the last two games on each end of the Canucks' bye week, but expect to see Jacob Markstrom in the crease Wednesday versus the Sharks.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Garners first start after break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will get the home start Monday versus the Blues.

Jacob Markstrom wasn't playing poorly before the All-Star break, so we shouldn't read into it too much that Demko is starting immediately following the lengthy break. The 24-year-old Demko has posted a .904 save percentage and 9-5-1 record, and he has a tough matchup on tap. The Blues are 13-7-4 on the road, where they've averaged 3.13 goals per game this year.
