Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Plays well in season-ending loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko stopped 33 of 34 shots in a 3-0 loss to the Golden Knights in Friday's Game 7. The last two goals were empty-netters.

Demko's shutout streak reached 138:40, dating back to Game 5, but Shea Theodore beat him five seconds into a Vegas power play in the third period. It's through no fault of Demko's that the Canucks' season ended Friday -- he stopped 128 of the 130 shots he faced in parts of four games during the series. At one point, the San Diego native made 98 straight saves. His strong playoff performance could give the Canucks something to ponder in the offseason, as the 24-year-old could be ready to take over the starting gig in 2020-21.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Tending twine Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will draw the start in Friday's Game 7 showdown with Vegas, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Demko has been nothing short of incredible over the last two games. With the Canucks facing a 3-1 series deficit, the 24-year-old won back-to-back contests, stopping a combined 90-of-91 shots. He'll need one more big performance to help Vancouver pull off a historic postseason comeback.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Avoids elimination again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko posted a 48-save shutout in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 6.

Demko has been lights-out since taking over starting duties for the injured Jacob Markstrom (groin). In two games, both wins, Demko has made 90 saves on 91 shots to help the Canucks tie the series at three games apiece. He's been busy, but he'll likely have to make a quick turnaround to be ready for Friday's Game 7.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Back in crease Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko will draw the start for Thursday's Game 6 showdown against the Golden Knights, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Demko absolutely dominated filling in for the injured Jacob Markstrom (groin) in Game 5, stopping 42 of 43 shots en route to the victory in his first career playoff start.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Shines in first playoff start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko made 42 saves on 43 shots in a 2-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 5 on Tuesday.

Demko's first career playoff start came with the Canucks' season on the line. He was tested heavily, but the 24-year-old was up to the challenge. Demko previously played 8:26 in Game 1 versus the Golden Knights, stopping five shots. He had a 3.06 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 27 appearances during the regular season. Should Jacob Markstrom (groin) remain out, Demko would likely start Thursday's Game 6.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Will start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko, as expected, will guard the crease against the Golden Knights for Tuesday's Game 5, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

Demko will take over between the pipes since Jacob Markstrom is reportedly dealing with a lower-body issue. It will be Demko's first career playoff start.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Expected to start Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko is expected to start Tuesday's Game 5 versus Vegas, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 AM reports.

Jacob Markstrom is dealing with a lower-body issue, so if he's unable to go as expected, Demko will get call between the pipes for Tuesday's must-win contest. In 27 appearances during the regular season, the 24-year-old backstop went 13-10-2 with a 3.06 GAA and .905 save percentage. In his one substitute outing during the postseason, Demko stopped all five shots he faced.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Makes brief relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demko stopped all five shots he faced in relief of Jacob Markstrom in Sunday's 5-0 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 1.

Demko came into the contest and played 8:26 after Markstrom was pulled from the contest. It was Demko's first appearance in the playoffs this year. It's unclear if head coach Travis Green will stick with Markstrom or give Demko a start for Tuesday's Game 2, but Demko has just 38 total appearances in his career.

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.
