Top Canucks News

  • Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Struggling to produce

    Pouliot has just a goal and two assists on the year.

    Pouliot posted career highs in all offensive categories last season, including 22 points, more than triple his previous best (seven). He anchors the top power-play unit, which has been potent at 18.5 percent, good for 15th in the league. More points are bound to come should he stay there, but it's looking unlikely he'll match last season's numbers, as he's currently on pace for just 12 points.

  • Canucks' Brendan Leipsic: Posts pair of points

    Leipsic picked up a goal and assist in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders.

    This is Leipsic's first multi-point game since last March, oddly enough in a game also against the Islanders. He was moved up to Bo Horvat's line and could see an uptick in production as a result. However, he had just three points on the year prior to Tuesday, so his offensive abilities are limited.

  • Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Loses second straight

    Markstrom yielded five goals on 34 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday.

    This road trip, particularly the state of New York, hasn't been too kind to the 28-year-old. He played well against the Rangers on Monday night, but Markstrom took a loss and also started in a shootout defeat in Buffalo on Saturday. On the road trip to the east coast, Markstrom is 1-2-2 with a .891 save percentage. The Canucks have one more road game in Minnesota before returning to British Columbia, but Markstrom will likely love getting home.

  • Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Starting in New York

    Markstrom will guard the cage in Tuesday's road game against the Islanders.

    Markstrom played pretty well in his last appearance Monday against the Rangers, stopping 25 of 27 shots, but he ultimately suffered his fourth loss of the campaign due to a lack of goal support from his teammates. The Swedish goaltender will look to stay sharp and secure his eighth victory of the season in a road matchup with a slumping Islanders team that's lost three consecutive games.

  • Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Makes 25 saves in loss to Rangers

    Markstrom stopped 25 of 27 shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

    He got staked to a 1-0 lead early in the second period, but Markstrom couldn't make it hold up. The 28-year-old continues to log a heavy workload, starting every game since Anders Nilsson (finger) landed on IR in late October, but Markstrom's .892 save percentage over that eight-game stretch suggests it might be time for the Canucks to give journeyman backup Richard Bachman a look instead.

  • Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Will man crease in MSG

    Markstrom will start Monday's road contest in New York.

    Markstrom's last regulation loss came Oct. 27. Since then, the 28-year-old netminder has made six starts and posted a 4-0-2 record. He'll face a Rangers team that's averaging 2.71 goals, fifth worst in the league. On paper, this is a good matchup for the Swedish backstop.

  • Canucks' Tim Schaller: Seeking first goal

    Schaller has no goals and just three assists this season.

    Schaller has been getting time on the first line next to Bo Horvat, but hasn't been able to get involved in the scoring department. He posted a dozen goals and 10 helpers last year, playing in the bottom-six forward group for Boston. He's already played 16 games, and with just three points to show for it, reaching last season's numbers appears to be an unlikely scenario.

  • Canucks' Antoine Roussel: On hot streak

    Roussel has six points in the past six games.

    Roussel isn't known for his scoring, but that's exactly what he's been doing lately. The feisty winger had just a single point in the eight games prior, so don't expect him to sustain this level of offense. He can still be a valuable contributor in leagues that count PIM, hits, and blocks, as he doesn't shy away from the dirty parts of the game.

  • Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Falters late in third

    Markstrom made 34 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to Buffalo on Saturday afternoon.

    He was cruising toward a win late in the third when he allowed two goals in just 40 seconds. Markstrom's 7-3-2 record looks solid, but his 3.24 GAA and .898 save percentage make him a difficult activation in most formats.

  • Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Streak at four games and seven points

    Eriksson extended his point streak to four games (four goals, three assists) with a goal in a 4-3 shootout loss to Buffalo on Saturday.

    He, Marcus Granlund and Bo Horvat are really clicking right now and there's a strong chance Eriksson is sitting out there on your wire. Grab him up and ride this his streak. You can always drop him later when he slows down and/or falls asleep.

  • Canucks' Erik Gudbranson: Streak at five games and six points

    Gudbranson's goal Saturday in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Sabres extended his point streak to five games.

    He has two goals and four assists in that span. Gudbranson brings an edge to his game, so he could be a valuable fantasy asset in leagues that still count PIM. This scoring streak helps increase that value -- there's a place on many rosters for a defender with 30-35 point and 125 PIM potential.

  • Canucks' Brock Boeser: Will miss rest of road trip

    Boeser (groin) is week-to-week with his injury, and even though Canucks coach Travis Green insists the winger "will be fine," Boeser has been ruled out for the next four games.

    The Canucks feel that it's best for Boeser to finish his recovery at home rather than force him into any of the next four road contests. Considering that Vancouver sits atop the Pacific Division standings with a 10-6-1 record, this team can afford to take all the necessary precautions with the showstopping winger, who has accumulated four goals and seven assists through his first 13 games of 2018-19. Boeser will now set his sights on returning next Saturday against the visiting Canadiens.

  • Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Gearing up for matinee

    Markstrom will protect the road net from the Sabres in Saturday's matinee.

    It defies logic, but Markstrom is 7-3-1 with a 3.28 GAA and an .896 save percentage between 11 starts. At this rate, his winning percentage is bound to taper off, even though the Canucks are ranked 10th in scoring at 3.29 goals per contest. Markstrom will now face a Buffalo team that averages 3.06 goals per game -- 20th in the league.
