Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Wins second straight
Markstrom allowed two goals on 36 shots in a 3-2 victory against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.
As is the case with most goaltenders on bad teams, there's been a lot of inconsistency with Markstrom. In his last two games, though, he's been excellent, stopping 56 of 59 shots (.949 save percentage). There's no guarantee he builds upon that, but even still, Markstrom is a decent streaming option if for nothing else but wins. He has won 11 of his 22 starts while posting a .901 save percentage....

Canucks' Troy Stecher: Chipping in offensively
Stecher has two points in his past three games.
Stecher had just a single point in the 13 games prior to these past three, and wound up as a healthy scratch for a game. He's up to nine points in 31 games, while notably carrying a plus-11 rating. His previous two seasons saw him with minus-16 and minus-7 ratings. He should have no trouble topping last season's 11 point output, and will now be helpful in plus-minus for a change....

Canucks' Ben Hutton: Eclipses last year's assist total
Hutton picked up an assist in Sunday's win over the Blues.
Hutton is now up to seven helpers, topping last year's total of six. He has four goals as well, making this a successful bounce-back season for him thus far. He's averaging 21:22 of ice time, nearly a three minute increase from last year. He's on pace for 29 points, which would be a personal best for the 25-year-old.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Adam Gaudette: Set to miss clash with Jackets
Gaudette (illness) won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Columbus.
Gaudette will miss his second straight outing due to his illness, which will force Markus Granlund into the third-line center spot again. Prior to his absence, the 21-year-old Gaudette was stuck in a five-game pointless streak, during which his minutes dropped to 8:08 of ice time per game. If the Massachusetts native can't figure out his game soon, he could find himself down in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Starting in Columbus
Markstrom will guard the goal in Tuesday's road game against the Blue Jackets.
Markstrom was sharp in his last start Sunday against the Blues, turning aside 22 of 23 shots en route to a convincing 6-1 victory. The Swedish netminder will look to stay dialed in and pick up a third straight win in a road matchup with a Blue Jackets team that's averaging 3.64 goals per game at home this campaign, sixth in the NHL....

Canucks' Adam Gaudette: Misses practice with illness
Gaudette (illness) did not practice Monday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
After missing Sunday's game, Gaudette was once again absent from practice and continues to be slowed by an illness. With just four points in 25 games, his absence will go largely unnoticed by the fantasy community. Tim Schaller figures to keep his place in Vancouver's bottom six as long as Gaudette remains out of the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Sven Baertschi: Progressing in recovery
Baertschi (concussion) practiced Monday, but was wearing a non-contact jersey and did not participate in line rushes, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Slowly but surely, Baertschi is taking steps to return from his concussion. However, concussions are tricky, and if Baertschi can't even take contact yet, it seems unlikely he will be returning in the immediate future. You can definitely rule him out for Vancouver's next two games, which are on the road.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Steady in victory
Markstrom allowed just one goal on 23 shots in Sunday's win over the Blues.
Markstrom engaged cruise control and his teammates made his life easier by putting up six goals on the other end of the ice. The Swedish netminder also defeated the Predators on Thursday, giving him consecutive wins for the first time since Nov. 2. After a brutal stretch that consisted of six losses in nine starts, it's good to see Markstrom revert to his winning ways.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Brock Boeser: Records hat trick
Boeser lit the lamp three times during Sunday's win over St. Louis.
This marks the second career hat trick for Boeser, who also had a plus-5 rating and four shots on goal, doing so in just 14:22 of ice time. Boeser is now up to nine goals and eight assists in 19 games, meshing well with rookie center Elias Pettersson. Boeser has had some injury trouble this year (groin) and last (back), but that hasn't hindered his play. He's showing no signs of a sophomore slump after an impressive rookie season.... See More ...

Canucks' Elias Pettersson: Piles up five points
Pettersson tallied a goal and four assists in Sunday's 6-1 victory over the Blues.
This was Pettersson's second five-point performance of his young career, and according to Sportsnet, he became the first Canuck to do so since Alexander Mogilny in the 1995-96 season. Pettersson now has 30 points in 26 games, as well as a commanding 11-point lead in the rookie scoring race. The 2017 fifth overall selection continues to impress and exceed expectations....

Canucks' Adam Gaudette: Feeling ill
Gaudette (illness) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Blues, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
The 22-year-old will miss his second game of the year. He's been stuck in a bottom-six role this year, averaging 10:36 and notching just four points. His absence will allow Tim Schaller to re-enter the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Draws start against Blues
Markstrom will tend the twine in Sunday's road game versus the Blues, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Markstrom is coming off an encouraging win over the Predators where he steered away 26 of 29 shots. That's still just a .897 save percentage but against a top opponent. The Blues are on the other end of the spectrum, as they've struggled lately and scored just four goals in the last three games. He'll be a cheap option in daily fantasy leagues but carries a fair share of risk as well.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Tyler Madden: Leading Northeastern as freshman
Madden scored a goal and chipped in three assists in Northeastern's 7-2 win over Merrimack on Saturday.
Madden also won all nine of his face-off attempts for good measure. A third-round pick of Vancouver this past June, Madden now has 15 points in his first 14 collegiate games. A smart player who excels at the little aspects of the game, Madden's only issue is a lack of foot speed. He has top-six potential for the Canucks if he can clean up his skating stride....

Canucks' Adam Gaudette: Still struggling to produce
Gaudette has just one point in his past 10 games.
Granted, that one point was Gaudette's first career NHL goal, but he has just four points in 25 games this season. He was receiving ample power-play time, but has since been removed from any special teams unit, and has seen his role decrease. Currently the third-line center, he will need to make more of an impact if he's to stay in the lineup once Brandon Sutter returns.... See More ... See Less
