Stats reflect time with the Canucks only. This season will be pivotal for each Canuck goaltender to solidify their future with the club. Going forward, they’ll need to improve their own-zone defence to ascend to the NHL’s group of elite teams: The Michigan Kid already has people whispering he may be the best skater Vancouver hockey has ever seen. Vancouver had been rolling with the tandem of Markstrom and Anders Nilsson for the past few seasons with varying results. His game is all about skating the puck into dangerous attacking areas.

In a year without COVID-19, he’d be looking at a solid raise. They, however, should sign another goalie to an NHL deal and then figure out the AHL situation from there. With that in mind, we’ll start by looking at the goaltending position and how all the pieces will align in the organization. It was not until six years after his draft Miller became a full-time NHL goaltender. It is a reasonable approach for the future and is only being trashed the the person(s) who trash everything 1915 posts. It will be interesting to see how the workload is spread out between the two goalies and how quickly DiPietro can get up to speed. Or if he’s playing so well he’s forcing tough game-by-game selection against Markstrom. And I meant if Demko looks like the real deal you trade Markstrom, but no way to edit that……. He was stellar in the post-season as well.

[11] After ending their season-opening two-game road trip with a 3–0 loss to the Calgary Flames, the team returned home for their October 9 home opener against the Los Angeles Kings, the same team the Canucks hosted in their inaugural game exactly 49 years earlier. The Canucks could go after an older UFA goaltender to mentor Demko and trade Markstrom this summer or go after a big-time fish like Sergei Bobrovsky. He backstopped the North Division in the 2018 AHL All-Star Game, while getting his first taste with the Canucks in earning a 5-4 overtime win in a March 31, 2018 call-up against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Elias Pettersson’s points per … We apologize, but this video has failed to load. It’s likely that Canucks’ fans won’t see him in a uniform, Comets or Canucks, for at least four more years, so he’s a ways away. Still young and has proven well when the injuries hit hard. Good stats and he passes my eye test, he has good positioning, technique, recovery, and reflexes. If Markstrom has really figured it out, Benning will need to decide between keeping Markstrom as the No.1 or Demko next season, even if Demko (UFA in 4 years) won’t be ready for another year or two. Signed for depth, Fantenberg didn’t play for the first two months of the season. If you don't see it please check your junk folder.

‡Denotes player was traded mid-season. I agree its the best move.
