Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Under siege against Vegas
Demko stopped 40 of 44 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Vegas doubled up Vancouver in shots, and Demko wasn't able to be the difference in this contest. He's allowed 15 goals over his last six games, giving up exactly four goals in each of his three losses in that span. The American netminder slipped to 11-6-0 with a 2.22 GAA and a .926 save percentage through 17 contests. The Canucks' next game is in Calgary on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: In goal against Knights
Demko will get the starting nod at home versus Vegas on Thursday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Demko has been performing well lately with a 3-1-0 record and 1.75 GAA in his last four contests. Historically, the netminder has struggled against the Golden Knights, going 2-3-1 with an .891 save percentage and 3.71 GAA in seven career matchups. Still, Demko is sporting career-best numbers in GAA (2.10) and save percentage (.928) this season, so he may fare better this time around.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Earns win over Ducks
Demko stopped 30 of 31 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.
Demko was under pressure for much of the first two periods, but he kept the Canucks in control until they responded in the third. This was the 27-year-old's second win in a row, something he hadn't done since his six-game winning streak form Oct. 24-Nov. 6. The American netminder is up to an 11-5-0 record with a 2.10 GAA and a .928 save percentage through 16 starts. Those ratios are by far the best in his career, but the Canucks are playing good hockey to make life easier on Demko between the pipes. A tough matchup versus the Golden Knights on Thursday is next on the schedule.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Set to start Tuesday
Demko was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Thomas Drance of The Athletic reports, indicating he will start Monday's home game against Anaheim.
Demko is coming off a 23-save effort in Friday's 5-1 win over Seattle. In 15 games this campaign, he has posted a 10-5-0 record with two shutouts, a 2.18 GAA and a .925 save percentage. The Ducks sit 27th in the league this season with 2.76 goals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Sharp in Seattle
Demko stopped 23 of 24 shots in Friday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.
The Kraken didn't offer much of a challenge, and Demko turned aside all of the team's shots except Tye Kartye's goal in the second period. This was Demko's first win over the Kraken this season -- he allowed four goals on 26 shots in a loss last Saturday at home. The 27-year-old goalie is up to 10-5-0 with a 2.18 GAA and a .925 save percentage through 15 starts. He'll likely get Saturday off with the Canucks visiting the Sharks, so Demko's next outing is likely to be at home Tuesday versus the Ducks.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Guarding cage Friday
Demko will get the starting nod in Seattle on Friday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic reports.
Demko has struggled over his last five starts, registering a 3.41 GAA and an .872 save percentage while going 2-3-0 during that span. Prior to that, he had rattled off six consecutive wins.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Surrenders four goals in loss
Demko gave up four goals on 24 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Avalanche. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.
It was an even game through two periods, but Riley Tufte and Cale Makar tallied against Demko in the third and the Canucks' offense went quiet. This is Demko's third loss in his last four outings, and he's given up four goals in each of those defeats. He's now at a 9-5-0 record with a 2.26 GAA and a .923 save percentage over 14 starts. It's possibly a little regression from his hot start to the season, but the 27-year-old remains a strong play, especially for his next start against either the Kraken on Friday or the Sharks on Saturday....

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Gets starting nod
Demko will protect the road goal versus the Avalanche on Wednesday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Demko was sharp in a win over the Sharks on Monday, stopping 27 of 28 shots in a 3-1 win. Demko didn't play against the Avalanche last year, so he'll be facing one of his toughest assignments of the 2023-24 campaign with little recent exposure to the opponent.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Cruises to ninth win
Demko stopped 27 of 28 shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.
Demko's shutout bid was broken up by a Tomas Hertl goal early in the third period. After allowing 12 goals over his previous three outings, Demko was sharp against a weak offense to get his play back on track. He's up to 9-4-0 with a 2.12 GAA and a .929 save percentage through 13 starts. This was the first time he'd started consecutive contests since Nov. 4-6, though a pair of back-to-backs in that stretch likely played a part in the workload distribution. The Canucks begin a three-game road trip in Colorado on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Leaves ice first Monday
Demko was the first goalie to exit the ice Monday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic reports, indicating he'll patrol the blue paint against the Sharks at home.
Demko has been struggling of late, going 1-2-0 with 12 goals allowed over his last three outings. The netminder's slump follows a six-game winning streak during which he posted a pair of shutouts. Interestingly, Demko's recent dip in form comes as he finds himself sharing every other start with Casey DeSmith over the last six games. It's possible Demko would benefit from a heavier workload to allow him to get in a groove.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Yields four goals in loss
Demko stopped 22 of 26 shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Kraken.
Demko had some big saves, but the Canucks were uncharacteristically loose -- a bad line change, an odd deflection and a turnover led to three of the Kraken's goals. This was Demko's second loss over six appearances in November. He's now at 8-4-0 with a 2.22 GAA and a .926 save percentage. Casey DeSmith has seen more time of late thanks to back-to-backs, but the Canucks don't have games on consecutive days until Friday and Saturday in Seattle and San Jose, respectively.... See More ...

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Slated to start Saturday
Demko was the first goaltender off the ice at morning practice and will defend the home crease versus Seattle on Saturday, according to Thomas Drance of The Athletic.
Demko is having an outstanding season as he is 8-3-0 with a sizzling 2.04 GAA and an eye-popping .932 save percentage. He has won seven of his last eight games and was sensational, save for a 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs in which he made only 17 saves.

He's up to 8-3-0 with a 2.04 GAA and a .932 save percentage. He'll likely watch from the bench Thursday as the Canucks visit the Flames, with Casey DeSmith expected to get the start.... See More ...

Demko is set to start in Wednesday's home game versus the Islanders, per Jeff Paterson of The Hockey News.
Demko has a 7-3-0 record, 1.96 GAA and .935 save percentage in 10 contests this campaign. As dominant as he's been, Demko struggled in his last start Saturday, allowing five goals on 22 shots in a loss to Toronto. The Islanders are tied for 30th offensively with 2.36 goals per game, so this should be a good opportunity for the goaltender to rebound.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: First loss in almost month
Demko made 17 saves in a 5-2 loss to Toronto on Saturday.
The Leafs were outshot 12-4 and outscored 2-1 in the first period by the Canucks. However, Toronto rebounded with four unanswered goals following the first intermission. Demko wasn't awful by any means. Instead, the Leafs played with a different urgency than they had in weeks, and the Canucks couldn't answer the bell. The loss was Demko's first since Oct. 19....

The 27-year-old improved to 7-2-0 with a 1.61 GAA and a .948 save percentage through nine starts this season.
