Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Timeline still unclear
Demko (lower body) could be out another three weeks, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Canucks GM Patrik Allvin said that it's "hard to give an exact timeline." Demko was initially supposed to miss around six weeks but the latest update could push that to around 11 total weeks since his injury in early December. The 27-year-old was 3-10-2 with a brutal 3.93 GAA prior to the injury.... See More ... See Less

More information on his status should surface prior to Saturday's game versus the Coyotes.... See More ... See Less

Demko is 3-9-2 with a 3.81 GAA and .885 save percentage in 14 games this season. His struggles have continued lately with him allowing eight goals over his last two contests. Florida has the 12th-ranked offense with 3.35 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Gets overtime win
Demko allowed three goals on 35 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sharks.
Demko had a good first two periods before showing some shakiness in the third, but the Canucks' offense kept things even. This was Demko's second win in his last three outings, but Spencer Martin has won three starts in a row to generate a challenge for the starting role in Vancouver. The 26-year-old Demko now has a 3-9-2 record with a 3.81 GAA and an .885 save percentage through 14 games. The Canucks open a homestand Tuesday versus the Capitals.... See More ... See Less

Demko will be stationed between the pipes in San Jose on Sunday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Demko was tagged with five goals on 38 shots in his last outing. The 26-year-old is now 2-9-2 with an unsightly 3.88 GAA and .883 save percentage through 13 appearances. He's 1-4-1 with a somewhat more tolerable .903 save percentage at home this season.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Unravels in third period
Demko allowed five goals on 38 shots in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Golden Knights.
The Canucks' offense had a three-goal burst early in the third period to pull ahead 4-2, but Demko gave it all back almost as fast. It's the latest in a season full of multi-goal collapses for the 26-year-old, who continues to struggle behind a defense that gives up 33.5 shots per game, the 10th-highest mark in the league. Demko is now at 2-9-2 with a 3.87 GAA and an .883 save percentage in 13 starts. He started consecutive games for the first time since late October, but with this ugly loss, Demko figures to resume a fairly even split of time with Spencer Martin.... See More ... See Less

Demko is coming off a 37-save performance in Friday's 4-1 win over Los Angeles. The victory snapped his four-game (0-3-1) losing skid.

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Finally has a strong start
Demko stopped 37 of 38 shots in a 4-1 win against Los Angeles on Friday.
It was Demko's best start of the 2022-23 campaign, but he hadn't set the bar high. He allowed at least three goals in all of his other starts this season. Even after Friday's performance, he's just 2-8-2 with a 3.77 GAA and .884 save percentage in 12 games. At least this win is something for him to build off.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Suffers road defeat
Demko turned aside 27 of 31 shots during Sunday's 5-2 loss to the host Bruins.

Miller tied the game at 1-1 midway through the first period. Demko entered Sunday with a 4.01 GAA and .874 save percentage, and the loss dropped his record to 1-8-2.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Starting Sunday
Demko will be between the pipes on the road against Boston on Sunday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Demko will get the second half of Vancouver's back-to-back after Spencer Martin played in Saturday's loss to Toronto. It has been a tough start to the year for the 26-year-old netminder, as Demko has a 1-7-2 record to go with a 4.01 GAA and an .874 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Posts yet another dud
Demko surrendered five goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Montreal.
Demko's nightmare season continues, as this result dropped his record to 1-7-2. He has been tagged for at least three goals in every game this season, but this was actually only the second time that Demko's allowed more than four. It's hard for Vancouver to justify continuing to start Demko over Spencer Martin considering Martin has yet to suffer a regulation loss in 10 starts as a member of the Canucks, including four this season....

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Set to start Wednesday
Demko is expected to start on the road against Montreal on Wednesday.
Demko has a 1-6-2 record, 3.90 GAA and .879 save percentage in nine contests this season. He still hasn't held an opponent to less than three goals in a single game in 2022-23. Montreal has the 27th-ranked offense at 2.77 goals per game, so perhaps Demko will finally be able to end his early season slump.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Squanders lead, loses in shootout
Demko surrendered three goals on 30 shots in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Predators.
In a battle of two teams that have struggled early on, the Canucks got off to a good start with a 3-0 lead through one period. The Predators tied it at 3-3 early in the third before Demko gave up a goal to Matt Duchene in the shootout to complete the collapse. This result dropped Demko to 1-6-2 with a 3.90 GAA and an .879 save percentage through nine appearances. He has yet to give up fewer than three goals in a game. Demko's only win of the year came on the road, so it might be a good sign that the Canucks begin a five-game road trip Tuesday in Ottawa, though a pair of back-to-back sets makes it unlikely Demko will see more than three starts during the trip....

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: First off ice Saturday
Demko was the first netminder off the ice, according to Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650, indicating he will defend the home net against Nashville on Saturday.
Demko is off to a forgettable start at 1-6-1 and his peripherals are no better, as he has a 4.06 GAA and an .876 save percentage. Demko will face the Predators, who have scored 2.73 goals per game this season, going 4-6-1.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Shelled in loss
Demko allowed four goals on 36 shots in a 5-2 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.
Demko continues to struggle this season, having secured just one win in eight contests. Additionally, the 26-year-old San Diego native has allowed four or more goals in six of those eight games, as well. Despite the netminder's struggles, Demko is unlikely to concede the starting job to Spencer Martin any time soon.... See More ... See Less
