Canucks' Matt Irwin: Sent back down

Irwin has yet to see any NHL action this season after scoring five points in 61 games with Washington last year. The 36-year-old has two points in 13 AHL appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Brock Boeser: Collects helper
Boeser registered an assist in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Boeser has four goals and an assist over his last three games, following a span in which he had just one helper over five contests. The 26-year-old winger is at 17 tallies, 27 points, 66 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 24 appearances this season. Boeser probably won't shoot 25.8 percent over the full campaign, but his top-six spot in a strong offense should allow him to sustain a career year.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' J.T. Miller: Registers helper in loss
Miller produced an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Miller set up Andrei Kuzmenko's tally in the third period, which was all the Canucks could put on the scoreboard. With six assists over his last three games, Miller has eased the concern over his season-worst four-game goal drought. The 30-year-old has played a starring role in a strong offense with 36 points, 56 shots on net, 49 hits, 19 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a plus-10 rating over 24 appearances this season.... See More ...

Canucks' Andrei Kuzmenko: Deposits only goal in loss
Kuzmenko scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Kuzmenko has had an eventful week or so -- he was scratched twice and endured a four-game point drought before his goal Thursday. The 27-year-old winger ended the contest with 17:27 of ice time, his highest mark of November, and the goal has to help in regards to getting out of head coach Rick Tocchet's doghouse. Kuzmenko is up to four tallies, 15 points, 32 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 21 contests. Given his scoring capabilities, fantasy managers would be shrewd to check to see if an impatient rival cut ties with the winger during his recent stint in the press box.... See More ... See Less
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' Nikita Zadorov: Dealt to Vancouver
Zadorov was traded from the Flames to the Canucks on Thursday in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2024 and a third-round pick in 2026.
Zadorov reportedly wanted a trade out of Calgary, where he's been stuck in a bottom-four role this year, and now he's gotten his wish. He'll land in an excellent situation with the Canucks, where he can be penciled into a second-pairing role once he joins the team. Zadorov has picked up six points, 29 shots on net, 41 hits, 19 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a minus-6 rating over 21 outings with the Flames this year, which was his third season with the team. Jordan Oesterle should see more time with the Flames going forward, while Mark Friedman and Noah Juulsen figure to lose playing time for the Canucks.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Ilya Mikheyev: Will play Thursday
Mikheyev (lower body) will be in action versus Vegas on Thursday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Mikheyev was forced to leave Tuesday's tilt with the Ducks after registering just 13:20 of ice time but appears to be no worse for the wear. The 29-year-old winger is on pace to reach the 40-point threshold for the first time in his career. Despite zero power-play points, Mikheyev continues to see minutes with the No. 2 unit....

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' Tyler Myers: Puts up helper in win
Myers notched an assist, two hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.
Myers has produced six helpers over his last nine contests. He's played fairly well this season, though not to the level of his fellow Canucks blueliners Quinn Hughes and Filip Hronek. Myers has 11 points, 22 shots on net, 37 hits, 38 blocked shots, 22 PIM and a plus-11 rating through 23 appearances while mainly operating in a bottom-four role.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Filip Hronek: Manages assist in win
Hronek recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.
Hronek extended his point streak to four games (one goal, four assists) when he set up Brock Boeser's first-period tally. The 26-year-old Hronek continues to cruise at a point-per-game pace with two goals and 21 helpers over 23 contests. He's added 28 blocked shots, 50 shots on net, 19 hits and a plus-14 rating, providing solid category coverage for fantasy managers.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' J.T. Miller: Supplies two assists
Miller notched two assists, three shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.
Miller has five helpers over his last two contests. He assisted on both of Brock Boeser's tallies, which opened and closed the scoring in Tuesday's victory. Miller is up to 13 goals, 22 assists, 53 shots on net, 46 hits, 19 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a plus-11 rating through 23 contests, providing well-rounded production that is sure to play well in most fantasy formats. He's on pace for a career year, which could see him top the 100-point mark for the first time if he can sustain his offense throughout the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Elias Pettersson: Wraps in game-winning goal
Pettersson scored a goal on three shots, added two hits and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.
Pettersson scored on a wraparound in the first minute of the third period, and that goal was the game-winner. The center had produced just two assists over his last five contests since his last goal Nov. 16 versus the Flames. He's up to nine tallies, 30 points, 54 shots on net, 30 hits, 18 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 23 outings this season.... See More ... See Less
