Top Thatcher Demko News

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Ruled out for Game 7

    Head coach Rick Tocchet said Saturday that Demko (knee) will not play in Monday's Game 7 versus the Oilers, Thomas Drance of The Athletic reports.

    Demko was believed to have a chance to return during the second round, but this will eliminate that possibility. The Canucks will instead entrust either Arturs Silovs or Casey DeSmith in a must-win game with a trip to the Western Conference Finals on the line. Demko will have missed 12 straight contests after Monday, and there's been no indication at what point he might be available if the Canucks are able to extend their playoff run.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Still unavailable

    Demko (knee) won't be available for the start of Vancouver's second-round series against Edmonton, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Demko, who is considered week-to-week, sat out the final five contests of the Canucks' first-round series versus Nashville. It remains unclear when he will be available to return. During Demko's absence, Casey DeSmith and Arturs Silovs have shared time between the pipes. The 23-year-old Silovs could make his fourth straight start in Game 1 versus the Oilers on Wednesday.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Travels with team

    Demko (knee) joined the Canucks for their trip to Nashville for Games 3 and 4 despite being labeled week-to-week, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports Thursday.

    Given Demko's week-to-week timeline, his presence on the trip is likely more about being around the team and perhaps helping Casey DeSmith in an off-ice capacity than him potentially returning to action soon. Another update on Demko will likely surface once he's upgraded to day-to-day.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Considered week-to-week

    Demko (undisclosed) is regarded as week-to-week, coach Rick Tocchet told Thomas Drance of The Athletic on Wednesday.

    Demko was a key part of the Canucks' regular-season success, posting a 35-14-2 record, 2.45 GAA and .918 save percentage in 51 contests. He also stopped 20 of 22 shots en route to a 4-2 victory over the Predators in Game 1 on Sunday. The Canucks will likely lean on Casey DeSmith during Demko's absence.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Out Tuesday, considered day-to-day

    Demko is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury and won't play in Tuesday's Game 2 versus the Predators, Canucks rinkside reporter Kate Pettersen reports.

    Demko was solid in Sunday's Game 1, stopping 20 of 22 shots en route to a 4-2 win over Nashville. The good news is Demko's undisclosed injury isn't related to the knee issue that kept him out from March 13-April 13. The bad news is the Canucks will be without their No. 1 netminder for at least one playoff contest and potentially more. Casey DeSmith will take over for Vancouver between the pipes until Demko is ready to return.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Earns Game 1 win

    Demko stopped 20 of 22 shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Predators in Game 1.

    Demko allowed four goals on 65 shots over two games to close the regular season following his return from a knee injury. The 28-year-old was facing a deficit for a large portion of Sunday's game, but the Canucks turned things around in the third period to get the win. He won a career-high 35 games with a 2.45 GAA and a .918 save percentage over 51 regular-season outings, so he's going to be tough for the Predators to solve over a full series.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: First off ahead of Game 1

    Demko was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, according to Thomas Drance of The Athletic, indicating will he patrol the home crease Sunday in Game 1 against Nashville.

    Demko posted a 35-14-2 record with a 2.45 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 51 games during the regular season. He also went 1-1-0 with a .938 save percentage in two outings after returning to the lineup last Thursday from a knee injury. Demko stopped 43 of 47 shots en route to a mark of 2-0-0 versus the Predators in 2023-24. Nashville placed 10th in the league with 3.24 goals per contest during the regular season.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Takes loss as regular season closes

    Demko set aside 22 of 25 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

    This was the final tune-up for Demko before the Canucks face the Predators in the 2024 Western Conference quarterfinals. A knee injury cost Demko a month's worth of games before he returned Tuesday, when he led the Canucks to a 4-1 win over the Flames, but he's held up fine physically since rejoining the team. Demko finished the regular season with a 35-14-2 record, 2.45 GAA and .918 save percentage, which marked career-best totals, plus he had five shutouts in his breakout campaign.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Facing Jets

    Demko will be between the visiting pipes versus Winnipeg on Thursday, John Lu of TSN reports.

    Demko was sensational Tuesday in a 4-1 win over Calgary -- he stopped 39 shots and looked playoff ready. Demko is 35-13-2 with a 2.44 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 50 contests this season. He will face the Jets, who will be resting all their top regulars, including Josh Morrissey and Kyle Connor.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Kept busy in return

    Demko stopped 39 of 40 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

    Demko returned from a 14-game absence due to a knee injury, and the Flames kept the pressure up throughout the contest. The 28-year-old was up to the challenge, allowing just a Brayden Pachal tally in the third period. Getting Demko back is a huge boost for a Canucks team that has the depth to be a contender in the playoffs. He's at 35-13-2 with a 2.44 GAA and a .918 save percentage over 50 appearances. It's unclear at this time if Demko will get the start Thursday versus the Jets in a tilt that may have implications for home-ice scenarios later in the postseason.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Returns to crease Tuesday

    Demko (knee) will be activated from long-term injured reserve ahead of his home start against Calgary on Tuesday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Demko's (knee) workload is increasing daily, and he could return to action as soon as Saturday versus Edmonton, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

    Demko will miss a 13th straight game Wednesday against Arizona, but it's looking increasingly likely that he'll participate in a regular-season contest or two before the playoffs get underway. He's gone 34-13-2 while posting a 2.47 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 49 appearances this campaign.

    Demko will be eligible to return for a road game against LA on April 6 at the earliest. He has a 34-13-2 record, 2.47 GAA and .917 save percentage in 49 outings this season. Casey DeSmith is likely to continue to get the bulk of Vancouver's starts during Demko's absence while Arturs Silovs will primarily serve as the backup.
