Markstrom will start Saturday in Calgary.

Markstrom had a rough start to the 2019-20 season, allowing three goals on 22 shots in the Canucks loss in Edmonton. His splits are always going to be mediocre but the Canucks offence should give him enough chances to win games. He was 3-2-0 with a 2.94 GAA and .917 SV% in five games vs. the Flames last season.

Boeser is in concussion protocol following Monday’s preseason game.

Boeser took an ugly hit from behind from Senators centre Chris Tierney and Canucks head coach Travis Green announced that Boeser is in concussion protocol. With the regular season just over one week away, Boeser’s status for the season opener is suddenly in question.

The Canucks have re-signed Brock Boeser to a three-year contract worth $17.625M ($5.875M AAV).

Boeser had 26 goals and 30 assists (56 points) in 69 games in 2019. Through two NHL seasons, Boeser has averaged 34 goals and 35 assists (69 points) per 82-games but has missed 20.1 percent of the games. If Boeser can stay healthy, he has legit 40-goal, 40-assist upside next to Elias Pettersson.

The Canucks have re-signed Nikolay Goldobin to a one-year contract.

Goldobin missed 19 games last season but totalled 27 points (7G / 20A) in his first fill NHL season. The 23-year-old has had a difficult time getting the Canucks coaching staff to trust him full-time in the top-6 and that will be even more difficult after the additions of Micheal Ferland and J.T. Miller this offseason. Still, Goldobin has 15-goal, 25-assist potential if he plays a full season. However, he looks like the Canucks 13th forward as we approach training camp.
