The Canucks have recalled Michael DiPietro from Utica (AHL).

Thatcher Demko is out indefinitely with a concussion, so DiPietro comes up from Utica to serve as Jacob Markstrom's backup on Thursday. With a back-to-back coming up this weekend, Demko could make his season debut in San Jose (Sat) or Vegas (Sun). He is 8-4-1 with a 2.56 GAA and .910 SV% with Utica this season.

The Canucks have recalled Michael DiPietro from Utica (AHL).

DiPietro has gone 7-4-1 with a 2.44 GAA and .913 SV% in his first 13 AHL starts this year. The 20-year-old, former third-round pick has received his first call-up of the season because Jacob Markstrom has been granted a leave of absence to go to Sweden for his father's memorial service. DiPietro likely won't play a game but should serve as Thatcher Demko's backup on Tuesday.

DiPietro will join the team in Washington to serve as the backup on Tuesday.

DiPietro is one of the league’s top goaltending prospects but has struggled since a midseason trade to the Ottawa 67’s, where he is 7-2-0 despite a 2.82 GAA and .896 SV%. DiPietro will backup Jacob Markstrom vs. the Capitals because Thatcher Demko tweaked something in warmups on Monday.
