Demko will start Monday vs. the Blues.

Demko stopped 17 of 18 shots in the Canucks win over the Sharks on January 18th. It was a strong outing for the 24-year-old, who is now 6-0-1 with a 2.71 GAA and .908 SV% in his seven home starts. In his first start vs. the Blues, Demko stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 4-3 shootout win in mid-October.

Demko starts Saturday vs. the Sharks.

Demko surrendered five goals on 49 shots in the Canucks loss in Florida on January 9th. He hasn't played a lot lately but has lost his first two outings in January while giving up eight goals on 65 shots (.877 SV%). Tonight he faces the Sharks for the second time this season, he stopped 24 of 26 shots in a 5-2 win in San Jose in early-November.

Demko will start Thursday in Florida.

Demko allowed three goals on 16 shots after replacing Jacob Markstrom in the Canucks blowout loss in Tampa Bay on Tuesday. It was a rough night for both netminders but they'll give Demko his 14th start of the season in their second game of a Florida swing. He is 3-4-0 with a 3.13 GAA and .902 SV% on the road, so it should be easy to find a better option on an 11-game slate.

Demko is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Demko suffered a concussion in practice Wednesday, coach Travis Green said ahead of Thursday’s game vs. the Hurricanes. Loui Eriksson collided with Demko while taking the puck to the net in practice and Demko also took a shot off the mask at one point as well. Mike DiPietro has been recalled from Utica (AHL) and is expected to serve as Jacob Markstrom's backup on Thursday.

Demko will start Tuesday vs. the Senators.

Demko gave up seven goals on 39 shots in the Canucks loss in Pittsburgh last Wednesday. It was a wild game and it ended up being Demko's worst outing of the season. After playing fantastic in October, Demko had a tough time in November, going 2-3-1 with a 3.73 GAA and .886 SV%. Despite losing three straight starts, Demko has some spot-start appeal with the Senators in town.

Demko will start Monday in Philadelphia.

Demko surrendered five goals on 23 shots in the Canucks loss to the Avalanche on November 15th. Jacob Markstrom has started the last three games but Demko will go head-to-head with Carter Hart on Monday. He's played well this season but has allowed at least three goals in three straight games, posting an .883 SV% during that span. He's been good on the road, going 2-2-0 with a 2.23 GAA and .926 SV% in four games.

Demko will start Tuesday vs. the Predators.

Demko allowed three goals on 34 shots in the Canucks loss in Winnipeg last Friday. Demko has played very well in his first six appearances and has earned some more playing time beside Jacob Markstrom. Demko enters Tuesday's matchup tied for second in the NHL in GAA (1.99) and tied for third in SV% (.933). It's not a great matchup but the Predators are a pedestrian 3-3-1 on the road this season.

Demko will start Friday in Winnipeg.

Demko allowed two goals on 26 shots in the Canucks win in San Jose last Saturday. With Jacob Markstrom going last night, Demko will make his sixth appearance of the season in Winnipeg. He has gone 2-1-0 with a 1.97 GAA and .931 SV% on the road this year and is a decent option against a Jets offence that is still searching for answers.

Demko will start Saturday in San Jose.

Demko allowed two goals on 31 shots in the Canucks win over the Panthers on Monday. Jacob Markstrom started the last two games, including last night, so Demko will make his fifth start tonight. He is 3-1-0 with a 1.73 GAA and .941 SV% in his first four starts and gets a crack at a struggling Sharks team that sits 27th in goal-scoring (2.43 GF/gm) in their first 14 games.

Demko will start Monday vs. the Panthers.

Demko stopped 23 of 24 shots in the Canucks loss in New Jersey on October 19th. Jacob Markstrom has started the last three games but it looks like Demko will make his fourth start of the year on Monday. He has been extremely impressive, posting a 1.64 GAA and .943 SV% so far and while the Panthers present a very difficult matchup, they are on the tail-end of a back-to-back.

Demko led the Canucks onto the ice for warmups.

Demko allowed three goals on 37 shots in the Canucks win in St. Louis on Thursday. With Jacob Markstrom away for personal reasons, Demko started the last two games and went 2-0-0 while allowing just four goals on 64 shots (.938 SV%). Markstrom returned to practice on Friday but the Canucks will stick with Demko this afternoon before turning to Markstrom on Sunday.
