Demko will start Saturday vs. the Sabres.

Demko surrendered two goals on 42 shots in the Canucks win over the Senators on Tuesday. The win snapped a three-game losing skid for Demko, who will start for the 12th time this season on Saturday afternoon. The 23-year-old has gone 4-0-1 with a 2.62 GAA and .919 SV% in five home games this season.

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.

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.

Markstrom has been granted a leave of absence to attend his father's memorial service.

Markstorm has returned to Sweden to attend his father's memorial service, which means Thatcher Demko will start Tuesday vs. the Senators. There's no indication when Markstrom will return to Vancouver, but he could be back before Saturday's game vs. the Sabres. Mikey DiPietro was called up from Utica (AHL) and will serve as Demko's backup tomorrow.

Markstrom is 1-1- with a 2.54 GAA and .904 SV% in two games vs. Edmonton and is 2-2-2 with a 2.76 GAA and .907 SV% on home-ice.

Edler is doubtful for Sunday's game due to an upper-body injury.

Edler was forced to leave Saturday's win in Edmonton with an upper-body injury and is not expected to play in the second-half of their home-and-home on Sunday. With Edler out, look for Tyler Myers and Quinn Hughes to play a lot more on Sunday and for Troy Stecher to see some power-play time.
