The Canucks have recalled Luke Schenn from Utica (AHL).

Schenn played in eight games with the Ducks earlier this season but has been in the AHL since being traded to the Canucks. Since the trade, Schenn, who is not known for his offence, has five points (1G / 4A) in seven games. He should make his Canucks debut on the weekend with both Chris Tanev and Alexander Edler out.

Markstrom will start for the second straight night.

Markstrom stopped 21 of 22 shots in the Canucks loss in Anaheim last night. The Canucks don’t have many options between the pipes right now, so Markstrom will start again tonight in Los Angeles. Markstrom is 1-0-1 with a 1.99 GAA and .915 SV% in two games against the Kings this season.

Markstrom will start Wednesday in Anaheim.

Markstrom missed Monday’s game due to an injury but appears set to return to the crease on Wednesday. Markstrom was on the ice for the morning skate and should face a Ducks team that has basically fallen apart. Markstrom is 2-2-1 with a 2.58 GAA and .927 SV% in his last five starts.

The Canucks are “hopeful” that Markstrom will play Wednesday.

Markstrom did not play Monday vs. the Sharks due to a lower-body injury and that led to 19-year-old Mikey DiPietro getting lit up. The injury is obviously minor as the Canucks hope to have their No.1 goalie between the pipes tonight. They went out and acquired Marek Mazanec from the Rangers on Tuesday and he would likely start if Markstrom is unavailable.

Tonight he faces another tough test with the Sharks in town—Markstrom has gone 12-6-3 with a 2.68 GAA and .914 SV% in Vancouver this year.
