Feb 9 - 5:50 PM

Coach Willie Desjardins will start using Jacob Markstrom more even with the return of Ryan Miller to the lineup.

Desjardins said that Markstrom has taken his game to another level of late and that bodes well for the Canucks who won't have to overuse the 35-year-old Miller down the stretch. Markstrom is 7-5-4 with a 2.40 GAA and a .922 save percentage. He is worth starting in DFS or daily transaction pools if you know he will be between the pipes.

Markstrom has only played against the Hurricanes twice in his career, but he won both contests with a combined 1.50 GAA and .952 save percentage. In 2015-16, he has a 2.44 GAA and .920 save percentage in 17 contests.
Jan 15 - 5:19 PM

Jacob Markstrom has established himself as a solid alternative to Ryan Miller.

Markstrom has a 2.21 GAA and .927 save percentage in his last eight games. Miller and Markstrom have both spent stretches of the 2015-16 campaign on the sidelines, which means that Vancouve hasn't always had the luxury of picking between the two in 2015-16. However, now that both goalies are healthy, the Canucks are in a position where they can play their backup goaltender with confidence to lighten Miller's workload. Markstrom still isn't a great candidate to wrestling the starting job away just yet, but he's more than your average backup.
Jan 14 - 11:44 AM

Jan 11 - 3:11 PM

Jacob Markstrom yielded three goals on 35 shots in the Canucks’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.

Markstrom deserved a better fate, if only because he was left to stop a breakaway from Nikita Kucherov after an ill-timed line change from Henrik Sedin. Markstrom has a 2.48 GAA and .919 SV%. Ryan Miller served as the backup Saturday, so it's possible he could return to the lineup Sunday against the Panthers.
Jan 10 - 1:02 AM

Jacob Markstrom will face Tampa Bay on Saturday night.
