The Canucks went into the first intermission trailing 2-1, but they were able to battle back for the win. Markstrom has a 2-2-1 record with a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage this season. He isn’t worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Anders Nilsson got the start in last night's game against the Bruins, but Markstrom ended up playing almost 50 minutes in that game. Markstrom has a 1-2-1 record with a 2.88 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season.

Jacob Markstrom allowed five goals on 27 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

"Five is way too many. I've got to come up with something." Markstrom said after the game. "You want to be the difference maker & today I couldn't get a break." Not the greatest outing by the Swedish netminder but his teammates could have done better in front of him as well. The loss drops his record to 1-2-1 with a 2.97 goals against average and a .902 save percentage.
Oct 15 - 1:04 AM

Canucks head coach Travis Green has confirmed Jacob Markstrom will start in goal against the Calgary Flames tonight.

It will be Markstrom's 100th career NHL start. He is sporting a 1-1-1 record with a 2.30 goals against average and .927 save percentage this season. He might be worth a start in fantasy tonight playing against the Flames who are on the second half of a back-to-back.
Oct 14 - 2:12 PM

Jacob Markstrom is the probable starter Saturday night for the Canucks game against the Flames.

Markstrom has done surprisingly well so far this season posting a 1-1-1 record with a 2.30 GAA and a .927 SP. So far, so good, for the Swedish netminder as he tries to lay claim to the Canucks' starting goalie position over Anders Nilsson.

Jacob Markstrom stopped just 16 shots while letting in three as the Canucks lost 4-2 to the Winnipeg Jets.

The Canucks outshot the Jets 32-20 but weren't helped by Markstrom's inconsistent play. While the Canucks aren't lauded for their defense, it wasn't one of their worst games and Markstrom could've delivered a better performance. It will be interesting to see what comes next in the crease for the Canucks, as Anders Nilsson seems poised to challenge for starts. Markstrom has a .927 save percentage and a 2.30 goals-against average so far this season, dropping his record to 1-1-1.

Jacob Markstrom will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Jacob Markstrom made 40 saves in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the visiting Senators.

Markstrom did a good job with some suspect defensive play in front of him, but he allowed shootout goals to Kyle Turris and Mark Stone to take the tough loss. The Canucks remain home for the next two outings on Thursday against the Jets and Saturday against the Flames.

Markstrom didn't get rattled after allowing the first goal just over one minute in the match and ended up with the victory in Vancouver's first game of the 2017-18 campaign. He will be sporting a 2.00 GAA and a .943 save percentage into his next appearance.
Oct 8 - 1:52 AM

Jacob Markstrom will play between the pipes on Saturday.

That was expected, but now Vancouver has confirmed its goaltending plans. Markstrom is worth keeping an eye on as he's battling with Anders Nilsson for the starting gig. Markstrom posted a 2.63 GAA and .910 save percentage in 26 contests last season.
Oct 7 - 2:22 PM

Jacob Markstrom is the probable starter against the Oilers Saturday night.

We would be surprised if Markstrom didn't get the call in the Canucks' season opener as he is the likely favorite to be the number one guy in the net in Vancouver. Markstrom could be in for a rough night against the high-flying Oilers. So if you own him, we suggest you keep him on your bench at least for Saturday night.
Oct 7 - 1:28 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have announced that Jacob Markstrom will start in goal tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.

No word on if he will play the entire game or not. Markstrom will be the starter for the Canucks this season but fantasy owners should be weary about investing in the Swede considering his inconsistent play. He's currently going undrafted in most Yahoo leagues and it's probably best to keep it that way.
