Jacob Markstrom stopped 27 of 28 shots in Sunday's 2-1 win over Team Russia.
This was a solid performance from a goalie who had no idea he was starting until he got to the rink today. Markstrom played because Henrik Lundqvist had the flu. It appeared as though Markstrom was heading for a shutout, but Alex Ovechkin scored with 33 seconds remaining in the game to make it 2-1. There were some nervous moments at the end, as Ovechkin appeared to score his second of the game with eight seconds remaining, but the officials waved it off because the puck was pushed over the goal line with his hand. As good as Markstrom was, look for Lundqvist to be back in goal in Sweden's next game on Tuesday. Sep 18 - 6:22 PM

Jacob Markstrom will get the start in Sunday's game against Team Russia.

This decision is a little surprising, as many expected Henrik Lundqvist to be the starting goaltender. Lundqvist isn't dressed for today's game because he's dealing with an illness. Jhonas Enroth will serve as Team Sweden's backup.

Jacob Markstrom started Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Finland.

Jacob Markstrom has inked a three-year, $11.01 million contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks.

Markstrom still has a season left on his two-year, $3.1 million deal, so this new contract will secure his services through 2019.20. Markstrom and Ryan Miller will continue to split the goaltending duties next season, but then Miller's contract will be up and Markstrom will likely emerge as the team's clear cut starter. "Jacob is a talented, competitive goaltender with size and a proven ability to make big saves at crucial moments in a game," said Canucks GM Jim Benning. "He set career highs in several statistical categories last season and two years ago led the Comets to their first Calder Cup Final. He’s motivated and wants to help his team win. We’re excited to have Jacob competing in a Canucks uniform for years to come." He had a 2.73 GAA and .915 save percentage in 32 games last season.
