Markstrom was a highly touted prospect coming from Sweden, but hasn’t been able to live up to the hype so far in the NHL. In 53 NHL starts, Markstrom posts a GAA over 3.00 and a sub .900SV%. He will only have fantasy value in the event of a Ryan Miller injury. Nov 23 - 12:40 AM

Jacob Markstrom will face the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

This will be Markstrom's third start for Vancouver of the season. He's 1-0-1 but he's stopped just 74 of 81 shots for Vancouver, and holds a 1-0-1 record with five goals against for AHL Utica. The 25-year-old netminder has a world of talent, tonight may make for a good start.
Nov 22 - 2:51 PM

Jacob Markstrom, making his second start of the season, gave up a goal to David Desharnais at 3:25 of overtime in the Vancouver Canucks' 4-3 loss to the Canadiens in Montreal Monday night.

Markstrom's record is now 1-0-1. His goals-against average is 3.41 and his save percentage is .914. Markstrom may have played well enough to get another start for the Canucks in their next game. First-stringer Ryan Miller hasn't won in his past five games.
Nov 16 - 10:57 PM

Jacob Markstrom will get the nod Monday versus Montreal.

He was superb in a 5-3 win over the Blue Jackets back on Nov. 10 and this will be his second start of the season. Markstrom made 42 stops in that match and could get more action if he posts another win because number one goaltender Ryan Miller hasn't won in his last five appearances.
Nov 16 - 12:04 PM

Jacob Markstrom stopped 42 of 45 shots in a 5-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Markstrom was forced to miss the first 15 games of the season because of a hamstring injury. Two of Columbus' goals were scored on the power play while the other was scored shorthanded. Now that he's healthy, the Canucks will be more willing to give Ryan Miller some nights off. Miller started 14 of 15 games while Markstrom was injured. He was named the game's first star.
Nov 10 - 11:09 PM

Jacob Markstrom didn't have to wait long to get his first start of the season, as he will be in goal for Tuesday's game against Columbus.

He finished his conditioning stint in the minors recently following his hamstring injury and rejoined the Canucks on Monday. Markstrom was great in the AHL last season and he will try to establish himself at the NHL level this year behind Ryan Miller.
Nov 10 - 1:12 PM

Jacob Markstrom has been called up by the Canucks.

He is back with Vancouver after completing his conditioning stint in the minors. In two appearances with Utica, he posted one win with a .909 save percentage and a 2.40 goals-against average. Markstrom had been sidelined with a hamstring injury, but he's finally ready to get into some NHL action, while serving as Ryan Miller's backup.
Nov 9 - 11:03 AM

We're a month into the season and Markstrom has played just twice this season, and both were with AHL Utica. He started the season on injured reserve with a hamstring issue.
Nov 8 - 3:45 PM

Jacob Markstrom has been sent to AHL Utica on a conditioning stint.

The 25-year-old is making his way back from a hamstring injury that he suffered on October 6th. Markstrom spent most of last season with AHL Utica and even backstopped them to a Calder Cup final in 2014-15. He will serve as Ryan Miller's backup when he returns to full health.
Nov 5 - 7:56 PM

Jacob Markstrom (hamstring) has resumed practices.

He is slated to play in the AHL with the Utica Comets for a couple of games on a conditioning assignment before he returns to action with the Canucks.
Nov 4 - 6:40 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have placed Jacob Markstrom (hamstring) on the injured reserve list.

The goaltender could be out for three weeks if not longer. Richard Bachman will be Ryan Miller's backup but don't expect many if any starts from Bachman. Markstrom was expected to give Miller a run for his money this season as far as the starting goaltender's job was concerned and this can't help.
Oct 11 - 10:47 AM

Jacob Markstrom's lower-body issue is a hamstring injury.

The Canucks will reevaluate Markstrom in a week, but otherwise didn't provide any timetable for his return. A recent report suggested that Markstrom would be sidelined for at least three weeks though.
Oct 8 - 5:20 PM

Jacob Markstrom will miss at least three weeks due to a lower-body injury.

Vancouver will reassess the situation at that point, so that initial three week timetable shouldn't be taken as a sign that Markstrom will be ready by the start of November. This is an unfortunate setback for Markstrom, who has an opportunity this season to firmly establish himself in the NHL. Richard Bachman will fill the backup role while Markstrom in absent.
Oct 8 - 5:10 PM

Jacob Markstrom is out Wednesday due to a lower-body injury.

He was reportedly hurt at practice and should be considered day-to-day for now. The Canucks called up Richard Bachman to back up Ryan Miller for Wednesday's opener against Calgary.
Oct 7 - 1:44 PM

Jacob Markstrom made 21 saves as the Canucks took care of the Oilers 5-2 on Thursday night.

Only the second goal, a snapper by Nail Yakupov, ought to be blamed on Markstrom as Yakupov simply released before Markstrom could get set and take out the angle. Either way, Markstrom stymied the Oilers power play as well and generally looked poised in net. This isn't a sure sign that he's ready to take over for incumbent Ryan Miller, but it's another step towards another layer of intrigue in Van City.
