Sven Baertschi is seeking a more consistent effort in 2016-17.
"It was good to have a strong second half, but obviously the first half is the one that really bugs me," he said. "Consistency is doing the same thing and working hard every single day so that it becomes automatic. The first half of the season if I look back, there was a lot of not quite going to the net. I was around the net, but not actually going there. The most painful part of hockey is going to the net and once I started doing that, it really started working for me and I started scoring goals so I just kept doing it." Baertschi wasn't able to train for a month after the season because of a knee injury, but there are no lingering effects from that anymore. He intends to ramp up his workouts with training camp set to begin on Sept. 22. Aug 14 - 12:18 PM

The Vancouver Canucks would like to add a winger, which would allow Sven Baertschi to play primarily on the third line next season.

"We’d like to add a proven scorer who brings some grit to take the pressure off Sven, so he can keep developing at his own pace," said Canucks GM Jim Benning. "He took a big step last year and wants to prove to people that he has more to give. But I don’t know where he’s going to end up (next season). At some point, that (second line) is where he’s going to be, but maybe he plays on the third line with the capability of playing on the power play and potentially scoring 15 to 20 goals for us." Baertschi had 15 goals and 28 points in 69 contests last season. The 23-year-old inked a two-year, $3.7 million contract extension with Vancouver back in June.

With his 12th goal of the season Thursday, Sven Baertschi is now up to three goals over his past five games.

That's three goals over his last nine shots as well, not too shabby at all. That's well over twice his career shooting percentage, but a boy can dream. Though the Canucks still fell to the Ducks 5-2.

Sven Baertschi has surprised many this season with his very good defensive play.

Baertschi was drafted as a goal scorer in the first round by the Flames but his defensive play has impressed many and once he gets his offense going, the Canucks are going to have a real good one. Baertschi has five goals and 11 points and had his three game goal scoring streak come to an end on Saturday. He is a flier but may be well worth it in keeper leagues.

Sven Baertschi created a nice two-game point streak for himself during Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to Florida.

Two games, two goals and three points. Not too shabby. Baretschi picked up his fourth tally of the season in dazzling fashion as well, but with 10 points in 28 games so far we wouldn't expect him on the highlight reel too many more times.
