Sven Baertschi scored the game winning goal with 2:35 remaining in the third to lift the Vancouver Canucks 5-4 in a win over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night.
That was his second goal of the night as he led the Canucks in a busy third period. The Canucks scored with Loui Eriksson at the 1:09 minute mark, Baertschi gave them a little insurance at 2:08, and then slightly more than a minute later Jason Zucker scored unassisted to close the gap to one. Another goal by the Wild’s Ryan Sutter tied the game, but Baertschi did not want to see overtime. With this outing, he doubled his goal production for the year to four. Nov 30 - 1:16 AM

Sven Baertschi is ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday night when Vancouver hosts Minnesota.

He is projected to play alongside Bo Horvat and Alex Burrows. Baertschi has recorded two goals and seven assists in 20 games this season, but seven of those points have come in his last seven appearances.

Sven Baertschi hopes to play Tuesday against the Wild after he has missed the last two games with a lacerated foot.

The risk of infection was high so Baertschi was forced to sit. He has nine points in 20 games this season and is coming off a three point effort Wednesday against Arizona. He is worth looking at in deep leagues.

Sven Baertschi did not play Friday against Dallas because of a foot injury.

He sustained a lacerated foot in Wednesday's 4-1 win against the Coyotes. His status is unclear for Saturday's game versus Colorado. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.

Sven Baertschi had a goal and two assists Wednesday in the Canucks 4-1 win over Arizona.

Baertschi is good friends with Craig Cunningham who is in critical but stable condition after collapsing Saturday before an AHL game. He had 'Cunny' written on all his sticks as he played against the organization who holds Cunningham's rights. "I don’t think Sven mentioned anything to anybody," centre Bo Horvat said of his linemate’s tribute to Cunningham. "I just kind of noticed it when I was walking past the sticks. It was pretty awesome. I walked by the sticks before the game and saw it said ‘Cunny’ on his sticks. To have a game like he did tonight, getting three points with (Cunningham’s) name on the stick, I’m sure it means a lot to Sven." Baertschi has two goals and nine points in 20 games and is starting to show some of the offensive skills NHL scouts saw when the Flames made him the 13th overall pick in 2011.
Nov 24 - 11:43 AM

Sven Baertschi has one goal in 15 games this season.

He scored his first goal of 2016-17 on Tuesday night versus the Rangers and he added an assist in that match as well. It was hoped that Baertschi would be much more involved in Vancouver's offense this season, but he has earned just four points so far.
Nov 12 - 10:59 AM

Sven Baertschi has not scored in nine games this season.

Baertschi is getting chances so that's the good news. "It seemed like everything he (Baertschi) shot went wide or the goalie made an unbelievable save, but to know he’s getting the chances, one is going to go off his pants or shin pad — something flukey," linemate Bo Horvat said. Baertschi picked up an assist Saturday on Horvat's goal and it was his second of the campaign. He should break out soon but Baertschi is not a candidate for your fantasy team at this time.

Sven Baertschi was bumped up to the first line as he played alongside the Sedin twins Saturday.

Baertschi did not do much and was a minus-one in the 4-3 loss in a shootout. Loui Eriksson started the season on the line but he has been struggling and the Canucks are apparently refusing to put Jannik Hansen back there, even though the trio worked together so well last season. It is not a good time to pick up Baertschi off the waiver wire but if he continues to see action on the top unit, then it may be.
Oct 23 - 10:28 AM

Sven Baertschi registered an assist in Vancouver's 2-1 overtime win against St. Louis on Tuesday.

It was Baertschi's first point in three games this season. He had 15 goals and 28 points in 69 contests in 2015-16.
Oct 19 - 9:10 AM

Bo Horvat and Sven Baertschi scored one goal each in the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks Tuesday night.

Baertschi scored 15 goals last year with the Canucks and had 13 assists. Horvat had 13 goals and 12 assists with the Canucks in 2014/2015 and 16 goals with 24 assists last year. Both shooters hope to get a little more ice time this season.
Sep 28 - 1:45 AM

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.

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.

Sven Baertschi has inked a two-year, $3.7 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

Baertschi will earn $2 million in 2016-17 and $1.7 million in the second campaign of the deal. That's up from his previous salary of $900,000. The 23-year-old had 15 goals and 28 points in 69 contests in 2015-16.

Sven Baertschi suffered a lower-body injury during Thursday's game.

The specifics and severity of Baertschi's ailment aren't known, but he's expected to be evaluated further on Friday. Baertschi has 15 goals and 28 points in 69 contests this season. If he's unavailable for Friday's contest then Vancouver is expected to dress a defenseman as a forward.
Apr 1 - 11:48 AM

Sven Baertschi found the back of the net in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Baertschi tied the game at two at the 14:18 mark of the third period, but the Canucks weren't able to force overtime. Bo Horvat and Emerson Etem picked up the assists on the game-tying goal. Baertschi has 15 goals and 28 points in 66 games this season.
