Sven Baertschi found the back of the net on Tuesday.
Baertschi now has three goals in his last seven games after netting seven in his previous 38 contests. We wouldn't read too much into his recent success though as we're not convinced this is a sign that he'll have a strong second half. Feb 10 - 9:51 AM

Sven Baertschi scored his eighth goal of the season in a 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

Sven Baertschi will miss at least a game with a sore neck.

It sounds like the same ailment that befell Alex Burrows for a game, but the Canucks are mum as to the source of Baertschi's ailment. Either way, he's considered day-to-day and has posted 11 points over 32 games this season.

Sven Baertschi suffered an upper-body injury Monday night.

He had two shots in 6:48 of ice time before he was forced to exit the game and he was not able to return. Consider him day-to-day for now.

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.

Sven Baertschi is a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

The 23-year-old will be a healthy scratch for the second time in three games. Baertschi has two goals and seven points in 20 games this season. Andrey Pedan will also be scratched for this game.

Sven Baertschi will tag in for Jake Virtanen against the Stars on Friday.

Baertschi has two goals and seven points through 19 games this season, and will skate to the right of Alexandre Burrows and Bo Horvat on the team's third line.

Sven Baertschi and Taylor Fedun will be scratched from Sunday's match with New Jersey.

It's been a nice season for Baertschi, who has seven points in 18 games for the Canucks. However he's seeing less than 11 minutes per night, suggesting that 23-year-old's time could end at any time.

Sven Baertschi scored his second goal of the season in Vancouver's 3-2 loss to Ottawa on Thursday night.

Baertschi has two goals and five assists for seven points in 14 games so far this season.

Sven Baertschi scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-3 OT loss to New Jersey.

Baertschi went to work with the Canucks trailing 3-1. He picked up an assist on Alexander Edler's goal and he tied the game just over two minutes later. It was a solid performance from the 23-year-old, but it's hard to imagine he'll be able to produce consistently if he keeps playing under 10 minutes per game (he played 8:52 against the Devils). Baertschi has one goal and six points this season.

Sven Baertschi will return to the Vancouver lineup Saturday.

Baertschi has been a healthy scratch in two of the last three games. He will line up with Bo Horvat and Jannik Hansen in what should be a nice offensive line. "There’s lot of offensive potential," said Canucks coach Willie Desjardins of Baertschi. "He was one of the top players in the WHL and it hasn’t translated as well in the pro game, but I think it can. We’re trying to be patient with him until he gets his game on track. Once he gets confident and comfortable, he’ll produce." He has four helpers in 10 games this season.

Sven Baertschi will be yanked from the lineup to make room for the returning Chris Higgins.

The former Flames draft pick has four assists in 10 games with two press box appearances. This will make the third time he's been scratched in 2015-16, despite earning an assist in his last game against the Flyers. Coach Willie Desjardins commented that it was a difficult decision to pull him, because he thought that was one of Baertschi's better games.

Sven Baertschi and Alex Biega have been scratched from Friday's tilt with the Coyotes.

Baertschi has just a trio of assists through nine games, and has only 12 shots (21 attempts), while averaging under 11 minutes per game. Hopefully this is just a stutter for the talented youngster.

Sven Baertschi registered an assist in Vancouver's 5-1 victory over Montreal Tuesday night.

Baertschi has three assists in eight games this season. The 23-year-old has now played in 77 career games and has recorded 33 points over that span.
