Sven Baertschi scored twice Monday night as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-2.

Baertschi now has goals in back-to-back games as well as two points in his last two outings. With 22 points for the season, he has not been overly productive, but players who took a risk on him before Friday night’s 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks and who kept him activated since have been rewarded. Baertschi scored one point in that game.
Jan 3 - 12:41 AM

Sven Baertschi scored a goal and an assist in the Vancouver Canucks' 3-2 shootout win against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.

Baertschi has eight goals and 12 assists for 20 points in 35 games with two GWG on 68 SOG. He's encroaching on last season's career-high of 28 points.
Jan 1 - 4:43 AM

Sven Baertschi scored a pair of goals and an assist in Tuesday's 8-6 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Baertschi was a healthy scratch in last Sunday's game, but he responded with a solid individual performance. Unfortunately for the Canucks, they were unable to hold on to a 5-2 lead in the third period and they eventually lost in embarrassing fashion. Baertschi now has six goals and eight assists in 27 games. He had a solid night, but he's not worth adding in standard fantasy leagues.

Sven Baertschi will be back in the lineup Tuesday after he was scratched Sunday.

He is projected to play with Bo Horvat and Alexandre Burrows. Baertschi has four goals and 11 points in 26 games this campaign.

A lot of people are on the case of coach Willie Desjardins for scratching Sven Baertschi Sunday.

Baertschi is tied for fifth in scoring on the Canucks and plays on the second unit so it was baffling as to why Desjardins picked the youngster to sit. The Canucks were shutout 3-0 in Washington and that certainly didn't help the cause of Desjardins. Baertschi has four goals and 11 points this season in 26 games so he really should no be on your fantasy radar.

Sven Baertschi will be scratched against the Canucks on Sunday.

Through 26 games this season Baertschi has but 11 points. Considering he set a career high of 28 points in 69 games last season, he's set to achieve new career highs.

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.

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.

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.
Sat, Nov 12, 2016 10:59:00 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.
