Sven Baertschi will be scratched for Game Four against the Calgary Flames.

It was originally thought that Baertschi would be Alex Burrows' replacement, but instead it'll be Linden Vey. Baertschi has no playoff experience, but does have 69 sporadic games over the past four seasons with Calgary and now Vancouver. He's scored 10 goals and 30 points in that time.
Apr 21 - 6:21 PM

Sven Baertschi has been called up by the Vancouver Canucks.

Baertschi will be available for Game 4, but it's not clear if he'll play in that contest. Baertschi was traded from Vancouver's current first round opponent, the Calgary Flames, in exchange for a 2015 second round pick back in March. Baertschi has potential, but he struggled to find his footing within the Flames' organization, so the hope was that a change of scenery would be beneficial. He has seven goals and 15 points in 15 AHL contests since the trade.
Apr 21 - 1:09 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have assigned Sven Baertschi to the AHL.

The 22-year-old was acquired from Calgary at the trade deadline but he hasn't been able to establish himself with his new team. He had two goals and six points in 18 games with the Flames and Canucks this season.
Apr 12 - 12:53 PM

Sven Baertschi scored twice on Saturday.

It was Baertschi's first two goals of the season as coach Willie Desjardins played him alongside Radim Vrbata and Nick Bonino in a top-six role. Baertschi put himself in line for some playoff action as the Canucks are currently hurting up front with Zack Kassian, Brad Richardson and Shawn Matthias out of action.

Sven Baertschi will likely be a healthy scratch on Monday.

Baertschi appeared to be on the outside looking in during practice on Sunday as Ronalds Kenins should get the call against the Kings. Just an FYI in case you have either player.
Apr 6 - 8:58 AM

The Vancouver Canucks have summoned Sven Baertschi.

Baertschi has 15 goals and 38 points in 48 AHL contests in 2014-15. He also has four assists in 15 games with the Calgary Flames. He was acquired by Vancouver on March 2 in exchange for a second-round pick. He was selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he was struggling to find his place in the Flames' organization, so the change of scenery was probably for the best.
Apr 3 - 1:41 PM

Sven Baertschi is excited to be joining the Vancouver Canucks' organization.

Vancouver acquired Baertschi from Calgary in exchange for a second round pick. Baertschi, 22, was the 13th overall selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he hasn't worked out as the Flames had hoped. He'll stay in the minors for now, but this is an opportunity for him to start fresh with a new organization. "I'm in their plans and they were excited that they got me," said Baertschi. "When you hear somebody say they want you to be there and want you in the organization, that's great to have. It really seems they believe in me."

The Vancouver Canucks have acquired Sven Baertschi from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a second round pick.

Baertschi has eight goals and 21 points in 34 AHL games in 2014-15. He also has four points in 15 games with Calgary. He was taken with the 13th overall pick in 2011 and might benefit from the change of scenery.
Mar 2 - 3:15 PM

Sven Baertschi is expected to be a healthy scratch Wednesday night against the Sharks.

Mikael Backlund is returning from an illness so Baertschi will be back in the press box for Wednesday's game. The 22-year-old Swiss born winger has played in 15 games with the Flames this year but has yet to find the back of the net and has only chipped in with four assists. Markus Granlund and newly called up Corey Potter are also expected to be healthy scratches Wednesday.

Sven Baertschi will suit up Monday night against the Winnipeg Jets.

With Mikael Backlund out due to an illness, Baertschi will get a chance to play Monday. Baertschi hasn't played in an NHL game since December 4th and has just three assists in 14 games.
Feb 2 - 9:04 PM

Look for the Calgary Flames to keep the same lineup on Saturday that they used on Thursday.

That means that Sven Baertschi, Tyler Wotherspoon and David Wolf will remain in the press box. Just an FYI.
Jan 31 - 7:22 AM

Sven Baertschi, David Wolf, and Tyler Wotherspoon will all be healthy scratches against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

Baertschi has had trouble establishing himself in Calgary. He has just 27 points through 65 games since the 2011-12 season. He's done better with AHL Adirondack with 17 points in 28 games, however. Wolf, a 25 year old winger from Dusseldorf, Germany, has 25 points through 31 games in the AHL. So perhaps he is more worthy of your attention at this time.
Jan 27 - 8:43 PM

Sven Baertschi has been called up by Calgary.

He has averaged just under nine minutes of ice time per game in 14 NHL appearances this season. Baertschi has three assists and 11 shots. In 28 matches with AHL Adirondack, he has five goals and 17 points.
Jan 26 - 2:14 PM

The Calgary Flames have sent Sven Baertschi to the minors.

Baertschi had three points in 14 games and with Mason Raymond returning, he was the odd man out.
