Jayson Megna will miss Tuesday's game against Nashville because of the flu.

Reid Boucher will take his place in the Canucks lineup. Megna is considered day-to-day at this point.
Jan 17 - 9:28 PM

Ryan Miller will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators.

Miller has dropped his last two decisions in overtime and in a shootout. He has a 12-10-3 record with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage in 2016-17.
Jan 17 - 8:37 PM

Ben Hutton will be out of action for three-to-six weeks due to a hand injury.

The Vancouver defender has a small fracture in his hand. Hutton has 11 points, including six on the power play, in 41 games this season.
Jan 17 - 2:40 PM

Anton Rodin re-aggravated his surgically-repaired knee on Jan. 6 and is going to miss some time to recover.

He is scheduled to have some testing done this week. Rodin will also take some time to rest and rehab, so it's unclear when he will be available to return.

Jacob Markstrom made 20 saves on 22 shots but was beaten by Taylor Hall in overtime on Sunday as the Devils snuck past the Canucks.

Markstrom is now winless in three of his past four games, and hasn't been able to string together consistent victories. The 26-year-old is 8-9-3 this season with a 2.59 goals against average and .912 save percentage.
Jan 15 - 11:30 PM

Loui Eriksson was the only Canuck to put the puck in the net in Sunday's 2-1 loss against New Jersey.

Eriksson's 10th goal of the year, assisted by each of the Sedins, at least gave Vancouver a point in the overtime loss. Eriksson's first point in three games gives him 10 goals and 20 points in 45 games this season.

The Canucks will put Jacob Markstrom between the pipes against the Devils on Sunday.

Markstrom has already seen the Devils once this year, stopping only 19 of 22 shots for the loss. He hasn't been very good against Eastern foes, sporting an .891 save percentage with a 3.00 GAA and a 3-7 record.
Jan 15 - 6:20 PM

Reid Boucher and Anton Rodin will be scratched from Sunday's match withe Devils on Sunday.

Mark it six in a row on the pine for Boucher since being claimed by the Canucks, leaving Rodin with the only three games played between them in a Canucks' uniform.

Although the numbers don't show it, Jake Virtanen has been improving in the minors.

Virtanen was selected sixth overall in 2014 but has yet to make a significant dent in the NHL as he had only seven goals and 13 points last season in 55 games and was sent to the minors this season after only one helper in 10 games. He has four AHL goals and seven points in 24 games but coach Travis Green has been impressed. "He has come here with a good attitude," said Green. "Sometimes, when players come down, it’s hard to get them into a mindset, but that hasn’t been the case since Day 1 with Jake. He has put in the work because when he first got here, playing 15 minutes was hard and he’s handling them well now. He’s getting to play a lot of minutes and getting practices during the week that he doesn’t get in the NHL and that’s all positive stuff for him. And I’m not concerned about his points because we don’t have an offensive group here and we’re constantly changing our lines. We want Jake to develop into a good pro who can play a 200-foot game."

Anton Rodin is still having issues with his surgically repaired knee.

Rodin had knee surgery a year ago after lacerating his tendon in a Swedish Hockey League game. He came over to North America to play for the Canucks but he has yet to show his stuff as he is not 100 percent. He will be scratched once again on Sunday and his next appearance is unknown at this time.
Jan 15 - 10:27 AM

Ben Hutton (upper body) is on the injured reserve list.

Hutton last played on Jan. 6, so the move is presumably retroactive to that date. In other words, he can be activated whenever he's healthy, so this doesn't tell us much about his injury.
Jan 15 - 2:54 AM

Daniel Sedin scored a goal in the Canucks' 5-4 shootout loss to Philadelphia on Thursday.

That was Sedin's first goal since Dec. 18th and his first point since Jan. 2nd. He has 11 goals and 24 points in 44 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 13 - 11:47 AM

Ryan Miller allowed four goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Two of the four goals Miller allowed were scored on the power play. He also allowed one goal on three shootout attempts in the loss. Miller has a 5-0-2 record in his last seven contests. He'll enter his next start with a 12-10-3 record, a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage this season.
Jan 12 - 10:59 PM

Markus Granlund scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Granlund's first goal gave the Canucks a 2-1 lead at the 1:51 mark of the second period and his second marker tied the game at three roughly eight minutes later. Granlund now has two multi-goal efforts in his last four games and he's up to 11 goals and eight assists in 44 games this season.
Jan 12 - 10:43 PM

Reid Boucher and Andrey Pedan will be scratched against the Flyers on Thursday.

Unfortunately neither Boucher nor Pedan have suited up for the Canucks this season, which ultimately underlines their fantasy value.
