Adam Gaudette is starting to show a lot of promise.

Gaudette was taken by Vancouver with the 149th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, but he's developed nicely in the NCAA. He has 23 goals and 49 points in 31 contests with Northeastern University and plays a two-way game. Canucks president Trevor Linden recently saw Gaudette play and was encouraged. "The details in his game are very good and he has a real motor to him in that he never stops," said Linden. "He has a great shot, looks to shoot, can change his angles and plays in all situations. And the coach (Jim Madigan) puts him out in every conceivable situation. He’s still finding his way physically and he can get stronger, but it’s his willingness to work at his game, and with that his confidence continues to grow." That need to develop physically is the key for Gaudette, which makes this coming summer an important one. He'll likely spend at least one more season in the NCAA and after that he might transition to the AHL.

Jayson Megna replaced Jannik Hansen on the first power play.

Hansen was moved down to the second unit in a move that had many scratching their heads. The 27-year-old has only four goals and seven points in 41 games this season.

Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 28 shots on Sunday night in a loss to Philadelphia.

Miller allowed the first three goals of the game and has now lost three of his past four. His record drops to 16-17-3 with a 2.61 goals against average and .917 save percentage.

Jannik Hansen scored in the Canucks'3-2 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday night.

Hansen buried his sixth of the year midway through the second period, breaking a four-game pointless drought. The 30-year-old has 13 points in 27 games this season.
Feb 20 - 12:44 AM

Philip Larsen and Alex Biega will be scratched against the Flyers on Sunday.

Unfortunately, there isn't a lack of fantasy value between these oft-scratched players.
Feb 19 - 7:47 PM

Reid Boucher will tag in for Jack Skille on Sunday against the Flyers.

Through six games with the Canucks this season, Boucher is still looking for his first points. He has nine shots on net and has averaged just 8:10 of ice time per game as well.
Feb 19 - 2:07 PM

Ryan Miller will face Philadelphia on Sunday.

The veteran netminder has not been nearly as effective this season against Eastern foes. Through 15 games he's 5-7-2 with a .907 save percentage and a 3.02 GAA. So you may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
Feb 19 - 1:58 PM

Sven Baertschi has still yet to start skating after suffering a concussion on February 7.

Cody McLeod elbowed the Canucks winger in the head but received no disciplinary action from the NHL. Baertschi has been one of the few bright spots offensively for Vancouver as he is third on the team in goals and points with 13 and 27 respectively. There is no timetable for his return.
Feb 19 - 8:48 AM

Chris Tanev's first goal of 2016-17 was a big one: the overtime game-winner as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 in overtime on Saturday.

That's just his sixth point in 35 games this season. Tanev is a fantastic defenseman in "reality," but it remains to be seen if he can be a consistent contributor in the box score numbers that matter most in fantasy. It hasn't happened this season.
Feb 19 - 1:32 AM

The Calgary Flames lost 2-1 in overtime to the Vancouver Canucks despite a considerable shot advantage, so Ryan Miller was a big difference-maker.

Miller made 35 out of 36 stops (including two shorthanded and 11 on Flames power plays) to grab just his second win in his past six appearances. The Canucks have allowed 33+ SOG in four of Miller's last five shots, so he's having to overcome quite a bit in net.
Feb 19 - 1:30 AM

Philip Larsen, Alex Biega and Reid Boucher will be scratched against the Flames on Saturday.

Unfortunately, there isn't a lack of fantasy value between these oft-scratched players.
Feb 18 - 7:26 PM

Ryan Miller will take on the Flames on Saturday.

The veteran netminder has run cold once again. Over his last seven games Miller is 1-6 with a shutout, 23 goals against and a porous .901 save percentage.
Feb 18 - 3:13 PM

Markus Granlund registered an assist in a 4-3 loss to St. Louis on Thursday.

Granlund has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. He has 14 goals and 25 points in 58 contests this season.
Feb 17 - 5:46 AM

Jacob Markstrom allowed four goals on four goals on 21 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to St. Louis.

In Markstrom's defense, two of St. Louis' four goals were scored on the power play. The Canucks backup goalie has just one win in his last three outings. He has a 10-11-3 record with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage in 2016-17. Markstrom isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues unless starter Ryan Miller were to suffer an injury.
Feb 17 - 12:09 AM

Bo Horvat found the back of the net in his return to the Canucks lineup.

Horvat missed one game because of a lower-body injury, but he didn't miss a beat. His goal at the 10:15 mark of the first period tied the game one. Unfortunately for the Canucks, they came up on the short end of tonight's result. Horvat finished the contest with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal in 18:41 of ice time. The young forward has 18 goals and 39 points in 57 games.
