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.

Brandon Sutter took a puck to the face and had to leave Tuesday's game against Colorado.

Sutter, like teammate Alex Edler, will be evaluated on Wednesday according coach Willie Desjardins. It has been a tough year for Brandon Sutter.
Feb 10 - 2:02 AM

Alex Edler didn't play the third period after taking a shot to the ankle.

Edler will be re-evaluated on Wednesday according to head coach Willie Desjardins.

Jacob Markstrom stopped 29-of-30 shots in a 3-1 win over Colorado on Tuesday.

The Canucks seem to win when Markstrom is between the pipes. He has wins in four straight starts and five of six overall. At some point, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins is going to have to give him a streak of games. He brings a 9-5-4 record in 19 games into his next start.
Feb 9 - 11:58 PM

Bo Horvat scored his 10th goal and added an assist in a 3-1 win over Colorado on Tuesday.

Horvat snapped the insurance marker for the Canucks off a nice rush created by Luca Sbisa. He now has points in four of his last six games and 14 points in his last 16 contests. Sven Baertschi and Matt Bartkowski scored the other goals for the Canucks.
Feb 9 - 11:47 PM

Coach Willie Desjardins will forego any lineup changes for Tuesday's tilt with Vancouver.

Which means that Jared McCann, Adam Cracknell, and Alex Biega will each be scratched. McCann has posted 12 points as a 19-year-old, which isn't great but respectable for the teen and useful for any dynasty league.
Feb 9 - 8:13 PM

Jacob Markstrom will start Tuesday's match against Colorado.

Markstrom has won his last three appearances, but he hasn't played since Jan. 21 when he led the Canucks to a 4-1 victory over Boston.
Feb 9 - 5:50 PM

Radim Vrbata found himself as a bottom-six forward at practice Monday.

Vrbata has been a top-six forward during his year-and-a-half stay in Vancouver but he was demoted and playing alongside Derek Dorsett and Brandon Sutter at practice Monday. It is likely that he will be dealt at trade deadline as he had a big year in 2014-15 with 31 goals and 63 points but he has been a shell of his former self this season with only 11 goals and 22 points in 50 games, including only one assist in his last seven games.
Feb 9 - 11:00 AM

Yannick Weber has been sent to AHL Utica.

The Canucks made that move after Weber successfully cleared waivers. His demotion corresponded with fellow defenseman Dan Hamhuis returning from facial injuries.
Feb 7 - 6:16 AM

Emerson Etem scored for the Canucks, who fell 4-1 to the Flames on Saturday night.

It took 29 games for Etem to score his first goal of the season. Etem is in a good spot with Vancouver, which is giving younger players a bigger chance down the stretch. Linden Vey and Alex Burrows got the assists.
Feb 7 - 12:51 AM

Ryan Miller gave up two goals on 28 shots in the Canucks’ 4-1 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

Calgary scored twice while Miller was pulled. The Canucks netminder has not won since Jan. 17, a span of five games. That’s what happens on a team that ranks near the bottom in goals per game and is now in the midst of a tryout period with its younger players. Miller has a 2.65 GAA and .914 SV%.
Feb 7 - 12:50 AM

Jared McCann, Adam Cracknell, and Alex Biega will each be scratched from Saturday's match with Calgary.

There's a spot or two of potential fantasy value to be found between these three. Biega has posted 52 hits in 26 games, while Cracknell has a whopping 85 hits in 39 games. McCann has posted 12 points as a 19-year-old, which isn't great but respectable for the teen and useful for any dynasty league.
Feb 6 - 9:02 PM

Dan Hamhuis will return to Vancouver's blue line against Calgary on Saturday.

"And it's been a long couple of months," Hamhuis told Kevin Woodley, "especially the first month dealing with the severity of the injury and the second month getting back into playing shape." Hamhuis has missed the last 21 games after taking a puck to the face. In 27 games this season the veteran defender has accumulated four points, 34 hits, and 43 blocks and he will pair with Luca Sbisa as the team's second defensive unit.
Feb 6 - 8:59 PM

Ryan Miller will face Calgary on Saturday night.

Miller may be just 1-2-2 over his last five starts, but only 11 pucks have beaten him over that stretch. He's fared well against Calgary this season however, going picking up three of four standings points and allowing just four goals on 68 combined shots.

It looks like Linden Vey is sticking with the Canucks even though centers Henrik Sedin and Brandon Sutter are healthy.

Vey even managed to log 16:18 minutes Thursday night, so Vancouver's relative help hasn't forced him into a minimal role. Of course, it helps that Vey has been playing well lately and found the back of the net on Thursday. "I thought that was probably the best game I’ve seen him play in a Canucks uniform (Thursday night)," Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. "I thought he made lots of good, little plays that didn’t turn into goals, but were good plays." He's worth keeping an eye on, although Vey's fantasy value will likely be limited this season.
