Brock Boeser left Sunday's game against Calgary after taking a shot off his foot.

Boeser took a snapshot off the foot and could not put any weight on it afterwards. He crawled to the bench and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Jacob Markstrom will be between the pipes for Sunday's game against division rival Calgary.

Markstrom is 9-10-3 this season with a 2.57 goals against average and .912 save percentage. He halted a two-game slide last Thursday with a 34-save victory over San Jose.

It appears that Erik Gudbranson is nearing a return from his upper-body injury that has cost him 11 games.

Gudbranson spoke to the media and mentioned that he is hoping to play tomorrow but nothing is confirmed yet. With zero points in 21 games this season, it's safe to say that Gudbranson will never live up to the hype that got him drafted third overall in 2010. However, the 25-year-old blueliner has developed into a steady rearguard at the back end but doesn't do anything that would warrant him being on any fantasy squads.

Brock Boeser has been a force on the Canucks' power play this season.

After a power-play marker Friday night against the Sharks, Boeser now has 14 points when the Canucks have the man advantage. To give you an indication how significant that is for Vancouver, Henrik Sedin led all Canuck players last season with 15 power-play points. Boeser has 49 more games to play to pass that mark.

Jacob Markstrom stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over the San Jose Sharks.

It was a solid performance by Markstrom who capped it off with his second assist of the season on Sam Gagner's overtime winner with just 26 seconds remaining in the extra period. Markstrom has now won three of his last five starts, and is now sporting a 9-10-3 record with a 2.57 goals against average and .912 save percentage.

Both Henrik and Daniel Sedin picked up three assists each in a 4-3 overtime win over the San Jose Sharks.

The twins picked up a pair of assists on both on Markus Granlund's goals, and then another pair of assists on Brock Boeser's 17th goal of the season. Henrik Sedin is now up to 22 points in 33 games this season, with 15 of them coming in his last 13 games. He's well worth picking up in fantasy leagues if his slow start put him on your waiver wire.

Jacob Markstrom is expected to get the start in Friday's game against the San Jose Sharks.

Markstrom has dropped each of his last two starts and he's give up eight goals in those games. He has an 8-10-3 record with a 2.56 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage this season.
Dec 15 - 7:56 PM

Michael DiPietro was cut from Team Canada's WJHC roster.

DiPietro stopped eight of nine shots he faced in Friday's selection camp game against Denmark, but it wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the team. The 18-year-old was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the third round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. He'll return to OHL's Windsor Spitfires. With DiPietro now out of the picture, Team Canada will roll into the tournament with Carter Hart (Flyers) and Colton Point (DAL) between the pipes.
Dec 15 - 7:48 PM

Brandon Sutter (upper body) is expected to be out for another seven-to-10 days.

Sutter has been sidelined since Nov. 24. He has two goals and six points in 23 games in 2017-18.
Dec 15 - 2:31 PM

Chris Tanev's previously unspecified injury is a groin strain.

Tanev is expected to be sidelined for two-to-three weeks. He has two goals and six points in 25 games this season.
Dec 15 - 2:30 PM

Vancouver has summoned Ashton Sautner from the minors.

Sautner has a goal and three points in 21 AHL games this season. The 23-year-old might make his NHL debut on Friday.
Dec 14 - 2:34 PM

Chris Tanev is dealing with an injury.

Tanev is questionable for Friday's contest as a result. He has two goals and six points in 25 games in 2017-18.
Dec 14 - 2:33 PM

Anders Nilsson allowed seven goals on 48 shots in Wednesday's 7-1 loss against the Predators.

The Vancouver rearguards didn't offer much resistance and Nilsson faced a lot of rubber as a result. Frustration boiled over in the third period as the netminder cracked his stick over the crossbar after a goal, with part of the stick flying into the crowd. The seven goals allowed represented a new career worst.
Dec 14 - 2:35 AM

Alexander Burmistrov scored a power-play goal in the team's 7-1 home loss against Nashville.

Apparently Burmistrov doesn't want to spend any more time in the press box. He has been in and out of the lineup as a healthy scratch, going scoreless in his previous 10 outings dating back to Oct. 26. He might need a little more production to completely exit Travis Green's doghouse, but this was a start.
Dec 14 - 2:31 AM

Derrick Pouliot was scoreless with a minus-5 rating in Wednesday's 7-1 loss against the visiting Predators.

Pouliot is scoreless with a minus-8 rating in four games since his career-high three-point night back on Dec. 5 against the Hurricanes. He is scoreless in nine of his past 10 games and is best left to the waiver wire in all but the very deepest fantasy pools.
