The Vancouver Canucks have confirmed that Jacob Markstrom will be in goal tonight in the all-Canadian matchup against the Edmonton Oilers.

Markstrom has won back-to-back games but has struggled in his career against the Oilers, posting a 4-3-1 record with a 3.04 goals against average and .905 save percentage. The Swedish netminder might fair better with the Oilers struggling but will be a tough start in fantasy leagues on the road. He has a 12-14-5 record with a 2.72 goals against average and .909 save percentage overall.

Bo Horvat (ankle) has been ruled out of tonight's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

The good news is that there is still a possibility of seeing him on Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets. The Canucks must be itching to get him back in the lineup considering he picked up 20 points in 28 games before his injury.

Henrik Sedin is an Oiler killer.

In 93 career games against Edmonton, Sedin has registered a very impressive 83 points. And guess who the Canucks play Saturday night? That's right. The Oilers. We'll play the historical card and start Sedin Saturday evening.

Jacob Markstrom will get the start Saturday night against Edmonton.

He is coming off a 21-save, 3-2 win overtime win against Minnesota. Markstrom is now on a two-game win streak heading into Saturday night's affair and has a 12-14-5 record with a 2.72 GAA and .909 SP overall.
Jan 20 - 2:11 PM

Brandon Sutter scored the overtime winner for the Canucks Sunday.

It was his first game back after missed 21 games with a groin injury. He has three goals and seven points in 24 games this season so he really has little, if any, fantasy value.
Jan 15 - 8:34 AM

Jacob Markstrom made 21 saves on 23 shots to help the Canucks edge Minnesota 3-2 in overtime.

That's two straight wins for the 27-year-old after dropping his previous four. Markstrom improves to 12-14-5 this season with a 2.72 goals against average and .909 save percentage.
Jan 14 - 11:37 PM

Thomas Vanek scored his 13th goal of the season in Sunday's overtime win against Minnesota.

Vanek now has 13 goals and 32 points in 45 games this season. The 33-year-old has a minus-15 rating this season, but now has three points in his last two games. Vanek scored the tying goal late in the third period to help Vancouver scrape out the road victory.
Jan 14 - 10:55 PM

Daniel Sedin will sit out Sunday night's tilt against the Wild due to back spasms.

The 37-year-old has 10 goals and 29 points in 44 games this season, and will be missed as the Canucks face Devan Dubnyk and the Wild. Sedin has not missed a game since the 2013-14 season.
Jan 14 - 7:34 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have confirmed that Jacob Markstrom will be in goal tonight against the Minnesota Wild.

Markstrom's last start was a 5-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. A win tonight would mark the first time he won back-to-back games since the start of December. The Swedish goaltender has a 11-14-5 record with a 2.75 goals against average and .908 save percentage.
Jan 14 - 1:12 PM

Head coach Travis Green has announced that center Brandon Sutter will make his return to the lineup after missing 19 games with a groin injury.

Sutter hasn't played since Nov. 24 and has only picked up six points in 23 games so far this season. He'll likely be eased back into the swing of things and take on a larger role in a couple of games.
Jan 14 - 1:10 PM

Henrik Sedin has been productive since mid-November despite not scoring a single goal.

Henrik has always been known as the playmaking twin, but his stats since mid-November are a little extreme, even for him. In 24 games, Sedin has registered a healthy 24 assists, but he has not bulged the twine even once over that period of time. Strange stat, but true. We are certainly enjoying the Sedin renaissance, but don't expect many goals from Henrik.
Jan 13 - 2:15 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have announced that forward Nikolay Goldobin has been assigned to Utica of the AHL.

Goldobin is a former first round pick of the San Jose Sharks and was acquired by the Canucks in the deal that sent forward Jannik Hansen to San Jose. Goldobin has only managed to pick up two goals and four points in 14 games this season. The Canucks just want their young forward playing over their five-day break that begins on Jan. 15.
Jan 13 - 12:16 PM

Jacob Markstrom allowed two goals on 29 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The evening didn't get off to a great start for Markstrom, as he gave up a soft power play goal to Seth Jones in the first period. But thanks to a four-goal second period, the Canucks managed to jump ahead and never look back. The win snaps Markstrom's personal three-game losing skid and improves his overall record to 11-14-5 on the season. He'll head into his next appearance with a 2.75 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage.
Jan 12 - 9:57 PM

Thomas Vanek picked up a pair of assists in Friday's 5-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Both of Vanek's assists came while the Canucks were on the power play. He notched the primary helper on Sven Baertschi's goal that tied the game at one and he also helped set up Brendan Gaunce's marker to make it 3-2 for the Canucks. Vanek finished the game with a minus-1 rating and four shots on goal in 13:39 of ice time. The veteran now has 12 goals and 31 points in 44 games with the Canucks this season.
Jan 12 - 9:51 PM

Derrick Pouliot will be a healthy scratch in Friday night's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

This will be the second straight game he watches from the press box. The 23-year-old has two goals, 11 points and a minus-13 rating in 39 games this season. Michael Chaput and Alex Biega are also expected to watch the game from the press box.
