Markus Granlund has signed a two-year contract extension with Vancouver.

According to generalfanager.com, the deal is worth $1.8 million. Granlund is set to earn $850,000 in 2016-17 and $950,000 in 2017-18. He posted two goals and one assist in 16 games with the Canucks after he was obtained from Calgary.

Thatcher Demko has inked a three-year, entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

In 39 games with Boston College, Demko posted a 27-8-4 record along with a .935 save percentage and a 1.88 goals-against average during his third season in 2015-16. He captured the 2016 Mike Richter Award as the most outstanding goaltender in NCAA men's hockey. Vancouver selected Demko in the second round (36th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Apr 20 - 4:54 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have inked Troy Stecher to an entry-level contract.

Stecher had eight goals and 29 points in 43 contests with the University of North Dakota in 2015-16. North Dakota won the NCAA championship while Stecher was part of the All-Tournament Team.

The Vancouver Canucks do not intend to move Ryan Miller over the summer.

Miller has one season left on his three-year, $18 million contract. He posted a 2.70 GAA and .916 save percentage in 51 starts this season. He'll turn 36 in July and it wouldn't be surprising to see the roughly decade younger Jacob Markstrom end up with a slim majority of the starts in 2016-17.

Henrik Sedin was playing through a broken finger.

Sedin apparently had other ailments he was dealing with as well. He had 11 goals and 55 points in 74 contests in 2015-16, which was down from 73 points the previous season. It's hard to say how much the injuries hurt Sedin's production, but he's also 35 years old (36 in September), so he's not a safe bet to bounce back to the 70-point mark.
Apr 12 - 4:03 PM

Brock Boeser scored once and added three assists as North Dakota won the NCAA championship with a 5-1 win over Quinnipec.

Boeser was taken in the first round and 23rd overall by the Vancouver Canucks and spent his freshman year leading North Dakota as he had 27 goals and 60 points in just 42 games. He was also a plus-26 this season and has been compared to Patrick Sharp by many scouts as he has natural scoring ability and a quick and accurate shot. It looks like the Canucks got a good one when they selected Boeser.
Apr 10 - 12:04 PM

Derek Dorsett finished his 2015-16 campaign with a bang.

Dorsett picked up a goal and assist, raising his totals to five goals and 16 points in 71 games this season. He also collected a misconduct for squirting Patrick Maroon with water from the bench, for which he was immediately ejected for. The NHL's PIMs leader ends with 177, ranking third on his career high list.
Apr 10 - 2:52 AM

Emerson Etem finished his dismal season with a five game point streak.

Four goals and five points over that span, which raised his total seven goals and 12 points in 36 games with Vancouver. Not bad, but it appears that he's not much of a fantasy asset.
Apr 10 - 2:48 AM

Jannik Hansen fell just a point shy of matching his career high during Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over Edmonton.

Hansen picked up his 22nd goal of the season, giving him 38 points on the campaign. The 30-year-old veteran has yet to crack 40 points.
Apr 10 - 2:46 AM

Matt Barkowski picked up a pair of helpers during Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Oilers.

Bartkowski matched his career high of 18 points in the effort, having posted just four points in the two seasons since reaching such heights.
Apr 10 - 2:45 AM

Jacob Markstrom picked up the 4-3 shootout win over the Oilers in Saturday's season finale.

Markstrom turned away 35 of 38 shots, including 10 of 11 shots on special teams. He finishes the season with a 13-14-4 record and a 2.73 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
Apr 10 - 2:43 AM

Andrey Pedan and Yannick Weber will be scratched against Edmonton on Saturady.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value from either defender. Which is disappointing on both fronts, as Weber showed promise last season and Pedan seems unable to figure out the game's highest level.
Apr 9 - 7:53 PM

Jacob Markstrom will get the nod against Edmonton on Saturday night.

Markstrom has lost four of his last five starts, including six goals to Edmonton on 38 shots on Wednesday. Through three games against the Oilers this season, the backup netminder is 1-2-0 with nine goals against on 96 shots.
Apr 9 - 2:43 PM

Mike Zalewski has been summoned by the Vancouver Canucks.

Zalewski has 14 goals and 30 points in 55 AHL contests this season. He also has an assist in two games with Vancouver.
Apr 8 - 4:17 PM

Derek Dorsett fought Brandon Bollig during the first period of 7-3 loss to Calgary.

Dorsett and Bollig did the tango late in the first period while the game was tied at two, so it doesn't seem as though the League's leader in PIMs had much of an effect on the game. Though he did play 10:05 during the game. Dorsett is now up to 162 PIMs in 69 games this season.
