Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Grabs helper in team debut
Zadorov recorded an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Zadorov's first game as a Canuck was also a return to Calgary, just two days after the Flames traded him away. The 28-year-old blueliner ended his Flames tenure on a seven-game point drought, but he was able to get on the scoresheet by setting up Elias Pettersson's empty-net goal in the third period to seal Vancouver's win Saturday. Zadorov has seven points, 41 hits, 21 blocked shots, 29 shots on net, 23 PIM and a minus-4 rating over 22 appearances this season. He was listed on the third pairing alongside Tyler Myers in this contest, but both Zadorov and Myers are filling top-four roles on the ice for the Canucks.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Tyler Myers: Snags helper
Myers posted an assist, three shots on goal and five blocked shots in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Myers reached the 10-assist mark on Elias Pettersson's empty-net tally in the third period. Six of Myers' helpers this season have come over the last nine games as he continues to provide steady offense. He was paired with newcomer Nikita Zadorov on Saturday -- that duo could serve as a physical force on the blue line. Myers has 12 points to go with 45 blocked shots, 38 hits, 26 shots on net, 24 PIM and a plus-11 rating through 25 outings this season.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Brock Boeser: Logs assist Saturday
Boeser notched an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Boeser is on a four-game point streak, picking up four goals and two assists in that span. The winger set up Quinn Hughes on the first goal of the contest. Boeser has provided elite goal-scoring with 17 tallies, but he's also managed 11 helpers, 67 shots on net and a plus-9 rating through 25 contests. He has been a steady offense-only option for fantasy managers.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Filip Hronek: Dishes two helpers
Hronek registered two assists, two shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Hronek continues to provide steady offense with a goal and six helpers over his last six games. He assisted on the Canucks' first two goals in this contest. Hronek is up to 25 points in as many outings while adding 54 shots on net, 29 blocked shots, 21 hits, 14 PIM and a plus-14 rating. The 26-year-old is on track to shatter his previous career high of 39 points, and it doesn't look like the addition of Nikita Zadorov is going to have a negative impact on Hronek's usage....

Canucks' Quinn Hughes: Strikes early in win
Hughes scored a goal in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Hughes' 11-game point streak ended Tuesday versus the Ducks, and he was also held scoreless Thursday against the Golden Knights. He quickly made sure the drought ended at two contests, scoring just 2:08 into Saturday's victory. The goal was Hughes' career-high ninth of the campaign, putting him at 34 points through 25 contests. The defenseman has added 73 shots on net, 19 blocked shots and a plus-18 rating. Even if his goal-scoring pace drops, his presence in a strong offense with an elite power play should keep him on track for a career year in nearly every category.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Sam Lafferty: Goal, assist in win
Lafferty scored a goal, dished an assist, added two hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Lafferty seems to adjust well when moved into a top-line role. His last three points -- over a span of five games -- have come when he's playing alongside Elias Pettersson. Lafferty has been solid this season with six tallies, six assists, 30 shots on net, 31 hits, 22 PIM and a plus-13 rating through 25 outings, though he's mostly been in a bottom-six role.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Ilya Mikheyev: Earns two points
Mikheyev scored a goal on five shots, dished an assist, logged two hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Mikheyev set up a Sam Lafferty goal in the first period and then added a tally of his own in the second. Over his last five outings, Mikheyev has four points and 11 shots on net. The 29-year-old winger is up to eight goals, six helpers, 46 shots and a plus-3 rating through 21 appearances. He's been a fixture on the left wing alongside Elias Pettersson this season, a position that should continue to be fruitful for Mikheyev's offense.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Elias Pettersson: Collects two points in win
Pettersson scored an empty-net goal on three shots, added an assist and went plus-3 in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Pettersson earned his first multi-point effort since Nov. 9, though it took a post-game scoring change to confirm it. The empty-net tally was initially credited to Nikita Zadorov before it was changed to Pettersson in the end. The 25-year-old Pettersson is up to 10 goals, 32 points, 57 shots on net, 32 hits, 18 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 25 outings. While he's not leading the Canucks in points, he's been excellent in a top-line role so far.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Yields three goals in win
Demko allowed three goals on 23 shots in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Demko had an excellent start going until Elias Lindholm scored twice over the final five minutes of the game. Nonetheless, Demko earned his fourth win in his last six outings, though this was the first time he's given up multiple goals in a win since Nov. 15. The 27-year-old netminder has a 12-6-0 record with a 2.26 GAA and a .924 save percentage over 18 starts this season. The Canucks' next game is at home against the Devils on Tuesday.... See More ...

Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Tending twine versus Flames
Demko will protect the road goal versus the Flames on Saturday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.
Demko faced a barrage in his start Thursday versus Vegas, giving up four goals on 44 shots in a loss. He's had mixed results lately with a 2.88 GAA and a .901 save percentage over his last eight games, though some regression was expected after his stellar first month of the season. The Flames have won five of their last eight contests, including a victory over the Canucks -- with Casey DeSmith in goal -- on Nov. 16.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Matt Irwin: Sent back down
Irwin was reassigned to AHL Abottsford on Friday, per CapFriendly.
Irwin has yet to see any NHL action this season after scoring five points in 61 games with Washington last year. The 36-year-old has two points in 13 AHL appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Brock Boeser: Collects helper
Boeser registered an assist in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Boeser has four goals and an assist over his last three games, following a span in which he had just one helper over five contests. The 26-year-old winger is at 17 tallies, 27 points, 66 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 24 appearances this season. Boeser probably won't shoot 25.8 percent over the full campaign, but his top-six spot in a strong offense should allow him to sustain a career year.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' J.T. Miller: Registers helper in loss
Miller produced an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Miller set up Andrei Kuzmenko's tally in the third period, which was all the Canucks could put on the scoreboard. With six assists over his last three games, Miller has eased the concern over his season-worst four-game goal drought. The 30-year-old has played a starring role in a strong offense with 36 points, 56 shots on net, 49 hits, 19 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a plus-10 rating over 24 appearances this season.... See More ...

Canucks' Andrei Kuzmenko: Deposits only goal in loss
Kuzmenko scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Kuzmenko has had an eventful week or so -- he was scratched twice and endured a four-game point drought before his goal Thursday. The 27-year-old winger ended the contest with 17:27 of ice time, his highest mark of November, and the goal has to help in regards to getting out of head coach Rick Tocchet's doghouse. Kuzmenko is up to four tallies, 15 points, 32 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 21 contests. Given his scoring capabilities, fantasy managers would be shrewd to check to see if an impatient rival cut ties with the winger during his recent stint in the press box.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Under siege against Vegas
Demko stopped 40 of 44 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Vegas doubled up Vancouver in shots, and Demko wasn't able to be the difference in this contest. He's allowed 15 goals over his last six games, giving up exactly four goals in each of his three losses in that span. The American netminder slipped to 11-6-0 with a 2.22 GAA and a .926 save percentage through 17 contests. The Canucks' next game is in Calgary on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Dealt to Vancouver
Zadorov was traded from the Flames to the Canucks on Thursday in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2024 and a third-round pick in 2026.
Zadorov reportedly wanted a trade out of Calgary, where he's been stuck in a bottom-four role this year, and now he's gotten his wish. He'll land in an excellent situation with the Canucks, where he can be penciled into a second-pairing role once he joins the team. Zadorov has picked up six points, 29 shots on net, 41 hits, 19 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a minus-6 rating over 21 outings with the Flames this year, which was his third season with the team. Jordan Oesterle should see more time with the Flames going forward, while Mark Friedman and Noah Juulsen figure to lose playing time for the Canucks.... See More ... See Less
