2018 Fantasy Outlook
In his second pro season, Demko improved his GAA from 2.68 to 2.44. Additionally, his save percentage spiked from .907 to .922 and he was named to the AHL All-Star Game. He's been AHL Utica's starter since leaving Boston College, and the Canucks will continue to groom Demko as their goalie of the future. They'll try to accomplish that by keeping him in the AHL for the 2018-19 season -- where Richard Bachman will back him up -- while Jacob Markstrom and Anders Nilsson handle duties for the big club. Demko is one more year away from the NHL and he's not expected to play a big role for the Canucks this season. Read Past Outlooks

Expected to miss 10 days

Knee
February 7, 2019
Demko (knee) is slated to miss around 10 days due to what's been deemed a "slight sprain."
ANALYSIS
Demko has already been placed on injured reserve, though he's eligible to return whenever healthy. If the 10-day timetable holds true, the netminder would be sidelined until at least Feb. 16 versus the Sharks. He could also be held out through then, which would give him another four days to rest before Feb. 21 against the Coyotes.

2014 Fantasy Outlook
Demko is yet another big (6-foot-4), athletic hybrid/butterfly twinetender with great lateral coverage. He’s strong and aggressive, and loves to challenge shooters. He doesn’t handle the puck very well and he doesn’t always catch the puck clean. But his overall game is very, very good -- his positioning is strong, his focus is sharp and his feet are really quick. Star? Maybe, maybe not. But he's definitely an above-average starter for a solid period of time. He’ll continue to play at Boston College in 2014-15.
