Canucks' Markstrom Hopes For Trade

News: In the wake of the team's addition of Ryan Miller, Jacob Markstrom has reportedly asked the Canucks to try to trade him, the Province reports.
Analysis: To that end, the Canucks (who also roster fellow goalie Eddie Lack) are looking into the trade market for Jacob Markstrom, with the report suggesting that there is interest from at least three teams. "We're exploring that for Jacob," GM Jim Benning noted. "But if that doesn't happen, Jacob comes to camp. He has a good attitude. He understands the situation."

Canucks' Markstrom Earns First Career Win

News: Jacob Markstrom stopped 21 of 22 shots for his first career win as the Canucks beat the Flames, 5-1, on Sunday.
Analysis: Acquired in the trade for Roberto Luongo, Jacob Markstrom started three straight games down the stretch before notching his first win in the season finale. Touted as one of the best goalie prospects just a few years ago, Markstrom is getting a chance to establish himself at the NHL level. He will split duties with Eddie Lack next year.

Analysis: Jacob Markstrom, who will start for the third straight game, is looking for his first NHL win since Oct. 11.

Markstrom Battered In Canucks' Loss

News: Jacob Markstrom allowed five goals on just 22 shots (.773) in Saturday's loss at Edmonton.
Analysis: He may eventually develop into a valuable fantasy asset; after all, he's just 24. But his ruinous composite numbers (3.58, .867) this season suggest that he isn't a good investment yet.

Canucks' Markstrom To Start Again Saturday

News: Jacob Markstrom will start again on Saturday following his Canucks debut on Thursday.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom allowed three goals on 27 shots on Thursday. Although his Canucks debut wasn't overly impressive, he will look for a better outcome on Saturday when he takes the ice.

Markstrom Mediocre In Canucks Debut

News: In his first start for Vancouver after being traded for Roberto Luongo at the deadline, Jacob Markstrom surrendered three goals on 27 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Avalanche. The fourth was an empty-netter by John Mitchell.
Analysis: While it's too little, too late for the Orcas this season, Jacob Markstrom has every incentive to prove he's worthy of supplanting Eddie Lack for the starter's gig next year. The 6-6 Swede is hardly to blame for either of Paul Stastny's goals or Tyson Barrie's nifty toe-drag wrister that beat him for the game-winner, but owners certainly won't be happy with his .889 save percentage and loss in his Canucks' debut. Between Florida and Vancouver, Markstrom is now a horrendous 1-6-3 with a .874 save percentage and 3.52 GAA this season. He is slated to start the final two games of the campaign -- both against equally dismal opponents in the Oilers and Flames -- so look for Markstrom to show some resiliency and make the most of his auditions.

Vancouver To Start Markstrom On Thursday

News: Jacob Markstrom will be between the pipes Thursday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: After watching Eddie Lack make the previous 20 starts for the Canucks, Jacob Markstrom will make his first start with his new club Thursday. He's expected to get the starting nod for the final two games as well, making him a good addition the rest of the way in leagues that start multiple goalies.

Canucks' Markstrom Likely To Play Final Games

News: Jacob Markstrom is likely to start the final three games of the season, according to coach John Tortorella.
Analysis: Torts has claimed the "young guys" will play the final three games of the season -- Jacob Markstrom included. The 24-year-old has barely seen any action in the Canucks' crease, as Eddie Lack has made 19 straight starts. Since coming over in a trade from Florida, Markstrom has only appeared once for Vancouver, relieving an ineffective Lack and allowing one goal on five shots in a 6-1 loss to Dallas on March 6.

Jacob Markstrom

Markstrom Makes Canucks Debut

News: Markstorm made his first appearance in a Vancouver uniform on Thursday, coming on in the third period for an ineffective Eddie Lack and allowing one goal on five shots in a 6-1 loss to Dallas.
Analysis: With the Canucks unable to win for Lack recently, it wouldn't be surprising to see the team turn to Jacob Markstrom against Calgary on Saturday, just to try to change up the juju. However, despite his excellent potential, Markstrom's just 1-6-3 with an .872 save mark at the NHL level this year, so it's not likely he's going to displace Lack anytime soon.

Panthers Trade Markstrom To Vancouver

News: Jacob Markstrom was dealt to the Canucks on Tuesday in the blockbuster Roberto Luongo trade, Dan Tencer of 630 CHED reports.
Analysis: The Canucks will exchange their goalie of the present in Luongo for a viable goalie of the future in Jacob Markstrom. The 24-year-old will probably have to settle for a backup role behind Eddie Lack for the rest of this season, but he could have a legitimate chance at settling into a starting role down the line. Markstrom disappointed in limited action with the Panthers earlier this season, going 1-6-3 with a 3.52 GAA and .874 save percentage.

Panthers Send Markstrom Down To AHL

News: Jacob Markstrom has been sent down to AHL San Antonio, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom was called up when Tim Thomas went down with a lower body injury early in December. He had one start in his brief callup and got lit up for five goals on 32 shots against the Jets on Dec. 20.

Markstrom Lit Up In Panthers Loss

News: Jacob Markstrom gave up five goals on 32 shots in the Panthers' 5-2 loss to the Jets on Friday night.
Analysis: It was a disappointing night for Jacob Markstrom, who was given the opportunity to extend the team's five-game winning streak instead of the red-hot Scott Clemmensen. Markstrom has been abysmal this season with a 3.52 goals-against average and .874 save percentage. He will surely be sent down to AHL San Antonio once Tim Thomas is cleared to return.

Panthers Turn To Markstrom On Friday

News: Jacob Markstrom will start between the pipes for Friday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom will make his first start in net for the Panthers since his most recent call-up. He has started 11 games for the Panthers this season, going 1-5-3 with a .877 save percentage and 3.36 GAA. He will look to rebound in his start Friday against the Jets.

Panthers Recall Markstrom

News: The Panthers recalled Jacob Markstrom from AHL San Antonio on Thursday.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom has played in 11 games this season, amassing a record of 1-5-3. He'll need to improve on his .877 save percentage and 3.36 GAA if he wants to stick around this time.

Panthers Send Markstrom Down TO AHL San Antonio

News: The Panthers have sent Jacob Markstrom down to San Antonio of the AHL, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom has given up eight goals in his last two games and is 1-5-3 with a 3.36 GAA and just an .877 save percentage over 11 appearances (eight starts) this season.

Panthers' Markstrom Gives Up Four In OT Loss

News: Jacob Markstrom was less than stellar once again as he gave up four goals on 27 shots in the Panthers' 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers on Tuesday.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom will continue to get the bulk of the starts with Tim Thomas sidelined, but is a bottom of the barrel fantasy starter. His schedule does not get any easier as the Panthers face the Bruins on Thursday.

Panthers' Markstrom In Goal Tuesday

News: Jacob Markstrom will start Tuesday's game in goal against the Oilers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom has had rough luck in goal this season and is riding a streak of six straight decisions without a win. He has an underwhelming .881 save percentage and a 3.29 GAA. Even though he's facing a struggling Edmonton offense, Markstrom's not the best start in net Tuesday.

Markstrom Gives Up Four In Panthers' Loss

News: Jacob Markstrom gave up four goals on 23 shots in the Panthers' 4-0 loss to St. Louis on Friday night.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom has seen more action than he deserves this season, posting an .881 save percentage through 10 games. It certainly doesn't help that he has one of the worst defensive units in the league playing in front of him. Markstrom will continue to see the majority of action while Tim Thomas is sidelined, but expectations should not be high.

Panthers Tab Markstrom For Friday Start

News: Jacob Markstrom will start in goal Friday against St. Louis, the Miami Herald's George Richards reports.
Analysis: Tim Thomas remains out with a leg injury, so Jacob Markstrom will continue to get the bulk of the starts for Florida. The results have not been pretty (he has an .887 save percentage and the Panthers have won just one of the nine games he has appeared in), and things might get worse before they get better considering that the Blues are second in the league in scoring.

Panthers' Markstrom Lets In Three In Loss

News: Jacob Markstrom made 25 saves on 28 shots in a shootout loss to the Lightning on Sunday.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom only has one win on the season, and he has a .887 save percentage and a 3.19 GAA on the year.

Panthers' Markstrom Takes Another Loss

News: Jacob Markstrom saved 20-of-22 shots but took the loss as the Sabres beat the Panthers 3-1 on Friday.
Analysis: It was actually a solid game for Jacob Markstrom who has struggled for the most part this season. Though he ended up with the loss, he's going to need more games like this in the future if he wants to solidify himself as the Panthers' new No. 1 goaltender with Tim Thomas currently on IR. He now has a 3.50 GAA with an .884 save percentage over seven appearances (four starts).

Panthers' Tap Markstrom To Start Friday

News: Jacob Markstrom will start Friday night against Buffalo, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: With Tim Thomas on IR, Jacob Markstrom has a window to solidify his share of the workload for the Panthers in the near future. Getting a matchup against a struggling Buffalo squad certainly doesn't hurt Markstrom's cause Friday night.

Panthers' Markstrom Takes Shootout Loss In Relief

News: Jacob Markstrom entered Tuesday's game against Chicago late in the third period after Tim Thomas was hurt, stopping two of two shots and ending up with a shootout loss.
Analysis: It sounds like the injury may keep Thomas out for a stretch, meaning Jacob Markstrom would regain the starting role in Florida. Unfortunately, he hasn't done too much with his early chances in net this year, having gone 1-3-1 with a GAA north of 3.00 and a save percentage south of .900.

Panthers' Markstrom Lets In Three In Loss

News: Jacob Markstrom gave up three goals on 29 shots in a loss to the Kings on Sunday.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom has had a rough three games in a row, but with Tim Thomas dealing with an injury, the Panthers are going to have to rely on him.

Panthers' Markstrom Expected To Start Sunday

News: Jacob Markstrom is expected to start Sunday against Los Angeles, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: Jacob Markstrom will continue to start while Tim Thomas is day-to-day nursing a groin injury. The 23-year-old netminder is coming off a solid performance in which he stopped 30 of 33 shots in a winning effort against Pittsburgh on Friday.
