2019 Fantasy Outlook
Demko will, barring a crazy turn of events, begin the 2019-20 season as Jakob Markstrom's backup in Vancouver. The young netminder made nine appearances last season and finished the year with a 4-3-1 record, along with a 2.81 GAA and .913 save percentage. Injuries slowed Demko's progress a year ago, but the 23-year-old is expected to play 25-30 games in 2019-20. He profiles as a solid reserve goalie in fantasy, but an injury to Markstrom could quickly raise Demko's fantasy value and ceiling. Keep close tabs on him, and if you're looking for solid netminding value in the later rounds, Demko isn't a bad option (especially in dynasty formats). Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $2.10 million contract extension with the Canucks in April of 2019.
Sets new best for single-game saves

March 10, 2020
Demko stopped 45 of 49 shots in a 5-4 shootout win over the Islanders.
ANALYSIS
Demko was kept busy throughout the game, but he settled in over the final 20 minutes of play and then stopped all three of the Islanders' shootout attempts. The 24-year-old goalie improved to 13-10-2 with a 3.06 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 27 appearances this year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2014
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.
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.
