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

Settles on two-year extension

April 24, 2019
Demko signed a two-year contract extension with the Canucks on Wednesday, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports. The deal is worth $1.05 million annually.
ANALYSIS
According to Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver, Demko -- who went 4-3-1 with a 2.81 GAA and .913 save percentage through nine games this season -- should make roughly one-third of the starts for the Canucks in 2019-20 as the understudy to Jacob Markstrom. Those plans could always change if injuries strike, though we at least know he's the clear frontrunner for the backup goalie gig at the expense of Richard Bachman and junior prospect Michael DiPietro.

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.
