A huge move by the Vancouver Canucks. While 16 other teams are enjoying the chance at a Stanley Cup…our local pro hockey club is in a rebuild or retool or implosion.
A shot of good news today when it was announced that one of their top prospects, goalie Thatcher Demko has agreed to a 3 year deal with the team. He is widely regarded as a potential top goalie in the NHL.
Demko spent three seasons playing US college puck for Boston College (the same school as Cory Schneider!).
Ryan Biech at VancityBuzz says, “Demko took home the Mike Richter Award, which was given to the most outstanding goaltender in Division 1 NCAA hockey.”
“Demko is regularly regarded as the best goaltending prospect outside of the NHL.”
