Markstrom injury forces Canucks to acquire goalie at trade deadline

Jacob Markstrom has arguably been the MVP of the Vancouver Canucks this season, but it looks like they’ll be heading down the stretch without him.

The star goalie missed today’s practice in Montreal and reports out of Vancouver say he has a torn meniscus.


According to TSN 1040, he could miss between 3-4 weeks with the injury.

Benning confirmed in a post-deadline press conference that Markstrom was hurt during the Bruins game, underwent an MRI in Montreal and is now flying back to Vancouver to meet with team doctors.


News of the injury started to surface after the Canucks made a last-minute trade to acquire Louis Domingue from the New Jersey Devils.

Vancouver sent American Hockey League goalie Zane McIntyre the other way.


Domingue, 27, has played 16 games for the Devils this season, posting a 3-8-2 record alongside a 3.79 GAA and 0.882 save percentage.

He’ll assume the backup role behind Thatcher Demko, who will likely get the majority of starts until Markstrom returns to the lineup.
