When the Canucks selected the Latvian-born goaltender Arturs Silovs in the 6th round of the 2019 Draft, nobody where they were headed with that selection. Today, it's looking like a steal.

AN UNLIKELY STORY

Silovs was coming off an 8-11 season in Latvia's top league, where he managed a 0.914 save percentage when the Canucks picked. It's still a project at that point, but he's been blooming since then and has developed into a diamond ever since he came to North America to perfect his game. From the ECHL to the AHL, working alongside the Canucks' goaltending coach Ian Clark, his latest progress has us believing he may just be the next Canucks' starter.

The Canucks issued a post earlier today that explained Silovs' journey from his native Latvia to the world's top league of hockey.


"You always had to be ready, always had to compete, and I think that's the reason which gave me a boost later in life."

Arturs Silovs shares his journey from Latvia to the NHL.

While the Abbotsford Canucks have had a solid start to their season, Silovs is running a 0.890 save percentage while posting a 4-1-1 record.
