Published April 1, 2024 at 8:51 PM

Thatcher Demko has been sidelined since the beginning of March and since he was moved to the Canucks Long Term Injury Reserve, he'll be on the sidelines at the very least, until April 4th.

Earlier, Rick Tocchet revealed that the netminder's recovery was going as good as expected, perhaps even better as he was a little ahead of schedule. However, Tocchet then stated that Demko would remain in Vancouver to continue his recovery process.

Later on, the Canucks released a preview of the team landing in Vegas in preparation for their game against the Golden Knights and as it turns out, the camera did land a few times on Demko. Therefore confirming that he was a part of the team's week-long roadtrip.

The Canucks have not yet made any sort of announcement in that regard. Up to this point, the team has been carrying three goalies and the NHL's policies (LTIR Guidelines), Demko can't return before the 4th, meaning he won't be technically available until the game 3rd game of the roadtrip.
