Patrik Allvin called up the Latvian Phenom Arturs Silovs to palliate Thatcher Demko's loss. The young Canucks netminder had the opportunity to guard the Canucks' cage on five occasions in 2022-2023, but it hasn't been the case in 2023-2024.

Ever since Demko was injured, Casey DeSmith has been the go-to man, and he's been excellent. Named among the league's best goaltenders for his work over the last week, he may have earned a well-deserved break, and Rick Tocchet addressed this possibility following the team's optional skate earlier.
The Canucks will be playing the Ducks on Sunday, and the sense is that if the Canucks have their playoffs spot locked, the young Silovs could be getting his first NHL start since the end of the 2022-2023 campaign:
Tocchet on Silovs getting a start: 'I've talked to Clarkie and it could be the next game. We haven't specifically said. But he will definitely be in the net here in the next few days." Certainly feels like early start vs Anaheim on Sunday has Silovs written all over it #Canucks

Silovs, 23, played hero at the 2023 World Championship, carrying the Latvians to their first-ever medal. The 2022-2023 Abbotsford Canucks MVP had his flashes this season, but his inconsistency might have been what prevented him from getting NHL starts. Ian Clarke seems confident in Silovs' ability; with the work he's done thus far with the Canucks' netminders, we should trust him.
