Vancouver Canucks Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Roussel picked up an assist in Thursday's shootout win over the Kings.
Impact: Roussel has six points in his past 10 contests, a scoring rate much higher than we're used to seeing. He has 24 points through 54 games this season, and is in line to crack the 30-point mark for the first time in his career. That's not his main contribution though, as he leads the NHL with 112 PIM.
News: The Canucks recalled Schenn from AHL Utica on Friday.
Impact: With Chris Tanev (leg) landing on injured reserve, the Canucks have summoned the services of another defenseman ahead of Saturday's game against the Sharks. There's nothing at this point to suggest another blueliner is dealing with an injury, so Schenn could end up as a healthy scratch.
News: Pettersson tallied a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 victory over Los Angeles.
Impact: Pettersson has been tearing it up since returning from a knee injury in late-January, adding 11 points in his last 10 games, including a pair of power-play goals. The 19-year-old is a near lock for the Calder Trophy at this point and seems poised to push the Canucks into a wild-card spot.
News: Gaudette notched a goal and a helper against the Kings on Thursday.
Impact: A slow start to the year saw Gaudette bumped down to the minors; however, the youngster appears to have picked it up of late, as he has five points in his previous nine contests, despite logging a mere 8:51 of ice time per game. The emergence of Elias Pettersson has pushed Gaudette into the background a little, but he remains a top prospect for the Canucks and should take on a bigger role in the future.
News: Markstrom made 35 saves against 38 shots Thursday, securing a 4-3 shootout win over Los Angeles.
Impact: Markstrom posted another quality start in the second half of every goaltender's favorite two-game road trip this season (Southern California), and unlike his recent effort against the punchless Ducks, his teammates didn't waste his effort against the Kings. Lest you think his sharp outings are because of the (lack of) quality of his opposition, he also made 44 saves against the Flames' powerful offense last week. He's playing quality hockey between the pipes right now.
