Vancouver Canucks Rumors: Insider Links Goalie Trade to 2 Teams

The Vancouver Canucks management group continues to discuss several trade scenarios ahead of the March 3 trade deadline. While most of the attention is on Brock Boeser and JT Miller at the moment, goaltender Thatcher Demko continues to be linked to trade proposals. According to hockey insider Kevin Weekes, there's two teams to watch in the Demko sweepstakes.

The 27-year-old Demko is working his way back from a minor injury and should be game ready in the coming days. He's signed through the 2025-26 season at $5 million, a contract which is very reasonable for a starting netminder.

As for potential destinations, the Penguins make a ton of sense as both Canucks President Jim Rutherford and general manager Patrik Allvin came from the organization. They know Jarry well and could likely get a contract extension completed before this upcoming offseason.
