Off The Post: Thatcher Demko, Vancouver Canucks – In the latest edition of Off The Post, Thatcher Demko speaks with hockey media following the Vancouver Canucks‘ victory earlier this week. This was Demko’s NHL playoff debut and now has Vancouver locked in a Game Seven battle with the Vegas Golden Knights, with the winner to the next playoff round.
Demko has stayed with the Canucks organization since he was drafted by the team in 2014 (in the second round). After this, Demko chose to remain at Boston College for two more years before entering the Canucks system, starting his pro career with Utica of the AHL. Demko spent two full seasons with the farm club, posting a combined 47 wins in 91 games. During the second of those seasons (2017-18), Demko received a one-game audition from the parent club, which he won.
In 2018-19, Demko split his time between Vancouver and Utica, earning a combined 12-8-2 record over 25 games between the two clubs. This was his last time in the AHL, as the 2019-20 shortened season saw Demko play full time in the NHL and post a 13-10-2 record over 27 games and mark a 3.06 GAA.
Demko, who has the hobby in his blood (his dad previously worked for Upper Deck), has become a must-have for collectors who are clamoring for his Young Guns RC, along with a variety of autographs and memorabilia cards. Additional playoff success will only push his favor with the hockey market even higher!
