Vancouver Canucks Thatcher Demko hasn't been able to play since game one of the Canucks first round matchup against the Nashville Predators, and although he is presumably making progress in hopes of a return, it would appear likely that the 28-year-old is unlikely to play in game seven Monday night as the Canucks look to close out their series against the Edmonton Oilers.

What isn't certain is when Demko sustained the injury that has kept him out of the lineup since late April; however, in his absence, twenty-three-year-old Arturs Silovs has filled in admirably, posting a 5-4 record with one shutout, a 2.89 goals against average, and an .898 save percentage.
If Demko's injury is serious, holding him out makes sense. If the Canucks are fortunate enough to make it past the Oilers, he may be available then, or the worst-case scenario is that he's done for the season and he has an entire summer to try to get healthy in the hopes he's good to go by training camp.
Canucks fans may have been sweating as the Canucks rolled through the playoffs. Losing DeSmith and Demko almost simultaneously didn't look good initially; however, as much as the Canucks have played well as a whole, it seems that they'll go as far as Silovs carries them.
