The Vancouver Canucks are gearing up for a challenging second-round series against the Edmonton Oilers, but they might be doing so without star goaltender Thatcher Demko, at least for the start. Recent updates, however, bring a glimmer of hope regarding his return.

Thatcher Demko suffered a significant injury early in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, sparking concerns he might be sidelined for the entire postseason. Yet, recent insights from hockey insider Frank Seravalli suggest there might be a chance for Demko to rejoin the team sooner if the series goes the distance.
"Sources say #Canucks goalie Thatcher Demko is out through at least Game 4 of this Round 2 series vs. #Oilers.

Demko has been skating and progressing. Big week ahead. Earliest possible return is Game 5 and that is probably pushing it. But Games 6-7 get interesting, if necessary."

Demko's recent appearances at practice have ignited hope within the Canucks camp. After returning to the ice, he's been spotted making light movements post-practice sessions, which signals positive strides in his recovery.

As the series unfolds, the performance of the Canucks' current goaltending duo, Arturs Silovs and Casey DeSmith, will be closely scrutinized. Should they falter against the formidable Oilers, the pressure to accelerate Demko's return could intensify, adding another layer of drama to what promises to be an electrifying playoff series.
