Description: Goaltender Jacob Markstrom has been sent from the Florida Panthers to the Vancouver Canucks in the Roberto Luongo trade.
Insight: The 24-year-old was considered Florida's goalie of the future, but he has gone 11-25-5 with a 3.21 GAA and an .898 SV% in 43 career appearances. Markstrom will be serving as a backup to Eddie Lack on the Canucks, so there's no immediate need to add him in fantasy leagues.

Description: Panthers goalie Jacob Markstrom will man the crease Thursday against the Lightning.
Insight: Starter Tim Thomas suffered a lower-body injury Tuesday and Markstrom saved 25 of 25 shots in relief. The 23-year-old showed flashes last season but finished 8-14-1 with a 3.22 GAA and a .901 SV% in 23 starts. It's too risky to start Markstrom with Florida's shaky defense in front of him.
 
4/23/2013 10:07:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Jacob Markstrom held the Rangers to two goals on 38 shots Tuesday night to snap a personal six-game losing streak.
Insight: The 23-year-old goalie has had his moments this season, but the Panthers will have to put a better defense in front of him if he's going to be a fantasy option next season.
 
4/16/2013 5:25:00 PM
Description: Jacob Markstrom has been confirmed as the starting netminder for Florida's game against the Islanders on Tuesday.
Insight: The 23-year-old goalie has shown flashes of a future top netminder this season, but Florida's terrible defense makes him too risky to start at this juncture of the season.

Description: Florida netminder Jacob Markstrom let in six goals on 23 shots in 32 minutes against the Jets on Thursday.

Hot3/26/2013 6:09:00 PM
Description: Florida netminder Jacob Markstrom, who has made 111 of 114 saves over the last three games, will start Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.
Insight: Markstrom has been tremendous since taking over as Florida's full-time starter following Jose Theodore's injury. He's a risky play most games since the Panthers allow so many SOG, but he's worth the risk in fantasy league's that count saves.
 
3/21/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: Florida netminder Jacob Markstrom made 44 saves on 45 shots Thursday against the Rangers in a 3-1 win.
Insight: Markstrom has won two straight starts with a 1.00 GAA and a .975 SV% on 79 shots. However, it's difficult to trust a Panthers goaltender since the defense allows so many easy looks.
 
3/14/2013 4:41:00 PM
Description: Florida netminder Jacob Markstrom is 1-3-1 with a 3.41 GAA over five starts since being named the starting goaltender. He'll sit Thursday against the Bruins in favor of Scott Clemmensen.
Insight: Florida has been a disaster this season, and it starts with its defense and goaltending. Clemmensen is 2-3-2 with a 4.28 GAA in 11 games. However, he has a 2.20 GAA in his career against the Bruins (654 min).
 
3/7/2013 10:18:00 PM
Description: Florida netminder Jacob Markstrom gave up a goal on each of his first two shots and was pulled from Thursday's game against Washington.
Insight: Scott Clemmensen went on to allow five more goals. Markstrom has promise but we aren't ready to trust a Florida goaltender in fantasy leagues just yet.
 
3/7/2013 5:17:00 PM
Description: Florida will go with Jacob Markstrom in net Thursday against the Capitals.

Description: The Panthers will roll with Jacob Markstrom in net Sunday versus Boston.
Insight: Markstrom, 23, has long been projected as Florida's future starting goaltender. He made his season debut Friday with a 3-1 loss against the Penguins. Florida is currently carrying three goaltenders on the roster but none of the three is a good fantasy option given the state of the Panthers' defense.
