Observations

January 2019 – If there is one position in the Canucks’ pipeline that is stacked, it’s in net. With Thatcher Demko recently ascending to the NHL and Michael Dipietro poised to begin his professional career next fall, the pieces are in place for sustained success in the crease. That gives the organization the luxury of being patient with their 2018 seventh round selection, Thiessen. The Manitoba-native transitioned from Jr. A to the USHL this past season and the results have been up and down. The 18-year-old has posted a 0.890 save percentage in 25 games for Dubuque. That number doesn’t exactly scream NHL-prospect, but it represents the fourth-best output by U19 starters in the league. Thiessen will head to the University of Maine next fall where he should fall in as the number two behind junior, Jeremy Swayman. Cam Robinson
