Vancouver Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom underwent a minor lower-body procedure Wednesday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, general manager Jim Benning announced.

Markstrom was injured in Saturday's victory over the Boston Bruins. Thatcher Demko has taken over as Vancouver's starter and won his first start as the club's No. 1 on Tuesday in Montreal.

The Canucks also acquired Louis Domingue before the trade deadline for some insurance in goal.

Markstrom has been solid for the Canucks this season, posting a 23-16-4 record along with a .918 save percentage. He's an impending unrestricted free agent, although Benning has said he hopes to extend the 30-year-old netminder.

Vancouver enters Wednesday's slate of action in the second spot in the Pacific Division, tied with the third-place Edmonton Oilers at 74 points while holding a game in hand.
