Card #TD1 Thatcher Demko - .985 Save Percentage. Only 500 printed!
On Sept. 1, 2020, with Vancouver facing elimination in their playoff series vs. Las Vegas, news was swirling before the contest that rookie goaltender Thatcher Demko was being considered for the start between the pipes in place of their regular starter Jacob Markstrom. Sure enough, Vancouver head coach Travis Green tabbed Demko for Game 5, and the team's 2nd round pick in the 2014 Draft was ready to rise to the occasion.
With a clutch 42-save effort, Demko backstopped Vancouver to a 2-1 win to give the team new life. He also became just the 15th goalie in history to make his first start in a playoff elimination game and win.
Thatcher would go on to start two more games in the series and this card salutes his all-time playoff record .985 save percentage (min. 3 games).
Card #TD2 Thatcher Demko - .64 GAA. Only 500 printed!
The 2020 second-round playoff series between Vancouver and Las Vegas could easily be relabeled as the Thatcher Demko Showcase Series.
Inserted into Vancouver's starting lineup in Game 5 with his team down 3 games to 1, Demko re-energized Vancouver with goaltending magnificence.
Thatcher left Las Vegas repeatedly bewildered in the final three games of the series and compiled a playoff record 0.64 goals against average (minimum 3 games).
Card #TD3 Thatcher Demko - 48-save shutout - most non-OT playoff game. Only 500 printed!
Following Thatcher's clutch performance to help Vancouver avoid elimination in Game 5 of their first-round 2020 playoff series vs. Las Vegas, the question was, could Thatcher and his teammates come up big again in Game 6? As it turned out, another powerful message was sent loud and clear to Las Vegas as Thatcher stopped 48 shots – the most in a non-OT playoff game – and notched his first career playoff shutout as Vancouver forced a deciding Game 7 with a 4-0 rout.
"My job's the same, regardless of the score," Thatcher said afterward. "Just trying to keep pucks out of the net."
Card #TD4 Thatcher Demko - Playoff Performer Only 500 printed!
In September 2020, Vancouver goaltender Thatcher Demko not only etched his name in the team record book, but also in the NHL's history pages.
Unexpectedly tabbed the team's starter in goal for Game 5 of Vancouver's second-round playoff series with Las Vegas (after starter Jacob Markstrom could not go because of injury), Thatcher took full advantage of this shot to establish himself as a money goalie.
Although he and his teammates were staring at a three games to one deficit, Thatcher & Co. staved off elimination two times and nearly earned a trip to the Conference Finals. Thatcher set new league playoff records with a .985 save percentage and 0.64 GAA (minimum 3 games), and in Game 6 registered another all-time mark for the most saves (48) in a non-overtime playoff game.
