Week of February 7-13

Great Options

Juuse Saros - Nashville Predators: Saros has posted a save percentage above .900 in his past five outings. He also picked up wins in four of those five games. In his last game against the Vancouver Canucks on February 1st, Saros made 30 saves on 32 shots to help his team earn a victory. Saros has been pretty consistent in putting up solid stats since the start of 2022 and thus, he is a must-start in net. He has a record of 24-11-3. Saros’ save percentage is at .927 and his GAA currently sits at 2.35. Nashville has two matchups this upcoming week, one against the Dallas Stars and the other against the Winnipeg Jets.

John Gibson - Anaheim Ducks: Gibson only has one win in his past three games, but his individual performance in those games has been great. Regardless of the final outcome, the lowest save percentage he posted in his last three appearances was .929. Back on January 29th against the Ottawa Senators, Gibson made an impressive 44 saves on 45 shots. He has a record of 15-10-8, along with a save percentage of .922 and a GAA of 2.49. This week the Anaheim Ducks have just one game on Friday against the Seattle Kraken. This matchup gives Gibson plenty of opportunity to post great numbers.

Petr Mrazek - Toronto Maple Leafs: Mrazek had a good showing in his last game against the New Jersey Devils on January 31st. During that matchup he allowed just one goal on 20 shots. Even on nights when Mrazek is inconsistent, his team bails him out. As a result, the 29-year-old is currently on a three-game win streak. The Maple Leafs are on a five-game win streak and this is a great time to capitalize on the team’s momentum. Mrazek has a record of 5-2-0. Through his seven starts he has accumulated a save percentage of .902 and a GAA of 2.94. This upcoming week the Maple Leafs will play the Carolina Hurricanes, Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks.

Good Options

Jack Campbell - Toronto Maple Leafs: Campbell had a tough showing against the New Jersey Devils on January 31st. During that game, he allowed three goals on just nine shots and was pulled after playing just under 10 minutes. However, he followed that up with a great showing against the Devils on February 1st. The second time around he allowed just one goal on 32 shots. Campbell has not been playing his best hockey since the middle of January. In fact, the February 1st game was the first time he posted a save percentage above .900 in five outings. However, it is important to note that Campbell did have some consistently solid performances earlier in the season and perhaps his last game against the Devils could be a turning point. He has a record of 21-6-3, along with a save percentage of .925 and a GAA of 2.30.

Thatcher Demko - Vancouver Canucks: Demko did not have his best performance in his last appearance against the Nashville Predators on February 1st. During that game he allowed four goals on 28 shots and finished his night with a save percentage of .857. However, in the three games prior he played pretty well. Demko also struggled a bit during the beginning of January, so the start of 2022 has been largely inconsistent for the 26-year-old. He has a record of 17-15-2. Demko’s save percentage sits at .917 and he has a GAA of 2.62. Vancouver will play the Arizona Coyotes, New York Islanders and Toronto Maple Leafs this next week.

Carter Hart - Philadelphia Flyers: Hart finally found himself in the win column this past week. He picked up two back-to-back victories against the Los Angeles Kings and Winnipeg Jets. Even during Philadelphia’s 13-game losing streak, it was evident that Hart’s performance was not the problem. He has the ability to put up solid numbers, but those numbers often end up being deflated as a result of the team that surrounds him. Hart has a record of 9-14-5. His save percentage sits at .915 and his GAA is at 2.80. The Flyers will play the Detroit Red Wings twice this week and this might be the perfect opportunity to roll the dice on Hart, as he will try to turn his two consecutive wins into a streak.

Bad Options

Jordan Binnington - St. Louis Blues: Binnington played his last game back on January 24th against the Calgary Flames. During that game he allowed a whopping seven goals on 35 shots in 40 minutes of play. This was not just one off occurrence. In his second-most recent start on January 15th, he allowed six goals on 40 shots against the Toronto Maple Leafs. When factoring in how well Ville Husso is playing in net for the Blues, there are serious questions about Binnington’s future. He has a record of 11-9-3. His save percentage sits at .901 and his GAA is at 3.27. the Blues will play the New Jersey Devils and the Chicago Blackhawks this upcoming week.

New Jersey Devils: New Jersey as a team has been struggling in the crease, and none of their goaltending options are proving to be successful. Prior to being placed on IR, Blackwood allowed four goals on just 14 shots in his last game on January 19th against the Arizona Coyotes. He seemed to be the go-to in the crease for New Jersey. More recently, Jon Gillies had a tough showing in his last game. He allowed six goals on 28 shots against the Toronto Maple Leafs on February 1stAkira Schmid has also struggled between the pipes whenever he gets the call. There are glaring concerns for the Devils surrounding this position and as of now there is no reason to consider them in any fantasy scenario. New Jersey has a packed week ahead of them, as they play the Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadiens, St. Louis Blues, and Pittsburgh Penguins.
