Week of November 8-14

Great Options

Frederik Andersen - Carolina Hurricanes: Andersen has prolonged his phenomenal start to 2021-2022, as the second month of the NHL season begins. He still remains undefeated and has helped the Carolina Hurricanes remain the only undefeated team left in the league. His record sits at a perfect 8-0-0. During his eight starts he has accumulated a save percentage of .949 and a GAA of 1.50. He has picked up one shutout so far, which was back on October 28th against the Boston Bruins. He also has allowed just one goal in half of the games he has appeared in so far. It is evident that he is riding some great momentum as of current, and thus he remains at the top of the goalie rankings heading into week five.

Sergei Bobrovsky - Florida Panthers: Bobrovsky has also continued his dominant play through the first week of November. He has a record of 6-0-0, during which he posted a save percentage of .948 and a GAA of 1.72. However, at the moment Bobrovsky continues to remain sidelined with an upper body injury that he sustained during a game against the Washington Capitals on November 4th. He is listed as day-to-day, so if he gets back in the lineup then he remains a phenomenal option. He will have four different opportunities to make an appearance this week, as the Panthers play the New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Tampa Bay Lightning.

James Reimer - San Jose Sharks: Reimer has started four games so far, during which he has posted a record of 3-1-0. Although he has started only a handful of games, his stats so far are worth noting. He has a save percentage of .950 and a GAA of 1.54. When considering goalies who have appeared in at least two contests, Reimer has the highest save percentage in the league and the second-lowest GAA. The Sharks play the Calgary Flames, Winnipeg Jets, and Colorado Avalanche this upcoming week.

Jack Campbell - Toronto Maple Leafs: Campbell picked up two consecutive wins in the first week of November, including a shutout against the Vegas Golden Knights on November 2nd. With the exception of October 23rd’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, where Campbell allowed five goals on 21 shots, he has been posting great performances. That Pittsburgh game is the only time this season that Campbell’s single-game save percentage fell below .900. His record sits at 5-2-1. During his eight starts he posted a save percentage of .932 and a GAA of 1.86. Toronto will play four times this week, giving Campbell plenty of opportunities to continue improving his impressive stats. The Leafs will play the Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers, Calgary Flames, and Buffalo Sabres.

Good Options

Elvis Merzlikins - Columbus Blue Jackets: Merzlikins has started five games this season and picked up his only loss of the year back on October 29th against the New York Rangers. The loss to the Rangers was the only time Merzlikins’ single-game save percentage fell below .900. So far this season he has a save percentage of .939 and a GAA of 1.98. The Blue Jackets have only two games this week, one against the Washington Capitals and the other against the New York Rangers. Merzlikins should definitely be considered, especially in a daily fantasy scenario, on those days.

Tristan Jarry - Pittsburgh Penguins: So far this season Jarry has earned seven starts with the Penguins. Through the course of those seven games he has earned a record of 4-2-1. His save percentage currently sits at .930, which puts him top ten in the league when considering goalies that have started at least two games. Jarry’s present GAA is 2.12, which puts him at a couple good performances away from having sub-2.00 GAA. The Penguins have four games this week, which gives Jarry plenty of opportunities to show that he can be a consistently solid goaltender. Pittsburgh will play the Chicago Blackhawks, Florida Panthers, Ottawa Senators, and Washington Capitals.

Bad Options

Marc-Andre Fleury - Chicago Blackhawks: The start of Fleury’s career with the Blackhawks continues to be plagued with poor performances for the reigning Vezina-winner. He has just one win this year, as his record sits at 1-7-0. During the first week of November he picked up two consecutive losses to the Carolina Hurricanes and Winnipeg Jets. He allowed four and five goals in those games respectively. Fleury’s GAA remains very high at 4.11. His save percentage currently sits at .881. It is still far too early in the season to make any glaring generalizations; however, week after week it is evident that Fleury is not finding a fit with Chicago.

Adin Hill - San Jose Sharks: Hill has picked up three consecutive losses through the end of October and beginning of November. Hill’s record now sits at 3-3-0. His save percentage through his six appearances sits at .886 and his GAA is at 3.15. Hill had a particularly concerning performance on October 24th against the Boston Bruins, where he allowed four goals on just 14 shots. It is evident that James Reimer is the better performer so far for San Jose, and thus he should be the goalie of choice between the two Sharks netminders.
