Week of January 10-16

Great Options

Darcy Kuemper - Colorado Avalanche: Kuemper currently has picked up wins in his past seven consecutive starts. During this win streak Kuemper has only failed to post a .900 save percentage one time. He has a record of 16-5-0, along with a save percentage of .912 and a GAA of 2.66. He is playing some very solid hockey right now and is a must-start whenever he is in the crease. The Avalanche will play the Seattle Kraken and Nashville Predators once this week. They will play the Arizona Coyotes twice.

Tristan Jarry - Pittsburgh Penguins: In his past seven appearances Jarry also has seven wins. The 26-year-old goalie has not allowed more than two goals in any of those games. His record currently is at 17-5-4. He has a save percentage of .933 and a GAA of 1.90. The Penguins are riding a 10-game win streak and this is the best time to capitalize on Jarry’s performance level. Pittsburgh plays the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks this upcoming week. All three of those matchups provide Jarry with plenty of opportunity to post some great stats.

Frederik Andersen - Carolina Hurricanes: Andersen had a good showing in his first start of the new year on January 7th against the Calgary Flames. During that game he allowed three goals on 39 shots and exited with a win. So far he has accumulated a record of 18-5-0. Through 23 total appearances Andersen’s save percentage sits at .929 and his GAA is at 1.97. Carolina will play the Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets and Vancouver Canucks this next week. As he returns to being in the Carolina crease consistently, Andersen is an obvious no-brainer.

Jack Campbell - Toronto Maple Leafs: Campbell has won both of his first two games of 2022. This includes a 23-save shutout against the Ottawa Senators on January 1st. He also had an impressive game against the Edmonton Oilers on January 5th. In that game he made 28 saves on 30 shots to end his night with a save percentage of .933. Campbell currently has a record of 17-5-2. He has a save percentage of .939 and a GAA of 1.87. This week the Maple Leafs will face off against the Vegas Golden Knights, Arizona Coyotes and St. Louis Blues.

Good Options

Ilya Sorokin - New York Islanders: Sorokin earned himself a win against the Edmonton Oilers on January 1st. He did not deal with much pressure in that game, as he faced only 19 shots. This was his first game back for the Islanders since December 19th. The Islanders had a very difficult first half of the year and will undoubtedly try and make a big push in 2022. Thus, this might be a good time to roll the dice on Sorokin. He has a record of 8-7-5, along with a save percentage of .925 and a GAA of 2.46. The Islanders only have two games this next week, one against the New Jersey Devils and the other against the Washington Capitals.

John Gibson - Anaheim Ducks: The biggest concern with Gibson is that even when he is posting good individual numbers, he still struggles to pick up wins. He earned a victory on January 4th against the Philadelphia Flyers, but that was his first win in six contests. Regardless, the Ducks have gone on some impressive win streaks this season, so Gibson is not a goalie to be discounted. His record is currently at 12-9-6. During his 27 starts Gibson has accumulated a save percentage of .917 and a GAA of 2.64. Anaheim plays the Pittsburgh Penguins, Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks this week.

Bad Options

Jordan Binnington - St. Louis Blues: Binnington’s numbers have not been great in his recent performances. In his last four starts he has only posted a save percentage above .900 once. Throughout the season there have been huge inconsistencies in his level of play from game to game. With his individual stats being the way they are at the moment, Binnington is an option to currently avoid. His record sits at 10-7-3. Binnington has a save percentage of .908 and a GAA of 3.00. St. Louis has two games this week. The Blues will play against the Seattle Kraken and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Marc-Andre Fleury - Chicago Blackhawks: There was a point where it seemed as though Fleury had finally found his groove in Chicago, but as of late his performances continue to be lackluster. He had a tough showing in his last game on January 6th against the Arizona Coyotes. During that game Fleury allowed five goals on 25 shots and exited with a loss. Fleury’s record this season sits at 9-11-2. He has a save percentage of .907 and a high GAA of 3.01. The Blackhawks play the Columbus Blue Jackets, Montreal Canadiens and Anaheim Ducks this upcoming week.

Joonas Korpisalo - Columbus Blue Jackets: Korpisalo has routinely posted save percentage below .900 in a plethora of games this season and is still not playing a consistent level of hockey. Thus, he is definitely an option to avoid right now. His record currently sits at 3-6-0. He has a save percentage of .885 and a very high GAA of 3.94 this season. The Blue Jackets will play the Chicago Blackhawks, Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers this week.
