Player News
Ondrej Pavelec
Goaltender Rotation Will Continue In Winnipeg
Ondrej Pavelec, G, WPG
12:44 PM
News: Head coach Paul Maurice has stressed that the Jets' goalie rotation between Ondrej Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson will continue after the NHL's three-day holiday break, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Ondrej Pavelec will continue to split starts with Hutchinson for the time being. However, Pavelec has struggled as of late, losing three of his last four games while giving up at least three goals in each of those losses. Meanwhile, Hutchinson has gone 8-2-2 this season while posting a league-leading 1.67 GAA as well as a league-leading .944 save percentage. If Pavelec continues to struggle, and Hutchinson continues to dominate, Pavelec may find himself on Winnipeg's bench more often than he finds himself starting in net moving forward.

Michael Hutchinson
Goaltender Rotation To Continue In Winnipeg
Michael Hutchinson, G, WPG
12:09 PM
News: Head coach Paul Maurice has made it clear that the Jets' goalie rotation between Michael Hutchinson and Ondrej Pavelec will continue after the NHL's three-day holiday break, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Michael Hutchinson's fantasy owners don't have to worry about Pavelec getting the majority of starts in net for the Jets moving forward, as Maurice has clearly indicated that Hutchinson and Pavelec have both performed well enough this season to warrant an even split in playing time. In fact, Maurice may ultimately be forced to give Hutchinson the majority of starts in net in the second half of the season, as he bests Pavelec in both major goaltending statistical categories. Hutchinson boasts a 1.67 GAA and a .944 save percentage, while Pavelec has posted slightly less impressive figures, with a 2.34 GAA and a .913 save percentage. If Pavelec struggles in a few key games down the stretch, Hutchinson may suddenly find himself as the primary goaltender for the Jets. Hutchinson has been phenomenal this season, and fantasy owners lucky enough to own him can plug him into their lineups with confidence each and every time he starts.

Craig Anderson
Sens' Anderson To Receive Saturday Start
Craig Anderson, G, OTT
10:38 AM
News: Craig Anderson will be gifted the start in goal Saturday versus the Red Wings, Brent Wallace of TSN reports.
Analysis: With Robin Lehner sitting out Saturday's morning skate with an illness, turning to Craig Anderson for the start was an easy decision for coach Dave Cameron. It's certainly helped matters that Anderson appears to have gotten back on track over his last three starts, surrendering two or fewer goals against the Devils, Ducks and Capitals, in that order. Detroit will counter Anderson with Jimmy Howard in their net Saturday.

Cory Schneider
Devils' Schneider To Take Net Saturday
Cory Schneider, G, NJ
10:35 AM
News: Cory Schneider will be between the pipes Saturday against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Cory Schneider enters the game riding a five-game losing streak that has mostly been a byproduct of the Devils' utter lack of offense. While the netminder did manage to turn in two performances with a sub-.900 save percentage during that five-game stretch, the Devils have mustered one or fewer goals in four of those contests. That could spell disaster against a Rangers squad that is currently riding a seven-game winning streak behind sound goalie play and a hot offense.

Robert Bortuzzo
Pens' Bortuzzo Activated From IR
Robert Bortuzzo, D, PIT
10:21 AM
News: Robert Bortuzzo (upper body) was officially activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnston called Robert Bortuzzo a game-time decision after he was able to participate in Saturday's morning skate, but his activation suggests it's likely he'll end up suiting up in the match later in the evening against the Capitals. It's certainly possible that Johnston keeps Bortuzzo out an extra game as a precaution, but either way, it looks like he's now being viewed as healthy. If Bortuzzo does end up playing Saturday, he'd likely do so as a member of the club's third pairing with Scott Harrington.

Anton Forsberg
Jackets Recall Forsberg From AHL
Anton Forsberg, G, CLB
10:01 AM
News: Anton Forsberg was recalled from AHL Springfield on an emergency basis Saturday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With Sergei Bobrovsky coming down with a stomach ailment Saturday morning, Anton Forsberg will be needed to serve as the backup to Curtis McElhinney for the Jackets' game later in the evening against the Bruins. Bobrovsky is expected to be ready to play for the team's next match Wednesday, which will more than likely make Forsberg's stay with Columbus a brief one.

Jake Allen
Blues' Allen To Start Saturday
Jake Allen, G, STL
9:58 AM
News: Jake Allen will start in net Saturday against the Stars, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen struggled in his last outing, allowing five goals on 31 shots before getting pulled during the game's second intermission. Allen has been inconsistent recently, winning three straight before giving up a total of eight goals in back to back losses. The 24 year old goaltender will look to bounce back on Saturday against the Stars.

Curtis McElhinney
Jackets' McElhinney To Get Rare Start Saturday
Curtis McElhinney, G, CLB
9:56 AM
News: Curtis McElhinney will man the net Saturday against the Bruins, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Curtis McElhinney was informed of the surprise start prior to the team's morning skate, when it was then revealed that Sergei Bobrovsky would be unavailable due to a stomach bug. The expectation is Bobrovsky will be available for the Jackets' next game Wednesday versus the Wild, making McElhinney a rather poor speculative pickup in weekly leagues that start multiple netminders. McElhinney, who was horrendous in his previous run as the team's starter in the first half of November when Bobrovsky was out with a fractured finger, owns an ugly 1-6-1 record, 3.49 GAA and .895 save percentage on the season. Even in daily formats for Saturday's slate of games, McElhinney looks like one of the weaker starting goalie options on the board.

Josh Jooris
Flames' Jooris A Game-Time Decision
Josh Jooris, C, CGY
9:53 AM
News: Josh Jooris (wrist) is a game-time decision for Saturday night's game, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: Josh Jooris is having a terrific rookie season, although he has only one point in his past eight games. He had five days off to rest his ailing wrist, but it remains to be seen if he's at 100 percent. If you have better options, it's best to hold off on him until he gets fully healthy and breaks out of his drought.

Olli Maatta
Pens' Maatta Out Four More Weeks
Olli Maatta, D, PIT
9:52 AM
News: Olli Maatta is expected to miss another four weeks while he rehabs from an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnston said that Olli Maatta is looking good as far as his fitness is concerned, but the timetable is estimate -- it could be more or less than four weeks. It was originally feared that the defender might need season-ending shoulder surgery, but it appears that has been ruled out at this juncture. The 20-year-old hasn't played since Dec. 6.
