Ilya Bryzgalov

Ducks' Bryzgalov Expected To Start Thursday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov was the first goalie off the ice at the Ducks' morning skate and is expected to start Thursday against the Sharks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The Ducks will kick off a back-to-back set Thursday, presenting Ilya Bryzgalov with the rare opportunity to pick up a start while Frederik Andersen prepares for Friday's game against the Blackhawks. The Ducks have lost just one of their nine January contests, so the team may not even need Bryzgalov -- who owns an awful 3.71 GAA and .854 save percentage over four outings -- to be especially sharp to dispatch the Sharks.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Earns First Win Of Season

News: Ilya Bryzgalov earned his first win of the season Friday, only needing to turn aside 14 shots in a 5-1 win over the visiting Devils.
Analysis: Although he really wasn't tested outside of Martin Havlat's first-period power-play marker, it was nice to see Bryz get back in the win column in his fourth appearance with his new team. He doesn't figure to get much action with workhorse Freddy Andersen seeing the majority of the time in the Ducks' blue paint, but in back-to-back situations such as this one -- where Anaheim plays again Saturday against a tougher opponent in the Kings -- Ilya Bryzgalov makes for an intriguing spot start on an elite team.

Ducks' Bryzgalov To Receive Start Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will garner the start in goal for Friday's game against the Devils, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov will get a rare turn as the Ducks kick off a back-to-back set Friday, with Frederik Andersen starting the second half of the twin bill Saturday against the Kings. The netminder has looked extremely rusty over his three appearances with the Ducks, contributing a 4.93 GAA and .836 save percentage.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Beat By Rangers

News: Ilya Bryzgalov surrendered three goals on 29 shots en route to a 4-1 loss to the visiting Rangers on Wednesday. The fourth was an empty-netter.
Analysis: Making just his second start and third appearance with the Ducks this season, Ilya Bryzgalov failed to record his first win, posting a save percentage below .900 (.897) for the third straight game. Until he shows the Ducks brass he's capable of winning a game for his new squad, expect him to be stapled to the bench while Freddy Andersen continues to pile up the starts.

Ducks' Bryzgalov In Line To Start Wednesday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is in line to start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov left the ice first during morning skate, and is thus in line to make his second start for the Ducks, marking his first action since Dec. 19. The 34-year-old gave up six goals in a disastrous showing that night against the Senators, prompting coach Bruce Boudreau to lean heavily on No. 1 goalie Frederik Andersen ever since. Bryzgalov has a lot of work to do before he can earn more regular appearances as the backup, but a strong showing against the Rangers would be a good place to begin.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Struggles In First Start

News: Ilya Bryzgalov made his first start of the season Friday, giving up six goals on 31 shots in a loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Not a good night for Bryz, who has a disastrous .789 save percentage and 6.40 GAA through two appearances this season. While the Ducks may be leading the Western Conference with 49 points, this Ilya Bryzgalov experiment might not end up working out. It's still very early, however, so we'll need to see more of the 34-year-old in action to be certain of his future. If he can find his groove, Bryz could make for a solid fantasy option as the backup to starter Frederik Andersen.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Gets The Start Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will be between the pipes for Friday's game against the Senators.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov played briefly off the bench in his season debut Tuesday, but Friday's game will be the first he starts this season. He will square off against an Ottawa team that won its last time out but has done so just four times in its last 13 games.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Makes Season Debut

News: Ilya Bryzgalov made his season debut in Tuesday's loss to the Leafs, giving up two goals on seven shots in relief of Frederik Andersen.
Analysis: Toronto was all over the Ducks in this one, as neither Andersen or Ilya Bryzgalov could make enough stops. It was Bryz's first game in an Anaheim sweater since Nov. 7, 2007, and his first start since 2007 with the franchise that drafted him will likely come Thursday or Friday, when the Ducks play a back-to-back set.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Should Start Soon

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is expected to start either Thursday against the Canadiens or Friday against the Senators, Lance Pugmire of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov signed a one-year deal with the Ducks on Tuesday of last week, and is reportedly already in pretty good shape. Fantasy owners should still try to avoid him until it's clear that he'll be given a decent workload in net for Anaheim.

Ducks Sign Bryzgalov To One-Year Deal

News: Ilya Bryzgalov signed a one-year, $2.88 million contract with the Ducks on Tuesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov will join AHL Norfolk for a conditioning assignment that kicks off Wednesday, but he may only need a couple starts in the minors before joining the parent club. The Ducks have granted the last 15 starts in the net to No. 1 goalie Frederik Andersen, so the impending arrival of Bryzgalov could provide some much-needed relief. However, Bryzgalov isn't expected to pose much of a challenge to Andersen's standing as the No. 1 goalie, though his decent-sized contract could lock him in as the top backup even once John Gibson (groin) is back healthy.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Heading To Minors For Work

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is set to practice with AHL Norfolk on Tuesday and start for them Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The deployment to Norfolk is expected to be the final step for the Ducks in their evaluation of Ilya Bryzgalov, who is expected to sign with the team later this week. Unless he implodes in his outing Wednesday with Norfolk or otherwise demonstrates that his conditioning isn't up to par, he'll be poised to join the Ducks soon and take over as their backup netminder.

Ducks' Bryzgalov Aiming To Be Ready In 10 Days

News: Ilya Bryzgalov said he expects to be back at full speed in 10 days, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Since being cut by the Wild in training camp, Ilya Bryzgalov has been left to stay in shape on his own. It shouldn't take him too long to get enough workouts in before the Ducks feel comfortable signing him, which could happen at some point next week. At that point, he would become the top backup to Frederik Andersen, with current No. 2 Igor Bobkov then returning to the minors.

Ducks Bring Bryzgalov In For Tryout

News: Ilya Bryzgalov agreed to join the Ducks on a tryout basis Wednesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Analysis: Injuries to John Gibson (groin) and Jason LaBarbera (upper body) have created an opening for the backup goalie gig in Anaheim, and it appears coach Bruce Boudreau would prefer to have a veteran behind 25-year-old Frederik Andersen. Just like the Martin Brodeur's situation with St. Louis, Ilya Bryzgalov will work out for the Ducks just to make sure his conditioning is up to par, but it appears likely that he'll sign with the team in the coming days. Bryzgalov was useful for a time with the Wild when he was acquired late last season, but proved inconsistent when his number was called during the playoffs.

Wild Release Bryzgalov From PTO

News: The Wild released Ilya Bryzgalov from his professional tryout contract Monday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov was brought in to provide some depth during training camp, but he will move on with the Wild set to open the season with Darcy Kuemper and Niklas Backstrom as their goaltenders.

Bryzgalov Allows Two Goals For Wild

News: Ilya Bryzgalov gave up two goals in 12 shots for Minnesota in Thursday's exhibition loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov is with the Wild on a professional tryout offer. He was brought in with Josh Harding's broken foot and when Darcy Kuemper was unsigned. However, with Bryzgalov giving up four goals in his first two exhibition games, Kuemper under contract and Niklas Backstrom healthy, it seems unlikely Bryzgalov will make the Wild roster unless the team keeps three goalies.

Bryzgalov Agrees To Tryout Offer with Wild

News: Ilya Bryzgalov agreed to a professional tryout offer with the Wild on Wednesday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov will have a good chance at sticking with the Wild so long as restricted free agent Darcy Kuemper remains unsigned, which could possibility carry over until the start of the regular season. Though Bryzgalov has fallen on hard times since signing his much-maligned megadeal with the Flyers a few years ago, he was superb during his 12-game run with the Wild late last season, going 7-1-3 with a 2.12 GAA and three shutouts. If he does end up opening the season with the Wild, it would likely be in a backup capacity to Niklas Backstrom.

Wild Talking To Bryzgalov About Tryout

News: Minnesota has approached Ilya Bryzgalov about coming into training camp on a tryout, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Josh Harding suffering an ankle injury this summer and Darcy Kuemper unsigned and threatening to play overseas, the Wild may bring back Ilya Bryzgalov to serve as Niklas Backstrom's backup.

Wild Unlikely To Re-Sign Bryzgalov

News: The Wild are not expected to try and sign Ilya Bryzgalov when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: It looks like the Wild plan to go into training camp with three goalies and have a competition for the starting job between Niklas Backstrom, Darcy Kuemper and Josh Harding. Ilya Bryzgalov should find a robust market for his services after a strong playoff performance (2.63 GAA in nine games) when the other three Wild goalies were injured.

Bryzgalov, Wild Eliminated In Six

News: Ilya Bryzgalov played well in Tuesday's Game 6 against Chicago, stopping 25 of 27 shots, but that 27th shot was Patrick Kane's series-clinching overtime winner.
Analysis: A tough end to the year for Bryz and the Wild, but the Russian netminder made a respectable showing in the playoffs, considering he's effectively the No. 4 goalie for the Wild. He only allowed six goals in the series' final four games.

Wild's Bryzgalov Lets In Two In Loss

News: Ilya Bryzgalov made 26 saves on 28 shots but took the loss to the Blackhawks in Sunday's Game 5.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov has had three good starts in a row, but Minnesota couldn't pull out the road win. The Wild are now facing elimination at home, but they won the first two games in Minnesota in this series.

Wild's Bryzgalov Gets Second Consecutive Win

News: Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 17-of-19 shots in Friday's win over Chicago to draw the second round playoff series to a 2-2 tie.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov was shaky in the Wild's first two games by allowing seven goals, but he's given up just two goals at home in the last two wins. With no sign of a return from Josh Harding or Darcy Kuemper from injury, Bryzgalov should start in goal the rest of the games in the series.

Bryzgalov Rewards Wild With Game 3 Blanking

News: Ilya Bryzgalov rewarded the Wild for their faith in him Tuesday, shutting out the Blackhawks on 19 shots to draw within 2-1 in the second-round series.
Analysis: Bryz has not been good at all in these playoffs, and a good amount of this performance can be chalked up to strong defense against Chicago's stars -- Patrick Kane had just one shot, Jonathan Toews two -- but you have to give the guy some credit. A postseason shutout is a postseason shutout. Now the question for Bryz's fantasy owners is whether the Wild can play with as much desperation in the remainder of the series as they did in Game 3.

Bryzgalov to Remain Starter For Wild

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will remain the starter in goal for the Wild in Game 3 against Chicago despite giving up three goals or more in each of his last six games, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Darcy Kuemper didn't travel with the Wild to Chicago and is likely out with a concussion (the Wild won't confirm the injury) and the Wild don't want to start John Curry. Josh Harding has been practicing with the Wild, but is an "extreme long shot" to play this series, head coach Mike Yeo. As a result, it looks like the Wild will stick with Ilya Bryzgalov.

Wild Turn To Bryzgalov For Game 2 On Sunday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will be between the pipes for the Wild on Sunday in Game 2 against the Blackhawks and is hoping for a bounce back after Game 1, reports NHL.com. "My confidence is pretty good. On the one side I'm feeling good, on the other one not very good. I'm not happy with the results [Friday], what we got when I played. Obviously I want to change it."
Analysis: He's looking to bounce back after a queasy Game 1 where he allowed four goals on 21 shots, including three on just eight shots over the final two periods. We're not overly confident he can pull off an improvement, but miracles have apparently happened before. He is 1-3-1 with a 4.16 goals-against average and .821 save percentage in four games this postseason.

Third Period Struggles Doom Wild's Bryzgalov

News: Ilya Bryzgalov gave up four goals on just 21 shots in Friday's Game 1 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: With Darcy Kuemper day-to-day with an upper-body injury, coach Mike Yeo was left with no choice but to give the Game 1 start to Ilya Bryzgalov, who was a disappointment despite not facing an overwhelming amount of shots. Kuemper is likely to be unavailable for Game 2 as well, making it imperative that Bryzgalov tightens things up if the Wild hope to even the series before returning to Minnesota.
