Al Montoya

Panthers Sign Montoya

News: The Panthers signed Al Montoya (lower body) to a two-year, $2.1 million deal Tuesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Al Montoya finished last season with a 13-8-3 record, 2.30 GAA and .920 save mark. He'll likely serve as Roberto Luongo's backup next year in Florida, assuming he beats out Dan Ellis for the role.

Jets' Montoya Has Lower-Body Issue

News: Al Montoya (lower body) did not dress for Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over the Coyotes, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Al Montoya missed Monday's game as well, so the Jets called up Michael Hutchinson to perform the backup duties behind starter Ondrej Pavelec. There's no word yet on Montoya's status for Thursday's game against the Penguins, but expect Hutchinson to fill in again if Montoya is still unavailable.

Jets' Montoya Misses Monday Morning Skate

News: Al Montoya (unspecified issue) wasn't on the ice for Monday's morning skate, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: It's unclear what kept Al Montoya off the ice Monday, but the team recalled fellow goalie Michael Hutchinson on Sunday in advance of Monday's game against the Ducks.

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Fills In Saturday

News: Al Montoya stopped 12 of 13 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles.
Analysis: Al Montoya came into the game early in the second period with the team down 3-0. He's been a backup his whole career and is not a fantasy factor unless Ondrej Pavelec is hurt.

3/28/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Montoya, Jets Defeat Sharks

News: Al Montoya stopped 27 of 30 in a 4-3 victory over the Sharks on Thursday.
Analysis: While this is a nice game for Al Montoya and the Jets, and the 29-year-old minder has made six consecutive starts for Winnipeg, his March numbers -- a 3-4-1 record with a 2.59 GAA and .908 save mark -- don't move the needle much for fantasy owners.

3/27/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya To Start Sixth Straight

News: Al Montoya will be in the net for his sixth straight start Thursday against the Sharks, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Al Montoya has enjoyed a nice extended run in place of injured No. 1 goalie Ondrej Pavelec, but it could come to an end after Thursday's game. Coach Paul Maurice suggested Pavelec could be ready to go for Saturday's game against the Kings, with Montoya more than likely transitioning over to backup duty for the final few weeks of the season.

3/24/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Lets In Two In Loss

News: Al Montoya made 25 saves on 27 shots in a loss to the Stars on Monday.
Analysis: Now that Al Montoya has played enough to qualify for the goaltending rankings, he sits 10th in both save percentage and GAA. Pretty impressive for a Winnipeg team that hasn't had a lot of success this year.

3/24/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Back In Net Monday

News: Al Montoya will receive the start Monday against the Stars, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: With coach Paul Maurice ruling out Ondrej Pavelec for the fifth straight game, Al Montoya will continue to draw starting duties for the Jets. Montoya is 2-3-1 with a 2.61 GAA and .907 save percentage in March.

3/22/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya: 29 Saves In Loss

News: Al Montoya made 29 saves in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Carolina.
Analysis: He buckled a bit in the second period and the Canes drilled home three goals in just under three minutes. Then again, one of those goals came on the power play. He's 2-3 in his last five starts and 12-7-3 on the season.

3/22/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets Will Start Montoya On Saturday

News: Al Montoya will receive his fourth straight start Saturday vs. the Hurricanes, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: With the Jets in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race, Al Montoya has certainly done his part to keep the Jets afloat while Ondrej Pavelec misses time with a lower-body injury. He's been one of the league's better backups on the whole this season, going 12-6-3 with a 2.26 GAA and .921 save percentage.

3/20/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Outlasts Avs In OT

News: Al Montoya was beaten for four goals on 27 shots Wednesday against the Avalanche, but still came away with the overtime victory.
Analysis: Neither Al Montoya nor opposing goalie Reto Berra looked particularly solid in this one -- the fourth time the Jets and Avs have gone to overtime this season. Teammate Blake Wheeler ultimately bailed out Montoya in the extra frame to give the goalie his second win in three starts since taking over for Ondrej Pavelec, who remains day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

3/19/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Likely To Stick With Montoya

News: Al Montoya appears to be on track to start Wednesday's game against the Avs, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: With Ondrej Pavelec dealing with a lower-body injury, Al Montoya is in line to make his third straight start for the Jets on Wednesday. Assuming that's the case, he'll take aim at an Avs' squad that absorbed a 6-3 loss to Montreal on Tuesday.

3/17/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Lets In Two In Loss

News: Al Montoya made 23 saves on 25 shots in a loss to the Blues on Monday.
Analysis: Al Montoya has let in two goals in each of his last three starts, although he only got one win in those games. However, with Ondrej Pavelec injured, he'll get more chances to start.

3/17/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya To Start Monday

News: Al Montoya will be back between the pipes on Monday, as starter Ondrej Pavelec continues to deal with a lower body injury, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Al Montoya is just 1-4 in his last five contests, posting a .920 save percentage in the month of March. He'll look to get back on track Monday against the Blues, the team he surrendered three goals to back on Feb. 8.

3/16/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Stops 25 In Win

News: Al Montoya made 25 saves on 27 shots in a win over the Stars on Sunday.
Analysis: Al Montoya is having to step up for the Jets with Ondrej Pavelec injured. However, this is actually probably better for Winnipeg, as Montoya has been a far superior goalie this season.

3/15/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets To Roll With Montoya Sunday And Monday

News: Al Montoya will start the Jets' next two games, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: He'll get Dallas at home on Sunday and St. Louis on the road on Monday. Starter Ondrej Pavelec suffered a lower-body injury in Friday's game and had to be relieved. Al Montoya's last win came Feb 2. Uh-oh.

3/15/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Allows Two Goals In Relief Friday

News: Al Montoya came in for the Jets to start the second period and stopped 13 of 15 shots during the Jets' 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Friday.
Analysis: Al Montoya was needed after Ondrej Pavelec suffered a lower-body injury and was unable to return. The loss was his fourth straight but he's allowed just eight goals in that span. It is not yet known how serious the injury to Pavelec is, but should he be out for an extended period of time, Montoya will resume primary duties.

3/11/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets To Roll With Montoya On Monday

News: Al Montoya will be in the crease Monday against the Avalanche, Jim Toth of 680 CJOB reports.
Analysis: Al Montoya came on strong to spell Ondrej Pavelec on Saturday against the Senators, knocking away all 12 shots to keep the bleeding from getting worse. The quality performance was enough to convince coach Paul Maurice to give Montoya the start Monday, but even with another solid outing, he probably won't displace Pavelec as the No. 1 starter.

3/10/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Lets In Three In Loss

News: Al Montoya gave up three goals on 34 shots in an overtime loss to the Avalanche on Monday.
Analysis: Al Montoya only has 10 wins on the season, and he hasn't picked up a victory since Feb. 2. However, his .926 save percentage and 2.17 GAA are actually fairly impressive.

3/8/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Cleans Up In Relief

News: Al Montoya stopped all 12 shots he faced in relief of Ondrej Pavelec in Saturday's loss to the Senators.
Analysis: The Jets were already down by a 5-2 count when Al Montoya entered the game midway through the second period, virtually eliminating his chances of notching a comeback victory. The poor outing by Pavelec probably won't knock him off the No. 1 goalie pedestal in Winnipeg, but it could earn Montoya the starting nod in the team's next game Monday vs. the Avalanche.

2/8/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Folds In Shootout

News: Al Montoya turned away 23 of 26 shot attempts in regulation and overtime before ultimately taking a shootout loss Saturday against the Blues.
Analysis: It wasn't an especially strong showing from Al Montoya, but he did enough to keep the Jets competitive with one of the Western Conference's upper-echelon squads. On the whole, Montoya has been commendable in a backup capacity this season, but Ondrej Pavelec's sizable contract gives him ample security as the Jets' No. 1 netminder.

2/7/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya In Goal Saturday

News: Al Montoya will take the start in goal for Saturday's game against the Blues, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Al Montoya will take the start following back-to-back wins in his last two starts. He has primarily been the backup for the Jets this season. He is 10-4-1 with a 2.14 GAA and a .928 save percentage this season for Winnipeg.

2/2/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Stops 30 In Win

News: Al Montoya made 30 saves on 31 shots in a win against the Canadiens on Sunday.
Analysis: Al Montoya had two bad games and then sat for a few weeks, but now he's had two very good games in a row. He has a .928 save percentage and 2.14 GAA, but he's only played in 17 games, which is a small sample size at this point.

2/2/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets Start Montoya On Sunday

News: Al Montoya will be in goal for the Jets when they face Montreal on Sunday, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Things looked rough for Al Montoya to open January as he gave up 10 goals in his first two starts. But after sitting for most of the month, he turned in a strong 34-save performance in a win over Chicago last Sunday. He'll get another opportunity here to improve on his 9-4-1 record and 2.22 GAA.

1/26/2014

Al Montoya, G, FLA

Al Montoya

Jets' Montoya Stops 34 In Win

News: Al Montoya made 34 saves on 35 shots in a win over the Blackhawks on Sunday.
Analysis: This is Al Montoya's first start since a bad outing January 5. Maybe this performance will get him back in Winnipeg's good graces.
