Player Notes

  • Frederik Andersen expected to start Saturday
    Look for Frederik Andersen to get the start in goal for Anaheim on Saturday.

    Advice: The Ducks enter Game 4 up 2-1 in the series with Andersen playing stellar hockey between the pipes. He is currently 10-2 in the post-season with a 1.75 GAA and a .935 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

  • Joni Ortio wants to be the man in Calgary
    No one wants to be the backup, let alone the third string goalie and Calgary's Joni Ortio has his sights set on their starting gig in 2015-16.

    Advice: "That’s what I’ll be looking to do next September in camp and trying to steal that number one job," Ortio said during his exit interview on Tuesday. He may have a leg up on his big plans, as backup Karri Ramo is a free agent if he isn't re-signed by July 1st. "It’s going to be the two best guys in training camp that are going to get the spots. That’s what our standards are over here." Ortio has just 15 games of NHL experience since being drafted 171st overall in 2009. He's 8-6-0 with six Quality Starts against just three Really Bad Starts with 35 goals 346 combined shots with Calgary. His numbers with AHL Adirondack last season were more encouraging, going 21-13-1 with a .912 save percentage and a 2.69 GAA in 37 games. He'll be entering his age-24 season in September as well. "No one is guaranteed a spot. I’ve got to work hard." Rotoworld.com

  • Benning is still evaluating Jacob Markstrom
    Canucks GM Jim Benning isn't sure where Jacob Markstrom fits in yet.

    Advice: Markstrom had a 1.88 GAA and .934 save percentage in 32 AHL regular season games and he's been just as effective in the playoffs. However, he's struggled in his NHL stints. Markstrom is set to become a restricted free agent this summer so Benning's evaluation could ultimately determine whether Vancouver re-signs him or attempts to deal his rights. If he decides that Markstrom is ready to be a full-time NHL goaltender, then he might even go as far as to try and trade Eddie Lack to create the necessary space. Rotoworld.com

  • Oscar Dansk heads to Sweden
    Oscar Dansk will play in Sweden next season.

    Advice: Dansk made the decision after struggling in the AHL and ECHL in the 2014-15 campaign. It was his first professional season in North America after moving on from the OHL Erie Otters, so there was a chance he would have found his footing in 2015-16 had he stayed within the Blue Jackets' system. He was taken with the 31st overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Rotoworld.com

  • NJD needs to make decision on Anthony Brodeur
    The Devils have until the end of May to sign Anthony Brodeur or he'll reenter the draft.

    Advice: Brodeur was taken with the 208th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. At the time it was a great story with his father, Martin Brodeur, being the one to announce the selection. Anthony Brodeur has struggled since then though and posted a 3.88 GAA and .882 save percentage in 16 QMJHL games. Devils GM Ray Shero said that he still needed more information regarding the situation and consequently couldn't say whether or not the Devils would sign Brodeur. Rotoworld.com
