Top 25 Fantasy Goalie Rankings 2019-2020

It’s only been a few weeks since the All-Star break, yet there is plenty of movement upon the Fantasy Hockey Goalie rankings.

Braden Holtby suffers the largest fall, finding himself out of the Fantasy Hockey Goalie rankings. His 21-12-4 record may look nice, but when you dive a little deeper, its evident his record is a product of being on a great Capitals team. Holtby has struggled to stop the puck mightily this season. His 3.11 goals against average and .897 save percentage are just not something fantasy owners are able to live with. Super rookie, Ilya Samsonov has taken the majority of starts in Washingtons net, and with performances like he had the other night in Philadelphia, it doesn’t appear Holtby will be winning back that time. Holtby gave up seven goals on 25 shots against the Flyers, giving the Capitals no chance at two points in the contest.


Some new faces emerge on our Fantasy Hockey Goalie rankings. Winning four out of his last five contests, Igor Shesterkin emerges onto the scene. Shesterkin boasts a 6-1 record, and equally impressive, his goals against average sits at a 2.18, while his save percentage is a .941. If that’s not impressive enough, Shesterkin has turned in three 40 plus save performances in his past six starts. The New York Rangers may be a wild card in terms of performance, but Shesterkin is finding a way to the win column.

Mackenzie Blackwood has played his way onto our Fantasy Hockey Goalie rankings. As of late, Blackwood has been performing how the Devils had hoped he would perform all season. Blackwood has earned five wins in his past six games, including back to back shutouts against the Flyers and the Kings. In the 5-0-1 span for Blackwood, five out of six games have come with 25 plus save performances, most notably against the Blu Jackets where he stopped 52 out of 55 shots. With a modest 2.79 goals against average and .913 save percentage, Blackwood could continue to climb on the list, and earn the trust of the New Jersey Devils to be their certified number one goaltender.

The Los Angeles Kings and Toronto Maple Leafs came to an agreement that saw Jack Campbell land with the Leafs. In three starts with the Leafs, Campbell is 2-0-1, with a .918 save percentage and 2.52 goals against average. Campbell was brought in to solidify the net in Toronto as Anderson has been putting the Leafs on his back. Andersen saw a short stint on the injured reserved, and with Campbell now in Toronto, Andersen will have more time to rest. A time share is expected with Andersen and Campbell in order to keep both netminders at the top of their games.

    There must be an error in the list posted for the March 11 top 25 Goalies. It mentions Holtby falling out of the ranking and then has him 7th. Talks about Shesterkin being new to the ranking and he doesn’t appear. It has Holtby Gibson, Murray, Jones, Rinne all ranked higher than Hellebyuck (!), Grubauer, Markstrom, Lehner and Kuemper. Quick (!) makes the list nut no Saros, Shesterkin, Merlinkins or Korpisalo. Was the 2018-19 list posted by accident?!
