Devan Dubnyk: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Dubnyk went 20-20-3 last season with Edmonton with a 2.67 GAA and .914 save percentage, very respectable numbers for a team that had major holes on defense. The Oilers are getting better, especially on offense, but how much better their defense will be remains to be seen. As the defense goes, so goes Dubnyk -- for good and bad. There's also the looming shadow of Nikolai Khabibulin, who is nowhere near the goaltender he used to be, but will still see plenty of time between the pipes as the Oilers look to justify his contract. In a perfect world, Dubnyk would see 75 to 80 percent of the starts in goal, but that number could be closer to 60 percent with the Bulin Wall still in town.
Don't let Dubnyk's subpar numbers from last season (12-13, 2.71 GAA, 91.6 SV%) fool you. He outplayed Nikolai Khabibulin and may have earned the right to be the starter this season. The Oilers' decision on whether to stick with the veteran Khabibulin or go with Dubnyk promises to be one of the bigger questions in training camp. Edmonton is a young, up-and-coming team, and may prefer to have a young goalie grow with that nucleus. However, the defense is still a work in progress and there will be games where Dubnyk will see more rubber than a tire factory, but he is a tender worth watching in 2011-12.
Dubnyk entered last season being no better than third on the Oilers depth chart and although his final numbers were nothing to crow about, 4-10-2, 3.57 GAA, 88.9 SV%, he seems to be the backup to starter Nikolai Khabibulin entering training camp. Ordinarily this may not mean all that much, but with Khabibulin involved in a DWI trial that could spill into training camp or even into the regular season, Dubnyk could play more than first thought.
Dubnyk had a 27-58-2 record with a 3.02 goals against average and a .905 save percentage with AHL Springield in the past two years. He will once again be the main man in net at Springfield.
Could be the future goalie for the Oilers, but still needs some seasoning.
The future of Edmonton goaltending, Dubnyk's huge frame offers up little daylight for shooters. He still has some maturation to undergo, but that's nothing a year or two in the AHL won't cure.
Dubnyk had a decent training camp heading into the 2006-07 season. This will be his first in the AHL (played in the WHL the previous five seasons). He is a possible #1 netminder for Edmonton down the road.
