Sergei Bobrovsky: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bobrovsky's numbers slid in his second NHL season, and the Flyers elected to ship him to Columbus for a handful of draft picks. The young Russian netminder will head into training camp as the presumptive number one for the Blue Jackets ahead of Steve Mason, and, while heading to the worst team in the league would normally not be an advised career move, the Jackets do have a young, skilled crop of blueliners capable of gelling into one of the tighter defensive units in the league after gaining more experience. Of course even if they do, Bobrovsky could have a lot of 1-0 and 2-1 losses on the horizon, so don't expect much in the way of fantasy value in the short term. Goalie Bob can not be counted on for consistent wins, but if he's a starting goalie, he's worth a roster spot in deeper leagues.
Bobrovsky posted a .915 save percentage and 28 wins last year as the Flyers' starter, but now he's slated to backup Ilya Bryzgalov, whom the Flyers inked to a hefty contract this summer. There's also been rumors Philly is looking to shop Bobrovsky. Those rumors have been of the unsubstantiated type, and the possibility of Bobrovsky moving to a new team and sliding into a starter's role is far from a likelihood at this point. Nonetheless, the 22-year-old has shown enough for a team in need of netminding to make a play for him, especially considering his contract is palatable. But as long as he's with the Flyers, his fantasy value is limited.
