2014-15 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Despite a decent rookie season, Pens GM Jim Rutherford brought in veteran Thomas Greiss to challenge Zatkoff for the backup goaltender spot in Pittsburgh. Zatkoff got off to a shaky start, posting a 5.06 GAA in two October games, but then reeled off a 10-game unbeaten streak...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Zatkoff went 26-20 with a 1.93 GAA and .920 save percentage in his first season with Wilkes-Barre in 2012-13. He only played in five postseason contests while fellow Baby Penguins netminder, Brad Thiessen, saw action in 12 contests. Thiessen has since decided to goaltend in Europe for the upcoming season, so the opportunity for full-time duty is there. With Pittsburgh's goaltending situation more unsettled than usual, it's possible Zatkoff could find his way to Consol Energy Center in 2013-14. Zatkoff has already played five years in the AHL, though he's only 26 years of age.

2012-13

Zatkoff has spent parts of the last four years in the AHL playing for Manchester. In 2011-12, he posted 21-17-1 mark with a 2.49 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage. He goes from a Los Angeles organization that features Jonathan Quick to one with Marc-Andre Fleury ahead of him. He'll fight for playing time with Brad Thiessen in Wilkes-Barre (AHL) and will likely need to bide his time before getting any sort of a shot in the NHL. Still, Zatkoff has put up decent numbers in the AHL and, at 25, has time to reach Pittsburgh.

2011-12

Zatkoff was expected to take over the reigns for Manchester in the AFL after Jonathan Bernier's ascension to the Kings but a slow start saw him lose playing time to Martin Jones. Zatkoff saw more action as the season wore on and got the bulk of the playing time from March onward, ending the season with a 20-17-5 record, a .911 save percentage and a 2.68 GAA. He needs to cement himself in the AHL this season if he wants to have much of a future in the NHL.
