RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks


There was no outlook written for Alex Pechurskiy.


Pechurskiy remains Penguins' property while he plays for Magnitogorsk Metallurg of the KHL. There are no guarantees he'll ever return to play North American hockey, though he did spend limited time in both the WHL and CHL. Pechurskiy's claim to fame (other than changing the spelling of his last name) might be when he served as Pittsburgh's emergency goalie for a game back in 2009-10. He gave up one goal to the Vancouver Canucks in 36 minutes of action. With the Penguins drafting a netminder in Round 2 of the 2013 draft, it's apparent that the Russian probably doesn't fit into the team's NHL plans.


It's been nearly three seasons since Pechurskiy stopped 35 of 36 shots in a mop-up role for one game with Pittsburgh in Vancouver. The 22-year-old goalie has toiled in the CHL, WHL and KHL the last two years and finished the 2011-12 campaign with the KHL's Metallurg Magnitogorsk. It wouldn't be surprising to see Pechurskiy try his hand at North American hockey again but, for now, it appears he's happy in the KHL.


Pechurskiy spent the 2010-11 season primarily in the CHL, where he put together a disappointing 17-14-2 mark to go along with a 3.04 goals-against average and .894 save percentage. As it stands, he's about fourth or fifth on the organizational depth chart. The 21-year-old netminder will need to put together a decent campaign to solidify his status as a prospect.


Appearing in 27 games for the Tri-City Americans of the WHL in 2009-10, Pechurski ended up with a 13-10-1 record, .912 save percentage and a 2.61 goals-against average. He even landed on the big stage of the NHL when John Curry, the starter at the time, yielded five goals on 14 shots in a January game against the Canucks. He's down a few pegs in the goalie order, but he could join Brent Johnson (and possibly Thiessen) as reasonable fill-ins in the event that starter Marc-Andre Fleury falters, or even gets injured.
