2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Finnish netminder once again saw limited action behind workhorse Sergei Bobrovsky, and the lack of work may have started to affect Korpisalo's development, as he put up the worst stats of his three-year NHL career in 2017-18. Now 24 years old, he has shown occasional flashes of No. 1 upside in the past, but the Blue Jackets were concerned enough about their options behind Bobrovsky that they brought in Jean-Francois Berube in the offseason, and the organization will be looking for further development from Matiss Kivlenieks as well. If Korpisalo struggles again in his sporadic chances, this could end up being his final season with the Blue Jackets. Read Past Outlooks

Unravels against Lightning
GColumbus Blue Jackets
February 19, 2019
Korpisalo surrendered five goals on 20 shots in Monday's 5-1 home loss to the Lightning.
ANALYSIS
This was only the second start for Korpisalo in February, as we suspect the Blue Jackets are trying to showcase No. 1 goalie Sergei Bobrovsky with the trade deadline looming. Korpisalo's 9-5-2 record, 3.07 GAA and .896 save percentage aren't all that useful in fantasy leagues, but he's gone on lengthy winning streaks twice this season and can really help owners in a pinch when he does get the starting nod.

There’s only so much fantasy appeal in a backup tender stuck behind a reigning Vezina Trophy winner, but Sergei Bobrovsky’s understudy has wet his feet to the tune of 45 career NHL games, holding a respectable 23-16-5 record and .915 save percentage over the last two seasons. Korpisalo takes up plenty of real estate in the cage at 6-foot-3, and he’s unafraid to challenge skaters outside of the blue paint. Embarking on his his age 23-season, view the Finn as a solid, up-and-coming insurance option in Columbus.
Korpisalo, an athletic young Finnish goalie, needs a lot of polish, but he's got NHL upside.
This Finnish goaltending prospect was the Jackets' second-round pick in this past June's draft. Korpisalo will have prototypical size for an NHL netminder once he's done growing, but he's a way from seeing NHL ice. He will spend another season in Finland after turning some heads at last winter's World Junior Championships.
