Shipped to Arizona along with top-line center Derek Stepan in June, Raanta will get his first chance to serve as a No. 1 netminder after acting as the understudy to Corey Crawford in Chicago and then Henrik Lundqvist in New York for his first four NHL seasons. Over the past three, Raanta hasn't posted a save mark lower than .919, and Cam Talbot’s success upon moving to Edmonton after backing up Lundqvist gives us a framework to analyze what the Finn might do now that he’s escaped the shadows of two star goalies. He'll have the benefit of a blue line that's added defensive specialist Niklas Hjalmarsson, with whom Raanta is familiar from their time together with the Blackhawks, as well as Stepan’s own-zone proficiency -- a much-needed attribute in the desert, as the Coyotes have been known as a soft target for opposing offenses in recent seasons. He should easily fend off any challenge for playing time that may be posed by mediocre backup Louis Domingue.

  2. Antti Raanta 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    As he enters his age-27 season, Raanta has never been an NHL starter, and he appears set to continue that way. After a solid first season as Henrik Lundqvist’s backup, Raanta will be back for another two years in the same role after re-signing in early May. Unless the King suffers an injury, the Finn will hold fairly minimal fantasy value outside of deep formats in which his strong ratios can help despite his limited playing time.
  3. Antti Raanta 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Raanta turned in sparkling work as the Blackhawks' second-string goalie last year, supplying a spectacular .936 save percentage and 1.89 GAA in 14 games (12 starts), but nonetheless found himself displaced from that role by Scott Darling by season's end. That resulted in a trade to the Rangers, where the Finn will slot in as the backup behind star netminder Henrik Lundqvist. Lundqvist spent some rare time on IR last year, but he's usually an iron man out there, so don't expect Raanta to see more than about 20 starts this season. When he does play, though, he may be one of the most appealing backups around, just as Cam Talbot was last season.
  4. Antti Raanta 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Raanta stepped into the crease last season when both Nikolai Khabibulin went down with a season-ending injury and Corey Crawford was out for a period of time and did an admirable job filling the net. Sure, he needs to improve that .897 save percentage, but he did go 13-5-4. He is a reliable backup and should continue to grow his game. We think he'll see about the same number of games, 25, as last season,and he should provide those of you in daily leagues with a decent streaming option.
