2018 Fantasy Outlook
An undrafted free-agent signing in 2014, Copley has bided his time in the minors waiting for an opportunity to crack the NHL ranks — that time may be now. Though his 15-17-6 record in 41 starts -- combined with a 2.91 GAA and .896 save percentage from 2017-18 -- doesn't exactly constitute an eye-popping season, the 26-year-old has plenty of experience and boasts a projectable frame (6-foot-4, 225 pounds) with a calm demeanor that's vital to surviving on the big stage. With Philipp Grubauer shipped to Colorado, Copley has the inside track to the backup goalie gig in Washington, though he will need to fend off top prospect Ilya Samsonov (and perhaps another free agent signing) to secure that role. Should he make the big leagues, expect 15-20 starts, but as long as Braden Holtby is around, the Alaskan's fantasy upside could be somewhat limited by the lack of a heavy workload. Read Past Outlooks

Fends off Kings for win

February 18, 2019
Copley stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 3-2 win over the Kings on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Goals by forwards Alex Iafallo and Ilya Kovalchuk made things interesting for Copley in the third period, but he held on to earn his third straight win. Copley improved to 13-5-3 with a 2.97 GAA and a .904 save percentage across 22 appearances. Copley has been a solid backup this season, but expect Braden Holtby to face the Maple Leafs on Thursday.
