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

Gets no help against Isles
GWashington Capitals
April 6, 2019
Copley made 21 saves in a 3-0 loss to the Islanders on Saturday. He allowed two goals.
ANALYSIS
Copley has a strong record -- he's 16-7-3 in 24 starts. But his 2.94 GAA and .904 save percentage aren't encouraging. Copley's record is influenced by team play, but the Caps couldn't muster much Saturday.
