2021 Fantasy Outlook
Husso has been up and down since arriving stateside in the fall of 2016, spending time in both the AHL and ECHL. He finally got an extended run as Jordan Binnington's backup this past season with the Blues and the results weren't promising. Husso managed just a 3.21 GAA and an .893 save percentage in 17 games, despite a 9-6-1 record. Husso has one year remaining on his contract at just a $750,000 cap hit, so St. Louis will give him one more opportunity as Binnington's understudy before reassessing the situation next summer.

Settles in for overtime win
GSt. Louis Blues
May 25, 2022
Husso allowed four goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche in Game 5.
ANALYSIS
Husso allowed the first three goals of the game, and then another goal to Nathan MacKinnon late in the third period. The Blues erased both deficits before Tyler Bozak won the game 3:38 into overtime. Husso still hasn't been all that effective with 13 goals allowed in his last three games, but he did enough Wednesday to earn the Blues another game, which is set for Friday in St. Louis.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
Husso spent the entirety of the 2019-20 season with AHL San Antonio, posting a 16-17-8 record while maintaining a 2.56 GAA and .909 save percentage through 42 appearances. The Blues clearly think the 25-year-old Finn is ready for a full-time NHL gig, as they traded Jake Allen to the Canadiens this offseason, paving the way for Husso to take over as Jordan Binnington's backup in 2020-21. Still, Husso has yet to play in an NHL contest, so St. Louis will almost certainly ride Binnington hard this year, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Husso struggle in his limited starts. He won't be worth a roster spot in standard fantasy formats.
Husso is well-regarded as the Blues' top goaltending prospect and the successor to Jake Allen. The 23-year-old excelled with AHL San Antonio last season, posting a .926 save percentage, 2.32 GAA and four shutouts. His impressive play earned him a spot on the AHL All-Rookie Team. Husso's workload was light, however, as he only played in 38 games because San Antonio was a shared affiliate (with Colorado), so the Blues couldn't control who was played. The team is now solely affiliated with St. Louis, which means Husso should get a full season as its starting goalie, making huge strides in his development. Husso is a player to watch in keeper leagues, as another solid minor-league season could vault him to the NHL sooner rather than later.
