2021 Fantasy Outlook
A long-term injury to Ben Bishop allowed Oettinger to begin the 2020-21 season with the Stars and he ended up earning more playing time than assumed starter Anton Khudobin. His numbers were excellent (11-8-7, 2.36 GAA, .911 save percentage), and he played the entire season at age 22. Oettinger is a former first-round pick (26th overall, 2017), so the Stars always thought highly of him, but the immediate production was nonetheless surprising. There's no timetable for Bishop's return and Khudobin is 35 years old, so Oettinger would appear to be in the driver's seat to lead what is likely another committee in goal for the Stars heading into the 2021-22 campaign. Oettinger will be a mid-tier fantasy option whenever he gets the call. Read Past Outlooks

Steady in another win

Oettinger allowed two goals on 22 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
ANALYSIS
Oettinger wasn't at his best Thursday, but the Stars were able to protect a lead throughout the third period. The 22-year-old improved to 5-0-0 with a 1.41 GAA and a .951 save percentage in six games overall. No goalie is as good as those numbers suggest, but the Stars are playing some sound hockey during a six-game winning streak. Per Saad Yousuf of The Athletic, head coach Rick Bowness intends to split the workload in goal between Oettinger and Braden Holtby going forward. Each goalie is expected to play twice next week, and both have been solid, so fantasy managers can't really go wrong with either one at this point.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Oettinger posted a 15-16-4 record, a 2.57 GAA and a .917 save percentage with three shutouts for AHL Texas in 2019-20. He also made a pair of relief appearances during the parent club's playoff run, turning aside eight shots in 37 minutes. With Ben Bishop expected to be sidelined until March while recovering from knee surgery, Oettinger will be Anton Khudobin's primary backup to begin 2020-21. A solid contributor in the minors, the 21-year-old Oettinger likely won't see more than a handful of games this year, but it will be valuable experience and a measuring stick to see if he can be the Stars' goalie of the future. Dynasty league managers will want to keep an eye on him as a potential asset for the future.
