2021 Fantasy Outlook
Georgiev began his season with a shutout against the Islanders in the Rangers' second game of the year, but it was all downhill from there. His confidence appeared shaken and he played nowhere near as well as his final numbers (8-7-2, 2.71 GAA, .905 save percentage) would lead you to believe. Georgiev has been involved in trade rumors for multiple years, but nothing has come to fruition up to this point. He has proven to be a solid backup at times, but that's about it. Georgiev, now 25 years old and with one year remaining on his contract, should return as Igor Shesterkin's understudy for the 2021-22 season. That's not a gig that will lead to fantasy relevance.

Blown away by Hurricanes
GNew York Rangers
January 22, 2022
Georgiev made 29 saves on 35 shots in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.
ANALYSIS
The Rangers were never really in this one, and it as 3-0 Carolina early in the second period before Georgiev's offense gave him any help at all. He's lost three of his last four starts, and Georgiev's 2.92 GAA and .902 save percentage will keep him firmly in the backup role behind Igor Shesterkin.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Georgiev was the Rangers' No. 1 netminder for large stretches of the 2019-20 campaign, compiling a 17-14-2 record while posting a 3.04 GAA, .910 save percentage and two shutouts in 34 appearances, but he essentially lost the starting gig to Igor Shesterkin toward the end of the regular season, who finished the year with a 10-2-0 record, a 2.51 GAA and a spectacular .932 save percentage in 12 appearances. Shesterkin will enter the 2020-21 campaign as New York's clear-cut starter, but Georgiev should still see at least 30-35 percent of the work and register a winning record while posting decent GAA and save percentage figures. That won't move the needle much in fantasy, but virtual managers that select Shesterkin early on in this year's draft should make a point of snagging Georgiev in the mid-late-to late rounds, as he'll be one of the best handcuffs available this year.
Georgiev has plenty of upside but a number of obstacles standing in his way. The 23-year-old posted an unimpressive 2.91 GAA in 33 appearances (30 starts) last season, but that was accompanied by a .914 save percentage as the Rangers' abhorrent defense hemorrhaged quality scoring chances in front of him. While he could push for a similar workload this season with Henrik Lundqvist another year older, Georgiev will also have to check the rearview mirror with top goaltending prospect Igor Shesterkin coming stateside after dominating the KHL. Georgiev's numbers should improve since the team in front of him got significantly better this offseason, but he'll need to earn his playing time.
Georgiev got his first taste of NHL action near the end of last season, appearing in 10 games and starting nine. The 22-year-old goaltending prospect flashed some ability with a .918 save percentage, but he posted a 3.15 GAA playing for a Rangers team that blew things up at the trade deadline. New York should be better with a fresh start under a new coaching staff, though Henrik Lundqvist will obviously be the team's top option in net. Still, Georgiev is expected to have the backup job and is thus one Lundqvist injury or slump away from a starting gig at the highest level.
