Pavel Francouz

2019 Fantasy Outlook
With battle-tested veteran Semyon Varlamov dispatched to the Islanders in free agency, opportunity knocks for Francouz in the NHL. The lanky netminder -- who spent eight seasons honing his craft between a Czech league and the KHL -- posted a 27-20-1 record, 2.68 GAA and .918 save percentage for AHL Colorado in 2018-19. He stumbled in the Calder Cup playoffs, but not before making an All-Star appearance in the minors. Bound by a one-year, $950,000 contract, Francouz projects to serve as the No. 2 option behind Phillipp Grubauer in Denver this season, though he'll be hard-pressed to register more than 25 starts as an understudy to the emerging Grubauer.

Perfect in round-robin win

Francouz turned in a 27-save shutout Wednesday in a 4-0 round-robin victory over Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Francouz registered his first career NHL postseason victory in his first appearance, though he was well-supported by his teammates. Francouz took a backseat to Philipp Grubauer in Sunday's opener against St. Louis, but after logging a .923 save percentage during the regular season and turning in a steady effort Wednesday, Colorado coach Jared Bednar has a decision to make ahead of Saturday's clash with Vegas.
