2021 Fantasy Outlook
Lankinen had never seen NHL action prior to last season, but that didn't stop the Blackhawks from running him out there for 37 of their 56 games in 2020-21. Lankinen's numbers - 17-4-5 record, 3.01 GAA, .909 save percentage - appear a tad underwhelming on the surface but are actually quite good considering the rate at which Chicago hemorrhaged scoring chances a year ago. Lankinen's extended audition wasn't enough to keep Blackhawks management from going out and acquiring reigning Vezina Trophy winner Marc-Andre Fleury from the Golden Knights following the year. Fleury is going to get the lion's share of the playing time for Chicago even at his advanced age, giving Lankinen little-to-no fantasy value unless an injury strikes. Read Past Outlooks

Makes relief appearance Saturday

October 16, 2021
Lankinen came off the bench to stop 15 of 16 shots in a 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Lankinen entered the game at 11:25 of the first period after the Penguins had already put four goals past starter Marc-Andre Fleury. The only goal allowed by Lankinen came off the stick of Jason Zucker during a delayed penalty late in the second period. Lankinen and Fleury have combined for a sluggish .857 save percentage through the first three games of the season and it's not yet known who will get the start Tuesday at home against the Islanders.
