2023 Fantasy Outlook
If there was any doubt remaining, Oettinger squashed it emphatically in 2022-23. He went 37-11-11 with a 2.37 GAA and a .919 save percentage over 62 games, establishing himself as a full-time starter. Still just 24 years old, his best years are likely still ahead of him, and the Stars look like a team poised to be competitive for a number of years to come. Aside from a shoddy overtime record, Oettinger is clearly a top-5 netminder and should be off the board within the first three rounds of most fantasy drafts. He's also entering the second season of a three-year contract, so he still has plenty to play for as he positions himself for a rich payday on a long-term deal. Read Past Outlooks

Oettinger turned aside 20 of 21 shots in a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Oettinger was sharp Saturday, holding the Canes to a lone Sebastian Aho goal early in the second period en route to the 2-1 victory. The win snapped a season-long three-game losing skid for Oettinger, as he improved to 21-10-4 with a .903 save percentage and 2.92 GAA on the campaign. The 25-year-old netminder should be back between the pipes Monday when the Stars host the Islanders.

2020
Oettinger wasn't a true No. 1 goaltender for Dallas a season ago, as he appeared in just 48 of their 82 regular-season games. He still managed to post 30 victories, while his 2.53 GAA and .914 save percentages were fair, but not excellent. Oettinger's real breakthrough came in the postseason. In the Stars' first-round loss to the Flames, Oettinger finished with a 1.81 GAA and .954 save percentage, including stopping 64 of 67 shots in Calgary's 3-2 overtime win in Game 7. Seeing how well Oettinger played in the playoffs gives real hope that he's the club's long-term answer in goal, but Oettinger -- a restricted free agent -- remained unsigned as of late August, putting his short-term future with the club in some doubt.
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.
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.
