2023 Fantasy Outlook
Playing a career-high 61 games didn't help Binnington's numbers in 2022-23, as he went 27-27-6 with a 3.31 GAA and an .894 save percentage in a career-worst season. The 30-year-old goalie's poor play was further exacerbated by on-ice meltdowns, one of which led to a two-game suspension. Despite that, he remains the Blues' No. 1 goalie, though that's a role that could ultimately be challenged by Joel Hofer, who is projected to be his backup this season. The Blues have a crop of young goalies just waiting for a chance, so Binnington might need a bounce-back season to hold on to his No. 1 role, though he's still got four years left on a deal with a $6 million cap hit that definitely gives him some job security.

Strong in shootout loss
GSt. Louis Blues
April 17, 2024
Binnington stopped 36 of 37 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Stars.
ANALYSIS
Binnington put in a good effort for his last game of the season, but he still ended up with his third defeat in his last four outings. The 30-year-old ends 2023-24 at 28-21-5 with three shutouts, a 2.84 GAA and a .913 save percentage over 57 appearances. Those are his best numbers in the last three years, but they're not enough for him to be considered among the NHL's top-tier goalies.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Poised to start Friday
GSt. Louis Blues
April 12, 2024
Binnington was in the starter's crease ahead of Friday's home matchup with Carolina, Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
ANALYSIS
Binnington has suffered just one regulation loss in his last six outings, posting a 4-1-1 record to go with a 3.28 GAA and .900 save percentage. If the 30-year-old netminder can get two more victories this season, he will reach the 30-win threshold for the first time since 2019-20.

Finding himself behind Ville Husso in the pecking order for much of the season, Binnington played in just 37 games for the Blues in 2021-22, posting an 18-14-4 record, a 3.13 GAA and a .901 save percentage. He was better in the playoffs (4-1-0 record, 1.75 GAA in five games) before a knee injury ended his year. With Husso a pending unrestricted free agent, St. Louis dealt his rights to Detroit and signed veteran Thomas Greiss to serve as the team's backup. That leaves Binnington in a stellar position from a fantasy perspective. He should get the lion's share of the starts for the Blues and could easily finish 2022-23 as a low-end No. 1 fantasy goaltender.
Two years after winning the Stanley Cup, Binnington has struggled to maintain the high level of play that helped backstop the Blues to their first championship in 2019. The 28-year-old posted a rather unflattering 2.65 GAA and .910 save percentage behind an 18-14-8 record in 42 starts last season. Blues management appears unconcerned about Binnington's numbers, as they inked their workhorse netminder to a six-year, $36 million extension in March of 2021. With so many key players from the championship roster now gone, it's uncertain whether Binnington will be able to renkindle the magic of his breakout season, but he should be a solid fantasy option once again in 2021-22 based on volume alone.
Binnington was bound to take a step back after a historic, fairy-tale season as a rookie in 2018-19. He finished with 30 wins, third most in the league, but saw both his save percentage and GAA move closer to the league average last year. The real Binnington is probably somewhere in between, and even with free agency looming, the Blues were confident enough to trade Jake Allen to the Canadiens in September. That means Binnington is going to see a lot of playing time in 2020-21, so he'll have a great opportunity to finish in the top five in wins for a second consecutive campaign. Binnington has a short track record, but it's been impressive so far. He should be considered a top-10 option at his position heading into this year's drafts.
Binnington was on waivers at the beginning of last season and the Blues refused to give him his first NHL start until they hit rock bottom. But the rest is history. The 26-year-old's name will forever be etched into Lord Stanley, and the Blues rewarded him with a two-year, $8.8 million contract. This is essentially a prove-it deal, because while his accomplishments were priceless, they were also unprecedented, as no rookie goalie has ever won 16 games in the postseason before. Binnington could be due for some regression from the .927 save percentage and 1.89 GAA he posted in the regular season, especially considering it already slipped to a .914 and 2.46, respectively, in the playoffs. Nevertheless, he clearly has the raw talent to play at the top level, so it's just a matter of whether this can translate over 60 starts in a season. Fantasy owners should be wary of reaching too early here.
Binnington spent the 2017-18 season on loan to AHL Providence, where he posted a dominant .926 save percentage and 17-9-0 record. The 25-year-old will look to return to the Blues' affiliate, AHL San Antonio, this season, but he'll face stiff competition from Evan Fitzpatrick, who is five years younger and coming off a stellar playoff run in Canadian juniors. If Binnington wins the backup job behind Ville Husso in San Antonio, he'll have a chance to prove he deserves a look to be Jake Allen's successor.
Binnington has spent the past four seasons playing for AHL Chicago, and while the results haven't been staggering, he’s done well enough to prove he could be Jake Allen’s backup once Carter Hutton’s contract expires next summer. Last season, he recorded 16-7-3 record with a .911 save percentage and a 2.71 GAA. Binnington is unlikely to play with the Blues this year aside from a game here and there if injuries strike, but keep his name in mind for future seasons.
Binnington, 21, plied his trade with Kalamazoo of the ECHL last season, producing a 2.35 GAA and .922 save percentage in 40 games. The former third-round pick is expected to take his talents to AHL Chicago this season, where he’ll likely serve as the squad’s starter following Jake Allen’s appointment to the top backup spot on the NHL squad. In addition to Allen, the Blues have another promising young netminder in 21-year-old Niklas Lundstrom, but Binnington seems to be further along in his development and likely checks in at No. 3 on Blues’ organizational goalie depth chart.
The 6-2 Binnington turns 18 this year and is coming off a year where played a ton of minutes for the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League. On the surface, a 3.05 GAA and .899 save percentage doesn't look too good, but it won him 27 games.
