2022 Fantasy Outlook
Vejmelka arrived stateside last season after many years of playing in his native Czechia and established himself as Arizona's No. 1 goaltender. Unfortunately that isn't a gig these days that will do wonders for your statistics. All told, Vejmelka played in 52 games, posting a horrific 13-32-3 record along with a 3.68 GAA and .898 save percentage. He had one shutout. The overall state of the Coyotes' franchise at the moment makes it nearly impossible to trust any goaltender on their team, Vejmelka included, from a fantasy perspective. He's nothing more than a late-round dart throw for managers looking for a goalie who should get consistent playing time. Read Past Outlooks
