That leaves me with just Holtby for the week until Anderson comes off IR. In my league every stat counts so every category is important.
Nikolai Khabibulin is expected to start tonight in Chicago and he may be a good pick up. In his career vs Chicago, Khabibulin has a 15-9-1 record, 2.47 GAA and a .923 save percentage.
He will be facing a red hot Chicago team who has yet to lose in regulation but Khabibulin will be good for at least minutes played and save percentage. He always seems to rise to the occasion when he faces teams like the Hawks. Sure he may not get the win, but you will get valuable and decent stats in the minutes played, goals against average and save percentage categories.
Khabibulin’s record so far this season is 2-2 with a .942 SV% and just 1.89 GAA. He’s faced the Kings, Avs, Coyotes and Red Wings.
If he’s a free agent you may want to consider adding him if you are like me and need goalie help due to injury or even if you didn’t draft a decent goalie. It’s worth a shot.
