2017 Record: 48-28-6
#31 Ondrej Pavelec
Sep 15: Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said he believes the Rangers have gotten Pavelec "at the right time," The Sporting News reports. "In certain players' careers, you catch them at the right time, and our organization got him at the right time," Vigneault said. "He's had a couple off years, and you only get so many kicks at the can in this game. We have a highly motivated guy who's going to want to listen to the goalie coach and wants to help the team win so that he can prove he belongs in the NHL." Of course, it's easy to be optimistic before any games have been played; once the puck drops, the onus will be on Pavelec to prove that he can come back after nearly falling out of the league entirely last year, as he played in just eight games and posted an .888 save mark. The Czech netminder has been better than that in the past, though, and playing backup minutes for a Rangers team that emphasizes defensive responsibility should be a positive change of pace for him.

Jul 1: Pavelec signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Rangers on Saturday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. The Rangers were linked to the veteran netminder prior to the opening of free agency and the two sides mad ethe deal official Saturday. After falling out of favor in Winnipeg and playing just eight contests for the club during 2016-17, he will return to a goalie rotation in New York, albeit behind "The King" Henrik Lundqvist. It's highly unlikely he will earn consistent starts for the Rangers unless Lundqvist were to miss time due to injury.

Jun 30: Pavelec has been linked to the Rangers with free agency looming, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. The 29-year-old backstop will officially become an unrestricted free agent Saturday. Despite falling out of favor in Winnipeg and playing in only eight NHL contests, Pavelec could be an ideal fit for a Rangers team that lost backup netminder Antti Raanta to the Coyotes in last week's trade for Anthony DeAngelo and the seventh overall pick in the 2017 draft -- New York selected Swedish pivot Lias Andersson. Pavelec banked $19.5 million annually over the five years of his most recent contract, but we figure he wouldn't come close to that figure playing second fiddle to Henrik Lundqvist in the Big Apple. After all, he posted a 3.55 GAA along with a similarly weak .888 save percentage in that eight-game curtain call with the Jets.

Apr 12: According to general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff, Pavelec (knee) will hit the free agent market after his contract official expires, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Considering the Jets demoted Pavelec to the minors immediately following training camp, where he spent the bulk of the season, to avoid his $3.9 million cap hit, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the two sides are parting way. The netminder was recalled in mid-January when Winnipeg were on the verge of playoff contention and posted a 4-4-0 record with a 3.55 GAA before a concussion -- then knee injury -- sidelined him for the remainder of the year. Despite playing in a mere eight NHL contests this season, there will certainly be teams in the market for at least a backup, although whether the 29-year-old can get another shot at a starting role remains to be seen.

Mar 6: Pavelec is expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks after having his knee scoped Monday. To say 2016-17 has been a difficult campaign for Pavelec would be an understatement at best. The netminder was relegated to the minors following training camp, ultimately spending the first three months of the year in the AHL. Once recalled, the 29-year-old was performing well and seemed to have secured the No. 1 role, only to suffer a concussion and now a knee injury. Pavelec has missed the Jets' last 10 contests due to these ailment and will miss nearly the rest of March, if not beyond. Although it hasn't happened yet, fantasy owners should expect the Czech to be placed on injured reserve in order to free up a spot on the 23-man roster.

Mar 6: Pavelec (undisclosed) is undergoing an operation Monday that will end his season, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The goaltender had been dealing with a lower-body injury before being cleared for action on Mar. 2, though it's unclear whether this is the same injury that will keep him out for the remainder of 2016-17. After starting the season in the minors, Pavelec went 4-4-0 with a 3.55 GAA and .888 save percentage in eight starts with the Jets. A Jet/Thrasher for the last 10 years, Pavelec will be an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the season, and it's more likely than not that he'll need to find a new home for 2017-18.

Mar 2: Pavelec (lower body) practiced fully Thursday, the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec, who has missed the Jets' last eight games, is slated to be in uniform against St. Louis on Friday, but it's unclear if he will be the team's start in net. If Pavelec does not start Friday's tilt, he'd then be a candidate to tend the twine for Winnipeg on Saturday against Colorado.

Feb 15: Pavelec (concussion) will travel with the team on their four-game road trip, but remains questionable to suit up, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Considering the rigors of travel, it is certainly a good sign that Pavelec has been cleared to join the team on the road. With Connor Hellebuyck struggling to keep pucks out of the back of the net, coach Paul Maurice likely wants to keep Pavelec on hand to suit up the minute he is given the green light. Additionally, if the organization is considering trading the netminder prior to the deadline -- he will be a free agent after the season -- it will want to get the 23-year-old onto the ice to hopefully garner a bigger price tag.

Feb 14: Pavelec (concussion) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. After getting waived to start the season, Pavelec was afforded a chance to resurrect his career with Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson faltering, but the results weren't there as the Czech tender, who'll be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, went 4-4-0 with an egregious 3.55 GAA and .888 save mark. Of course, not helping these Winnipeg netminders is that the Jets rank 27th on the penalty kill. There shouldn't be any urgency for fantasy owners to throw Pavelec back into lineups upon his eventual return.

Feb 13: Pavelec (concussion) skated prior to Monday's practice. Pavelec seems to be trending toward a return to action, but unless he can practice fully, including taking shots, the netminder will remain out of the lineup. Until the 29-year-old is cleared, Connor Hellebuyck figures to see the bulk of the time in between the pipes for the Jets.

Feb 9: Pavelec (concussion) will be sidelined for at least a week according to coach Paul Maurice, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 reports. Based on the coach's timeline, Pavelec will miss the Jets' next three contests with Feb. 16 against the Penguins as a potential return date. Considering how fluid concussion recovery can be, however, there is likely no definitive date for the netminder to return to action. With Pavelec out, Connor Hellebuyck figures to see the bulk of the ice time in the crease.

Feb 7: Pavelec left Tuesday's game against the Wild due to a lower-body injury and he will not return, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports. Pavelec coughed up three goals on 14 shots before departing after 26:15, so it was another subpar outing. He has allowed three or more goals in each of his seven appearances this season. Connor Hellebuyck replaced him. When healthy, Pavelec is nothing more than a low-end No. 2 netminder in deeper pools until he starts to save more shots.

Feb 7: Pavelec will defend the cage against the Wild on Tuesday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 reports. Pavelec has been less than stellar since being called up in mid-January as he is 4-3-0 and has yet to allow fewer than three goals in a game. With a leaky defense in front of him, the goaltender could be in for a long night against the league's third best offense, as Minnesota are averaging 3.33 goals per night.

Feb 4: Pavelec allowed four goals on 27 shots Saturday in a 5-2 loss to Colorado. The Avs are the league's weakest by a margin, so Pavelec could have used the game as a showcase of his skills. He didn't. Pavelec has allowed at least three goals in every one of his seven start this season and his save percentage has now dropped below .900. He once showed potential; he now shows mediocre. Tread carefully. Pavelec can really torch your counting categories.

Feb 3: Pavelec will tend twine in Saturday's game in Colorado, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. In only six games this year, the goaltender has a .901 save percentage and 3.21 GAA. With such a small sample, it's tough to say that this will be his level of production throughout the rest of the year, but until he shows signs of heating up, expect that level of production to continue.

Feb 3: Pavelec gave up three goals on 42 shots over the course of a 4-3 victory over Dallas on Thursday. He's now 4-2-0 since coming back from the land of the forgotten (aka the AHL) despite having given up three or more goals in each of those six outings. Other than those wins, the stat line isn't pretty (3.21 GAA, .901 save mark), so don't be overly surprised if Pavelec's stay top the Jets' goalie pecking order is a relatively short one.

Feb 1: Pavelec will be the starting goalie for Thursday night's matchup in Dallas, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Coach Paul Maurice has been gaining more confidence in his relatively new starter, deploying Pavelec for what will be six of the last seven contests. The 29-year-old keeper has yet to record fewer than three goals allowed in a game yet, and he'll open the new month against a high-octane Dallas offense that averaged 3.38 goals per game in January.

Jan 31: Pavelec allowed three goals on 27 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 win against the Blues. Pavelec has allowed three or more goals in each of his five outings this season, including two starts against St. Louis. But he improved to 2-0 against the Blues, and 3-2 overall, thanks to tremendous offensive support. He remains more of a low-end No. 2 netminder in deeper fantasy pools until he starts to yield fewer goals.

Jan 30: Pavelec will start in the crease Tuesday against the Blues, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. It's been a tough run for Winnipeg netminders this season, and Pavelec is no exception to that. In his four starts prior to the break, the veteran allowed no fewer than three goals, earning a 2-2 record in his first four starts of the season. He will look to turn things around Tuesday after two straight losses, facing a Blues club that's averaged 2.83 goals per game in January.

Jan 24: Pavelec turned aside 22 of the 26 shots he faced in Tuesday's 4-3 loss against the Sharks. Pavelec is back from the dead, starting four straight games after being placed on waivers before the season. He has won two of his four starts since being recalled from the minors, but he has yielded at least three goals in each of the outings. He hasn't been much better than Connor Hellebuyck or Michael Hutchinson, but if you're desperate for goaltending depth he is worth a roster spot since he is playing regularly. Unfortunately for Pavelec, or any Winnipeg netminder, the Jets are banged up on defense and lost another player, Toby Enstrom, to an upper-body injury in this loss. A strong defensive corps helps goaltenders, and Winnipeg just doesn't have that right now.

Jan 24: Pavelec will start between the pipes in Tuesday's home game against the Sharks. Pavelec hasn't been great since being promoted to the big club in mid-January, posting a 3.05 GAA and .907 save percentage over three appearances, but has played well enough to pick up two wins over that span. The 29-year-old goaltender will look to pick up his third win of the campaign in a matchup with a Sharks team that is 13-10-1 on the road this season.

Jan 24: Pavelec allowed three goals on 27 shots to lose his first game of the season Monday against Anaheim. Pavelec entered Monday's game with two straight wins since being recalled from the AHL, but he hasn't been sharp in the process. The veteran sports an underwhelming 3.05 GAA and .907 save percentage through his three outings, and it might not be long before Connor Hellebuyck receives another look between the pipes for Winnipeg. Additionally, with a tough upcoming schedule (hosting San Jose and then visiting Chicago, St. Louis and Dallas), it's tough sledding ahead for Winnipeg.

Jan 23: Pavelec will get the starting nod for Monday's meeting with Anaheim, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has come away with victories in both of his appearances since being called up from the minors. An unrestricted free agent after the season, the netminder will be motivated not only to show the Jets they made a mistake sending him down prior to the start of the year, but also to potentially earn himself a starting job elsewhere in the offseason. Until the 29-year-old stumbles, look for coach Paul Maurice to continue riding Pavelec.

Jan 21: Pavelec delivered his second-straight strong performance on Saturday, blocking 34 shots in a 5-3 win over the Blues. Just when it looked like Pavelec was clearly on the outside looking in for the Jets, he has thrust himself back into the blue paint debate in Manitoba. He made several sharp saves and earned the game's second star as a result. Check your wire to see if your league is sleeping on Pavelec and if so, pick him up.

Jan 21: Pavelec will guard the cage in Saturday's home game against the Blues, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec played pretty well in his first start of the season Wednesday against Arizona, stopping 30 of 33 shots en route to a 6-3 victory. The 29-year-old backstop will look to keep rolling in a decent home matchup with a Blues team that is 7-11-1 on the road this season.

Jan 18: Pavelec saved 30 of 33 shots during Wednesday's win over Arizona. It was the first outing of the season for Pavelec, and the 29-year-old netminder could receive a fleeting run of starts with Winnipeg searching for answers between the pipes. However, after posting a .904 save percentage in 2015-16 and a .904 mark over 169 games from 2011-12 through 2013-14, Pavelec likely isn't the answer for many fantasy clubs. Still, he shined just two years ago with a .920 save percentage and 2.28 GAA, so you'll want to keep tabs on the goaltending situation in Winnipeg. While expectations should be kept in check, it also isn't out of the question to take a speculative flier on Pavelec in deep seasonal leagues if you need help at the position.

Oct 10: Pavelec was placed on waivers for the purpose of reassignment Monday. Pavelec, if unclaimed, will report to AHL Manitoba which seems likely considering his $3.9 million cap hit. The 29-year-old's reassignment is due to the emergence of fellow netminder Connor Hellebuyck who should have the inside track on the starting job. Barring injuries to the other goalies, Pavelec may have played his last game in a Jets jersey as he is scheduled to be a free agent following the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.

Apr 23: Pavelec was limited to 33 games in 2015-16, posting a 13-13-4 record to go along with a 2.78 GAA and a .904 save percentage. While the 28-year-old netminder has never played on a great team, he has only eclipsed the .910 save percentage mark twice (2010-11 and 2014-15). In a perfect world, the Jets would move Pavelec this offseason to then carry the cheaper Michael Hutchinson and the promising Connor Hellebuyck as their goaltending duo. However, with Pavelec carrying a $3.9 million cap hit for one more season, it will be difficult to find a taker on the market. Regardless if he's moved or not, Pavelec's status as Winnipeg's No. 1 goaltender is in flux entering the 2016-17 season.

Apr 10: Pavelec stopped 26 of 29 shots in Saturday's shootout win over the Kings. Los Angeles had a chance to secure the division title, but Pavelec stood tall for his third consecutive win. The 28-year-old finishes the season with a 13-13-4 record and a .904 save percentage. Pavelec had a tough year overall, but he ended on a high note and may end up being part of the reason the Kings don't finish first in the Pacific Division.

Apr 9: Pavelec led his team out on the ice for pregame warmups Saturday, indicating that he'll start the regular-season finale against the Kings, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Michael Hutchinson was originally expected to start, but according to a separate report, he has the flu and will be relegated to backup duty. Neither goalie is a recommended play anyway against a tough Kings team bound to come out firing in their quest for their first division title in the past 25 years.

Apr 8: Pavelec nabbed a win over the Sharks on Thursday night, but it wasn't pretty as he surrendered four goals on 25 shots. Interestingly enough, goalie counterpart Martin Jones had the same number of saves as Pavelec, but he surrendered one more goal than the Jets tender. While It's great to know that Pavelec has been healthy since a knee injury wiped out 33 games from his campaign, he hasn't inspired much confidence based on a 2.78 GAA and .904 save percentage on the season.

Apr 6: Pavelec will start Thursday's road tilt in San Jose, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The 28-year-old netminder is coming off of an impressive performance in his last start, a 5-1 victory over Minnesota on Sunday. While Pavelec has struggled on the whole this year (2.74 GAA, .906 save percentage), he could carry the momentum from his last start into San Jose on Thursday night. The Sharks are a team that have clinched a playoff spot and sit on 96 points as they enter Thursday's game, but own a home record of just 17-19-3.

Apr 3: Pavelec denied 28 of 29 shots in Sunday's win over the Wild. Pavelec was working on a shutout until midway through the final frame, but he and the Jets still easily cruised to a 5-1 win. The 28-year-old has mostly been inconsistent when called upon though, so it may be difficult to place too much trust in him if he's given the starting nod in any of the club's final three games, all of which come on the road against playoff teams.

Apr 3: Pavelec will be in the crease for Sunday's game against Minnesota, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The Jets aren't playing for much as the season winds down, save for a better slot in the summer's draft. Pavelec has been wildly inconsistent this season, but he's been poor more often than not. In his last eight starts, the Czech netminder has allowed four goals or more in four starts, including allowing five goals in his last start, a loss to Chicago. With Minnesota looking to clinch a playoff berth Sunday, expect them to throw everything but the kitchen sink on net, meaning it may be a long night for Pavelec and the Jets.

Apr 1: Pavelec gave up five goals on 27 shots in an overtime loss against the Blackhawks on Friday. In his career, Pavelec has a .908 save percentage, which is pretty bad. His save percentage this season isn't even that good, and this game did not help matters.

Apr 1: Pavelec will start against the Blackhawks on Friday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. This is a home match for the 28-year-old netminder in his ninth campaign. Considering that the Blackhawks have fared better than the Jets in seven primary offensive statistics this season, Pavelec generally makes for a poor fantasy play Friday.

Mar 28: Pavelec stopped 29 of 32 shots in Monday's loss to the Flyers. Pavelec was just 14 seconds away from heading to a shootout, but he was beat by Claude Giroux as time wound down in overtime. It wasn't a terrible outing by the 28-year-old, but it only further served to reinforce the notion that he's too inconsistent to be relied upon by fantasy owners on a regular basis.

Mar 28: Pavelec is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The good Pavelec showed up over his last two starts for the Jets, allowing one goal combined while stopping 61 of the 62 shots he faced. However, the road contests haven't been as kind to him this season (3.09 GAA, .889 save percentage) and with a hungry Flyers team on tap, it wouldn't be surprising if he sees a different result Monday.

Mar 24: Pavelec was a brick wall Thursday, allowing one goal on 34 shots in a 4-1 win over the Kings. Pavelec was able to shut down the Kings and notch his second straight victory -- a rare, short streak for the netminder. The 28-year-old has turned away 61 shots in that span, but with a 2.72 GAA and .907 save percentage on the year, the Czech is as inconsistent as they come this season.

Mar 24: Pavelec will start between the pipes Thursday against the Kings, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports. Pavelec has seen most of the work for the Jets recently and posted a strong outing last time around (posted his first shutout of the season) following a couple duds in goal. He gets a tough matchup Thursday against a Kings club scoring 3.09 goals per game in March, so it may be best to look elsewhere in daily formats.

Mar 22: Pavelec stopped all 28 shots he faced in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the Canucks. The 28-year-old netminder was very sharp, putting up his first shutout of the season. Pavelec has struggled in limited action this season, so it was nice to see a good performance from the veteran. The win was just his ninth of the season, and the second in his last five starts.

Mar 22: Pavelec will protect the cage Tuesday against the Canucks, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports. Since returning from a knee injury Feb. 13, Pavelec has been abysmal, as he has notched a mere three wins in 11 outings and logged a 3.00 GAA. Tuesday's matchup will give the netminder a chance to get back on track as Vancouver is averaging a meager 2.30 goals per game, second worst in the league.

Mar 22: Pavelec is expected to start in goal in Tuesday's home game against the Canucks, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has struggled lately, registering an 0-2-0 record with an ugly 4.01 GAA and .860 save percentage in his last two outings. The former second-round pick will look to turn things around Tuesday in a favorable home matchup with a Canucks team averaging just 2.29 goals per game on the road this season, 24th in the NHL.

Mar 18: Pavelec gave up four goals on 36 shots in a 4-0 loss to the visiting Blackhawks on Friday. Another start, and another loss for Pavelec, who has now dropped four of his last five. It's not like they've been hard-luck losses, either, as he gave up 14 goals during that span. Forecast by many as the starting netminder for a Jets team pegged for the playoffs in preseason predictions, Pavelec has managed a paltry eight wins in 26 appearances this year thanks to injuries, inconsistency, and a lackluster squad in front of him. In terms of ratios, the Czech netminder owns a 2.90 GAA and a .901 save percentage this year.

Mar 18: Pavelec will tend the twine Friday against the Blackhawks, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports. Part of a revolving door between the Jets goaltenders, Pavelec will once again draw the start Friday. However, the matchup at home against a strong Blackhawks club won't do him any favors. He hasn't faced them this season, but his career 0-4-2 record with a 4.50 GAA and .863 save percentage certainly don't suggest success Friday for him. It may be best to avoid using the 28-year-old netminder in both season-long and daily formats.

Mar 16: Pavelec made only 17 saves while allowing four goals in Wednesday's 4-1 road loss to Calgary. The Czech netminder's struggles to establish a rhythm just won't go away, as he's now lost seven of his last nine starts, giving up four or more goals four times in that span. Backup Michael Hutchinson hasn't been a ton better, so he won't steal the job from Pavelec. Whoever gets the start Friday against Chicago will make for an awfully risky fantasy play.

Mar 16: Pavelec will get the start in goal on Wednesday against the Flames, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec had a really strong outing his last time out, stopping 35-of-37 shots and grabbing his first win since Mar. 5. He's conceded two or fewer goals in three of his past four and will look to build off his victory over Calgary in October when he gave up just one goal.

Mar 12: Pavelec saved 35 of 37 shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche. Pavelec came into Saturday winning just two out of his last eight outings, allowing 22 goals in that span. The netminder is in the midst of a down season, registering a 2.80 GAA and .904 save percentage. The 28-year-old reached 20 wins in his last three seasons, but with only eight this year, he most likely won't reach that feat -- barring a spectacular run.

Mar 12: Pavelec will be in the blue paint Saturday against the Avalanche, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 reports. Pavelec has underwhelmed of late, as he's tallied just two wins in his previous eight contests after coming off injured reserve. Over that span, the netminder has registered a dismal .893 save percentage. Unlikely to see a lot of pucks, the 28-year-old faces off against a Colorado squad that is only averaging 28.8 shots per game, eighth worst in the league.

Mar 8: Pavelec let in four pucks on 31 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Predators on Tuesday. Pavelec continues to struggle mightily since returning from injury early last month, as he's posted a record of just 2-5-1 in that span. As long as the rust is still there for the 28-year-old, he does not bring much to the table in terms of fantasy value. It may be worth keeping an eye on him over the next few games, though, as he could elevate his play and end up being worth look.

Mar 8: Pavelec will man the crease against the Predators on Tuesday. Pavelec has struggled since being activated off of injured reserve, as he's posted a 2-4-1 record with a 2.71 GAA. In his previous matchup with Nashville on Nov. 14, the 28-year-old allowed four pucks to find the back of the net in a relief appearance. Given the fact that he has allowed one goal or less on just four occasions, out of a possible 22 this season, the netminder's fantasy value is certainly limited.

Mar 7: Pavelec allowed two goals on 31 shots in Sunday's loss to the Oilers. While it was a strong performance from Pavelec, opposing netminder Cam Talbot was just that much better. Pavelec put together back-to-back impressive showings this weekend, but he still owns a 7-10-2 record on the season with a lacking .903 save percentage. The Jets are 13 points back of a playoff spot, but if Pavelec can keep up this strong play, he's still worth inserting into your lineup.

Mar 6: Pavelec will start between the pipes Sunday against the Oilers, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Rather than give Pavelec a day off Sunday, the Jets will turn his way for both ends of a back-to-back set. In a pretty even matchup between two subpar teams, the Jets' primary netminder will square off with Cam Talbot and an Oilers club that's worst in scoring (2.11 goals per game) away from home. While Pavelec hasn't been good by any means, his home splits (2.62 GAA, .908 save percentage) are much more favorable. It's probably best to steer clear of him in season-long formats, but he may still be an option for those in daily contests.

Mar 6: Pavelec stopped 26 of 28 shots en route to a 4-2 victory over the Habs. Pavelec recorded just his second win in his last six games, and is now 2-3-1 in that span. While this was certainly a much better game than he's had since his return from injury earlier this month, it will still take more than one good outing to inspire much confidence in fantasy owners. Until the 28-year-old can string together some solid wins, it would be wise to steer clear of him.

Mar 5: Pavelec will start in the blue paint Saturday, taking on the Canadiens at home, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. This matchup is about as even as they come for Pavelec, since the Jets and Habs separated by no more than six spots in the overall standings, offense and defense stats, and power-play percentage. The only drastic difference between the two is how the Canadiens have the fifth-ranked penalty kill, compared to 26th for the Jets. It will be tough to rely on Pavelec in fantasy leagues Saturday since he doesn't have any perceived advantage over his opponent.

Mar 1: Pavelec allowed three goals on 22 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Panthers. Pavelec has now lost four straight and is 1-3-1 in his last five games. While he wasn't exactly stellar earlier in the season before being sidelined for 33 games earlier this season with a knee injury, this stretch of games still leaves much to be desired. Steer clear of the 28-year-old until he can get himself back on track.

Mar 1: Pavelec will defend the net Tuesday night as the home starter against the Panthers, Paul Friesen of Sun Media reports. Pavelec will try to stop pucks from a Panthers attack that just got stronger with Saturday's trade acquisition of Jiri Hudler. In general, wins figure to be hard to come by for Pavelec as the Jets were sellers at the trade deadline and lost a key, first-line winger in Andrew Ladd, and complicating matters even more is that Bryan Little (head) is out for the rest of the season. All things considered, we wouldn't be too thrilled about Pavelec's fantasy prospects moving forward.

Feb 23: Pavelec allowed four goals on 26 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Stars on Tuesday. Pavelec has now lost his last three starts, with back-to-back poor outings. In his past two starts, he has allowed nine goals on 52 shots, which is good for a less than stellar .827 save percentage. The 28-year-old netminder looks to still need some time to get back into the swing of things after missing 33 games earlier in the season to a knee injury.

Feb 23: Pavelec will be between the pipes in Tuesday's home game against the Stars, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec didn't play well in his last start, allowing five goals on just 26 shots en route to a 6-5 shootout loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday. The 28-year-old netminder will look to bounce back Tuesday in a highly unfavorable home matchup with a Stars team averaging 3.16 goals per game on the road this season, third in the NHL.

Feb 18: Pavelec gave up five goals on 26 shots Thursday in Tampa, ultimately suffering a 6-5 shootout loss. The Jets were getting blown out of the building for the first three-quarters of this game, but they mounted a sudden comeback in the middle section of the third period that bailed out Pavelec, turning a 4-1 deficit into a 5-4 lead. But only 24 seconds after they took that lead, Pavelec gave one back to tie the game and send it to overtime. This certainly was a big step back from Pavelec's first two outings since returning from a lengthy injury absence, but he should continue seeing the majority of starts in net for now. That said, after this one, the Jets may let backup Michael Hutchinson get a crack at the Panthers on Saturday.

Feb 18: Pavelec will receive the starting nod Wednesday, taking on the Lightning in Tampa Bay, TSN's Brian Munz reports. The Jets have gone 3-4-0 in February, falling below the Wild for last place in the Central Division standings. Based on how Pavelec has turned in a 2.98 GAA and .901 save percentage against the Bolts in 23 career games, we're not entirely sold on Pavelec's chances for a solid outing Thursday, though he's been strong in two games since returning from a 33-game layoff due to a knee injury, having denied 48 of 51 shots between the Oilers and Hurricanes respectively.

Feb 16: Pavelec was sharp Tuesday, stopping 27 of 29 shots, but he got stuck with a 2-1 loss at the hands of the Hurricanes. That's two strong outings in a row for Pavs since returning from the knee injury that kept him out since late November. With Connor Hellebuyck having been sent down to the AHL, Pavelec could be in line for a heavy workload, as backup Michael Hutchinson hasn't done much to earn extra time in net.

Feb 16: Pavelec will start in the crease Tuesday night, facing the Hurricanes on the road, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec performed admirably against the Oilers on Saturday, stopping 21 of 22 shots in a shootout win, his first appearance between the pipes in 33 games due to a knee injury. Carolina reportedly will be without its top point getter in defenseman Justin Faulk on Tuesday, adding intrigue to Pavelec's fantasy prospects in daily leagues.

Feb 13: Pavelec turned away 21 of 22 shots in Saturday's 2-1 shootout victory over the Oilers. Pavelec returned from a knee injury and delivered, slowing down the offense of the Oilers that came in hot from their previous five-goal game. The 28-year-old looks to be the netminder moving forward, so keep tabs on him as he shakes off the rust and gets more comfortable between the pipes.

Feb 13: On Saturday night, Pavelec will draw a road start in goal against the Oilers, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec will have to dust off the cobwebs as this will be his first start since Nov. 21, when he sustained a lower-body injury upon colliding with Coyotes veteran Shane Doan. This figures to be an evenly keeled matchup for Pavelec as the Jets have just two more points than the Oilers in the league standings, but he'll have to watch out for Calder Trophy candidate Connor McDavid, who is fresh off a five-point effort against the Maple Leafs.

Feb 12: Pavelec (knee) was activated from injured reserve on Friday. Pavelec had been on the shelf since late November and missed a span of 33 games. The Czech goaltender had been skating since early January and looks to be ready for bench boss Paul Maurice to call on him as soon as possible. Things haven't changed much for the Jets during Pavelec's absence, as they continue to leak goals and leave their netminders exposed time after time.

Feb 2: Pavelec (knee) has been making progress in his recovery, but has still not been cleared for game action, reports Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. Considering the Czech netminder has been out since late November, he'll likely require an AHL stint before getting back out there for the Jets, but it sounds like he might be back within the next couple weeks. When that day comes, he may well find that he doesn't have a starting role waiting for him, as rookie Connor Hellebuyck has been a strong presence in goal for the Jets in Pavelec's absence.

Jan 6: Pavelec (knee) skated during Wednesday's practice, but didn't take any shots, Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. This is Pavelec's first time on the ice since spraining his knee Nov. 21, so it looks as though he could return before the end of the month. There's no indication as to where Pavelec will fit in once he is healthy though, with Connor Hellebuyck establishing himself as the Jets' starter in Pavelec's absence. Winnipeg could decide to carry three goalies, but more information should emerge as Pavelec's gets closer to returning.

Nov 23: Pavelec is expected to be out until January or February due to a knee sprain, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports. Pavelec's injury is a bit of a blow at the back end for the Jets. He and Michael Hutchinson have have had similar seasons to date, resulting in a fairly even split between the two in goal. However, the injury to Pavelec will likely force Hutchinson into a much more prominent role in net, with the newly-recalled Connor Hellebuyck receiving the occasional starting nod. As of now, Pavelec's return is slated for some point in either January or February, but it should begin to clear up as he progresses more in his recovery.

Nov 23: Pavelec (lower body) was placed on injured reserve by the Jets on Monday, Patrick Williams of NHL.com reports. Pavelec was seen sporting crutches following Saturday's game against the Coyotes, indicating his injury could be more than a short-term issue. The Jets called up a netminder (Connor Hellebuyck) Sunday, and another one (Joel Armia) Monday in a corresponding move, giving the club three options in net. Michael Hutchinson will likely receive the biggest workload in net during Pavelec's absence, with the potential for one of the two newly-recalled goalies sprinkling in a time or two depending on how long Paavelec misses.

Nov 21: Updating an earlier report, Pavelec, who was injured in Saturday's game in a collision with the Coyotes' Shane Doan, was seen leaving the arena with his lower leg in a cast, reports the CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. Hopefully this is just a precaution, but a cast is never a good sign. He did finish out the period after the collision. But if true, we're pretty sure Monday's game will be out.

Nov 21: Pavelec left Saturday's game with a lower-body injury and will not return, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Michael Hutchinson came into the game after Pavelec left with the injury, which was presumably the result of a collision with Arizona's Shane Doan in the second period. Consider Pavelec questionable for Monday's game against the Avalanche until more information becomes available.

Nov 21: Pavelec will start in goal Saturday night against the visiting Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Aside from a home win against the Canucks this past Wednesday, Pavelec has been wobbly between the pipes based on a 3.07 GAA and .892 save percentage in November. If you must start Pavelec in fantasy pools, proceed with caution as the Jets are not shy about turning to backup Michael Hutchinson, who owns a 2.82 GAA and .913 save percentage through nine games.

Nov 18: Pavelec stopped 29 of 30 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 victory over the Canucks. Pavelec desperately needed a performance like this considering he had a 5.27 GAA and .831 save percentage in three appearances preceding Wednesday night. After turning in a respectable .917 save percentage in the first month of the season, Pavelec has seen that number dip to .875 in six November appearances, making him difficult to trust in most league formats lately.

Nov 18: As expected, Pavelec will be between the pipes in Wednesday's game against the Canucks. Pavelec has been terrible of late, posting an 0-2-0 record with a 5.27 GAA and .831 save percentage in his last three appearances. He will look to get back on track Wednesday against a Vancouver team that has lost six of its last seven games.

Nov 18: Pavelec is expected to be in net Wednesday against the Blackhawks, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has really struggled in net this season, allowing four goals in each of his last three starts to move his GAA to 2.96 and save percentage to .901 on the season. He'll likely take his place between the pipes again Wednesday after a day off Monday, facing a Canucks team that could be a little shorthanded if Radim Vrbata ends up missing the contest.

Nov 14: Pavelec entered Saturday's game in relief of Michael Hutchinson, but allowed four goals on 27 shots himself, posting an .852 save percentage in a 7-0 loss to Nashville. It was a bad night and Pavelec has had a few of those lately, allowing 12 goals in his last three games. Making matters worse, he only played partial games in two of those matches and hasn't gotten higher than an .875 save percentage.

Nov 12: Pavelec made 28 saves on 32 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Stars. Pavelec dropped his third straight game Thursday, as his record fell to 4-6-1 on the season. With every sub-par performance, he's probably inching closer and closer to losing starts to backup Michael Hutchinson.

Nov 12: Pavelec will be starting between the pipes for Thursday night's matchup in Dallas with the Stars, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 reports. Pavelec has struggled through 11 games this season, compiling a 2.69 GAA and .908 save percentage. His sub-par start is also reflected in his 4-5-1 record. Things won't get easier for the 28-year-old Czech on Thursday as he draws a difficult road matchup against a red hot Dallas team. The Stars currently sit in first place in the Western Conference and score an average of 3.50 goals per game, the second highest average in the league.

Nov 10: Pavelec got the hook Tuesday after allowing four goals on just 12 shots against the Wild. Pavelec was saddled with the loss as backup Michael Hutchinson was called into the game midway through the second period. Pavelec is now 4-5-1 on the season with a .908 save percentage and a 2.69 GAA.

Nov 10: Pavelec will start in goal in Tuesday's game against the Wild, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Pavelec has picked up the victory for the Jets in two of the three prior games in which he started. During that span he has kept the Jets in every game, posting a 2.00 GAA and a .913 save percentage. Pavelec has been solid of late, but draws a tough matchup against a Wild team that is 8-3-2 on the year and scores just about three goals a game.

Nov 7: Pavelec stopped 20 shots in a 3-0 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. Pavelec got no offensive support Saturday and the offensively woeful Flyers finally came alive. He has just two wins in his last six starts, but for the most part, none of the losses were on totally on him.

Nov 7: Pavelec will be between the pipes in Saturday's tilt against the Flyers, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has been hot of late, posting a 2-1-0 record with a 1.95 GAA and .926 save percentage in his last four appearances. On Saturday he draws into an outstanding matchup with a Flyers team that has been awful offensively this season, averaging just 1.85 goals scored per game, 2nd worst in the NHL.

Nov 4: Pavelec stopped 24 of 26 shots in a 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs on Wednesday. Pavelec has been quite consistent of late, allowing two goals or less in each of his last four appearances. He hasn't been able to completely shake off Michael Hutchinson to become the Jets' bonafide No. 1 starter, but with a .919 save percentage, 2.45 GAA and 4-3-1 record, he's evidently played well enough for head coach Paul Maurice to use him more than Hutchinson -- who's appeared in five games thus far.

Nov 4: Pavelec will be in the cage for Wednesday's matchup with Toronto, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec will be making his eight start of the season after appearing in relief during the Jets' most recent game. While he hasn't been fantastic, Pavelec has had a solid start to the campaign, allowing two or fewer goals in five of his eight appearances. In two of those three appearances when he allowed more than two goals, he faced upwards of 40 shots on goal. The Maple Leafs have averaged just 24.8 shots on goal over their last four games, and should this trend continue, it will bode well for Pavelec tonight.

Nov 1: Pavelec allowed one goal on 17 shots in relief of Michael Hutchinson Sunday. The game was already out of hand when Pavelec took over in the second period, but he played well in relief. He's now 3-3-1 on the season with a .919 save percentage and a 2.51 GAA.

Oct 31: Pavelec gave up two goals on 21 shots en route to a 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday. Pavelec wasn't spectacular and gave up a goal with 1:14 remaining to Scott Harnell that made things a little close for comfort for the Jets, but he emerged victorious nonetheless. After giving Pavelec three straight starts from Oct. 16-23, the Jets have rotated between Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson over the last four, so owners of either will want to pay close attention as to who gets the nod each time the Jets take the ice. To date, Pavelec owns a 3-3-1 record with a .917 save percentage and 2.59 GAA -- which aren't horrendous numbers -- but they sure don't compare to Hutchinson's .949 save percentage and 1.75 GAA and 4-0 record.

Oct 31: Pavelec will start in goal Saturday against the hosting Blue Jackets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. This appears to be an attractive matchup for Pavelec, as the Jackets have been severly outmatched based on a minus-20 goal differential through 11 games. Pavelec owns a 2.69 GAA and .918 save percentage after six contests.

Oct 27: Pavelec allowed just two goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Kings. Despite the outcome, Pavelec gave Winnipeg a chance to win, but the Kings were able to extend the lead to 4-1 with two late empty-net goals. The Jets were just unable to solve Jonathan Quick and Pavelec paid the price, falling to 2-3-1 on the season. Backup Michael Hutchinson is starting to look better and better with every one of Pavelec's starts, and it's only a matter of time before coach Paul Maurice realizes this.

Oct 27: Pavelec will be between the pipes in Tuesday's game against the Kings, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec had a poor outing in his last start, allowing four goals on 31 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime loss to the Lightning. He will look to turn in a bounce back performance against a red hot Kings team that is looking to secure its sixth straight win Tuesday against Winnipeg.

Oct 18: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 41 shots in Sunday's loss to the Blues. Pavelec was under heavy pressure all day, as he's faced 43 and 41 shots in his two losses this season. After splitting starts with Michael Hutchinson for much of last season, the 28-year-old appears to have the edge thus far for the primary duties in net.

Oct 18: Pavelec will start in net Sunday against the Blues, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has started three of the Jets' five games thus far, but will make it his fourth in Sunday's game against the Blues.

Oct 16: Pavelec made 19 saves on 20 shots in a win over the Flames on Friday. Pavelec did well on a light day, and he has at least a .930 save percentage in all three of his starts so far. Michael Hutchinson has also has his moments, but Pavelec is fighting for his chance to keep the job.

Oct 16: Pavelec will be between the pipes in Friday's tilt against the Flames, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec was outstanding in his last start, turning away 40 of the 43 shots he faced. His team struggled offensively, however, and ultimately fell to the Islanders by a score of 4-2. He'll look to secure his second win of the season in a favorable matchup Friday against the Flames, who have only managed to score seven goals in their first three games of the season.

Oct 12: Pavelec was fantastic in defeat Monday, stopping 40 of 43 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Islanders. The fourth goal was an empty-netter. The bulk of Pavelec's work came in the first (16 shots) and second (20 shots) periods, as he was essentially hung out to dry by the Jets who took nine (!) minor penalties in the game's first 40 minutes. Head coach Paul Maurice hasn't yet named a starter for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, but with the way Pavelec played against the Islanders, he may just get the nod. Stay tuned.

Oct 12: Pavelec will start in net Monday against the Islanders, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec earned a victory in his first outing of the season, setting aside 29 of the 31 shots he faced in a 6-2 thrashing of Boston. He'll look to continue that success in his second start of the campaign, facing off against Thomas Greiss and the Islanders.

Oct 8: Pavelec stopped 29 of 31 shots to take home a 6-2 season-opening win in Boston on Thursday night. Pavelec gave up the game's first goal 5:36 into the first period, but almost entirely stifled the Bruins from there while his offense woke up in the latter two periods. Coming off the best season of his career, Pavelec has a legitimate chance to marginalize Michael Hutchinson if he can maintain a level of play this high, but the likeliest outcome has the Czech goalie drawing between 50 and 55 starts.

Oct 8: Pavelec will appear between the pipes in Thursday's season opener against the Bruins, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has been with the team since 2007-08, when the team was based in Atlanta and called the Thrashers. He owns an average career GAA of 2.86 and .908 save percentage, and it wouldn't be a surprise if Pavelec was on a shorter leash this season after giving way to Michael Hutchinson often last year, leading to just 46 starts and 50 appearances, totals that don't scream "starting goaltender."

Sep 26: Pavelec turned away 35 of 39 shots in Friday's preseason loss to the Oilers. Pavelec faced a barrage of shots in Friday's contest, and for the most part responded admirably. He is expected to open the season as the Jets' No. 1 goaltender, but could be threatened by the presence of Michael Hutchinson and even Connor Hellebuyck if he struggles early on.

Sep 1: Pavelec is expected to open the season as the Jets' starting goaltender, the Winnipeg Sun reports. The starting gig was frequently passed between Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson in 2014-15, but Pavelec ultimately prevailed in the job battle down the stretch, capping the regular season with three consecutive shutouts and earning every start during the Jets' first-round playoff series loss to the Ducks. The 27-year-old's mediocre track record prior to last season's career-best 2.28 GAA and .920 save percentage make him a difficult fantasy option to trust, and it's fair to wonder if he'll be pushed out of a full-time role if his historic struggles return. If Hutchinson isn't able to state a case to unseat Pavelec, top goalie prospect Connor Hellebuyck may be able to apply some pressure.

Apr 23: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's series-ending loss to the Ducks. The Jets needed Pavelec to replicate his sensational second-half play during the series to have any shot of upsetting the powerful Ducks, but he just couldn't come through. Pavelec gave up four-plus goals three times against the Ducks, and his offense simply wasn't able to pick him up. Fantasy players will have the difficult task next season of assessing whether Pavelec's improved performance in 2014-15 marked a step in the right direction, or merely an aberration for a goalie who owns an ugly 2.86 GAA and .908 save percentage over his career. His postseason play seemed to suggest it's the latter.

Apr 22: Pavelec will be between the pipes for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Ducks. Pavelec has had a rough first three games of the series, posting a 3.61 GAA and .893 save percentage while taking the loss on all three occasions. Even so, coach Paul Maurice will maintain loyalty to Pavelec, whose dazzling performance down the stretch was largely responsible for why the team was able to secure its playoff spot in the firs place. Frederik Andersen will receive the start in the opposite net.

Apr 21: Pavelec surrendered five goals on 31 shots -- including the overtime game-winner -- in Monday's Game 3 defeat to the Ducks. After closing the regular season with three consecutive shutouts, Pavelec entered the postseason hotter than just about any goalie out there. Unfortunately, he's failed to replicate that performance thus far in the playoffs, stopping only 92 of the 103 shots (.893 save percentage) he's faced through three games while taking the loss on each occasion. Even with the Jets on the cusp of elimination, it doesn't seem likely that coach Paul Maurice will turn away from Pavelec for Game 4, especially after backup goalie Michael Hutchinson regressed badly in the second half.

Apr 20: Pavelec is slated to start Monday's game against the Ducks. Down 2-0 in the series, Pavelec and the Jets will look to turn things around at home on Monday, after having been outscored by a combined tally of 6-3 over the first two games of the matchup, which were held in Anaheim.

Apr 18: Pavelec stopped 37 of 39 shots in Saturday's Game 2 loss to the Ducks. A fantastic bounce-back effort from Pavelec, who beaten for four goals in Thursday's playoff opener. While Pavelec was great Saturday, the Ducks are now up 2-0 in the series and have looked like the better team. With Game 3 set to take place in Winnipeg Monday, look for Pavelec to put up another strong performance in front of what's sure to be an electric home crowd.

Apr 16: Pavelec allowed four goals on 33 shots Thursday to take a playoff-opening loss in Anaheim. Staked to a 2-1 lead at the second intermission, Pavelec gave up three third-period goals -- two on the power play and one shorthanded -- as the Ducks' stars rallied to victory. Pavelec entered the playoffs red-hot, but he has little room for error, as the Jets desperately need to leave Anaheim with a win in one of the first two games of this series.

Apr 16: Pavelec will be in the crease for Thursday's Game 1 against the Ducks, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Pavelec looked to be on the outs as the Jets' primary netminder after Michael Hutchinson rolled to a 14-4-2 record, 1.90 GAA, and .935 save percentage prior to the All-Star break, but appears to have found a second life. Hutchinson's subsequent second-half collapse opened the door for Pavelec to earn more starts, and the veteran goalie has since delivered some of the best performances of his career to secure the No. 1 job heading into the postseason. Aside from maybe the Senators' Andrew Hammond, no goalie enters the postseason hotter than Pavelec, who posted a 9-2-1 mark and .949 save percentage in his last 12 outings, including shutouts in the final three starts.

Apr 9: Pavelec stopped all 21 shots he faced through 65 minutes, but gave up goals on both Colorado shootout attempts to take a 1-0 loss Thursday. Pavelec still gets credited with a shutout -- his third in a row -- as does Reto Berra, who stopped 21 more shots in regulation play, then outdueled Pavs handily in the shootout. The Jets' offense has been minimally helpful over the course of Pavelec's shutout streak, but his heroics were enough to help the franchise secure its first playoff spot since moving from Atlanta to Winnipeg.

Apr 9: Pavelec will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Avalanche, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. After building a six-game winning streak in March, Pavelec looked bound to revert back to his historically poor form upon surrendering 11 goals during a three-game slate. Instead, he rebounded from that rough spell to spin back-to-back shutouts over playoff-bound teams in the Wild and Blues, outings that firmly reestablished himself as the Jets' top goalie. If he's able to put the clamps on the Avalanche on Thursday, Pavelec will lead the Jets to the postseason for the first time since 2006-07, when they were known as the Atlanta Thrashers.

Apr 7: Pavelec collected his second shutout in as many days Tuesday, stopping all 30 in a 1-0 win over St. Louis.

His stats just keep improving, and he's got the Jets right in the midst of the playoff hunt.

The Jets will stick with Pavelec (who has won his last two starts) on Tuesday, on the heels of his 32-save effort in Monday's 2-0 win over the Wild. He'll face a Blues squad Tuesday that has won three straight, by a combined tally of 13-7.

Apr 5: Pavelec wasn't great Saturday in allowing four goals on 30 shots to the Canucks, but came away the victor as Winnipeg prevailed 5-4. Pavelec probably didn't deserve the W in this one, but a win is a win. He's been shaky over his last three games -- allowing four, three, and four goals in each -- but he's started nine of the Jets' last 10 games and will likely get the nod for most, if not all of their remaining four games as they push for a playoff berth.

Apr 4: Pavelec (illness) will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Canucks, Darrin Baumig of TSN 1290 reports. Pavelec was forced out of Thursday's practice with the illness, but it was never considered anything that would jeopardize his status for Saturday's game. After building a six-game winning streak, Pavelec seems to have regressed his last two times out, taking losses to the Blackhawks and Rangers while yielding a total of seven goals. The Jets enter Saturday's game tied with the Kings for the eighth spot in the Western Conference, so the team will need Pavelec to come up huge over the next week as it chases down a playoff berth.

Apr 2: Pavelec missed Thursday's practice with an illness, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The goalie's illness isn't believed to be serious, but it could nonetheless prompt coach Paul Maurice to tap Michael Hutchinson for the start in net Saturday against the Canucks. While Pavelec has been serving as the Jets' No. 1 netminder for the last couple of weeks, his performance has slipped on the heels of a six-game winning streak. Pavelec has lost his last two times out while conceding seven goals on 48 shots.

Mar 31: Pavelec gave up three goals on 24 shots -- including Chris Kreider's game-winner with 3:46 remaining -- in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers. The Jets took 1-0 and 2-1 leads in this one, but gave them back both times. Though this is Pavelec's second consecutive loss, he was solid in net; the Jets just hung him out to dry one too many times. The Jets don't play again until Saturday, and it's unclear whether they'll roll out Pavelec or Michael Hutchinson in net come the weekend.

Pavelec entered the crease Sunday with a season-best six-game winning streak, but couldn't solve the Blackhawks, who have been a persistent nemesis throughout his career. The defeat shouldn't alter Pavelec's standing as the Jets' No. 1 netminder, as his play over the preceding outings had been the primary reason the team remains in the driver's seat for the final wild-card spot out West. That being said, Pavelec's career 2.89 GAA and .907 save percentage suggest his recent run of elite play isn't sustainable, so it's tough to bet on him displacing Michael Hutchinson from the top spot on the depth chart for good.

Mar 28: Pavelec will be between the pipes for Sunday's tilt with the Blackhawks, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 reports. Despite Pavelec's horrid career numbers against the Blackhawks (0-3-2, 4.61 GAA, .867 save percentage in five outings), the Jets will stick with the goalie while he enjoys his most productive run of play this season. He's won six straight starts while yielding only seven goals during that stretch.

Mar 26: Pavelec stopped 39 of 41 shots Thursday against Montreal to come away with his sixth consecutive victory. Man, he's been good lately. Over these six starts, Pavelec hasn't finished with a save mark worse than .938, and he's given up a grand total of just seven goals. Wow. It's anyone's guess whether the consistently inconsistent Pavelec can keep it up, but he's certainly been acquitting himself well against some of the league's better teams.

Mar 26: Pavelec will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Canadiens, 680 CJOB Sports reports. Pavelec hasn't turned into a pumpkin yet while guiding the Jets to wins in his last five starts, so he'll continue to function as the team's No. 1 goalie. While Pavelec's career track record shouldn't instill much long-term confidence from his fantasy owners, the goalie's current level of play makes him a reliable activation for the time being. He'll catch a break Thursday in squaring off against Habs backup goalie Dustin Tokarski instead of Vezina Trophy frontrunner Carey Price.

Mar 24: Pavelec stopped all but one of 34 shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Oilers. Pavelec is a perfect 5-for-5 over the last five games for Winnipeg, earning wins in each while allowing a miniscule five goals over that span. He's helped the Jets keep pace in the Western Conference playoff race despite some key injuries to Dustin Byfuglien and Bryan Little, and has a firm grasp on the starter's role over Michael Hutchinson at the moment. If you need a goalie for the final stretch of the season, go see if he's available.

Mar 23: Pavelec is slated to start Monday's game against the Oilers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports. Pavelec, who made 28 saves in Saturday's 3-0 win over Washington, enters Monday's game on a roll, having won four straight starts, while allowing just four goals in that span.

Mar 21: Pavelec made 28 saves Saturday in a 3-0 win over Washington. He has won four-straight starts. He made several 10-bell saves and benefitted from three post saves, too. He has only allowed four goals in 245 minutes of action over those five games and has defeated the Bolts, Blues, Sharks and Caps in that span. Take advantage.

Mar 21: Pavelec will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports. It's the fourth consecutive start for Pavelec, who appears to have recaptured the No. 1 goalie job from rookie Michael Hutchinson for now. With the Jets fighting for their playoff lives in a competitive Western Conference, Pavelec should continue to receive the brunt of the starts while he excels. He's won each of the previous three games he's started, allowing a total of four goals while stopping 85 of 89 shots (.955 save percentage).

Mar 19: Pavelec stopped 32 of 33 through 65 minutes of action, then two of three in the shootout to come away with a 2-1 victory against the Blues on Thursday. A big victory for Pavelec and the Jets, coming as it did against the currently second-seeded Blues, whom Winnipeg could very well face in the first round of the playoffs. Pavelec's now started three straight games, winning all three while allowing a grand total of four goals. He's playing some of his best hockey at a point in time when his team needs it the most.

Mar 19: Pavelec is slated to start Thursday's contest against the Blues, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. With Pavelec having looked sharp (53 saves on 56 shots) over his last two starts, both wins, the Jets will stick with him for the third straight outing. He'll be facing a Blues' squad that is coming off back-to-back shutout victories, over the Stars on Sunday and the Flames on Tuesday.

Mar 17: Pavelec made 38 saves on 40 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over San Jose. A sparkling outing for Pavelec, and a reminder of just what he's capable of doing when things are going right. But despite Pavelec's strong showing in his last four games (two starts), he remains wildly inconsistent, and his mediocre season stats reflect that.

Mar 17: Jets coach Paul Maurice said Tuesday that he will continue to ride the hot hand between Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Michael Hutchinson made eight consecutive starts from Feb. 21 to March 12, but Pavelec is slated for a second straight start Tuesday night against the Sharks. While it seems Pavelec has overtaken Hutchinson as the team's top goaltender, one bad outing could easily switch things back. Pavelec stopped 15-of-16 shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Lightning.

Mar 17: Pavelec is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Sharks, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec, who backstopped the Jets to a 2-1 victory over the Lightning on Saturday, will draw his second straight start for the team on Tuesday, this time around against a San Jose squad coming off a 6-2 loss to Chicago on Saturday.

Mar 14: Pavelec made 15 saves for the Jets in a 2-1 victory over the Lightning on Saturday night. He made a few solid saves, but he's still the Jets' number two option. Consider him on a spot-start basis only.

Mar 14: Pavelec will be in the net Saturday against the Lightning, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. With coach Paul Maurice tapping Michael Hutchinson for the previous the previous eight starts in the net, Pavelec has seems to have settled into a firm No. 2 role for the Jets. Hutchinson has fallen back to earth after a spectacular first half, but Pavelec isn't likely to make much of a push for reclaiming the regular starting gig. He's been only so-so this season, posting a 2.56 GAA and .910 save percentage over 38 outings, and shouldn't be viewed as a strong spot-start option against a Lightning squad that leads the league in goals per game.

Mar 10: Pavelec stopped 19 of 20 shots Tuesday in relief of Michael Hutchinson, but was stuck with the losing decision in a 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Blues. Tough luck for Pavelec, who helped Winnipeg mount a spirited comeback from a 4-1 deficit to tie the game, only to give up the game-winning goal to the offensively challenged Barret Jackman with 1:03 remaining in the third period. Still, he held strong even while the Jets took a parade of third-period penalties. With Hutchinson's recent struggles, Pavelec should get a chance to start again in the near future -- perhaps Thursday in Florida.

Mar 5: Pavelec came in to relieve Michael Hutchinson in the second period of Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Senators. The relief appearance marked Pavelec's first action since Feb 19, and he stopped all three of the shots he faced. His save percentage is still just .909 on the season, so he's not expected to steal any regular playing time away from the starter, Hutchinson.

Feb 20: Pavelec was tagged for four goals on 32 shots Thursday in a 5-1 loss to Washington. Pavelec's struggles continue, as he's on his second straight month of GAA over 3.00, and his save percentage in five February games (four starts) is a meager .894. Michael Hutchinson hasn't impressed lately either, but Pavelec has done nothing to earn himself a greater share of the playing time.

Feb 19: Pavelec is slated to start Thursday's game against the Caps, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec, who will make his first start since Feb. 12, will look to help the Jets extend their winning streak to three games, with fellow goalie Michael Hutchinson having backstopped the team to back-to-back 5-4 shootout victories.

Feb 12: Pavelec stopped 23 of 26 shots Thursday in a 3-1 loss to Nashville. There's no shame in being outdueled by Pekka Rinne, but Pavelec wasn't particularly good in this one. Of course, he's never been particularly good in his career. Pavelec is a lower-end option in net when the Jets don't roll Michael Hutchinson out there.

Feb 12: Pavelec will be in the cage for Thursday's match against the Predators, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. It looks like the goalie rotation is back en vogue in Winnipeg, as coach Paul Maurice will alternate starts between Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson for the sixth straight outing. As has been the case throughout this charade, Pavelec hasn't done much to justify sharing duties with Hutchinson, as he's surrendered three goals in each of his last two turns, giving him a lukewarm 2.54 GAA and .911 save percentage for the season. Those numbers are still decent enough for fantasy owners to comfortable use Pavelec against some of the league's weaker teams on the occasions he starts, but that won't be the case Thursday against the Western Conference leaders.

Feb 9: Pavelec turned away 25 of 28 shots in Sunday's win over the Avalanche. It was Pavelec's first win in three games, as he has found his way back into the starting goaltender rotation with Michael Hutchinson. Pavelec now owns a 13-11-7 record with a .911 save percentage and 2.54 GAA. While he isn't wowing with his recent performances, he's played well enough to earn some more starts in the future. With the Jets in the hunt for a playoff spot, Pavelec makes for a decent play whenever he gets called upon.

Feb 8: Pavelec will start against the Avalanche on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec seems to have inched his way back into a split role in net with Michael Hutchinson. Sunday's start will make two in the past three games for Pavelec. He will took an overtime loss in his last outing against the Canucks, but will look for better results Sunday against the Avs.

Feb 3: Pavelec made 30 saves on 33 shots en route to a 3-2 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday. Michael Hutchinson had dropped three straight, so the Jets went back to Pavelec, and the result was the team's fifth consecutive loss. Pavelec has lost six of his last eight starts, so he's hardly made much of a case to wrest starts from Hutchinson, who still has terrific numbers despite his recent skid.

Feb 3: Coach Paul Maurice confirmed that Pavelec would start Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Brian Munz of TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg reports. With Michael Hutchinson surrendering a total of 13 goals while taking the loss in each of the team's last three starts, Pavelec will be called upon as the Jets look to get back in the win column. Backup Eddie Lack is set to man the net for the Canucks.

Feb 3: Jets coach Paul Maurice hinted that Pavelec will start Tuesday's game in Vancouver, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Michael Hutchinson has been getting most of the starts lately, but Pavelec will likely be in net for the second game of a back-to-back. Hutchinson struggled in Monday's loss to the Flames, and he was pulled in favor of Pavelec for the final 15 minutes. Of course, the season-long statistics still point strongly in Hutchinson's favor, so the one poor outing may not have any impact on the larger picture.

Jan 28: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 29 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins. It remains a mystery why coach Paul Maurice still continues to use Pavelec when he's got another goalie in the fold -- Michael Hutchinson -- that's played about as well as any this season. Pavelec has now surrendered exactly four goals in five of his last seven outings, picking up only two wins. He should probably only be counted on when the Jets play inferior opponents.

Jan 18: Pavelec saved 28 of 31 shots and turned away all three shootout shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Coyotes. Pavelec has now won two in a row, and has just two regulation losses in his last 11 starts.

Jan 15: Pavelec delivered a spectacular outing Thursday in Dallas, turning away 46 shots to come away with a 2-1 victory. Pavelec justified his place in the lineup and made his case for more starts all at once, stopping six Jamie Benn shots and another five each from Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza. Despite having given up four goals in four consecutive games -- all losses -- Pavelec got the call for the third time in the last five games over Michael Hutchinson, who's outplayed him handily this year.

Jan 15: Pavelec was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is thus on track to receive the start Thursday against the Stars, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. With Michael Hutchinson playing well, it's quite surprising that coach Paul Maurice continues to give Pavelec semi-regular starts. Pavelec has surrendered exactly four goals in each of his last four outings, losing all of those games. If that trend continues Thursday, the goalie job could finally be Hutchinson's for good.

Jan 11: Pavelec stopped 39 of 43 shots in Sunday's shootout loss to the Ducks. A good outing from Pavelec, who helped the Jets earn a point against one of the best teams in the Western Conference. The 27-year-old has now lost four straight games, giving up four goals in each of those outings. With Michael Hutchinson emerging as the starter, Pavelec has taken a backseat, as his two wins in his past eight appearances just aren't good enough. With a respectable 10-10-6 record on the season, to go with a .909 save percentage and 2.52 GAA, Pavelec still remains a decent fantasy option, but it's Hutchinson's team now.

Jan 11: Pavelec will start Sunday's game against the Ducks, TSN 1290's Rick Ralph reports. A ceremony for Teemu Selanne delayed the goalie announcements and start of the game, but Pavelec will indeed make his 27th start of the season. Michael Hutchinson has been getting most of the playing time recently, but the Jets are playing the second game of a back-to-back. Hutchinson will likely return to the net for Tuesday's game against the Panthers.

Jan 9: Pavelec allowed four goals for the third consecutive game -- all losses -- Thursday against the Coyotes. This was Pavelec's first start since the new year, as Michael Hutchinson's taken over No. 1 duties for Winnipeg, and this outing doesn't make any kind of case for the Czech netminder to win his old job back.

Jan 7: Pavelec will start between the pipes against the Coyotes on Thursday, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports. Pavelec surrendered four goals on 32 shots in his outing last Wednesday against the Islanders, and his next start won't come until over a week later. He appears to be falling behind Michael Hutchinson for the top goalie spot with the club, but will look to make the decision tougher with a strong outing against the Coyotes on Thursday.

Dec 31: Pavelec allowed four goals on 32 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders. It was Pavelec's second straight game in which he allowed four goals, and if his play doesn't improve in a hurry, he likely won't be splitting starts with Michael Hutchinson much longer. Hutchinson has been excellent this year, and could be the team's clear starter soon.

Dec 31: Pavelec will be in the crease Wednesday against the Islanders, Jeff Hamilton of CBC.ca reports. After coach Paul Maurice broke his goalie rotation out of the Christmas break by giving Michael Hutchinson three starts in a row, it looks like he's now leaning toward returning to the alternate-start pattern with his two netminders. As a result, Pavelec will man the net Wednesday, with a big opportunity ahead of him to reclaim control of the No. 1 spot on the depth chart. Hutchinson has looked more human with in allowing three goals in each of his last two performances, creating an opening for Pavelec to earn more looks if he can keep a respectable Isles attack at bay.

Dec 27: Head coach Paul Maurice has stressed that the Winnipeg Jets' goalie rotation will continue after the NHL's three day holiday break, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Pavelec will continue to split starts with Michael Hutchinson for the time being. However, Pavelec has struggled as of late, losing three of his last four games while giving up at least three goals in each of those losses. Meanwhile, Hutchinson has gone 8-2-2 this season while posting a league-leading 1.67 GAA as well as a league-leading .944 save percentage. If Pavelec continues to struggle, and Hutchinson continues to dominate, Pavelec may find himself on Winnipeg's bench more often than he finds himself starting in net moving forward.

Dec 22: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 23 shots in Sunday's overtime loss to the Flyers. After a solid outing Tuesday vs. Buffalo, Pavelec returned to his losing ways Sunday. The 27-year-old has now lost three of his past four games, giving up at least three goals in each of those losses. Considering Pavelec's recent struggles, expect Michael Hutchinson and his league-leading .940 save percentage to continue to see the majority of starts going forward.

Dec 16: Pavelec denied 27 of 28 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 rout of the Sabres. Pavelec had been rough over the last two games, giving up seven goals, and has struggled to establish much consistency at any point this year. But this is a positive outing that could lead to Pavelec drawing another start when the Bruins come visiting Friday.

Dec 16: Pavelec will be in the crease Tuesday against the Sabres, 680 CJOB Sports reports. Coach Paul Maurice has stuck firmly to his pattern of alternating starts between Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson, though he may be leaning toward reconsidering that plan given how Pavelec's last two turns have went. The netminder has yielded seven goals on 51 shots (.862 save %), taking losses to the Ducks and Avalanche in the process. It's no safe bet that he'll get things back on track against the Sabres, who look significantly more imposing than they did just two months earlier.

Dec 12: Pavelec stopped 23 of 26 through regulation and overtime, then allowed goals on both shootout attempts in a loss to Colorado on Thursday.

Dec 4: Pavelec claimed his second straight victory Wednesday, stopping 22 of 24 shots before defeating the Oilers in overtime. The win puts Pavelec back over .500 for the season (9-8-2), as he received just enough support from his mates to come out on top. Pavelec's overall numbers remain better than expected for the season, but with Michael Hutchinson also playing well, he's been forced to surrender more starts than usual lately. Coach Paul Maurice stated a desire to use both of his goalies at least once within every seven or eight days, which could work out to a roughly even split between the starts.

Dec 3: Pavelec is in line to start Wednesday against the Oilers, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. While Pavelec has seen Michael Hutchinson eat into his duties of late, the incumbent netminder did turn in a solid outing his last time out Nov. 26 against the Sabres, stopping 19 of 20 shots in a victory.

Pavelec has performed acceptably this season with a 7-8-2 record, 2.29 GAA and .917 save percentage over 19 outings, but the phenomenal play of late by Michael Hutchinson has begun to turn the Jets' goalie situation into a timeshare. Hutchinson turned in another gem in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jackets in stopping 32 of 34 shots, so Pavelec may need to match serve against the Sabres if he hopes to earn Friday's start against the Bruins.

Nov 23: Pavelec surrendered three goals on 28 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blues. The Jets have now lost five straight with Pavelec starting in net, picking up just a single point in that span.

Nov 20: Pavelec gave up four goals on 27 shots and blew a third-period lead in Thursday's loss to the Red Wings. That's four straight losses for the Jets in games Pavelec has started, though the Czech minder received a decision in just three of those. While he was good in those first two losses, he's been pretty rough over the last two, having been pulled in the first period against Minnesota on Tuesday before Thursday's four-goal performance.

Nov 20: Pavelec will man the net Thursday against the Red Wings, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. After being pulled early his last time out Sunday against the Wild, Pavelec was bypassed for Tuesday's starting nod, as backup Michael Hutchinson made the turn in the 3-1 victory over the Hurricanes. Pavelec is still enjoying a stellar season in the net for the Jets with a 7-6-2 record and .923 save percentage, but Hutchinson has muddled the team's goalie situation a bit by playing well when called upon. His presence may require Pavelec to turn in a quality outing against the Red Wings to prevent a timeshare in the net from emerging.

Nov 16: Pavelec allowed three goals on just 11 shots before being replaced in between the first and second period in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss against the Wild. Pavelec was at least spared the loss as the Jets completed a late rally to force overtime, but that's the only positive result of his outing. Still, Pavelec has been very solid this season and can chalk Sunday's performance up to starting on consecutive days.

Don't panic, though, as Pavelec has been outstanding lately, posting a .928 save percentage and 1.99 GAA on the season. Wins are hard to come by on the Jets, but considering Pavelec starts almost every game, he is proving to be a reliable fantasy option this season.

Nov 11: Pavelec stopped 24 of 26 shots Tuesday, but was stuck with a 3-0 loss at the hands of Carey Price and the Canadiens. If the Jets' offense were a little better, Pavelec would be one of the best goalies in fantasy right now, but the team isn't even averaging two goals per game. However, unlike in past years, the Czech minder has been able to post strong rate stats even in losing efforts. He's posted a .914 save mark or better in six consecutive games, though he's just 3-1-2 in that span.

Nov 10: Pavelec has played some of the best hockey of his NHL career to start the 2014-2015 season. The veteran goaltender has appeared in 14 of 15 games and is 7-4-1 with a 1.98 goals against average and a .928 save percentage, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The Jets seem to have discovered their team identity, something the organization has struggled with since returning to Winnipeg in 2011. The team has found success playing a rough and tumble brand of hockey. As a result, their team defense has been greatly improved, and their goaltenders have reaped the benefits between the pipes. However, Pavelec has also noticeably tweaked his mechanics. As Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun notes, Pavelec is "playing deeper in his net than he did in the past" and "not kicking out nearly as many juicy rebounds" as well as being "far more economical in his movement in the crease". Whatever Pavelec is doing, it's working, as he has been one of the better goaltenders thus far this NHL season. Fantasy owners who rolled the dice on Pavelec in their preseason drafts may have very well rostered a diamond in the rough.

Sure, it's a loss, but the Czech netminder can largely feel good about this game, as he held Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin off the scoresheet in regulation; unfortunately, the Pens' two superstars both got revenge by scoring on him in the shootout.

Nov 6: Pavelec will be between the pipes Thursday against the Penguins, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. With wins in four of his last five turns and a 2.00 GAA and .924 save percentage for the season, Pavelec has been a pleasant surprise in goal for the Jets in the early going. However, his meager career ratios suggest the netminder is due for some regression eventually, and Thursday's start against the Penguins -- who lead the league in scoring with 4.09 goals per game -- could prove to be his downfall. It might be wise for fantasy owners to keep Pavelec glued to their bench Thursday.

Nov 4: Pavelec won for the fourth time in five games Tuesday against Nashville, stopping 23 of 24 shots. Despite the Jets getting taken to overtime thrice in that five-game span, Pavelec has held up in impressive fashion, giving up one or zero goals in each of the four wins. This success represents a whole new leaf for Pavelec, who's never posted rate stats remotely close to the ones he's put up early on this year. Whether he can keep it up is as much as question for the Jets' defense as it is for the 27-year-old goalie.

Nov 4: Pavelec is lined up to start Tuesday's game against the Predators, Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec was the first goalie off the ice following Tuesday's morning skate, which puts him on track to start Tuesday night. Pavelec has played well lately, going 3-0-1 and giving up just five total goals over his last four starts -- three of those overtime contests.

Nov 1: Pavelec was outstanding Saturday in a 1-0 shootout win over the Rangers. He made 38 stops and was named the game's first star. He takes a beating from fans and media because of his inconsistency, but this effort was flat-out brilliant. And he has now won three of his last four starts, allowing just five goals in those four outings. The Jets might actually win some games if he plays this well.

Nov 1: Pavelec has been confirmed as the starter in goal Saturday against the Rangers, Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. It remains to be seen if Pavelec will end up getting both starts of the Jets' weekend back-to-back, but he'll at least receive his eighth straight start Saturday. He's set to match up against Henrik Lundqvist, who makes the start in goal for the Rangers.

Nov 1: Pavelec is expected to start Saturday against the Rangers, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec was the first goalie off the ice at the Jets' morning skate and looks on track to make his eighth straight start. His .908 save percentage isn't especially impressive, but he's aided his fantasy value with a 4-4-1 record and 2.34 GAA across 10 outings.

Oct 30: Pavelec stopped 27 of 28 shots Thursday, but allowed the only goal of the shootout to take a 2-1 loss at the hands of the Devils. Pavelec remains inconsistent, but he's been sharper of late, having posted three one-goal efforts in his last five outings. It's also worth noting that the Jets aren't giving up nearly so many shot attempts as they did last year -- Pavelec has yet to face 30 shots in a game this season. Last year, he had 30-plus shots put on him 29 times in 57 starts.

Oct 30: Pavelec will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Devils, according to Tom Gulitti of The Record. Pavelec will be looking for his third straight win, and fourth in five starts, Thursday night. He will face a Devils squad that has not scored more than three goals in a game since they did so in their first two games of the season.

Oct 29: Pavelec held the Islanders to three goals on 21 shots in Tuesday's victory, evening his record at 4-4 in the process. Three of Pavelec's wins have come in his last four starts, but he needed his offense to pick him up a bit Tuesday night. Pavelec owns mediocre ratios (2.52 GAA, .901 save percentage) and doesn't figure to will the Jets to victory most nights, but Winnipeg probably has enough talent at forward and on the blue line to make a .500 record sustainable over the course of an 82-game schedule.

Oct 28: Pavelec will be in the crease Tuesday against the Islanders, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Pavelec has alternated strong performances with weak ones his last four times out, holding the Hurricanes and Avalanche to one goal in victories and surrendering four goalies apiece to the Flames and Lightning in defeats. That level of inconsistency makes him a tough to count on in daily play to deliver a steady outing against a quality Islanders squad, especially with 12 games on the docket Tuesday night.

Oct 26: Pavelec stopped 22 shots in a 2-1 victory over the Avalanche on Sunday. Pavelec was pulled in his last start after giving up four goals on just 18 shots, but bounced back with a good performance against Colorado. He's still struggled on the whole this season with a save percentage below .900, but he's now allowed just one goal in two of his last three starts.

Oct 26: Pavelec will start between the pipes for the Jets on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec was pulled from Friday's start after allowing four goals on just 18 shots. He is now 2-4-0 on the season with a .899 save percentage, 2.71 GAA on the season. While he remains the top goaltender for the Jets, Pavelec's firm grasp on the spot may continue to weaken if he doesn't start putting up better performances in net.

Oct 24: Pavelec was pulled Friday against the Lightning after giving up four goals on 18 shots. Michael Hutchinson stopped all nine shots he faced in relief, but the damage had already been done, as the Jets lost for the fifth time in six games. Pavelec is now 2-4-0 on the year with a .899 save percentage and 2.71 GAA. He is the Jets' clear No.1 goalie, but his weak performance Friday may mean Hutchinson starts a few games in the near-future.

Oct 24: The Jets will stick with Pavelec in goal Friday against the Lightning, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Hurricanes on Tuesday, improving his season ratios (2.32 GAA, .913 save percentage) in the process. Though he has a middling 2-3-0 record on the season, Pavelec strong performance in the net and coach Paul Maurice's distrust of backup Michael Hutchinson should continue to give him plenty of security in his role as the Jets' No. 1 netminder.

Oct 20: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 29 shots for his third straight loss Sunday vs. Calgary. Pavelec hasn't necessarily been as bad as the losses indicate, but the team in front of him certainly has. Pavelec is a workhorse and the clear starter in Winnipeg, but don't expect much, as the Jets aren't good enough for Pavelec to put up strong win totals.

Oct 19: Pavelec will start in goal for the Jets on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec allowed two goals on 27 shots against the Predators on Sunday, leaving him with a 1-2 record while sporting a .919 save percentage and a 2.22 GAA. He will look to even up his record Sunday against the high-powered Ducks.

Oct 18: Pavelec surrendered two goals on 27 shots as the Jets fell to the Predators on Friday, 2-0. All things considered, it was a pretty good outing for Pavelec, but unfortunately, his offense couldn't put anything past opposing netminder Pekka Rinne. Even the goals that Pavelec allowed were mostly a product of bad luck, as both came on redirected shots that ended up finding the net.

Oct 17: Pavelec will be between the pipes Friday against the Predators, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has been steady in three appearances (two starts) for the Jets thus far, going 1-1-0 while saving 66 of 72 shot attempts (.917 save percentage). His mediocre career track record suggests his current level of play isn't sustainable, however, so there's strong odds his productive declines from here. That being said, his standing as the team's No. 1 goalie doesn't appear to be in jeopardy, given backup Michael Hutchinson's immense struggles during the preseason and in his first start last weekend.

Oct 13: Pavelec stopped 17 of 18 shots in Sunday's loss to the Kings, a game in which he came on for Michael Hutchinson in relief. Pavelec was set to receive the contest off after he took a loss to the Sharks on Saturday. He only saved 23 of 26 shots in that defeat to San Jose, but was able to salvage his weekend with a strong showing against the Kings in his 37:55 of action. Pavelec's hold on the starting job looked a bit tenuous heading into training camp, but Hutchinson's rough preseason and subsequent struggles in his first game have enhanced Pavelec's job security.

Oct 10: Pavelec will be the starting goaltender in Saturday's game against the Sharks, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Pavelec will be looking for his second consecutive win after giving up just two goals in a victory over the Coyotes in the Jets' season opener.

Oct 10: Pavelec stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced in Thursday's victory over Arizona. Pavelec entered the preseason not assured of his No. 1 role between the pipes, but got off to a solid start in the season opener. The second goal he surrendered came with the Jets already owning a five goal lead, so it wasn't a particularly high-leverage situation. He'll continue to get the bulk of the starts in net for Winnipeg going forward.

Oct 9: Pavelec will be between the pipes for Thursday's season opener against the Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. With a career 2.96 GAA and .906 save percentage over 288 outings, Pavelec has done little to suggest he's a capable No. 1 goalie, but his $3.9 million cap hit seems to give him more job security than he probably deserves. Backup Michael Hutchinson was expected to push Pavelec for No. 1 duties to begin the season, but Hutchinson's horrid preseason has likely ended those hopes for the time being. As a result, the Jets appear set to sink or swim again with Pavelec, with the former outcome representing a seemingly more realistic scenario.

Oct 4: Pavelec made 17 saves on 18 shots in Saturday's win over Calgary, finishing the preseason with an impressive .931 save percentage. Pavelec struggled in 2013-14, posting a 22-26-7 record, to go with a .901 save percentage and 3.01 GAA. Not much has changed in Winnipeg, so it's hard to count on a big bounce back season from the 27-year-old goalie, especially considering that backup Michael Hutchison impressed in a short amount of games last season. Pavelec may lose the starting role if his struggles from last season continue into the 2014-15 season.

Apr 7: Pavelec will make way for teammate Michael Hutchinson to make is NHL debut in net on Monday against Minnesota, according to TSN's Darrin Bauming.

That means fantasy owners need to grab Hutchinson in deep leagues or look elsewhere otherwise as Pavelec may not start as much to end the season.

Apr 6: Pavelec turned away 23 of 25 shots to defeat the Maple Leafs on Saturday. The Jets might be eliminated from playoff contention, but thanks to the work of Pavelec and his mates, they were able to deal a crucial blow to Toronto's postseason hopes as well with the 4-2 victory. Pavelec's final line would have been even nicer had he not muffed a clearance attempt behind the with 6:15 remaining in first period. Toronto's Nazem Kadri pounced on Pavelec's misstep and scored into an empty net, but the goalie put the clamps on the Leafs thereafter.

Apr 5: Pavelec will be between the pipes when the Jets take on Toronto Saturday night, according to a report by Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. Pavelec's start will be his fifth straight.

Apr 3: Pavelec was tagged for four goals on 21 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh. As has been the norm in his career, Pavelec was unable to build on the quality outing he delivered his last time out, Tuesday's win in Phoenix. With this loss, Pavelec and the Jets have officially been eliminated from the playoffs. Again.

Apr 3: Pavelec will be in the crease Thursday against the Penguins, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has performed unevenly since returning from a lower-body injury three games ago, taking a win and two losses while allowing nine goals on 81 shots (.888 save percentage). Winnipeg is just about out of the running for a playoff spot at this point, so they'll probably need Pavelec to play his best hockey of the season to have any prayer of catching Minnesota or Dallas for the final spot out West.

Apr 2: Pavelec stopped 29 shots in a 2-1 shootout win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday. Pavelec has struggled with a lower-body injury lately so to see him get a win down the stretch is nice for fantasy owners.

Mar 31: Pavelec gave up five goals on 36 shots in an overtime loss to the Ducks on Monday. Pavelec leads the league in losses with 25, and his GAA is up over 3.00 now. However, with Al Montoya banged up, and Winnipeg's playoff hopes all but dead, it's largely irrelevant at this point.

Mar 30: Pavelec allowed three goals on 16 shots before being pulled in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Kings at Staples Center. Coach Paul Maurice replaced Pavelec at the start of the second period with Al Montoya, who fared only slightly better in giving up one goal on 13 shots. Once considered the bona fide starter of the young Jets, Pavelec has floundered this season, posting a GAA of over three for the first time in his career (3.01) and a save percentage of .902 - his lowest since 2008-2009 when he went 3-7-0 with Atlanta. His record this season now sits at a disappointing 20-25-6 and he is a big reason why the Jets have yet again failed to make the playoffs since migrating from Atlanta.

Mar 29: Pavelec (lower body) will be back in the net Saturday against the Kings, Jeff Hamilton of CBC.ca reports. For the first time in six games, Pavelec will return to the crease after the Jets received dependable work from understudy Al Montoya in his stead. Pavelec faces a stiff test right off the bat with the Kings, who have won five in a row and 13 of their last 16.

Mar 26: Updating a previous report, coach Paul Maurice said Pavelec would not play Thursday, but could be an option Saturday against the Kings, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Maurice appears content to let Pavelec rest up for one more game, allowing Al Montoya to pick up another start in his stead. Pavelec's five-year contract gives him plenty of job security over Montoya once he's healthy, but he was struggling this season before suffering the injury. He owns a middling 2.97 GAA and .902 save percentage to accompany his 20-24-6 record.

Mar 26: Pavelec (lower body) indicated he is ready to play Thursday against the Sharks if needed, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Pavelec took part in a full practice Wednesday and looks like he'll be ready to at least serve in a backup capacity Thursday night. The Jets have received respectable goalie play from Al Montoya over the last few games, which may prompt coach Paul Maurice to give Pavelec an additional night off just to aid his recovery.

Mar 22: The Jets aren't expecting Pavelec back in the net until at some point during next week's road trip, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec will miss his fourth straight game Saturday as a result, and he seemingly appears doubtful for Monday's tilt with the Stars unless he makes a speedy recovery over the next two days. Backup Al Montoya has been generally reliable when called upon this season, so there's no incentive for the Jets to rush Pavelec back into the lineup at less than optimal health.

Mar 19: Pavelec (lower-body) remains day-to-day, but did work out on Wednesday, according to TSN's Darrin Bauming. It was reported earlier this week that Pavelec would miss at least a few more games. That means Al Montoya is in line to start against Colorado on Wednesday.

Pavelec left Friday's game after the first period and the team isn't taking any chances with him.

Yes, it seems to have come to that.

Mar 8: Pavelec let in five goals on 20 shot attempts in Saturday's loss to the Senators before he was pulled midway through the second period. Pavelec's improvement over the last month was a major reason behind the team's reemergence as a playoff contender following the firing of coach Claude Noel, but he seems to have fallen back into bad habits of late. He's given up at least three goals in three straight outings, all losses.

Mar 6: Pavelec stopped 38 of 41 shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Pavelec was the game's first star in a contest that saw his team outshot by a 41-18 margin. Having started each of the Jets' last four games, the Czech netminder is likely due for a rest soon. While his season-long numbers -- 20-23-5, .905 save percentage, 2.90 -- aren't pretty, Pavelec still has a firm grasp on the No. 1 goalie job in Winnipeg.

Pavelec is coming off a strong 34-save showing against the Coyotes on Thursday and will need to deliver another positive outing as the Jets continue their upward climb in the standings under new bench boss Paul Maurice.

Feb 27: Pavelec will be in the crease Thursday against the Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec's performance with the Czech Republic in the Olympics could best be described as uneven, essentially mirroring what he's done for the Jets this season. The 26-year-old slumped into the Olympics with at least three goals allowed in four of his last five contests. With 11 other games on the board Thursday, it's probably advisable to avoid using Pavelec in leagues that start only one goalie.

After he was inexplicably scratched by the Czech Republic for their first game of pool play, Pavelec will be making his fourth straight start in the net.

It looked like Pavelec was going to cruise to an easy victory with the Czechs holding a 4-0 advantage late in the second period, but Slovakia roared back with three unanswered goals to make things interesting. Pavelec would clamp down over the final 10 minutes to preserve the win, allowing the Czechs to advance to the quarterfinals, where they will face the United States. Pavelec is expected to get the start in goal Wednesday for the fourth straight game.

Feb 14: Pavelec saved 18 of 20 shot attempts to earn the win over Latvia on Friday. Pavelec was steady enough to earn the win against a very dismal Latvian team. The Czech Republic does not have any other goalies playing in the NHL, so they likely will continue to roll with Pavelec. The team used Alexander Salak and Jakub Kovar in their last game against Sweden, so they may use that combination again Saturday against Switzerland.

Feb 12: Pavelec will be in the crease Friday for the Czech Republic, when they take on Latvia, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports. Unless the Czech team plans on saving Pavelec for their Saturday match in addition to Friday, his exclusion from the active lineup Wednesday remains a puzzling one by coach Alois Hadamczik. The Czechs would have had difficulty defeating a powerful Swedish team Wednesday regardless of whom they started in the net, but Pavelec surely would have given them better odds of scoring the upset than KHL goalies Jakub Kovar and Alexander Salak. Instead, he'll look to keep the Czech's Olympic hopes alive against what looks to be a beatable Latvia squad.

Feb 11: Pavelec will not be the starting goalie for the Czech Republic in their Olympic opener against Sweden on Wednesday, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. In fact, Pavelec won't even dress in the contest, as the team will go with KHL goalie Jakub Kovar as the starter and Alexander Salak as the backup. Pavelec's standing as the only Czech Republic goalie from the world's top hockey league was thought to be enough to give him the edge on No. 1 netminding duties, but his disappointing numbers with the Jets (2.97 GAA, .901 save percentage) likely negated any advantage he might have held.

Feb 6: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 30 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals. Pavelec entered the final period with a 2-1 lead, then proceeded to give up a trio of third-period goals. It's been that kind of season thus far, though the Czech goaltender did win three of his previous four games, prior to Monday's come-from-ahead loss. Winnipeg has one more game before the Olympic break, Saturday in St. Louis. It's unclear whether Pavelec will start that contest, but the Jets don't have much incentive to rest him, outside of the fact that Al Montoya has been the better netminder this season. As the only NHL goaltender on the Czech Republic's Olympic roster, Pavelec may be in line for a busy "break". However, the Czech squad has made waves by ignoring other NHL players, so perhaps Pavelec will end up watching most of the tournament from the bench. It seems unlikely, but nothing can be ruled out on a team that selected multiple non-NHL players over Calgary's Jiri Hudler.

But a win is a win and he's had five of those in his last six games. Take advantage of this spurt and get him in your lineup if you had him toiling on the bench.

Jan 25: Pavelec will man the crease Saturday vs. the Maple Leafs, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec will make his eighth consecutive start for the Jets as he enjoys his hottest spell of the season. The goalie has won four of his past five starts, allowing two or fewer goals in each contest.

Jan 24: Pavelec turned in a very strong outing Thursday against the Sharks, making 31 saves on 32 shots, but Alex Stalock posted a shutout on the other end. Amusingly -- well, perhaps not so amusingly for the Jets or his fantasy owners -- Pavelec put up a better save percentage in this loss than he had in the prior four games, all of which he'd won. Nonetheless, it adds up to five straight good outings for Pavelec, which is great to see from a guy who's suffered from so much inconsistency so far in his career.

Jan 23: Pavelec will be in the crease Thursday vs. the Sharks, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. With four straight wins on his ledger -- including a victory over the Ducks at home, where they had been 20-0-2 on the season entering the game -- Pavelec has made his late-December/early-January swoon a distant memory. His recent run of success should make him a decent starting option Thursday, even on the road against a quality Sharks squad.

Jan 22: Pavelec stopped 40 of 42 shots Tuesday in Anaheim to hand the Ducks their first home regulation loss of the season. Anaheim had gone 20-0-2 on home ice before Pavelec and the Jets came to town and delivered the stunning upset. Pavelec's now won four straight games, allowing a mere nine goals in that span, but it's too soon to say that he's really turned the corner; we've seen nice stretches of play from him before, only to be disappointed as he falls back into mediocrity or worse.

Jan 21: Pavelec will be in the crease Tuesday vs. the Ducks, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has rattled off three straight wins and surrendered two or fewer goals on each occasion, but any excitement should be tempered a little since the performances came against a sagging Phoenix team and cellar dwellers Calgary and Edmonton. The Ducks represent an entirely different beast, and should provide a better barometer of how Pavelec is playing.

Jan 18: Pavelec stopped 20 of 22 shots as the Jets defeated the Oilers in overtime Saturday. Pavelec made it difficult on himself by allowing David Perron to tie the game at 2-2 with two minutes remaining in the third period, but teammate Jacob Trouba bailed him out in overtime with the winning tally. The goaltender is not exactly on fire after a woeful start to the month, but in limiting the Coyotes to one goal in the outing before Saturday, things are certainly starting to turn around for Pavelec.

Jan 17: Pavelec is expected to start in goal Saturday against the Oilers, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. It sounds like the Jets will stick with Pavelec for a fifth consecutive game, despite his 3.20 GAA and .875 save percentage so far in January. To his credit, Pavelec has won his last two times out, but he's still very much a risky fantasy option.

Jan 17: Pavelec got five goals of offensive support for the second straight game and stopped 20 of 22 shots in Thursday's win over Calgary. Pavelec's started this week off with a pair of low-stress wins -- having beaten Phoenix 5-1 on Monday -- thanks to all that offensive support. Still, despite playing well in these two games, the blowup-prone Czech minder remains a highly risky fantasy option. Dominik Hasek he is not.

Jan 16: Pavelec will start against Calgary on Thursday, according to TSN's Darrin Bauming. Pavelec has lost three of his last four starts. Hopefully his time under new coach Paul Maurice helps him and the Jets turn the season around. Pavelec is only a fantasy option in deeper leagues because of his record.

Jan 13: Pavelec made 18 saves on 19 shots in a win over the Coyotes on Monday. Pavelec got the Paul Maurice Era off to a good start, but he still leads the NHL in losses, and he only has a .899 save percentage.

Jan 13: Pavelec will be in the net Monday vs. the Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec's miserable swoon since December might have contributed to the firing of coach Claude Noel, but that won't stop his interim replacement, Paul Maurice, from sticking with the netminder. A five-year, $19.5 million contract gives Pavelec a decent measure of security as he struggles, although it certainly doesn't hurt his cause that backup Al Montoya hasn't been particularly good of late, either.

Jan 11: Pavelec made 20 saves in a 6-3 loss to Columbus on Saturday night. He's colder than your mother-in-law's heart ... maybe even colder. He has just two wins since the start of December and a 2-9-1 record between then and now. In good conscience, we just can't recommend him. He's an anchor on fantasy squads.

Jan 11: Pavelec will start in goal for the Jets when they face the Blue Jackets on Saturday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Pavelec has had a rough go at it lately, losing four of his last five starts. Still, the Jets are sticking with him and his 11-18-4 record with a 3.06 GAA and .901 save percentage.

Jan 7: Pavelec stopped 29 of 32 shots in a 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. With his winning percentage far from .500 it's a wonder Pavelec is still a hands down number one option in Winnipeg. Though it is obvious coach Claude Noel doesn't feel Al Montoya is a better option, neither option is worthy of fantasy starts with the exception of the deepest of leagues.

Jan 7: Pavelec will start at goalie in Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Patrick Williams of NHL.com reports. Pavelec has had a rough season in Winnipeg, going 11-17-4 with a 3.06 GAA and a .901 save percentage. He has only won one of his last nine decisions in net and faces a high-octane offense Tuesday against the Lightning.

Jan 4: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 29 shots in Saturday's loss to the Bruins. Playing for the first time in three games, Pavelec failed to deliver the inspired effort he needed to reclaim the No. 1 goalie job, making a few tough saves, but also whiffing on some easy ones. With backup Al Montoya playing dramatically better of the two goalies right now, expect Pavelec's starts to remain infrequent for the time being.

Jan 3: Pavelec is expected to start Saturday at Boston, TSN 1290's Brian Munz reports. This will be Pavelec's first start since getting pulled Dec. 27 against Minnesota, a game in which he gave up three goals on just six shots. With Al Montoya playing well in his place, Pavelec will need to have a solid game against the Bruins to at least earn back a share of the starting duties for the Jets. He does not make for a solid fantasy play right now, but monitor his performance closely.

Dec 27: Pavelec was pulled in the first period of Friday's game against the Wild after giving up three goals on six shots. Pavelec has struggled heavily of late, winning only two of his past 10 games. He lasted just 7:04 on Friday before getting pulled by coach Claude Noel. Luckily for the Jets, Al Montoya was able to step in, stopping all but one of the 23 shots he faced to power Winnipeg to a 6-4 victory. Though the coach claims the goalie switch had nothing to do with Pavelec, the 26-year-old starter now owns an .848 save percentage in his last 10 starts. He has also now surrendered nine goals over his past two games. Pavelec is not playing like a starting goalie, meaning Montoya is likely to start some games in the near future.

Dec 27: Pavelec will make his 32nd start of the season against the Minnesota Wild on Friday, according to a report by Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. Pavelec has lost four of his last five starts and his save percentage of .905 is subpar to say the least. He's a fantasy starter in deeper leagues because he plays a lot, but owners should keep in mind he's lost all three of his starts against the Wild this season.

Dec 23: Pavelec allowed six goals on 30 shots Monday night against the Oilers. The net minder now has just one win in his last eight starts, as the Jets continue to struggle. He ranks third in the league in starts though, so for fantasy owners in leagues that include saves as a stat, he's still valuable, seeing as he faces a ton of shots.

Dec 23: Pavelec will be in goal Monday against the Oilers, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has turned things around a little bit with two goals allowed in both of his last two turns, but it hasn't been enough to cover up what has been a horrendous month for the goaltender. Due in large part to his 3.26 GAA and .882 save percentage in December, Pavelec has a woeful 2-5-1 record in his eight starts this month.

Dec 22: Pavelec made 23 saves on 25 shots but took a loss against the Canucks on Sunday. Pavelec has been very busy, as he has faced the second most shots in the league. More concerning is the fact he's let up more goals than any other netminder, and he has a 2.84 GAA on the year.

Dec 21: Pavelec stopped 21 of 23 shots during the Jets' 5-2 win over the Panthers on Friday. After giving up nine goals in his previous two starts, a game against the Panthers was just what the doctor ordered. The performance brought his record to 11-14-4 with a 2.86 GAA and .908 save percentage. He'll get a much tougher test Sunday as he'll likely get the start against Vancouver.

Dec 20: Pavelec will be the starter in goal Friday vs. the Panthers, Jim Toth of 680 CJOB Radio reports. Things have been going rather poorly of late for Pavelec, who has dropped five of six starts in December and owns a horrendous .872 save percentage on the month. While a matchup against a doormat Panthers once looked favorable for Pavelec, that can't be said anymore with Florida riding a season-best five-game win streak while the Jets sag in the Western Conference standings.

Dec 17: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 31 shots in Tuesday night's loss to Buffalo. Pavelec had already been having a rough December, but coughing up four goals to the offensively challenged Sabres (last in the league in scoring) might be a new low. He has allowed 19 goals over his last five games.

Dec 17: Pavelec will start at goalie Tuesday against the Sabres, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec has been riding a cold streak in the month of December for the Jets and is coming off a terrible game in which he allowed five goals on 24 shot attempts. He has been scuffling much of the season, especially in the win column. A start Tuesday against the Sabres could be a nice boost to attempt to get back on track.

Dec 14: Pavelec was blasted for five goals in Saturday's loss to the Stars. The carnage may have been worse for Pavelec if hadn't mercifully been pulled from the game after the second period concluded.

Dec 14: Pavelec will be between the pipes Saturday vs. the Stars, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports. Thanks to three straight losses during which he's allowed a total of 10 goals, Pavelec has seen his record fall below .500 on the season. Fortunately, Saturday's game provides a good opportunity to get back on track, as he'll be matching up against the Stars' Kari Lehtonen, who has also dropped his last three decisions.

Dec 13: Pavelec gave up three goals before losing in a shootout Thursday against the Avalanche. Pavelec and the Sharks had all kinds of problems with Avs' center Matt Duchene, who had a hand in all three of their goals before beating the goalie for the winning score in the shootout. It's the third loss in a row for Pavelec, who has allowed a total of 10 goals over those contests.

Dec 12: Pavelec will start between the pipes against Colorado on Thursday, according to a report by TSN's Darrin Bauming. Pavelec has lost six of his last eight starts. All in all though he's been playing well. Three of those losses were by a 2-1 score. You can't really blame the goalie when your team is scoring one goal in front of you.

Dec 11: Pavelec matched saves with the Blues' Brian Elliott well into the third period Tuesday, but gave up a power-play goal with just over three minutes remaining to take a 2-1 loss. He stopped 18 of 20 shots on the night. While it's good to see Pavelec play better in this one after giving up five goals his last time out, he's gone a brutal 2-5-1 over his last eight starts.

Dec 10: Pavelec will be in goal Tuesday vs. the Blues, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Coach Claude Noel will return the net to his No. 1 goalie after going with backup Al Montoya in the Jtes' most recent game Saturday against the Lightning.

Dec 6: Pavelec allowed five goals on 21 shots in Thursday's loss to Florida. He'd been on a nice little run, with four straight games of two or fewer goals allowed, but unfortunately for Pavelec as well as his fantasy owners, that little stretch is sandwiched by a pair of five-goal horror shows.

Dec 5: As expected, Pavelec will get the starting nod Thursday vs. the Panthers, Jim Toth of the CJOB.com reports. Pavelec has been brilliant of late with a .947 save percentage and 1.72 GAA over his last four starts, leaving no doubt about his status as the Jets' top goalie.

Nov 29: Pavelec turned away all but two of the 34 shots he faced in Friday's 2-1 loss to Philadelphia, his fourth loss in his last five starts. Pavelec has been surprisingly solid in his last five starts, allowing two goals or fewer in every game except the November 21 loss to Chicago, were he let five by him. Pavelec simply can not be counted on to deliver consistent numbers, let alone wins. He can be an option as a spot start in daily leagues provided he has a good matchup, like the one he faced on Friday. Prior to this recent 1-3-1 run, he grabbed wins in four consecutive starts. He's perhaps the most maddening goaltender to own.

It wasn't as though Pavelec's defense helped him out much either in the wins, as he made 41, 30, and 41 saves, respectively, against the three teams.

Nov 9: Pavelec made an incredible 41 saves to silence the Predators on Friday, earning his first shutout of the season. It was actually Pavelec's first shutout since March 12, 2012, as the goalie failed to accomplish the feat in any of his 44 appearances during the strike-shortened 2012-13 campaign. After coach Claude Noel had turned to Al Montoya for the last two games, it was exactly the performance Pavelec needed to quell any talk of a job battle after he allowed three or more goals in 10 of his 13 starts entering Friday.

Nov 8: Pavelec will get the start in the net Friday against the Predators, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Coach Claude Noel handed Al Montoya the previous two starts in light of Pavelec's recent struggles, but he'll return the crease to his No. 1 netminder Friday.

After posting a GAA of 3.34 in his first three starts, Pavelec allowed just two goals Thursday night and will look for another strong outing against a Stars team that ranks just 25th in the NHL in goals per game (2.00).

Oct 10: Pavelec stopped 28 of 30 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Wild on Thursday. Although he takes a loss in the box score, it's good to see Pavelec give up just a pair of goals as his goals against average was well over three before the game in Minnesota. The Jets host the Dallas Stars on Thursday and coach Claude Noel could give Al Montoya his first action of the season given it is a back-to-back game scenario.

Oct 10: Pavelec will start in net for Thursday's game against the Wild, the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec will start his third straight game to begin the season, and will look to shut down a Minnesota squad that will be hungry for its first win. Pavelec has faced a ton of shots (108) in the first three games, but has responded well, and currently ranks second in the league with 98 saves.

Oct 6: Pavelec made 31 saves on 34 shots in a loss to the Ducks on Sunday. Pavelec has started three games so far, winning two of them. However, he has let up at least three goals in each of these games, and his career numbers are very much mediocre. So far, it seems nothing has changed.

Oct 5: Pavelec stopped 33 of 36 shots to emerge the victor in Friday's 5-3 win of the season. Opposing goalie Jonathan Quick was surprisingly not on his game Friday, allowing Pavelec to backdoor into the win despite a mostly lukewarm performance in his own right. Pavelec has ridden the Jets' impressive offense to two wins thus far this season, but since such productivity is likely unsustainable, he'll need to drastically improve on his 3.50 GAA to keep on winning.

Oct 4: Pavelec will get the start Friday against the Kings, the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec came away with the win in Tuesday's season opener despite surrendering four goals to Edmonton. He'll need to be much sharper Friday if he hopes to keep pace with the talented Jonathan Quick, who is expected to be in goal for the Kings.

Oct 1: Pavelec allowed four goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's season opener against Edmonton, but his offense rallied from a 4-2 deficit to a 5-4 win. An ugly win for Pavelec, but he'll take it, considering he's never had more wins than losses (including OT losses) in an NHL season. He's looking to buck that trend this year, but to do that, he'll need to improve on the .906 and .905 save marks he posted over the last two seasons. This wasn't a good start on that front.

Oct 1: Pavelec will start Tuesday's season-opening game against the Oilers, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. There's no doubt this is Pavelec's year to prove he can get the Jets in the pipes as the team's main man between the pipes. Pavelec and the gang lost their place in the Southeast Division when the rival Washington Capitals caught fire. Due to the shortened 48-game schedule, Pavelec and the Jets did not face the Oilers last season.

Sep 17: Pavelec stopped 22 of 24 shots in a 3-2 win over the Oilers on Tuesday night. Coach Claude Noel evidently thought the pace of the game was such that Pavelec could play start to finish. He was solid for the most part and any success he experiences in exhibition games is clearly a good confidence builder going into the regular season.

Sep 17: Pavelec will start Tuesday's preseason game against the Oilers, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. ESPN recently rated Pavelec outside the top 25 starting goalies in the league and coach Claude Noel thinks ESPN's assessment was a fair one. Noel says the pace of the game will dictate how long Pavelec plays on Tuesday, and there's no doubt he'll be a player to watch in the regular season as someone who has a lot to prove between the pipes.

Apr 25: Pavelec stopped 26 of 30 shots in a 4-2 loss to Montreal on Thursday night. Pavelec's loss officially eliminated the Jets from playoff contention. He finished the season with a record of 21-20-3 record and a respectable 2.77 goals against average.

Apr 25: Pavelec is slated to start Thursday's game against the Canadiens, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. No surprise here, in a must-win situation, as the Jets are playing their last game of the season Thursday, one point out of a playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

Apr 23: Pavelec stopped 36 of 40 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Capitals on Tuesday night. Pavelec was solid for the most part on Monday, with a bad angle opening goal given up to Matt Hendricks early in the game being the only blemish. The loss means the Jets must win their final game against Montreal on Thursday and hope for losses from the Rangers and Senators in order to sneak their way into the playoffs. From a fantasy point of view, you can bet Pavelec should be in your lineup given what's at stake, especially considering Montreal is in a big slump.

Apr 23: Pavelec will start Tuesday's game against the Caps, Jim Toth of CJOB Sports reports. It's no surprise that the Jets are sticking with their top keeper Tuesday, with the team down to two more regular season games and one point out of a playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

Apr 22: Pavelec stopped 24 of 25 shots in a 2-1 win over the Sabres on Monday night. It was a tight game but Pavelec came up huge in support of his teammates on a few occasions. If the Jets make the playoffs, Pavelec will have to continue playing the way he did on Monday, and that pressure is a good thing if you're trying to win a fantasy title this week.

Apr 21: Pavelec stopped 29 of 33 saves in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Islanders on Saturday. Pavelec made some big saves in the contest for the Jets but John Tavares sealed the win for the Isles in the shootout. The Jets are now three points behind the Washington Capitals for the Southeast division lead and a point behind the New York Rangers for the final playoff spot in the Conference. There's no doubt Pavelec will be starting all of the Jets' remaining games so be sure to keep him in the lineup.

Apr 18: Pavelec won his fifth game in a row Thursday, allowing three goals on 27 shots in a 4-3 victory over the 'Canes. Although he's on a hot streak as far as wins go, fantasy owners haven't enjoyed the ratios Pavelec's posted in the last two games, as he's surrendered three goals on 27 shots twice in a row.

Apr 18: Pavelec will start Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports. Pavelec is on a four-game roll that has lifted his record to 19-18-2, with every game being a big one for the Jets, who are tied for eighth in the Eastern Conference standings with 46 points through 43 games.

Apr 16: Pavelec allowed three goals on 27 shots through regulation and overtime Tuesday against Tampa Bay, but picked up a shootout win, his fourth straight victory. He's given up a total of seven goals in this four-game stretch, a nice improvement over the previous three games, in which he'd given up 12. That's Pavelec's inconsistency in a nutshell, but he's still got the Jets on the verge of the playoffs, tied in points with the eighth-seeded Rangers, though New York has a game in hand.

Apr 16: Pavelec will start Tuesday against the Lightning, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. Since the Jets haven't played since Thursday and are in a dogfight for a final playoff spot, there was almost no chance Pavelec wasn't getting this start. It's a decent home spot, as the Lightning have dropped their last three and are out of playoff contention.

Apr 12: Pavelec stopped 25 of 27 shots in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Panthers. Pavelec has allowed just four goals over this recent winning streak and he benefited from a ton of goal support on Thursday. The Jets don't play again until April 16th, so as much as you probably enjoyed riding Pavelec's recent success, consider looking elsewhere if you need a tender to help close out your opponent in your current playoff matchup.

Apr 11: Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun indicates that Pavelec is line to square off against Jacob Markstrom and the Panthers on Thursday.

Apr 9: Pavelec allowed just one goal on 30 shots in Tuesday's win over the Sabres. That's two wins in a row, allowing two goals in all, for Pavelec. This follows a streak in which he gave up four goals in three straight games, all losses. That's pretty reflective of his general M.O. -- consistency isn't his thing.

After falling in each of his last four starts, Pavelec finally turned things around against a Philadelphia squad that continues to ride Ilya Bryzgalov.

Apr 4: Pavelec gave up four goals for the third straight game and took his fourth consecutive regulation loss Thursday against Montreal. It's been ugly for Pavelec and the Jets lately. Despite flashes of brilliance, both Pavelec and the Jets as a whole are way too inconsistent for owners to trust him on a daily basis in fantasy.

Apr 2: Pavelec stopped 34 of 38 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders. The Czech netminder hasn't enjoyed his trip to New York at all, giving up four goals in back-to-back games against the Rangers and Isles. His inconsistency -- not to mention that of the Jets' defenders -- continues to limit his fantasy value.

Apr 1: Pavelec stopped 31-of-35 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Monday night. Since his three-game winning streak in mid-March, he's had a rough go at things. At 3-5 in his last eight starts, he's going to need to step things up for both fantasy and NHL owners alike.

Mar 30: Pavelec stopped 25 of 28 shots in Saturday afternoon's 3-1 loss to Carolina. Pavelec was solid against the Hurricanes two nights ago and a win on Saturday would have given the Jets an eight point lead in the race for the Southeast division. Instead, Carolina is right back in the thick of things. Although that doesn't help fantasy owners win this week, it could actually lend more support to the idea of Pavelec starting every single game left down the stretch as the race to the finish line heats up, which is just what the doctor ordered for owners headed to the playoffs and eying their league's championship. Keep Pavelec in your lineup going forward.

Mar 30: Pavelec will start Saturday afternoon's game against the Hurricanes, CJOB's Jim Toth reports. Pavelec finally got a rest on Thursday, when Al Montoya came off injured reserve and started against Pittsburgh. Pavelec recently downplayed the side effects of starting a lot in an interview, so it looks like he's determined to lead the Jets to the playoffs and there's a good chance he'll play all of the teams' remaining regular season games, with the exception of maybe one or two breaks. That's good reason for fantasy owners to keep him in the lineup, especially considering the team is battling for a division title and home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs.

Mar 24: Pavelec is slated to start Sunday's game against the Lightning, CJOB's Jim Toth reports. Pavelec has lost three of his last four starts and was pulled in the second period of Friday's 6-1 loss to the Capitals.

You can feel safe starting Pavelec even with Al Montoya active and ready to play.

Mar 22: Pavelec was pulled after allowing three goals on nine shots in Friday's loss to Washington, playing just 25:41. Pavelec will be happy that the Jets don't have to play Washington in their next game, as the Caps have hung seven goals on Pavelec in 30 shots. Pavelec has had flashes of brilliance this season, but they've been mixed in with spotty starts; he's allowed 16 goals in his last four starts.

Mar 22: Pavelec is slated to start Friday's game against the Capitals, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Mar 21: Pavelec stopped 21 of 25 shots in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Washington Capitals. Pavelec stopped Brooks Laich on a breakaway when the Jets were down by a pair in the third period, but the forwards simply couldn't help out their goalie and get anything past Braden Holtby. The good news is Pavelec and his teammates won't have time to dwell on the loss as the two teams play again Friday night at the MTS Centre. Keep Pavelec in your lineup regularly, but do so with the understanding that Al Montoya has been activated off of injured reserve and may indeed get the nod on Friday.

Mar 19: Pavelec stopped 27 of 28 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Bruins. If not for a careless giveaway by Zach Bogosian that led to the Bruins' only goal of the game, Pavelec would have notched his first shutout of the season. He robbed Patrice Bergeron in the first period and Zdeno Chara in the third period, keeping the Jets in the game until the offense was able to chip a few pucks through Tuukka Rask. Pavelec has now won four of his last five starts, and his play is a big reason the Jets now lead their division. Start him regularly.

Mar 17: Pavelec stopped 38 of 42 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Senators. Pavelec gave up a total of eight goals in the two starts he made this past weekend, and although that should be quite concerning for fantasy owners in the short-term, it's important to consider that the two contests were less than 24 hours apart and he did still manage to win one of them. Add that to the fact Pavelec is 9-4-1 over his last 14 starts and it's obvious he is a good starter when on top of his game. Continue to keep him in your lineup, espescially now that it's obvious coach Claude Noel will favor Pavelec over interim backup Eddie Pasquale until Al Montoya comes back from injury.

Mar 10: Pavelec stopped 25 of 27 shots in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Devils. Pavelec has now lost three of his last four starts after winning three straight starts to end the month of February. It's looking like the Jets' ticket to the playoffs lies in winning their division and although they're close, the Southeast division is possibly the weakest in the NHL, so Pavelec's win/loss total is only going to be slightly above average at best. That said, Al Montoya's return from injury won't be a big enough threat to steal away the lion's share of the starts from Pavelec, even if the team is toiling in the standings.

It's nice to see him get out of this contest giving up only one goal after the Jets as a team have looked rather porous defensively in their recent slide. Hopefully the victory on Tuesday turns things around for Pavelec and the rest of the team going forward. Either way, Pavalec should start regularly for your fantasy team, particularly in 10 and 12 team leagues, where consistent starting goaltenders are tough to come by, with many netminders in the league dealing with injuries right now.

Feb 19: Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun notes that Tuesday's game against the Sabres is likely to see Pavelec square off against Ryan Miller.

Pavelec has now lost 6 of his last 7 starts and the Jets as a team are tied for second last in the league standings with just 11 points. Although Pavelec has had at least two or three shaky starts during this recent slide, he's still been fairly good this season and with Al Montoya out for a while, he'll definitely get a chance to right the ship along with his teammates. In deeper leagues Pavelec is a must-start, but if you're fortunate enough to hold goaltenders on better teams that are closer to the top of the standings, you may want to look elsewhere until the Jets as a whole begin to finish some games in the win column.

However, the few opportunities they've allowed have been of high quality, as Pavelec's given up 10 goals on a mere 51 shots in his last three starts. Overall, he's lost four of his last five and has been far from impressive this season.

Feb 5: Pavelec stopped 17 of 19 shots in a 3-2 overtime win against the Panthers on Tuesday. In three starts before Tuesday's contest, Pavelec allowed 14 goals and appeared to be shaky. Although his victory Tuesday included a light workload, it's nice to see Pavelec back on a winning trail. He's still a solid starting goaltender to roll with going forward.

Feb 5: Pavelec will start at goalie for the Jets on Tuesday as they face off against the Panthers, TSN reports. Pavelec allowed 14 goals during the Jets' three game road trip last week. This season Pavelec, who posted a 2.91 GAA in 68 games in 2011-2012, has played in seven games to date, with a 3.55 GAA and .888 save percentage.

Feb 1: Pavelec allowed five goals on 14 shots in Friday's loss to Tampa Bay, seeing himself pulled early in the second period. Pavelec is a vexing player to own, looking like an elite goalie one night and then struggling to make simple saves the next. If you can take the swings, Pavelec is worth the risk, just make sure he isn't the only goalie on your roster.

Jan 31: Pavelec stopped 28 of 33 shots in Thursday's loss to the Panthers. Pavalec has finally seen some goal support of late and this is the first less than stellar performance he's displayed this year. Since he is the go to guy between the pipes for the Jets, consider this a bump in the road for now as he's still played very well overall to start the year.

Jan 31: Pavelec will be in goal Thursday against the Panthers, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Pavelec is coming off his poorest effort of the season Tuesday, as he surrendered four goals and made a season-low 22 saves in a 4-3 loss to the Canadiens. Still, his overall numbers have been better than advertised, and he'll match up against a Panthers squad that he has typically dominated during his career with a 7-2-1 record.

Jan 29: Pavelec did not have a strong effort Tuesday, allowing four goals on 26 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Canadiens. Pavelec will be leaned on this year and the team really battled for their netminder after starting off down 2-0. An early third period power play gave Montreal the lead and then Pavelec's counterpart Carey Price shut the door. No need to worry here as he will bounce back.

Jan 29: Pavelec will start Tuesday against the Canadiens, the Winnepeg Free Press reports. Backup Al Montoya was between the pipes in the team's most recent game Sunday against the Islanders, allowing four goals but escaping with the win. Though the win was nice, Pavelec offers more consistency game-to-game and will continue to maintain a clear grip on the starting job with the excellent work he's done thus far (2-1-1, 2.20 GAA, 93.2 save percentage) for the Jets.

Jan 27: Pavelec will get the night off while his teammate Al Montoya starts against the Islanders on Sunday night, according to Jim Toth of CJOB 680 AM. In four starts this season, Pavelec is 2-1-1 with a solid 2.21 goals against average. He could very well start more than 40 games this year, so consider Al Montoya's debut no more than a spot start.

Jan 25: Pavelec stopped 33 of 35 shots in a 4-2 win over Pittsburgh on Friday night. Pavelec allowed Sidney Crosby to sneak two goals by him in the first period but he seemed to settle down after that and his teammates finally gave him goal support to work with. There's a good chance Pavelec will start over 40 games for the Jets this season and if Friday was any indication, he could prove to be the backbone of your fantasy team.

Jan 25: Pavelec will start Friday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Winnipeg Sun's Ken Wiebe reports. Pavelec's 2.27 goals against average and .929 save percentage are both much better than his career averages. He might have more than one win on the season if his teammates could have produced more than the one goal of support he's received in his last two starts. Continue to use him as you normally would, though at this point in the week if you're sitting pretty in your goalie categories in head-to-head leagues, you may want to consider sitting Pavelec against the high octane Penguins.

Jan 22: Pavelec allowed two goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's win over Washington, notching his (and the Jets') first win of the year. Pavelec had taken losses in each of Winnipeg's first two games despite playing well overall, but this time he dominated the Caps despite facing a 30-plus shots for the second time in three games.

He'll look to shut down Washington on Tuesday.

Jan 21: Pavelec allowed one goal on 27 shots in Monday's shootout loss against the Bruins. Pavelec was impressive after a rough season-opening loss on Saturday in which he gave up four goals on 37 shots.

Jan 19: Pavelec gave up four goals on 37 shots in a losing effort against Ottawa on Saturday. Without Zach Bogosian, the Jets' blue line is definitely short-handed to begin the season. Pavelec could see a lot of rubber most nights, but a five-year, $19.5 million contract signed in June should afford him plenty of leash as the Jets' primary netminder.

He will sit down with owner Mark Chipman soon to have a face-to-face and talk about any consequences the club may make. The Jets signed him to a huge 19.5 million dollar deal over five years and intend on him being the main backstop in Winnipeg for the future. If the Jets will be successful and make a playoff push it will first start with this guy.

Nov 26: Pavelec has agreed to a six-game contract with the Lahti Pelicans of Finland's SM-liiga, TSN1290.ca reports. Pavelec previously suited up for Liberec of the Czech Extraliga earlier during the NHL offseason. He is expected to make his debut with his new team Tuesday.

Pavelec was reportedly asked to return, but felt bad about taking a roster spot from another goaltender for a team he might not stay with if an agreement to end the lockout is reached. "I had a contract to Nov. 4, and now that I saw that the NHL season could be saved, I think I'll probably go back to Canada," Pavelec said. If an agreement is not reached as soon as he anticipates, Pavelec said he and his agent would assess his situation at that point in time.

Jul 17: Pavelec has been banned from driving for 20 months in his native Czech Republic for drunk driving in a May 26 incident. He also received a six-month suspended prison sentence, the Associated Press reports. No word yet if the Jets or NHL are going to take any action, but given that any prison sentence was suspended and the ban won't affect Pavelec's ability to drive a vehicle in North America, the incident probably won't have too great of an effect on his 2012-13 playing status.

Jul 16: According to a Winnipeg Sun reports that quotes a translation from Nova Sports, Pavelec crashed his car in his native Czech Republic on Monday while driving with a .2 blood alcohol level. Neither Pavelec nor the other driver involved in the accident were hurt, according to the Nova article. While it does not sound as though Pavelec sustained any injuries in the crash, the pending legal and NHL disciplinary ramifications could compromise the 24 year-old net-minder's availability in 2012-2013. More information on where Pavelec stands with the law, the NHL, and the Jets, who recently signed him to a 5 year, $19.5 million dollar contract, will be made available as soon as it comes to light.

Jun 25: The Jets re-signed Pavelec to a five-year, $19.5 million deal TSN.ca reports. Pavelec, who was scheduled to become a restricted free agent, posted a 29-28-9 record with a 2.91 GAA in 68 games between the pipes for the Jets. He had an offer on the table to join the KHL, but the contract keeps him in Winnipeg through the 2016-17 season

Jun 23: Pavelec and the Jets are far apart on a new contract, according to the Winnipeg Free Press, and the netminder has a deal on the table from the KHL. Pavelec wants a four-year deal worth a reported $4 million per season and until Saturday, had the upper hand on the Jets with a KHL deal worth more than $5 million in his back pocket. But the Jets traded Saturday for the rights to Jonas Gustavsson, who is a free agent this summer, to perhaps put the screws into Pavelec a little bit. The two sides are said to be far apart and if a deal is not completed this weekend, the Jets will have to file a qualifying offer by June 26 or file for arbitration by July 5. The qualifying offer would be for $1.3 million, the same as last season. It's getting ugly fast as Pavelec is unlikely to accept that number.

Apr 7: After an overtime loss to the visiting Lightning Saturday night in which he allowed four goals off of 25 shots, Pavelec finished the 2011-2012 campaign with a 29-28-9 record. Though he was plagued by inconsistency all season long, "Pav" nonetheless ended the year with a .906 save percentage and, in all likelihood, earned himself the job of Winnipeg's starting goaltender moving forward.

Apr 3: Pavelec did just enough Tuesday night to secure his 29th win of the season, stopping 34 of the 38 shots the Panthers presented him with. He maintains a .907 save percentage in 2011-2012. Pavelec's endurance down the stretch has been admirable, the 24 year-old taking only four nights off since the All-Star Break. Though that much wear might have some fantasy owners worried, Pav's next matchup is opposite an offensively (and defensively) suspect Islanders club. Expect a strong performance.

Mar 31: Pavelec allowed just three Tampa Bay goals off of 39 shots Saturday, one of which was a game-winning, overtime slap-shot from Lightning standout Steven Stamkos. As the Jets have faltered in trying to secure a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, their own-zone game has been a consistent culprit. "Pav" should not shoulder much blame for Saturday's loss.

Mar 28: Pavelec gave up four goals off of 28 shots Wednesday night as the Jets dropped a 2-0 lead to the visiting Rangers. Though the Jets are playing for pride and little else in their remaining regular season games, Pavelec is a decent matchup play Friday night versus Carolina. That is assuming, of course, the Jets coaching staff gives him the starting nod for a 14th straight matchup.

Mar 28: Expect Pavelec to start Wednesday night versus the Rangers, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. "Pav" has actually fared quite well versus the Rangers this season, posting a combined .912 save percentage in his two outings against them. However, opposite a defensive unit as elite as New York's, the puck is liable to spend a lot of time in Winnipeg's zone Wednesday night. Avoid playing the Czech net-minder making 13th consecutive start if possible.

Mar 26: Pavelec stopped 29 of the 34 shots sent his way Monday night as the Senators defeated the home team Jets by a final count of 6-4. Pavelec's immediate fantasy outlook is not a rosy one; the 24 year-old goaltender will have his hands full Wednesday night opposite a Rangers squad that does just about everything well. "Pav" makes for a smarter start Friday versus a very average Carolina club.

Mar 26: Pavelec will start in goal Monday night for Winnipeg as the Jets host the Senators, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Though Monday's contest will be Pavelec's 12th consecutive start in net, a must-win game on home ice has the makings for a strong performance by the Czech net-minder.

Mar 24: Pavelec was sharp in a 3-1 loss to the Predators on Saturday night. He allowed two goals. He gave his mates a shot at the win; unfortunately, they just couldn't muster the necessary offense to help. Pavelec's ratios may not be stellar but this is a team on the rise. And he's going to be front and center in that ascent. Hook up your wagon.

Mar 24: Pavelec is expected to start Saturday at Nashville, according to TSN 1290 Radio's Ezzy G. While he certainly doesn't qualify as an 'elite' fantasy option by any stretch, Pavelec has been a reasonably steady option between the pipes this year with a 28-25-7 record thus far. However, his peripheral stats leave something to be desired (.908 save percentage, 2.84 GAA), and will undoubtedly factor greatly into whether or not Pavelec returns to play for the Jets again next season.

Mar 23: Pavelec allowed three goals off of 23 shots in Friday night's overtime, road win over the Capitals. Pavelec put on a decidedly average performance en route to his 28th win of the year.

Mar 23: Pavelec is expected to get the start Friday's game against Washington, Dan Kamal of CJOB-AM/Winnipeg reports. Pavelec's 2.84 GAA puts him outside of the top 35 goaltenders in the league in that statistical category. The team is 27-25-7 under Pavelec, and while he hasn't been great, the team hasn't had more success with backup Chris Mason.

Mar 20: Pavelec was pulled during the second period of Tuesday night's road game in Pittsburgh after allowing five goals off of 24 shots.

Mar 20: Pavelec will make his ninth straight start in net for the Jets, according to Brian Munz of TSN. The matchup against the high flying Penguins is far from ideal for Pavelec. He had better have his game face on from the drop of the first puck or things could get ugly in Pittsburgh.

Mar 18: Pavelec was unable to extend his winning streak to three Sunday night as the visiting Hurricanes sent 35 shots his way and secured a 4-3 victory. A game misconduct forced Winnipeg to make do without key defender Zach Bogosian for the second half of Sunday's third period, during which Carolina netted the contest's go-ahead and game-winning goals. All excuses aside, Pav will need to be on his A game Tuesday in Pittsburgh if the Jets are to stay alive in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Mar 18: Pavelec will start Sunday's game against Carolina, according to Rick Ralph of TSN Radio 1020.

Mar 16: Pavelec posted a .909 save percentage Friday night as the Jets defeated the visiting Capitals, 3-2. Five of Pav's last six outings have ranged from solid to spectacular, the 24 year-old Czech now starting to shake the "inconsistent" tag that has followed him for much of this season. Expect another strong performance Sunday as the Jets host a middling Carolina squad that will be skating on short rest.

Mar 9: Just one night after facing 45 shots in a road loss to Vancouver, Pavelec allowed five goals off of 27 shots in Friday night's matchup versus Calgary. Were the Jets not in the midst of a late-season push for the playoffs, Pavelec likely would have taken Friday off. Look for a bounce-back performance Wednesday, as the Czech net-minder will have four nights' rest and home ice advantage working in his favor.

Mar 8: Pavelec saw a whopping 45 shots Thursday night in Vancouver, turning away 42. The Jets were without defenseman Zach Bogosian in this road contest versus a strong Canucks attack, which helps to explain Vancouver's huge shots on net total. Pavelec is stepping up his game at the right point in the season, though, and warrants a fantasy start against lesser opponents.

Mar 5: Pavelec turned away all but one of the Sabres' 24 shots on net Monday night, delivering a 3-1 home win for the Jets. Though Monday's efforts make for two standout performances in consecutive games, Pavelec's next matchup is worrisome; the net-minder in his fifth NHL season is notoriously shaky on the road, and the Canucks are among the league's highest-scoring clubs. Proceed with caution.

Mar 1: Pavelec denied all 33 shots he faced Thursday night as the Jets blasted the division rival Panthers, 7-0. Though the Jets brass usually likes to rest Pavelec once every five or six games, he may be in for a heavier workload down the stretch as Winnipeg fights for a playoff berth. Home games, like Thursday's, have proven historically to be when the Czech goaltender is most likely to shine.

Mar 1: Steve Goldstein of Florida Panthers TV believes that Pavelec will start Thursday's game against the Panthers.

Though the Pens are among the league's top-scoring clubs, Pavelec was a virtual no-show between the pipes Saturday.

Feb 9: Pavelec stopped 32 of 34 shots sent his way Thursday night in Washington. He also denied the only two shots he faced in the game's deciding shootout, delivering an overtime win for the Jets. Though his numbers from Thursday's contest look superb, Pavelec gave his owners cause for concern in the win. While the Czech in his fifth year was stellar for the match's first fifty minutes, he broke down mid-way through the third period, allowing two Washington goals within a three minute span. Such is the lay of the land when starting Pavelec on your fantasy squad; he will deliver quality play with some regularity, but you just never know when the wheels will fall off.

Jan 21: Pavelec saw 23 shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss, letting by three. He stopped four of seven attempts in the game's deciding shootout. It was a rare middling performance for the Czech net-minder. Pavelec is typically either spectacular or miserable, with a few nights' rest and a home crowd helping his chances at being the former. Steer clear of him in the Jets' Monday night road contest at Carolina.

Jan 19: Pavelec stopped 25 of the 26 shots he faced Thursday, securing a win for the Jets over a struggling Sabres team. The question with Pavelec has never been one of ability so much as consistency. If history is any indication, Pavelec is very much liable to follow up such an impressive outing with a disappointing effort.

Jan 19: Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun speculates that Pavelec will square off against Buffalo's Ryan Miller on Thursday. Pavelec has lost his last three starts, but the Sabres have had issues of their own, dropping three consecutive games, while being outscored 15-4 in that span.

Jan 17: Pavelec, originally slated to have a night's rest Tuesday in New Jersey, replaced backup Chris Mason after a period and a half. He faced five shots, stopping four. Until Winnipeg works through its current offensive woes and lingering injuries, neither Jet goaltender makes for a smart fantasy option.

Jan 17: Pavelec will start the second of back-to-back games Tuesday against New Jersey, reports the Star-Ledger. Pavelec, who had a very good month of December (7-3-1), has struggled so far this month with just one win in five starts. In fairness however, he's not getting much offensive support from his teammates right now, as the Jets have scored just nine goals over that stretch. Furthermore, with key guys like Blake Wheeler, Dustin Byfuglien and Zach Bogosian all out of the lineup with injuries, Pavelec could continue to struggle in the win column over the foreseeable future.

Jan 16: Pavelec will not start for the Jets Monday night in Ottawa, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Having started each of the Jets' last four games, Pavelec was due for a night of rest. He should resume his roll as starter Tuesday night in New Jersey.

Jan 14: Pavelec denied 22 of 24 shots Saturday as the Jets fell to the Devils, 2-1. The Russian net-minder made some impressive late-game saves, keeping the Jets alive the whole way through. Yet despite the solid performance, Pavelec is not an advisable fantasy play in Winnipeg's next game: The goaltender in his fifth season has struggled on the road this year, and the Jets' next contest comes in Ottawa on Monday night.

Jan 14: Pavelec will start against New Jersey on Saturday, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports. Pavelec has dropped his last two decisions and overall sits at 15-15-5 on the season. He makes for a decent fantasy start on any given night, but he won't win your league for you. Make sure you have plenty of reinforcements on hand if you currently have Pavelec on your roster.

Jan 12: Pavelec defended the net admirably Thursday, stopping 35 of 37 shots and giving his team a fighting chance as the Jets fell to the Sharks 2-0. Though a save is a save for fantasy purposes, Pavelec had some beautiful stops against an aggressive San Jose attack Thursday. With the goaltender in his fifth season left to face odd-man rushes and wide-open looks from the slot throughout the night, the score in Winnipeg could easily have risen to 4-0 or even 5-0. Despite the impressive outing, however, Pavelec has proven to be inconsistent this season, and is a risky proposition for your starting lineup.

Jan 12: Pavelec will start in goal Thursday against the Sharks, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec, who let in five goals Tuesday against the Bruins, will try to right the ship Thursday against a Sharks team that had a four-game win streak snapped in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild.

Jan 10: Pavelec faced 42 shots Tuesday night in Boston, letting by five. Though the shots against total was certainly high for the Jets, Pavelec could have done more to help his team's cause Tuesday. A string of stops late in the game salvaged a single-game save percentage that could otherwise have ended up below .800. Pavelec is hard to trust for fantasy purposes.

Jan 10: Pavelec is in line to start between the pipes Tuesday in Boston, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Though Pavelec is coming off an impressive performance in Buffalo as well as a few nights' rest, his fantasy outlook for Tuesday is shaky. No team in the league scores more goals on average than Boston, and the Czech goaltender has been known to follow up strong outings with disappointing efforts.

Jan 7: Pavelec made 31 saves in a 2-1 OT win over Buffalo on Saturday. It was a nice rebound after Wednesday's sketchy performance against Montreal. He's an elite talent who gets an occasional case of the flakes. But when he's good like he was Saturday, he's very, very good.

Jan 7: Pavelec will start in net against the Sabres on Saturday, according to Dan Kamal of CJOB68 Sports. Pavelec will be looking to rebound from a weak start Wednesday against Montreal, in which he gave up six goals on just 18 shots. Overall, Pavelec's mediocre stats this year (2.94 GAA, .907 save percentage) make him a decent second or third fantasy starter, but make sure you're not relying on him as your top dog.

Jan 5: Head coach Claude Noel will give the start in goal Thursday to Chris Mason, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The news is not surprising given Pavelec's weak performance Wednesday against the Canadiens. If Mason continues to take advantage of his opportunities, there could be a more equitable split of goaltender ice time in Winnipeg moving forward.

Jan 4: Head coach Claude Noel pulled Pavelec from Wednesday's game against the Canadiens after the goaltender stopped only 18 of the 24 shots he faced. Though Pavelec certainly has shown flashes of brilliance this season, his inconsistency makes him difficult to rely on in any fantasy format. The Czech netminder tends to turn in strong performances when the Jets play at home, so don't entirely remove him from your radar just yet.

Jan 4: Pavelec will start in net for the Jets Wednesday, according to Guillaume Leffrancois of Radio-Sports Canada. Pavelec starts seemingly every game for the Jets. With the way he has played of late he has deserved it as he has given up more than two goals just once in seven starts.

Dec 31: Pavelec stopped 22 of the 24 shots he faced Saturday as Winnipeg defeated Toronto 3-2. The Czech net-minder was strong when the Jets needed him to be Saturday, helping his team hold on to the lead for a valuable in-conference win. However, despite the strong showing against Toronto, Pavelec is a shaky fantasy start moving forward. The goalie in his fifth season does his best work at home, and six of the Jets' next eight games are on the road.

Dec 30: After resting for Winnipeg's last contest, Pavelec will take back the starter's role Saturday against Toronto, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Though Pavelec's play has been a bit up and down this season, the net-minder in his fifth year tends to have his better outings when he has had a few nights' rest or is playing at home. Saturday, he will have both advantages.

Dec 29: Jets backup net-minder Chris Mason will get the start Thursday night over Pavelec, Illegal Curve reports. Head coach Claude Noel has alluded on several occasions as of late to having Mason spell Pavelec, so Thursday's announcement comes as little surprise. Giving Pavelec the night off has little to do with the relative play of the Jets' two goaltenders, but rather is aimed at giving the regular starter some well-deserved rest.

Dec 28: Pavelec stopped 32 of the 33 shots he faced Tuesday, helping Winnipeg to a 4-1 victory over Colorado. Though his play this season has been inconsistent, Pavelec showed Tuesday how dominant he can be when truly "on." Most of the Czech goaltender's strong performances have come after he has had a night or two of rest leading up to the game, as was the case Tuesday.

Dec 27: Pavelec will start in net for the Jets Tuesday, according to TSN. Pavelec is has only one victory in four starts, but in four of his last five forays onto the ice he has allowed two or fewer goals. Clearly, he's playing better than he has at any point this season.

Dec 23: Pavelec faced 39 shots from Pittsburgh on Friday, letting by four. It was a mediocre outing for the Czech goaltender, though his teammates did not provide him with much support. Friday's shots on goal discrepancy was 39-19 in favor of the Penguins, making Pavelec's chances at a win low. Expect a bounce-back effort against Colorado following the holiday break, as the Avalanche average just 2.5 goals per game.

Dec 23: according to Illegla Curve Hockey of TSN Radio 1290. Pavelec is the ironman in net for the Jets starting 29 of their 34 games on the year. He is an abysmal 1-7 with a 4.18 GAA against the Penguins in his career, and that's about as bad as it gets.

Dec 22: Kiprusoff stopped 29 of 31 Thursday to beat the Red Wings. Kipper's rate stats have been up and down, but he's received some good offensive support throughout the month of December, the result of which is a 6-2-2 record for the month.

Dec 22: Pavelec stopped all 27 shots he faced Thursday night, helping the Jets to a 4-0 home victory over Montreal. While backup Chris Mason has played admirably when called upon, Pavelec remains "the guy" in Winnipeg. With the exception of a December 10 debacle in Detroit, Pavelec has played well this month and should be owned in all fantasy formats. The Czech net minder is especially valuable when Winnipeg play at home, as the Jets have won seven of their last nine contests at MTS Centre.

Dec 20: Pavelec will be the starting goaltender in Tuesday's game against the Islanders, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec gave up seven goals in a game Dec. 10, but he has given up just five goals total in five other starts this month. That should make him a worthy starter in most formats against an Islanders team that is averaging just 2.24 GFA.

Dec 17: It appears Pavelec is in line for the starting slot against the Ducks on Saturday, the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec skipped the optional skate Friday, which seems to indicate he'll get his 28th start in 32 games. Pavelec has allowed a goal or less in four of his last six games and seems to be seeing the puck well, so Winnipeg will likely ride his hot streak for now.

Dec 16: Pavelec stopped 27 of 28 shots Thursday, but the one goal he allowed was Alex Ovechkin's tally with 1:14 remaining that broke a scoreless tie and sent Winnipeg to a loss. Pavelec has been playing extremely well lately with the exception of a seven-goal disaster against the Red Wings. He's allowed a total of five goals in his other five December starts, including Thursday's game.

Dec 15: Pavelec is expected to be in net Thursday as the Jets take on the Capitals, the Winnipeg Sun reports. Pavelec is coming off a stellar performance, defeating the Wild 2-1. Although his goals against average of 3.11 is high, he still has won four of his last five games and allowed more than two goals only once.

Dec 14: Pavelec bounced back from his worst outing of the season to hold the Wild to one goal on 35 shots to get the win Tuesday. Pavelec has won four of his last five starts, allowing two or fewer goals in the four wins, and seventh in the bloodbath against the Red Wings over the weekend.

Dec 13: Pavelec will pull on the pads and start for the Jets Tuesday, according to Ken Wiebe of SHAW-TV Winnipeg. Pavelec was bombed back to the stone age in his last outing as the Red Wings beat him seven times in 41 minutes. Pavelec had finally seemed like he had gotten himself on track allowing just three goals in the three previous games, but he continues to be unable to consistently give the Jets a chance to win each night.

Dec 10: Pavelec was pelted with pucks Saturday in Detroit. He allowed seven goals on 26 shots before a mercy pull in the third period. We're actually surprised he didn't get yanked in the second when the Wings drained three in 5:28 and four in just over 12 minutes. The rest of his mates were of no help at all.

Dec 10: Pavelec will start in goal against the Red Wings on Saturday, according to TSN's Brian Munz. Pavelec, is just barely keeping his head above water this season with a 10-9-4 record. His peripheral stats aren't great either (2.99 GAA, .906 save percentage), an indication that he relies on the Jets' offense to bail him out most nights. Use him sparingly if possible.

Nov 26: Pavelec was sharp in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Boston. He made 32 saves. He's been much maligned this season but the game broadcasters named him one of the game stars for his efforts. He has been strong in his last five. The light at the end of the tunnel is near.

Nov 26: Pavelec will start Saturday at Boston, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Both teams are playing their second game in as many nights, so it will be interesting to see which squad has more gas in the tank. That said, the Bruins are coming off just their first loss in almost a month, so Pavelec will surely have his hands full. Make sure you examine closely all your other fantasy goalie options before you run with Pavelec in this one.

Nov 23: Pavelec will start Wednesday night against the Caps, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Tread carefully here.

Nov 18: Pavelec stopped 31 of 32 shots against the Caps on Thursday to win his second start in a row. Pavelec has been quite the workhorse for the Jets, starting the last 11 games. While his overall numbers are dreadful, he's on the upswing and clearly has job security.

Nov 17: Pavelec will get yet another start for the Jets on Thursday against the Capitals, according to Stephen Wyhno of the Washington Times. The Jets keep calling Pavelec's name, but his overall numbers are dreadful (just look at that horrible 3.26 GAA). He has been better of late allowing four goals in two games, but until he shows some more consistent play it's tough to start him at this point unless you are desperate in net.

Nov 14: Pavelec turned aside 30 of the 32 shots he faced Monday as he picked up a win against Tampa Bay. Pavelec has gotten off to a slow start, he has a .895 SV% and a 3.26 GAA, and he does not play for a good team. His numbers will probably get better, but they probably won't end up being good enough to merit much fantasy value.

Nov 14: Pavelec will start his tenth straight game for the Jets on Monday, Ken Wiebe of Sun Sports reports. Pavelec is 4-7-3 on the year and is severely struggling according to the standard he set last season (91.4% saves, 2.73 GAA). Despite seeing about one shot fewer per game (28.5 vs. 29.4), Pavelec's GAA has shot up to 3.35.

Nov 12: Pavelec made 25 saves in a 2-1 loss to Columbus on Saturday night. So much for an easy ride. His opponent, Steve Mason, turned in one of his best efforts of the season and the Jets just couldn't solve him. The Jets haven't been good this season and their short-term schedule -- Monday against Tampa and Thursday against Washington -- make Pavelec bench-worthy.

Nov 12: Pavelec will make his ninth consecutive start Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. This will be a battle between two of the NHL's most embattled goaltenders. At one end of the rink you have Pavelec, who is 4-6-3 this season with a 3.45 GAA and .890 SV%. However, at the other end you have Steve Mason, who is having an even rougher time this season (2-11-1, 3.88, .866). This could be an ugly one, folks, but in the end you have to like Pavelec in this matchup. He's worth a roll against the lowly Jackets.

Nov 10: Pavelec lasted only two periods Thursday in a loss to Florida, surrendering four goals on 15 shots before being pulled for backup Peter Mannino. That's ten goals allowed in the last two games for Pavelec. As has been the norm so far in his young career, just when it starts looking like Pavelec is getting on track -- and he had been over the preceding five-game stretch -- he takes a step backward. That inconsistency makes him a highly risky fantasy play.

Nov 10: Pavelec will make his 8th straight start for the Jets on Thursday, according to the Winnipeg Sun. Though he's getting all the work, Ondrej isn't racking up the wins as he has only one in his last four outings and two in his last six trips on the ice.

Nov 8: Pavelec will start in net as the Jets take on the Sabres Tuesday, according to Dan Kamal of CJOB68 Sports. Pavelec has made three appearances against the Sabres in his career with poor results (3.79 GAA, .890 save percentage). He's played better of late after a slow start to the year by allowing just five goals in his last three outings, though he has won just one game in that time for the struggling Jets.

Nov 5: Pavelec made 25 saves in a 3-2 OT loss to New Jersey on Saturday night. With back-up Chris Mason out with an injury, Pavelec will get a ton of ice.

Nov 5: Pavelec will be the starting goaltender Saturday against the Devils, the Winnipeg Sun reports. This is no surprise as Pavelec was stellar in shutting out the Islanders on Thursday. In fact, with three wins in his last four games, Pavelec has been instrumental in getting the Jets turned around following their slow start to the season. He's not an elite fantasy option by any stretch, but he's a decent spot start on those nights where your stronger goalies may be sitting idle.

Nov 3: Pavelec stopped all 34 shots he faced in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Islanders. A different story from one week earlier his 9-8 win in the fiasco at Philadelphia. Pavelec is 3-1 his last four starts and is inspiring confidence in his teammates. Despite his recent run of form, Pavelec still needs to be carefully weighed and considered before deployment, as he is not on the most defensively sound team in the league.

Nov 3: Pavelec will start in goal Thursday night against the Islanders, tsn.ca reports. Pavelec is actually a decent play tonight, facing an Islanders team that ranks 29th in the NHL with 2.0 goals per game. That said, he is still part of a Winnipeg squad that ranks 29th with 3.5 goals allowed per game, so exercise caution.

Nov 3: Pavelec will make his 5th straight start in net for the Jets on Thursday night, according to the Winnepeg Sun. Pavelec was bombed for seven goals against the Flyers, but he's rebounded to allow four goals in his last two outings.

Oct 31: Pavelec stopped 39 shots in regulation and both shootout attempts in Monday's win over Florida. Pavelec may want to speak with his defense, as the Jets have allowed over 40 shots in two of his last three starts, coincidentally both have been wins. Pavelec has three wins on a team that won't stop many teams from scoring. Pavelec and any Jets goalie come with an inherent risk and are to be used only in favorable match ups.

Oct 31: Pavelec will start in goal Monday night against the Panthers, CJOB-AM's Dan Kamal reports. Pavelec hasn't gotten off to a great start this season, as he has compiled just two wins to date. His peripheral numbers (.876 SV%; 3.75 GAA) are similarly poor, though his allowing seven goals in a wild win over the Flyers last Friday make those numbers a bit skewed. Consider all possible alternatives before rolling with Pavelec in fantasy leagues for his latest road matchup.

Oct 29: Pavelec put in a strong effort Saturday in a 1-0 loss to the Lightning. He stopped 26 shots. The only goal was a tough one -- it came on a bad angle on the power play with just 40 seconds left in the second period. He'd like to have that one back for sure. But his play Saturday could be an indication he's turned a bit of a corner -- he's way better than he's shown.

Oct 29: Pavelec will get the start for the Jets on Saturday in their battle with the Lightning, according to IFPress. This decision was made easier by the groin injury suffered by Chris Mason. It's not believed that the injury to Mason will be a long term issue, but for now the Jets will turn to Pavelec and hope he does better than he has to this point of the season.

Oct 28: Pavelec was pulled more than halfway through the third period Thursday after giving up seven goals on 43 shots against the Flyers in what turned out to be a 9-8 win.

Oct 17: Pavelec stopped 28 shots in Monday's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh, his and the Jets' first in Winnipeg. The Jets, who most people forget are still the hapless Thrashers, played solidly in the victory with Pavelec turning aside a Pittsburgh attack minus Evgeni Malkin. Pavelec figures to see the bulk of the starts for Winnipeg, only to be spelled by Chris Mason occasionally. Keep in mind that while Pavelec is talented, the team in front of him is not the most reliable group of defenders.

Oct 17: The Penguins will get to face a Jets club with Pavelec in net on Monday, according to Russ Hobson. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are not suiting up, and that should go a long way to helping the Jets emerge with a victory.

Oct 14: Pavelec stopped 28 of the Blackhawks' 32 shots Wednesday in the Jets' 4-3 loss. Pavelec made some big saves against the Blackhawks Thursday night, but didn't receive much help defensively. His heady play actually kept the Jets in the game over the last 30 minutes but the team couldn't muster a tying goal. It's early in the season but Pavelec has a very poor .833 save percentage and has seen his average goals allowed balloon to over five per game. The Jets have a lot of faith in their young netminder though, so he should continue to stick in net as the Jets try to build on their talented youth.

Apr 7: Pavelec will start Thursday's game against the Rangers, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Pavelec has been a disaster in the second half of this season, with just six wins in 29 appearances. He's also posted a dismal 3.66 GAA and .876 SV% over that span. If you are attempting to win your fantasy pool this week and are looking for quality fantasy goalie options, steer well clear of Pavelec.

Jul 16: With unrestricted free agent Kari Lehtonen coming to terms on Wednesday the Thrashers now have two goalies under contract for the upcoming two seasons...leaving Pavelec's future very much in the air. Pavlec has done all he can do in the AHL and had a so-so debut last year in the NHL (3-3-0, 3.11 GAA and .905 SV%). He's Atlanta's most talented prospect but has nowhere to play on the big club now. He'll need an injury or a trade (which could very easily happen this season) to become fantasy revelant.

May 29: One decision the Thrashers must make this summer is what to do with their backup goalie. Do they bring UFA Johan Hedberg back or give the 21 year old Pavelec a shot, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Hedberg has been servicable as in his two years with the Thrashers. Much of this decision will depend on how big of a splash the Thrashers make in the free agent pool this summer. If Pavelec gets a shot he's worth owning in deep leagues and keeper leagues. He's been tearing up the AHL playoffs (11 wins, 2.18 GAA, .928 SV%) and was also held his own in a short stint in the NHL last year (3-3-0, 3.11 GAA, .905 SV%).

Nov 30: Pavelec will be sent back to the Wolves (AHL) with Kari Lehtonen (groin) returning to Atlanta this weekend, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Lehtonen hasn't experienced any problems with his groin during his conditioning stint in Chicago, so Pavelec will return to the Wolves at least temporarily, while Thrashers either showcase Lehtonen for the next several weeks or look to deal veteran Johan Hedberg to potentially clear space for the youngster. Outside of keeper leagues, non-Lehtonen and non-Hedberg owners really have little to gain by holding onto him right now.

Nov 28: With back-to-back games coming up with the Islanders and Devils, we'll probably see the rookie Pavelec one more time before he's sent back down to the AHL as Kari Lehtonen should be returning from injury, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. There were some rumors swirling around that Lehtonen was being shopped around but there never looked like there was much truth in them. Pavelec's fantasy value drops to zero outside of keeper leagues. Pavelec owners will have to wait for another Lehtonen injury.

Nov 24: Pavelec made 29 saves in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Penguins. Two of the goals came with the man advantage. This kid is playing well but will he stick with the squad once Kari Lehtonen returns? We're not sure. But if he doesn't, we do know his keeper value has been ratcheted up a few notches because of his solid play.

Nov 6: Pavelec will start against the Caps on Tuesday night, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Thrashers Blog reports. Not much surprise here as GM/head coach Don Waddell was tipping his hand in that direction after Monday's practice. Given how banged up Washington is, Pavelec is a decent start for fantasy owners on Tuesday night.

Nov 5: After great second and third periods in his first start against the Lightning on Saturday it looks like Pavelec has earned the start against the Capitals on Tuesday night. "If I was a guessing man, that'd be a pretty good guess," Coach Don Waddell said after Monday's practice, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Pavelec would be a good start against the Capitals but don't expect too much down the line from the talented youngster. Once Kari Lehtonen comes back (early to mid December) we can't see any situation other than Pavelec getting more seasoning in the minors.

Nov 3: Pavelec recorded a win in his first career start as he stopped 30 of 34 shots Saturday night against the Bolts, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Pavelec let in four goals in the first half of the game but settled down nicely in the second half and the Thrashers responded with five unanswered goals. Johan Hedberg has been playing pretty well so Pavelec will continue to see spot starts until Kari Lehtonen returns in December.

Nov 3: Pavelec is going to start Saturday's game against Tampa Bay, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Atlanta has struggled in Tampa so far this season and after Johan Hedberg was shelled by Ottawa on Thursday night, the Thrashers will turn to the rookie as they look to finish their current road trip on a high note.

Nov 1: Pavelec came in as relief for a beleaguered Johan Hedberg during a 6-4 loss to the host Senators on Thursday. Pavelec stopped all but one of the shots he faced and may be in line for more NHL starts Kari Lehtonen (groin) on the shelf.

Oct 26: It was expected that Pavelec would get his first NHL start against the Blackhawks on Saturday ngiht but Johan Hedberg will instead get the nod, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Coach Don Waddell stated that Pavelec will get a start in one of the next four games. If he turns in a stellar performance it may increase his playing time and make him a viable option in fantasy leagues.

Oct 25: Pavelec is expected to make his first NHL start against the Chicago, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Barring a Johan Hedberg shutout in his start against the Predators on Thursday, the 20-year-old rookie will get the nod at home on Saturday. As the organization's top prospect, Pavelec could prove himself worthy of being a regular starter with some strong performances while Kari Lehtonen (groin) is on IR.
