A Slimmer Ondrej Pavelec Confident With The #1 Goalie Tag

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,

A slimmed-down Winnipeg Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec is back in town, saying he's in better shape and can’t wait for the start of training camp.

“It’s been long,” Pavelec said of the summer. “I wasn’t happy last year with the way I played. It’s no secret. I want to help the team every night get the two points. That’s my goal.”...

Pavelec is coming off a disappointing season that saw him rank among the worst NHL starters, statistically, with a goals-agasinst-average of 3.01 and a save percentage of .901.

His record was 22-26-8.

Yet, Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff publicly endorsed him as the No. 1 goalie going into the coming season.

“That helped a lot, for sure,” Pavelec said. “To hear that from a GM gives you the confidence that he still believes (in) you.”
