With Justin Peters and Keith Kinkaid making their season debuts Tuesday night, 15 teams have now used at least three goalies this season. Of those 16 goalies (Calgary has used two), we're sounding the fantasy alarm on one we feel is primed to have a breakout in the second half of the season.
Jacob Markstrom is just one piece of a large shipment of AHL players currently in the Panthers' lineup. But due to the inconsistency of Scott Clemmensen and the possible season-ending injury to Jose Theodore, he not only has a chance to play the majority of the minutes, but to carry the entire team.
During Tuesday night's 4-1 win against Winnipeg, Markstrom, who was the game's second star after stopping 30 of 31 shots, was owned in just 15 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy leagues. As of Thursday morning, he was owned in only 20 percent of leagues.
Whether you're dangerously thin in goal due to injuries, or you just want to bolster your depth in the second half, we suggest you get him while the getting's good. In three games this season, he has a 2.36 goals-against average and .931 save percentage, stopping 95 of 102 shots.
