Goaltenders In The Organization

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Over the next few days, The Detroit News will take a look at the various Wings’ position groups, how they have fared this season, and what to expect going forward.

Up today: goaltending.

Filip Larsson
Stats: 7 games (Grand Rapids), 2-5-0, 4.01 GAA, .843 SVS, 0 shutouts; 10 games (Toledo), 4-6-0, 2.72 GAA, .910 SVS, 0 shutouts

Outlook: Larsson struggled mightily in his rookie pro season. He had an awful start in the AHL, then was sent to Toledo where injuries also slowed Larsson’s development. His confidence got dented early, and it wasn't easy for Larsson to regain it.

Larsson is only 21, so there’s plenty of time to rebound. But this season was a step back, though jumping from Sweden to the AHL can be a difficult jump for many players.

Keith Petruzzelli
Stats: 34 games (Quinnipiac, ECAC), 21-10-2, 2.01 GAA, .920 SVS, 3 shutouts

Outlook: The junior had his best season since arriving in college, and continues to raise expectations within the Wings’ organization. The 2017 3rd-round draft pick is 6-foot-5, covers a lot of the net, and has shown steady improvement.

Scouts like his instincts around the net, and the confidence he played with this season.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
