Ville Husso Stabilizes Detroit's Goaltending

11/16/2022 at 5:21pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

"Ville has been our best player," coach Derek Lalonde said after last week's loss to the New York Rangers. "He's been our MVP."

Sundqvist saw something similar last season in St. Louis, when Husso took over the starting role after Jordan Binnington struggled with the Blues.

Husso was inexperienced at the NHL level, but stepped in and stabilized the Blues and helped them into the playoffs.

Husso finished last season with a 25-7-6 record, with a 2.56 GAA and .919 SVS.

"We all were a little bit surprised how good he was last season," Sundqvist said. "Especially, because it's hard for a guy like him to come in and who hasn't played that many games in the NHL, never been a starter and taking over that position and doing what he did.

"That surprised a lot of people, and it shows his talent, and how hard he's worked to get to where he is. I'm happy for him. He gives you an opportunity (to win), making all those big saves when you need them. It gives you a chance to win every night.
