Grubauer will be in goal Tuesday against the Avalanche, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Grubauer will get his first start of the season, although it comes at an odd time with the team set to honor Braden Holtby with a pregame ceremony for his Vezina Trophy win. Grubauer was decent in relief last year after posting a 8-9-1 record with a 2.32 GAA. Although it's early in the year, it appears as though coach Barry Trotz is trying to utilize the 24-year-old more frequently to keep Holtby fresh for the postseason. Fantasy owners of both netminders will want to closely monitor the playing-time split.
