Mazanec stopped all 30 shots he faced for his third win in a row and first shutout of the season Tuesday as his AHL Milwaukee Admirals topped the Grand Rapids Griffins 3-0. Mazanec has played well for the Ads this season, posting a 9-6-1 record along with a 2.52 GAA and .916 save percentage. Although he's been outshone by rookie Juuse Saros (13-3, 2.41, .919), Mazanec appears to have the hot hand at the moment, and should continue to see the majority of starts for the Admirals over the foreseeable future. Longer term, the 24-year-old Mazanec is seen as a potential everyday starting goalie for the Predators, but he's still at least a season or two away from active duty with Pekka Rinne and Carter Hutton still ahead of him on the depth chart. In the meantime, he's a solid long-term hold in fantasy keeper formats.

Mazanec has been recalled on an emergency basis from AHL Milwaukee on Monday. Mazanec's recall was prompted by an injury to current Nashville backup Carter Hutton.

Depending on the severity of Hutton's injury, Mazanec may not even make an appearance during this stint in the NHL, as starter Pekka Rinne was just rested on November 1.
