• Strong preseason for Kings' backup

    News: Jhonas Enroth finished with a .933 save percentage and a 1.61 goals against average in parts of three preseason games for the Kings.
    Analysis: Jhonas Enroth split time with Jonathan Quick this preseason but that trend doesn't figure to continue into the regular season with Quick set to see a heavy workload again for the Kings. Enroth's numbers should ultimately improve this year, however, as he'll be playing behind a solid Kings blue line as opposed to the porous defenses of the Sabres and Stars.
  • Kings Sign Enroth

    News: The Kings signed Jhonas Enroth to a one-year deal worth $1.25 million on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reports.
    Analysis: Jhonas Enroth will take over as the Kings' top backup behind starter Jonathan Quick, in the wake of the team's recent trade of Martin Jones. As long as Quick remains healthy, Enroth isn't likely to see a ton of action, but it's not hard to imagine the Kings -- who failed to qualify for the 2014-15 playoffs -- turning things around this season, a scenario that would give Enroth value in daily formats as a spot starter.
  • Stars' Enroth Will Test Free Agency

    News: Despite having had talks, Stars GM Jim Nill confirmed on Friday that Jhonas Enroth will test free agency.
    Analysis: Jhonas Enroth is one of just a handful of goaltenders who will hit free agency and has been a NHL starter previously. His career numbers are decent, but he had a rough year leading up to free agency, playing 50 games split between the cellar-dwelling Buffalo Sabres and the defensively starved Stars. He finished the year with a .904 save percentage.
  • Stars' Enroth Closes Season With 24-Save Win

    News: Jhonas Enroth stopped 24 of 25 shots in Saturday's win over Nashville.
    Analysis: Jhonas Enroth finished the year strong, winning four straight games and stopping 99 of 104 shots in the process (.952 save percentage). If the Stars re-sign the 26-year-old in the summer, he could be of some decent fantasy value next season. With the way Kari Lehtonen struggled this season, Enroth could potentially steal the starting gig away from the inconsistent veteran. Enroth didn't have the best overall season, but his red-hot finish could be a sign of a good things to come.
  • Stars To Close Season With Enroth In Net

    News: Jhonas Enroth will be in the crease for Saturday's season finale against the Predators, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
    Analysis: With the Stars eliminated from the playoffs, Jhonas Enroth has usurped Kari Lehtonen as the team's No. 1 starter, a decision likely made by the organization to determine if Enroth is worth re-signing when he becomes a free agent this offseason. Though Enroth's overall numbers with the Stars (4-5-0, 2.53 GAA, .901 save percentage) aren't impressive, he's really come on strong of late, winning three consecutive starts while allowing just four goals on 79 shots (.949 save percentage). Since he'll be facing off against a playoff team in Nashville that seemingly doesn't have much to play for, Enroth might make for a sneakily effective daily option for the Saturday slate.
  • Nice 19-Save Shutout For Stars' Enroth

    News: Jhonas Enroth stopped all 19 shots in a 4-0 shutout over the Ducks on Wednesday.
    Analysis: That's the third straight win for Jhonas Enroth, who has started the last five games for Dallas. They've been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs for a while now, giving coach Lindy Ruff a chance to rest starter Kari Lehtonen, who has appeared in a whopping 65 games this season. Enroth is now 17-26-2 with a 3.12 GAA and .903 save percentage with Buffalo and Dallas this year.
  • Stars' Enroth To Earn Starting Nod Wednesday

    News: Jhonas Enroth was the first goalie off the ice at the Stars' morning skate and is on track to receive the start in net Wednesday against the Ducks, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
    Analysis: The Stars will stick with Jhonas Enroth for a third straight game after he was able to claim wins over the Predators and Sharks in his last two turns. Enroth is due to become an unrestricted free agent in this summer, so his run of regular duty as the season winds down could effectively serve as an audition for a gig with another club in 2015-16. The Stars have Kari Lehtonen on the books through the summer of 2018 at a $5.9 million cap hit, so for better or worse, it appears the team is committed to him rather than Enroth as its long-term solution in goal.
  • Second Straight Win For Stars' Enroth

    News: Jhonas Enroth made 23 of 24 saves in a 5-1 win over the Sharks on Monday.
    Analysis: He got the better of Nashville two nights prior in a 33-save victory as well, so the former Sabre has been doing his part to finish this season on a high note. In seven starts and 11 appearances with Dallas this season, Jhonas Enroth is 3-5-0 with a 2.83 GAA and .892 save percentage, numbers that won't do much to unseat Kari Lehtonen as the starter in Big D.
  • Stars Set To Go With Enroth On Monday

    News: Jhonas Enroth was the first goalie off the ice at the Stars' morning skate and is thus in line to start Monday against the Sharks, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
    Analysis: The Stars will stick with Jhonas Enroth after he stopped 33 of 36 shots in Saturday's overtime win over the Preds. While the team is technically still in the playoff hunt, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in order to have a shot to qualify for the postseason, the Stars need to win their last three games, while Winnipeg and Los Angeles would have to both lose four straight contests to close out their slates.
  • Stars' Enroth Stops 33 Shots In OT Win

    News: Jhonas Enroth stopped 33 of 36 shots in Saturday's overtime win over Nashville.
    Analysis: A great performance from Jhonas Enroth, who was starting in place of a struggling Kari Lehtonen. With the Stars basically out of playoff contention, the 26-year-old, who owns a .900 save percentage and 3.23 GAA, could see a few starts before the close of the regular season.
