|(12/31/15) 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.
