Elliott went 11-11-1 with a .907 save percentage, 2.96 save percentage and one shutout in 26 games during the 2018-19 season. This season was a frustrating one for the veteran goaltender. He was average at best during the first month, and then Elliott suffered a lower-body injury that kept him sidelined for three months. By that time, Elliott had to compete with rookie Carter Hart and Cam Talbot for playing time. Before 2018-19, Elliott hadn't played in so few games since the 2012-13 season. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and more than likely, Elliott will have to find a new home.
Elliott was pulled just 6:58 into Thursday's game after he allowed four goals on five shots, in what finished as a 7-3 loss to the Blues. Elliott couldn't stop a beach ball Thursday and wound up being replaced by Carter Hart less than seven minutes into the game. The veteran netminder has barely seen the net of late, with his last win coming back on March 11. As a result, Elliott should not be viewed as a viable fantasy option.
Elliott will start Thursday's game against the Blues in St. Louis, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. All three Flyers goalies will get a start to close out the year, with Elliott pegged for Thursday. The veteran netminder will close out his campaign against a Blues club in the middle of the pack in scoring (3.18 goals per game) at home, looking to end a mediocre campaign on a high note.
Elliott will start in Sunday's road game against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Elliott has been decent in his past five starts, accumulating a 3-2-0 record to go along with a .893 save percentage and 3.66 GAA. The Wisconsin product will have to be on his toes when he faces an offense that ranks fifth in goals per game this campaign (3.37).
Elliott stopped 44 of 51 shots in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Maple Leafs. Remarkably, the two teams weren't able to light the lamp at either end until after the 12-minute mark of the first period, but after that, all broke loose. The 51 shots were a season high for Elliott, topping the 48 he faced in an 8-2 loss to the Sharks on Oct. 9, and the rough outing leaves him with a 2.79 GAA and .912 save percentage on the campaign.
