  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Unavailable for season finale

    Tarasov (upper body) won't be in the lineup Tuesday against the Hurricanes, per Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site. Tarasov will miss his sixth straight contest. He will finish the 2023-24 season with a record of 8-11-3, a 3.18 GAA and a .908 save percentage over 24 appearances. Jet Greaves will be backed up by Elvis Merzlikins (lower body) in Tuesday's home game against Carolina.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Gets starting nod

    Tarasov will patrol the home crease versus the Islanders on Thursday, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports. Tarasov was fantastic in his last start Monday against the Avalanche, stopping 45 of 46 shots en route to an impressive 4-1 victory. He'll try to secure his ninth win of the season in a home matchup with an Isles squad that's 16-17-5 on the road this year.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Shines in victory

    Tarasov stopped 45 of 46 shots in Monday's 4-1 home win over the Avalanche. What a game for Tarasov. The 25-year-old netminder frustrated Colorado all game, kicking aside the first 34 shots sent his way until finally being beat for the only Avalanche goal partway through the third frame. Tarasov may not be producing many wins -- he had only three in the month of March -- but he has only had a save percentage under .900 once over eight games that same span. The Blue Jackets host the Islanders on Thursday.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Strong play not enough

    Tarasov made 33 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Penguins on Thursday. The Jackets netminder of the future played a strong game, but he was up against slim odds to win. The Blue Jackets are 0-10-5 in Pittsburgh since a 2-1 win Nov. 13, 2015. Yes, you read that right. Tarasov will be in the record books as the goalie who was in net when Evgeni Malkin hit the 20-goal mark for the 15th time in the NHL, and for being the twinetender in the game when Sidney Crosby reached 1,580 points which moved him into 11th in scoring in NHL history.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: In blue paint Thursday

    Tarasov will guard the cage for Thursday's road clash with Pittsburgh, Wes Crosby of reports. Tarasov has started three of the Jackets' last seven outings -- the team has decided to split the workload between the 25-year-old and Elvis Merzlikins. Looking ahead to next season, Tarasov could be in the mix for the No. 1 job, especially if the team honors Merzlikins' prior trade request. For now, Tarasov will likely get the nod in every other game down the stretch.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Kept busy in loss

    Tarasov stopped 43 of 47 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights. The only reason Tarasov didn't face over 50 shots was that the Golden Knights started slow. They made up for it over the final 40 minutes, giving the Blue Jackets little room to work with. Tarasov has allowed 14 goals over his last six appearances, going 2-2-1 in that span. For the season, the 24-year-old is at 7-10-3 with a 3.24 GAA and a .904 save percentage through 21 appearances. The Blue Jackets' road trip continues Tuesday in Arizona.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Tough OT loss in Detroit

    Tarasov turned aside 23 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Red Wings. Columbus jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period and were still leading 3-2 late in the third, but Lucas Raymond banged home a rebound with 13 seconds left in regulation to tie things up. Patrick Kane then snuck one short side on Tarasov early in OT. The 24-year-old Tarasov is still enjoying a strong start to March, going 3-1-1 in six outings with a 2.21 GAA and .937 save percentage -- a sharp contrast to Elvis Merzlikins' 4.10 GAA and .865 save percentage in four March appearances.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Stops 39 in win

    Tarasov turned aside 39 of 41 shots in a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Saturday. Tarasov's stellar play continued Saturday -- he's held opponents to three goals or fewer in each of his last eight outings, going 4-3-0 with a .942 save percentage in that span. The 24-year-old netminder has earned the starting job over Elvis Merzlikins in Columbus, as he's appeared in four of the Jackets' last five games. Overall, Tarasov improves to 7-9-2 with a .906 save percentage and a 3.16 GAA this season. Merzlikins should get the start Sunday in the second leg of a back-to-back, lining up Tarasov for a road matchup with the Red Wings on Tuesday.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Perfect in relief Tuesday

    Tarasov stopped all 19 shots he faced after replacing Elvis Merzlikins early in the first period of Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Canadiens. Merzlikins was credited with the defeat. Columbus looked like they'd stayed on the plane, coming out completely flat and hanging Merzlikins out to dry to begin the game. The Jackets' defensive effort picked up after Tarasov took over, but their offense never solved Cayden Primeau. The 24-year-old Tarasov appears to have taken a firm hold of the top job for the Blue Jackets, allowing three goals or less in seven straight outings while posting a 2.09 GAA and .941 save percentage.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Tough loss Saturday

    Tarasov stopped 47 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Predators. The 47 saves tied Tarasov's career high, but they weren't enough to get the Blue Jackets a win as Kevin Lankinen was also playing lights out in the other crease. The Columbus goaltender has given up three goals or less in six straight starts, going 3-3-0 over that stretch with a .935 save percentage. With nothing to play for but lottery positioning, the Blue Jackets may elect to see if the 24-year-old can handle the rigors of a starting workload down the stretch.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Starting Saturday

    Tarasov will defend the home crease versus Nashville on Saturday, according to Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers. Tarasov will make his second straight start following a 29-save performance in Thursday's 4-2 win over Edmonton. The red-hot Predators have gone 9-0-1 in 10 games going into Saturday's matchup, so Tarasov has another challenging opponent to face. He has a 6-8-2 record with a 3.48 GAA and an .894 save percentage this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Facing Oilers

    Tarasov will defend the home crease versus Edmonton on Thursday, per Aaron Portzline of The Athletic. Tarasov has been sharing the net with Elvis Merzlikins of late. Tarasov is 5-8-2 with a 3.58 GAA and an .891 save percentage in 15 appearances this season. He has a tough matchup against Connor McDavid and the Oilers, who have scored 214 goals in 60 games, sixth in the NHL.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Bounces back against Golden Knights

    Tarasov allowed three goals on 40 shots in Monday's 6-3 win against Vegas. Tarasov allowed a two-goal lead to dwindle away late in the first period, but he ultimately outplayed Adin Hill for the remainder of the game. Vegas fired a barrage of shots at him, including 16 in the third period alone, but Tarasov stood his ground for the win. This is only his fourth win in 11 outings since the start of January. Unless he demonstrates sustained improvement and the Blue Jackets find their defensive footing, he remains a risky option for most fantasy managers.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Sunk by Canes

    Tarasov turned aside 28 of 31 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Carolina, with the Hurricanes' final goal coming into an empty net. The 24-year-old netminder kept Carolina off the board in the first period, but once Teuvo Teravainen snuck a soft one past Tarasov just 53 seconds into the second period, things got away from Columbus. He's lost four of his last five starts, posting a 3.17 GAA and .901 save percentage over that stretch, and while the Jackets will keep him in the mix, Tarasov isn't putting much pressure on Elvis Merzlikins for the No. 1 job.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Takes tough loss Friday

    Tarasov stopped 35 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Sabres. The 24-year-old netminder made some huge saves early to keep the Blue Jackets from getting blown out but didn't get much offensive support. Tarasov eventually gave up the game-winner early in the third period on a Connor Clifton shot through a screen. Tarasov has looked good while starting back-to-back games, allowing four goals on 66 shots, and he could be making a push for Elvis Merzlikins' starting job.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Draws road start Wednesday

    Tarasov will protect the road goal versus the Ducks on Wednesday, Blue Jackets broadcaster Dylan Tyrer reports. Tarasov will get the second half of a back-to-back after Elvis Merzlikins was in net for Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Kings. The 24-year-old Tarasov has lost six of his last eight outings, allowing three or more goals in six of those games. The Ducks don't have much depth, but it'll still be a tough matchup for Tarasov behind what will likely be a tired team.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Gives up five goals in loss

    Tarasov stopped 24 of 29 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Jets. The sixth goal was an empty-netter. It was a night that Tarasov would like to forget -- he allowed goals on the power play, the penalty kill and at even strength. It would be easy to blame the team in front of him, but the Blue Jackets outshot the Senators 40-30, and the most shots he faced in a period was 10. Brady Tkachuk scored a hat trick for the home team, including his 25th of the season on the power play late in the second period. Tarasov finished with a paltry .828 save percentage, and made only 18 saves at even strength. In his seven starts since December, he was above a .900 save percentage only twice -- both times being wins for the Blue Jackets.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Stifles Flames

    Tarasov stopped 28 of 30 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Flames. The Flames rallied from behind twice in the first period, but Tarasov shut the door over the final 40 minutes. He snapped his personal three-game losing streak with the victory, his third in his last nine outings. Tarasov improved to 3-4-2 with a 3.86 GAA and an .881 save percentage through nine appearances this season. With Elvis Merzlikins struggling and Spencer Martin now in Carolina, Tarasov could have a chance to establish himself as the Blue Jackets' top goalie. Tarasov and Merzlikins will likely split the next two games, which see Columbus' road trip continue in Vancouver on Saturday and in Seattle on Sunday.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Back in net Thursday

    Tarasov will patrol the visiting crease in Calgary on Thursday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Tarasov has sat the last three games as Elvis Merzlikins was given a chance to regain his status as the No. 1 goaltender with the Blue Jackets. Tarasov has allowed 11 goals on 58 shots in his last two games, giving the 24-year-old a 2-4-2 record to go with a 4.08 GAA and an .875 save percentage. Tarasov will face a Flames team that has lost three straight games.

  • Blue Jackets' Daniil Tarasov: Half-dozen pucks slip by

    Tarasov allowed six goals on 35 shots in a 7-4 loss to the Kraken on Saturday. He's stepping into the starting role with a bit of a thud. Elvis Merzlikins is expected to be granted a chance of scenery, but that could take time - he wants to start, not backup, so the number of potential suitors is small. Tarasov is talented, but the Jackets are struggling. Dating back to Dec. 30, he's seen 35 or more shots in four of his last five starts. Tarasov is definitely a dynasty guy, but he faces way too much rubber behind a porous team to be a safe play in redraft leagues.
