  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Immediately extended by new team

    Husso agreed to a three-year, $14.25 million contract extension with the Red Wings on Friday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Just minutes after acquiring Husso from the Blues, the Red Wings bestowed a three-year extension upon their new goalie. Husso's $4.75 million AAV exceeds the $3 million AAV of Alex Nedeljkovic (lower body), who has just one year remaining on his deal in Detroit. If their contracts are any indication, Detroit expects Husso to lead the way in net in 2022-23, though Nedeljkovic will likely be more of a 1B option than a backup.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Traded to Red Wings

    Husso was traded by the Blues to the Red Wings on Friday in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.

    Husso outplayed Jordan Binnington (knee) during the 2021-22 regular season, but Binnington took back the starting job in the postseason while Husso struggled under the bright lights of the playoffs. Given that context and the substantial monetary commitment St. Louis has already made to Binnington, it made sense to move on from Husso. In Detroit, Husso will compete for playing time with Alex Nedeljkovic, who is currently recovering from a lower-body injury.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Gives up late goal to lose

    Husso allowed three goals on 39 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 6.

    Husso was steady in goal throughout the game, but he couldn't stop Darren Helm with 5.6 seconds left in the third period. That goal gave the Avalanche the win, ending the Blues' season in the second round. After Jordan Binnington (knee) went down in Game 3, Husso surrendered 16 tallies on 132 shots, losing three of his four appearances in the series. The 27-year-old established himself as an NHL-level goalie this year with a 25-7-6 record, a 2.56 GAA and a .919 save percentage in 40 regular-season outings, and he's set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Guarding cage Friday

    Husso will start against the Avalanche at home on Friday, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Husso has coughed up 13 goals on 93 shots in three games this series. He allowed four goals on 34 shots in Game 5 but picked up the overtime win to force Friday's Game 6. The 27-year-old is 2-4-0 with a 3.78 GAA and an .884 save percentage during the postseason.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Settles in for overtime win

    Husso allowed four goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche in Game 5.

    Husso allowed the first three goals of the game, and then another goal to Nathan MacKinnon late in the third period. The Blues erased both deficits before Tyler Bozak won the game 3:38 into overtime. Husso still hasn't been all that effective with 13 goals allowed in his last three games, but he did enough Wednesday to earn the Blues another game, which is set for Friday in St. Louis.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: In Goal for Game 5

    Husso will guard the road cage during Wednesday's Game 5 versus Colorado, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Husso wasn't great in Monday's Game 4 against the Avalanche, surrendering five goals on 36 shots en route to a 6-3 loss. The 27-year-old netminder will try to help the Blues stave off elimination by shooting for his second win of the playoffs.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Yields five goals in loss

    Husso allowed five goals on 36 shots in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche in Game 4. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.

    Husso handled the Avalanche's pressure well in the first period, but the strong performance unraveled after that. He's now lost his last four appearances, and the Blues can't afford another defeat -- they face elimination in Wednesday's Game 5 in Denver. Husso has yielded 18 goals across his five playoff outings.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: In goal Monday

    Husso will get the starting nod versus the Avalanche for Game 4 at home Monday.

    Husso stepped into Game 3 on Saturday in which he gave up four goals on 23 shots in a losing effort. With Jordan Binnington (knee) out for the remainder of the series, the 27-year-old Husso will carry the load for the Blues. During the regular season, the Finn went 25-7-6 with a 2.56 GAA and two shutouts before losing out on the starting job right before the playoffs.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Takes loss in relief

    Husso stopped 19 of 23 shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 3.

    Husso relieved Jordan Binnington (lower body) in the first period. Things fell apart for Husso in the second period, when he allowed a pair of goals, and his trek to the bench for an extra attacker in the third went awry, leading to the back-breaker. With Binnington's status in doubt for Monday's Game 4, Husso could be set to take over as the starter going forward. His appearance Saturday was his first since May 6.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Falters again in Game 3

    Husso stopped 28 of 32 shots in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Wild in Game 3.

    Husso turned in a second straight dud, and he's now allowed nine goals on 59 shots in a pair of losses. The 27-year-old's shaky play started when he allowed two goals in the opening 2:18, and the Blues weren't able to catch up after that. With a past Stanley Cup winner in Jordan Binnington available on the bench, it's possible the Blues make a change in goal for Sunday's Game 4 to spark the team, though no official decision has been made yet.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Starting third straight

    Per Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Husso was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll start between the pipes in Friday's Game 3 at home versus the Wild.

    Husso struggled in Wednesday's Game 2, surrendering five goals on just 27 shots en route to a 6-2 defeat. The 27-year-old netminder will try to shake off that lousy performance and help the Blues take a 2-1 series lead by shooting for his second win of the playoffs Friday.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Falters in Game 2

    Husso allowed five goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Wild.

    Husso couldn't match his stellar performance in Game 1 as the Blues fell to the Wild, evening the series at 1-1. Husso should be back in net Friday for Game 3 in St. Louis. The 26-year-old netminder was excellent during the regular season in posting a 25-7-6 record with a .919 save percentage.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Starting second straight

    Husso will patrol the road crease during Wednesday's Game 2 versus the Wild, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

    Husso was unbeatable in his first career playoff start in Monday's Game 1 against Minnesota, stopping all 37 shots he faced en route to an impressive 4-0 victory. He'll try to help the Blues return to St. Louis with a commanding 2-0 series lead by picking up a second straight win over the same Wild team Wednesday.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Records shutout in Game 1

    Husso stopped all 37 shots he faced en route to a 4-0 victory in Monday's Game 1 win over Minnesota.

    It wasn't abundantly clear who the Blues would roll with in goal prior to Monday's contest, but Husso got the nod and put on a show in his first career playoff game, presumably solidifying himself as St. Louis' No. 1 option in net going forward. Look for Husso to once again patrol the road crease in Wednesday's Game 2 against the Wild.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Set for Game 1 start

    Husso is projected to defend the cage versus the Wild on the road for Game 1 on Monday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

    Husso has been sharing the crease of late with Jordan Binnington, with Husso appearing in five of the Blues' last 11 contests. In those outings, the Finn went 3-1-1 with a 3.80 GAA, including his most recent start in which he gave up six goals on 44 shots. While Husso will get Game 1, he figures to be on a short leash and could be quickly replaced before Game 2 on Wednesday if he struggles.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Allows six goals in loss

    Husso stopped 38 of 44 shots in Friday's 7-4 loss to Vegas.

    Husso faced a barrage of Vegas shots in the loss, letting in a season-high six goals. Though it ends on a sour note, Husso had an excellent regular season by posting a 25-6-6 record with a .921 save percentage. Husso will likely be back in goal when the Blues take on the Wild in the first round of the playoffs.

  • Blues' Ville Husso: Leaves ice first

    Husso was the first goalie to get off the ice at Friday's game-day skate, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports, indicating he'll tend the twine at home against Vegas.

    Husso has appeared in just one of the Blues' last four contests in which he stopped 14 of 17 shots in a winning effort versus the Ducks. While Jordan Binnington has been playing more of late, the 27-year-old Husso is the more likely candidate to start Game 1 of the postseason for St. Louis. Still, it's Binnington, not Husso, whose name is etched on Lord Stanley's cup.
