    Shesterkin made 26 saves on 28 shots in a 3-2 win over the Flyers on Saturday.

    Shesterkin continued to shine Saturday, winning his fourth straight contest and improving his record to 17-4-2 this season in 23 appearances. The 26-year-old netminder has allowed five goals over those last four games, making at least 25 saves in each.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Defending cage Saturday

    Shesterkin will start between the pipes on the road Saturday against Philadelphia, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Shesterkin has posted a 16-4-2 record with a 1.99 GAA and a .939 save percentage over 22 appearances this season. Saturday will be the 26-year-old's second start since clearing COVID-19 protocols Thursday. He recently recorded a shutout, saving all 37 shots in a 3-0 win over San Jose on the same Thursday he cleared protocols. The Flyers have averaged 31.4 shots on goal and 3.19 goals per game alongside a 6-7-3 record at home this season.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Earns shutout in return

    Shesterkin posted a 37-save shutout in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Sharks.

    Shesterkin's return from the COVID-19 protocols was a triumphant one, as he stymied everything the Sharks threw at him. The 26-year-old is up to a career-best three shutouts this season, and he also matched his personal best for wins with 16 in just 22 appearances. The Russian netminder has added a 1.99 GAA and a .939 save percentage. Now that he's cleared the virus protocols, he should be a fairly regular presence between the pipes for the Rangers. Look for him to build off of Thursday's outing when the Rangers visit the Flyers on Saturday.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Returning versus Sharks

    Shesterkin will guard the road goal Thursday versus the Sharks, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Shesterkin cleared the COVID-19 protocols earlier Thursday and will immediately retake control of the Rangers' No. 1 goalie job. The Sharks have won their last three games, but Shesterkin remains a solid fantasy option every time he dons the mask.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Shesterkin has exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols ahead of Thursday's game against San Jose, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    Although Shesterkin's no longer in the league's virus protocols, at this point it isn't clear if he'll get the starting nod against the Sharks. If not, look for Alexandar Georgiev to make a fifth straight start Thursday night.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Lands in COVID-19 protocols

    Shesterkin was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday.

    Shesterkin will need to return two negative tests to be cleared from the protocols. Alexandar Georgiev will start Thursday versus the Golden Knights and will likely take over the No. 1 job temporarily while Shesterkin is out.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Blanks Bolts on Sunday

    Shesterkin turned aside 38 shots in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Lightning.

    It was a dazzling performance for the 26-year-old, who was making just his second appearance since Dec. 3 due to a lower-body injury prior to the league's Christmas shutdown. The shutout was Shesterkin's second of the season, and he's putting himself in the early Vezina conversation with a 15-4-2 record, 2.09 GAA and .936 save percentage.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: In net Sunday

    Shesterkin is the starting goalie Sunday versus Tampa Bay, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    The Lightning are a familiar opponent, as Shesterkin allowed three goals on 28 shots and defeated them in a shootout Friday. The 26-year-old enters Sunday's game with a 2.20 GAA and .932 save percentage through 20 games this season.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Picks up shootout win

    Shesterkin allowed three goals on 28 shots in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Lightning.

    Shesterkin has given up seven goals on 60 shots in his two games since returning from a lower-body injury, though he's split the results against the Panthers and the Lightning. The 26-year-old is up to 14-4-2 with a 2.20 GAA and a .932 save percentage through 20 games overall. Shesterkin may still be due for a little regression as he gets back into full fitness, but his workload will keep him as a quality option for fantasy managers throughout the year. A rematch with the Lightning on Sunday is next on the schedule.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: In net Friday

    Shesterkin will start in goal Friday versus Tampa Bay, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Shesterkin allowed four goals and took the loss Wednesday in Florida. Even so, he enters Friday's contest with a remarkable 2.16 GAA and .934 save percentage through 19 games this season.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Tending twine Wednesday

    Shesterkin will guard the road goal Wednesday versus the Panthers, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Shesterkin will make his first appearance since Dec. 3, in part due to a lower-body injury before postponements delayed his return. The 25-year-old is 7-2-1 with a 2.11 GAA and a .936 save percentage on the road this year, though the high-flying Panthers remain a formidable opponent.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Monday's game postponed

    Shesterkin and the Rangers will not play Detroit on Monday due to COVID-19 postponements.

    As of now, the Rangers' next scheduled game is Wednesday against the Panthers. Shesterkin hasn't played since Dec. 3 due to a lower-body issue but he should be good to go once the team is back in action.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Wednesday's game postponed

    Shesterkin and the Rangers won't play Wednesday versus the Canadiens after the NHL suspended cross-border travel through the holiday break.

    Shesterkin will probably appreciate the extra rest after being activated from injured reserve Saturday. He missed two weeks due to a lower-body injury. The Rangers' next game is scheduled for Dec. 27 versus the Red Wings.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Cleared of injury

    Shesterkin (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    The Russian netminder missed eight games with the injury but is now good to go. It's unclear if he'll start the team's next scheduled game against Montreal on Wednesday, though. Shesterkin still owns a five-game winning streak and won eight of his last nine games prior to the injury.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Not returning Sunday

    Shesterkin (lower body) won't be activated off injured reserve before Sunday's game against the Predators, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Shesterkin did take the ice for Sunday's morning skate and coach Gerard Gallant suggested the goalie is feeling good, so he figures to return sometime this week. The Rangers play three games in four days starting Tuesday and an activation during that stretch seems likely. Alexandar Georgiev and Keith Kinkaid will continue handling goalie duties until Shesterkin is back in action.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Not playing Friday

    Shesterkin (lower body) won't be activated from injured reserve to start Friday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    The Rangers' No. 1 goalie will miss his fourth game on IR as he nears his return from a lower-body injury. Shesterkin, who has a 2.05 GAA and .937 save percentage this season, appears fairly likely to gear up and play Sunday against Nashville.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Could return Friday

    Shesterkin (lower body) is scheduled to skate with the team Thursday in order to test out his injury, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Shesterkin had made seven straight appearances, in which he went 6-1-0 with a 1.32 GAA, prior to getting hurt. Once given the all-clear, the Russian netminder figures to reclaim his place as the No. 1 option between the pipes and will likely relegate Alexandar Georgiev to the backup role.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Lands on IR

    Shesterkin (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    The Rangers have yet to release an expected timetable for Shesterkin's return, but now that he's on injured reserve, he'll have to miss the Rangers' next three games at a minimum. Alexandar Georgiev and Adam Huska will carry the load in goal for New York until Shesterkin is ready to rock.

  • Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Avoids major injury

    Shesterkin's lower-body injury is "not as bad as it looks," Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    While this doesn't provide much information on his status for Saturday's tilt with Chicago, this is a good sign for Shesterkin and the Rangers overall. The 25-year-old will likely undergo further evaluation Saturday.
