  • Blue Jackets' Elvis Merzlikins: Struggles in brief appearance

    Merzlikins allowed two goals on two shots in a 7-4 win over Anaheim on Wednesday. Merzlikins entered the game late in the second period following an injury to Daniil Tarasov. The 29-year-old netminder would subsequently allow a pair of goals on the only two shots he faced in the final 3:55 of the frame before Tarasov returned to start the third. Tarasov was also credited with the win. It certainly wasn't the ideal outing for Merzlikins after he allowed five goals in a loss to the Kings on Tuesday. Overall, he's 10-12-7 on the season with a .900 save percentage and 3.33 GAA.

  • Blue Jackets' Elvis Merzlikins: Yields five goals in loss

    Merzlikins stopped 31 of 36 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Kings. Merzlikins didn't get much support Tuesday, and a pair of late goals in the third period made his line look worse than his performance. The 29-year-old has two wins over his last four outings, but he's given up 11 goals in that span. He's now at 10-12-7 with a 3.27 GAA and a .902 save percentage through 31 appearances. Merzlikins is still seeing a starting role over Daniil Tarasov, but the workload has been about the only positive from a fantasy perspective for Merz this season. It'll likely be Tarasov between the pipes Wednesday in Anaheim.

  • Blue Jackets' Elvis Merzlikins: Defeats Sharks

    Merzlikins stopped 28 of 31 shots in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Sharks. Merzlikins gave up two goals to Anthony Duclair and one to Fabian Zetterlund, but the Blue Jackets were able to steal a regulation win with Boone Jenner's tally late in the third period. This was Merzlikins' third win over his last four games, a span in which he's allowed nine goals. The 29-year-old is at 10-11-7 with a 3.21 GAA and a .904 save percentage through 30 appearances. The Blue Jackets will wrap up their road trip with a back-to-back versus the Kings on Tuesday and the Ducks on Wednesday, which likely means Merzlikins and Daniil Tarasov will split the next two starts.

For fantasy managers, the Columbus netminder is a match-up play at best.

  • Blue Jackets' Elvis Merzlikins: Facing Lightning

    Merzlikins will defend the home crease versus Tampa Bay on Saturday, per Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers. Merzlikins picked up his first shutout of the season in his last outing, stopping 21 shots in a 1-0 victory over St. Louis.

  • Blue Jackets' Elvis Merzlikins: Blanks St. Louis

    Merzlikins stopped 21 shots in a 1-0 shutout win over the Blues on Tuesday. It's the first shutout since 2021 for Merzlikins, who'd gone 0-2-1 while posting a rough .854 save percentage in his previous three outings. The 29-year-old netminder will carry a 9-10-7 record with a .903 save percentage and a 3.22 GAA into the All-Star break. Unless the Blue Jackets elect to move Merzlikins before the trade deadline, he'll likely continue splitting work with Daniil Tarasov in the second half.

    Merzlikins allowed four goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Oilers. Merzlikins put in a solid first two periods, but the Oilers got to him three times in the third to run away with the game. With just two wins over his last seven outings, Merzlikins is not a reliable option in most fantasy formats. He's at an 8-10-6 record with a 3.29 GAA and a .903 save percentage over 26 starts. The Blue Jackets' road trip continues Thursday in Calgary, while Merzlikins figures to continue competing with Daniil Tarasov for playing time.

  • Blue Jackets' Elvis Merzlikins: Falls to Devils

    Merzlikins turned aside 28 of 32 shots in a 4-1 loss to New Jersey on Friday. Merzlikins allowed all four goals on 13 shots in the second period. With this setback, he's fallen to 8-9-6 with a 3.26 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 25 appearances in 2023-24. Merzlikins was playing for his second straight game after making 27 saves in a 4-3 shootout win over Vancouver on Monday. However, the Blue Jackets are likely to go back to Daniil Tarasov for Tuesday's road game against Edmonton after this poor showing from Merzlikins.
