by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hofer was called up from AHL Utica on Wednesday.

Hofer will likely sit on the Blues' taxi squad heading into the postseason and shouldn't be expected to see any action. In 10 games with AHL Utica this year, the 20-year-old netminder went 4-6-0 with a .898 save percentage and 3.33 GAA and will likely spend the bulk of the upcoming 2021-22 campaign in the minors.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He didn't factor in on any scoring, but still had an active night in terms of hits and shots on goal. Ovechkin had 24 goals and 42 points in 45 regular-season contests but takes a three-game point drought into the playoffs.

Vanecek got the nod in the regular-season finale and, playing behind a depleted Washington lineup, allowed just a Curtis Lazar tap-in midway through the second period. It was an encouraging performance for Vanecek, who will likely draw the Game 1 starting assignment in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with Ilya Samsonov (COVID-19 protocols) on the shelf. The 25-year-old Vanecek finished his first NHL regular season with a 21-10-4 record to go with a 2.69 GAA and .908 save percentage.

The 33-year-old forward has earned 19 points (four on the power play), a plus-7 rating, 55 shots on net and 78 hits through 55 contests.

Swayman turned aside 30 of 32 shots in a 2-1 loss to Washington on Tuesday.

Swayman got tagged with the loss when Washington's Michael Raffl beat him from a difficult angle with two seconds left in the third period. The rookie was sharp otherwise, continuing a stellar run that began with his early April call-up. Boston coach Bruce Cassidy indicated that Swayman, and not veteran Jaroslav Halak, will back up Tuukka Rask when Boston opens the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Swayman is 7-3-0 with a 1.50 GAA and .945 save percentage.

Hellebuyck stopped 24 shots in a 5-0 win over the Canucks on Tuesday.

Hellebuyck missed Monday's game versus the Canucks with what he described as a "mild jam," Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. It didn't seem to bother Hellebuyck much Tuesday as he logged his fourth shutout of the season. The 27-year-old goalie improved to 23-17-3 with a 2.60 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 44 contests. The Jets' regular season ends Friday versus the Maple Leafs, but with no postseason seeding on the line, it's unclear if Hellebuyck will make the start or take additional time off for rest ahead of the playoffs.
