  • Red Wings' Petr Mrazek: Will not be starter at onset of new campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/25/17) Mrazek will remain in a backup role behind Jimmy Howard in the upcoming season, TSN reports.

    The Czech backstop was exposed to the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, but the nascent franchise pried away forward prospect Tomas Nosek instead. Mrazek must be excited for a clean slate after posting an 18-21-9 record, 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage while watching Howard -- who's eight years his elder -- turn in a career year. Of course, another threat to Mrazek's playing time is Jared Coreau, who is fresh off a Calder Cup win with AHL Grand Rapids. According to this latest report, Red Wings goalie coach Jeff Salajko suggested the team could give Howard up to 50-55 games in the upcoming season -- provided he stays healthy -- adding that he has "no problem with (Coreau) being the backup goalie." It appears that the onus is on Mrazek to have a stellar training camp, making this a situation worth monitoring ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

    Red Wings' Petr Mrazek: Getting ready for contract year

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/14/17) Mrazek has been working hard this offseason as he prepares for his contract year with the Red Wings.

    The Czech netminder -- who's set to be paid $4 million in the upcoming campaign -- is coming off his worst NHL season, as he turned in an 18-21-9 record with a 3.04 GAA, .901 save percentage and a lonely shutout. While the struggles were team-wide and the blame shouldn't rest squarely on Mrazek, GM Ken Holland and his coaching staff expect more maturity out of the 25-year-old. After all, previous reports indicated that Mrazek's poor attitude factored into the team's decision to expose him -- not veteran goalie Jimmy Howard -- in the expansion draft. Fully climbing out of the doghouse presumably would even the playing field in terms of Mrazek splitting the net with his elder.

    Red Wings' Petr Mrazek: Self-conduct contributed to Vegas exposure

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/19/17) Mrazek's alleged poor attitude factored into the team's decision to expose him to Vegas for the upcoming expansion draft, MLive.com reports.

    According to this latest report, Mrazek voiced his displeasure with Jimmy Howard remaining property of the Wings before agreeing to a two-year extension last summer, and the Czech goalie reportedly was "less than tactful" when he made his feelings known. Since there's a chance that Mrazek could end up getting passed over by Vegas, GM Ken Holland declined to say why he chose to protect 33-year-old Howard versus shielding the much younger and more affordable Mrazek from the Golden Knights. The fourth-year goalie entered the 2016-17 campaign as the starter, but he struggled in a major way, finishing with an 18-21-9 record, 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage. He did make 44 starts, though it's worth noting that a significant knee injury to Howard opened the door for more playing time than Mrazek may have deserved.

    Red Wings' Petr Mrazek: Goalie coach sticking around

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/17) Mrazek's goaltending coach, Jeff Salajko, had his contract renewed for another year, MLive.com reports.

    Mrazek has a rich history with Salajko, dating back to their days with AHL Grand Rapids (2013-15). The Czech goalie posted an 18-21-9 record, 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage with a single shutout this year, numbers that paled in comparison to his first campaign as a full-time netminder in 2015-16, when he worked in a 27-16-6 record, 2.33 GAA, .921 save percentage and four shutouts. Of course, the Red Wings had problems across the board this time around, and Mrazek could bounce right back if GM Ken Holland can just find a way to court a couple of two-way defensemen in free agency.

    Red Wings' Petr Mrazek: Will play in Worlds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/17) Mrazek said he'll play in the 2017 IIHF World Championship, representing the Czech Republic, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    With the Red Wings not involved in the postseason for the first time in 26 seasons, Mrazek will focus on another international tournament. The 25-year-old had an interesting season, getting wholly outplayed by veteran Jimmy Howard but still reeling in 44 starts and 50 games due to various injuries afflicting his elder. In that span, he went 18-21-9 with a 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage; if those numbers look underwhelming, well, it's because they are. However, some of the blame should be on upper management for depriving the blue line of experienced, two-way weapons. The athletic Mrazek should bounce back next year, but perhaps nothing would move the needle on his fantasy stock more than if Howard happens to move to the Las Vegas expansion team this summer.
