Hellebuyck gave up three goals on 21 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Canadiens.
Hellebuyck wasn't at his best Thursday, but the Jets' offense made sure that wasn't a problem. Somewhat strangely, Hellebuyck has given up three or more goals in each of his last four outings. The 27-year-old improved to 9-5-1 with a 2.66 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 15 games this year. Fantasy managers have little option but to ride out Hellebuyck's struggles -- his heavy workload makes him a valuable player to roster. Another game versus the Canadiens is on tap for Saturday.
Hellebuyck will guard the home net in Thursday's game versus the Canadiens, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Hellebuyck has been outstanding in February with a .920 save percentage, but his 4-3-1 record is less appealing. The Canadiens are in flux right now, though, as they fired head coach Claude Julien after losing three straight. Nevertheless, the Habs still rank seventh in the league with 3.39 goals per game.
Hellebuyck gave up three goals on 34 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.
Hellebuyck couldn't quite hold on in the last minute of regulation as Elias Pettersson tied the game at 3-3 on the power play. Hellebuyck was bailed out by Pierre-Luc Dubois just 27 seconds into overtime. The 27-year-old goalie improved to 8-5-1 with a 2.64 GAA and a .916 save percentage through 14 games. The Jets are off until Thursday, when they host the Canadiens, which will likely see Hellebuyck draw another start.
Hellebuyck will defend the road net in Sunday's game against the Canucks, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
The Jets' defense has some serious weak spots, so Hellebuyck has been a bit inconsistent this year. Nevertheless, he's enjoyed a strong February, recording a .921 save percentage and a 3-3-1 record. The Canucks have a bevy of offensive playmakers, namely Quinn Hughes and Elias Petterson, but they rank 16th in the league with 2.90 goals per game.
Hellebuyck permitted three goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.
The Oilers struck twice 21 seconds apart in the first period, setting the Jets behind. Despite Hellebuyck's decent effort, the Jets couldn't find an equalizer. The Michigan native dropped to 7-5-1 with a 2.61 GAA and a .916 save percentage in 13 outings this year. Next up for Hellebuyck and the Jets is a two-game road trip in Vancouver on Friday and Sunday. He's made six straight starts, so there's an outside chance Laurent Brossoit could draw in for one of those road games.
Hellebuyck will defend the cage on the road against the Oilers on Wednesday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Hellebuyck will be making his sixth straight appearance after going 3-2-0 with a 2.41 GAA in his last five outings. The Michigan native should continue to see a heavy workload this season.
Hellebuyck surrendered five goals on 45 shots in Monday's 6-5 win over the Oilers.
Hellebuyck faced nearly twice as many shots as the Oilers' tandem of Mike Smith and Mikko Koskinen (45 to 24), so this result could have easily gone the other way. Sloppy ratios aside, Hellebuyck improved to 7-4-1 through 12 outings. His GAA rose to 2.58 while his save percentage slipped to .917 after the high-scoring outing. The Jets host the Oilers again Wednesday, and Hellebuyck will likely get the starting nod for a sixth straight game.
Hellebuyck will defend the cage versus Edmonton on Monday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Hellebuyck will be making his fifth straight appearance in goal having posted a 2-2-0 record and 1.76 GAA in his last four outings. In his lone matchup against the Oilers this year, the 27-year-old netminder gave up four goals on 26 shots but still managed to secure a win.
Hellebuyck stopped 27 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Senators.
It looked like the Jets were going to collect at least one point from the afternoon contest, as Hellebuyck provided his usual steady performance, until Brady Tkachuk tipped home a point shot with 8.2 seconds left on the clock and gave the netminder no chance to react to the change in direction. Hellebuyck still has a sharp 2.36 GAA and .921 save percentage through 11 games, numbers comparable to or even better than his Vezina-winning ratios from last season.
Hellebuyck will get the starting nod at home versus Ottawa on Saturday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Hellebuyck will be making his fourth consecutive appearance for the Jets, having gone 2-1-0 with a 1.68 GAA and .947 save percentage in his last three games. The Jets don't have any back-to-backs on their upcoming schedule, so it's not clear when Hellebuyck might get a night off in favor of Laurent Brossoit.
Hellebuyck stopped 41 of 42 shots in Thursday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.
Hellebuyck's 41 saves were a season high, although the outcome was never really in doubt in this one. The Jets provided their netminder with a 3-0 lead through 40 minutes, and only a Joshua Norris rebound goal midway through the third period kept Hellebuyck from his first shutout of the season. The 27-year-old is 6-3-1 on the season and takes a 2.39 GAA and .920 save percentage into Saturday's rematch with Ottawa.

Over his last six starts, Hellebuyck is 3-2-1 with a 2.81 GAA and an underwhelming .898 save percentage. However, a matchup with Ottawa's lethargic offense could be a good momentum boost for the 27-year-old. In two starts against the Senators this season, he allowed four goals on 50 shots and picked up a win in both contests.
Hellebuyck gave up three goals on 29 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Flames.
Hellebuyck and Jacob Markstrom did their parts in the creases to keep things close. The difference was an Elias Lindholm power-play goal on a rebound that beat Hellebuyck late in the third period. The 27-year-old goalie dropped to 5-3-1 with a 2.55 GAA and a .911 save percentage through nine starts. A tough defeat aside, Hellebuyck has been a steady workhorse this year. He may not play both of the Jets' upcoming games against the Senators on Thursday and Saturday, as that's a matchup that would be favorable for backup Laurent Brossoit.
Hellebuyck will start Tuesday's contest against Calgary.
Hellebuyck will look for win No. 6 on the season and try to build upon his .913 save percentage and 2.48 GAA. He should be plenty rested, as the Jets last played Thursday -- a 4-1 victory, also against Calgary. In terms of the netminder's opposition in this one, the Flames currently sit 16th in the league with 2.91 goals per game.
Hellebuyck stopped 23 of 24 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Flames.
Hellebuyck allowed the opening goal in the final minute of the first period, but it was a net-front deflection by Andrew Mangiapane. Over the final 40 minutes, Hellebuyck was perfect. The 27-year-old goalie improved to 5-2-1 with a 2.48 GAA and a .913 save percentage in eight appearances. The Jets are off until Tuesday, when they play one more game versus the Flames, this time on the road. It's likely Hellebuyck will get the nod for that one.

Hellebuyck hasn't been in peak form of late, as he is sporting a 3.20 GAA and .885 save percentage in his last four appearances, though he has still managed a 2-1-1 record. If Winnipeg is going to secure one of the four playoff spots in the North Division, it is going to need the 27-year-old netminder to regain his Vezina Trophy-winning form from last year.
Hellebuyck allowed three goals on 28 shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Flames on Monday.
Kyle Connor spotted Hellebuyck a 2-0 lead in the first period, but the goalie couldn't make it stand. Hellebuyck then allowed tallies to Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau in the shootout to complete the collapse. The 27-year-old Hellebuyck dropped to 4-2-1 with a 2.69 GAA and a .907 save percentage through seven starts. He's typically sat out the second half of back-to-back situations, so expect Laurent Brossoit in net for Tuesday's second of three straight games versus the Flames.
Hellebuyck will protect the home goal in Monday's game versus the Flames, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Compared to last year's phenomenal campaign, Hellebuyck has been a bit underwhelming, but he still sports a .910 save percentage and a 4-2-0 record to begin the new season.

Hellebuyck permitted three goals on 38 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Canucks on Saturday. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

He fell to 4-2-0 with a 2.67 GAA and a .910 save percentage across six starts this season. The 27-year-old goalie will turn his sights on the Flames, as they will meet in Winnipeg three times before a fourth game in Calgary. Expect Hellebuyck to get three starts in that span.

Hellebuyck wasn't great in his last start Tuesday against the Oilers, surrendering four goals on just 26 shots, but he was still able to pick up his fourth victory of the season thanks to six goals of support from his teammates. The 27-year-old backstop will attempt to secure a fourth straight win in a home matchup with a hot Canucks club that's won three straight games.
