Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Night to forget in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin stopped 29 of 33 shots in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Islanders.

Shesterkin had no chance on the Islanders' first goal, but he then gave up a pair that he would like back to put his team in a 3-0 first-period hole. He tightened things up after that point, but the Rangers failed to generate any offense against the stout Islanders defense. This was an ugly opener in all facets of the game for the Rangers, but Shesterkin should benefit from more goal support moving forward, and he showed that he's capable of holding up his end of the bargain in last year's brief NHL action, going 10-2-0 with a 2.52 GAA and .932 save percentage.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Between pipes against Isles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin will tend the twine in Thursday's Opening Night matchup with the Islanders

Shesterkin impressed in limited action last year, as he went 10-2-0 with a 2.51 GAA in 12 games. With Henrik Lundqvist (heart) no longer with the team, Shesterkin figures to see the bulk of the workload this year backed up by Alexandar Georgiev. The 25-year-old Shesterkin's limited sample size could be a red flag for some fantasy players but he certainly could end up as a top-half netminder this year.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Loses postseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (undisclosed) allowed three goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 3.

Shesterkin's playoff debut was spoiled by the Hurricanes, who completed their series sweep over the Rangers. Despite the early postseason exit, Shesterkin figures to be the goalie of the future on Broadway. He posted a 10-2-0 record with a 2.52 GAA and a .932 save percentage in 12 starts during the regular season after his debut on Jan. 7 versus the Avalanche.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (undisclosed) will be in goal for Game 3 against the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Shesterkin will be making his first postseason appearance after missing the first two outings with an undisclosed injury. In 12 NHL games this season, the Russian netminder posted an impressive 10-2-0 record and .932 save percentage. If the Rangers can extend the series beyond Tuesday's contest, Shesterkin figures to carry the load the rest of the way with Henrik Lundqvist serving as the No. 2 option.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin remains unfit to play against Carolina on Monday despite earlier reporters he would be in goal, Jon Lane of reports.

Shesterkin was originally thought to be the netminder of record for Monday's contest; however, that appears to not be the case with the goaltender still unavailable. Henrik Lundqvist figures to be the starting netminder for the Rangers as long as Shesterkin is on the shelf.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: In goal Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (undisclosed) will get the starting nod against Carolina on Monday, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.

Shesterkin missed Game 1 due to an undisclosed problem but will retake the crease over Henrik Lundqvist. Prior to the league going on hiatus, the 23-year-old netminder went 10-2-0 with a 2.51 GAA in 12 appearances, which no doubt factored into the team's decision to go back to him now that he is fully fit.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Practices Sunday, uncertain Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (undisclosed) partook in Sunday's practice but it's unclear if he'll be available for Monday's Game 2 against Carolina, Dan Rosen of reports.

The young phenom was a surprise scratch ahead of Game 1 on Saturday, paving the way for veteran Henrik Lundqvist to start. It's probably wise to not bank on Shesterkin being available given the ambiguity surrounding his status and the fact that Game 2 has an early start time of noon ET. Expect further clarification during Monday's pregame warmup and likely not any sooner.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Labeled day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day, Dan Rosen of reports.

Shesterkin was expected to be in goal for Saturday's Game 1 against Carolina, but the Rangers revealed he was considered unfit to play as pregame warmups got underway, paving the way for Henrik Lundqvist to start between the pipes. Another update on the 24-year-old should surface prior to Monday's Game 2.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Unfit to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (undisclosed) has been deemed unfit to play in Saturday's Game 1 against the Hurricanes, The Athletic's Rick Carpiniello reports.

This news comes as a complete surprise, as Shesterkin was considered the front-runner to be in goal against Carolina after starting Wednesday's exhibition against the Islanders. At this point, it isn't clear how long the 24-year-old netminder will be sidelined, but Henrik Lundqvist will take over as New York's No. 1 netminder until Shesterkin is cleared to return.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Starting exhibition match
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin will get the start in goal and play the first half of Wednesday's exhibition game against the Islanders, Dan Rosen of reports.

Coach David Quinn has yet to name a starter for Saturday's Game 1 against the Hurricanes, but Shesterkin getting the nod for Wednesday's exhibition suggests he's currently the front-runner to enter the postseason as the Rangers' No. 1 netminder. The 24-year-old Russian was fantastic in limited action during the regular season, posting a 10-2-0 record while registering an impressive 2.51 GAA and .932 save percentage in 12 appearances.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Bounces back in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin stopped 31 of 33 shots Tuesday in a 4-2 win over Dallas.

Playing in just his second game since returning from a rib fracture, Shesterkin rebounded nicely from Saturday's performance in which he had given up a five-spot to New Jersey. The 24-year-old rookie had won seven straight appearances prior to his injury, so Tuesday's effort is an encouraging sign that he's recapturing that form.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Gets starting nod Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin will be between the pipes on the road versus Dallas on Tuesday.

Shesterkin will be back in the crease following a disastrous outing against New Jersey on Saturday in which he gave up five goals on 23 shots (.783 save percentage). After getting the hook, coach David Quinn will go right back to the Russian netminder in the hopes he'll put together a solid bounce-back performance.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Bad second period results in pull
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin was pulled Saturday after two periods. He allowed five goals on 23 New Jersey shots in a 6-4 loss.

It was his first start since Feb. 22 after missing six games with a rib fracture. Shesterkin was especially shaky in the second period. He allowed two goals a 52-second span at the start of the frame and then two more in a 25-second span later in that same period. Shesterkin has a bright future, but sometimes there will be games like this. Chalk it up to growing pains.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Back in net Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (ribs) will start Saturday's game against the Devils, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.

Shesterkin will remarkably man the crease less than two weeks after fracturing his rib in a car accident. While he'll likely be dealing with pain management, it has been determined that playing poses no further risk of exacerbating the injury. The rookie netminder was taking the league by storm prior to getting hurt, as Shesterkin's 9-1-0 with a 2.23 GAA and .940 save percentage to open his NHL career.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Could take cage Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin (ribs) looked good during Friday's practice session and could be an option to start Saturday's game against the Devils, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Shesterkin is certainly no guarantee to be between the pipes, but it sounds as though he has a real shot at it. Coach David Quinn labeled him the starter just prior to his multi-week absence, so the first-year netminder is likely eager to prove he deserves the designation.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Making good progress in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach David Quinn said Shesterkin (ribs) has been on the ice and could be back sooner than expected, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports. "He feels a lot better. He's been on the ice; he's taking some shots -- nothing high -- so he might be back sooner than we envisioned," Quinn said.

It's been a week since Shesterkin sustained a rib fracture during a car accident, and he was expected to miss at least two weeks. Quinn seemed to express optimism but admitted that the team will "monitor [this injury] daily." For the time being, Alexandar Georgiev and Henrik Lundqvist will handle the workload in the blue paint, but keep an eye on Shesterkin's progress going forward.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Injured in car accident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin suffered a rib fracture in a car accident Sunday night and will miss at least two weeks, Dan Rosen of reports.

Shesterkin's absence will help alleviate the netminding logjam in the Big Apple, as Alexandar Georgiev and Henrik Lundqvist figure to split the duties in the interim. Prior to getting hurt, the 23-year-old Shesterkin was riding a seven-game winning streak during which he has posted a 2.03 GAA and .945 save percentage. With the 23-man roster cap lifted, the Rangers don't need to place him on injured reserve unless they need the cap savings.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Makes franchise history
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin made 44 saves in a 3-2 win over the Sharks on Saturday.

He's 7-0-0 with a 2.03 GAA and .945 save percentage in his last seven starts. Shesterkin is the first goalie in Rangers history to win nine of his first 10 NHL games.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Starting against Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin will get the home nod against the Sharks on Saturday.

Shesterkin has already been named the No. 1 netminder by head coach David Quinn, and he reinforces the fact every time he touches the ice. The 24-year-old has won six straight games and produced a .943 save percentage in that stretch. Feel confident in Shesterkin for fantasy purposes, especially because the Sharks rank 26th with 2.37 goals per road contest.

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Notches sixth straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shesterkin made 27 saves in Friday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.

The rookie continues to roll. Shesterkin remains undefeated in February (5-0-0) and has won six straight starts overall, posting a 2.04 GAA and .943 save percentage over that stretch. The 24-year-old's hot streak has seen him seize the No. 1 job for the Rangers, and if he stays locked in he might just carry the team straight into the playoffs.
