  • Red Wings' Jimmy Howard: Hangs on for overtime win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/22/18) Howard turned away 23 of 26 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime home win over the Bruins.

    Howard was on cruise control in Motor City through the first two periods, but the Bruins rallied back with two unanswered goals in the third frame to force overtime. Thanks in large part to Evgeny Svechnikov -- who delivered the game-winner -- Howard pulled through despite how he wasn't at his best Saturday.

    Red Wings' Jimmy Howard: Contributes to preseason overtime victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/18) Howard allowed one goal on 15 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Penguins. He shared the net with supposed third stringer Harri Sateri.

    Oddly enough, both of Detroit's goalies posted a .933 save percentage in this preseason contest. Howard struggled with injuries in 2016-17, but that was one of his best seasons to date, as he maintained a .927 save mark over 26 games. Last year, the venerable netminder made his way into a whopping 60 games -- that was the most he'd seen in seven years -- but his save percentage fell down to earth based on a .910 mark. Expect ratios that fall somewhere between those two extremes in 2018-19.

    Red Wings' Jimmy Howard: Starting Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/18) Howard will start between the pipes Wednesday against the Penguins, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

    Howard will split the contest with Harri Sateri, looking to tune up his game before the regular season rolls around. He's projected to play 50-plus contests in the crease for Detroit this season, with Jonathan Bernier expected to serve as the backup.

    Red Wings' Jimmy Howard: Projected for 50-plus games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/17/18) Despite the Red Wings having acquired Jonathan Bernier in free agency, Howard could still play in 50-plus games this season, MLive.com reports.

    Staying healthy will be key for Howard, as he will be playing for a new contract. The American backstop went 22-27-9 with a 2.85 GAA and .910 save percentage over 60 games last season. While that was his heaviest workload since the 2010-11 campaign, Howard's save percentage dipped from the career-high .927 mark he achieved in 2016-17. Bernier, on the other hand, has shown over the years that he's not quite starter material, but unquestionably a solid backup option, in case Howard sustains an injury or falters.

    Red Wings' Jimmy Howard: Stats normalized with heavier workload

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/18) Howard's finished with a 22-27-9 record, 2.85 GAA and .910 save percentage through 57 starts and 60 total appearances in 2017-18.

    In past years, there had been questions about whether Howard or Petr Mrazek deserved to be the No. 1 goalie in Motown, but the latter experienced a tumultuous 2016-17 campaign and ended up getting dealt to the playoff-clinching Flyers this season. Sure, Howie's peripherals were a far cry from his 2.10 and .927 save marks from the previous campaign, but he managed to stay healthy this year and those figures regressed closer to the mean. Howard has one year left on his contract valued at $5.291 million before he'll be an unrestricted free agent. Consider drafting him as a complementary goaltender to one of the league's elite at the shallow position.
