Pavel Francouz blanks the Ducks on Wednesday

Pavel Francouz was the victorious goalie as he saved all 34 shots he faced as the Avalanche beat Anaheim 2-0.

Fantasy Impact

This is Francouz' second shut out through 35 NHL starts and was a big factor in a tight game with Anaheim. He was able to deny momentum to the Ducks, particularly on a Sam Steel breakaway that he turned away to which the Avalanche scored 2:18 after that. He's 5-1-0 with a 2.40 GAA and .922 save percentage. The way he's playing should lead to more starts in relief of Darcy Kuemper.

Pavel Francouz wins in relief for Avalanche

Pavel Francouz was the winning goalie as Colorado downed the Minnesota Wild 4-3 in a shootout on Monday. He stopped 24 of 26 of the shots he faced.

Fantasy Impact

Francouz performance was as solid as it could be. The two that got passed him were tough reads as Kirill Kaprizov launched a one-timer and collected a rebound for the pair. Francouz also saved all the shots in the shootout and has yet to be scored on in that OT format. He's worth a pickup based on Darcy Kuemper's status being unknown and because he's looking good. He's won four of his five starts.

Pavel Francouz plays well in relief

Pavel Francouz was called in to relieve Darcy Kuemper and was the winning goalie as Colorado defeated the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. He stopped 18 of the 19 shots he faced.

Fantasy Impact

Kuemper was pulled after 14:50 worth of ice time which was enough to see three goals go in. Coach Jared Bednar wasn't having it so gave Francouz the nod and he held down the fort. It's his first win of the year.
