News: Pavelec made 21 saves in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Carolina. Impact: Pavelec had dropped each of his previous three starts before bouncing back. He'll carry a 2.32 GAA into the next game.(STATS, 4:25pm)

News: Pavelec will get the starting nod Tuesday versus the Hurricanes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Pavelec's been the recipient of some poor offensive support by his mates to saddle him with a 1-3-0 record, but his 2.61 GAA and .906 save percentage through five games aren't world-beating, by any means. Just as was predicted heading into the season, Pavelec looks like one of the league's weakest starting netminders, though he should be a fine fantasy play Tuesday against Carolina, the NHL's only winless team.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec put a stop to 21 of 22 shots Tuesday in a 3-1 win over Carolina. Impact: He'd given up four goals in his last outing and lost three straight decisions, but Pavelec has actually been playing pretty well to open the season. He's appeared in six games and delivered very fine work in four of them. Of course, facing the winless Hurricanes is a cure for what ails nearly any goaltender right now.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec surrendered four goals on 29 shots for his third straight loss Sunday vs. Calgary. Impact: Pavelec hasn't necessarily been as bad as the losses indicate, but the team in front of him certainly has. Pavelec is a workhorse and the clear starter in Winnipeg, but don't expect much, as the Jets aren't good enough for the goalie to put up strong win totals.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will start in goal for the Jets on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Pavelec allowed two goals on 27 shots against the Predators on Sunday, leaving him with a 1-2 record to go with a .919 save percentage and 2.22 GAA. He will look to even up his record Sunday against the high-powered Ducks.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec surrendered two goals on 27 shots as the Jets fell to the Predators on Friday, 2-0. Impact: All things considered, it was a pretty good outing for Pavelec, but unfortunately, his offense couldn't put anything past opposing netminder Pekka Rinne. Even the goals that Pavelec allowed were mostly a product of bad luck, as both came on redirected shots that ended up finding the net.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will be between the pipes Friday against the Predators, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Pavelec has been steady in three appearances (two starts) for the Jets thus far, going 1-1-0 while saving 66 of 72 shot attempts (.917 save percentage). His mediocre career track record suggests his current level of play isn't sustainable, however, so there's strong odds his production declines from here. That being said, his standing as the team's No. 1 goalie doesn't appear to be in jeopardy, given backup Michael Hutchinson's immense struggles during the preseason and in his first start last weekend.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec stopped 17 of 18 shots in Sunday's loss to the Kings after coming on in relief of Michael Hutchinson. Impact: Pavelec was set to receive the evening off after he took a loss to the Sharks on Saturday. He only saved 23 of 26 shots in that defeat to San Jose, but was able to salvage his weekend with a strong showing against the Kings in his 37:55 of action. Pavelec's hold on the starting job looked a bit tenuous heading into training camp, but Hutchinson's rough preseason and subsequent struggles in his first game have enhanced Pavelec's job security.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will be the starting goaltender in Saturday's game against the Sharks, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Impact: Pavelec will be looking for his second consecutive win after giving up just two goals in a victory over the Coyotes in the Jets' season opener.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: Pavelec stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced in Thursday's victory over Arizona. Impact: Pavelec entered the preseason not assured of his No. 1 role between the pipes, but got off to a solid start in the season opener. The second goal he surrendered came with the Jets already owning a five-goal lead, so it wasn't a particularly high-leverage situation. He'll continue to get the bulk of the starts in net for Winnipeg going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will be between the pipes for Thursday's season opener against the Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: With a career 2.96 GAA and .906 save percentage over 288 outings, Pavelec has done little to suggest he's a capable No. 1 goalie, but his $3.9 million cap hit seems to give him more job security than he probably deserves. Backup Michael Hutchinson was expected to push Pavelec for No. 1 duties to begin the season, but Hutchinson's horrid preseason has likely ended those hopes for the time being. As a result, the Jets appear set to sink or swim again with Pavelec, with the former outcome representing a seemingly more realistic scenario.(RotoWire, )
