News: Pavelec gave up four goals on 27 shots and blew a third-period lead in Thursday's loss to the Red Wings. Impact: That's four straight losses for the Jets in games Pavelec has started, though the Czech minder received a decision in just three of those. While he was good in those first two losses, he's been pretty rough over the last two, having been pulled in the first period against Minnesota on Tuesday before Thursday's four-goal performance.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will man the net Thursday against the Red Wings, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: After being pulled early his last time out Sunday against the Wild, Pavelec was bypassed for Tuesday's starting nod, as backup Michael Hutchinson made the turn in the 3-1 victory over the Hurricanes. Pavelec is still enjoying a stellar season in the net for the Jets with a 7-6-2 record and .923 save percentage, but Hutchinson has muddled the team's goalie situation a bit by playing well when called upon. His presence may require Pavelec to turn in a quality outing against the Red Wings to prevent a timeshare in the net from emerging.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will start in net against the Wild on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Pavelec will receive the start on back-to-back days rather than turning to Michael Hutchinson on Sunday. He saved 27 of the 29 shots he faced Saturday, but took a loss. The 27-year-old now boasts a 7-6-1 record with a .928 save percentage and 1.99 GAA.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec allowed three goals on just 11 shots before being replaced at the first intermission of Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss against the Wild. Impact: Pavelec was at least spared the loss, as the Jets completed a late rally to force overtime, but that's the only positive result of this outing. Still, Pavelec has been very solid this season and can chalk Sunday's performance up to starting on consecutive days.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec stopped all but two of the 29 shots he faced in Saturday's loss to Nashville. Impact: Although Pavelec has given up only two goals in each of his last two starts, the 27-year-old has now lost two straight games. Don't panic, though, as Pavelec has been outstanding lately, posting a .928 save percentage and 1.99 GAA on the season. Wins are hard to come by on the Jets, but considering Pavelec starts almost every game, he is proving to be a reliable fantasy option this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will start in net Saturday against the Predators, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Pavelec allowed two goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, ultimately receiving a loss despite the performance. He will get the start again Sunday, and will face a Predators squad averaging 2.50 G/GP.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec stopped 24 of 26 shots Tuesday, but was stuck with a 3-0 loss at the hands of Carey Price and the Canadiens. Impact: If the Jets' offense were a little better, Pavelec would be one of the best goalies in fantasy right now, but the team isn't even averaging two goals per game. However, unlike in past years, the Czech minder has been able to post strong rate stats even in losing efforts. He's posted a .914 save mark or better in six consecutive games, though he's just 3-1-2 in that span.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec will be in the crease Tuesday against the Canadiens, Patrick Friolet of RDS reports. Impact: The sizzling Pavelec will make his fourth straight start in goal for the Jets, after he was able to lower his season GAA to 1.98 following his 37-save effort in a 2-1 shootout win over the Senators on Saturday. The 27-year-old netminder owns a 4-8-1 record and .899 save percentage over 13 career games against the Canadiens.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec has played some of the best hockey of his NHL career to start the 2014-15 season, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The veteran goaltender has appeared in 14 of 15 games and is 7-4-1 with a 1.98 GAA and a .928 save percentage. Impact: The Jets seem to have discovered their team identity, something the organization has struggled with since returning to Winnipeg in 2011. The team has found success playing a rough-and-tumble brand of hockey. As a result, their defense has been greatly improved, and their goaltenders have reaped the benefits between the pipes. However, Pavelec has also noticeably tweaked his mechanics. Wiebe noted that Pavelec has been playing deeper in his net, doing a better job of controlling rebounds, and letting the play come to him. It's working, as he has been one of the better goaltenders thus far this season. Fantasy owners who rolled the dice on Pavelec on draft day may have very well rostered a diamond in the rough.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec stopped 37 shots in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win in Ottawa. Impact: Pavelec's last seven starts have produced a 5-0-2 record, 1.36 goals-against average and .952 save percentage.(STATS, 4:52pm)
Sat. Nov 8, 2014
News: Pavelec's impressive November continued Saturday with a 37-save, 2-1 shootout win over Ottawa. Impact: He actually turned away all comers in the shootout, so this really was a remarkable turn between the pipes. He's a solid play right now.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 8, 2014
News: Pavelec was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will receive the start in goal Saturday against the Senators, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Pavelec is coming off a tough shootout loss to the Penguins but has been superb nonetheless to kick off November, going 2-0-1 with a .959 save percentage. He'll match up against Ottawa's Craig Anderson in a tilt between two of the NHL's more surprising goalie performers this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Pavelec stopped 32 of 35, but gave up two shootout goals to take the loss Thursday against the Penguins. Impact: Sure, it's a loss, but the Czech netminder can largely feel good about this game, as he held Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin off the scoresheet in regulation; unfortunately, the Pens' two superstars both got revenge by scoring on him in the shootout. Pavelec remains without a regulation loss in his last six games (4-0-2).(RotoWire, )
Sun. Nov 2, 2014
News: Pavelec made 38 saves in a 1-0 shootout win Saturday against the New York Rangers. Impact: Pavelec's last six starts have produced a 4-1-1 record and 1.70 goals-against average.(STATS, 5:09pm)
