Ondrej Pavelec News
New York Rangers
Pavelec will start Saturday vs. the Devils.
Pavelec allowed three goals on 24 shots after replacing Henrik Lundqvist in the Rangers’ loss in Toronto last Saturday. Tonight he will make his first start as a Ranger and it will come against a Devils team who are coming off of their first loss last night. Pavelec will be a risky fantasy option whenever he’s between the pipes.
The Rangers have signed Ondrej Pavelec to a one-year deal worth $1.3M.
Pavelec has been with the Jets’ organization since he was drafted No.41 overall by the Atlanta Thrashers in 2005.

He ended up making it to Winnipeg and appeared in eight games, going 4-4-0 with a 3.55 GAA and .888 SV%. Despite a few rough seasons in a row, the Rangers have had a lot of success with backups over the years, making it possible the Pavelec could be a serviceable handcuff to Henrik Lundqvist in 2017-18.
