New York Rangers

Shesterkin will start against the Stars on Tuesday.

Shesterkin was yanked after allowing five goals on 23 shots in the Rangers loss to the Devils on Saturday. It was a disastrous return to the crease for Shesterkin, who had his seven-game winning streak snapped in the process. Tonight he faces a Stars team that is on a five-game losing streak (0-3-2) while scoring just 1.40 goals per game.

Shesterkin (ribs) returns to the Rangers net on Saturday.

Shesterkin has missed the last six games with a rib injury he suffered in a car accident in late-February. Prior to getting hurt, Shesterkin won seven in a row while posting a 2.03 GAA and .945 SV%. The red-hot netminder will face the Devils for the second time this year--he was busy in the first meeting, stopping 46 of 49 shots in a 6-3 win.

Shesterkin will start Tuesday in Winnipeg.

Shesterkin stopped 42 of 43 shots in the Rangers win over the Kings on Monday. It was another outstanding outing from the rookie netminder, who is on a three-game winning streak while stopping 92 of the 98 shots (.939 SV%) that he has faced. Tonight he'll look to defeat a Jets team that is on a five-game point streak (4-0-1) while averaging 4.00 goals for and 2.00 goals against per game.

Shesterkin will start Wednesday vs. the Maple Leafs.

Shesterkin allowed two goals one 25 shots in the Rangers win over the Red Wings last Friday. Shesterkin has performed very well early in his NHL career, going 3-1-0 with a 2.51 GAA and .927 SV% in his first four starts. However, Wednesday will be his stiffest test yet. The Maple Leafs come in averaging the second-most goals with the third-best power-play since Christmas. With Michael Hutchinson in the other crease, Shesterkin is a good candidate for the win but will likely give up three or four goals.

Shesterkinn will make his NHL debut Tuesday vs. the Avalanche.

Shesterkin has been outstanding in the AHL this season, going 15-4-3 with a 1.93 GAA and .932 SV%, earning a shot at the NHL-level. Incredible numbers are becoming a trend for Shesterkin, who was 71-12-10 with a 1.49 GAA and .940 SV% in his last three years combined in the KHL. He will make his NHL debut against a Colorado team that played last night and have lost six of their last nine (3-5-1).

The Rangers have recalled Igor Shesterkin from Hartford (AHL).

Shesterkin is the Rangers' top goalie prospect and one of the best goalie prospects in the entire NHL. The 24-year-old was a fourth-round pick in 2014 and came over to North America this year. He has dominated at the AHL-level, going 15-4-3 with a 1.93 GAA and .932 SV% and deserves a look at the NHL-level. He had ridiculous numbers in the KHL over the last three seasons, never having a GAA over 1.69 and while posting a .940 SV% and winning 71 of 95 games.
