Francouz will start Wednesday in Chicago.

Francouz stopped 37 of 38 shots in Colorado's win over the Devils last Friday. Francouz has played extremely well as of late, winning five of his last six starts (5-0-1) while posting a 1.91 GAA and .944 SV%. The first of those six games came in Chicago, where he stopped 34 of 36 shots in a 5-2 victory--he'll look to replicate that tonight.

Francouz will start Thursday vs. the Devils.

Francouz allowed one goal on 33 shots in Colorado's win over the Flyers on Wednesday. Philipp Grubauer is available tonight but they will start Francouz for the fifth straight game. Francouz has won four of his last five starts (4-0-1) while posting an impressive 2.11 GAA and .937 SV%. He has settled into the NHL very nicely and is a terrific start against a New Jersey team that has lost six in a row.

Francouz will start Wednesday vs. the Flyers.

Francouz allowed five goals on 33 shots in Colorado's overtime loss to the Flames on Monday. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for Francouz, who will start again Wednesday with Philipp Grubauer still sidelined with a hamstring injury. The 29-year-old netminder is 3-1-1 with a 2.99 GAA and .901 SV% on home ice and gets the nod vs. a Flyers team without two of their top-6 wingers.

Francouz is in concussion protocol and is day-to-day.

Francouz was forced to leave Tuesday's game vs. the Jets after being run over by Mark Scheifele and the Avalanche confirmed that he is in concussion protocol. Head coach Jared Bednar said that Francouz is "feeling pretty good" and maybe "only be out another day or two." With both of their top two netminders out, Adam Werner will start in Edmonton.

Francouz allowed two goals on 41 shots in Colorado's win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday. Since taking over for the injured Philipp Grubauer, Francouz has won both of his games while stopping 59 of 65 shots (.908 SV%). He will look to keep rolling in Winnipeg against a Jets team that has gone 4-0-1 with 3.00 goals per game in their last five outings.

Francouz will start Saturday vs. the Blue Jackets.

Francouz allowed four goals on 24 shots in Colorado's win over the Predators on Thursday. With Philipp Grubauer still out, Francouz will start for the second straight game. He has allowed at least three goals in three straight starts, allowing a combined 11 goals on 78 shots (.859 SV%). His numbers aren't great but the Blue Jackets are average on the road--going 3-2-2 with 3.00 goals per game in seven games.

Francouz will start Thursday vs. the Predators.

Francouz allowed three goals on 28 shots in Colorado's loss in Arizona last Saturday. With Philipp Grubauer sidelined, Francouz should get a couple of starts this week, which makes him a worthwhile pickup for owners desperate for goalie starts. He has a .919 SV% in four appearances but the Predators come to town leading the NHL in goal-scoring (4.00 GF/gm).

Francouz led the Avalanche onto the ice for warmups.

Francouz gave up four goals on 26 shots in Colorado's loss to the Ducks last Saturday. Francouz has played very sparingly early in the season but has played well when called upon--2-1-0 with a 2.63 GAA and .926 SV%. Tonight he faces a Coyotes team that is 7-4-1 while averaging 2.83 goals per game (19th in the NHL).

Francouz will start Saturday in Tampa Bay.

Francouz made 34 saves on 36 shots in Colorado’s win over the Coyotes last Saturday. It was an impressive season debut for Francouz, who is now 1-2-0 with a 1.94 GAA and .944 SV% in his first three NHL appearances. The 29-year-old looks like a serviceable NHL backup and will make a good spot-start option some nights, but not tonight in Tampa Bay.

Francouz will start against the Coyotes on Saturday.

It will be the first start of Francouz's career, although he did make a pair of relief appearances last season, stopping 33 of the 35 shots he faced in those two games. He registered a 27-20-1 record with the AHL's Colorado Eagles last season, posting a 2.68 GAA and a .918 SV%. He's worth considering for a spot start against Arizona if you're desperate for goalie stats.
