NHL Cap Hit: $74,148,261 Puckpedia Profile

Korpisalo will start Monday in Washington.

Korpisalo allowed three goals on 19 shots in the Blue Jackets' loss to the Rangers last Thursday. Since his four-game winning streak was snapped, Korpisalo has lost three of his last four games while posting a 2.80 GAA and .889 SV%. Things could get worse on Monday. The Capitals have won six in a row while scoring 4.00 goals per game, so Korpisalo is a low-end option to start the week.

Korpisalo will start Tuesday vs. the Coyotes.

Korpisalo allowed two goals on 31 shots in the Blue Jackets win over the Penguins on Friday. Elvis Merzlikins started Saturday, so Korpisalo comes into Tuesday's game playing great and well-rested. Korpisalo has won five of his last six starts while posting a 2.16 GAA, .920 SV% and one shutout. Tonight he takes on a Coyotes team that has lost four of their last six (2-2-2) while scoring just 2.33 goals per game.

The Blue Jackets have recalled Andrew Peeke from Cleveland (AHL).

Peeke, 21, was a second-round pick (No.34 overall) in 2016 and turned pro this year after three years at Notre Dame. The 6-foot-3, 198 lbs. defenseman has 12 points (5G / 7A) in 21 AHL games this year and could make his NHL debut with Zach Werenski out for at least one month.

Werenski will miss one month with a sprained AC joint.

Werenski left Saturday's game with a shoulder injury and the Blue Jackets announced on Sunday that he'll be out for at least four weeks. Werenski's injury leaves the Blue Jackets with six healthy defensemen, so look for them to call someone up from Cleveland (AHL) before Tuesday's game. Don't expect to see Werenski until late-December/early-January.
