Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Season to forget

Grubauer ended 2021-22 with an 18-31-5 record, a 3.16 GAA and an .889 save percentage in 55 games. Grubauer went from Vezina candidate with the Avalanche in 2020-21 to one of the statistically worst starters in the league in 2021-22 despite playing a career high in games. That happened because backups Chris Driedger and Joey Daccord failed to do much better behind a porous Kraken defense. Grubauer's neither as bad as he was last season nor as good as the year before -- somewhere in the middle would shake out to about a 2.60 GAA and a .905 save percentage if he can get a little help from his teammates in the Kraken's second campaign.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Pulls off upset win

Grubauer stopped 26 of 28 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche. With their lineup weakened by the absence of Mikko Rantanen (illness), the Avalanche weren't able to generate offense as easily as usual. The Kraken spotted Grubauer a 3-0 lead, and he made it stand despite a late push. The 30-year-old improved to 18-29-5 with a 3.09 GAA and an .891 save percentage in 53 appearances. He's won three of his last four appearances, and he'll likely split the next two games -- Friday against the Wild and Saturday versus the Stars -- with Chris Driedger.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Facing Avalanche

Grubauer will defend the blue paint during Wednesday's home game versus Colorado, Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports. Grubauer wasn't great in his last start Saturday against New Jersey, surrendering three goals on just 26 shots, but he was still able to come away with a win thanks to solid goal support from his teammates. He'll try to secure his 18th victory of the year in a tough home matchup with an Avalanche squad that's averaging 3.54 goals per game on the road this season, fifth in the NHL.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Earns shootout win

Grubauer stopped 23 of 26 shots in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Devils. It was a close game throughout, but Grubauer was perfect in the shootout while Nico Daws allowed the only tally to Ryan Donato. The win was Grubauer's second in four appearances in April. The 30-year-old is up to 17-29-5 with a 3.11 GAA and an .891 save percentage through 52 appearances. He'll likely continue to split time with Chris Driedger over the last two weeks of the campaign.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: In goal against Devils

Grubauer will get the starting nod for Saturday's home clash with New Jersey, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports. Grubauer has started just three of the Kraken's last eight contests as Chris Driedger has been seeing a bigger share of the workload. Still, Grubauer should enter next season as the presumptive No. 1 despite posting a subpar 3.12 GAA this year. With 16 victories on the year, the 30-year-old German may be hard-pressed to get back over the 20-win mark after clearing that threshold for the first time last season.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: No game Wednesday

Grubauer and Seattle will not play Winnipeg on Wednesday after the NHL called off the game due to weather. Grubauer has seen more of the starts being split between himself and Chris Driedger of late, a trend that will likely continue into the final games of the season. Still, with the netminder having five seasons remaining on his six-year, $35.4 million contract, he figures to enter the 2022-23 campaign as the presumptive No. 1.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Gets little help in loss

Grubauer made 25 saves in a 4-1 loss to the Flames on Saturday. He allowed three goals. This loss can't be pinned on Grubauer -- his teammates just can't score. They have three goals in their past three games. Grubauer's game has picked up lately -- he's 4-4-0 with one shutout in his last eight starts. But he remains a risky play for fantasy managers.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: In goal Saturday

Grubauer is coming off of a shutout in his last start, as he made 29 saves versus the Blackhawks on Thursday. The 30-year-old has won four of his last seven appearances, but he'll likely have a tough task ahead of him Saturday against the Pacific Division-leading Flames, who enter the contest on a three-game winning streak.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Earns 20th career shutout

Grubauer posted a 29-save shutout in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks. Grubauer fended off the Blackhawks' push on offense over the final two periods, earning his second shutout of the season. This was also the second shutout for the German, who has had few highlights in a difficult campaign. He's at 16-28-5 with a 3.12 GAA and an .891 save percentage through 50 appearances. Chris Driedger had some momentum prior to this road back-to-back, but the Kraken's next two games are a home-and-home with the Flames -- neither goalie projects as a safe fantasy option against the Pacific Division leaders.

Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Starting in Chicago

Grubauer will start Thursday's road game versus the Blackhawks, Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times reports. Grubauer has sat out the last two games and four of the last five as Chris Driedger has carved into his playing time. Grubauer has gone 3-5-0 with a 3.26 GAA and an .891 save percentage since the start of March. If he can keep the Blackhawks' top line quiet, this is a fairly decent matchup.
