Stars' Scott Wedgewood: Staying in Dallas

Wedgewood signed a two-year, $2 million contract with the Stars on Thursday. Wedgewood played for three teams last season, ending the year with the Stars. He had a combined 13-15-6 record, a 3.14 GAA and a .910 save percentage when accounting for his time in New Jersey and Arizona. The 29-year-old should now have a firm grip on the backup goalie role behind Jake Oettinger, and this signing indicates Braden Holtby will be allowed to walk in free agency.

Wedgewood played well in his last start Monday versus the Senators, stopping 40 of 43 shots en route to a 5-3 victory.

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Gets starting nod Monday

Wedgewood will be between the pipes on the road versus Ottawa on Monday. Wedgewood is 4-2-0 with a 3.01 GAA and .923 save percentage in his last six outings but has given up four or more goals in each of his previous three contests. With the 29-year-old Wedgewood defending the cage Monday, Karel Vejmelka should be expected to start the second half of the team's back-to-back against Montreal on Tuesday.

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Tested heavily in road win

Wedgewood stopped 40 of 43 shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Senators. The Coyotes were outshot 43 to 15, but they were efficient on offense and Wedgewood played well in net. The 29-year-old has won his last three games despite allowing 12 goals in that span. For the season, Wedgewood is 10-13-3 with a 3.17 GAA and a .907 save percentage in 28 appearances. It'll likely be Karel Vejmelka in goal Tuesday against the Canadiens to finish off the back-to-back set.

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Makes Leafs fall in OT

Wedgewood made 34 saves in a 5-4 overtime win over the Maple Leafs on Thursday. The desert dawgs were up 4-1 heading into the third when the Leafs exploded with three goals in a 4:39 span, including two within 10 seconds. Auston Matthews cut to the net and put it past Wedgewood's outstretched right pad, followed by William Nylander's five-hole snipe on a partial breakaway. He took a deep breath and shook off the flurry to brick things up the rest of the way. Wedgewood is 3-1 in his last four starts and living the dream right now despite giving up 15 goals in that span. This is a mirage, just like the Coyotes' current four-game win streak.

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Bailed out by offense Saturday

Wedgewood stopped 41 shots in Saturday's 8-5 win over the Senators. Arizona handed the netminder a 4-0 lead midway through the second period, but Wedgewood squandered it and somehow allowed Ottawa to take a 5-4 lead less than two minutes into the third. Fortunately for him, Nick Schmaltz was just getting started on his way to a club-record seven-point performance. Wedgewood has alternated wins and losses while starting five of the last six games for the Coyotes, and on the season he carries a shaky 3.14 GAA and .909 save percentage.

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Receives start Saturday

Wedgewood will guard the cage Saturday against visiting Ottawa, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports. Wedgewood has gone 7-13-3 with a 3.07 GAA and .907 save percentage over 25 appearances this season. As visitors, the Senators have posted a weak 9-13-3 record alongside bottom-10 averages of 2.68 goals for and 27.6 shots on goal. Ottawa also holds the second-worst road power-play percentage with 12.2.

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Takes loss to Jets

Wedgewood surrendered four goals on 37 shots in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Winnipeg. Arizona took a 3-2 lead into the third period, but the Jets dominated the final frame, putting two pucks past Wedgewood before sealing the victory with an empty-netter. Wins have been hard to come by in Arizona, so Wedgewood's 7-11-2 record since joining the Coyotes is respectable in that context, and he's still won three of his last five, even after Sunday's loss.

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Gets starting nod

Coyotes' Scott Wedgewood: Posts career-high 43 saves

Wedgewood stopped 43 of 44 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Golden Knights. This was an outright impressive showing from the 29-year-old, who notched a career high for saves in one game. Wedgewood was able to limit the damage to a William Carrier tally in the second period. Wedgewood's won three of his last four appearances, and he's now at 7-12-3 with a 3.02 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 24 appearances. Given his usage lately, it appears he's challenging Karel Vejmelka for the No. 1 job in net, though the Coyotes' goaltending situation is likely to be a tandem for the rest of the season.
