Look for Winnipeg to continue it's alternating goalie rotation.

That means that Ondrej Pavelec will get the start Sunday night against the Flyers. Michael Hutchinson has been outstanding as Pavelec's partner in the Jets' net but will get the night off after playing in Winnipeg's last game. As both Pavelec and Hutchinson are very capable NHL goalies we expect the job share to continue well into the new year before coach Paul Maurice settles on a single netminder.

Ondrej Pavelec had an easy time on Tuesday as he blocked 27 of 28 shots en route to a 5-1 victory over the Sabres.

With a much-improved supporting cast around him, Pavelec is experiencing his best NHL campaign to-date, but continues to fend off the surging Michael Hutchinson. His 10-8-4 record is complemented by a 2.26 GAA and a .916 save percentage.

Ondrej Pavelec will be between the pipes Tuesday night in Buffalo.

Ondrej Pavelec was only able to stop 23-26 shots Colorado sent his way in the 4-3 shootout loss on Thursday night.

Winnipeg led 3-1 nearly 13 minutes into the third period when Jarome Iginla ripped one past Pavelec to cut the deficit in half. Nearly five minutes later, it was tied as Ryan O'Reilly tipped-in a rebound. Unfortunately, Nathan MacKinnon and Matt Duchene put two past him in the shootout as well for the loss. Pavelec also took a tripping minor in the first period.
Dec 12 - 1:09 AM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed four goals on 25 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Anaheim.

Dec 7 - 6:06 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will start in Sunday's game against Anaheim.

Dec 3 - 11:53 PM

Ondrej Pavelec is expected to start Wednesday night.

Pavelec hasn't played since Nov. 26 in part due to the Jets' light schedule and also because backup Michael Hutchinson, who has been great this season, was given the nod on Friday. Pavelec has a 2.23 GAA and .919 save percentage in 20 games.
Dec 3 - 2:42 PM

Ondrej Pavelec made 19 saves on 20 shots in Winnipeg's 2-1 win over Buffalo.

The Jets' goaltender was only beat in the third period by Chris Stewart with the Jets up 2-0. Pavelec has been predictably been up and down this season but his numbers are respectable overall. The 27-year-old has a 2.23 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage this season. He has a record of 8-8-2.
Nov 26 - 9:43 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will be between the pipes Wednesday night in Buffalo.

The much-maligned Pavelec will get his 20th start of the season much to the distress of most Jets fans.
Nov 26 - 6:22 PM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed three goals on 28 shots in Winnipeg's 4-2 loss to St. Louis.

Pavelec has now lost four consecutive decisions. The 27-year-old has lived up to his inconsistent reputation this season. He's now 7-8-2 with a 2.29 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage. If he doesn't turn his play around, he may lose starts to backup Michael Hutchinson.
Nov 23 - 8:03 PM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed four goals on 27 shots, including the game winner with 4:50 left in the game, as the Jets fell 4-3 to Detroit on Thursday night.

Just when we thought Pavelec was turning a corner, he relapses and has now lost three straight, which does not include Sunday's awful outing against Minnesota where he was pulled and did not get the decision. His record now evens up at 7-7-2 and its anyone's guess as to what happens next.
Nov 20 - 11:03 PM

The Minnesota Wild chased Ondrej Pavelec from the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday after 19:53 (basically one period) of ice time.

Pavelec allowed three goals on 11 shots. To be fair, the Jets probably needed a jolt in general, as it took them until the second period to produce a single even-strength SOG. Michael Hutchinson took over for Pavelec.
Nov 16 - 6:19 PM

Ondrej Pavelec kicked away 27 shots in the Jets’ 2-1 loss to the Predators on Saturday night.

Even with the loss, Pavelec is making those who took a flier on him look like geniuses. It’s been eight games since he’s posted a sub-.900 save percentage. Because of his history, there is still major risk here, so it’s unlikely he’ll yield much in a trade in fantasy leagues. Enjoy it while it lasts. He’s got a 1.99 goals-against average and .928 save percentage.
