The Jets' goaltending battle will be a three-way affair with Ondrej Pavelec attempting to fend off challengers Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson.
It would be great for the Jets and coach Paul Maurice if one of Pavelec, Hellebuyck and Hutchinson could establish himself and run with the starting job, but it is likely the Jets will at least start the campaign in a job-share situation. It remains to be seen who will share that job with Pavelec. Stay tuned. Sep 25 - 11:47 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will be joined by Tomas Kundratek and Michal Birnir in the grand stands for Saturday's match with Canada.

Pavelec, who has already been declared as the Czech Republic's third-string goalie, probably won't see much action. Kundratek and Birnir meanwhile ought to stay ready as short tournaments can result in big lineup changes, especially if the losses start piling up.

Ondrej Pavelec has already been declared as the Czech Republic's third goaltender.

The battle for the top job will be between Petr Mrazek and Michal Neuvirth. "The tournament is short and there is no time to let all three goalies play," coach Josef Jandac said. "We are planning to have only two goaltenders in the games and Ondrej Pavelec will be the third one." Pavelec said he "was aware of the situation" and he is "cool with it." He also understands that anything can happen and he could get an opportunity.

Ondrej Pavelec won't play in the World Championships for the Czech Republic.

A report on a Czech news website said that Pavelec didn't pass his end-of-season medical due to a knee problem, but the Jets denied part of that. Pavelec did pass his test, but was advised to rest his ailing knee over the summer because he will be participating in September's World Cup of Hockey.

Ondrej Pavelec ended his crummy season with a 4-3 shootout win over the Kings.

Apr 10 - 3:02 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will face the Kings on Saturday night, and not Michael Hutchinson who has the flu.

Pavelec has had the Kings' number this season, splitting two starts while turning aside 61 of 64 combined shots. Nothing like a hot goalie at the end of the week, and Pavelec has won his last two starts, three of his last five, and registered standings points each during the streak.
Apr 9 - 9:35 PM

Ondrej Pavelec was bailed out by his offensive during Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks.

Pavelec made 21 of 25 stops, including four of six on the kill. Well, a win is a win is a win as they say. But the Jets probably would've liked for Pavelec to have made a few more stops earlier. His record now stands at 12-13-4, with a chance to finish with an even record.
Apr 8 - 1:29 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will face San Jose on Thursday night.

Pavelec has gone 3-0-2 over his last five games with just 10 goals against, and five of them went to Chicago nearly a week ago. However for the season he's riding a .918 save percentage through 31 games, so we'd hedge our confidence.
Apr 7 - 8:55 PM

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 28 of 29 shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

The Jets have been terrible at home this season, but they managed to put together a solid performance in their final game of the season at the MTS Center. Pavelec has a 11-13-4 record with a 2.74 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage this season.
Apr 3 - 11:36 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal for the Winnipeg Jets when they take on the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.

Pavelec is 0-0-2 in his last two starts with a 3.81 GAA and a .864 save percentage. After posting strong numbers last season, Pavelec returned to his inconsistent ways again this season. He has lost his only start against the Wild this season, giving up four goals.
Apr 3 - 1:23 PM

Ondrej Pavelec just couldn't hang in overtime against Chicago.

Pavelec turned away just 22 of 27 shots, including five of six on special teams. As has often been the case, it's Winnipeg's goaltending that lets them down as they fell 5-4 in the extra frame. The loss drops his record to 10-13-5 on the season.
Apr 2 - 1:06 AM

The Winnipeg Jets are expected to start Ondrej Pavelec on Friday.

Apr 1 - 5:40 PM

Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec steered away 29 shots in the Jets' 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia Monday night.

His goals-against average is 2.72 and his save percentage, .907. He has been mediocre, just like the rest of the Jets.
