Pavelec has been good against the Coyotes, as he has a 6-2-1 record with a 2.04 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage against them in his career. The 28-year-old comes into this one win in his last four decisions.

Pavelec, who was called upon after the Jets used Michael Hutchinson in goal for their two previous games, improved his record to 5-6-1. His save percentage is .906 and his goals-against average, 2.81. Not exactly impressive numbers, but then the Jets (9-9-2) as a team have been struggling conspicuously. They won Wednesday for the first time since Nov. 5, after returning home from a stretch of eight of nine games on the road.

Ondrej Pavelec lost his third straight game on Thursday night as the Stars ploughed past Winnipeg 6-3.

Ondrej Pavelec will be back between the pipes for Winnipeg on Tuesday in Minnesota.

He turned aside 20 of 22 shots in a 3-0 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday in his last outing. Pavelec wasn't in goal when Winnipeg scored a 5-4 win over the Wild on Oct. 25.
Nov 10 - 5:28 PM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed two goals on 22 shots in the Jets' 3-0 loss to the Flyers Saturday night.

The loss snaps Pavelec's modest two-game winning streak. For the season, the 28-year-old netminder now has a 4-4-1 record with a 2.41 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage. Michael Hutchinson is breathing down Pavelec's neck for starts so the Czech goalie will have to pick it up if he wants to maintain his starting status.
Nov 7 - 10:19 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will get the start in goal against the Flyers Saturday night.

He is coming off a 24-save, 4-2 win over Toronto Wednesday night. On the season, Pavelec owns a 4-3-1 record with a 2.45 GAA and a .919 SP. He is in tough against Philly Saturday night, but we would start him none-the-less.
Nov 7 - 1:45 PM

Goalie Ondrej Pavelec made 24 saves in the Winnipeg Jets' 4-2 triumph over the Maple Leafs in Toronto Wednesday night.

Pavelec has won five consecutive games over the Leafs. On the season, he is now 4-3-1 overall, with a .919 save percentage and a 2.45 goals-against average. He's not a bad option for one-night fantasy players but, because he shares the Jets' goalie work with Michael Hutchinson, he's not an especially good pick for your fantasy league.
Nov 4 - 10:16 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will start Wednesday's game against Toronto.

That isn't surprising after Michael Hutchinson struggled Sunday against Montreal and was pulled. Pavelec has a 3-3-1 record with a .919 save percentage and a 2.51 goals-against this season. He's far from a safe bet, but the Maple Leafs have struggled to score goals this season.
Nov 4 - 2:19 PM

Ondrej Pavelec replaced Michael Hutchinson early on in the second period trailing 3-0 to Montreal.

Hutchinson stopped just five of nine shots through 23 minutes, all of them should have been stopped however.
Nov 1 - 9:23 PM

Ondrej Pavelec stood stall as he made 19 saves in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Columbus.

Pavelec made all four saves asked of him on the kill, and gave up a goal in garbage time off a filthy rip. All in all, this one ranks as one of Pavelec's best of the season. He's now 3-3-1 with 18 goals against in seven starts.
Nov 1 - 1:09 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will be in goal Saturday night against the Blue Jackets.

Michael Hutchinson was outstanding in a win against the Blackhawks Thursday night but Jets' coach Paul Maurice is going back to Pavelec for now. If Hutchinson continues to outplay Pavelec, a goalie change may be in the offing in Winnipeg.
