Ondrej Pavelec made 23 saves for Winnipeg, which topped Toronto on Saturday night 4-2.
Pavelec allowed both goals in an eight-shot first period and settled down for the rest of the game. The Jets have a lot invested in Pavelec, but outside of one season, he really hasn't proven he's a netminder you can count on every night. He has a 3.01 goals-against average and .901 save percentage this year. Apr 5 - 10:16 PM

Date:

Ondrej Pavelec will start for Winnipeg on Saturday.

It will be Pavelec's fifth straight game between the pipes. He has a 3.03 GAA and .901 save percentage in 56 contests this season.
Apr 5 - 12:24 PM

Ondrej Pavelec gave up four goals in the Jets' 4-2 loss to the Penguins on Thursday night.

Pavelec faced only 21 shots in the game, so clearly it wasn't a very good performance for the netminder. In reality, these types of efforts have been commonplace for Pavelec, who sports an unsightly 3.03 goals-against average and .901 save percentage, both of which rank in 44th in the NHL.
Apr 3 - 11:07 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will make his fourth straight start Thursday when the Jets play Pittsburgh.

He has a 1-1-1 record during that span and he's coming off a 2-1 shootout victory over Phoenix on Tuesday night.
Apr 3 - 3:40 PM

Ondrej Pavelec turned aside 28 of 29 shots in Winnipeg's 2-1 shootout win over Phoenix Tuesday night.

Pavelec also stopped all three Phoenix's shootout attempts and saw his record improve to a 21-25-7. He now has a 3.01 goals-against average and .902 save percentage.
Apr 2 - 3:24 AM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed five goals on 36 shots in Winnipeg's 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim Monday night.

It was Pavelec's second start after his injury and he has lost both of those games. He now has a 20-25-7 record with a 3.05 goals-against average and .901 save percentage. The Jets really need better goaltending from him.
Apr 1 - 3:04 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will get the nod for Winnipeg on Monday night.

There was some speculation that he may have re-injured his lower-body ailment, but it's Al Montoya who is dealing with a minor injury. If Montoya can't suit up as Pavelec's backup then Michael Hutchinson will dress instead.
Mar 31 - 4:37 PM

Coach Paul Maurice deflected the blame away from his goaltenders for Saturday's loss to Los Angeles.

Ondrej Pavelec was yanked after one period of work for surrendering three goals and 16 shots. "I understand how it looked in the first period, but I'm not putting this game on the goaltenders," Maurice said. "The goalies were as good as the rest of the hockey club. We're not saying we need some saves to get us going. Shame on us. It's a 20-man group. Can our goalies be better? Yes. But that first period wasn't a goalie issue. That puck dropped and (the Kings) came out flying. Regardless of how the puck crossed the line, it's on all of us." The Jets play Monday night in Anaheim and Tuesday at Phoenix, so there could be a split of the goaltending duties coming. Michael Hutchinson is also back up with the big club, which indicates Pavelec or Al Montoya may be dealing with an injury. It hasn't been announced who will start yet.
Mar 31 - 9:28 AM

Ondrej Pavelec lasted one period before getting pulled in the Jets' 4-2 loss to the Kings on Saturday night.

It's becoming pretty apparent that if the Jets want to take the next step, Pavelec isn't the guy they should count on between the pipes. He gave up three goals on 16 shots on Saturday, sinking his already-poor numbers to a 3.01 goals-against average and .902 save percentage. Al Montoya came on in relief, making 12 of 13 saves.
Mar 30 - 12:41 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will be back in goal when the Jets face off against the Kings in Los Angeles Saturday night.

The Jets' number one goalie has missed the team's last six games with a lower-body injury but he is now ready to return. If you are in need of goalie starts, you can turn to Pavelec if you have a gamblers' heart.
Mar 29 - 1:46 PM

Ondrej Pavelec (lower body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game.

Pavelec hasn't played since March 14. He might be back on Saturday.
Mar 26 - 5:43 PM

Jets' coach Paul Maurice is hopeful that Ondrej Pavelec (lower-body injury) will be back in the lineup Thursday against San Jose.

At least we now have a target date for his return. Check back with us next week for updates.
Mar 22 - 1:33 PM

Ondrej Pavelec (lower body) will not be able to return on Wednesday.

It will be Pavelec's third straight game on the sidelines. He has a 2.97 GAA and .902 save percentage in 52 contests in 2013-14.
Mar 19 - 3:22 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will miss at least the Jets' next two games with a lower-body injury.

Pavelec could be out longer than two games but that will depend on the progress he makes in his recovery. Al Montoya will start in Pavelec's place beginning Sunday night against Dallas. The Jets have recalled Michael Huthcinson from St. John's of the AHL to back up Montoya.
Mar 15 - 2:12 PM

Ondrej Pavelec left Friday's tilt with the Rangers after just one period and did not return.

The Jets are calling it a lower body injury and he will be reevaluated following the Jets' 4-2 loss to New York on Friday. Al Montoya took over as the Jets' tandem combined for four goals allowed on 23 shots.
