Jonas Gustavsson suffered a separated left shoulder at the end of Wednesday's overtime loss to the Rangers.

Detroit Red Wings goalie Jonas Gustavvson stopped 26 of 30 New York shots before the Rangers scored in overtime to prevail 4-3.

Jonas Gustavsson will start for the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday.

Jimmy Howard is getting a game off after stopping 29 of 31 shots Tuesday night. Gustavsson has a 1.45 GAA and .935 save percentage in two games in 2014-15.
Nov 5 - 3:20 PM

Jonas Gustavsson yielded three goals on 16 shots in Detroit’s 4-2 loss to the Flyers on Saturday night.

A very lousy performance from the Red Wings’ backup netminder. Detroit owned this game, but Gustavsson let them down, giving up three goals from 18:21 of the second period to 11:05 of the third. The 30-year-old is a subpar backup in a league that now requires two able ones. He has a 1.45 goals-against average and .935 save percentage in two starts.

Jonas Gustavsson will get the start Saturday against the Flyers.

We reported on this Friday but just wanted to confirm it will be Gustavsson in net. Make sure you deactivate Jimmy Howard this weekend.
Oct 25 - 9:50 AM

Jonas Gustavsson is expected to start on Saturday.

Gustavsson earned a 30-save shutout in his first and so far only start of the season. He's a solid backup, but isn't a threat to take the starting gig from Jimmy Howard.

Jonas Gustavsson blanked the Maple Leafs in the Red Wings’ 1-0 overtime win Saturday night.

You cannot be a very successful team in this day and age of hockey without a capable backup, so this is a nice start for Gustavsson in his first action of the year. The shutout was Gustavsson's sixth of his career. The Wings will hope they get more than last season when he had a 2.63 goals-against average and .907 save percentage.

Jonas Gustavsson will get the chance to start against his former club, the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

Jimmy Howard backstopped the Wings to a 4-1 win over Toronto Friday night and will get the night off in a back-to-back game situation.
Oct 18 - 9:47 AM

Jonas Gustavsson will get his first start of the year on Saturday.

The Red Wings play a home-and-home with the Maple Leafs on Friday and Saturday, so Jimmy Howard will get the nod in Toronto on Friday.
Oct 16 - 5:04 PM

Jonas Gustavsson allowed five goals on 36 shots in Detroit’s 5-1 loss to Toronto on Friday.

The game was delayed because the Wings were stuck in Toronto traffic. With Detroit scrambling to get this game started, it isn’t a surprise that they struggled so badly tonight. Gustavsson will serve as Jimmy Howard’s backup this season and won’t carry much fantasy value unless Howard suffers an injury. Xavier Ouellet scored the only goal for Detroit.
Oct 3 - 10:52 PM

The big question surrounding Jonas Gustavsson going into the 2014-15 campaign is whether or not he can stay healthy.

Gustavsson has been plagued by groin injuries for the last couple of years, but he did feel good in the second half of the 2013-14 season. He'll start next season as Detroit's backup goaltender and should be fairly good in that role as long as he stays healthy.
Jul 28 - 9:38 AM

Jonas Gustavsson has reportedly signed a one-year, $1.85 million contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

Gustavsson had a 2.63 GAA and .907 save percentage in 27 games in 2013-14. He'll serve as the Red Wings backup netminder next season.
Jun 25 - 6:57 PM

Detroit GM Ken Holland told the Detroit Free Press on Thursday that "it appears we've agreed to a one-year deal" with Jonas Gustavsson.

His extension is expected to be worth around $1.5 million, which is what he made in his past two seasons with the Red Wings. Holland said the paperwork should be worked out within days. Detroit didn't want to give Gustavsson more than a one-year contract because they didn't want netminder Petr Mrazek sitting down in the minors for too long. Gustavsson will serve as Jimmy Howard's backup in 2014-15, while Mrazek gets another year to start plenty of games with Grand Rapids.
Jun 19 - 4:54 PM

Jonas Gustavsson could get a contract extension from the Red Wings in the near future.

"I've been talking to Gustavsson's agent," GM Ken Holland said. "He played good for us. We'd like to keep him." He posted a 16-5-4 record last season to go with a .907 save percentage and a 2.63 goals-against average. The Wings are comfortable with Gustavsson as their backup goalie, which will give Petr Mrazek another year to develop in the minors.
