Petr Mrazek defended 38 of 41 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to Team Europe on Monday afternoon.

The Czech Republic started Michal Neuvirth in their 6-0 loss to Canada to open the World Cup of Hockey, so it was Mrazek's turn in game two of the tournament. He kept the Czechs in the game, but was beaten on a breakaway goal by Leon Draisaitl during the extra session to give him the loss.

Chris Osgood doesn't see the upcoming goalie battle for the No. 1 spot between Petr Mrazek and Jimmy Howard as a bad thing.

"For one thing, you need two goalies now," Osgood said. "People underestimate that. It’s not like the old NHL where there’s 10 really good teams, 10 are mediocre, and 10 aren’t very good. Every game is difficult. Two, the schedule is going to be really tough this year because of the World Cup. You’re going to need two guys who can play a lot." Certainly there are benefits to having two potential No. 1s, but it can also lead to drama and a lot of second-guessing. From a fantasy perspective, it also muddies the waters if you're going to bet on one of the two netminders. In the case of the Red Wings though, we think the odds are in favor of Mrazek securing the top job.

Petr Mrazek stopped 24 shots in a 4-3 loss to Russia on Thursday in the Czech Republic's first pre-tournament game for the World Cup of Hockey.

Mrazek, who is competing for the top job with Philadelphia's Michal Neuvirth, played the full game.
Sep 8 - 5:33 PM

Petr Mrazek is eager to improve his consistency in 2016-17.

"I think every goaltender that is going through some bad games or a bad couple of weeks wants to take that off of his season and do the best job," Mrazek said. "You know, I'm going to try to do the best I can and try so those things don't happen to me anymore." He hopes to get as many starts as he can after he appeared in a career high 54 contests last season. Mrazek had some struggles late in the 2015-16 campaign, but he regained the top job from Jimmy Howard in the postseason and should enter the year as Detroit's number one netminder.
Jul 31 - 10:06 AM

Petr Mrazek has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Detroit.

His new deal carries an annual average value of $4 million. Mrazek will make $3.85 million in 2016-17 and $4.15 million in 2017-18. He posted a 27-16-6 record as the starting goaltender for the Red Wings last year, while earning a 2.33 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.
Jul 27 - 11:10 AM

Petr Mrazek is seeking $5 million per season through arbitration.

Detroit is reportedly offering $2.7 million and $3.15 million over a two-year deal. Mrazek was taken team-elected arbitration and his hearing is set for July 27. The 24-year-old netminder became the top option between the pipes for the Red Wings in 2015-16 and he is due for a big raise in salary.
Jul 25 - 9:46 AM

Petr Mrazek's hearing is scheduled for July 27.

Out of all the players going through the arbitration process right now, Mrazek is unique as he's the only example of team-elected arbitration in 2016. He had a 2.33 GAA and .921 save percentage in 54 contests last season. That should lead to him getting a big raise over last season's $737,500 salary.
Jul 11 - 4:52 PM

The Detroit Red Wings have decided to file for arbitration with Petr Mrazek.

In other words, if Detroit and Mrazek can't come to a mutual understanding, then an arbitrator will determine his value. Mrazek is likely to get a big raise over the $737,500 he earned in 2015-16. After all, he posted a 2.33 GAA and .921 save percentage in 54 games last season.
Jul 7 - 5:01 AM

Petr Mrazek's new contract will probably play a key role in sorting out Detroit's goaltending situation this summer.

The Red Wings expect to re-sign Mrazek, who is a restricted free agent, and trade Jimmy Howard. GM Ken Holland acknowledged after the season that moving Howard "might be good for the organization" because the team doesn't want around $10 million committed to goaltending.
May 30 - 8:56 AM

Petr Mrazek was perfect through 58 minutes of Game 5 on Thursday night, but a late Lightning goal sunk the Wings 1-0 and eliminated them from the 2016 playoffs.

Mrazek finished the game with 23 saves. On the game-winner, he misplayed a puck behind the net, sending it right to Ryan Callahan who made a perfect centring pass to Alex Killorn and fired home the winner while Mrazek was still unsettled. The 24-year-old still turned in a superb post-season performance, and should have the chance to play in many more playoff games down the road in Hockeytown.
Apr 21 - 10:10 PM

Petr Mrazek is expected to get the start in Game 4 against the Lightning.

Mrazek was in the starter's net during the morning skate earlier today. The Red Wings will look to stay alive in the series. The 24-year-old has 1.52 goals-against-average and a .939 save percentage this postseason.
Apr 21 - 6:11 PM

Petr Mrazek stopped 30 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 4.

All three of Tampa Bay's goals were scored on the power play. The Red Wings fought back from 2-0 down in the second period, but were unable to grab the lead at any point. They'll head back to Tampa Bay with their backs against the wall. If Detroit loses one more game, they'll be heading home. Mrazek has a 1-1 record with a 1.52 goals-against-average and a .939 save percentage this postseason.
Apr 19 - 10:26 PM

Petr Mrazek is expected to be between the pipes on Tuesday in Game 4 versus Tampa Bay.

He was in the starter's crease during the morning skate. Mrazek posted a 16-save shutout on Sunday against the Lightning in his series debut.
Apr 19 - 4:45 PM

Petr Mrazek stopped all 16 shots he faced in Detroit's 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 3.

The Wings were looking for a spark, so they decided to sit Jimmy Howard for Mrazek. The move paid off immediately, as Mrazek was able to blank the Bolts. Mrazek's 16 saves are the fewest made by a Red Wings goalie in a playoff shutout since Curtis Joseph faced 15 shots against Nashville in '04. Mrazek struggled mightily near the end of the regular season, but if he continues to play well the Wings could make some noise in the playoffs. He'll surely get the start in Game 4 on Tuesday night. The Red Wings still trail 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.
