Petr Mrazek reported to Detroit training camp with a renewed attitude.
Mrazek is coming off a terrible season in which he ranked 36th in the NHL in both goals-against average (3.04) and save percentage (.901). However, the Czech netminder spent the off-season working on his positioning, a weakeness in his game last season. Mrazek also seems to have a new upbeat attitude and work ethic. He is entering the final year on his $4 million contract with Detroit and will need a good showing this campaign to get anywhere near that much on his next deal, wherever that may be. He will battle Jimmy Howard for starts. Sep 17 - 9:07 AM

Detroit goalie coach Jeff Salajko hopes that Petr Mrazek will show up for training camp "with a chip on his shoulder and something to prove."

Mrazek was exposed in the expansion draft, but Vegas didn't select him and he is still a member of the Red Wings. The 25-year-old netminder struggled last season, while losing the number one job to Jimmy Howard and even surrendering some starts to Jared Coreau. Mrazek didn't perform very well at the 2017 World Hockey Championship for the Czech Republic either. He has one more year left on his contract and he is expected to compete with Howard for starts in 2017-18.

Detroit GM Ken Holland has confirmed that he doesn't have any side deals in place with the Golden Knights, so Petr Mrazek will be available in the expansion draft.

As expected, Holland declined to comment on Detroit's protection list and he won't explain his reason for exposing Mrazek. "We had a tough year. We're trying to build our team," Holland said. "I'm not spending any future assets to hang onto players." Some pundits think that Vegas could take Mrazek and others believe that they could try to flip him to another team. It's rumored that Mrazek has fallen out of favor with the Red Wings because of performance and attitude, but it won't do them any good to discuss things like that because he could be back with the organization next year. If he isn't selected in the expansion draft then Detroit may look to trade him in the off-season.

The Red Wings' decision to expose Petr Mrazek in the expansion draft over Jimmy Howard just adds to the intrigue for the team going into the 2017-18 campaign.

Vegas might take Mrazek given the 25-year-old's potential, but he's coming off a down season where he posted a 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage in 50 games. He also comes with a $4 million cap hit, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Golden Knights look elsewhere for their goaltending needs. However, the Red Wings decision to expose Mrazek not only suggests that he's not the clear number one goaltender for 2017-18 - which isn't surprising given the season he had - but also that Detroit might not see him as its goaltender of the future anymore. If the Red Wings were convinced that Mrazek would be their best option in the long-term, then they would have probably protected him over the 33-year-old Jimmy Howard even if Howard was coming off a stronger campaign. As things stand though, Mrazek's future is somewhat murky. Mrazek can become a restricted free agent in the summer of 2017-18.

The Detroit Red Wings have to decide whether they will protect Petr Mrazek or Jimmy Howard in the upcoming expansion draft.

The Red Wings have been talking trade about one of their netminders. If this was last summer, it would have been a no-brainer as Mrazek was much the better goalkeeper in 2015-16 but he regressed a lot this past season with a 18-21-9 record to go with a 3.04 GAA and a .901 save percentage. Compare that with a 27-16-6 mark, a 2.33 GAA and a .921 save percentage in 15-16 and you can see why there is concern in Hockeytown. Howard was the better netminder last season but is seven years older than Mrazek and that could be the deciding factor.
Jun 4 - 7:11 AM

Petr Mrazek turned aside 27 of 30 shots in a 3-2 overtime defeat to Montreal on Saturday.

Mrazek has allowed three or more goals in each of his last four contests. Despite that unfavorable run, he actually has a 2-1-1 record over that span.
Apr 8 - 9:49 PM

Petr Mrazek will be in net against Montreal on Saturday.

Mrazek stopped 34 of 36 shots earlier this season against Montreal, though he suffered the defeat. It's worth noting however that the Canadiens will be without nearly all of their top players, including Carey Price, so Mrazek is in prime position to make a difference tonight.
Apr 8 - 12:49 PM

Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek kicked out 41 shots in regulation and overtime en route to the Red Wings' 5-4 shootout victory over the visiting Ottawa Senators Monday night.

Mrazek has been giving up too many goals this season but he was peppered with 45 shots by Ottawa Monday and gave up no goals in overtime or seven rounds of shootout action. He is now 18-21-8. His goals-against average is 3.05 and his save percentage is .901, not exactly numbers that would make you wish he were your fantasy goalie.
Apr 4 - 12:00 AM

Petr Mrazek will be in the crease for Detroit on Monday night versus Ottawa.

It's his turn in the goalie rotation and he will be looking to bounce back after surrendering five goals to Tampa Bay last Thursday. Mrazek has gone 3-0-2 against the Senators in his career with a 1.55 goals-against average and a .947 save percentage. That includes one win against them this season back on Oct. 17.
Apr 3 - 3:53 PM

Petr Mrazek stopped 26 of 31 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.

Mrazek hasn't been anywhere near the same type of goaltender we saw last year. The loss drops his record to 17-21-8 with a 3.03 goals against average and .901 save percentage. It will be interesting to see if the Red Wings choose to protect Mrazek or Howard this summer for the Vegas expansion draft.
Mar 30 - 10:43 PM

Petr Mrazek will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Mrazek and Jimmy Howard have been splitting the goaltending duties evenly lately. Mrazek has a 2.99 GAA and .902 save percentage in 47 contests this season.
Mar 30 - 12:54 PM

Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek made 39 saves in regulation and overtime before he and his Detroit teammates edged the Hurricanes 4-3 in overtime in Carolina Monday night.

Mrazek has a tough season but he was sharp on this night and improved his record to 17-20-8. His goals-against average stayed under 3.00, but barely at 2.99. His save percentage in 47 games this season is .902.
Mar 27 - 10:37 PM

Petr Mrazek will probably get the nod on Monday.

Mrazek and Jimmy Howard have been alternating, so it's Mrazek's turn in that rotation. Mrazek has a 16-20-8 record, 2.99 GAA, and .901 save percentage in 46 games this season.
Mar 27 - 11:54 AM

Petr Mrazek allowed two goals on 32 shots in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Wings held a 1-0 lead heading into the third period, but they let it slip away. Mrazek has given up just two goals in each of his last two games, but he has just one win in his last seven games. He'll enter his next start with a 16-20-8 record, a 2.99 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage.
Mar 24 - 11:10 PM

Petr Mrazek is expected to start Friday's game versus Tampa Bay.

It will be his turn in the goalie rotation, as he continues to share action with Jimmy Howard. Mrazek dropped a 2-1 decision to Buffalo on Monday in his last outing. He will enter Friday's match with 16 wins, a 3.01 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage over 45 appearances this year.
