Petr Mrazek has been sent to the minors.
The Red Wings initially ran with three goaltenders once Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson were healthy, but it's not surprising that they ultimately decided to return Mrazek to the AHL. There's still a chance that they'll trade Jonas Gustavsson, which would open the door for Mrazek to serve as the team's backup going forward, but Mrazek is still just 23 years old and might be better served by getting regular starts in the minors rather than watching Howard play in the NHL.

Petr Mrazek won't be going to the AHL just yet.

Although Mrazek is destined to be returned to Grand Rapids now that Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson are healthy again, the young netminder will back up Howard Saturday against the Jets with Gustavsson being a healthy scratch. Mrazek has a bright future after posting an 8-2 record while subbing in for Howard but barring more injuries he won't be much of a factor for the balance of this season.
Feb 14 - 10:25 AM

Although both Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson are healthy now, the Red Wings aren't committed to sending Petr Mrazek to the minors.

For now Detroit will carry three goaltenders. Mrazek will serve as Howard's backup on Saturday. It's hard to see having three goalies on the roster work out as it rarely does, so unless there's a trade or another injury, we expect Mrazek to eventually be sent to the minors.
Feb 13 - 12:39 PM

It was a poor night Wednesday for Detroit goaltender Petr Mrazek, who was replaced by Jimmy Howard after two periods of the Red Wings' 4-1 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh.

Mrazek allowed four goals on only 15 shots. His record still isn't bad, at 13-5-1. His goals-against average, however, shot up to 2.55 and his save percentage is now .909. Howard saved the only four shots he saw in the third period. Howard is the Wings' first-string goalie, of course, but he hadn't played since Jan. 10 because of a groin injury. Fantasy owners, take note. Look for Howard to be in most games the rest of the season, as long as he remains healthy.

Petr Mrazek will be in the crease on Wednesday versus Pittsburgh.

Jimmy Howard (groin) is ready to return and he'll be Mrazek's understudy. "We're trying to win all the games. This way, Howie is fully engaged in practice and bumped and getting knocked around," said coach Mike Babcock. "He'll have a good opportunity to prepare and probably have an opportunity to play on Saturday." When Howard is eased back into the lineup, Mrazek will probably be returned to the minors.
Feb 9 - 3:03 PM

Petr Mrazek made 22 saves in the Red Wings’ 3-1 win over the Coyotes on Saturday night.

The Red Wings started off slowly, then picked up the pace in the second and never looked back. Mrazek has been excellent with Jimmy Howard sidelined. He has a 2.42 goals-against average and .914 save percentage this year. Howard hopes to be back for the Red Wings’ next game, Feb. 11 against the Penguins, but Mrazek has proved to be a viable guy to rely upon.
Feb 7 - 11:15 PM

Petr Mrazek will get the start Saturday night against Phoenix.

He is coming off a 20-save shutout against Colorado Thursday night. This will be Mrazek's 10 consecutive start. It looks like Jonas Gustavsson will have to wait a little longer before getting the chance to return to NHL action. With Jimmy Howard set to return on February 11th and Gustavsson now healthy again, Mrazek could be headed to the AHL sometime early next week.
Feb 7 - 9:43 AM

Petr Mrazek blanked the Colorado Avalanche in a 28 save performance on Thursday night.

Mrazek was Detroit's backbone during the first period as they were out-shot 12-5, including multiple saves on the penalty kill. The Red Wings would slowly take over however, out-shooting their rival 24-16 through the final 40 minutes. With the win Mrazek improves to 12-4-0 with a shutout, .912 save percentage and a 2.50 GAA through 18 games this season.
Feb 6 - 1:16 AM

Petr Mrazek will get the nod for Detroit on Thursday at Colorado.

It will mark his ninth consecutive start since Jimmy Howard went down with a groin injury. Howard hopes to be back next week and Jonas Gustavsson will return to the Red Wings on Thursday, so Mrazek's turn as the starter appears to be close to being over.
Feb 4 - 10:21 AM

Petr Mrazek stopped 22 out of 23 shots as the Detroit Red Wings cruised against the New York Islanders on Saturday by a score of 4-1.

Mrazek has now won six of his last seven decisions (with one abbreviated appearance that did not result in a victory or defeat). Despite a modest .907 save percentage, he's now 11-4-1 on the season. He might see reduced reps soon with Jonas Gustavsson nearing health.
Jan 31 - 4:50 PM

As reported earlier, look for Petr Mrazek to get the start Saturday afternoon against the high-flying Islanders.

He is coming off a 5-1 loss to Tampa in which he allowed all five goals and made only 15 saves. Although we are certain Mrazek wants to make amends Saturday afternoon, that may prove to be difficult against the Islanders. The game starts at 2:00 pm in the afternoon, so if you are planning on starting Mrazek make sure he is in your lineup early. That said, we recommend you sit the young netminder Saturday if you have other options.
Jan 31 - 9:53 AM

Petr Mrazek will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Mrazek will get a chance to bounce back after allowing five goals on 15 shots on Thursday. With Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson, Mrazek has emerged as the Red Wings' de facto number one goaltender.
Jan 30 - 3:28 PM

Petr Mrazek was yanked after two periods of work on Thursday night where he allowed five goals on 15 shots.

It just wasn't the Czech's night as Cedric Pacquette scored a hat trick and everything seemed to trickle past the youngster. Mrazek has still been sharp though in net, with a 10-4-1 record, .904 save percentage and 2.77 goals against average.
Jan 30 - 1:21 AM

Petr Mrazek stopped 37 shots in a 5-4 win over Florida on Tuesday night.

"Pete was OK (early on) but then good in the end," coach Mike Babcock said. "Pete has a way about him. He wins games. Sometimes the goals he gives up, you wonder 'why did that go in' but he wins the game. And in the end, that's what matters, winning games." He has posted five wins in six starts for the Red Wings since Jimmy Howard went down to injury. Tom McCollum was victorious against Buffalo on Jan. 18 after Mrazek was pulled, but that's been his only hiccup since he took over the team's crease.
Jan 28 - 9:06 AM

Petr Mrazek will start against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Mrazek comes in with a 9-3-1 record on the year through 15 appearances with 32 goals against. Of his nine starts, he's allowed two or fewer goals six times. Plus one more two-goal 55-minute effort after replacing a pulled Jimmy Howard. Expect good things.
