Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy made 19 saves on the 20 Florida shots he faced but the one that got past him -- with 20.2 seconds left in regulation -- was enough to leave him with a loss to the Panthers Monday night.
Vasilevskiy's record is now 2-2-0. His goals-against average is 2.03 and his save percentage is .929, but he doesn't play enough to warrant fantasy consideration. Ben Bishop is the main man in net with the Lightning. Nov 16 - 11:21 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will be between the pipes Monday against Florida.

Ben Bishop allowed four goals in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Panthers on Saturday and Vasilevskiy hasn't played since he permitted three goals on 26 shots in a 4-1 loss to Buffalo on Nov. 10. The Lightning don't want Vasilevskiy to sit for long stretches and they want to give Bishop breaks as well, so the move isn't that surprising.
Nov 16 - 12:25 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Buffalo.

Tampa Bay's goaltenders have suffered fantasy-wise because of the team's lack of scoring. The Lightning have scored just 12 goals in their last nine games and have just two wins during that stretch. The loss was Vasilevskiy's first of the season. He now has a 2-1-0 record with a 2.37 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage.
Nov 11 - 12:08 AM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will get the nod against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

He made 30 stops in a 4-1 victory versus the Sabres on Nov. 5 in his last start. Vasilevskiy has a 2-0-0 record with a .939 save percentage and a 2.00 GAA since returning to the Lightning following vascular surgery.
Nov 10 - 11:52 AM

Andrei Vasilevskiy made 30 saves on Thursday night to lead the Bolts to a 4-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

The 21-year-old star improves to 2-0 this season with a .939 save percentage and 2.00 goals against average. The Russian is a good play in daily fantasy leagues the next time Ben Bishop gets a night off.
Nov 5 - 10:11 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Vasilevskiy made his season debut on Nov. 1 after missing time due to a blood clot. He turned aside 32 of 35 shots in a 4-3 win against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Nov 5 - 1:56 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy felt good after making his season debut Sunday, but feels he has plenty of improving to do.

"Not bad, but not perfect," he said. "I did a good job, made a couple of saves, not perfectly. Everything should be better (the next start) and keep working." Vasilevskiy turned aside 32 shots in a 4-3 win over Carolina.
Nov 2 - 10:13 AM

Andrei Vasilevskiy made his season debut for the Lightning, stopping 32 of 35 shots, in a 4-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Vasilevskiy missed a whole month of action and looked solid in goal for the Lightning. The former first round pick has plenty of upside but his fantasy output will be limited with Ben Bishop firmly in place as the Lightning starter. Vasilevskiy is someone to keep an eye on and would be a must add if Bishop were to get hurt.
Nov 1 - 7:37 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will make his 2015-16 debut in Sunday's game against Carolina.

Vasilevskiy completed his rehab assignment in the AHL after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot. The Lightning are hoping that he will give them a spark, which they badly need after an ugly month of October. The 21-year-old had a 7-5-1 record with a 2.36 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage last year.
Nov 1 - 3:54 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy has completed his conditioning stint and has been recalled by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The 21-year-old missed a whole month of NHL action because he had to remove a blood clot. Vasilevskiy stopped 56 of 58 shots in two rehab starts for Syracuse in the AHL. He will continue to serve as Ben Bishop's backup, but expect him to see more starts than a normal backup would.
Nov 1 - 12:42 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy made his first conditioning start in the AHL Wednesday night against the Toronto Marlies.

He stopped 29 of the 30 shots he faced in a 3-1 victory for the Syracuse Crunch. Vasilevskiy was seeing game action for the first time since he had surgery in early September to alleviate a pinched vein between his collarbone and top left rib. His first NHL start could come this Sunday at Carolina when the Lightning play the second game of a back-to-back situation.

Andrei Vasilevskiy (vascular surgery) has been sent to the minors on a conditioning stint.

Vasilevskiy started practicing on Monday. The decision to have him shake off the rust in the minors was anticipated given that he had surgery before the start of the preseason. Once he's healthy, he'll compete for ice time with Ben Bishop.
Oct 28 - 1:25 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy (vascular surgery) resumed practicing on Monday.

He faced shots for the first time since having surgery to remove a blood clot in his collarbone area. Vasilevskiy said he felt good during and after the skate and he feels that conditioning isn't an issue. When he's ready to play, he will probably still head down to the minors to get some game action.
Oct 26 - 4:17 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy (vascular surgery) is expected to join the Lightning for Monday's practice.

He is off his blood thinners now and can resume skating with his teammates. Vasilevskiy, who has been out since early September after he had surgery to remove a blood clot in his collarbone area, may need some conditioning in the minors when he is ready to return.
Oct 21 - 2:28 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy (vascular surgery) will be re-evaluated by doctors on Oct. 21.

If he gets the green light then he could be on his way to the AHL for a conditioning assignment before rejoining the Lightning. Tampa Bay still hasn't decided if Kristers Gudlevskis or Kevin Poulin will back up Ben Bishop when the regular season opens.
