Date:

Antti Raanta will be between the pipes for Chicago on Tuesday against Arizona.

The backup netminder was shelled for four goals on 21 shots against Edmonton in his last outing, but he has been solid this season when called upon. Raanta owns a 6-3-0 record to go with a .934 save percentage and a 1.96 goals-against average. Corey Crawford will probably be back in Chicago's crease for Wednesday's road match versus Pittsburgh.
Jan 20 - 12:46 PM

Antti Raanta allowed five on just 21 shots in the Blackhawks' 5-2 to Oilers on Friday night.

The fifth goal was an empty-netter, but one could make a strong argument that the Blackhawks skaters hung Raanta out to dry more than once. Either way, it was by far the worst start of Raanta's season.
Jan 10 - 1:36 AM

Antti Raanta will start for Chicago in Edmonton on Friday night.

Through 27 career starts and 34 games, Raanta has been scored on just 78 times on nearly 900 shots. This gives him a career .911 save percentage and 2.44 GAA. Raanta stopped 18-20 shots in his one start against the Oilers in January of 2014. Expect good things if you start him.
Jan 9 - 7:40 PM

Antti Raanta made 31 saves in Sunday's 4-0 win over Toronto.

Raanta has now won five consecutive starts. The 25-year-old has started three of Chicago's last four games but that will change with Corey Crawford back in the fold for the Hawks. Raanta is 6-2-0 with a 1.76 goals-against-average and a .945 save percentage.

Antti Raanta wasn't exceptional Tuesday, but he was good enough to earn a 5-3 win over the Wild.

Rant allowed three goals on 29 shots in the victory, which is his fourth consecutive win. Both he and Scott Darling have performed admirably in the absence of starter Corey Crawford and the two netminders look to be sharing goaltending duties for the foreseeable future. Raanta's record in seven starts is a solid 5-2-0 while his GAA is 2.01 and his save percentage is a solid .938.

Tue, Dec 16, 2014 12:10:00 PM

Antti Raanta stopped 23 of 24 shots in Sunday's 2-1 win over Calgary.

Raanta now extends his personal winning streak to three games. The 25-year-old hasn't played very much this season, and there were rumblings that Scott Darling might overtake him for the backup job. Raanta is now 4-2-0 this season with a 1.85 goals-against-average and a .944 save percentage. Once Corey Crawford returns, it'll be interesting to see what the Blackhawks do with their backup goaltending situation.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 10:58:00 PM

Antti Raanta will start Sunday's game against Calgary.

The 25-year-old has a 3-2-0 record with a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .942 save percentage this season. Scott Darling started for the Blackhawks yesterday.

Antti Raanta made 38 saves on 41 shots in Friday's 4-3 win over Montreal.

Prior to these two starts, Raanta hadn't played since October 25th. He is 3-2-0 on the season with a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .942 save percentage.

Antti Raanta will be in goal for Chicago on Friday versus Montreal.

Goalie Antti Raanta, who hadn't played an NHL game since Oct. 25, was spectacular in the Chicago Blackhawks' 4-1 victory over the visiting St. Louis Blues Wednesday night.

Raanta's performance was welcomed with open arms by the Hawks, who found out earlier in the day that first-string goalie Corey Crawford will be out for three weeks with a lower-body injury. On Oct. 25, Raanta lost a 3-2 game to the Blues. Wednesday, however, he stopped 40 of the 41 shots he faced from the Blues. His goals-against average improved to 1.77 and his save percentage improved to .947. He's 2-2 on the season. If you have Crawford on your fantasy team and you need a fill-in, you might want to emulate the Hawks and use Raanta.

It will in fact be Antii Raanta in between the pipes for the Blackhawks Wednesday versus the Blues.

With the announcement that starting goaltender Corey Crawford will be sidelined for up to three weeks, Raanta is set to see more starts for the Hawks in the near future. Raanta's last NHL appearance was also against the St. Louis Blues, where he lost 3-2 at the Scottrade Center. Raanta has a 2.03 goals-against-average and .933 save percentage in three games this season.
