Mar 23 - 10:37 AM

Jacob Markstrom stopped 26 of 27 shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

This is Markstrom's first win of the 2014-15 season. The 25-year-old was once regarded as one of the best goaltending prospects in the game when he was with Florida, but his stock has fallen significantly. Markstrom has posted some good numbers in the AHL, but he has struggled to find his game in the NHL. He is still young enough that he can develop into the goaltender many expected him to be, but that doesn't seem likely to happen. Markstrom will probably be returned to the AHL when Ryan Miller (lower-body) is ready to return to action. Markstrom has a 1-1-0 record with a 3.08 goals-against-average and a .879 save percentage in three games this season.
