Connor Hellebuyck

You look at the NHL’s website and check out the individual statistics for goaltenders, and you almost sprain your eyebrows from arching-out-of-control in sheer surprise.

Top-rated goalies such as Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck (.891 save percentage, 3.67 goals-against average), Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy (a relatively pedestrian .911 SP and 2.53 GAA), Seattle’s Philipp Grubauer (.897 SP, 2.93 GAA) and Colorado’s Darcy Kuemper (.893 SP, 3.19 GAA) are not the best out of the gate this season.
