  • Jaroslav Halak: Dropped from tryout

    Halak was released from his tryout by the Hurricanes on Monday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Halak was brought in after Frederik Andersen (illness) was ruled out indefinitely but won't be sticking around long term. Antti Raanta figures to remain the No. 1 option for the Canes while Pyotr Kochetkov serves as the backup. For his part, Halak could be facing the end of his playing career unless he wants to play overseas.

  • Hurricanes' Jaroslav Halak: Heading to Raleigh

    Carolina announced Monday that Halak will join the team as a free agent tryout.

    Halak could end up signing a standard contract with the Hurricanes soon because Frederik Andersen (undisclosed) is undergoing evaluations for a medical issue. If Halak officially joins the roster, he will compete with Antti Raanta for playing time. The 38-year-old Halak posted a 10-9-5 record with a 2.72 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 25 appearances for the Rangers last season.

    Halak is expected to guard the home crease against Toronto on Thursday, per Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today.

    Halak surrendered three goals in each of his previous three starts. Through 24 contests this season, he's posted a 10-8-5 record, 2.71 GAA and .904 save percentage. Toronto is tied for the eighth ranked offense with 3.40 goals per game in 2022-23.

  • Rangers' Jaroslav Halak: Allows three in loss

    Halak made 18 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday.

    Timothy Liljegren scored early in the third to tie the game 1-1 after his shot hit off Niko Mikkola's stick and fluttered through Halak's five-hole. William Nylander roofed a shot from in tight about five minutes later to knot things 2-2. And Noel Acciari jammed in his own rebound five minutes later to push the Leafs ahead to stay. Halak is 0-2-1 in his last three games and will likely spend the Rangers' postseason run on the end of the bench.

    Halak turned aside 19 of 22 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to St. Louis on Thursday.

    The Rangers rallied back from a 2-0 deficit midway through the second period, with Halak making some big stops, but he couldn't deny Jeff Skinner in OT. Halak is 2-0-2 over his last four starts with a 2.22 GAA and .928 save percentage. The veteran backup should get at least one more start this season with the Rangers playing back-to-back games next Wednesday and Thursday against the Lightning and Blues.

  • Rangers' Jaroslav Halak: Second straight win

    Halak made 31 saves in a 4-3 win over the Panthers on Saturday.

    He allowed two in the first period before settling down. Aleksander Barkov scored on a jam play and Ryan Lomberg stepped into a back pass and blasted it inside the far post. Halak then held the kitties at bay until Barkov swept the puck past his right pad in the third after a failed wraparound. He has two straight wins, but may not see many starts until the battle for home ice between the Rangers and Devils is settled. The Rangers sit four points behind their foe.

  • Rangers' Jaroslav Halak: Blanks Nashville in blowout win

    Halak stopped all 22 shots he faced and picked up an assist in Sunday's 7-0 win over the Predators.

  • Rangers' Jaroslav Halak: Guarding home cage Sunday

    Halak will be between the pipes Sunday for a home matchup with the Predators, per Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today.

  • Rangers' Jaroslav Halak: Falls to Pens in OT

    Halak turned aside 32 shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins.

    After Igor Shesterkin stole an OT win against the Sabres the day before, Halak wasn't able to duplicate that result as Kris Letang blasted home a power-play tally in the extra frame. Halak is 0-3-1 over his last five appearances with an .883 save percentage, and while that stretch follows a seven-start winning streak, the Rangers are still likely to lean heavily on Shesterkin over the final weeks of the regular season.

  • Rangers' Jaroslav Halak: Needed in relief Saturday

    Halak turned aside four of five shots after replacing Igor Shesterkin to begin the third period of Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Capitals.

    The Rangers are playing some awful defense these days, and the team has given up at least four goals six times in the last 10 games, making life difficult for whichever goalie is between the pipes. With New York back in action Sunday at home against the Kings, Halak seems likely to get the nod despite his unimpressive 2.72 GAA and .902 save percentage on the season.

  • Rangers' Jaroslav Halak: Allows four goals in loss

    Halak allowed four goals on 23 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Red Wings.

    Halak got the start over a slumping Igor Shesterkin but failed to contain the Red Wings, stopping just 19 of 23 shots in the loss. Halak has dropped his last two starts after winning his previous seven. He falls to 8-7-2 with a .903 save percentage this season. Halak should see another chance to get back in the win column this week with the Rangers playing back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday.
