Red Wings' Ville Husso: Snags win in preseason debut
Husso set aside 15 of 16 shots en route to a 5-2 preseason win over the Capitals on Saturday.
Husso looked sharp in his preseason debut, with the only damage against him coming in the form of a Dylan Strome power-play tally. Coach Derek Lalonde said last week that Husso will manage a workload similar to what he endured last season, meaning the Finnish netminder figures to log between 55-58 starts. When he needs a breather during the regular season, James Reimer -- whom the Wings signed in free agency -- would be next in line to get the call as the No. 2 backstop.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Ville Husso: Will not have workload scaled back
The Red Wings plan to give Husso a similar workload as he had last season, albeit with improved schedule management, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Husso drew a career-high 56 starts in his debut campaign with the Red Wings, posting a 26-22-7 record, 3.11 GAA and .896 save percentage in the process. The rate stats left a lot to be desired from a fantasy perspective, but this article corroborates the idea that he was thrown into the fire too often. The Finn is entering just his fourth season at 28 years old, with the offseason additions of James Reimer, Alex Lyon and Michael Hutchinson figuring to give the team some much needed depth in goal. "We have a plan on what the season will look like," coach Derek Lalonde said of Husso. "It's probably a day-to-day thing, but we foresee him (in) the 55, 56-58 range. Hopefully, we can manage it a little bit better than we did last year in the volume of when and where."... See More ... See Less
