Predators' Yaroslav Askarov: Takes loss in debut
Askarov stopped 31 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens.
Making his debut for the Predators, the 11th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft showed some nerves in the first period, but he settled down and the Habs needed power plays to score their final two goals of the night. Askarov will likely head back to AHL Milwaukee, where the 20-year-old goaltending prospect sports a 2.66 GAA and .905 save percentage through 22 games, when Kevin Lankinen (illness) is feeling 100 percent....

Predators' Yaroslav Askarov: Playing well in KHL
Askarov has gone 1-1-2 while posting an impressive 1.53 GAA and .925 save percentage through four games with the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg this season.
Askarov, the 11th overall pick from the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, will play the entirety of the 2021-22 campaign in Russia, but he could make the transition to North America to play in the AHL or serve as Juuse Saros' backup next season.
