Top Joel Hofer News

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Needed in relief against Wings

    Hofer turned aside 18 of 20 shots after replacing Jordan Binnington to begin the second period in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Red Wings.

    Detroit grabbed a 4-0 lead in the first period to chase Binnington from the crease, and St. Louis never got back into the game. Hofer has started just one of the Blues' last seven contests, and the 23-year-old doesn't quite seem ready to push for the No. 1 job despite a .913 save percentage over seven outings since the beginning of January.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Falls to Toronto

    Hofer allowed three goals on 28 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Monday.

    After holding Toronto to one goal through the first two periods, Hofer surrendered a power-play tally to Auston Matthews 45 seconds into the third and a short-handed marker to William Nylander later in the frame before the Leafs added an empty-netter, sticking Hofer with the loss. It was the first start since Feb. 10 for the 23-year-old netminder, though he'd won his previous three outings, sporting a .929 save percentage in that span. Hofer falls to 10-9-0 with a .912 save percentage and 2.80 GAA while backing up Jordan Binnington this season.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Wins third straight

    Hofer made 33 saves in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Sabres.

    A Kyle Okposo tally early in the second period spoiled his shutout bid, but Hofer was otherwise sharp as he won his third straight start. It could be telling that the 23-year-old netminder got the Blues' first start after the All-Star break after working into a timeshare with Jordan Binnington at the end of January. Over his last nine outings dating back to mid-December, Hofer sports a 2.37 GAA and .930 save percentage.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Hangs on for OT win

    Hofer stopped 30 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kings.

    Los Angeles twice grabbed one-goal leads earlier in the game, but Hofer kept his focus and shut down the opposition through the third period and OT. It's the 23-year-old netminder's second straight win after a three-game losing streak, but he's given up at least three goals in all five starts. On the season, Hofer sports a 9-8-0 record with a 2.89 GAA and .909 save percentage.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Gets overtime win

    Hofer stopped 29 of 32 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.

    The Blues started well, but Hofer surrendered a third-period hat trick to Pius Suter. Brayden Schenn salvaged the win for the Blues with the game-winner, giving Hofer his first win since Dec. 27. He's allowed at least three goals in each of his last four outings. The 23-year-old netminder is at 8-8-0 with a 2.88 GAA and a .909 save percentage through 17 appearances this season. Without better performances, Hofer is likely to remain in the backup role behind Jordan Binnington.

    Hofer stopped 38 of 41 shots in Monday's 4-2 defeat to the Flyers.

    Hofer stood tall against a barrage of Philadelphia shots Monday, though Owen Tippett would eventually tally the game-winner late in the third period, sticking the 23-year-old netminder with a third straight loss. Hofer falls to 7-8-0 with a .910 save percentage and 2.88 GAA this season while sharing work with Jordan Binnington.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Falls to Florida

    Hofer allowed four goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Panthers.

    After holding Florida to just one goal in each of the first two periods, Hofer surrendered a pair of tallies to Matthew Tkachuk in the final frame en route to an eventual 5-1 defeat. The 23-year-old netminder has now dropped back-to-back starts, allowing seven goals on 59 shots in that span. Still, it's been a solid positive campaign overall thus far for Hofer, as he's worked his way into a timeshare with Jordan Binnington while going 7-7-0 with a .908 save percentage and 2.87 GAA through 15 appearances.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Facing Florida

    Hofer will defend the home goal against the Panthers on Tuesday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

    Hofer was a little shaky in his last start Dec. 30 against the Penguins, surrendering three goals on 29 shots en route to a 4-2 defeat. He'll try to get back in the win column in a rough home matchup with a scorching-hot Florida team that's won seven straight games.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Strong effort in loss

    Hofer made 26 saves in a 4-2 loss Saturday to Pittsburgh.

    Hofer played a strong game, making several great saves including breakaway stops on Rielly Smith and Jake Guentzel. But there were also some adventures in netminding -- Hofer went out to handle the puck early in the third and blew the play, resulting in the puck ending up in the net off Jeff Carter's stick. The Pens were up 3-1 at that point. Hofer has a bright future, and he'll certainly iron out his gaffes as his ice time increases.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Starting Saturday

    Hofer will defend the road crease in Pittsburgh on Saturday, Lou Korac of The Hockey News reports.

    Hofer was outstanding Wednesday, stopping 39 shots in a 2-1 victory over Dallas. It was his second straight win as he was just as good Dec. 21, turning aside 37 shots in a 4-1 victory in Florida. Those strong performances have pushed Hofer up to a 7-5-0 record with a 2.74 GAA and a .912 save percentage in 13 contests this season. The Penguins are 26th in NHL scoring with 100 goals in 33 games.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Makes 39 saves in win

    Hofer turned aside 39 of 40 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over the Stars.

    Hofer was superb Wednesday, as he allowed just a lone Jason Robertson goal in the second period while turning aside a career-high 39 shots in the St. Louis win. The 23-year-old Hofer has won his last two starts, allowing just two goals on 78 shots in that span. Overall, he's 7-5-0 with a .912 save percentage and 2.73 GAA this season. With Jordan Binnington struggling of late, Hofer could be in line for more starting opportunities going forward.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Set to face Stars

    Hofer is expected to start at home in Wednesday's game against Dallas, according to Lou Korac of NHL.com.

    Hofer saved 37 of 38 shots en route to a 4-1 win against Florida in his last start Thursday. He's 6-5-0 with a 2.92 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 12 appearances in 2023-24. The Stars rank sixth offensively this year with 3.50 goals per game, so this will be a difficult matchup for Hofer.

  • Blues' Joel Hofer: Cruises to win

    Hofer set aside 37 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

    The Blues' backup goalie was on point -- he picked up a career high in saves en route to his sixth win in 12 games. In fact, the only damage against Hofer was a fluky Eetu Luostarinen goal where the puck pinballed off the sideboard glass and slid right into the cage upon the winger's clearing attempt. Hofer owns a 2.92 GAA and .904 save percentage while playing second fiddle to Jordan Binnington, but Hofer's starts have been few and far between.
