Ilya Sorokin News
New York Islanders goaltender Ilya Sorokin stopped 35-of-37 shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 victory against the Maple Leafs. Sorokin picked up his third win of the season against the Maple Leafs, while surrendering a total of only eight goals across the three meetings. Sorokin improves to a record of 15-12-9 to go along with a 3.13 goals against average and .910 save percentage through 36 appearances, which is tied for the third most across the entire NHL.
New York Islanders goaltender Ilya Sorokin will make his third start of the season Friday against the New Jersey Devils. The Islanders begin a back-to-back set, and Sorokin gets the first leg, with Saturday's battle against Buffalo reserved for backup Semyon Varlamov. Sorokin has been in dominant form already at the start of the campaign, saving 40 of 42 shots and winning both of his first two starts. He has a chance to register a second consecutive shutout on Friday after keeping the Coyotes at bay with 14 saves on Tuesday. It's an uncomfortable matchup for Sorokin against a team that's full of offensive talent, but he carries a strong 6-3-0 career record against New Jersey, and the Islanders have dropped just five of the last 21 home outings in this matchup.
New York Islanders goaltender Ilya Sorokin made light work of the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday, picking up a shutout with only 14 saves in a 1-0 win. The Coyotes faced the Rangers Monday night and appeared to have had no gas left, recording only seven shots on target through the first two periods. Sorokin has done very little wrong at the start of the new season, as he's a perfect 2-0-0 through two starts and owns a 1.00 goals-against average with a .952 save percentage. The Islanders now have a back-to-back coming up against New Jersey and Buffalo, which should also give backup Semyon Varlamov a chance to get some action.
New York islanders goaltenders Ilya Sorokin and Semyon Varlamov have agreed to contract extensions with the club. Sorokin has inked a big eight-year extension with an average annual value of $8.25 million and Varlamov's new contract will take up $2.75 million of the salary cap for the next four years. Sorokin's contract will kick in next season. The two Russian netminders have given the Islanders one of the best goalie tandems in the league and it looks like they won't be broken up for quite some time. Sorokin and Varlamov combined for a .921 save percentage last season, which was second-best in the league, behind only the dominant Boston Bruins (.931).
