Kaapo Kahkonen News
San Jose Sharks goaltender Kaapo Kahkonen stopped 44-of-47 shots on goal in Friday's 6-3 victory against the Devils. Kahkonen matched his season-high with the 44-save performance, while he has earned three wins over his previous four starts. Kahkonen had a rough start to the season with five consecutive losses prior to picking up his first win, but the 27-year-old has shown improvement in recent times and carries season totals of a 3.99 goals against average and .896 save percentage through 10 appearances.
San Jose Sharks goaltender Kaapo Kahkonen (upper body) missed Friday's practice and is questionable for Saturday's meeting with Pittsburgh. The Finnish netminder was involved in a collision with Vancouver Canucks forward Andrei Kuzmenko Thursday night. Kahkonen was pulled from the contest in the middle of the second frame after he had allowed six goals on 19 shots. He was seen on the Sharks bench but might now be unavailable for the next game. San Jose is off to a horrible start, and Kahkonen has taken a few beatings as well, going 0-4-0 with a 4.30 goals-against average and a .876 save percentage. Mackenzie Blackwood should start Saturday as the Sharks continue to search for their first victory.
San Jose Sharks goaltender Kaapo Kahkonen notched a shutout on Tuesday night as part of a 2-0 victory over the defending champion Vegas Golden Knights. He wasn't overly busy on the evening, turning aside all 18 shots he faced at T-Mobile Arena in Vegas. It was his second win of the preseason while he lowered his numbers to a 1.00 goals-against average and .962 save percentage in exhibition play. The 27-year-old worked to a rough 3.85 GAA and .883 Sv% across 37 outings last season, his first full season in San Jose. For his career, Kahkonen owns a 3.23 GAA and .899 Sv% in 102 appearances between the Sharks and Minnesota Wild and should be left alone in fantasy drafts this fall.
San Jose Sharks netminder Kaapo Kahkonen faced 42 shots and allowed four goals, resulting in an overtime defeat at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday. This marks his 11th loss in his last 12 games, and his performance this season has been consistently poor. He has a record of 9-18-7 with a high 3.83 goals-against-average and a save percentage of just .881. He has to go up against Colorado again, who has been in good form lately, winning five of their last six games.
