Pyotr Kochetkov News
Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov will guard the crease against Vancouver on Sunday. The Russian netminder is getting his 18th start of the year and will be looking to end a three-game losing streak. Kochetkov has suddenly gone cold after looking nearly unbeatable for a long stretch. He has a 10-4-4 record for the season and boasts a 2.30 goals-against average with a .914 save percentage and three shutouts. The Hurricanes are huge favorites for the contest, but this is a tough matchup for Kochetkov, as Vancouver is averaging 3.40 goals per game. He will be backed up by Antti Raanta, with Frederik Andersen getting a rest day after beating Pittsburgh 2-1 with 34 saves on Saturday.
Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov upped his record to 10-1-4 with Tuesday's 4-1 victory over New Jersey. He stopped 37 of 38 shots, tying a franchise record in the process. The 23-year-old joined Cam Ward as the only goaltenders in the Hurricanes/Whalers franchise record to record a 10-game point streak. Kochetkov hasn't dropped a game in regulation since Nov. 23, going 8-0-2 while giving up only 17 goals during the run. It's been a huge year for Kochetkov, with him being tied for the most shutouts in the league with three and sitting behind only Boston's Linus Ullmark with a 1.94 goals-against average.
Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov neutralized the Red Wings on Tuesday with 27 saves in a 1-0 win. On his way to his second consecutive shutout, Kochetkov was busiest in the second period when Detroit fired 14 pucks at him. The Russian youngster is now tied for the league lead with three shutouts. The Hurricanes looked to have been in quite a bit of trouble when Frederik Andersen (lower body) went down with an injury, but Kochetkov has done an amazing job in his absence, posting a 7-1-4 record for the campaign with a 2.02 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage. Andersen's return isn't far away anymore and it will be a blow for Kochetkov's fantasy stock, but he has done more than enough to continue getting action. It would be smart for Carolina to use him in every road game, as Kochetkov hasn't yet dropped a single away outing in regulation, going 6-0-4.
Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov eased his way to his second shutout of the season Saturday, needing to produce only 16 saves to keep the Islanders at bay in a 3-0 win. It was a very lethargic performance from the home team, and it appeared that the Islanders were completely out of gas in the third period when they sent just four shots in Kochetkov's way. The 23-year-old Russian became the fourth rookie goaltender in league history with a season-opening road point streak of nine-plus games, and he's only the second netminder with at least one point in each of his first 12 road appearances, so Kochetkov is clearly enjoying the away days. He's now sitting on a 6-1-4 record and boasts a 2.21 goals-against average with a .918 save percentage.
