2020 Fantasy Outlook
There's no denying Shesterkin's talent, which was on full display during his 12 brilliant games with the Rangers last season, in which he racked up 10 wins thanks to a .932 save percentage. He's one of the league's most exciting prospects in net, but the path to elite netminding is never smooth, and the Rangers have another young goalie they can turn to in Alexandar Georgiev. Shesterkin showed great poise in limited viewings, but how effective he can remain over an entire season is still up in the air. He has fantastic long-term value in fantasy, but he'll enter the 2020-21 campaign with some inherent risk due to his limited sample size. Still, Shesterkin's upside is essentially unmatched, making him worthy of an early-round pick in most fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Gets win in relief Saturday

May 8, 2021
Shesterkin replaced Keith Kinkaid (undisclosed) midway through the third period Saturday, stopping seven of nine shots in a 5-4 win over the Bruins.
ANALYSIS
The two teams combined for four goals in the final 11 minutes, resulting in Shesterkin getting credit for the win, his 16th of the season. The 25-year-old battled injuries this season but was solid when he was on the ice, and he should head into next season as the Rangers' No. 1 netminder. Shesterkin went 16-14-3 with a 2.62 GAA and .916 save percentage in 35 appearances (31 starts).

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Shesterkin is a dynasty leaguer's dream, but his path to immediate playing time is blocked by the duo of Henrik Lundqvist and Alexandar Georgiev in net. The 23-year-old absolutely dominated KHL competition as the goalie for SKA Saint Petersburg -- a powerhouse team in a league that more resembles European soccer with its lack of parity. He posted a minuscule 1.11 GAA along with a .953 save percentage in 28 games last season, and Shesterkin will look to adjust to life in North America quickly so he can challenge Georgiev for the backup job. Expect Shesterkin to start the year in the AHL in order to maximize his playing time, but know that his ceiling is about as high as it gets for a goaltending prospect.
We're at least a season away from the Rangers putting the “York” in Shestyorkin, but it's never too early for dynasty owners to start keeping an eye on one of the best young goaltenders in the world. Shestyorkin has dominated in the KHL over the past two years, backing up a 1.64 GAA and .937 save percentage in 2016-17 with 1.69 and .933 marks last season for SKA Saint Petersburg. The 22-year-old Russian's contract is up at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, and with Henrik Lundqvist getting up there in age, Shestyorkin could contribute right away if the Rangers can coax him into coming over to North America next season.
