Elliott on NHL.com's top fantasy goaltenders list

by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames

New Calgary Flames goaltender Brian Elliott is ranked 14th on NHL.com's top fantasy goaltenders rankings heading into the 2016-17 season.

The rankings are based on projected starts, peripheral category coverage, time-share situations, team defences, past performance and upside in standard Yahoo categories (wins, GAA, SV%, shutouts).

The 31-year-old played 42 regular season games with the St. Louis Blues last season, going 23-8-10 with a 2.07 GAA and a .930 save percentage. In the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Elliott appeared in 18 games, going 9-9-1 with a 2.44 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Among goalies with at least 50 games played since 2011-12, Elliott is first in GAA (2.01) and second in save percentage (.925), behind Cory Schneider of the New Jersey Devils (.926) and in shutouts (25), behind Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings (28).
