2019 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Bounces back in win
GNew York Rangers
March 10, 2020
Shesterkin stopped 31 of 33 shots Tuesday in a 4-2 win over Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Playing in just his second game since returning from a rib fracture, Shesterkin rebounded nicely from Saturday's performance in which he had given up a five-spot to New Jersey. The 24-year-old rookie had won seven straight appearances prior to his injury, so Tuesday's effort is an encouraging sign that he's recapturing that form.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.
