Pavel Francouz
29-Year-Old GoalieG
2019 Fantasy Outlook
With battle-tested veteran Semyon Varlamov dispatched to the Islanders in free agency, opportunity knocks for Francouz in the NHL. The lanky netminder -- who spent eight seasons honing his craft between a Czech league and the KHL -- posted a 27-20-1 record, 2.68 GAA and .918 save percentage for AHL Colorado in 2018-19. He stumbled in the Calder Cup playoffs, but not before making an All-Star appearance in the minors. Bound by a one-year, $950,000 contract, Francouz projects to serve as the No. 2 option behind Phillipp Grubauer in Denver this season, though he'll be hard-pressed to register more than 25 starts as an understudy to the emerging Grubauer.

Secures one-year deal

Francouz agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Colorado on Friday. The deal is one-way in nature, per Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic, which means the netminder can't be easily moved between leagues.
ANALYSIS
In order to send Francouz down to the minors next season, the organization would have to designate him for waivers and risk losing him for nothing. This should probably be considered the final nail in the coffin for Semyon Varlamov's stint in the Mile High City, as the team prepares to head into the 2019-20 campaign with Francouz backing up Philipp Grubauer.
