#74 Juuse Saros
Now anyone that knows anything about the NHL has heard this name before and will continue hearing it for years to come.
Juuse Saros has made a name for himself after taking the reins from Pekka Rinne for the Predators. Over the past two seasons, Saros has played in 67 and 64 games respectively.
Now granted this level of play will put extra wear and tear on the body of a goaltender but he has not let that slow him down, even looking like he plays better when he does not have a break in play.
When you have a goaltender that is the workhorse that Saros is for the Predators, it is a huge asset as goaltenders can snag you so many points.
During 2021-22, Saros had 38 wins, 25 losses, and only 3 overtime/shootout losses. Follow that up with a 2022-23 season record of 33-23-7, and you have an All-Star goalie for a fantasy hockey team.
Suspected to go early in fantasy hockey drafts, the Finnish goaltender has posted a .919 save percentage and 2.69 GAA just one season ago.
The Predators have come to lean heavily on Saros as of late since their goal scoring ability has not been present, and he has answered the call.
On a team that gives up a lot of shots, Saros is sure to rack up some points on saves alone.
