Niklas Treutle will get his first NHL start Thursday for Coyotes

Arizona Coyotes goalie Niklas Treutle will start in his first NHL game on Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks

What It Means:

Treutle made his NHL debut on Saturday in relief of starter Louis Domingue, turning aside all four shots he faced in 9:54 minutes of ice time. He has a 2.91 goals against average and .909 save percentage in 26 contests in the American Hockey League.

We project Treutle to face 29.44 shots against the Ducks and make 27.17 saves (2.26 goals allowed), giving himself a 45 percent chance at earning the win. He's our 10th-ranked goalie on Thursday, a night with 24 options at the position.
