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.

Francouz is dealing with a head injury and could face an extended absence, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Francouz was run over by Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele in Tuesday's matchup and was forced to leave the game. For now, it appears Adam Werner will fill in versus Edmonton on Thursday as Philipp Grubauer (lower body) remains on injured reserve.
