Observations

Jan 2020 – It’s been a rollercoaster year for the AHL rookie. In his first 12 outings, he never let in less than two goals and let in three or more goals on nine of the 12 occasions. Ouch. He is trending positively though. He already has two shutouts in the month of January and is bringing both his save percentage and his GAA into… somewhat respectable territories. He currently sits with a 0.900 and a 2.96 which still puts him obviously outside of the top 30 AHL goaltenders in 2019-20. I will repeat myself though; he is trending upwards. All three of Calgary’s minor league goaltenders are RFA’s after this season (Gillies + Parsons) so it really is anyone’s crease. With Rittich and Talbot showing to be a quality tandem most nights, there isn’t a big rush on any of them currently anyways.  – Joel Henderson

June 2019 – Artyom Zagidulin was signed to a one-year ELC by the Calgary Flames. The 23-tear-old goaltender had a breakout season in the KHL by posting a .924 save percentage with a 1.96 GAA. As a free agent, he was lured to the NHL by Calgary most likely due to the uncertainty of their NHL tandem moving forward. At this point, his athleticism and calm movements set him up for success at the NHL level. 

Zagidulin is a butterfly-style goaltender who protects the bottom of the net very well. He is an agile netminder who moves quick post-to-post. He has a tendency to sit a little low once he goes to the butterfly and that might be something he works on improving moving forward. Overall, he has a similar style to Flames prospect Tyler Parsons and should provide strong internal competition should an injury arise at the NHL level.  – Joel Henderson
