Description: Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak was pulled in Tuesday's loss to Toronto.
Insight: He let up five goals on 23 shots, before being yanked in the third period. It was Halak's second loss of the season, but he remains entrenched as New York's top goaltender. Chad Johnson replaced Halak and stopped all five shots he faced.
 
10/18/2014 9:47:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak allowed just two goals, both on the power play, against the Penguins on Saturday.
Insight: Halak was superb, stopping 35-of-37 shots for a .946 save percentage. The Islanders held a 1-0 lead in the second period when New York took consecutive penalties and found themselves down two men. The Penguins scored on both power plays and then added an empty netter.
 
10/16/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak has now won all three starts this season.
Insight: He did not play particulary well, stopping 20-of-23 shots, but did just enough to get the shootout win. Halak still may be on waivers, so owners need to be aware of that.
 
10/10/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak stopped 21 of 24 shots against the Hurricanes on Friday to capture his first victory of the season.
Insight: Halak was pitching a shutout through two periods and looked good, but gave up three goals in the final period. Halak has never played more than 57 games in a season during his career, but he should easily surpass that if he stays healthy.

Insight: The 29-year-old spent most of last season with the Blues before being sent to Washington at the trade deadline. He was traded again a few weeks later. Halak was going to be a free agent this offseason but now he's under Islanders' control until 2018.

Description: Jaroslav Halak has been traded to the Islanders. SOURCE: Islanders.com
Insight: Washington is receiving a fourth-round pick for him. The Islanders will be Halak's fourth team in his last six seasons.
 
3/23/2014 11:57:00 AM
Description: Capitals goalie Jaroslav Halak was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup with a lower-body injury, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post.
Insight: Braden Holtby got the start after Halak took warmups. The injury is not considered serious. "He's OK," coach Adam Oates said. "I think he could come back and play Tuesday." Halak has stabilized the Capitals' goaltending situation by posting a 2.13 GAA and a .935 SV% in seven starts with the team.
 
3/8/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Washington's newly-acquired goalie Jaroslav Halak will make his Capitals debut on Saturday.
Insight: Halak never played a game for the Sabres after being traded from the Blues. He'll have his hands full with a less-than stellar defense in front of him. Halak was 24-9-4 with a 2.23 GAA and .917 SV% in St. Louis.
 
3/5/2014 3:54:00 PM
Description: Goalie Jaroslav Halak wasn't in Buffalo for long. He's on the move again, this time to the Washington Capitals. SOURCE: Bob McKenzie, TSN
Insight: Halak never played a game for the Sabres after being traded from the Blues. He'll presumably will replace Braden Holtby as Washington's starter. The Caps are a below-average defensive team but nowhere near as terrible as Buffalo.
 
2/28/2014 7:40:00 PM
Description: Goaltender Jaroslav Halak was traded from the St. Louis Blues to the Buffalo Sabres Friday night along with Chris Stewart, William Carrier, a 2015 first-round pick and a 2016 third-rounder for Ryan Miller and Steve Ott.
Insight: Halak goes from one of the best defensive teams in the NHL to one of the worst, and he also may have to split playing time with 25-year-old Jhonas Enroth as the Sabres play for the future.
 
Hot1/29/2014 8:21:00 PM
Description: Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak has gone 6-1-0 with a 1.66 GAA, a .940 SV% and two shutouts in January.
Insight: Halak blanked the Devils Tuesday with 23 saves for his fourth shutout of the season. He'll start again Friday, and Brian Elliot will handle the net Saturday.
 
Hot1/14/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak followed up his shut out of Calgary last Thursday with a 20-save effort in a 2-1 win over the Coyotes Tuesday.
Insight: Halak struggled in December and left the team in early January to deal with an illness. He has returned in top form.
 
1/2/2014 9:28:00 PM
Description: Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak has left the team for a couple of days to recover from an illness that he's been dealing with since Dec. 21. SOURCE: St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Insight: The Blues recalled Jake Allen to back up Brian Elliott Thursday against the Kings. St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock indicated Halak shouldn't be away from the team for long. "Tried to fight through it to be honest with you," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We just told Jaro it's best to stay at home right now for a day or two until you feel cleared up. It comes and goes. He feels good for a couple of hours and then he doesn't feel good. He's at 70 percent -- it's not good enough to play and it's not getting any better, so a couple of days away I think will really help him."
 
11/19/2013 10:42:00 PM
Description: Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak made 23 saves in a 4-1 win over Buffalo Tuesday night.
Insight: Halak needed a strong performance like this after getting pulled in the first period Sunday at Washington. He came in with a 3.01 GAA and an .868 SV% in November.
 
Cold11/17/2013 7:08:00 PM
Description: The Blues pulled goalie Jaroslav Halak out of Sunday's game against the Capitals after he allowed three goals in his first 15:41.
Insight: Halak entered the game 10-2-2 with a 2.31 GAA and a .907 SV% on the season, but he has struggled in November. This could open the door for Brian Elliott to get more starts.
 
Hot10/12/2013 2:55:00 PM
Description: St. Louis netminder Jaroslav Halak will make a fourth straight start Saturday against the Rangers.
Insight: Halak has started out 3-0-0 with a 1.34 GAA and a .948 SV%. The Blues have not had to play Brian Elliott for a single minute yet.
 
10/5/2013 11:03:00 PM
Description: St. Louis netminder Jaroslav Halak needed to make just 19 stops to shut out the Panthers Saturday night.
Insight: Being a Blues goaltender is great. For several years St. Louis has ranked near the top of the league for fewest SOG allowed, and Halak and Brian Elliott have not had to do much to post excellent GAAs.
 
10/3/2013 6:03:00 PM
Description: St. Louis netminder Jaroslav Halak will start the season opener Thursday against the Predators.
Insight: Halak had a subpar .899 SV% last season but since the Blues didn't allow many SOG he still had a strong 2.14 GAA. Injuries limited him to 16 games (15 starts), however, and he sat behind Brian Elliott in the playoffs. The two will be in a timeshare again in 2013-14, with Halak getting 55-60 percent of the starts. Jake Allen, who went 9-4-0 with a .905 SV% and a 2.46 GAA as a rookie, could be back up with the big club if either Halak or Elliott struggles.
 
4/25/2013 3:29:00 PM
Description: St. Louis netminder Jaroslav Halak (lower body) will back up Brian Elliot Thursday against Calgary. SOURCE: St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Insight: Halak hasn't played since April 1 and Elliot has recorded three shutouts this month. Halak could start St. Louis' regular season finale on Saturday to make sure he's ready for playoff action.
 
4/3/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: St. Louis netminder Jaroslav Halak will miss at least three weeks due to a lower-body injury that is related to the groin injury he suffered earlier this season, according to Pierre Lebrun of TSN.
Insight: It's looking unlikely that he will be able to return before the end of the regular season. Fantasy owners should grab Jake Allen, who played well in March when Halak was struggling. Brian Elliot will also be in the mix, but he has saved just 85.9 percent of his shots this season.
