Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney was pulled during Saturday's loss against the Avalanche.
Insight: He stopped just nine shots on 12 opportunities, and was lifted after the first period. Sergei Bobrovsky took over, and made 20 saves and 21 shots on goal.
3/1/2015 8:13:00 PM
Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney allowed five goals on Sunday afternoon.
Insight: He faced 41 total shots in a loss to the Penguins, and is now 10-13-2 overall.
2/28/2015 7:39:00 PM
Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney made 17 saves on 18 shots versus the Devils, but it wasn't enough as Columbus lost, 2-0.
Insight: The final New Jersey goal was an empty-netter. McElhinney is 10-12-2 this season and came into the day with a 2.75 GAA and .915 save percentage.
2/19/2015 9:47:00 PM
Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney was great on Thursday, allowing just one goal and beating Pittsburgh, 2-1.
Insight: McElhinney made some fantastic glove saves including one on Sidney Crosby from close range in the second period. He is now 10-9-1 this season and has won five of his last six starts. There is a small chance that even when Sergei Bobrovsky comes back that McElhinney will remain the starter just because the Blue Jackets need to go on a winning streak to make the playoffs and can't afford to wait for Bobrovsky to find his stride again. Therefore, it's possible the team stays with the hot hand in McElhinney. Regardless, McElhinney should be owned in all leagues.
2/13/2015 9:47:00 PM
Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney allowed three goals, but help defeat the Flyers in overtime on Friday.
Insight: He faced 25 shots on goal and did just enough to help Columbus earn a victory. McElhinney is now 8-9-1 on the season.
2/6/2015 10:05:00 PM
Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney defeated the Blues on Friday night.
Insight: He was the benefactor of seven goals, but McElhinney played well himself, stopping 32-of-33 shots on goal. He is now 6-9-1 on the season.
1/29/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney is playing pretty well replacing the injured starter Sergei Bobrovsky in net.
Insight: McElhinney made 25 saves on Tuesday and another 28 saves on 31 shots Thursday. Unfortunately, the Blue Jackets were able to score enough to win Thursday as Columbus lost, 3-2. McElhinney is 5-7-1 this season.
10/28/2014 10:15:00 PM
Description: Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney was not good in his first start after given the starting role due to Sergei Bobrovsky's injury.
Insight: McElhinney stopped just 29 shots and allowed five goals. The Blue jackets, the sleeper pick in the Metropolitan division, are in seventh place, in front of just the winless Hurricanes.

Insight: Mike McKenna filled in for him and got the win, his fifth of the season. If McElhinney can't go Saturday against St. Louis, McKenna would get another start between the pipes.
12/6/2013 9:38:00 PM
Description: Columbus goaltender Curtis McElhinney picked up his third career shutout Friday against Minnesota.
Insight: The journeyman netminder was pushed into starting duty following Sergei Bobrovsky's groin injury. He's 2-3-1 with a 2.02 GAA and a .932 SV% this season but isn't likely to maintain his production.

Description: Columbus backup goaltender Curtis McElhinney will defend the cage Saturday at Boston.
Insight: McElhinney is playing his first game since Nov. 19. He's 1-2-1 with a 2.32 GAA and a .923 SV% this season.
11/5/2013 6:12:00 PM
Description: Columbus backup goaltender Curtis McElhinney will start a second straight game Tuesday against Ottawa.
Insight: There's been no word of an injury for Sergei Bobrovsky, so it's likely the team is just giving the 2012-13 Vezina Trophy winner some extra rest after pulling him Friday at Pittsburgh. The 30-year-old McElhinney is 1-1-0 with a 1.55 GAA and a .949 SV% in three games (two starts) this season.
11/2/2013 2:40:00 PM
Description: Columbus backup goaltender Curtis McElhinney will start Saturday against the Penguins.
Insight: McElhinney has played just two games and 96 minutes this season behind Sergei Bobrovsky. He's 1-0-0 with a 1.25 GAA and a .962 SV%, but he can be avoided against the high-powered Penguins.
10/4/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Columbus backup goaltender Curtis McElhinney is questionable for Friday's game against Calgary with a lower body injury.
Insight: McElhinney has little fantasy value behind last year's Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky.
7/4/2011 2:36:00 PM
Description: The Phoenix Coyotes have signed Curtis McElhinney to a one-year, two-way contract. TSN
Insight: McElhinney will be able to compete during training camp with Mike Smith and Jason LaBarbera to be the Coyotes' starting goalie. However, he will likely either be the team's backup or in the AHL.
3/23/2011 2:01:00 PM
Description: For the first time in his five games with Ottawa, McElhinney allowed more than two goals Tuesday night.
Insight: He yielded four, to be exact, amid 24 shots in the loss. McElhinney came to the Senators with nothing approaching high regard, so the fact that such an outing hasn't been the norm so far is commendable. We'll see how he proceeds. (RapidDraft.com)
3/20/2011 4:00:00 AM
Description: McElhinney was a star yet again for the Sens, stopping 35 of 37 shots to beat Tampa Bay.
Insight: It was the second time in his four games with Ottawa that McElhinney beat the team that waived him. He has yet to allow more than two goals in a game as a Senator. (RapidDraft.com)
3/18/2011 2:02:00 AM
Description: McElhinney was the top star for the second time in three games with Ottawa, halting 33 of 34 shots to beat New Jersey Thursday night.
Insight: McElhinney has a .953 save rate through three outings with the Senators, a far cry from the kind of performances that got him traded and then waived just a few weeks ago. We'll see if he can keep up his best Al Montoya impression. (RapidDraft.com)
3/12/2011 11:03:00 AM
Description: McElhinney halted 34 of 35 shots in his Senators debut Friday night to earn top-star status against the team that waived him last month.
Insight: The Sens claimed McElhinney on Feb. 28 after Tampa Bay waived him four days after a trade with Anaheim. The 27-year-old netminder has a .895 save rate and 3.30 GAA for the season, though, so don't overreact to one good game. (RapidDraft.com)
2/28/2011 1:17:00 PM
Description: The Ottawa Senators have claimed goalie Curtis McElhinney off waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning. TSN
Insight: McElhinney was acquired just days ago from the Anaheim Ducks for Dan Ellis. He will probably serve as Craig Anderson's backup. Senators GM Bryan Murray said recently that Pascal Leclaire would likely spend some time in the AHL unless he was claimed off waivers (which he wasn't), so Leclaire probably won't factor into the goaltending mix for now.
