Top Josef Korenar News

  • Josef Korenar: Signs with Czech team

    Korenar has signed a two-year contract with HC Sparta Praha of the Czechia league, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

    Korenar wasn't expected to be tendered by the Coyotes as a restricted free agent this summer, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. It remains to be seen if the 24-year-old goaltender will try to return to the NHL following his two-year stint with HC Sparta Praha.

  • Coyotes' Josef Korenar: Sent to minor-league affiliate

    Korenar was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Saturday.

    Korenar will presumably head to the minors to get increased playing time. He's gone 3-9-2 while posting a 4.48 GAA and an .853 save percentage through 18 AHL appearances this season.

  • Coyotes' Josef Korenar: Solid in relief outing

    Korenar allowed two goals on 28 shots in relief of Karel Vejmelka in Friday's 5-0 loss to the Ducks.

    Korenar has made both of his appearances this season in relief. He played the last 50:18 of the lopsided contest Friday, as the Coyotes' depleted offense sans Clayton Keller (leg) was unable to get anything going. Korenar shouldn't have to wait long for his first start with the Coyotes -- they visit the Blackhawks on Sunday and the Blues on Monday for their next two games. Korenar has allowed three goals on 35 shots in his two outings.

  • Coyotes' Josef Korenar: Makes team debut in relief

    Korenar allowed a goal on seven shots in relief of Karel Vejmelka in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Oilers.

    Korenar didn't face much traffic with the Oilers having full control of the game, but he still allowed a goal to Leon Draisaitl in the third period. The 24-year-old Korenar has yet to really compete with Vejmelka, who started on consecutive nights in this contest. Korenar is likely set for a backup role, though he could also end up with AHL Tucson once Harri Sateri gets up to speed with the Coyotes after he was claimed on waivers.

  • Coyotes' Josef Korenar: Recalled from Tucson

    Korenar was recalled from AHL Tucson on Monday.

    Korenar will provide depth behind Karel Vejmelka in Arizona's net, as the team has traded away fellow goalie Scott Wedgewood. The Coyotes also claimed Harri Sateri off waivers, so Korenar will likely battle Sateri for the backup spot behind Vejmelka. If Sateri's not ready to suit up Tuesday against the Kraken, Korenar could get a chance to make his Coyotes debut.

    Korenar drew into 10 games with the Sharks in 2020-21, going 3-5-0 while posting a 3.17 GAA and an .899 save percentage. The 23-year-old netminder will likely compete for the Coyotes' backup spot during next campaign's training camp.

The 23-year-old Korenar posted a 3-5-0 record with a 3.17 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 10 appearances this year.

  • Sharks' Josef Korenar: Overwhelmed by Coyotes

    Korenar yielded four goals on 33 shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

    Korenar was fairly solid for the first 30 minutes, but the Coyotes' offense rallied from behind. This result left Korenar with his fourth loss in seven starts. He fell to 3-5-0 with a 3.17 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 10 appearances overall. Korenar is likely set to sit out Saturday's rematch with the Coyotes as Alexei Melnichuk makes his first NHL start.

  • Sharks' Josef Korenar: Slated to start

    Korenar is on track to start between the pipes in Friday's home game against Arizona, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Korenar was sharp in his last start Wednesday versus Colorado, stopping 30 of 32 shots en route to an impressive 3-2 victory. He'll attempt to earn his fourth win of the campaign in a home matchup with a slumping Coyotes club that's lost three of its last four games.

  • Sharks' Josef Korenar: Impressive in win over Avalanche

    Korenar allowed two goals on 32 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Korenar gave up a pair of second-period goals, but he shook it off and played perfectly to backstop the Sharks' third-period comeback. The 23-year-old goalie continues to eat into Martin Jones' playing time. Korenar has a 3-4-0 record with a 3.04 GAA and a .902 save percentage in nine games. The Czech netminder will likely see at least one more start in the Sharks' last three contests of the season.

  • Sharks' Josef Korenar: Tending twine Wednesday

    Korenar will guard the crease for Wednesday's home clash with Colorado, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Since making his NHL debut April 10, Korenar is 2-4-0 with a 3.21 GAA in eight contests, not exactly a stellar start to his NHL career. Still, the 23-year-old netminder should continue to see plenty of action down the stretch as the Sharks try to determine their plans between the pipes into the future, though being tied to Martin Jones for another three years at a $5.75 million cap hit certainly muddies the waters.

    Korenar produced the best single-game save total of his young career, but it wasn't enough to win a third straight start. The 23-year-old rookie dropped to 2-4-0 on the year with a 3.21 GAA and .896 save percentage.

    Korenar was rock solid in his last start Wednesday against Arizona, turning aside 28 of 30 shots en route to a 4-2 victory. He'll try to secure a third straight win in a rough road matchup with a Colorado team that's averaging 3.83 goals per game at home this year, first in the NHL.
