ESPN Fantasy Projection: Georgiev was acquired from the Rangers by the Avalanche in the offseason, and Colorado subsequently bestowed a three-year, $10.2 million contract upon the 26-year-old netminder. Darcy Kuemper left in free agency after starting for the Stanley Cup champion Avalanche in 2021-22, but Pavel Francouz is still on hand to compete with Georgiev for playing time. Moving from Igor Shesterkin's shadow in New York to an open competition for playing time behind arguably the league's best group of skaters was the best thing that could have happened for Georgiev's fantasy outlook, but now it's up to him to capitalize on the opportunity. In his time with the Rangers, Georgiev alternated moments of brilliance with total duds, compiling a 2.94 GAA and .908 save percentage in 129 appearances spread over five seasons.
