2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Finnish netminder once again saw limited action behind workhorse Sergei Bobrovsky, and the lack of work may have started to affect Korpisalo's development, as he put up the worst stats of his three-year NHL career in 2017-18. Now 24 years old, he has shown occasional flashes of No. 1 upside in the past, but the Blue Jackets were concerned enough about their options behind Bobrovsky that they brought in Jean-Francois Berube in the offseason, and the organization will be looking for further development from Matiss Kivlenieks as well. If Korpisalo struggles again in his sporadic chances, this could end up being his final season with the Blue Jackets. Read Past Outlooks

Korpisalo signed a one-year contract extension with the Blue Jackets on Monday.
ANALYSIS
As a restricted free agent, Korpisalo received a qualifying offer from the Jackets as the clear sign that he'd be re-upping with the Eastern Conference club. The Finn compiled a 10-7-3 record to go with a 2.95 GAA and .897 save percentage through 21 starts and 27 total appearances last season. His fantasy value could skyrocket with Sergei Bobrovsky expected to depart Columbus through free agency.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

There’s only so much fantasy appeal in a backup tender stuck behind a reigning Vezina Trophy winner, but Sergei Bobrovsky’s understudy has wet his feet to the tune of 45 career NHL games, holding a respectable 23-16-5 record and .915 save percentage over the last two seasons. Korpisalo takes up plenty of real estate in the cage at 6-foot-3, and he’s unafraid to challenge skaters outside of the blue paint. Embarking on his his age 23-season, view the Finn as a solid, up-and-coming insurance option in Columbus.
Korpisalo, an athletic young Finnish goalie, needs a lot of polish, but he's got NHL upside.
This Finnish goaltending prospect was the Jackets' second-round pick in this past June's draft. Korpisalo will have prototypical size for an NHL netminder once he's done growing, but he's a way from seeing NHL ice. He will spend another season in Finland after turning some heads at last winter's World Junior Championships.
