2019 Fantasy Outlook
Korpisalo's apprenticeship under Sergei Bobrovsky has finally come to an end. The 25-year-old has spent the last four seasons as the backup in Columbus, and his performance since his rookie season has left a lot to be desired. While Korpisalo is capable of big games, his overall inconsistency has led to sub-.900 save percentages in each of the last two campaigns. With Bobrovsky now a Panther, his former understudy heads into camp perched precariously atop the depth chart for the Blue Jackets, but prospect Elvis Merzlikins will be looking to unseat him. If Korpisalo does start, he'll at least have the benefit of working behind a blue line corps that remains one of the best in the league. Read Past Outlooks

Korpisalo made 25 saves in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blues.
ANALYSIS
St. Louis grabbed a 2-1 lead midway through the second period, but Korpisalo shut the door after that and gave Columbus a chance to come back and record the win. The 25-year-old netminder had just one win in his prior six starts, and on the year he's 7-7-1 with a 3.04 GAA and .897 save percentage as he keeps a tenuous hold on the No. 1 job for the Jackets.

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.
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.
