Dec. 5, 2017 Filling in for an ailing Henrik Lundqvist, Pavelec came up with a season-high 41 saves to help the Rangers to Tuesday's 4-3 win at Pittsburgh. Lundqvist is just dealing with an illness and should be good to go when the Rangers visit Washington on Friday. Despite this strong effort, Pavelec would be a risky alternative if Lundqvist can't go, as he still owns a lackluster 3.46 goals-against average and .899 save percentage for the season.
July 1, 2017 The Rangers have signed Pavelec to a one-year, $1.3 million contract. Pavelec, who turns 30 in August, replaces the traded Antti Raanta as Henrik Lundqvist's backup.

Feb. 4, 2017 Pavelec stopped 23 of 27 shots in the Jets' 5-2 loss at Colorado on Saturday.

Pavelec hasn't done much to generate interest, though, having allowed at least three goals in each of those outings.
Jan. 21, 2017 Pavelec made 34 saves in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Blues. Pavelec has earned two wins in as many starts, allowing three goals in each, since being called up from the AHL.

It was Pavelec's first NHL game this season after the veteran goalie was sent to the American Hockey League's Manitoba Moose at the end of training camp. The 29-year-old Pavelec was recalled Tuesday to start instead of Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson, who each struggled during the team's winless skid (0-3-1).
Jan. 17, 2017 The Jets have recalled Pavelec from their AHL affiliate in Manitoba. The veteran has spent the entire season in the minors with the Jets opting to go with Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson as their top two goaltenders, though neither has been particularly consistent. Pavelec may not be the answer either, as he posted a lackluster 2.78 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in 18 games with Manitoba.
