2021 Fantasy Outlook
Sorokin was blitzed for five goals by the Rangers in his NHL debut before allowing four or more goals just three times the rest of the season. His final numbers (13-6-3, 3 shutouts, 2.17 GAA, .918 save percentage) were exceptional behind a defensive-minded Islanders team. Sorokin was widely regarded as the best goaltender in the KHL prior to his arrival stateside and he worked extremely well in tandem with fellow Russian Semyon Varlamov. Varlamov has two years left on his contract and Isles coach Barry Trotz has always been a coach that uses both his goalies a ton, so Sorokin is looking at another timeshare. He has additional fantasy value in leagues that allow daily lineup changes as opposed to weekly. Read Past Outlooks

Strong showing against Flyers
GNew York Islanders
January 17, 2022
Sorokin stopped 26 of 27 shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.
ANALYSIS
Sorokin was able to limit the damage to a Travis Konecny goal late in the second period. The 26-year-old Sorokin is now on a three-game winning streak, having allowed just five goals in that span. The Russian netminder improved to 10-7-5 with a 2.37 GAA and a .927 save percentage in 22 appearances. Semyon Varlamov will likely tend the twine in Tuesday's rematch with the Flyers, but another back-to-back Friday and Saturday should allow Sorokin to draw another start soon.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Sorokin has emerged as one of the NHL's most highly-anticipated prospects, regardless of position, over the past few years as he's absolutely dominated the KHL with CSKA Moscow. In 40 games with Moscow last season, the 2014 third-round pick registered a 26-10-3 record while posting an eye-popping 1.50 GAA and .935 save percentage. The 25-year-old Russian will finally be making his long-awaited voyage to North America in 2020-21, but he'll have to settle for a backup role behind Semyon Varlamov, at least to start the season. Coach Barry Trotz's defensively-sound system should make Sorokin's transition to the NHL a smooth one, and if he outperforms Varly early, Trotz likely won't hesitate to hand him the reins. Varlamov is still the far safer pick, but Sorokin's upside will be hard to pass up in the middle rounds of this year's fantasy drafts.
