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. Read Past Outlooks

Sorokin came off the bench to stop 19 of 24 shots in an 8-0 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 5 on Monday.
ANALYSIS
The game had already gotten away from the Islanders when Sorokin relieved starter Semyon Varlamov with 4:33 left in the first period and the Lightning on top 3-0. It appeared for a moment early in the second frame that Varlamov would have to re-enter the game, but Sorokin stayed between the pipes after being shaken up by a puck that hit his mask. The 25-year-old Sorokin is 4-1 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 2.79 GAA and .922 save percentage.
