Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy will be out of the lineup for an unknown amount of time with a fractured left foot, according to multiple reports.
Vasilevskiy, 24, finished third in Vezina Trophy voting last season and is already putting together another solid campaign this year. In 13 starts this season he has a 9-3-1 record with a .927 save percentage and 2.27 goals-against average. The Lightning currently sit in first place in the Eastern Conference with a 12-5-1 record and 25 points.
With Vasilevskiy sidelined, the majority of the Lightning’s starts will go to 26-year-old Louis Domingue. In five starts this season, Domingue has a 3-2-0 record with a .887 save percentage and 3.43 goals-against average.
To backup Domingue, the Lightning have recalled 27-year-old Eddie Pasquale from the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL. Pasquale has never played an NHL game, but has a 4-2-0 record this season with the Crunch.
