Sometimes one season can change everything. After the shortened 2019-20 season, Prince Albert Raiders rookie goaltender Carter Serhyenko looked like he could be one of the top goalies of his draft year. At the time, he was just 17-years-old, meaning that he would have 2020-21 to improve his draft stock after posting an impressive 2.21 goals-against average (GAA) and a .916 save percentage (SV%) in 15 starts.
Unfortunately, this isn’t what happened. Perhaps it was the uncertainty of the season or a bit of regression in his game along with the entire team around him, but Serhyenko’s 2020-21 season was rough. In just 10 starts, he posted a 3.99 GAA and a .858 SV%.
