The NHL Network continued their weekly rankings of the best players at each position and on Sunday, it was time for the top-ten goaltenders in the league ahead of the 2023-24 season.

This year's top-ten goaltending list from the NHL Network includes a ton of talent, as it always does, and features Thatcher Demko of the Vancouver Canucks. But is he too low on this list?

Thatcher Demko comes in at number 10 on the NHL Network's list and is behind others such as Filip Gustavsson of the Minnesota Wild and Alexandar Georgiev of the Colorado Avalanche. No disrespect to either of those two goaltenders, they're both fantastic, but Thatcher Demko should definitely be ahead of them on this list.

Let's take a look at the full list from the NHL Network!


1. Andrei Vasilevskiy - Tampa Bay Lightning.
2. Igor Shesterkin - New York Rangers.
3. Ilya Sorokin - New York Islanders.
4. Connor Hellebuyck - Winnipeg Jets.
5. Juuse Saros - Nashville Predators.
6. Linus Ullmark - Boston Bruins.
7. Jake Oettinger - Dallas Stars.
8. Alexandar Georgiev - Colorado Avalanche.
9. Filip Gustavsson - Minnesota Wild.
10. Thatcher Demko - Vancouver Canucks.

Demko was limited to 32 games during the 2022-23 season, mainly due to dealing with a groin injury that caused him to miss over two months. In those 32 games, Demko had a record of 14-14-4 with a 3.16 goals against average, a .901 save percentage and one shutout. The 27-year-old has three years remaining on his contract with a cap hit of $5 million.
