Coach Dan Bylsma offered an effusive assessment of Zatkoff's performance in training camp "He's been spectacular. Prada Eyeglasses For Men He's worked hard. He's made some great saves" but acknowledged that he likely will carry a lighter workload than Vokoun would have.
"There will be a different approach, in terms of the schedule and the games for the goaltenders, based on the fact that it's Jeff Zatkoff and not Tomas Vokoun," Bylsma said. "However, in this schedule, we do have a lot of games back to back.
"Right now, I'm not thinking about my career or playing hockey," Vokoun said. "I'm more worried about long term health."
