Korpisalo's first half earned him a spot on the NHL All-Star team, but his knee injury in late December sidelined him for 24 games. That opened the door for rookie Elvis Merzlikins to also stake his claim for the Blue Jackets' starting job.
From Finland, Korpisalo has a 19-12-5 record, 2.60 goals-against average, .911 save percentage and two shutouts in 37 appearances this season. A third-round pick by Columbus in the 2012 draft, Korpisalo is 60-43-14 record in 127 career NHL games.
