Every player on a hockey team has a certain job to do and the goalie probably has the most important one of them all; stop the puck. Trying to keep a puck out of the net is no easy job, but these goalies make it look easy.
Before NHL 21 released, EA Sports announced the top 10 goaltenders and their ratings for all to see and talk about before its release.
- Andrei Vasilevskiy – 91 OVR
- John Gibson – 90 OVR
- Tuuka Rask – 90 OVR
- Carey Price – 90 OVR
- Connor Hellebuyck – 90 OVR
- Ben Bishop – 89 OVR
- Frederik Anderson – 88 OVR
- Jacob Markstrom 88 OVR
- Branden Holtby – 88 OVR
- Robin Lehner 87 OVR
Andrei Vasilevskiy leads the top 10 goalies as the Tampa Bay Lightning netminder was an integral part in winning the 2020 Stanley Cup. John Gibson, Tuuka Rask, Carey Price, and Connor Hellebuyck round out the top 5 with 90 overall ratings.
Whether you agree with this list or not, these are the best goalies that are available in NHL 21 from a purely statistical perspective. Of course, veteran players in NHL 21 will consider other factors, such as stance and specific ratings for specific goalie skills.
Ratings can change over time and, who knows, someone not on the list may crack the top 10, although it’s unlikely. Until then, be sure to stay tuned to Guide Stash for more NHL 21 content.
