According to Ryan Dadoun of NBC Sports, Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard spent the 2013-2014 season dealing with knee issues and an additional hip injury. Howard was not able to play several games due to his injuries. Howard is hoping to be in better shape for this season and not be hindered by his injuries.

Howard, 30, had injured his knee in November, an MCL sprain, and then again in January, says Mike Halford of NBC Sports. As a result, he missed several games and was unable to keep his statistics in the same place as last season. Regarding last season, Howard spoke on the issue saying he needs to improve and be "a lot more consistent" than he had been this season.

His hopes are to be healthy enough to start 60 or more games this season, with his six-year contract worth $31.75 million. He finished this season with a 0.910 save percentage and a 2.66 GAA in 51 regular season games.
