Igor Shesterkin: Ice Hockey Goaltender, Wife, Family, Injury Update
Ice Hockey Goaltender:
Shesterkin stayed down on the ice and had to be helped off as he avoided putting weight on the leg. He stopped all 19 shots he faced after entering Friday with a 12-3-2 record and .935 save percentage. Backup goalie Alexandar Georgiev came on to replace him, making nine saves to secure the win.
“It’s never easy for a goalie to come in like that,” Adam Fox said. “But I thought we did a good job trying to keep them to the outside, and when they got some good chances, Georgie came up big for us.”
Igor Shusterkin is dating his girlfriend Anna. Since the two are not married, she is not his wife at the time of publication.
Shesterkin’s partner Anna is a popular social media influencer and has over 272K followers on her Instagram handle. Her account is full of stunning pictures of her in some of the most fascinating places.

Igor Shesterkin has not shared many details about his family. He once shared a picture with his parents and captioned the picture as “Dear parents”. He has a sister named Lena Shesterkin and they share a great bond.
In 2018, he posted a picture with his sister and said, “The time spent with family is priceless.”
He was injured in the third round of the game. It is believed that he got injured when he saved the write-blocker. There was a puck in front of him and as he scrambled near the crease, Igor spread across the ice.
He had difficulty getting back up and had to leave the game with 14:52 remaining. However, the Rangers head coach said that his injury is not as bad as it seems.
