NHL free agency 2018: Top 5 UFA goaltenders

  NHL free agency 2018: Top 5 UFA goaltenders There are several options this summer for teams seeking backup goaltenders.There are few, if any, No. 1 goaltending spots open in the NHL -- the Islanders, perhaps? -- which is a good thing for NHL clubs because there is not much high-end help with this year's list of unrestricted free agent goalies full of 1B or back-up options.

In fact, he has received close to 10 teams checked in on the 32-year-old netminder, according to Fox Sports’ Andy Strickland. The Athletic’s Pierre LeBrun While the Blues would undoubtedly like to bring Hutton back with the inconsistencies that starter Jake Allen has had over the past two years, the

With goaltending at a premium this season as several teams are still in need of starting help, St. Louis Blues unrestricted free agent Carter Hutton has received quite a bit of interest. In fact, he has received close to 10 teams checked in on the 32-year-old netminder, according to Fox Sports’ Andy Strickland. The Athletic’s Pierre LeBrun adds that Hutton has heard from eight teams and will take the next few days to cut that list down and expand contract discussions.

The Athletic’s Craig Custance writes that the Detroit Red Wings, Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins are definitely interested. NHL.com’s Tom Gulitti adds that the Islanders would be a good fit as new head coach Barry Trotz knows him well from their days in Nashville. Even NHL.com’s Joe Yerdon suggested that the Buffalo Sabres could be interested in the former UMass-Lowell goalie. Hutton is the top free agent goaltender on the market. The veteran has been an excellent back-up goalie over the past several years and played the most minutes since the 2013-14 season. He posted a 2.09 GAA and a .931 save percentage in 32 appearances.

Ovechkin received 13 of 18 1st-place votes for Conn Smythe

Carter Hutton , however, is coming off a fantastic year and is limited only by sample size. So I was happy to see Pierre LeBrun reporting the Isles had shown interest in Hutton : I believe by Monday morning that list had been cut down to six teams and likely in two groups, teams offering a solid No

LeBrun believes Hutton has cut the original eight clubs down to six and separated those teams into two groups: those offering him a backup position and those willing to ride him as their No. 1. The Islanders, Sabres, and potentially the Hurricanes (who still have Scott Darling under contract) could

While the Blues would undoubtedly like to bring Hutton back with the inconsistencies that starter Jake Allen has had over the past two years, the team is not likely to offer the term that Hutton and his representatives would be asking for. Custance adds the team is unlikely willing to offer more than two years. Strickland said that he is likely looking for a three-year deal, possibly a similar deal to the three-year, $10M deal that Philipp Grubauer inked Saturday with the Colorado Avalanche. The Blues have top goaltending prospect Ville Husso, their goaltender of the future. Husso, who has already played two full seasons in the AHL, is no more than one year away, so signing Hutton to a three-year deal would affect Husso’s development. Allen has three more years remaining on his deal at $4.35M AAV and would be difficult to move on from at this point in time.

NHL.com’s Lou Korac reports that St. Louis general manager Doug Armstrong said they have talked to Hutton, but are fully aware and have a plan in place if Hutton opts to leave the Blues.

The Massachusetts woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging the suicide of her boyfriend in a series of text messages is appealing her conviction, arguing in documents filed last week that prosecutors “cherry-picked” texts. Michelle Carter, 21, was sentenced in 2017 to 15-months in jail after the July 2014 suicide of Conrad Roy III. He was 18 at the time and she was 17. The judge suspended the sentence pending Carter’s appeal.
