Dallas Stars trying to re-sign Anton Khudobin

  Dallas Stars trying to re-sign Anton Khudobin Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports that GM Jim Nill has reached out to pending free agent goaltender Anton Khudobin’s camp, letting them know that the team wants to re-sign him. LeBrun notes that the “feeling is mutual”. © Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports If you thought that Khudobin playing well and leading the Stars to the finals was just a miraculous bubble hockey story, you haven’t been paying attention. The 34-year-old goaltender has been one of the best tandem options in the league for years now, even leading the entire NHL in save percentage during the 2019-20 regular season.

Georgiev holds the Rangers franchise record for saves in a game which the team won (55 - February 10, 2019 vs. Toronto), and he also holds the franchise record for saves by a Rangers goaltender in his NHL debut (38 - February 22, 2018 at Montreal). He ranked second among NHL rookie goaltenders

The Rangers congratulate Alex Georgiev .N.Y. Post: Charles Wenzelberg. Georgiev was adamant that he doesn’t feel any more pressure to succeed in this situation, but he did admit it felt good to continue his dominance over the Islanders, having won two of three games against them last season while

The New York Rangers will be without Henrik Lundqvist in net for the first time in years and now have both of his replacements under contract. The team announced it agreed to terms with Alexandar Georgiev on a new contract, which CapFriendly reports is a two-year deal that carries an average annual value of $2.425M.

Georgiev, 24, has more NHL experience than his crease partner Igor Shesterkin but not much. The undrafted goaltender has appeared in 77 games over the last three seasons, posting mostly excellent results whenever given an opportunity. He has a .913 save percentage and 35-31-7 record, posting four shutouts and even a 55-save performance against the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2019.

Blackhawks interested in Penguins' Matt Murray?

  Blackhawks interested in Penguins' Matt Murray? Murray is coming off the worst statistical season of his career as he managed just a .899 save percentage in 38 games (all starts).The 26-year-old is set to become a restricted free agent with arbitration eligibility next week, and in a recent column, Garrioch noted that there’s a sense that Murray’s preference might be to go through that process and become eligible for unrestricted free agency next offseason.  While the acquiring team could certainly try to sign him to a new deal, that particular approach won’t help his trade value, which may not be all that high anyway given the other options available in trades and free agency.

It didn't look like Alexandar Georgiev was going to remain with the Rangers , but things have now changed. Except for the most technical definition, it was Georgiev , not Lundqvist, who emerged as the second goaltender in the three-goaltender squeeze.

Russia's goalie Alexander Georgiev and Finland's Miska Siikonen in action during the 2016 IIHF World Junior Ice Hockey Championship final match between Finland and Russia in The New York Rangers have signed free agent goaltender Alexander Georgiev to a three- year , entry-level contract.

The young tandem will be incredible to watch develop with a Rangers team that is turning the corner toward contention, and both will be protected from the Seattle expansion draft. Shesterkin is not eligible for selection thanks to his limited North American experience, while Georgiev can now be the goaltender the team protects, exposing third-string Keith Kinkaid in the process (a key reason why Kinkaid was given a two-year deal).

Importantly, Georgiev will also not be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this deal. Instead, he will once again be a restricted free agent with arbitration rights, a process he elected this offseason as well. Georgiev’s hearing that was originally scheduled for Oct. 31 will no longer be necessary.

Senators sign defenseman Josh Brown to two-year, $2.4M deal

  Senators sign defenseman Josh Brown to two-year, $2.4M deal Brown, 26, is expected to basically be a replacement in Ottawa for the outgoing Mark Borowiecki, bringing the same physicality to a group of defensemen that already has plenty of skill. The former Panther has scored just 10 points in 96 career games but stands 6-5 and is a strong shot-blocker. Ottawa already has players like Thomas Chabot and Erik Brannstrom to carry the offensive burden on defense, though Brown could very well be asked to play more than the 13 minutes he usually received in Florida. He also will serve as a leader under head coach D.J.

Not only will the Rangers have a strong tandem in 2020-21, but they are also only paying a total of $3.35M for the pair of goaltenders. That will change slightly with Shesterkin’s restricted free agent status next offseason, but given he won’t be eligible for arbitration they should have a window here of very inexpensive, but very productive, goaltending.

Rangers could move newly-extended Tony DeAngelo to bolster left side .
The New York Rangers locked up restricted free agent defenseman Anthony DeAngelo to a two-year pact Thursday, making a lopsided group of blueliners on the right side.With Jacob Trouba, Fox and DeAngelo on the right side, the Rangers would be better off if one player moves to the left, which isn’t as strong with Jack Johnson, Ryan Lindgren and Brendan Smith leading the way, not exactly what you’re looking for on one side. The Rangers then might have an opening to bring in top prospect Nils Lundqvist, the 28th overall pick in 2018, to join the team’s top six after his SHL season ends in early March, although they would still have to convince him to sign his entry-level deal.
