NHL Rumors: 3 Goalies Who Will Be Moved By Trade Deadline

The NHL's trade deadline is scheduled for late March and there's going to be a number of moves between now and then. These deals will include goaltenders and today we focus on three names you can expect to see moved from one team's crease to another.

Marc-Andre Fleury

The Flower isn't having the grandest time in Chicago as the Blackhawks struggled early on this season and haven't seemed to turn the corner just yet, even with a new message sender. Fleury's game isn't exactly where he wants it as he's sitting with a 9-10-2 record with a .913 save % and a 2.86 GAA. The Blackhawks sit 10 points out of a playoff spot heading into 2022 and look for the team to approach Fleury with some trade options as we creep closer to late March. The Edmonton Oilers and Detroit Red Wings are two teams to keep an eye on.

Joonas Korpisalo

The Blue Jackets made their commitment to Elvis Merzlikins earlier this season with his five-year $27 million deal and opened the door to moving Korpisalo out before this season's trade deadline. The 28-year-old has appeared in nine games this season, sitting with a 3-4-0 record, with a .891 save %. Certainly not numbers teams will be throwing top prospects out of the door for, but Korpisalo has shown over his career he's a capable starting netminder who is used to being in a tandem setting. There's going to be a ton of interest in him on the trade market and next summer when he hits the open market.

Alexandar Georgiev

The New York Rangers have been listening to trade offers all season for their backup netminder and that's going to continue as we creep closer to the trade deadline. There's no doubt Igor Shesterkin is the goalie of the future in the Big Apple. Georgiev sits with a 5-3-0 record and a respectable 2.87 GAA in 2021-22. He's a restricted free agent at season's end so any team that acquires the Russian netminder will be getting some team control. The Edmonton Oilers love Georgiev as do the Toronto Maple Leafs, certainly two teams to keep an eye on here.
