NHL Rumors: 3 Atlantic Division Goalies Expected To Be Traded This Summer

Welcome to the latest series at NHLTR where we'll dive into each division across the NHL and examine the most likely trade candidates. Forwards, defensemen and goaltenders, you will see them all as it's expected to be a busy summer of movement across the league. This time around, let's showcase three goalies from the Atlantic division who are expected to be moved this summer:

Sergei Bobrovsky, Florida Panthers

The Florida Panthers tried to move Sergei Bobrovsky throughout the entire regular season but were unable to get any bites, they will try again this offseason. "Goalie Bob" has an expensive ticket at $10-million per season and while his regular season success has been there, Bobrovsky can't seem to get it done in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He holds a no-movement clause that turns into a 16-team no trade in 2024, so the Panthers may be in tough to find him a team he's interested in this summer. It won't be for a lack of trying.

Petr Mrazek, Toronto Maple Leafs

After having Frederik Andersen controlling their crease for years, now the Toronto Maple Leafs may need to find two new goalies as the team is trying to move Petr Mrazek and may lose Jack Campbell to free agency. As for Mrazek, he signed a three-year deal before last season for $3.8 million per season, a contract that's turned out to be a touchy subject for Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas. The 30-year-old netminder is going to be very hard to trade and expect to see the Leafs add a high-level prospect to sweeten the pot. They could use an extra $3.8 million this offseason. Mrazek holds a 10-team no trade clause and in 2021-22 appeared in 20 games, posting a 3.34 GAA and a .888 SV.%. The Buffalo Sabres, New Jersey Devils and Arizona Coyotes are three teams to watch as Dubas tries to move on from his mistake.

Jake Allen, Montreal Canadiens

If Jake Allen stayed healthy all of last season, he'd be playing for a different organization. The Montreal Canadiens were in talks throughout the season to move the veteran netminder and then injuries came out of nowhere to derail those plans. Allen has one season left on his deal, paying him $2.8 million, last season he recorded a 3.30 GAA and a .905 SV.%. While he's not the starting goalie who will save a franchise, he can provide veteran leadership and a solid 1-B option. Some teams to consider next season include the Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres.
