DONE DEAL: Colorado Avalanche & New York Rangers Pull Off Goalie Trade

The Colorado Avalanche have wasted no time trying to fill out their roster to run it back next season as the team has acquired goaltender Alexandar Georgiev from the New York Rangers.

This trade comes on the heels of Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic talking contract extension with Darcy Kuemper, so all signs are pointing to that conversation not going so well for the Avs and a new direction was quickly found.

Georgiev is 26, and a pending restricted free agent in need of a new contract. He appeared in 33 regular season games last season, posting a 2.92 GAA and in two Stanley Cup Playoff games, was spectacular,  recording a .935 save %. Interesting times as this is shaping up to be one of the craziest offseasons in recent memory.
