Trade Watch: 3 Goalies Expected to be Moved in 2022-23

The NHL's trade market has been a tough slow to this point of the season, however with the calendar turning to December, things should be heating up very soon. In particular, this season expect to see a number of goaltenders moved, as playoff-bound teams try to secure some more depth. Here's three goalies who have been linked to trades so far this season:

James Reimer, San Jose Sharks

Reimer is one of the veterans on the block this season as the Sharks are rebuilding and expected to sell off their rentals. Reimer has some Stanley Cup Playoff experience and has been putting up solid numbers on bad teams for several seasons. So far, the LA Kings appear to be the favorite to land Reimer.

Joonas Korpisalo, Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets are heading for the NHL's Draft Lottery next spring and are expected to make several moves before the trade deadline. Goaltender Joonas Korpisalo is someone to keep an eye on as he's a pending free agent who is very likely to be moved this season. The team has showcased Daniil Tarasov and the 23-year-old performed well in his seven games, posting a .912 Sv.%. This essentially spelled the end of Korpisalo, and now the team hopes with some more playing time, his game will improve so they can get a decent return in any deal.

Craig Anderson, Buffalo Sabres

Speaking of veteran depth, 41-year-old Craig Anderson of the Buffalo Sabres will be available before the trade deadline this season. At $1.5 million against the cap, Anderson is affordable and with his steady play this season, there certainly should be a market for his services. Anderson has recorded a 2.87 GAA and a .916 Sv.% to this point this season and has been recently linked to become the backup of the New York Rangers.
