NHL Rumors: 3 Teams Expected to Target Tristan Jarry This Offseason

Tristan Jarry is arguably the top pending UFA goaltender heading into this summer. If he elects to test the market, there will be several teams in play for his services. As a result, let's discuss three specific teams who are expected to target him. 

Los Angeles Kings: The Los Angeles Kings have found a short-term solution in net with Joonas Korpisalo. However, like Jarry, he is a pending UFA who can sign elsewhere this offseason. Therefore, if the Kings cannot keep Korpisalo around, they will surely make a push to bring in Jarry this summer. 

Seattle Kraken: Goaltending has been a complete disaster for the Seattle Kraken this season, but they still have managed to be a playoff team. However, poor goaltending is not a recipe for success in the long term, so they are likely to try to sign Jarry this offseason. 

Buffalo Sabres: The Buffalo Sabres have their goaltender of the future with Devon Levi, but it would not be a bad thing to bring in a veteran goalie to mentor him. Thus, Jarry on a short-term deal to Buffalo could make sense. This is especially so when noting that the Sabres are looking to be a playoff team next season, and their other options in net this season have struggled.
