NHL Rumors: 3 Goaltenders Likely Being Traded this Summer

The upcoming offseason has the makings to be one of the craziest we've seen in the past 10 years with all the expected player movement. There's going to be a number of changes across the league and for today's piece, we zone in on goaltenders who are likely to be traded this summer. Here's a few to watch out for:

John Gibson, Anaheim Ducks

The very latest is that the Anaheim Ducks are looking to cut some payroll and they've had conversations with John Gibson and his camp and belief is, there's a mutual agreement in place to move the netminder. Gibson is 29 years old and has four seasons left on his contract, paying him $6.4 million. The veteran goalie has a 10-team no-trade clause and can't necessarily be moved at will. So far, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings, Buffalo Sabres and Ottawa Senators remain possible destinations.

Mackenzie Blackwood, New Jersey Devils

It's crazy how fast a goalie's career can change and that could be said for Mackenzie Blackwood of the Devils. He went from being the goalie of the future to third-stringer watching Akira Schmid take over in New Jersey. Blackwood is 26 and heading for restricted free agency this summer. With his age, potential and coming off a $2.8 million contract, Blackwood is a prime trade candidate regardless of what happens the rest of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Devils. 

Marc-Andre Fleury, Minnesota Wild

The Flower has confirmed next season is likely his last and while Fleury has also mentioned he'd like to stay in Minnesota, the reports are already starting to surface about the Pittsburgh Penguins making a run. At this point, it's unlikely as the veteran future hall of famer is the least likely of these three goalies to be moved. If a deal does happen, look for the Penguins to try and write the storybook ending to Fleury's magical career.
