Top 3 Unrestricted Free Agent Goaltenders

With only four teams still busy vying for Lord Stanley's Cup, the other 90% of the league is fully focused on improving their teams for the 2023-24 season. Trades will be one order of the summer, but free agent signings will play a big role as well. 

With that, we take a look at the top unrestricted free agents available this offseason, starting between the pipes. 

Frederik Andersen

The 33-year-old netminder is having a tremendous NHL Playoffs run this year, showing once again that he can be a top option in goal for a team. Andersen has a 5-1 record with a 1.65 goals against average and .936 save percentage in seven game this postseason with the Carolina Hurricanes going into Game 3 of the Conference Finals. During the regular season, he went 21-11-1 with a 2.48 GAA and a .903 SV%, but struggled with injuries. The season before, he was spectacular, with a 2.17 GAA and a .922 SV%.

If he can stay healthy, any team signing him can at least expect a strong starting goaltender. 

Tristan Jarry

The Pittsburgh Penguins netminder hits the open market with solid value, though his numbers dipped a bit this past season. His save percentage (.909) and goals against average (2.90) both dropped below his career marks this year. He, too, faced some injury troubles this season, and there were reports earlier this year that Jarry is dealing with a “chronic” hip injury.

He has shown flashes of brilliance in the past, but consistency from year to year has been a bit of an issue. Buyer beware on a long-term deal.

Laurent Brossoit

For a backup goalie, it doesn't get much better than Brossoit in 2022-23. All the 29-year-old did was go 7-0-3 with a 2.17 GAA and a .927 SV% in the regular season, and was the Vegas Golden Knights' starter in the playoffs with a 5-2 mark before going down with an injury midway through the second round. 

Next up, we'll have a look at the top 3 unrestricted free agent defensemen this summer.
