3 Options Kings Could Acquire To Address Goalie Problems

The Los Angeles Kings are actively exploring ways to address their early-season goaltending issues, with three potential candidates: Cayden Primeau, Felix Sandstrom, and Jaroslav Halak.

Cayden Primeau and Felix Sandstrom offer youthful promise and potential.

Primeau, hailing from Montreal, has shown glimpses of his talent, but has struggled at the NHL level, posting a .871 SV% and 4.11 GAA across 21 games.

On the other hand Sandstrom, currently with the Philadelphia Flyers, could be a valuable addition with continued development. He holds an .887 SV% and 3.62 GAA across 25 games over his two-year career.

These young goaltenders present the Kings with an opportunity to invest in long-term solutions for their goaltending needs.

On the other hand, the Kings could opt for experience and stability by pursuing the seasoned veteran Jaroslav Halak, who is available in the free-agent market.

Over his 17-year career, the 38-year-old Halak holds an impressive .915 SV%, 2.50 GAA, 53 shutouts, and a 295-189-69 record over 581 games played.

Halak's NHL experience and proven track record could provide immediate support and mentorship to the Kings' goaltending corps.
