5 Options Lightning Could Look To For Goaltending Help

The Tampa Bay Lightning are actively scouting the waiver wire for potential goaltending reinforcements as they prepare for the upcoming NHL season.

With their goaltending needs in mind, the Lightning have a list of notable goaltenders they could consider if they become available:

Alex Lyon (Detroit Red Wings): Alex Lyon, currently with the Detroit Red Wings, is a potential candidate for the Lightning to bolster their goaltending depth. His availability on waivers could be an opportunity worth exploring.

Last year, the 30-year-old posted a .912 SV%, 2.89 GAA, one shutout, and a 9-4-2 record with the Florida Panthers.

Martin Jones (Toronto Maple Leafs): Martin Jones, a seasoned goaltender with the Toronto Maple Leafs, might catch the Lightning's attention if he becomes available on waivers. Tampa Bay could benefit from his experience and depth in goal.

Last year, the 33-year-old posted a .886 SV%, 2.99 GAA, three shutouts, and a 27-13-3 record with the Seattle Kraken.

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (Buffalo Sabres): Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, with the Buffalo Sabres, is another name to watch. While the Sabres may have cap space for three goalies, the Lightning could be interested if he becomes available, given his potential.

Last season, the former top prospect held a .891 SV%, 3.61 GAA, and a 32-17-11 record.

David Rittich (Los Angeles Kings): David Rittich, currently with the Los Angeles Kings, is an experienced goaltender who could provide depth and competition in Tampa Bay's goaltending ranks.

Last season, the 31-year-old posted a .901 SV%, 2.67 GAA, and an 18-9-8 record with the Winnipeg Jets.

Malcolm Subban (St. Louis Blues): Malcolm Subban, part of the St. Louis Blues organization, might be worth monitoring as a potential addition to the Lightning's goaltending depth.

Over his seven-year career, Subban holds a .898 SV%, 3.10 GAA, three shutouts, and a 36-33-9 record.

The Lightning's decision to pursue any of these goaltenders would hinge on their specific needs and the availability of these players on waivers. Photo Credit: Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports
