NHL Trade Rumors: With Ullmark dealt, 3 goalies who could be traded next

The NHL trade market has been active early and often this offseason and more specifically, there's been multiple starting goaltenders changing teams. The musical chairs are expected to continue.

With the 2024 NHL Draft and free agency around the goalie, watch for several more goalies to be moved including the following netminders:

Filip Gustavsson, Minnesota Wild

The Wild don't have much for cap space because of $14 million in dead cap space and will need to make a move from a position of strength and that's in their crease. Filip Gustavsson appears to be the odd man out as Marc-Andre Fleur begins his final season and top prospect Jesper Wallstedt is ready for prime time and comes in a lot cheaper than Gustavsson on the cap. The Swedish netminder could help Wild GM Bill Guerin land a top-four defenseman and he'll certainly be looking to do so over the next couple of weeks.

Adin Hill, Vegas Golden Knights

The Golden Knights have several pending free agents on their roster and sound like they have interest in trying to retain at least one of their big-name forwards, which means they will need to get creative to create some cap space. Vegas only has $1.1 million available at the moment a could look to move on from Adin Hill who is set to earn $4.9 million next season. We've seen Vegas trade Marc-Andre Fleury after he won the Vezina, so moving on from Hill, with a Stanley Cup ring in his back pocket should be considered light work.

John Gibson, Anaheim Ducks

There's lots of speculation growing that the Detroit Red Wings are making a strong push to acquire Gibson from the Ducks. Steve Yzerman and Pat Verbeek have a very strong relationship and could certainly leverage this during trade talks. Gibson has three seasons left on his contract at $6.4 million and does hold a modified no-trade list that includes 10 teams. The Wings have the money to fit Gibson in and the assets to make a deal work, certainly something to watch early on this summer.
