Alexander Georgiev has requested a trade from the New York Rangers. This most likely means the team is bringing back Igor Shesterkin as the top option in net. Georgiev is 25, as is Shesterkin. They both want opportunities to play. Shesterkin is still on the market, but with this news coming out, it likely means we won’t be for much longer.
Georgiev’s preferred destination at this point is Carolina. However, Arizona and Edmonton must make quality offers in order to get him. Arizona traded Darcey Kuemper to Colorado and lost Antti Raanta to Carolina. Edmonton resigned Mike Smith and need a young goalie since Smith doesn’t have it anymore. With that addition and the addition Freddie Andresen, Georgiev wanting to go there is confusing. More to come when available.
