REPORT: Jaroslav Halak's Next Team is Likely Known

Published September 19, 2023 at 1:55 PM


The Colorado Avalanche are in search of a new goaltender following the loss of their second-choice goalie. Reliable sources, including Frank Seravalli and Adrian Dater, indicate that the team is close to securing the services of veteran player, Jaroslav Halak. An official statement from the Avalanche is anticipated shortly.

Can Georgiev Be #1 In Colorado?

With the absence of Francouz, the team's reliance on Georgiev has heightened, pressing the need for another goalie. While his performance during the regular season was enough to ensure they made the playoffs, Colorado would ultimately be eliminated by the Seattle Kraken in the 2nd round.

Halak's Experience Makes Him A Frontrunner

At 38, Halak emerges as a prime candidate. Over seven teams and almost 600 games, he still maintains a .915 SV%. He is notably celebrated for his 2010 playoff performance with the Montreal Canadiens. Just the previous season, Halak displayed commendable skills with the Rangers, recording a 2.72 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage across 25 games. It's worth mentioning that other goalies like Casey DeSmith from Montreal and Dan Vladar from Calgary have also been associated with a potential move to Colorado.
