It's no longer a secret to anyone, Kent Hughes is currently shopping around to trade one of his goaltenders.

It's also becoming increasingly evident that the two goalies that the General Manager of the Canadiens is trying to offer to other NHL teams are, of course, Cayden Primeau and Jake Allen. In the case of the Jake, he almost ended up with the Edmonton Oilers, but due to the recent success of the Alberta team, the situation there has changed.
Even Elliotte Friedman confirmed it a few days ago.
"At one point this year, I really believed Jake Allen would be traded to Edmonton, but now I am not convinced that will happen."

That said, as reported by Marqueur.com, even if the Oilers have changed their minds, other teams might need reinforcement in goal, and according to Friedman, one team in particular is looking for a goaltender.
Via his account X, the insider mentioned that Rob Blake, the GM of the Los Angeles Kings, would be very active in adding reinforcement in goal, and Friedman believes that Jake Allen could very well end up in California by the trade deadline of March 8th.
"I think they're going to add a goaltender, really. I think they're going to add a goalie, whether it's Allen or someone else, I think they're going to add a goalie."

After having an excellent start to the season, the Kings have been struggling for about a month, winning only two of their last 14 games.
As for the Kings' situation in goal, it's not catastrophic, but with the recent underperformance of the team's number one goalie, Cam Talbot, it's logical to think that Rob Blake would want to add a bit more depth to that position.
It remains to be seen if the Canadiens' goaltender will be the chosen one of the former NHL star defenseman.
