In the offseason NHL Rumors were circulating that Alexandar Georgiev was looking to be traded and a change of scenery would benefit him. Rumors have now started up again and teams are calling on his availability.
Frank Seravalli of The Daily Faceoff reports the Vegas Golden Knights have contacted the New York Rangers about a Alexandar Georgiev trade. If Robin Lehner remains sidelined by a suspected shoulder injury, Georgiev is a prime option for the Golden Knights.
Seravalli went on to say, the Rangers are believed to be open to moving him if they can find another veteran that they’d be comfortable with as an insurance policy on Vezina candidate Igor Shesterkin.
If Georgiev is traded, New York will look to Detroit’s Thomas Greiss or Vancouver’s Jaroslav Halak as a replacement.
