Rangers goaltender makes surprising move ahead of deadline

Published March 13, 2022 at 12:45

The National Hockey League's trade deadline is stressful on fans. Can you imagine how stressful it would be if you were a player going into the deadline knowing your chances of a change of scenery were almost certain? You'd have to imagine some players know their days on their current teams are numbered, and as such, they try to prepare for their impending move.

This is the situation Alexandar Georgiev finds himself in of the New York Rangers. He seemingly knows it's all but a forgone conclusion that he finds himself playing for a new team when the March 21st trade deadline passes. As such, he appears to be prepared. According to Emily Kaplan of ESPN, Georgiev has hired a new agent to help facilitate a possible deal. Gerry Johannson of TSC Hockey now represents him.

Georgiev, 26, has had a less than stellar season for New York, posting a .893 save percentage with a 3.15 goals-against average to go along with a 7-9-2 record. It's safe to say he might have worn out his welcome in the Big Apple as the team looks to move on from their underperforming backup netminder.

Opinion: Sometimes, playing in a big market like New York puts unjust pressure on players and goalies alike; maybe a change of scenery would be the best thing for Georgiev as he looks to find his game and return to form.
