Potential goaltender targets for the Golden Knights next season

Jesse Granger of The Athletic: The Vegas Golden Knights are exempt from the Seattle expansion draft. Teams may try to use the Golden Knights to “park” players for the expansion draft, but the league has already said they’ll be watching to make sure it doesn’t happen.

The Golden Knights could look for players at next year’s trade deadline that come from teams who don’t want to lose those players for nothing in the expansion draft. Trades that could help them in the long-run.

Teams are only allowed to protect one goaltender. The Golden Knights might need another goaltender if Robin Lehner leaves in free agency this offseason. Marc-Andre Fleury has two years left on his deal and is 35-years old. Potential trade targets could include.

Thatcher Demko – Vancouver Canucks – Would be exposed for the expansion draft if the Canucks re-sign Jacob Markstrom to a long-term deal.

Matt Murray – Pittsburgh Penguins – The Penguins may decide to protect Tristan Jarry.

Antti Raanta – Arizona Coyotes – Would the Coyotes trade to a division rival?

Frederik Andersen – Toronto Maple Leafs – He’ll be a UFA after next season. The Leafs have Jack Campbell signed at $1.65 million through 2022. Could the Leafs decide to protect Campbell?

Pavel Francouz – Colorado Avalanche – The Avs may need to decide between Philipp Grubauer and Francouz.
