Ex-Bruins Goalie Signs With Another Team

Experienced NHL goalie Jaroslav Halak is on the verge of joining the Colorado Avalanche. This decision is driven by the injury sidelining Avalanche backup Pavel Francouz, who's dealing with a hip issue.

The Avalanche actively sought a seasoned backup, and Halak quickly emerged as the top choice.

NHL insider Frank Seravalli previously hinted at the team's hunt for an experienced netminder to support their starting goalie, Alexandar Georgiev. Adrian Dater, a reliable insider, also suggested the Avalanche's interest in Halak.

Czech reporter Tomas Prokop has now confirmed this development, with an official announcement from the Avalanche expected shortly.


Despite being 38, Halak showcased his NHL prowess last season with the New York Rangers, playing 25 games and maintaining solid stats, including a 2.72 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage.
