Report: Philadelphia Flyers Looking For Goaltender

Monday February 27th, 2012

The Philadelphia Flyers are actively searching for a new No. 1 goaltender, according to The Fourth Period.

The Flyers, according to The Fourth Period, are looking at Nikolai Khabibulin (Oilers), Jean-Sebastien Giguere (Avalanche) and Ondrej Pavelec (Jets) and are willing to package goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and winger James van Riemsdyk. This past summer, the Flyers traded for and re-signed goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine-year, $51 million contract, but Bryzgalov has struggled, going 22-12-6 with a 2.82 goals-against average and .898 save percentage. Bobrovksy, who started 52 games for the Flyers last season, has also struggled, posting a .299 goals-against average and .900 save percentage.
