Trade brewing in Detroit due to unique goalie situation

A deal on the horizon?



The Carolina Hurricanes are in need of goaltending help, as it was announced recently that starter Frederik Andersen will be out of the lineup indefinitely as he deals with complications from blood clotting. The good news is that it sounds as though the team caught the ailment in time before it became a serious problem for the Danish net minder. 

That leaves the Hurricanes with Antti Raanta and Pyotr Kochetkov in net, while they've also been linked to veteran Jaroslav Halak; though no deal has been signed. Could they be looking to another team in the Eastern Conference for assistance? 

According to NHL Insider Pierre LeBrun, the Hurricanes are reportedly keeping an eye on the Detroit Red Wings, who are rolling with a trio of goaltenders in Ville Husso, James Reimer and Alex Lyon. Additionally, the Canes are reported to be looking at the exact same situation with the Montreal Canadiens, who feature Jake Allen, Cayden Primeau and Sam Montembeault. 

As far as the Red Wings are concerned, only Husso and Reimer have been getting starts between the pipes, while Alex Lyon has yet to appear for them this season. Meanwhile, the Habs have mostly been going with the Allen and Montembault duo, while Primeau has appeared in one game.
