It seems like every season there’s one or two breakout goalies that can help make the difference between winning and losing when it counts the most. This season is no exception, and though John Gibson’s strong play is a surprise to no one, Andrew Hammond, G (L, 36 SV, 2 GA, .947%) has been a revelation.

Marc Methot re-signs; defensemen will come at a premium come deadline time

The NHL trade deadline is usually one of the most fun parts of the season.
