#8 Braden Holtby – Dallas Stars
2021-22 Stats: .913 SV%, 2.78 GAA, 10-10-1
Last Contract: $2 million AAV
Potential Next Season: Back-up Goalie/Tandem Goaltender
Braden Holtby had a bit of a bounce back season with the Dallas Stars this year with some decent numbers.
He did suffer a lower-body injury though which kept him out of the last 26 games of the season.
Like Halák, he could be another reasonably priced back-up option. He’d be able to fill in for a decent amount of games in a back-up role and may even be able to support a younger goalie in a tandem.
He did suffer a lengthy injury last season, but it was the first major injury of his career, so there’s no reason to believe he won’t come back from it.
