The New Jersey Devils, on the brink of being a serious Stanley Cup contender, are reportedly in the market to strengthen their goaltending roster.

Devils Eyeing Top Goaltenders to Bolster Stanley Cup Bid

The Devils have assembled a formidable lineup, featuring elite centers, outstanding wingers, a top-tier defenseman, and a deep prospect pool. However, their Achilles' heel has been inconsistent goaltending, an issue they're now looking to address.

Hockey analyst Elliotte Friedman noted the Devils' active search for a reliable goaltender:

«I'm really curious to see what they do in goal here, I think they've been looking around, I don't think there is anything imminent or anything, but I think they are calling teams to find out asking prices on certain goalies.»

According to NHL Trade Rumours, three goalies are currently topping the Devils' interest list: Stanley Cup champion Jake Allen, the promising Carter Hart, and Yaroslav Askarov, a former 11th overall pick.

NHL Trade Rumours states:

"The New Jersey Devils are at a pivotal point in their season. Their pursuit of a reliable goaltender is not just about filling a position; it's about making a strategic move that could redefine their future. Whether it's Allen, Hart, or Asksrov, the decision they make could have a lasting impact on their trajectory in the league."

Acquiring any of these goalies would represent a significant upgrade for the Devils. The cost of such an upgrade will be substantial, but the necessity of this move for the team's Stanley Cup ambitions makes it a compelling consideration.
