Alex Ovechkin, Gabriel Landeskog, and Dougie Hamilton lead the list of potential 2021 NHL free agents.
Over his 46 career appearances against Carolina, Lundqvist never lost more than two consecutive appearances in regulation to Carolina, his having lost consecutive games to the Hurricanes only three times in his career. In only one instance among those three did the consecutive losses in regulation come in a single season, and those occurred in his first two career appearances against Carolina, in his rookie 2005-2006 season, in November 2005 and March 2006.
The Vancouver Canucks signed former Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby to a two-year contract worth 4.3 million annually on the first day of free agency. With Jacob Markstrom leaving for a six-year, $36 million deal with the Calgary Flames, the team needed a goaltender that could potentially be a the 1A while Thatcher Demko becomes the 1B. They hopefully have that in Holtby. Holtby has developed a reputation for being one of the top net minders in the league over the past decade.
