Three goaltenders the Detroit Red Wings could potentially sign in 2020

The Detroit Red Wings are in the midst of a full-scale rebuild, and as such, there will likely continue to be moving parts both in and out of the franchise as contracts begin expiring.

One such contract belongs to that of goaltender Jimmy Howard, who is slated to become an unrestricted free-agent this summer. He’ll be 36 this March, and given his struggles this season, don’t be surprised to see new GM Steve Yzerman elect to not offer him a new extension.

There will be goaltenders hitting the free-agent market this summer that could be attractive options for the Red Wings.
