[Report] Ilya Bryzgalov to test free agency

Recommended Posts

The Pioneer Press is reporting that Ilya Bryzgalov will not return to the Minnesota Wild for the 2014-15 season. That would mean more options for the Canucks if they decide to sign a goaltender via FA:

After negotiating the NHL's most fluid goaltending situation last season, the Wild appear to be going with the same cast in 2014-15.

General manager Chuck Fletcher said Friday he expects Niklas Backstrom, Darcy Kuemper and Josh Harding to be healthy and ready to compete for playing time when training camp begins in September.

All were at one time the No. 1 goaltender last season, and none finished the season there.

Harding didn't play after Dec. 31 because of syptoms related to multiple sclerosis, with which he was diagnosed in Fall 2012. Backstrom started the season with an abdominal injury that finally ended his season in a March surgery. Kuemper, a revelation as a rookie, suffered two concussions, the second in the first round of the playoffs.

He finished the season backing up Ilya Bryzgalov, who won't be back.
