Are the Devils interested in goaltenders Jack Campbell and Alexandar Georgiev?
Larry Brooks of the New York Post: There has been lots of talk from multiple sources that the New Jersey Devils will be interested in Toronto Maple Leafs pending UFA goaltender Jack Campbell if he isn’t signed by the Leafs before free agency opens.
One source said they’ve tried to acquire his rights from the Maple Leafs.
The Devils would then try to move Mackenzie Blackwood.
If New York Rangers goaltender Alexander Georgiev becomes a UFA, the Devils could be interested in him. Georgiev would likely be used in tandem as opposed to a No. 1. The Rangers likely wouldn’t take to trade Georgiev to the Devils without overpaying for him. would be interested Michael McLeod if the Devils wanted to overpay.
