Washington Capitals star Braden Holtby is expected to enter free agency, according to general manager Brian MacLellan.
Holtby is coming off the final season of his five-year, $30.5million contract in Washington, where the goaltender helped the Capitals win the 2018 NHL Stanley Cup.
A five-time All-Star and 2016 Vezina Trophy winner, Holtby made 56 appearances in the regular season and playoffs in 2019-20 as the Capitals bowed out in the first round of the postseason.
« I would expect him to go to free agency, » MacLellan said on Tuesday. « The goalie market is probably a little unusually deep this year.
« I talked to his agent last week briefly about where he’s at and the kind of opportunities he’s looking for.
« I would assume he goes to free agency, and we’ll keep in contact with him throughout the free-agency period to see if he’s getting what he wants. »
