Source: Flyers interested in Jaroslav Halak
The Flyers’ goalie vacancy has taken yet another twist with a name not previously in the mix.
According to an NHL source here at this weekend’s NHL draft, the Flyers have made some inquires with St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong about the availability of Jaroslav Halak, who lost the starter’s job to Brian Elliott this past season.
The 28-year-old Slovakian has one year left on his current contract with a $3.75 million salary cap hit.
St. Louis isn’t sure about what Halak’s price tag will be on re-signing. Even more difficult for the Blues is that Elliott also has a year left and is making far less money — $1.8 million — but will be seeking starter’s coinage next summer.
