The experienced NHL goaltender Jaroslav Halak is on the verge of inking a contract with the Colorado Avalanche.
This move comes as the Avalanche's backup goalie, Pavel Francouz, grapples with a lingering injury stemming from an offseason hip problem. Recent reports suggest that Francouz's recovery may extend into a long-term absence.
Frank Seravalli, a prominent NHL insider, shared last week that the Avalanche were actively seeking a seasoned backup netminder to provide support to their starting goaltender, Alexandar Georgiev. Halak has emerged as the prime candidate to fill this role, a development confirmed by Adrian Dater, an insider closely following the Avalanche, as well as Czech-based reporter Tomas Prokop. The Avalanche organization is expected to make an official announcement regarding Halak's signing within the coming days.
