Dallas Stars sign former Vezina Trophy winner Braden Holtby

Holtby invested last season with the Vancouver Canucks, with a 3.67 goals-against average and an.889 save portion over 21 games as Thatcher Demkos backup. The Canucks exposed him to the Seattle Kraken in the expansion draft, and when they d didnt lose (or dump) him that way they waived him to lead the way to buyout the second year of his two-year deal.
At his peak with the Washington Capitals, Holtby had a run of 3 straight seasons with more than 40 regular season wins. He won the Vezina Trophy as the leagues leading goaltender in 2016, and he led the league with nine nothings during the 2016-17 project. And he of course was a key cog in the Capitals go to the Stanley Cup in 2018.
But that peak is long gone. Over the last 2 seasons (69 video games), Holtby has a 3.28 GAA and an.895 save percentage.
With Braden Holtby in, what does that mean for Ben Bishop?
Anton Khudobin and Jake Oettinger are Dallas top two goaltender looking towards next season. Veteran Ben Bishop waived his no-move stipulation so destiny could leave him unprotected for the growth draft. He went through surgical treatment to fix a torn meniscus last October, and didnt go back to action the remainder of the season.
The condition of Bishops knee appears to still be a concern and a question mark for the Stars, to the point long-lasting IR might be an option. Holtby is more name than video game at this moment in his career, but Dallas has discovered an alternative to fill out their depth chart should Bishop continue to be not available into next season.

According to Darren Dreger of TSN, Dallas has actually agreed to terms on an one-year deal with Braden Holtby. At his peak with the Washington Capitals, Holtby had a run of 3 straight seasons with more than 40 routine season wins. Anton Khudobin and Jake Oettinger are Dallas top two goaltender looking toward next season.
