Kari Lehtonen, our 57th ranked goalie, is best suited to be a primary backup. We project he will end up with the Columbus Blue Jackets because they could use a player of this quality to play goalie. The Blue Jackets currently have only 1 healthy goalies, and none are rated better than Lehtonen.
The Blue Jackets currently have no goalies under contract beyond the 2022 season, so Lehtonen could see a potential long term contract with the team.
