Hearing Bobrovsky to Columbus for draft picks. Working on details.
via Aaron Portzline tweet,
Have confirmed @DarrenDreger report of #CBJ trade for G Sergei Bobrovsky. Three draft picks going to Flyers, including No. 45 this year
added 1:32 PM: According to the Columbus Dispatch’s Portzline, the Blue Jackets may stick with “Bob” and Steve Mason as their goalies going forward:
“(Bobrovsky) has won in the league,” Howson said. “He had a great first season (2010-11), he’s won over 40 games in the league. I think he has the potential to be a very good NHL goalie. He’s still a young goalie. We now have two NHL goalies who have a chance to be No. 1 goaltenders, and we’re going to see how it plays out.”
Bobrovsky, 23, was 14-10-2 with the Flyers this season, sporting an .899 save percentage and a 3.02 goals-against average that were among the worst in the NHL, marginally better than Blue Jackets starter Steve Mason.
“Not great numbers,” Howson said, “but it’s understandable given the situation he was in. He was clearly the No. 2 goalie there, and (with Ilya Bryzgalov) that wasn’t going to change. He was great the first year and sort of surprised everybody. I think he has a chance to be a No. 1 goalie.”
