Sorry I’m late with this one:
Sounds like Calvin Pickard is joining the #RedWings on a two-year deal. He’s expected to compete with Jonathan Bernier in training camp to back up Jimmy Howard.— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) June 30, 2019
Pickard is still 27, and I’m gathering that he’ll start for the Griffins. Per TSN:
The 27-year-old split the 2018-19 season between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Arizona Coyotes.
In 17 games with the two teams, he posted a 4-6-2 record with a 3.86 goals against average and .875 save percentage.
The Moncton, New Brunswick native has spent time with the Colorado Avalanche and Toronto Maple Leafs over the course of his five-year NHL career.
As The Athletic’s Max Bultman reports, Filip Larsson knew this past week that he was going to have competition in GR:
