Earlier this summer, the New York Rangers gave a one-season contract to veteran goaltender, Jonathan Quick, who will earn a salary of $925,000 this season.

Thanks to his incredible experience in the NHL, many observers believed he would be the perfect backup goalie to help the "Blueshirts" achieve success this year.

However, in the past few hours, surprising news has emerged. Indeed, the Rangers' management has called up young 21-year-old netminder, Dylan Garand, who could potentially serve as Igor Shesterkin's backup.

This situation raises a lot of questions, especially knowing that Jonathan Quick had a challenging preseason with a goals-against average of 6.00 and a save percentage of .821 in two games.

Some even suggest the possibility that the Rangers might put the 37-year-old goalie on waivers tomorrow afternoon. Let's just say that if such an outcome occurs, the Tampa Bay Lightning's general manager, Julien Brisebois, might be very attentive, as he's still looking for a goaltender to fill in for the loss of Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Since joining the NHL, Jonathan Quick has won the Stanley Cup three times, accumulating an impressive record of 375 wins, 274 losses, and 84 overtime defeats. He also boasts a goals-against average of 2.47 and a save percentage of .911.

He could be a very intriguing option to help out the Lightning for a few weeks. One thing's for sure, this is a story to follow closely over the next few hours.
