Observations

June 2018 – Georgiev was the mid-season beneficiary of the Rangers’ goaltending woes and took a happy advantage of his opportunity with the Blueshirts. In a ten-game spot-start audition alongside The King, he proved to be a competent backstop, and potential bridge to the Rangers future. Igor Shesterkin has long been foreseen as the heir to Hendrik Lundqvist, and though his development has been steady, the Rangers would be wise to make the transition more seamless by bridging the gap with an internal fix. Georgiev appears poised to sit in a ball-cap for the better part of the 2018-19 campaign, potentially starting between 20 and 30 NHL games. The deal should work well for both parties which will give the soon-to-be sophomore an opportunity to prove he is worthy of more than a pure backup role in the NHL. In the unexpected case that the Rangers do make a move on the free-agent goalie market, the waiver’s-exempt 22-year-old will be relegated to the Wolfpack for a year of development. Brayden Olafson
 

July 2017 – Georgiev signed a three-year entry-level two-way deal with the Rangers in July 2017 after an impressive showing at the Rangers annual development camp.  Georgiev is coming off an excellent 2016-17 season where he suited up for TPS in Finland’s Liiga.  In his first full pro season he posted a league best 1.70 GAA as well as 0.923 save % through 27 games.  The former WJC U-20 silver medalist will be battling for the #1 spot in Hartford this coming fall.   Geoff Kent
