New York Acquires Al Montoya For Sixth Round Pick

New York has acquired goaltender Al Montoya from the Phoenix Coyotes, for a 6th round pick in the 2011 draft here and will report to Bridgeport.

Al Montoya has been struggling along statistically in the AHL.

Montoya is a restricted free agent and may well require waivers to be recalled to the NHL.

The standings suggest unless Edmonton wants Montoya, it's not an issue.

NYIFC Comments:
Maybe Cablevision has some of those marketing signs for Montoya left over when he was drafted sixth overall?

He is heading for Bridgeport (for whatever reasons he was not San Antonio's starter/injury/beaten out) it should make for fun interviews with Rick DiPietro after they fought if they share a locker room by the end of this season.

Personally, I would go with Koskinen and Lawson regardless. Koskinen is not some eighteen year old prospect, he is twenty two years old and the first goalie taken in his draft class.
