Al Montoya traded to Islanders for Sixth Round Pick

New, comments

It seems that with all the goaltending prospects in the pipeline the Coyotes have decided that Al Montoya is no long a part of the Coyotes plans. The Islanders, desparate for anyone that can play goalie for them at this point, have reportedly sent a 6th round pick the Coyotes way in exchange for him. 

Seeing only sporatic playing time behind Matt Climie in San Antonio, Montoya was 11-8 with a 3.19 GAA and .891 sv% in 21 appearances.The move will make room for either Mark Visentin or Mike Lee to get some AHL starts next year too. Montoya will report to the AHL Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
