Despite Vejmelka's modest performance this season with a 3.50 GAA and .892 save percentage, teams desperate for goaltending solutions are eyeing him.

The 27-year-old Czech netminder has 3 years left on his deal with a $2.725 million annual cap hit which might make it a challenge for cap-strapped teams like the Edmonton Oilers for say.

Notably, the Carolina Hurricanes placed veteran goalie Antti Raanta on waivers, adding another layer to the goaltending landscape.
