With the NHL Draft happening soon, it is time to fully dive into some last minute ideas for the Colorado Avalanche to consider. One of those ideas, is the thought of what to do with the goaltending position, and if they should use their upcoming draft to get their guy, for now or in the future.

Alexandar Georgiev has shown every possible sign that he should be the guy the Avs rely on going forward. But, it begs the question of whether or not they should supplement him with a backup that will both support and motivate him.

Here are three names that may get their name called by the Avalanche in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft.

Landon Miller

If the Avalanche should decide to go the goaltender route with their 24th selection of the draft, Landon Miller could very well get the nod. After playing the last two seasons for the Soo Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League, he has proven enough to be a high-ranking goaltending prospect in the eyes of many scouts.

Miller had his first full season with the Greyhounds last season, and he showed a lot of potential with a 17-6 record in 30 games played. He saved .889 percent of the shots he faced and allowed a goals-against-average of 2.79, good enough for the third-best in the OHL.

At 6'4", he is among the taller goaltenders coming out of this year's draft. That is a good thing, as it gives him an edge to make more desperate saves with his longer body. As the sixth-best goaltender on NHL Central Ranking's North American goalie list, he may still be available at #24.
