Agent: Nabokov will take a few days to consider future
Veteran goaltender Evgeni Nabokov needs about 72 hours to make a decision on his next career move, according to his agent.
Nabokov will take a few days to consider his future, Don Meehan told Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times.
The 39-year-old netminder was waived by the Lightning on Sunday and cleared waivers Monday.
He posted a goals-against average of 3.33 and a save percentage of .879 over 12 games in his first season with Tampa Bay, after three campaigns with the New York Islanders.
Nabokov is now eligible to be sent to the AHL's Syracuse Crunch.
