Scott Wedgewood is another Stars player who could potentially be leaving Dallas this offseason.

The veteran netminder hasn't exactly been the most reliable backup to Jake Oettinger, posting rather pedestrian numbers during the regular season. While Wedgewood's 16-7-5 record and 2.85 goals-against average are solid, they're byproducts of the team around him.

His .899 save percentage shows a lack of consistency — especially since he finished with a .900 SV% or worse in exactly half of his 32 appearances. That's without mentioning how he went from having a 72.2% quality start percentage in 2022-23 to 46.4 QS% this season.

While re-signing Wedgewood won't break the bank, I wouldn't be surprised if the Stars move on. Having a reliable backup goaltender is crucial to being a top-tier team and I just don't see the 31-year-old providing that type of support. You never know what you're going to get from him when he steps between the pipes, which isn't what you want from your goalie.

Wedgewood will get a chance to continue his NHL career this offseason; it just shouldn't be with the Stars.
