The 28-year-old has a 3-7-0 record with a 3.00 goals-against-average and a .893 save percentage in his first season with the Oilers.

After an encouraging start to the season, Talbot has allowed between three and five goals in each of his past four starts. He now sports 27 goals against and a .898 save percentage to go along with a 3-6-0 record. And it won't get any easier tonight, despite past successes against Chicago.
Nov 8 - 1:15 PM

Cam Talbot made just 27 shots in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Flames.

Talbot has been stellar all season for the Oilers, but on this night, he was on the other side of why the Oilers lost the game. With his first Really Bad Start of the season, Talbot's record falls to 3-6-0 with 27 goals against.
Nov 1 - 1:54 AM

Cam Talbot will get the nod on Saturday night against the Flames.

It'll be the second time Talbot gets a taste of Battle of Alberta, and the first time he stopped 22 of 24 shots in victory. For the season, Talbot has gone 3-5-0 with 22 goals against with four Quality Starts against zero Really Bad Starts. Perhaps it's that last metric that's most impressive.
Oct 31 - 7:22 PM

Cam Talbot didn't have a good Thursday night, making just 18 saves but the Oilers bailed him out by scoring four unanswered goals on Montreal, winning 4-3.

Talbot surrendered three goals on 11 shots in the first period, but he stopped all 10 he saw in the final 40 minutes. Sometimes the goalie bails out his team, and sometimes the team bails out their goalie. Talbot's record improves to 3-5-0 with 22 goals against in just nine games thus far.
Oct 30 - 12:20 AM

Cam Talbot will play between the pipes against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.

That's certainly not a great assignment given how the Canadiens have played so far this season. Talbot has a 2.58 GAA and .909 save percentage in eight contests in 2015-16.
Oct 29 - 2:06 PM

Cam Talbot allowed four goals on 28 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Minnesota.

The 28-year-old has gotten off to a rough start with his new team. Talbot's record now drops to 2-5-0 this season. He has a 2.58 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage. Talbot is quickly finding out that playing for a talented Rangers squad and playing behind a young Oilers team are two different things.
Oct 27 - 11:56 PM

Cam Talbot will get the nod Tuesday night against the Wild.

For all the derision one can throw towards the Oilers, Talbot certainly hasn't been the problem. He's given up two goals or fewer in four of his six starts thus far. There's surely a more favorable matchup on a night with 10 games on, but playing Talbot isn't so bad either.
Oct 27 - 7:34 PM

Cam Talbot allowed three goals in a 3-2 loss to the Kings on Sunday.

He stopped 31 of 34 shots in the loss and is now 2-4-0 on the year. Talbot is going to be a frustrating goaltender to own because of the inconsistent play of the Oilers. He’s going to need more support from his teammates to become a consistent fantasy producer. He is expected to man the crease again for the Oilers Tuesday against the Wild.
Oct 26 - 12:22 AM

Cam Talbot will be in net for the Edmonton Oilers against the surging Los Angeles Kings on Sunday.

No big surprise considering how rough Anders Nilsson's outing was against the Washington Capitals on Friday (forcing Talbot to replace him during the game). Talbot hasn't been spectacular, yet the Oilers would likely be pleased if he's merely a steadying force in net.
Oct 25 - 2:10 PM

Cam Talbot relieved Anders Nilsson mid way through Friday's rough 7-4 loss to Washington.

Talbot for his part stopped eight of nine shots, and nearly blanked the Capitals save for a wrister that found a hole in his armpit through a screen. There's no question that Talbot is the starter in Edmonton, but they'll all need Nilsson to play better moving forward.
