Cam Talbot is the Oilers' starting goaltender Saturday afternoon.

Cam Talbot stopped 28 out of 31 shots that he faced in a 4-1 loss to the Bruins on Thursday night.

The Bruins scored three goals in a span of six minutes in the first period after McDavid opened the scoring and it was enough to sink the Oilers on Thursday. The Oilers got into penalty trouble early, opening the door for the Bruins who scored their first two goals on the powerplay. The 31-year old is now 0-2 with a 3.57 GAA and a .877 save percentage to start the season.

Cam Talbot will get the nod for Edmonton Thursday night.

Talbot and the Oilers will attempt to bounce back after suffering a 5-2 defeat in their season opener on Saturday. He surrendered four goals on 26 shots in the loss to New Jersey.
Oct 11 - 5:43 PM

Cam Talbot allowed four goals on 26 shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

The Oilers allowed the first goal of the game just 58 seconds into the first period, but they managed to tie it up just over three minutes later. Unfortunately for Edmonton, their porous defense didn't make things easy for their goaltender in this one. Talbot needs to be better than he was a year ago, but he'll need some help if the Oilers want to have any chance of making the playoffs this year. The 31-year-old has a 4.05 goals-against-average and a .846 save percentage right now.

Cam Talbot will be between the pipes for Saturday’s game against New Jersey.

Talbot will have to prove that he’s able to bounce back after a less-than-stellar year in 2017-18. He had a 31-31-3 record with a 3.02 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage last season.
Oct 6 - 11:28 AM

Cam Talbot turned aside all 35 of the shots he faced in Tuesday's 6-0 preseason victory against the Vancouver Canucks.

Talbot and the Oilers were a huge disappointment in 2017-18, and the netminder has vowed to fire out of the chute and get the team off to a much better start in the new season. He is hoping that an early overseas trip, as well as his momentum to wrap up last season, will serve as a springboard into the new year. For now, Talbot should be viewed as a low-end No. 2 netminder in most fantasy pools, but he has upside with a high-octane offense providing plenty of support.

Cam Talbot wants to help the Edmonton Oilers get off to a strong start in 2018-19.

"Our start is a huge focus and that starts in training camp," Talbot said. "I know that guys are getting ready to come back into town soon and they're going to be fired up and ready to go. We don't want another repeat of last year, and everyone knows that." He believes the team's early trip to Gothenburg, Sweden against the New Jersey Devils in the NHL Global Series will present the team with a great opportunity to bond immediately. Talbot struggled last year, but likes the way he played toward the end of the campaign and he hopes to build on that.
Jul 31 - 7:31 PM

It seems Cam Talbot and the Edmonton Oilers aren't engaged in any talks regarding a possible contract extension.

"I know Cam had a really good exit meeting but I haven’t really spoken to Edmonton at all," said Talbot’s agent George Bazos. "I imagine I’ll bump into Peter at the draft ... but there’s no big plans or anything." Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli doesn't need to act at this time given that Talbot has a season left on his three-year, $12.5 million contract. In fact, it's not surprising that all's quiet on the Talbot front given that he's coming off a rough campaign where he posted a 3.02 GAA and .908 save percentage in 67 games. The Oilers will likely want to see if he bounces back before committing to him long-term.
Jun 20 - 4:48 AM

Cam Talbot made 36 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

Talbot won't get to take his Oilers to the playoffs as he boldly proclaimed partway through the season, but at least he'll end the season with back-to-back victories. Talbot concludes his season with a 31-31-3 record, a 3.02 GAA and a .908 save percentage.
Apr 8 - 1:41 AM

Cam Talbot will start Saturday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Talbot has a 30-31-3 record with a 3.04 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season.
Apr 7 - 9:59 PM

With Thursday's victory, Cam Talbot has now earned back-to-back 30-win campaigns.

This season has obviously been a disappointing one for Talbot and the Oilers, but he has nevertheless been a workhorse for them and that's what led to him reaching the 30-win milestone during the team's subpar campaign. He's the first Oilers goaltender to record back-to-back seasons of at least 30 wins since Tommy Salo in 2000-01 and 2001-02.
Apr 6 - 5:27 AM

Cam Talbot made 30 saves on 33 shots in a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night.

Talbot's last victory came March 24 against the Los Angeles Kings. Prior to Thursday night's win, he had lost his last five starts. The goaltender now has a record of 30-31-3 with a 3.04 GAA and a .907 save percentage.
Apr 6 - 12:35 AM

Cam Talbot will get the start in Thursday's game against the Vegas Golden Knights.

After posting stellar numbers last year, Talbot has been a huge disappointment in 2017-18. He owns a 29-31-3 record with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season.
Apr 5 - 8:40 PM

Cam Talbot believes he'll bounce back in 2018-19.

Talbot has a 29-31-3 record, 3.05 GAA, and .907 save percentage in 65 games this season. That's a huge drop from 2016-17 when he posted a 42-22-8 record, 2.39 GAA, and .919 save percentage in 73 starts. So the question after those two drastically different campaigns is: What should we expect in 2018-19? "I have a pretty good feeling," said Talbot of his chances of bouncing back. "If you compare my first four (NHL) years, this is the outlier. I had three good years before that (.926 and .917 average in New York and last season’s .919)." That's true, though at the same time we're still somewhat skeptical. It's not even about Talbot, it's about the Oilers. So much of a goalies statistics are tied to the strength of the team in front of them and the Oilers have been dreadful. There is some potential there for them to bounce back and they have the summer to try to make changes, but as things stand right now, Talbot is looking like a big gamble for next season.
