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.

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.

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 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.
