Cam Talbot will be between the pipes on Wednesday night when the Oilers host the visiting Washington Capitals.

The NHL has selected Cam Talbot as the first star of the week.

Talbot led Edmonton to three straight victories by posting a 1.00 GAA and .970 save percentage. The Oilers have had plenty of offensive weapons for a while now so the concerns about them have typically centered around their defense and goaltending. It's still early, but if Talbot has a strong season then this might be the campaign where the Oilers finally take a big step forward.

Cam Talbot turned away 31 shots the Jets sent his way in Sunday's 3-0 win in the Heritage Classic.

Talbot was simply sensational as he stopped 12 shots on four Winnipeg power plays to secure his first shutout of the season. He's now a league-leading 5-1 on the season.
Oct 23 - 7:50 PM

Cam Talbot will get the start for Edmonton Sunday as the Oilers visit the Winnipeg Jets in the second Heritage Classic.

The game will be played outdoors in Winnipeg. Talbot is off to a good start as far as his record is concerned as he is 4-1 but his .904 save percentage and 3.32 GAA leave a lot to be desired. He should be in someone's lineup in a deep league.
Oct 23 - 11:28 AM

Cam Talbot turned in his most impressive start of the season, stopping 34 shots in a 3-1 Oilers win over St. Louis on Thursday.

Talbot was named the first star of the game for good reason. He's started all five games for the Oilers who have come out of the games 4-1. Fantasy owners likely wish his 3.32 GAA and .904 save percentage were better but right now they have to be happy for the four wins after last season only yielded 21 for the Talbot. He will get the Jets on Sunday in the heritage classic.
Oct 21 - 1:55 AM

Cam Talbot will get the start against the Blues on Thursday night.

Talbot is not off to a good start this season. He's allowed 15 goals in four games, with just one game in which he's allowed fewer than three goals. Will things change against the Blues tonight? Seems unlikely.
Oct 20 - 6:13 PM

Cam Talbot made a thrilling save with two seconds remaining in the game Tuesday night to help insure the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes went empty net during a late game power play and moved the action to the opposite end of the ice with frenetic energy. With two seconds remaining Elias Lindstrom’s shot on goal was blocked by Talbot’s stick and a glove save on a rebound. Talbot blocked 31 shots for a save percentage of .939. Thirteen of these shots came in the first period while Talbot was perfect in the net; 13 came in the third period when the Hurricanes scored quickly, but after a flurry of two goals by Lee Stempniak 4:14 into the period, Talbot stood tall.

Cam Talbot will start Tuesday's game versus Carolina.

Talbot will look to rebound after surrendering six goals to Buffalo in a 6-2 loss on Sunday. He posted two wins over Calgary prior to that clunker.
Oct 18 - 4:31 PM

After two wins against rival Calgary to start the season, Cam Talbot turned in a horrible performance on Sunday night, allowing six goals on 23 shots.

To top the 6-2 loss to Buffalo off, Ryan O'Reilly's sputtering wrist shot from center ice proved to be the winner in a forgettable night at the office for Talbot. The 29-year-old falls to 2-1 this season with lots of work to do in order to repair his 4.62 goals against average and .869 save percentage.
Oct 16 - 11:36 PM

Cam Talbot will face Buffalo on Sunday night.

Two games, two wins, and just seven goals against. Not a bad start to the season for Talbot and the Oilers, though that .908 save percentage could use some improvement. Expect just that against the offensively-depleted Sabres squad.
Oct 16 - 12:32 PM

Cam Talbot stopped 32 of 35 shots in a 5-3 win over the Flames.

Although he has given up seven goals in his first two starts, Talbot can shape into a steal at the end of drafts if the Oilers continue their great play. He will likely get the bulk of the starts for the Oilers and will always have a chance to pick up wins as long as Connor McDavid is in the lineup. He now carries a 5-2 record all-time against the Flames in his career.
Oct 15 - 12:00 AM

Cam Talbot will take the crease on Friday, once again versus Calgary.

Talbot stopped 37 of 41 shots on Thursday night in the 7-4 victory, but he'll have to do better than that to give the Oilers' their first winning streak of the season. Talbot is 4-2 with 18 goals against in seven games all-time against Calgary.
Oct 14 - 6:15 PM

Cam Talbot defended the goal from 37 of 41 shots in the first ever game at Rodgers Place. The Oilers defeated the Flames 7-4 Wednesday night.

Talbot had his fair share of surprises in the team’s first game at Rodgers Place. After letting in the first shot on goal by the Flame’s Alex Chiasson, he was near perfect during five-on-five hockey. Unfortunately, he was tripped up by a set of shorthanded goals halfway through the second period as he may have let his guard down while the team battled with an extra attacker down the ice. Talbot was rushed by Troy Brouwer for the first of these short handers and was swarmed by Michael Frolik during the second penalty kill line. He let his fourth and final goal pass from Dennis Wideman on a late power play in the final period.
Oct 13 - 2:57 AM

Cam Talbot is the confirmed starter for the Oilers in their regular season opener.

Talbot started 53 games winning 21 with a 2.55 goals-against-average and .917 save percentage.
