Ben Scrivens believes Todd McLellan has the Oilers going in the right direction.
"We didn’t have a good enough team, it didn’t have sufficient structure, but that’s been getting better. And the last unsuccessful season notwithstanding, I think that Todd McLellan is moving in the right direction," said Scrivens. "A lot of first picks overall helps only when they play for the team, and play well. That, obviously, wasn’t happening in Edmonton. That’s a coach’s job to force the team to be responsible." Last month, Scrivens signed with Dinamo Minsk in the KHL. Sun, Aug 21, 2016 09:19:00 PM

Ben Scrivens has reportedly signed with the KHL's Dinamo Minsk.

Scrivens had a 3.07 GAA and .906 save percentage in 15 games with Montreal in 2015-16. They waived him in late March after signing NCAA standout Charlie Lindgren. Scrivens is still just 29 years old, so he might end up back in the NHL at some point. He has a 2.92 GAA and .905 save percentage in 144 career contests.

Ben Scrivens gave up five goals on 44 shots in the Canadiens’ 5-0 loss to the Senators on Saturday night.

After winning two games in a row, Scrivens plummeted back to reality in this one. He allowed a goal in each of the first two periods, and three in the third. He’s not recommended the rest of the way; in fact, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Mike Condon start tomorrow, and moving forward, too. Scrivens has a 3.07 GAA and .906 SV%.

Montreal goalie Ben Scrivens enjoyed a first-rate game Wednesday night in the Canadiens' 3-2 overtime victory over the Sabres in Buffalo.

Scrivens turned away 41 of the 43 shots the Sabres fired at him in regulation and OT. Scrivens, who has played in only three of the Habs' past 11 games, improved his numbers in this one, reducing his goals-against average from 3.00 to 2.90 and increasing his save percentage from .902 to .908. Still, don't use Scrivens for any fantasy play this season, not even if you're desperate for one-night action. He may get more starts now but he's inconsistent, at best, and the Canadiens have not been nearly as successful this season as they should have been. They miss their superstar goalie, Carey Price, who, if you've been on Mars in 2015-16, has been out most of the season with a leg injury.

Ben Scrivens stopped 30 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Dallas Stars.

Scrivens collected his first win since Feb. 9. The 29-year-old has a 4-6-0 record with a 3.00 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage. His awkward goaltending style isn't overly affective, so it's best if you stay away from him in all fantasy formats.

Ben Scrivens will get the nod Tuesday against Dallas.

Scrivens has lost his last two outings and he allowed three goals against in each appearance. He has posted a 3-6-0 record this season along with a 3.01 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage.
