The Edmonton Oilers used six goaltenders last season, but GM Craig Mactavish team believes their situation is a lot steadier with Viktor Fasth and Ben Scrivens battling for starts come the fall.
Fasth has gone 20-11-8 with a .915 save percentage and 2.40 goals against average so far in his NHL career. At 32 years old, the Swede has less NHL experience than Scrivens who is only 27 years old. But neither have a considerable advantage over the other, as Scrivens has gone just 27-30-12 with a .917 save percentage and 2.69 goals against average. Both Fasth and Scrivens will be given plenty of opportunity to play this coming season. Aug 24 - 9:52 PM

It was a bad night to be an Oiler goalie.

Viktor Fasth allowed five goals on only 16 shots and was pulled at the 7:18 mark of the second period of the Oilers' 8-1 drubbing at the hands of the Flames Saturday night. Ben Scrivens who relieved Fasth did not fare much better allowing three goals on 15 shots. We sympathize with any poolies who had either Oiler goalie active Saturday night.

Mar 14 - 11:08 PM

Viktor Fasth was able to bounce back from a rough start on Tuesday.

Fasth was making his Oilers debut and playing in his first NHL game since Nov. 18. He allowed three goals over the span of just over four minutes in the latter half of the first period. That put Edmonton down 3-0, but Fasth was solid after that and the Oilers managed to win 4-3 in a shootout. "I had three goals early in the game . . . it couldn't get worse than that. I just had to try and fight my way in to the game," said Fasth. "A couple of bad bounces but me being away from hockey for a couple of months didn't help either. I could have done better but we got back from that, we battled through the game. It feels really good to have played the first game and to get back into it. I'm really glad I'm on the ice again." He's not expected to play too much behind Ben Scrivens.
Mar 12 - 9:32 AM
