The Edmonton Oilers have placed Viktor Fasth (knee) on the injured reserve list.

Fasth was hurt during Monday's contest, but the Oilers didn't practice on Tuesday or provide an update on his status. However, the team's website now lists him as being on the reserve, so it looks like he won't be available for Edmonton's next three games. They also activated Ben Scrivens.

Edmonton goalie Viktor Fasth had a strong game and made 42 saves but he and the Oilers took a 5-4 shootout loss in Winnipeg Monday night.

Fasth`s record is 6-15-3. His goals-against average is 3.41 and his save percentage is .888. Fasth was good in Winnipeg but he`s not a good option as a fantasy goalie, not with a team as poor as the Oilers.

Viktor Fasth will be in goal for Edmonton as they take on the Winnipeg Jets on Monday.

The 32-year-old has a 6-15-2 record with a 3.40 goals-against-average and an .887 save percentage. You should look elsewhere for a starting fantasy goaltender.

Viktor Fasth was yanked from Friday's 7-2 loss to Ottawa after being beaten for three soft goals on 15 shots over 20:41 of play.

Sure, one softy can beat you at any time. It happens. But three is unacceptable, and Coach Nelson wasted no time sending in Richard Bachman just 41 seconds into the second period. Fasth was saddled with the loss and his record falls to 6-15-2 with 72 goals against in 25 games this season.

Viktor Fasth is expected to get the start on Valentine's Day against the Ottawa Senators.

Fasth has been doing his best to hold down Edmonton's fort with primary netminder Ben Scrivens out, but it hasn't gone as well as hoped. He's won just two of his five February starts with 17 goals against. Ouch. For the season, Fasth has a 6-14-2 record with 69 goals against in 24 games thus far.

Viktor Fasth will get the start against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

Fasth comes in with a 5-14-2 record with 66 goals against in 22 games thus far, but he's never faced Montreal before and they have backup Dustin Tokarski playing. Meaning Fasth could be in line to steal a game. Edmonton still sits four points greater than last place Buffalo, but the 32 year old Fasth is playing for pride.

Viktor Fasth yielded five goals on 28 shots in Edmontons’ 5-1 loss to Toronto on Saturday night.

Fasth was brought in to be a 1B goalie behind Ben Scrivens, and he’s been anything but. Fasth gave up three goals in the second and two more in the third. He has a 3.34 goals-against average and .889 save percentage this season. Suffice to say, he is not worth owning in any league.

The Edmonton Oilers continue to roll with Viktor Fasth in net as they face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Fasth stopped 24 out of 26 shots in a loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Feb. 4, but it seems like he's generally instilling more confidence in his teammates than Ben Scrivens lately.
