Fasth has been sidelined by a knee injury since February 16th, but is healthy enough to potentially start the season finale on Saturday. If he does start, he would be the fourth goalie to start a game in the Oilers last four contests.
Fasth was placed on IR this morning and the only update the Oilers had was that he is out indefinitely. Expect him to miss at least a few weeks and he is likely still undergoing tests to determine a more accurate timeline for his return.
The Oilers have placed Viktor Fasth (knee) on injured reserve.
Fasth suffered a knee injury in Monday’s shootout loss and his movement to IR allowed the Oilers to activate Ben Scrivens, who is set to return form a hamstring injury. There is no word on how long Fasth will be sidelined, but being on IR means that he will miss at least the next three games.
Fasth suffered a knee injury in Monday’s shootout loss.
Fasth made 42 saves to get the Oilers to the shootout, before suffering a knee injury on the first shot attempt. The severity of the injury is yet to be determined, but the good news is that Ben Scrivens is expected to be back on Wednesday.
Fasth was pulled after he allowed three goals on 15 shots in the Oilers 7-2 loss to the Senators on Saturday. Tonight he will start for the seventh time in the last eight games—Fasth has gone 2-4-0 with a 3.72 GAA and .875 SV% in his previous six outings.
Fasth allowed three goals on 26 shots in the Oilers win in Montreal on Thursday. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Fasth. He has gone 2-3-0 with a 3.38 GAA and .883 SV% in February. He has yet to face the Senators this season, but has gone 6-8-2 with a 3.33 GAA and .890 SV% on the road.
Fasth allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Oilers loss on Long Island on Tuesday. With Ben Scrivens still out, Fasth will start for the fifth time in the Oilers last six games. He has won one of his last four games with a 3.48 GAA and .882 SV%. He is a risky start tonight in Montreal.
Fasth allowed five goals on 28 shots in the Oilers 5-1 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday. He was given last night off, but Ben Scrivens suffered a hamstring injury, so Fasth will start tonight on Long Island. Fasth has gone 5-7-2 with a 3.38 GAA and .890 SV% on the road this season.
Fasth will make his third straight start on Saturday.
Fasth allowed two goals on 26 shots in the Oilers 2-0 loss to the Penguins on Wednesday. He played well against a strong offence, but when the team can’t score in front of you, there isn’t much you can do. He has actually not three of his last five starts while posting a 2.71 GAA and .908 SV%.
Fasth allowed four goals on 37 shots in the Oilers shootout win in San Jose on Monday. Fasth has won three out of his last four starts (all three via the shootout) while posting a 2.85 GAA and .905 SV%. He draws a tough matchup tonight with Sidney Crosby and the Penguins in town.
Fasth made 27 saves on 29 shots in the Oilers loss to Minnesota on December 27th. He went 2-2-0 in January and now sits 4-11-2- with a 3.29 GAA and .891 SV% on the season. He draws a rough matchup tonight in San Jose.
Fasth surrendered four goals on 24 shots in the Oilers victory over the Capitals last Tuesday. Don’t look now, but Fasth has won two in a row and will look for number-3 tonight vs. the Wild. However, he has gone 0-4-0 with a 3.74 GAA and .870 SV% at Rexall Place this season.
Fasth stopped 35 of 37 shots that he faced in the Oilers shootout win over the Panthers on Saturday. It was one of Fasth’s best games this season, which earned him a second straight start tonight in Washington. Despite the strong outing, we would like to see some consistency out of Fasth before he can be trusted in fantasy circles.
Fasth gave up three goals on 40 shots in the Oilers 4-2 defeat to the Red Wings on January 6th. Fasth has gone 2-10-2 with a 3.47 GAA and .886 SV% on the season. Tonight he will start vs. the 20-13-9 Pantehrs, who have allowed 12 goals in their last two games. Fasth has gone 2-6-2 on the road this season.
Scratch that, Fasth will start vs. the Red Wings, not Scrivens.
Fasth was pulled after surrendering three goals on six shots in a loss to the Flames on December 27th. Ben Scirvens started the last four games, but it will be Fasth tonight vs. the Red Wings. Fasth is 2-9-2 with a 3.51 GAA and .881 SV% this season, but has gone 2-0-0 at home versus 0-9-2 on the road.
