After dealing Ilya Bryzgalov to Minnesota for a fourth-round draft pick, the Edmonton Oilers wasted little time in finding another goaltender to step into his old role. The Oilers have acquired Viktor Fasth from the Anaheim Ducks. There is no word yet as to what, or who, Edmonton is sending back to Anaheim in exchange for Fasth. Darren Dreger reports that the Ducks will receive a 5th in 2014 and 3rd in 2015 in return.
The Oilers signed current starter Ben Scrivens to a two-year extension earlier this week, but Fasth is expected to come in and get an opportunity to prove himself to Oilers management. Fasth has played in just five games for Anaheim this season. In those five games he has a 2-2-1 record with a 2.95 goals against average and a .885 save percentage.
