Koskinen will start Tuesday vs. the Red Wings.

Koskinen allowed three goals on 18 shots after replacing Cam Talbot in the Oilers blowout loss to the Hurricanes on Sunday. Koskinen signed a three-year extension on Monday despite going 3-7-0 with a 3.94 GAA and .879 SV% in his previous 11 appearances.

The Oilers have signed Mikko Koskinen to a three-year contract extension worth $13.5 million ($4.5M AAV).

Koskinen’s NHL career got off to an excellent start, going 11-3-1 with a 2.12 GAA, .930 SV% and three shutouts in his first 16 appearances. However, since then he is 3-7-0 with a 3.94 GAA and .879 SV% in 11 games. It is a bit alarming to sign a goalie to that kind of money in the middle of a very difficult stretch but in Koskinen’s defence, he doesn’t have a great blue line in front of him.

Koskinen will start Wednesday in Vancouver.

Koskinen was outstanding on Monday, stopping 41 of 43 shots in a 7-2 win over the Sabres. Koskinen was able to put an ugly stretch of games behind him and will look to stay on-track tonight vs. the Canucks. It looks like a nice matchup on paper but Koskinen is 0-2-0 with a 5.37 GAA and .800 SV% in two games vs. Vancouver this season.

Koskinen will start Wednesday in Arizona.

Koskinen surrendered four goals on 36 shots in the Oilers loss to the Jets on Monday. Koskinen has fallen into a bit of a slump lately, losing four in a row while allowing a combined 16 goals on 115 shots (.861 SV%).
