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 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 leads the Oilers onto the ice for warmups.

Fasth will start Thursday in Montreal.

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 will start on Tuesday vs. Minnesota.

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 will start in Washington.

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 will be in goal for the Oilers.

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.

Fasth will get the start in Calgary.

Fasth gave up three tallies on 19 shots in the Oilers 5-1 loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday. Fasth has not registered a win since November 9th. He enters play tonight at 2-8-2 with a 3.29 GAA and .888 SV% this season. He draws a nice matchup vs. the Flames who are 2-7-1 in their last 10, but Fasth is nearly impossible to trust.

Fasth starts vs. the Ducks.

Fasth allowed two goals on 34 shots in the Oilers 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Wednesday. After a strong performance vs. his former team he gets the chance to face them again tonight, this time in Edmonton. He only made two home starts, going 0-2-0 with a 3.52 GAA and .866 SV%.

Fasth starts vs. his former team on Wednesday.

Fasth allowed five goals on 24 shots in the Oilers loss to the Coyotes on December 1st. Ben Scrivens has started the last three games, but it will be Fasth tonight in Anaheim. It will be the first time he faces his former team this season, but they have won four in a row and the Oilers are…well the Oilers, so avoid this one.

Fasth starts tonight vs. Arizona.

Fasth stopped 24 of 25 shots in the Oilers 1-0 OT loss to the Predators last Thursday. He was given Friday night off, but will be back in between the pipes tonight trying to snap the Oilers extensive nine-game losing streak. Fasth has a 3.01 GAA and .900 SV% in 10 games this season.

Viktor Fasth to start.

Fasth surrendered three goals on 34 shots in the Oilers 3-2 loss to Dallas on Tuesday. The loss extended his losing streak to three games—he has posted a 3.46 GAA and .894 SV% over that stretch. The Oilers are in full-out tail-spin mode right now, so Fasth should be avoided until they start turning things around.
