The Edmonton Oilers did a goaltending shuffle a few weeks back and apparently they liked what they have seen. On Monday they reportedly signed Ben Scrivens to a new two-year deal. The contract, which hasn't been announced by the team but has been reported by numerous outlets, is moderately price according to Sportsnet's John Shannon. The deal is for $4.6 million, or $2.3 million per season. For a starting NHL goaltender, that's a pretty great price. Scrivens was acquired by the Oilers a few weeks ago in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings. It came just minutes after the Oilers swung a deal with the Predators, sending Devan Dubnyk to Nashville. Dubynk, meanwhile, was placed on waivers by the Preds on Monday with the return of Pekka Rinne imminent.
