BEST OF MAXIM
The Edmonton Oilers have over the last couple of days, have solidified their goaltending situation with the signing of Ben Scrivens to a contract extension and following that up with the acquisition of Viktor Fasth from the Ducks for a couple of mid-round picks.The acquisition of Fasth allowed Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish to then deal Ilya Bryzgalov to the Wild for a forth...
The Anaheim Ducks kick started the 2014 NHL trade deadline madness with the somewhat shocking trades of Dustin Penner & Viktor Fasth.
In return, Anaheim brings in defenseman Stefan Robidas from the Dallas Stars and two late round picks from the Washington Capitals.
I am on my way out the door to work, but I will have more on my lunch break. Crazy!
Let the madness begin
The trade deadline is not until Wednesday at noon Pacific time, but the Ducks decided not to wait around until the last minute to make some moves.
On Tuesday, GM Bob Murray traded goaltender, Viktor Fasth, to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a fifth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and a third-round selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Fasth, 31, only appeared...
With Ilya Bryzgalov on his way to Minnesota and newly acquired goaltender Viktor Fasth yet to arrive in Edmonton, the Oilers brought in an unlikely netminder Wednesday. Joining starter Ben Scrivens on the ice at practice was Shannon Szabados, an Edmonton native who backstopped the Canadian women’s team to Olympic gold last month in Sochi. With Fasth arriving later today, #TeamCanada...
Ilya Bryzgalov’s tenure with the Edmonton Oilers has come to an end.
On Tuesday, a day before the NHL trade deadline, the Oilers sent the Russian goaltender to the Minnesota Wild for a fourth-round pick in order to make room for Viktor Fasth, acquired from the Anaheim Ducks earlier in the day.
“It was a great opportunity for me to play here,” Bryzgalov said. “I was very...
The Minnesota Wild have acquired goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.
The Wild announced the trade Tuesday, one day before the NHL deadline for dealing.
The 33-year-old Russian has a 5-8-5 record in 20 games for the Oilers this season with a 3.01 goals against average. His save percentage is .913. Bryzgalov has 38 games of...
The Minnesota Wild were clearly in the market for a goaltender and on Tuesday they got one, just not one of the goalies people were expecting. Ilya Bryzgalov is headed to Minnesota.
The Edmonton Oilers sent Bryzgalov to the Wild in exchange for Minnesota's fourth-round pick, a pick that was acquired in the deal for Jason Pominville last year. With Niklas Backstrom hurting and...
The Edmonton Oilers have dealt goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov to the Minnesota Wild, in exchange for a fourth-round draft choice in 2014. Minnesota was in the market for a goalie after Josh Harding’s entry into treatment for his multiple sclerosis, and after today’s news that Nicklas Backstrom will likely remain out for the rest of the year with an abdominal injury.
News reporters, the beat writers that actually make money covering the team live for the trade deadline. Its a chance for a fresh story, for some drama and the chance to interview someone different for a change. On that note the Minnesota Wild did their part to provide a bounty of interesting quotes when they acquired goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov from the Edmonton Oilers for a 4th...
The Minnesota Wild have acquired Ilya Bryzgalov from the Edmonton Oilers for a fourth round draft. Bryzgalov (5-8-5, .908 SV% and a 3.01 GAA) is probably expendable with the emergence of Ben Scrivens."Bryzgalov is a quality veteran that adds depth to the goaltending position for our team," Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher said.
#Oilers have acquired a 2014 fourth-round draft pick from the @mnwild in exchange for goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov.

The Oilers started the season with Devan Dubnyk and Jason LaBarbera in net and that didn't work out so well, so GM Craig MacTavish signed Ilya Bryzgalov for the reminder of the sesaon, shipped Dubs off to the Preds, traded HannaBarbera to the Hawks for "future considerations" and traded for Ben Scrivens. After letting the dust settle a bit, Scribbles bubbled up to become...
So much for Martin Brodeur heading off to wear a different team's Christmas sweater. The goaltender, who is in his final two months of his last contract, was attached to the Wild via rumors - but apparently those rumors aren't worth the Twitter they were tweeted on. The Minnesota Wild have effectively ended the Niklas Backstrom era by trading just a fourth round pick to the...
from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
In a clear sign that they are trying to win it all this year, the Anaheim Ducks dealt a pair of players from the fringes of their roster – popular but controversial winger Dustin Penner and goaltender Viktor Fasth – to clear up the salary cap space to grab veteran defenceman Stephane Robidas from the Dallas Stars.
