Goalie Viktor Fasth has had a rough season. Following a solid season with the Anaheim Ducks, Fasth suffered an injury that would allow him to play just five games this season with that club. Then, following a trade to Edmonton, he would hurt his neck in practice and miss some time with his new team.
Fasth is just looking to put this season behind him by finishing it up strong and moving on to next year.
“After every season, you want to end with a good feeling and you’re looking forward to next season with some good memories,” Fasth said. “I mean, the start of the season or most of the season has been a struggle for me with injuries and of course you want to end on a high note here.”
Fasth has played in five games for the Oilers since being acquired via trade and has a 2-1-1 record with a 2.83 goals against average and .896 save percentage. He gets the start tonight against his former team.
