No. 33 is ranked No. 7.

Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot was heralded as the seventh-best netminder in the League by the NHL Network, in large part due to Talbot's body of work and 2016-17 numbers.

Last season, Talbot led the way in games and minutes played, with 73 and 4,294, respectively. He tied Peter Budaj and Sergei Bobrovsky in shutouts with seven, averaging a 2.39 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.

"He's such an easy personality and easy in the net," said former NHL keeper Kevin Weekes.

"Guys root for him, guys want to play in front of him... Without Cam Talbot last year, last season doesn't happen."
