FEATURE: Crease competition

Goaltenders Al Montoya and Mikko Koskinen are the frontrunners competing to join Cam Talbot in the Oilers goaltending tandem at the start of the 2018-19 NHL season

by Jamie Umbach /

EDMONTON, AB - The blue paint is going to be crowded.

Eight seasons ago with the New York Islanders, goaltenders Al Montoya and Mikko Koskinen earned time between the pipes as part of a crease roulette that included six netminders.

Flash forward to this year's Oilers Main Camp, the pair are frontrunners to secure the solitary back-up spot behind mainstay Cam Talbot when the puck drops on the 2018-19 NHL season against the New Jersey Devils in Gothenburg, Sweden on Oct. 6.

"There's a lot of competition with all the goalies we have here - six or seven," former SKA St. Petersburg netminder Koskinen said on Sunday.

"Everyone wants to be the number-one guy."
