Edmonton Oilers Add Goaltending Depth

The Edmonton Oilers were dealt a major blow early on this season as the team had to put goaltender Mike Smith on long term injury reserve. Now the band-aid solution begins as the team has claimed goalie Troy Grosenick from the Los Angeles Kings. 

As LeBrun mentions, the team signed Anton Forsberg to be their taxi-squad goaltender, and now are without Forsberg and Smith, leading to adding Grosenick.

The 31-year-old Grosenick certainly is not experienced as he's only played in two career NHL games, which was back in 2015. Although in those two games with the San Jose Sharks, his numbers were stellar, with a 1.52 goals against average and a .948 save percentage. Makes you wonder why he never played again...

Last season the American netminder played for the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL and in 33 appearances, recorded a 2.92 goals against average, and a .920 save %. The Oilers are hoping these type of numbers can translate to success at the highest level.

For now, if you have Mikko Koskinen on your fantasy team, get ready, he's going to play a ton.
