Oilers Looking For Upgrade From Scrivens?

News: Ben Scrivens is likely to have some additional competition in net this season, according to the Oilers web site.
Analysis: The Oilers currently have Ben Scrivens and Viktor Fasth as their starting goaltenders but could look to deal their second of two first-round picks (16th overall) for one of several young netminders (Cam Talbot) that are available this offseason. If they keep the 16th overall pick, they could also select the top-ranked goaltender on their board. We all know the Oilers will take Connor McDavid with the first overall pick, but he won't solve all of their problems. Defense along with goaltending will continue to be an issue.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Allows Six Goals In Finale

News: Ben Scrivens allowed six goals on 23 shots in Saturday's loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens is probably relieved that this mess of a season has come to an end. The 28-year-old goaltender finished the year with four straight losses, allowing a whopping 20 goals in that span. With a 15-26-11 record to go with a .890 save percentage and 3.16 GAA, Scrivens really wasn't of much fantasy value at any point this season. If the Oilers can turn things around in 2015-16, Scrivens is a bounce-back candidate, but his ceiling still remains low.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Oilers Turn To Scrivens For Season Finale

Ben Scrivens

Oilers Turn To Scrivens For Season Finale

News: Ben Scrivens will be the starter in goal for Saturday's game against the Canucks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: It was expected that Viktor Fasth would get the nod for the season finale after the Oilers activated him from IR a day earlier, but coach Todd Nelson decided that Ben Scrivens was deserving of one more turn. Scrivens will be under contract 2015-16, but after he supplied a dismal 3.11 GAA and .892 save percentage over 56 games this season, the Oilers are sure to at least explore other options on the goalie market this summer.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Oilers' Scrivens Allows Four Goals In Loss

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Allows Four Goals In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 29 shots in Saturday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Another poor showing from Ben Scrivens, who's allowed a whopping 14 goals in his last three games. The 28-year-old falls to 15-26-10 on the season with a .892 save percentage and 3.11 GAA. He's the starter in Edmonton, but his awful rate stats and lackluster record makes him only of value in the deepest of leagues.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Oilers Standing By Scrivens For Saturday Start

Ben Scrivens

Oilers Standing By Scrivens For Saturday Start

News: Ben Scrivens will receive the start in goal Saturday against the Flames.
Analysis: With Richard Bachman still away from the team to attend to a personal matter, Ben Scrivens will earn a third consecutive start. It's hardly a deserved appointment, as he's been rotten in the previous two turns with a total of 10 goals allowed in losses to the Ducks and Kings. He can't be trusted to produce improved results in Saturday's matchup.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Scrivens Pulled By Oilers On Thursday

Ben Scrivens

Scrivens Pulled By Oilers On Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens was beaten for five goals on 21 shots Thursday before being pulled in an 8-2 shellacking at the hands of the Kings.
Analysis: Ouch. Tyler Bunz came on at the start of the third period, making his NHL debut, and was no better. Just another miserable day at the office for Ben Scrivens, who's allowed a spectacularly bad 21 goals in his last five games. Somehow, he's managed to win twice in that span.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM

Ben Scrivens

Oilers Turn To Scrivens Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net Thursday against the Kings, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles News Group reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens was all but guaranteed to start Thursday's contest with the news that Richard Bachman wouldn't be with the club for personal reasons. He struggled in his last start Wednesday, allowing five goals to the Ducks, and will face another tough opponent in the Kings on Thursday, playing on back-to-back nights.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Gives Up Five To Ducks

News: Ben Scrivens gave up five goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Another start and another loss for Ben Scrivens, whose record dropped to 15-24-10 in this one. Worse than his record are his dismal 3.03 GAA and .894 save percentage, numbers that should have him off your radar in next year's drafts.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Start Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Ducks, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd Nelson likely would have preferred to ride a suddenly hot Richard Bachman in goal for Wednesday's game, but with the netminder leaving the team due to a death in the family, Ben Scrivens will pick up his first start since March 25. The Oilers have been playing their best hockey of the season of late with victories in six of their past eight games, but Scrivens' overall body of work shouldn't inspire a ton of confidence for the winning ways to continue much longer. The Ducks have been victorious in both of the two teams' previous three meetings this season, with Scrivens on the losing end of a 2-1 decision back on Feb. 21.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Allows Three In Win

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 41 of the 44 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens faced a ton of shots once again, but played well and was able to pick up the victory. He's now 15-23-10 on the season with a .896 save percentage and a 3.00 GAA.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Oilers' Scrivens To Man Net Wednesday

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Man Net Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Even by his normally low standards, Ben Scrivens is having an awful month of March. Over nine outings, he's come away with only two wins while posting save percentages below .900 on all but two occasions. The Avalanche aren't the offensive juggernaut they were a year ago, but Scrivens simply isn't playing well enough to risk using him in most formats.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Another Loss For Oilers' Scrivens

Ben Scrivens

Another Loss For Oilers' Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens stopped just 20 of 24 shots in a 4-1 loss to the visiting Jets on Monday.
Analysis: Another game, another loss for Ben Scrivens -- his 23rd of the year. He's emerged victorious just twice in his last 10 starts and although this point has been beaten into the ground, we'll say it again: he's definitely one goalie to avoid given the team in front of him, his 2.99 GAA and .895 save percentage this year.

Oilers' Scrivens Gets Monday's Start

News: Ben Scrivens is slated to start Monday's game against the Jets, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens, who will square off against Ondrej Pavelec on Monday, has allowed seven goals over his last two turns in net for the Oilers. He'll be making his seventh consecutive start for the team on Monday.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Makes 27 Saves In Win

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 27 of 31 shots Saturday as the Oilers eeked out a victory over the Flyers.
Analysis: A decent night for Ben Scrivens, who advances to 14-22-10 on the season with a .896 save percentage and 2.97 GAA. He's suffered just one regulation loss in his last six games and is starting almost every game, so if you're looking to pick up some wins in a deeper league, Scrivens could be your guy. The Oilers are playing better of late and are seeing crazy production from Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Man Net Saturday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the cage Saturday against the Flyers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: It's the sixth consecutive start for Ben Scrivens, who continues to benefit from the Oilers' lack of other options in goal. Scrivens has parlayed his standing as the team's No. 1 goalie into a 13-22-10 record, 2.96 GAA, and .897 save percentage over 50 appearances, numbers that make him unplayable in most mid-sized or shallow leagues and a low-end goalie in deeper formats. Even against a reeling Flyers squad, it's hard to feel good about Scrivens' prospects.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Stops 17 In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on 20 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has struggled all year, so Wednesday night wasn't much of a departure. He now ranks in the "top" five in the league in losses, overtime losses and goals allowed, and has just a .897 save percentage through 50 games.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Make Fifth Straight Turn

News: Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: It's the fifth straight starting nod for Ben Scrivens, mostly as a byproduct of the Oilers' lack of appealing alternatives in net. Scrivens was able to score a rare victory over the Maple Leafs on Monday with a 28-save effort, and while the Blue Jackets also possess a sub-.500 record for the season, they've been a much more competitive squad. Even though he'll be on his own home ice, Scrivens still doesn't look like an attractive lineup option for Wednesday's slate.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Beats Leafs

News: Ben Scrivens made 28 of 29 saves in Monday's 4-1 win over the visiting Maple Leafs.
Analysis: After a four-game road stretch that didn't amount to a single victory, Ben Scrivens got back in the win column in a battle of two of the league's worst teams. His record is now at 13-22-9 with a 2.96 GAA and .897 save percentage on the year, terrible numbers all around that make him an easy goaltender to avoid between now and next season.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Gets Monday's Start

News: Ben Scrivens is slated to start Monday's game against the Maple Leafs, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens, who has allowed eight goals on 44 shots over his last 85:42 worth of ice time, will look to sharpen things up on Monday against a Toronto squad that has dropped two straight games by a combined count of 10-4.

Oilers' Scrivens Surrenders Four Goals In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens surrendered four goals on 31 shots in Friday's shootout loss to Columbus.
Analysis: Another loss for Ben Scrivens, who has just one win in his last eight games. The 28-year-old is now 12-22-9 on the season with an .896 save percentage and 3.00 GAA. While he may start lots of games, Scrivens doesn't win much and his rate stats are lacking. If there's a better option out there, go for it.

Oilers' Scrivens Starts Friday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net Friday against the Blue Jackets, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens struggled mightily in his last outing before receiving the hook in the second period, allowing four goals on 13 shots. He's back in net Friday, however, looking to stay the whole 60 minutes.

Oilers' Scrivens Doesn't Last Long In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens barely made it into the second period before getting yanked Thursday against the Penguins. He gave up four goals on 13 shots, but backup Richard Bachman was the one who ended up with the loss.
Analysis: The Oilers rallied from down 4-0 with Ben Scrivens out of the game, only for Bachman to end up surrendering two late goals to lose. Scrivens' tough campaign continues, as he's given up 13 goals in his last four games and has won just once in his last eight starts.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Receives Nod Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Penguins, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: The Oilers will kick off a back-to-back set in Pittsburgh on Thursday with their No. 1 goalie in the net, but don't be surprised if he's called upon again Friday in Columbus. Though Ben Scrivens' numbers for the season (12-22-8, 2.92 GAA, .898 save percentage) hardly suggest that he should enjoy job security, backup Richard Bachman is simply not an NHL-caliber goalie, as evidenced by his start last weekend, when he allowed six goals to a below-average Hurricanes squad. As a result, Scrivens will likely be used heavily down the stretch, though he won't provide much value to fantasy players beyond inflated save totals.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Surrenders Three In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on 24 shots before two empty-netters brought the final tally to 5-2 in Monday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has now lost four in a row and six of his last seven, but he hasn't been at fault in most of them. While he has been improving his own personal play of late, his rate stats are still poor (2.92 GAA and .898 save percentage), and he won't pick up many wins so it's best to avoid him for fantasy purposes.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens In Net Monday

News: Ben Scrivens will start between the pipes Monday against the Red Wings, Oilers' play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens got the day off for the first game of the Oilers' back-to-back set, making him the likely candidate to start Monday. He will look to turn things around following three straight losses in net, but will face a tough task against the Red Wings.
