Edmonton Oilers Make Move To Improve Goaltending Depth

The Edmonton Oilers increased their goaltending depth Monday afternoon. The team claimed goalie Alex Stalock after the Minnesota Wild placed him on waivers.

Stalock is a great depth addition to the team that has had a run of bad injury luck to their goaltending in recent months. Now that Mike Smith is healthy it doesn’t hurt to have a guy that can fill in for either him or Koskinen if anything should happen throughout this weird season.

Alex Stalock holds a career .909 save percentage with a 2.61 Goals Against Average in 151 career NHL games. Stalock is signed for the remainder of this season and through next with a very managable $785,000 cap hit.

If one thing is for certain in this league, especially this year, it’s that you can never have too much depth at the goalie position.
