Oilers Goaltending Struggles Continue

The Edmonton Oilers are experiencing persistent difficulties with their goaltending, leading to significant changes.

Jack Campbell, once a key player, has been demoted to the AHL in hopes of improving his performance.

Goaltender Calvin Pickard has been recalled from the @Condors.

Goaltender Jack Campbell has cleared waivers & been assigned to Bakersfield.


Edmonton Oilers' Tweet:

Stuart Skinner, stepping in during Campbell's absence, hasn't lived up to expectations. His statistics this season – a 3.37 goals against average and a 0.875 save percentage – have disappointed fans and the team alike.

Calvin Pickard, though playing only a few games since his call-up, has also struggled, aligning with expectations given his record.

Mock Trade Provides Hope For The Oilers

In light of these challenges, a proposed mock trade could offer a solution. Caleb Kerney from The Hockey News suggests acquiring Carter Hart as a potential fix for the Oilers' goaltending woes.

The proposed trade would be substantial:

To Edmonton: Carter Hart

To Philadelphia: Stuart Skinner, a first-round pick, a second-round pick, one or two top prospects, and a roster player


This trade would mark a bold move for the Oilers, requiring a strong belief in their ability to contend with Hart on the team. Hart's impressive performance this season, despite a weak defense in Philadelphia, makes him an attractive target.

As the Oilers navigate their future, the possibility of integrating Carter Hart could be a significant factor in their playoff aspirations.

Remarkable Save by Hart:
