Fasth (knee) is being listed as out indefinitely.With no timetable in place for his return, it appears safe to say that Fasth will not be activated from injured reserve when eligible Feb. 24. The Oilers will welcome back Ben Scrivens from a hamstring injury Wednesday against the Bruins, and he'll be in line to assume the bulk of the starts for the Oilers while Fasth remains out of commission. Richard Bachman will stick with Edmonton as Scrivens' backup.

Fasth (knee) was moved to injured reserve Wednesday.The severity of Fasth's injury is still unknown, but by virtue of his placement on IR, he's have to sit out the Oilers' next three games, as he won't be eligible for activation until Feb. 24. Ben Scrivens, who had been dealing with a hamstring injury, was activated from IR to assume Fasth's roster spot. Fasth has been plagued by injuries throughout his tenure with the Oilers and has been horrible in his 26 games with the team this season, going 6-15-3 with a 3.41 GAA and .888 save percentage.

Fasth surrendered three goals on 15 shots before he was pulled after in the first minute of second period in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Senators.Backup Richard Bachman came on and was equally horrid in relief, so Fasth's standing as the team's No. 1 goalie shouldn't change. That being said, Fasth is 2-4-0 over six February starts, posting a 3.72 GAA and .875 save percentage. Even in leagues that start multiple goalies, fantasy owners might be better off leaving a slot empty rather than deploying Fasth.

Fasth led the Oilers on the ice for pregame warmups and will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Senators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.Fasth will make his third straight turn with Ben Scrivens (hamstring) facing an indefinite return date. With save percentages below .900 in his previous three outings and a .889 mark over 24 games on the season, Fasth should be avoided even against a relatively low-scoring squad like the Senators.
