Getting Viktor Fasth from the Anaheim Ducks will cost the Edmonton Oilers a 2015 third-round pick and a 2014 fifth-round selection.
That's not a bad haul for Fasth, given that he's only played in five NHL games this season. Fasth is signed through the 2014-15 campaign, so this is not a rental for the Oilers.

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Viktor Fasth from the Anaheim Ducks.
We're waiting to find out what Anaheim will get in return. Edmonton will pair up Fasth with Ben Scrivens now that Ilya Bryzgalov has been sent to Minnesota. Look for Fasth and Scrivens to split the Oilers' playing time pretty evenly for the remainder of the 2013-14 campaign.

It is expected that Viktor Fasth will be recalled before the Ducks next game which takes place on Wednesday at home against Montreal.
Fasth was sent to the minors on a conditioning stint over a week ago and played five games as he had been out of action since November 18th with a lower body injury. Fasth was 3-2 with Norfolk of the AHL with a 2.40 GAA and a .922 save percentage. He took the NHL by storm last season with a 2.18 GAA and a .921 save percentage to go with a 15-6-2 mark but was only 2-2-1 this season with a 2.95 GAA and a .885 save percentage. Look for Fredrik Andersen to be sent to the minors while Fasth backs up Jonas Hiller.

The Anaheim Ducks have sent goaltender Viktor Fasth (lower body) to the minors on a long-term conditioning stint.
Fasth has been out of action since November 18 but played his first game since then as he stopped 29 of 32 shots. His Norfolk Admirals dropped a 4-1 decision to Albany. Fasth was highly regarded coming into this season as the 31-year-old sophomore had a great start to his career in 2012-13, winning his first eight games and ending the season with a 2.18 GAA and a .921 save percentage. But he was only 2-2-1 with a 2.95 GAA and a .885 save percentage before getting hurt.

Viktor Fasth, out since late November due to a lower body muscle inflammation, will soon be ready to return to the Anaheim lineup, according to coach Bruce Boudreau.
Boudreau deemed Fasth "fully ready to go" when asked today, but with Jonas Hiller and Frederik Andersen both enjoying solid seasons it's uncertain when the Anaheim goalie will see game action.
