Insight: His recovery timetable is 4-to-5 months. The 40-year-old wouldn't have been a factor had he been healthy anyway. Khabibulin is buried behind Corey Crawford and Antti Raanta on the team's depth chart.
 
11/16/2013 8:56:00 PM
Description: Blackhawks backup goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin left Saturday's game in the first period due to an undisclosed injury. He was replaced by Corey Crawford.
Insight: The 40-year-old Khabibulin left the ice hunched over, according to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune. Khabibulin made just three starts previously this season and allowed 12 goals in 152 minutes.
 
11/16/2013 5:34:00 PM
Description: Blackhawks backup goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will draw the start Saturday at Nashville.
Insight: The 40-year-old Khabibulin has made just three starts previously this season and allowed 12 goals in 152 minutes (4.73 GAA). Even against a Predators team that has lost four straight games and scored two goals total in that span, he's not a good play Saturday.
 
10/29/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: Blackhawks backup goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will start between the pipes Tuesday against the Senators.
Insight: The 40-year-old Khabibulin has started just two games this season and gave up six goals on 26 shots to the Lightning in his last one.
 
10/10/2013 5:15:00 PM
Description: Blackhawks backup goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will get his first start of the season Friday against the Islanders.
Insight: Corey Crawford has started Chicago's first three games and is 1-1-1 with a 2.93 GAA and an .890 SV%. The 40-year-old Khabibulin went 4-6-1 with a 2.55 GAA and a .923 SV% in 12 appearances with the Oilers last season but isn't likely to be as valuable backing up Crawford as Ray Emery was last season.
 
3/28/2013 2:35:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will get another start between the pipes Thursday versus Columbus.
Insight: Khabibulin made his last start count with a 43 saves and a shutout against St. Louis on Tuesday. Look for the Oilers to roll with the hot hand between Khabibulin and Devan Dubnyk down the stretch.
 
3/26/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin blanked the Blues by saving 43 shots Tuesday night.
Insight: Khabibulin missed a month with an injury and he has been splitting time with Devan Dubnyk since returning on March 23. Tuesday's performance should get him more starts, but he's going to be risky for fantasy owners given Edmonton's poor defense.
 
3/26/2013 6:14:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will start Tuesday against the Blues.
Insight: Khabibulin allowed three goals to St. Louis in his last appearance after missing a month with an injury. He'll be splitting time with Devan Dubnyk going forward.
 
3/23/2013 8:55:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will start for the first time since Feb. 25 Saturday against the Blues.
Insight: Khabibulin (2-2-1, 2.12 GAA, .935 SV%) was activated from injured reserve on March 13 but Edmonton played just three games from March 13-22.
 
3/15/2013 11:23:00 AM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin (groin injury) is probable for Friday's game against Detroit.
Insight: Khabibulin's arrival sends Yann Danis back to the minors. Khabibulin (2-2-1, 2.11 GAA, .935 SV%) will likely stay in the backup role until the Oilers play back-to-back games on March 25 and 26.
 
3/13/2013 1:47:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin (groin injury) is probable for Friday's game against Detroit.
Insight: Khabibulin's arrival sends Yann Danis back to the minors. There is no word yet whether Khabibulin (2-2-1, 2.11 GAA, .935 SV%) will start on Friday or be the backup.
 
2/27/2013 5:59:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin has been placed on injured reserve with a groin injury.
Insight: Khabibulin was hurt Monday against Chicago. He had been cutting into Devan Dubnyk's playing time, starting three of the last four games for Edmonton.
 
2/23/2013 7:11:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin saved 34 of 36 shots and stopped both of Phoenix' shootout attempts in a 3-2 win Saturday.
Insight: Khabibulin has started two of the last three games for Edmonton. His effort Saturday should help that trend to continue.
 
2/23/2013 3:15:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will start Saturday's game against Phoenix.
Insight: This will be Khabibulin's second start in the last three games. Starter Devan Dubnyk has allowed 10 goals over his last 139 minutes (4.31 GAA).
 
2/19/2013 5:25:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will get the start between the pipes Tuesday night against the Kings.
Insight: It will be Khabibulin's second start of the season. The backup may have earned himself more playing time by holding Colorado to one goal in 40 minutes Saturday after relieving Devan Dubnyk. Dubnyk had given up three goals in the first period.
 
2/9/2013 5:35:00 PM
Description: Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin started Saturday for the first time since March 30, 2012 and he looked good in a loss to Detroit.
Insight: Detroit sent 30 shots at Khabibulin but he stopped 28 in a tough-luck loss. The veteran had offseason hip surgery and Devan Dubnyk started the first 10 games for Edmonton. Now that Khabibulin is healthy, we could see more of a split with the goaltending starts.
 
1/30/2013 5:40:00 PM
Description: Edmonton Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin (hip surgery) has been cleared to play but he won't start Wednesday against Phoenix.
Insight: Khabibulin went 12-20-7 with a .910 SV% and 2.65 GAA last season. Devan Dubnyk has started the first five games for the Oilers, going 3-2 with a 3.18 GAA and .907 save percentage, and he'll man the crease again Wednesday.
 
1/30/2013 10:07:00 AM
Description: Edmonton Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin (hip surgery) flew with the team to Phoenix and could get a start in one of the games on their current road trip.
Insight: Khabibulin went 12-20-7 with a .910 SV% and 2.65 GAA last season. Devan Dubnyk has been in the net for all five Oilers' games this season going 3-2 with a 3.18 GAA and .907 save percentage.
 
1/18/2013 5:21:00 PM
Description: Edmonton Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin (hip) will begin the season on the injured list. SOURCE: Dan Tencer, 630 CHED
Insight: Khabibulin went 12-20-7 with a .910 SV% and 2.65 GAA last season and finished as the 48th best goaltender in default Yahoo! leagues. Devan Dubnyk will serve as the starting netminder for the time being, with Yann Danis serving as a backup. Dubnyk started 47 games last season for Edmonton and won 20 with a .914 SV% and 2.67 GAA.
 
1/17/2013 2:53:00 PM
