Description: The Oilers acquired Viktor Fasth from the Ducks on Tuesday for two draft picks.
Insight: Fasth has played just five games this season and zero since Nov. 18 due to injuries after going 15-6-2 with a 2.18 GAA and a .921 SV% as a rookie in 2012-13. He'll serve as a backup to Ben Scrivens.
 
1/17/2014 9:48:00 AM
Description: Anaheim goalie Victor Fasth's 3-to-4 week lower body injury is now in week No. 8 with no word of a comeback.
Insight: Fasth (2-2-1, 2.95 GAA, .885 SV%) had mostly taken a back seat to a hot Jonas Hiller, but was a solid option last season going 15-6 with a 2.18 GAA, .921 SV% and four shutouts.
 
12/20/2013 10:16:00 AM
Description: Anaheim goalie Victor Fasth was supposed to miss 3-to-4 weeks with a lower body injury, but we've heard nothing about a return at this point.
Insight: Fasth (2-2-1, 2.95 GAA, .885 SV%) had mostly taken a back seat to Jonas Hiller early on, but was a solid option last season going 15-6 with a 2.18 GAA, .921 SV% and four shutouts.

Description: Anaheim goalie Victor Fasth is out 3-to-4 weeks with a lower body injury. SOURCE: Associated Press
Insight: Apparently he's dealing with some muscle inflammation. Fasth has mostly taken a back seat to Jonas Hiller anyway. This injury shouldn't have a major fantasy impact.
 
11/22/2013 5:45:00 PM
Description: Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth will start Friday against the Lightning.
Insight: Fasth returned from a month-long absence last Friday and has allowed five goals in his last two starts. This will be his third start in the last four games. The team is reportedly shopping Jonas Hiller to the Nashville Predators, which would open up the starting job for Fasth and the backup spot for Frederik Andersen, who went 6-1-0 with a 1.66 GAA and a .943 SV% when Fasth was out.
 
11/18/2013 3:53:00 PM
Description: Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth will be between the pipes for Anaheim's game in Pittsburgh on Monday night.
Insight: Fasth will make his second consecutive start despite losing 3-2 in a shootout to Carolina in his last game. He missed about a month of action with a lower body injury. Jonas Hiller (7-3-1) will get another night of rest.
 
10/22/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth is questionable for Tuesday's game against Toronto with a lower body injury
Insight: Jonas Hiller is 4-0-0 with a 2.01 GAA and a .937 SV% and figures to get all the work until Fasth is ready to get back to work. Call him day-to-day.
 
10/16/2013 6:35:00 PM
Description: Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth will start Wednesday against Calgary.
Insight: Fasth has gone 1-1 with a 4.00 GAA and an .826 SV% so far while Jonas Hiller is 3-0 with a 1.30 GAA and a .959 SV%, but the team has maintained an even split of starts through the first six games.
 
3/15/2013 10:53:00 AM
Description: Anaheim Ducks' goaltender Viktor Fasth suffered an upper-body injury Tuesday morning and missed Tuesday's game, but practiced Thursday and could be available for Saturday versus St. Louis.
Insight: Fasth is a stunning 10-1-1 with a 1.92 GAA and .929 save percentage. Jonas Hiller has won his last seven starts and is 10-2-2 with a 2.56 GAA and .911 save percentage. Ducks' coach Bruce Boudreau has a nice problem - two hot goaltenders.
 
3/12/2013 7:02:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth suffered an upper-body injury Tuesday morning and won't make his scheduled start Tuesday night. Jonas Hiller will start instead. SOURCE: Eric Stephens, Orange County Register
Insight: Fasth shut out Calgary in his last start to improve to 10-1-1 with a 1.92 GAA. Hiller has started three of the last four games prior to Tuesday and picked up a shutout of his own last week.
 
3/12/2013 6:20:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth will draw the start Tuesday against Minnesota.
Insight: Fasth shut out Calgary in his last start to improve to 10-1-1 with a 1.92 GAA. He should be owned in all leagues even with Jonas Hiller drawing three of the last four starts and picking up a shutout of his own on March 6 against Phoenix.
 
3/8/2013 2:08:00 PM
Description: Ducks backup goaltender Viktor Fasth will start Friday against the Calgary.
Insight: Fasth is 9-1-1 on the season with a stellar 2.08 GAA and .922 save percentage and gives the Ducks two solid options between the pipes. If you are looking for part-time help with your goaltending statistics, he's a excellent choice.
 
2/27/2013 6:04:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth will start Wednesday against the Nashville Predators. Fasth suffered his first loss of the season on Monday.
Insight: Wednesday will give both Fasth and Jonas Hiller two starts each since the latter returned from an injury.
 
Hot2/20/2013 4:46:00 PM
Description: The Ducks have handed 30-year-old rookie goaltender Viktor Fasth a two-year contract extension. SOURCE: Orange County Register
Insight: Fasth's 8-0-0 record and 1.78 GAA have caused a shake-up to Anaheim's goaltending situation while Jonas Hiller has been out with an injury. Hiller returned Monday and played well so we will have to see how this situation shakes out.
 
Hot2/12/2013 5:40:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth has been confirmed as the starter for Tuesday's game versus the 10-0-2 Chicago Blackhawks. SOURCE: Orange County Register
Insight: Jonas Hiller is still dealing with a lower body injury. Fasth has won all five of his starts this season, including Saturday's game against the Blues despite allowing five goals. He has a 1.72 GAA this season and could challenge the slumping Hiller for the starting job when Hiller returns from an injury, but Fasth is a risky play against the scorching Blackhawks.
 
Hot2/12/2013 11:48:00 AM
Description: Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth is 5-0 this season with a 1.72 GAA and a .932 save percentage even after giving up five goals to St. Louis in a win on Saturday.
Insight: With Jonas Hiller still listed as questionable (lower body injury), Fasth is likely to get another start on Tuesday versus Chicago. The Blackhawks are smoking hot (10-0-2 with 42 goals) so starting Fasth on Tuesday would be a big gamble despite his undefeated record.
 
Hot2/9/2013 3:02:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth will start Saturday's game versus St. Louis.
Insight: Jonas Hiller started between the pipes Friday night but he gave up two first-period goals before leaving with a lower-body injury. Fasth has outperformed Hiller so far with a 4-0 record and a 1.06 GAA.
 
Hot2/7/2013 9:47:00 AM
Description: Anaheim netminder Viktor Fasth was a perfect 31-for-31 on save opportunities Wednesday against the Avalanche.
Insight: Wednesday was Fasth's first NHL shutout. The 30-year-old rookie is a perfect 4-0 with a stunning .962 save percentage in his first four games. Fasth is still available in almost 47 percent of ESPN leagues. If you're in one of those leagues, make sure you pick him up now before it's too late.
 
2/6/2013 6:06:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth will start Wednesday against Colorado. SOURCE: Orange County Register
Insight: Fasth (3-0-0, 1.30 GAA, .946 SV%) beat the Sharks Monday to become the first goalie in Ducks history to win his first three NHL starts. Jonas Hiller hasn't played well in his five starts this season (3.54 GAA, .871 SV%) so Fasth should earn himself more playing time if he keeps playing well.
 
2/1/2013 5:16:00 PM
Description: The Ducks will go with Viktor Fasth Friday against Minnesota.
Insight: Fasth beat Nashville 3-2 in a shootout in his only start of the season.
