[Signing] Viktor Fasth signs in KHL

Recommended Posts

UFA ‘tender heads to CSKA:

Former Ducks and Oilers goalie Viktor Fasth is on his way to Russia.

On Thursday, Fasth reportedly agreed to join KHL powerhouse CSKA Moscow, the club announced. The deal comes after the 32-year-old failed to latch on with a new NHL club in free agency.

Fasth had a rough year in Edmonton last season, going 6-15-3 with a 3.41 GAA and .888 save percentage. The Swedish ‘tender, acquired from the Ducks for a pair of picks at the 2014 trade deadline, was really never able to replicate the success he had during his first season (’13) in Anaheim, when he burst onto the scene by going 15-6-2 with a .921 save percentage and 2.18 GAA, recording four shutouts.

Fasth’s first year in the NHL also began with eight straight victories, which netted him a two-year, $5.8 million extension from the Ducks.

When the Oil signed him I remember checking out their boards and bunch of their posters were thinking he was going to be some sort of savior.

Same thing with Scribs.

Eventually you would think they'd stop signing other teams back ups or 1b type goalies and go for a true #1 I know that not a lot of them want to sign in Edmonton but you'd figure a GM would overpay or something for such an important position.
