Flyers acquire Talbot from Oilers for Stolarz

16 February 2019 08:15

The Edmonton Oilers have officially moved on from Cam Talbot, trading the goaltender to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Anthony Stolarz.

The Oilers signed Talbot to a three-year, $12.5million deal in 2016. He is in the final season of his deal, which carries a $4.166m cap hit.

Talbot came into the season as the Oilers' starter, but due to struggles early he was replaced by Mikko Koskinen – who was given a contract extension. Talbot is 10-15-3 with an .893 save percentage this season.

But the Flyers confirmed they had picked up Talbot, sending Stolarz in the other direction.

While he has had his struggles this season, Talbot is two years removed from finishing fourth in the Vezina Trophy voting, which is for the best goaltender in the NHL.

He will likely serve as the backup to rookie stud Carter Hart, who has amassed an 11-6-1 record with a .924 save percentage and 2.48 goals allowed average since joining the Flyers in December. He has led a charge which has seen Philadelphia get back into playoff contention after many thought they were out of it in December.

Stolarz has had some success with Philadelphia this season too as he is 4-3-3 with a shutout and a .902 save percentage.
