Oilers Swap Dubnyk For Scrivens

In two separate trades on Wednesday, the Oilers changed their backup goaltender by sending Devan Dubnyk to the Predators and acquiring Ben Scrivens from the Kings. In Nashville, this gives Dubnyk a chance to be the starter, pushing out Carter Hutton or Marek Mazanec. It also means Pekka Rinne will not be ready to return to action any time soon. In Los Angeles, Martin Jones can return to being the #2 goaltender after his hot start while Jonathan Quick was injured. Scrivens may have a chance to start more in Edmonton, as Ilya Bryzgalov has started 4 of the last 7, but he joins a worse defensive team.

Corey Crawford Out Three Weeks

Corey Crawford has been diagnosed with a groin injury that will keep him sidelined for three weeks. With Nikolai Khabibulin also on the shelf with a lower-body injury, GM Stan Bowman plans to stick with the tandem of Antti Raanta and Kent Simpson in the short term. Raanta has played well in limited action with the Blackhawks this season, posting a 3-0-1 record and 2.16 GAA. Simpson, at 21, has yet to play his first NHL game and has only three games worth of AHL experience.

Bowman plans to meet with his scouting team tomorrow to discuss external options, but expect Raanta to pick up the bulk of the starts until one of the top two goaltenders return.

Antti Raanta Steps In As #1 With Crawford Out

With Corey Crawford nursing a lower-body injury and unable to make the trip to Dallas, Raanta will assume No. 1 duties for the Blackhawks in the meantime. Coach Joel Quenneville doesn\\'t believe Crawford\\'s injury is \"too serious,\" but with two sets of back to back games this week (Tuesday & Wednesday and Saturday & Sunday), Raanta will likely see at least 2, if not more starts. This all depends on how long Crawford will be out, but Raanta has shown some great talent when given the chance. In his 5 appearances (3 starts) he has a sparkling 3-0-1 record, along with a 2.16 GAA and .923 save percentage.

All we do know about Crawford is it kept him from joining his teammates Monday when they boarded a charter flight to Dallas. The Hawks also recalled Kent Simpson from Rockford, and the 21-year-old is expected to serve as the backup to Antti Raanta against the Stars.

Ducks\' Depth Overflowing

From top to bottom, the Anaheim Ducks have an embarrassment of riches in goal.

Overflowing with size and long-term potential, the depth chart of Jonas Hiller, Viktor Fasth, Frederik Andersen, John Gibson, and Igor Bobkov is arguably the best in the National Hockey League.

To highlight their individual value, look no further than their international experience. Hiller will once again be the backbone of Switzerland\\'s Olympic team, Fasth carried Sweden in the 2011 and 2012 World Championships, Andersen led Denmark to two gold medals during his junior career, Gibson dominated for Team USA in the 2013 World Juniors, and Bobkov won gold with Russia in the 2011 World Juniors.

If that wasn\\'t enough, a report from Elias Sports recently revealed that only three active NHL goalies have won their first four starts, two of them belonging to Anaheim. After stopping 100 of his first 105 NHL shots over the past two weeks, Andersen joined Fasth and Kari Lehtonen in this exclusive club.

Tim Thomas Update

Scott Clemmensen showed in D.C. last week that he can once again be a capable backup to Thomas, who practiced completely today and even tested out his new mask by purposely taking several pucks to the head -- a dangerous, quirky way to test out a mask but then again it\'s Tim Thomas.

While Dineen rarely gives away his starting goalies in advance and didn\'t again on Wednesday, he did say that if Thomas keeps practicing like today then he would return sooner than later. Thomas wasn\'t made available to the media as he\'s still on injured reserve and that\'s generally the team policy.

So don\'t rule Thomas out for a big homecoming at the T.D. Garden tomorrow night. He is certainly going to be the center of attention at morning skate by the Boston media.

NHL Depth Charts

The Goalie Guild\'s latest NHL Depth Charts report has been updated through November 5, 2013 and is now available as a free download.

The first month of the season is complete and we\'ve seen quite a few goalies have surprising starts to the 2013-14 campaign. At the top of that list would be Josh Harding and Steve Mason, two goalies that had very low expectations heading into training camp. Harding\'s inspiring play amidst his Multiple Sclerosis issues have sparked the Wild to a great start, while Mason has been labeled the Flyers\' best player so far this season.

Steve Mason Value Rising

In the previous four seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets, Mason was one of the most frustrating goalies for fantasy players to own. Known as the goalie that won the Calder Trophy primarily due to coach Ken Hitchcock\'s defensive system, after his rookie season he posted goals-against averages of 3.06, 3.03, 3.39, and 2.95 (prior to being traded), respectively.

Due to his inconsistency, Mason was drafted in 11 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues this season, averaging out as the 162nd pick. Even after his strong start, he\\'s owned in 47 percent of Yahoo leagues, which proves many people still are quite hesitant to add him.

That said, now might be the perfect time to take the leap. He either makes a great buy-low/sell-high candidate, or he fills a gap when an injury occurs.

Despite a 3-6-0 record this season, Mason has yet to allow more than three goals in a game and has finished every start. Combined with his eighth-best .928 save percentage is an impressive .939 power-play save percentage, which is second in the NHL to the Ottawa Senators\\' Robin Lehner (.974) for any goalie that has faced 30-plus power-play shots.
