    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Sent to AHL Bakersfield

    Nilsson was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday, Jason Gregor of the Edmonton Journal reports. Nilsson's struggles in net this season (3.14 GAA, .901 save percentage) haven't done him any favors with the club, and he's now been sent to the AHL affiliate as a result. The 25-year-old Swede will likely rejoin the team again later in the campaign, while Laurent Brossoit was recalled to take his spot as the backup goaltender for the time being.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Pulled early in loss

    Nilsson allowed four goals on just 11 shots in Sunday's loss to the Islanders. Nilsson started this contest, and though he was pulled early, he ended up re-entering after backup Cam Talbot proved just as ineffective. The 25-year-old hasn't recorded a win since Dec. 11 -- a night in which he surrendered five goals -- so it's difficult to trust Nilsson even when he does get the starting nod.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: In net Sunday

    Nilsson will start in the crease Sunday against the Islanders. Nilsson made 11 saves on 12 shots in relief of Cam Talbot in Saturday's game, and will again be between the pipes Sunday. The start represents his first since Jan. 19 against the Lightning, and it will be a tough one against an Islanders club averaging 3.00 goals per game at home this season.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Allows five goals Tuesday

    Nilsson stopped just 25 of 30 shots in Tuesday's 6-4 defeat to Tampa Bay. Nilsson logged another disastrous outing for the Oilers, allowing five or more goals for the fourth time this season. The netminder has posted a 10-11-2 record, which may be one more win then starter Cam Talbot, but has registered a miserable 3.04 GAA. If the 25-year-old is in the crease for Edmonton, it may be advisable to look elsewhere for a goalie.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Receives starting nod Tuesday

    Nilsson will be in the crease in Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports. Nilsson was shaky in his last start, surrendering four goals on 21 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime loss to the Coyotes on Jan. 12. He'll look to bounce back Tuesday in a highly unfavorable matchup with a Lightning club that has won five consecutive games, potting at least three goals in each of those victories.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Falters in overtime

    Nilsson set aside 27 of 31 shots, ultimately taking an overtime loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday night. Nilsson jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the third period but ended up with the loss after allowing nine points between three players. Rookie forward Max Domi recorded a hat trick and blueliner Oliver Ekman-Larsson tallied four points and the game-winning goal. Michael Stone, another defenseman, showed up with two assists. Nilsson is now 10-10-2 with a 2.95 GAA and .906 save percentage.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Starting against Coyotes

    Nilsson gets first start of the new year against Arizona on Tuesday, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports. Nilsson has come up short in each of his last three starts, logging a 4.53 GAA in those contests. Last time the 25-year-old faced Arizona, he posted an atrocious .810 save percentage, allowing four pucks to get behind him in the loss. The netminder will be hoping to ring in 2016 with a win and restart his season.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Not good enough in relief appearance Tuesday

    Nilsson stopped 17 of 19 shots in relief of Cam Talbot Tuesday against the Kings. While Talbot was credited with the loss, Nilsson certainly didn't turn any heads with his performance. The 25-year-old was chased in his last start Sunday against Calgary, as the Oilers continue to have issues with their goaltending. Nilsson is now 10-10-1 on the season with a .908 save percentage. He's played 22 games this season, but Nilsson has been too unreliable and inconsistent to hold much fantasy value in anything but deeper leagues.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Chased by Flames Sunday

    Nilsson was pulled Sunday against Calgary after giving up four goals on 30 shots. Another rough outing for the 25-year-old, who has given up 17 goals in his last four appearances. Nilsson falls to 10-10-1 on the season with a .908 save percentage. He's been too inconsistent this year to be relied in in anything but deeper leagues.

    Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Starts Sunday

    Nilsson will start in goal Sunday against the Flames, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports. Nilsson will get the start between the pipes in the second game of a back-to-back set after sitting each of the last two games. The netminder struggled in his last outing, surrendering five goals on 24 shots, and he'll face another tough matchup Sunday against a Calgary club scoring 3.13 goals per game at home this season.
