  • Ben Scrivens: Heads overseas on one-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/16/16) Scrivens signed a one-year contract with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL on Friday, TSN reports.

    Scrivens appeared in 15 games with the Canadiens last season, posting a 5-8-0 record with an ugly 3.07 GAA and .906 save percentage over that span. The 29-year-old backstop will hope to perform at a higher level against slightly lesser competition in the KHL, and may have played his last NHL contest.

    Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Clears waivers Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/16) Scrivens went unclaimed off of waivers Thursday and has been assigned to AHL St. John's, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

    Scrivens was the odd-man out when Montreal signed Charlie Lindgren. The 29-year-old spent ten games with AHL Bakersfield earlier in the 2015-16 campaign in which he posted a disappointing 2-6-1 record with a .893 save percentage. With the organization clearly looking to Lindgren as their future, the netminder could be looking for a new home next season.

    Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Places on waivers Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/16) Scrivens was placed on waivers by the Canadiens on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.

    The former Cornell standout has struggled at both the NHL and AHL levels, but has logged 15 games with the Habs this season, holding a 3.07 GAA and a .906 save percentage. If he clears waivers, he'll likely head to AHL St. John's for the duration of the season.

    Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Relieves Condon

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/16) Scrivens relieved Mike Condon in Saturday night's 5-2 loss to the Rangers. He entered the game to start the third period and stopped all four shots faced.

    Condon was chased after giving up five goals on 14 shots. Undoubtedly, the Canadiens have missed Carey Price this season, but their pop-gun offense makes it difficult for any goalie less than a Vezina-caliber backstop. Defensively, their middle of the pack in shots against and blocked shots, so they do a reasonable job of eliminating how much a goalie has to do, but neither Condon nor Scrivens have been a reasonable replacement for Price.

    Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Stops 36 in losing effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/16) Scrivens gave up four goals on 40 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.

    Montreal's ninth-worst defense was on display Thursday, leaving Scrivens out to dry as Detroit rained 21 shots on goal in the second period alone. The netminder has given up nine total tallies in his last two appearances, but the 29-year-old amassed 75 saves in that span, which shows he's capable of turning away attempts. However, whether it's Scriven or any other netminder between the pipes, the Canadien defense is a mess and that won't change this season.

  • April 12, 2015: Oilers' Scrivens Allows Six Goals In Finale
    Scrivens allowed six goals on 23 shots in Saturday's loss to the Canucks.Scrivens is probably really glad this mess of a season has come to an end. The 28-year-old goaltender finished the year with four straight losses, allowing a whopping 20 goals in that span. With a 15-26-11 record to go with a .890 save percentage and 3.16 GAA, Scrivens really wasn't of much fantasy value this season. If the Oilers can turn things around in 2015-16, Scrivens is a prime bounce-back candidate.

    April 2, 2015: Oilers Turn To Scrivens Thursday
    Scrivens will start in net Thursday against the Kings, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles News Group reports.Scrivens was all but guaranteed to start Thursday's contest with the news that Richard Bachman wouldn't be with the club for personal reasons. He struggled in his last start Wednesday, allowing five goals to the Ducks, and will face another tough opponent in the Kings on Thursday, playing on back-to-back nights.
