  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Enters in relief

    Pickard stopped 13 of 14 shots in relief of Stuart Skinner on Thursday in a 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.

    Pickard started the second period in net after Skinner surrendered four goals in the opening frame. Colorado would ease off the throttle, scoring just once on Pickard, though Edmonton couldn't overcome the early deficit, leaving Skinner with the loss. The 32-year-old Pickard was solid in a backup role during the regular season, going 12-7-1 with a .909 save percentage and 2.45 GAA.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Gives up four goals in loss

    Pickard allowed four goals on 23 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

    Pickard has lost four of his last six outings, giving up 19 goals in that span. The 32-year-old dropped to 12-7-1 with a 2.48 GAA and a .908 save percentage through 22 appearances this season. The Oilers are locked in to the No. 2 spot in the Pacific Division, so they have no motivation to play starter Stuart Skinner versus the Avalanche on Thursday in the regular-season finale, but the team has not announced its goaltending plan for that contest yet.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Slated to face Coyotes

    Pickard is expected to start on the road against Arizona on Wednesday, per Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network.

    Pickard will get a chance to rebound after stopping 25 of 28 shots en route to a 3-2 overtime loss to the Coyotes in his last start Friday. He has a 12-6-1 record, 2.41 GAA and .912 save percentage in 21 contests this season. Edmonton is resting defensemen Darnell Nurse and Cody Ceci against Arizona, which might make Pickard's task somewhat tougher.

For the season, the 31-year-old is 12-6-0 with a 2.38 GAA and a .913 save percentage through 20 outings in a backup role.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Falls to Dallas

    Four of Dallas' goals came in the final seven minutes of the second period while Edmonton failed to crack Jake Oettinger on the other end, sticking Pickard with a 5-0 defeat. The 31-year-old netminder had been playing well coming into Wednesday's outing, going 3-1-0 over his prior four starts with a .935 save percentage while earning more playing time behind Stuart Skinner. Overall, Pickard is now 11-6-0 with a .911 save percentage and 2.40 GAA on the campaign.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Guarding road goal Wednesday

    Pickard is expected to start on the road against Dallas on Wednesday, per Tony Brar of Oilers TV.

    Pickard has been a solid backup goaltender this year, posting an 11-5-0 record, 2.24 GAA and .915 save percentage in 18 appearances. He saved 21 of 22 shots en route to a 6-1 win over Anaheim in his last start Saturday. The Stars rank third offensively with 3.64 goals per game, so they figure to be a challenging adversary.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Sharp in Saturday's win

    Pickard turned aside 21 shots in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

    Alex Killorn spoiled his shutout bid late in the third period on an Anaheim power play, forcing Pickard to settle for his 11th win of the season. The 31-year-old netminder saw consistent action in March, going 4-2-0 in seven outings with an impressive 1.76 GAA and .933 save percentage, but none of his starts came against teams headed to the playoffs and he remains firmly behind Stuart Skinner on the Oilers depth chart.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Struggles vs. Ottawa

    Pickard allowed four goals on 15 shots in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Senators.

    It was a rough outing for Pickard, as the four goals against were the most he's allowed in a start since Dec. 16.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Tending twine Tuesday

    Pickard is coming off a 41-save performance in a win over Pittsburgh on March 10. Through 14 appearances with the Oilers this season, he has a 9-4-0 record with a 2.27 GAA and a .919 save percentage. The Canadiens rank 27th in the league with 2.72 goals per contest this campaign.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Perfect, but no shutout

    Pickard stopped all 41 shots he faced in a 4-0 win over the Penguins on Sunday.

    Late in the second period, Pickard had to retreat to the locker room to be examined after getting run into, and that was what cost him the shutout. Stuart Skinner didn't face a shot during his brief 1:16 of ice time. Fantasy managers who streamed Pickard will feel a little hard done by, but he still turned in a stellar performance in the second half of a back-to-back. He's now 9-4-0 with a 2.27 GAA and a .919 save percentage over 14 appearances this season. The Oilers have just two games in the coming week, so Pickard is unlikely to see much playing time in the near future.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Starting in Pittsburgh

    Pickard will guard the road net Sunday versus the Penguins, Tony Brar of Oilers TV reports.

    Pickard took the loss in his last outing, allowing three goals on 33 shots Thursday against Columbus. The 31-year-old netminder will look to bounce back against the Penguins, who have scored just once in their last two contests.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Ambushed in Columbus

    Pickard stopped 30 of 33 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets, with Columbus' final goal coming into an empty net.

    All three goals against Pickard were scored in the first period, and while he shut the door the rest of the way, the Oilers' offense never really got rolling. The 31-year-old netminder continues to be a solid backup to Stuart Skinner and hasn't allowed more than three goals in an outing since Dec. 16. Pickard sports a 7-2-0 record over his last nine starts with a 2.23 GAA and .913 save percentage.

    Pickard will be between the road pipes versus Columbus on Thursday, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports.

    Pickard is 7-1-0 in his last eight starts with a 2.13 GAA and a .914 save percentage. He has provided the Oilers with outstanding backup goaltending -- Jack Campbell was unable to do so earlier in the year before he was demoted to the AHL. Pickard is 8-3-0 with a 2.40 GAA and a .909 save percentage this season. He will take on the Blue Jackets, who are in last place in the Eastern Conference with 52 points.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Cruises to win

    Pickard stopped 22 of 23 shots in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Penguins.

    The lone goal against Pickard was Evgeni Malkin's late tally in the third period to break up the shutout bid. While his playing time is limited, Pickard has been solid when called upon. He has won five of his six outings in 2024, allowing no more than three goals in any of them. For the season, he's at 8-3-0 with a 2.40 GAA and a .909 save percentage. Pickard's strong play as a backup has quelled the concern that the Oilers need to add a goalie ahead of Friday's trade deadline.
