Will eight be enough?
The Flyers have already used a franchise-record seven goaltenders this season and that number will increase by one after a midnight trade which brought veteran netminder Cam Talbot from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Anthony Stolarz.
Talbot, 31, is in his fifth NHL season. He has a 10-15-3 record with a 3.36 GAA and a .893 save percentage in 31 appearances for the Oilers this season.
In 227 career games for the Oilers over four seasons, Talbot has a 104-95-19 record with a 2.74 GAA and a .912 save percentage.
Talbot signed as a free agent with the New York Rangers on March 30, 2010 out of the University of Alabama-Huntsville, and made his NHL debut in Philadelphia on Oct. 24, 2013 after spending three seasons in the American Hockey League. He was acquired by the Oilers in exchange for three draft picks on June 27, 2015.
In 284 career NHL games, Talbot has a record of 137-110-24 with a 2.59 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
Stolarz appeared in 19 career games for the Flyers, including 12 this season. He has a career NHL record of 6-4-4 with a 2.86 GAA and a .911 save percentage. He was the club’s second-round selection (45th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
