Dave Tippett didn’t chop up any words after the Oilers’ defeat by the Flames and said that they have to play better in front of the goalkeeper and get more saves from the goalkeeper himself

Edmonton Oilers goalkeeper Mike Smith will have his first start of the season against the Ottawa Senators on Monday night, the team announced

The Oilers, currently 6-7 with no net depth, have waived Troy Grosenick pending Smith’s return Grosenick was brought in after Smith was placed in a long-term injured reserve earlier this month

“I’m very excited to be back online,” said Smith, “I feel in a good place mentally and physically”

Smith returned to the Oilers on a $ 2 million one-year contract last off-season. The 38-year-old competed in 39 games for Edmonton in 2019-20, won 19 of his 37 starts and had a 902 percent save and 295 Goals against the average

Mikko Koskinen has started 12 of the Oilers’ 13 games so far, with Stuart Skinner serving as a substitute
