Ducks goaltender Viktor Fasth has been named to Sweden's 2014 Olympic Camp roster.
The 30-year-old netminder made his North American and NHL debut with Anaheim in 2012-13, posting a 15-6-2 record with a 2.18 GAA, .921 SV% and four shutouts.
Fasth became the third NHL goaltender all-time to win his first eight-or-more career decisions, joining Ray Emery of Ottawa (NHL record 9-0-0 from 2003-05, 12 games) and Bob Froese of Philadelphia (8-0-0 in 1983). Fasth was the first goalie to start a season 8-0-0 since Tim Thomas of Boston in 2010 (the eight-game winning streak was the longest in the NHL since a nine-game streak by Marc-Andre Fleury of Pittsburgh from Feb. 21-Mar. 17, 2012). He was also the first goaltender to win his first four NHL appearances since Nolan Schaefer (with San Jose) won his first five games from Oct. 26-Nov. 4, 2005 (streak was broken by no-decision in his fifth game in relief on Feb. 8).
Fasth became the first goaltender in club history to win his first eight decisions as a Duck (previous mark held by Ray Emery in 2010-11, 6 consecutive wins), and completed the season ranked 12th in the NHL in GAA, 13th in SV%, and tied for sixth in shutouts. Fasth was named the NHL's Second Star of the Week for Feb. 11-17, going 3-0-0 with a 1.89 GAA and .935 SV%.
