ESPN.com news services

EDMONTON. Alberta --The Edmonton Oilers are turning to another veteran goaltender.

Edmonton signed 36-year-old Nikolai Khabibulin to a four-year, 15-million deal on Wednesday. He'll replace Dwayne Roloson, who signed earlier in the day with the New York Islanders.

The deal is for four years, $15 million.

Khabibulin is a former Stanley Cup winner who spent last season with the Chicago Blackhawks.

He went 25-8-7 with a 2.33 goals-against average and .919 save percentage despite missing time due to a nagging groin injury.

"Nikolai is a world-class goaltender who has proven himself throughout his career as one of the best in the game," Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini said in a release. "He has had success at many levels of hockey and we're looking forward to seeing him continue that success here in Edmonton."

Khabibulin joins his fifth NHL team after stops with the Blackhawks, Tampa Bay Lightning, Phoenix Coyotes and Winnipeg Jets. He was the starter when the Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2004.
