Ekman-Larsson made up for his minus-3 rating with a goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Chicago. Ekman-Larsson predictably picked up two of his three points on the power play, and now has 18 points with the man advantage to go along with 19 at even strength. The offensive-minded blueliner is on pace to top 20 goals for the second straight season, which makes his subpar minus-7 rating much easier to swallow.
Ekman-Larsson scored his 13th goal of the season Thursday in a 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit. OEL now has three goals and four assists in his past four games. This shouldn't be surprising for one of the league's best defenseman, who should surpass the 20-goal mark for the second straight year and contend for the Norris Trophy. He's a big reason why Arizona's in playoff position right now and a must-own in all fantasy leagues.
Ekman-Larsson blew up with a four-point effort Tuesday night in a 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers. In addition to a game-winning, power-play goal, the defenseman was the first to set up all three goals by Max Domi. Ekman-Larsson was credited with three secondary assists, two of which took place on the man advantage. The instinctual blueliner is masterful when it comes to power- play situations, showing a great deal of patience in order to direct quality plays from the point. Ekman-Larsson has 32 points this season and 15 of those have been recorded during a power play. He's a stud in the fantasy realm.
Ekman-Larsson scored on a late-first-period power play Thursday in a 2-1 win over Calgary. Anyone who was worried that the studly 24-year-old blueliner was a bit off last year's goal pace is surely feeling settled now, as OEL's put up four goals and three assists over the last seven games. He's on pace to nearly equal last seasons's 23 goals, and he's going to blow by the 20 assists he put up last season. Ekman-Larsson would only need to bump his production up by one notch to find his way to 60 points for the first time.
Ekman-Larsson piled on three assists in Tuesday's loss to the Blackhawks. It was a crazy game between the two teams, as the Blackhawks and Coyotes combined to score 12 goals. Ekman-Larsson has been very good of late, notching seven goals (three points) in his last six games. The minute-muncher logged a whopping 29:29 of ice time Tuesday and now has 25 points in 36 games. The 24-year-old is an automatic roll every game.
