Larsson finished Saturday's win over Detroit with two assists, a plus-2 rating and a team-leading three blocked shots. This is about the best night you can expect from the 24-year-old. Through 62 games, he has three goals and 17 points. Three goals ties his career high and he's been a 3.5-percent shooter over the course of his career, so his numbers are right in line with his typical output.
Larsson (lower body) is in the lineup for Sunday's away game against the Predators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports. Larsson returns to the lineup after missing the previous two games with the minor ailment. He'll likely round out the third defensive pairing with Darnell Nurse, who is returning Sunday after missing 35 games. Eric Gryba and Brandon Davidson will be the resulting healthy scratches.
Larsson (lower body) was on the ice with the Oilers for Saturday's practice, Bob Stauffer of 630 CHED reports. After missing two consecutive games, the Swedish defenseman was skating with the Oilers on Saturday. This should bode well with Larsson's fantasy owners, as his next opportunity to play is Sunday in Nashville. The first-round pick rarely lights up the stat sheet, but over eight February games he has recorded 25 hits and 16 blocked shots. If your league values true defensemen, Larsson's return is one to keep an eye on.
Larsson (lower body) will miss Thursday's road contest versus the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. This is will be the second consecutive absence for the two-way defenseman, who added that he hopes to return for Sunday's game when the Oilers visit Nashville to take on the Predators. Subjected to a curious offseason trade that saw stud forward Taylor Hall wind up in New Jersey, Larsson is on pace to approach the 20-point mark having already matched his shots output of 65 from last season in 23 fewer games.
Larsson will not suit up for Wednesday's away game against the Panthers due to a lower-body injury. It's unclear how exactly Larsson sustained this injury, but he'll miss just his second game of the season and his first since Jan. 14. Eric Gryba will likely draw into the lineup Wednesday, while either Matt Benning or Kris Russell are good bets to join Oscar Klefbom on the top defensive pairing.
