    Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Gathers two helpers

    Korpikoski notched two helpers -- one on the power play -- Thursday in a 7-2 mauling of the Senators. Generally better known for his penalty killing, Korpikoski only saw 20 seconds of power-play time toward the end of this game, but still picked up the secondary assist on Brandon Davidson's goal. Don't expect a whole lot more of this from Korpikoski moving forward; even with the return of Connor McDavid energizing the Edmonton offense, the Finnish winger won't see any meaningful spike in production.

    Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Makes return to lineup

    Korpikoski (foot) made his return to the lineup after a three-game layoff Saturday against Nashville. Korpikoski has been a solid producer in the Oilers' bottom-six forward group this season, with six goals and six assists through 39 games. The vet should see himself in the lineup night in and night out as long as he stays healthy.

    Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Likely game-time call Saturday

    According to Oilers coach Todd McLellan, Korpikoski (foot) is likely to participate in pregame warmups and is shaping up to be a game-time decision for Saturday's home tilt against the Predators. Korpikoski has missed the past three games with his foot ailment. Even when the 29-year-old's been on the ice, the Oilers have kept his minutes somewhat limited. He's averaging 14:28 of ice time this campaign and this is the fourth straight year of diminishing ice time for Korpikoski, starting in the 2011-12 campaign when he averaged 17:08 with the Coyotes. Fantasy owners in shallow leagues probably don't find much value in a forward with just 12 points and a minus-7 rating through 38 contests.

    Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Powers Oilers with hat-trick performance

    Korpikoski scored a hat trick and fired six shots on goal in Friday's win over the Rangers. A dominant evening from the third-liner, who helped the Oilers to their fifth straight victory. Korpikoski now has six goals and eight points in 22 games on the season. Offensive nights like this are rare from him, especially considering he usually doesn't shoot much. Korpikoski's already matched his goal total from last season, though, so if he sticks on the second power-play unit and continues to shoot more, he could produce some more goals in a bottom-six role.
