    Oilers' Mark Letestu: Had 10 goals this season

    Letestu had 10 goals and 15 assists for Edmonton this past season. Letestu is a valuable third or fourth line center but the Oilers seem to have an abundance of this type of player. He will need to win a job in training camp to remain with the team.

    Oilers' Mark Letestu: Finds net in loss

    Letestu recorded a power-play goal and a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Coyotes. After registering zero goals and just five assists in his previous 24 outings, Letstu now has put up three goals and two assists in his last four games. While it is unlikely that this lukewarm streak will result in any scoring records being broken, it is good to at least see the 31-year-old getting a bit of his touch back during what has been a rough season for the center.

    Oilers' Mark Letestu: Explodes in win over Blues

    Letestu busted out Wednesday with a pair of power-play points -- a goal and an assist -- to go with an empty-netter in a 6-4 win over the Blues. Well, that came out of nowhere. In one game, Letestu put up as many points as he had in his prior 20. The 31-year-old took advantage in a big way of time on the power play alongside Connor McDavid, helping the Oilers build up a three-goal lead in the second period. He's been seeing consistent man-advantage minutes lately, but remains a risky fantasy option.

    Oilers' Mark Letestu: Four unsuccessful shots Monday

    Letestu fired four unsuccessful shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Predators. The 31-year-old veteran had four shots on goal in just 11 and a half minutes of playing time Monday night. Despite his best efforts, Letestu has been unable to score in the past 24 games. The fourth-line centerman is definitely not the strongest source of offense for the Oilers, but is valued for his physical game and consistency in the faceoff circle.

    Oilers' Mark Letestu: Nets two points against Bruins

    Letestu scored a shorthanded goal and added an assists in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Bruins. Edmonton's third-line center came up huge in this one, registering two points after coming in with just five in his first 25 games of the season. Letestu has never topped 34 points in a single campaign, but he can be expected to pick up his scoring pace a bit moving forward, as his 6.1 percent shooting percentage coming into this game was a career low.

    Oilers' Mark Letestu: Questionable for Wednesday

    Letestu (undisclosed) is questionable for Wednesday's tilt with Boston. There is no indication as to what exactly is hampering Letestu, but the 30-year old veteran shouldn't be a fantasy option regardless if he plays Wednesday or not. Letestu is a fourth-line caliber center at this point in his career, and has suffered in his third-line role this season. He has just five points and a minus-8 rating in 25 contests this campaign, while averaging 14:19 of ice per night.

  • Letestu Hoping To Return To Columbus Next Season

    News: Mark Letestu, an unrestricted free agent this offseason, hopes to return to the Blue Jackets, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "I see myself as having a role here," he said. "I feel like I bring a lot to the table, and I still think I can do that for years to come. I'm still hopeful that we'll get something worked out."
    Analysis: He finished the season with just seven goals, 13 points and a minus-9 rating in 54 games, but Mark Letestu won 52.9 percent of his faceoffs and he offers a great deal of versatility from the fourth line. The Jackets' youth movement started this season with Alex Wennberg and Marko Dano, though, and if more prospects need NHL ice time next season, there may not be room in Columbus for Letestu.
