      Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Is overtime hero Friday

      Larsson scored the overtime-winning goal Friday against Calgary. It was the fifth goal of the season for Larsson and his third game winner -- talk about delivering in the clutch. The 24-year-old blueliner has produced 15 points in 24 games this season and sits 29th in the NHL with an impressive 65 shots on goal. While it's very unlikely he matches the 23 goals he scored last season, Larsson has scored four times in his last seven outings and is firing tons of pucks on net, so expect him to continue finding twine. The minute-muncher is an all-around fantasy asset and one of the best owns on the blueline.

After notching just one point through the first four games, Ekman-Larsson has heated up of late, collecting five points (all assists) through the next five games.

      Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Sets up game-tying goal in loss Tuesday

      Ekman-Larsson tallied an assist and skated a game-high 28:41 in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Devils. Ekman-Larsson got the primary assist on Mikkel Boedker's game-tying goal with 50 seconds left in regulation to force overtime, but Arizona would fall shortly after, 3-2. It was just the third point in six games for the Coyotes' top defenseman, who is no stranger to the scoresheet. He now has assists in back-to-back games, so it's something to build on.

      Coyotes D Oliver Ekman-Larsson pots goal in season opener

      Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson picked up where he left off last season with a goal Friday against the Kings. Ekman-Larsson, the Coyotes' leading scorer from last season, floated into the slot where Max Domi found him for Arizona's second goal. It was a play you would expect from the offensive-minded defenseman, as he abandoned his post at the blue line to create a scoring chance. It paid off, and would prove to be the decisive goal in the game. He played 5:11 of the Coyotes 6:00 on the man advantage. As long as he's healthy, Ekman-Larsson shouldn't leave your lineup.

He also took a career-high 264 shots, an increase of nearly one-third over the previous year, and 20 points on the power play to become a true offensive force from the blue line. He is coming into his own at just 23-years-old and should be among the top defensemen selected in drafts next year.

He's now hit 40 points for the second straight season, and it's suddenly looking likely that he'll clear last year's 44 before all's said and done.

    • Ekman-Larsson Tallies Both Arizona Goals In Loss

      News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson was the whole of the Coyotes' offense Thursday, as he took nine shots and scored his 18th and 19th goals of the year in a 5-2 loss to the Avalanche.
      Analysis: The markers snapped a three-game stretch of point-getting futility for OEL and a goalless skid more than a month long, dating back to Feb. 16. On any other team, he'd be one of the most valuable defensemen in fantasy, as Oliver Ekman-Larsson now leads all NHL blueliners in goals, but the context of playing for the Coyotes has not been kind to him, as he has only 16 assists on the year and a minus-20 rating. If he doesn't score the goals on this team, no one does.
