  • Oilers' Nikita Nikitin: Promoted from AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/29/16) Nikitin was recalled by the Oilers on Monday, Jason Gregor of the Edmonton Journal reports.

    Nikitin is essentially swapping places with defenseman Darnell Nurse, who was reassigned to AHl Bakersfield on Monday. Due to the Oilers' rash of blue-line injuries, the 29-year-old Russian should have a good chance of earning some playing time, possibly on the third defensive pairing alongside Adam Clendening. Nikitin has just one assists in eight games this season with Edmonton, so it would be wise to temper expectations.

    Oilers' Nikita Nikitin: Sent to Bakersfield

    (2/21/16) Nikitin was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Sunday.

    Nikitin drew into Saturday's contest after being recalled Wednesday, but it appears the Oilers weren't exactly impressed with what they saw. As a result, the 29-year-old blueliner will return to the AHL affiliate in favor of Jordan Oesterle, who was recalled in a corresponding move. A borderline NHL player, Nikitin doesn't offer much appeal in terms of fantasy.

    (2/17/16) Nikitin was recalled by the Oilers on Wednesday.

    Edmonton's defensive corps has been decimated by injury of late, as Andrew Ference (hip), Oscar Klefbom (infection), and Eric Gryba (knee) are all currently dealing with long-term ailments. Nikitin will provide the Oilers with some additional depth at defense, but won't be on many fantasy owners' radars, as he's only managed to tally a single assist and nine shots on goal in seven games with the big club this season.
