  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Records five blocks against old mates

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/17) Russell recorded a game-high five blocked shots to go along with three hits in Saturday's 2-1 win against the Flames.

    Russell has given his new team very little in the way of offense, posting no goals with just five assists. However, he has 106 blocked shots through 38 games to rank No. 1 in the Western Conference, and No. 3 in the NHL. He remains a solid source of hits and blocked shots for fantasy owners in deeper formats.

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/19/16) Russell (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Stars, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.

    Russell is a useful commodity in leagues that award blocked shots and heavy minutes, as he's averaging 2.82 blocked shots and 21:03 of ice time per game this season. The 29-year-old blueliner is expected to skate with Andrej Sekera on the Oilers' second pairing in Saturday's contest.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Might return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/16) Russell (undisclosed) has been on the ice the past two days and Oilers coach Todd McLellan said the defenseman could return Saturday, when the team plays the Stars on the road, Abbey Mastracco of NHL.com reports.

    The bench boss added that Russell and forward Matt Hendricks (lower body) will be checked out following Friday's practice. At that point, it could be known whether Russell will be fit to suit up for the next contest. He's averaging 2.82 blocked shots per game and cannot return soon enough for an Edmonton team that has allowed 13 goals over the past four contests -- all loses.
