Andrej Sekera, # 2
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
5161319-138
 
News
Sekera set up two goals Tuesday, contributing to a 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

This was the first multi-point effort by Sekara through 50 games this campaign. The 29-year-old has really struggled defensively in his first year donning an Oilers sweater, as evidenced by a minus-14 rating. He's a modest offensive contributor from the blue line with five goals and 13 assists.

Benoit Pouliot, # 67
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
43111526-726
 
News
Pouliot notched two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 7-2 lambasting of the Senators.

That's four points in two games coming out of the break for Pouliot, and circumstances suggest this may be a sustainable leap in production -- after all, they've come while he's played on a line with the freshly returned Connor McDavid and Jordan Eberle. That's a great situation for Pouliot, who should still be available off waivers in many season-long leagues and as a dirt-cheap option in daily formats.

Lauri Korpikoski, # 28
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
416814-66
 
News
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.

News
Eberle racked up two goals -- one on the power play -- as well as a power-play assist Thursda in a 7-2 trouncing of the Senators.

All the Oilers have to be thrilled to see Connor McDavid back in the lineup, but Eberle's been particularly enjoying it, having racked up five points in two games since McDavid's return -- that's more points than he put up in the eight games leading up to the All-Star break combined. It's been a disappointing, injury-shortened year for the incredibly talented 25-year-old, but with McDavid back, Eberle could explode offensively over the final 30 games of the season.

Zack Kassian, # 44
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
8224018
 
News
Kassian scored his second goal of the year on four shots Thursday in a 7-2 blowout of Ottawa.

With four points in eight games, Kassian's career in Edmonton is off to a promising start after his career with the Canadiens ended almost before it began. As expected, he's also provided a physical boost to the lineup, having racked up 18 PIM and 30 hits as an Oiler thus far.

News
Gryba scored his first goal of the season Tuesday night in a 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Evidently not wanting to be left out of the welcome back party for rookie Connor McDavid, Gryba launched a shot from the point that found the back of the net. Still, he's a physical depth defenseman that controls his own zone and isn't a guy you should be concerned with in the fantasy realm.

News
Talbot turned aside 36 of 38 shots Thursday in a 7-2 rout of the Senators -- his fourth win in six starts.

Boy, Talbot and the Oilers sure are glad to have Connor McDavid back, aren't they? The third-year man has worked his way back into the starting role after yielding it to Anders Nilsson for a stretch earlier in the season, and he's won two in a row coming out of the All-Star break, coinciding with McDavid's productive return to the lineup (as well as a couple friendly matchups). The Oilers are still probably going to finish as one of the NHL's worst teams, but things do look like they're trending up a little here.

News
Schultz (illness) returned to practice Wednesday.

Schultz ended up missing Tuesday's game because of an illness, but it appears the extra night's rest has placed the issue in the rearview mirror. Barring a setback of some kind, he should be good to go for Thursday's contest against the Senators.

News
Draisaitl contributed a goal and an assist to Thursday's 7-2 thrashing of the Senators.

That's goals in three straight and six points in the last six games for Draisaitl, who's been one of the Oilers' best players all year and now has the benefit of the freshly returned Connor McDavid drawing the attention of the opposition's top checkers. He's now hit 40 points for the first time in his career, and the sky's the limit moving forward from here.
