Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Tallies first goal of season

Ekman-Larsson scored his first goal of the 2017-18 season in a 6-2 loss against the Bruins on Saturday.

Scoring, though, is never the defenseman's problem. That would be keeping his plus-minus in check. Last season, he recorded a career-worst minus-25 rating in 79 games, and he's off to another very poor start in the category with a minus-9 mark through five games. Ekman-Larsson hasn't posted a positive plus-minus rating since 2012-13. With that in mind, owners should approach the 26-year-old with a degree of caution, even if he is one of the more offensively gifted defensemen in the league.
