Larsson compiled two assists to go along with another pair of blocked shots and six hits in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Kings. Three Oilers defensemen -- including Darnell Nurse and Oscar Klefbom -- combined for seven points in the high-scoring affair. For Larsson, it was his first multi-point game of the 2018-19 campaign.
Larsson recorded a helper and five shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 win over the Sabres. Larsson had gone six games without a point before setting up Kyle Brodziak in the dying seconds of the second period. Larsson has 16 points in 66 games with a minus-16 rating this season. He has delivered 202 hits (12th in the league) and 107 blocked shots, which lends him fantasy value in some deeper formats.
Larsson scored in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday. Not known for his scoring, Larsson's goal was just his third of the season. He also has 13 assists, but where he's really hurting owners, though, is his minus-15 rating. Larsson posted a plus-46 during the three seasons prior to 2018-19.
Larsson finished the first half with 13 points -- one goal and 12 assists -- but he posted a dreadful minus-12 rating. The Oilers certainly haven't had the year they envisioned, owning a 23-24-4 record and a minus-19 goal differential, which has contributed to Larsson's downfall in the rating category. He posted ratings of plus-15, plus-21 and plus-10 in the last three seasons, but he would need a drastic second-half turnaround to get back in the black. Larsson doesn't contribute on the power play, so his rating is generally one of the main categories he can assist with in terms of fantasy. Without that, Larsson does very little to make himself an asset.
Larsson (foot) recorded 22:44 of ice time and a minus-4 rating in Saturday's loss to the Lightning. Larsson was considered a game-time call for this outing, but he shook off his injury. That didn't help fantasy owners much as he dropped a dud. His main value doesn't come from points anyway since he now has just 11 in 36 games, but he can make up some ground with 109 hits and 62 blocked shots so far.
