  • Oilers' Valentin Zykov: Activated Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zykov (visa) was activated by the Oilers on Thursday. Zykov has been dealing with some visa issues that have prevented him from playing for his new club since being claimed by Edmonton in late November. His activation was among a flurry of moves made by the Oilers on Thursday and likely puts Zykov in position to make his team debut Friday against the Wild.

  • Zykov (visa) has been cleared to play in Canada, which means he's likely to play against the visiting Wild on Friday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports. However, the winger is still technically removed from the official 23-man roster, per the NHL's official media site. The Oilers won't be discrete when it comes time to activate Zykov since they'll have to send a player to waivers or AHL Bakersfield in a corresponding move. The Russian has missed three games since being claimed off waivers from the Hurricanes, and there's a lot of anticipation in knowing how he'll perform after the 2013 second-round pick -- originally to Los Angeles -- produced a mere 11 points over 25 games with the 'Canes.

  • Zykov won't travel with the Oilers as he works out immigration issues. Zykov was claimed by the Oilers on Friday and wasn't able to play Saturday as a result of the immigration delay. Zykov won't count against the Oilers' 23-man roster, and he'll look to get into the lineup when the Oilers return home Friday against the Wild.

  • Zykov will not make his Oilers debut Saturday against the Golden Knights, Tom Gazzola of TSN.ca reports. Apparently, there was a delay with Zykov's equipment arriving in Edmonton after the Hurricanes lost out on the 2013 second-rounder via waivers Friday. But rest assured, the Russian is healthy and not dealing with any type of visa issue, with Monday's road game against the Stars presenting his next chance to debut with the Oilers.

  • Hurricanes' Valentin Zykov: Claimed by Edmonton
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Oilers claimed Zykov off waivers Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Zykov was never able to establish a consistent role with the Hurricanes, totaling four goals and 11 points in 25 appearances over the past three campaigns, but he displayed his potential while playing for Carolina's AHL affiliate last season, racking up 33 goals and 54 points in 63 contests. The Oilers may want to see if the 2013 second-round pick can develop chemistry with Connor McDavid while skating on their top line, so he's definitely worth a look in most fantasy formats.
