Haas signed a one-year, $915,000 contract extension with the Oilers on Tuesday. Haas has been solid while skating in a bottom-six role for Edmonton this season, picking up five goals and 10 points while averaging 9:42 of ice time per contest through 58 appearances. The 28-year-old pivot will likely have a similar, if not identical role with the Oilers in 2020-21, so don't expect him to be a viable fantasy option next season.
Haas registered just two points in 14 games in February. Both points came in a Feb. 1 win over the Flames. Haas remains stuck on 10 points with 53 shots and 52 hits through 56 outings this year. He only carries fantasy value in the deepest of formats at best.
Haas has no points in his last six games. Haas has been dry since the start of January, with just three points in his last 15 appearances. The Swiss center is filling a second-line role with Connor McDavid's quad injury thinning the Oilers' depth down the middle. However, if Haas doesn't start chipping in more, Riley Sheahan or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins might be given a chance in that role instead.
Haas scored on a penalty shot and added an assist in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Flames. Haas helped out on Caleb Jones' second-period tally before earning the penalty shot on a Matthew Tkachuk hook. The Swiss center was a scratch for Wednesday's meeting between these teams, but he responded well Saturday. For the season, Haas has 10 points, 42 hits and 43 shots on net through 43 games.
Haas was a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Flames. Haas isn't particularly physical -- coach Dave Tippett wanted the heavy-hitting Jujhar Khaira in the lineup, which forced Haas to the press box. However, with Joakim Nygard suffering an upper-body injury Wednesday, Haas may soon be back in the lineup. The Swiss center has eight points, 40 hits and 40 shots on goal through 41 contests in a bottom-six role.
