Top Oliver Ekman-Larsson News

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Snaps six-game point drought

    Ekman-Larsson logged an assist, two hits, a pair of blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

    Ekman-Larsson helped out on Vasili Podkolzin's lone tally in the second period. The 30-year-old Ekman-Larsson ended a six-game point drought, but he has just three points in 16 games since the start of November. The Swede is at five points, 72 shots on net, 36 hits, 18 blocked shots and 28 PIM through 25 appearances. While he's playing in a top-four role, the lacking point production has likely taken the defenseman off the fantasy radar.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Opens scoring on power play

    Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal on four shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

    Ekman-Larsson opened the scoring at 13:51 of the first period on a feed from Elias Pettersson. The goal snapped a five-game point drought for Ekman-Larsson, but he's gotten on the scoresheet just twice in his last 16 appearances. The Swede has four points, 53 shots on net, 26 hits, 15 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 18 contests, though the lack of offense has likely sent fantasy managers looking for blue-line help elsewhere.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Ends drought with helper

    Ekman-Larsson produced an assist, four shots on goal, four PIM and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Stars.

    Ekman-Larsson went nine games without a point before earning the secondary helper on Bo Horvat's second-period tally Sunday. Through 12 games, Ekman-Larsson has just three points despite pumping 42 shots on net. The Swede has added 20 hits, eight blocked shots, 14 PIM and a plus-3 rating in a top-four role, but he'll need to score with more consistency to maintain fantasy value in standard formats.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Good to go Tuesday

    Ekman-Larsson (illness) will play Tuesday versus the Rangers, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Ekman-Larsson missed practice Monday with an illness, but he was never in much risk of missing playing time. The Swede will play his usual role on the top pairing and second power-play unit, making him a solid blueliner in fantasy.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Misses practice Monday

    Ekman-Larsson was absent from Monday's practice session due to illness, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Coach Travis Green told reporters Ekman-Larsson was "fine", but fantasy players will certainly want to monitor the situation. In nine games this season, the Swedish blueliner has registered one goal, one assist and 34 shots. Assuming Ekman-Larsson is good to go versus the Rangers on Tuesday, he should continue to offer value given his role with the man advantage.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Records assist in shootout win

    Ekman-Larsson posted an assist, three hits, three blocked shots and two PIM in Friday's 5-4 shootout win over the Flyers.

    Ekman-Larsson had the secondary assist on Vasili Podkolzin's first NHL tally in the second period. Through two games, Ekman-Larsson has provided well-rounded production with two points, five shots on net, four PIM, six hits and three blocks. The Swede could get back over the 40-point mark for the first time in three years now that he's away from the offense-draining Coyotes.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Nets power-play goal

    Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal on four shots in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Oilers. He added three hits and two PIM.

    The Canucks' first goal had a former Coyotes flavor, as Ekman-Larsson scored it and Conor Garland produced the secondary assist. OEL struggled a bit with 24 points, 72 hits and 83 shots on goal in 46 contests last season. He'll bring solid physicality and a veteran presence to a still-young Canucks blue line. The Swede is expected to see a fair amount of power-play time, which gives him a safe floor for fantasy managers in need of offense from the blue line.

  • Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Flipped in five-player trade

    Ekman-Larsson was acquired by Vancouver from Arizona in a blockbuster deal Friday that saw Conor Garland join him with the Canucks in exchange for Jay Beagle, Antoine Roussel, Loui Eriksson, the 2021 ninth overall pick, a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 seventh-round pick, TSN.ca reports.

    Considering Ekman-Larsson has six years remaining on his contract at an AAV of $8.25 million and hasn't reached the 40-point threshold in two consecutive seasons, his deal has become somewhat of an albatross that the new management group in Arizona wanted to ship out. Still, the veteran defenseman could return to being a solid producer from the blue line, though he may have to settle for a spot on the No. 2 power play in favor of Quinn Hughes lining up with the first unit, which won't improve his fantasy value.

    Ekman-Larsson produced a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Blues.

    Ekman-Larsson set up Clayton Keller's tally at 10:34 of the second period. Through nine games in April, Ekman-Larsson has just three assists -- all with the man advantage. OEL is up to 20 points, 61 shots on net, 56 hits and 18 PIM in 35 outings, but he also carries a minus-16 rating.

The 29-year-old defenseman has 18 points (11 on the power play), 53 shots on net, 46 hits and a minus-10 rating through 29 contests.

    Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal on his only shot and had two PIM in a 9-3 loss to Colorado on Wednesday.

It was just the second goal of the season for the 29-year-old, though both have come in the last five games. He also has points in five of his last six and will take a three-game point streak into Friday's game against Anaheim.
