  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Joins AHL Bakersfield

    Koekkoek cleared waivers and was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday.

    Koekkoek recorded an assist and logged 10:15 of ice time in a 3-2 victory over Vancouver on Jan. 25 and he has not played in an NHL contest since. The 27-year-old will rejoin the AHL for the first time since the 2018-19 season.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Placed on waivers

    Koekkoek landed on waivers Tuesday.

    Koekkoek has averaged 11:10 of ice time, blocked 18 shots, delivered 21 hits and distributed four assists over 19 games this season. The 27-year-old has not participated in the last three games. He recorded an assist in last Tuesday's 3-2 victory over Vancouver.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Provides helper Tuesday

    Koekkoek logged an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks.

    Koekkoek helped out on Ryan McLeod's third-period marker, which sparked the Oilers' comeback push. The assist was Koekkoek's first point in two games since clearing the COVID-19 protocols. The Ontario native can't be relied on for big scoring numbers from a third-pairing role. He's at four assists, 21 hits, 18 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 19 appearances overall.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Out of protocols, in lineup

    Koekkoek has cleared the COVID-19 protocols and will play Saturday versus the Flames, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Koekkoek only missed two games despite an extended stay in the protocols. The 27-year-old defenseman will play alongside Kris Russell on the third period with Tyson Barrie sidelined by multiple injuries Saturday.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Added to protocols list

    Koekkoek entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

    Koekkoek was one of five Oilers skaters that entered the league's virus protocols Saturday. He'll need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before rejoining his teammates.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Assists in consecutive games

    Koekkoek posted an assist in Friday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Devils.

    Koekkoek has collected helpers in consecutive games, but he only saw 8:09 of ice time Friday. The Oilers' decision to go with seven defensemen likely figured into that low figure. The 27-year-old will likely have an edge over William Lagesson for playing time going forward. Koekkoek is up to three helpers, 17 hits, 14 blocked shots, 12 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 14 appearances.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Slides helper

    Koekkoek collected an assist, three hits and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Blues.

    Koekkoek picked up just his second assist of the year and his first in two games since returning from a lower-body injury. The 27-year-old defenseman has added 16 hits, 14 blocked shots, 12 PIM and a plus-1 rating in 13 contests. Once Darnell Nurse returns from the COVID-19 protocols, Koekkoek would likely move into a third-pairing role.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Activated off IR

    Koekkoek (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Saturday's game versus Seattle.

    Koekkoek will likely return to a bottom-pairing role against the Kraken following his one-month absence. The 27-year-old defender has picked up one assist through 11 games this season.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Goes on IR

    The Oilers placed Koekkoek (lower body) on injured reserve Friday.

    The defenseman exited Thursday's game against Winnipeg and will be sidelined at least until the Nov. 27 showdown in Vegas. Koekkoek has tallied one assist and no goals while averaging 9:48 of ice time over 11 contests this season.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Out 3-4 weeks

    Koekkoek's lower-body injury will keep him out approximately 3-4 weeks.

    That timeline suggests Koekkoek will miss at least nine games, if not more. He was moved to injured reserve Friday, as well, but his absence shouldn't make much of a fantasy impact considering he has just one point in 11 games for the Western Conference's most prolific offense.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Injured Thursday

    Koekkoek (lower body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Jets, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Koekkoek was hurt in the second period and was ruled out during the intermission. Should the 27-year-old have to miss time, Kris Russell would likely enter the lineup on the third pairing.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Turns defense to offense

    Koekkoek picked up an assist and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    Late in the second period, Koekkoek stepped in front of a shot, and the ricochet off his body set up Jesse Puljujarvi for a breakaway tally. The 27-year-old Koekkoek earned his first point in eight games on the play. He's added 10 blocks, eight hits, three shots on net and four PIM while sharing a third-pairing spot with Kris Russell.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Signs two-year pact

    Koekkoek secured a two-year, $1.85 million deal with Edmonton on Thursday, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Koekkoek saw action in just 18 games for the Oilers last season in which he registered one goal on 17 shots, 31 blocks and 10 hits while averaging a meager 13:10 of ice time. The 27-year-old blueliner figures to remain a fringe lineup option for Edmonton and won't provide much in the way of fantasy value even when he does suit up.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Offers assist in loss

    Koekkoek notched an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets in Game 3.

    Koekkoek set up Leon Draisaitl for the opening tally Sunday. The assist was Koekkoek's first point in three playoff outings. The 27-year-old defenseman has added three blocked shots, four shots on net and a plus-1 rating in a third-pairing role. He missed most of the 2020-21 regular season due to a broken collarbone he suffered in late February, and he only mustered one goal in 18 games when he was healthy.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Activated from IR

    Koekkoek (collarbone) was activated from IR on Saturday.

    This move paves the way for Koekkoek to see his first game action since Feb. 20 in Saturday's regular-season finale against the Canucks. He's expected to be a healthy scratch once the postseason begins, but a strong effort in his return could put Koekkoek near the top of the list as far as Edmonton's blue-line options should injuries strike in the playoffs.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Set to play Saturday

    Koekkoek (collarbone) is slated to play in Saturday's regular-season finale against Vancouver, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports, indicating he'll be activated off injured reserve prior to puck drop.

    While Koekkoek will get into Saturday's regular-season contest, coach Dave Tippett doesn't expect to utilize the blueliner in the playoffs. The 27-year-old Ontario native last played Feb. 20 against Calgary, so a tune-up game in the event one of the Oilers' top-six blueliners gets hurt makes plenty of sense.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Could play Saturday

    Koekkoek (collarbone) has a chance to play in Saturday's regular-season finale versus the Canucks, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Koekkoek has been out since Feb. 23 with a fractured collarbone. While a return is possible, it's far from guaranteed. Ethan Bear would be most likely to exit the lineup to make room for Koekkoek, who could end up serving in a depth role during the postseason.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Over a week away

    Koekkoek (collarbone) hasn't been cleared to play and is over a week from returning, per coach Dave Tippett, Jason Gregor of TSN 1260 Radio reports.

    Koekkoek could still return just before the end of the regular season, but that's looking less and less likely. The blueliner has been on LTIR since suffering a fractured collarbone back on Feb. 20.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Ahead of schedule

    According to general manager Ken Holland, Koekkoek (collarbone) "is ahead of schedule and might be available for some games at the end of the season," Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

    Koekkoek is likely still around a month away from returning, but he could get a few regular-season games in prior to the playoffs. The 27-year-old blueliner has picked up one goal through 17 games this season.

  • Oilers' Slater Koekkoek: Lands on LTIR

    Koekkoek (collarbone) was placed on long-term injured reserve Monday, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    This move was expected after Koekkoek suffered a fractured collarbone during his first shift of Saturday's win over the Flames. Spector adds that it will be a surprise if Koekkoek returns during the regular season. The 27-year-old suited up for 17 games this year, posting a goal and 29 blocked shots.
