  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Re-signs with Edmonton

    Benson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Oilers on Saturday, per Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic. The deal is worth $750,000 at the NHL level. Benson logged a goal and an assist in 29 games with Edmonton last season. The 24-year-old winger will likely compete for a bottom-six role with the Oilers in training camp.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Waived Wednesday

    Benson hit the waiver wire Wednesday. Benson's pending demotion could be an indication that Jesse Puljujarvi (lower body) is ready to come off injured reserve for Thursday's matchup with Buffalo. The 23-year-old winger has appeared in 29 games for the Oilers this year in which he has garnered just two points, so few fantasy players are likely to be impacted by him being moved to the minors.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Nets first NHL tally

    Benson scored a goal and went minus-2 in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Wild. This was Benson's 30th career game, and he finally got his first goal, though it'll be a bittersweet memory given the result. The 23-year-old winger hasn't done much from a bottom-six role this season with two points, 16 shots on net, 37 hits and a minus-5 rating in 23 outings. Even with his former coach from AHL Bakersfield, Jay Woodcroft, now behind the NHL bench, Benson has struggled to keep his place in the lineup.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Exits COVID-19 protocols

    Per Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network, Benson is on the ice for Wednesday's practice, indicating he's cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols. Benson skated on Edmonton's third line during Wednesday's on-ice session and should be an option for Thursday's matchup with the Panthers. The 23-year-old forward has picked up one helper through 17 games this season.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Benson was designated to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Sunday. Benson has averaged 10:59 of ice time and tallied one assist through his last six appearances. If his entrance into protocols results in missed games, the Oilers will likely fill the vacancy with a call-up due to long-term injuries sidelining Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) and Josh Archibald (chest).

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Posts helper in loss

    Benson logged an assist in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers. The helper was Benson's first point of the year, as he set up longtime minor-league teammate Ryan McLeod on the Oilers' lone tally. The 23-year-old Benson has added nine shots on net, 23 hits, six PIM and a minus-4 rating in 16 games this year. He's been a part-time player in the bottom six this year, often competing with Brendan Perlini and Kyle Turris for playing time.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Frequent healthy scratch

    Benson has been a healthy scratch for 11 of the Oilers' 18 games this season. Benson appears to be in competition of Brendan Perlini for one spot on the fourth line, but neither winger has done anything notable this year. The 23-year-old Benson has three shots on goal, 10 hits and four PIM in seven appearances. He tore up the AHL last year with 10 goals and 26 helpers in 36 contests, but without an opportunity to make an impact at the NHL level, he'll continue to be a non-factor in fantasy.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Re-ups with team

    Benson penned a one-year, two-way deal with Edmonton on Wednesday. Benson failed to get into a game for the Oilers last year, having made all seven of his NHL appearances back in 2019. In those contests, the 23-year-old winger registered five shots, one assist and three hits while averaging 10:23 of ice time. Benson figures to continue featuring primarily in the minors this upcoming season.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Back to bus league

    Benson was sent down to AHL Bakersfield on Thursday. Benson resided on the team's taxi squad in the early stages of the season, but he'll head to the minors hoping to earn another shot with the big club. The 22-year-old earned one assist in seven contests last season with the Oilers, so he's likely still a few years away from becoming a regular contributor at the NHL level.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Headed home

    Benson has been recalled from his loan with the GCK Lions of Switzerland's National League. Benson was highly productive during his overseas loan, racking up 19 points in 15 games. The 22-year-old winger will attend the Oilers' training camp, but he'll likely spend most of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors, so he won't be a viable fantasy option.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Joins Swiss club on loan

    Benson will begin the 2020-21 season on loan with NLA side GCK Lions. Benson played in seven games for the Oilers in which he notched one assist, five shots and three hits while averaging 10:23 of ice time. The 21-year-old winger figures to rejoin Edmonton for training camp and could be a candidate for a spot on the 23-man roster, especially if the organization decides to part ways with Riley Sheahan and/or Tyler Ennis. If he does make the NHL roster, Benson figures to log the bulk of his minutes in a bottom-six role.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Called up for camp

    Benson has been added to Edmonton's training camp roster. Benson appeared in 47 games for AHL Bakersfield this season, in which he notched nine goals and 27 assists. In his seven NHL contests, the winger has managed one point, five shots and three hits while averaging 10:23 of ice time. In addition to Benson, the club brought in forwards Cooper Marody and Ryan McLeod, defensemen William Lagesson and Evan Bouchard and goaltenders Stuart Skinner and Dylan Wells.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Dropped down a level

    Edmonton assigned Benson to AHL Bakersfield on Monday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports. Benson appeared in five games during his nine-day stay with the big club, tallying one assist while averaging 11:35 of ice time per contest. He'll return to a featured role with Bakersfield, where he's racked up nine goals and 36 points in 43 contests this campaign.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: First NHL point is assist

    Benson earned an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes. Benson had the lone helper on Josh Archibald's go-ahead tally at 15:01 of the second period. It was Benson's first point in four career games. The second-round pick from 2016 has racked up 36 points in 43 outings with AHL Bakersfield, but he's likely going to stay with the parent club while James Neal (ankle) is sidelined.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Earns promotion Wednesday

    Benson was brought up from AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday. With the club set to embark on a three-game road trip, the decision was made to designate James Neal (ankle) for injured reserve and use the available roster spot to recall Benson. In 43 games with the Condors this year, the 21-year-old has racked up nine goals and 27 helpers. Although Benson figures to serve as an emergency depth option, his scoring touch could earn him a look over Jujhar Khaira or Patrick Russell.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Shifts to minors

    The Oilers reassigned Benson to AHL Bakersfield on Sunday. The 21-year-old got his first taste at the NHL level this season, going pointless while skating in 7:22 of averaging ice time through two games. Benson will head back to the AHL, where he's been dominant in racking up 35 points in 42 games. Benson's demotion likely signals that James Neal (ankle) is nearing a return to the lineup.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: First taste of NHL

    Benson was recalled by the Oilers from AHL Bakersfield on Thursday. The 21-year-old earned his first career call up Thursday, as he's racked up 35 points in 42 AHL games this campaign. A 2016 second-round pick, Benson could enter the lineup as early as Friday against the Blues for his first career NHL game.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Assist machine in minors

    Benson has five assists in as many games with AHL Bakersfield this year. Benson has earned a reputation as a strong playmaker in the minors, with 51 assists among his 66 points for the Condors last season. He's continuing that style of play this year. The second-round pick from 2016 will likely stay in the minors throughout 2019-20, but he could challenge for a job with the parent club in the coming years.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Heading to bus league

    Benson was assigned to AHL Bakersfield on Friday. Benson appeared in two preseason games and managed just two shots on goal while failing to record a point. The second-round pick from 2016 had 15 goals and 66 points in 68 games with Bakersfield last season. If he can continue to perform at that level, the winger should see NHL action sooner rather than later.

  • Oilers' Tyler Benson: Excellent first pro season

    Benson racked up three assists in AHL Bakersfield's 7-2 victory over Colorado on Wednesday. Benson has been excellent in his first professional season. He currently ranks fourth amongst all AHL rookies in scoring with 34 points in 40 games, and his 29 assists are tied for fourth in the circuit, overall. A second-round pick (32nd overall) of the Oilers in 2016, Benson dealt with all sorts of injuries during the course of his junior career, but he finally seems to be healthy. Given the state of affairs in Edmonton these days, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Benson spends the later stages of the season in the NHL.
