Top Evan Bouchard News

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Scores equalizer Thursday

    Bouchard scored a goal on four shots, levied three hits, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Predators.

    Bouchard struck at 14:48 of the second period, and his goal was the last one in regulation. The defenseman has tallied three times in the last three games, giving him nine goals for the season. The Ontario native is up to 22 points, 96 shots, 57 blocks, 38 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 39 contests overall. He's seeing time on the top power-play unit with Tyson Barrie (upper body) on injured reserve, making Bouchard an intriguing short-term option in fantasy.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Converts twice on power play

    Bouchard scored a pair of goals on three shots in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Flames.

    Bouchard erased the Flames' 2-0 lead with his second-period tallies in a span of 4:06. The two goals were essentially carbon copies -- he converted both on hard slap shots from the high slot. Bouchard has eight goals, 21 points, 88 shots on net, 53 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 37 contests. He'll likely be the Oilers' preferred option to quarterback the first power-play unit at least as long as Tyson Barrie (upper body) is out.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Returns to practice

    Bouchard cleared COVID-19 protocols and practiced Friday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    The defenseman had been sidelined by COVID-19 since last Saturday. Bouchard, who has six goals and 13 assists in 34 games this season, should be on Edmonton's first defense pairing Saturday versus Ottawa.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Enters virus protocols

    The Oilers placed Bouchard in COVID-19 protocols Saturday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

    The defenseman will miss at least two games while he recovers from the virus. Bouchard, who has six goals and 13 assists this season, should return to Edmonton's first defense pairing once healthy.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Tickles twine Wednesday

    Bouchard scored a goal on three shots and added four PIM in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Blues.

    Bouchard tied the game at 2-2 with a second-period tally, but the Oilers' offense was kept quiet after that. The 22-year-old blueliner has two goals and two helpers on a modest three-game point streak. Bouchard is up to six tallies, 19 points, 72 shots on net, 47 blocked shots, 28 hits, 14 PIM and a plus-7 rating in 30 contests. He'll likely be counted on to pick up some of the slack while Darnell Nurse is in the COVID-19 protocols.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Two points in win over Kraken

    Bouchard scored a goal on two shots, notched an assist and went plus-3 in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Kraken.

    Bouchard got the Oilers on the board in the first period as they bounced back from an early 2-0 deficit. He also set up Warren Foegele's second goal of the game in the third, which stood as the game-winner. Bouchard is up to five goals, 13 assists, 69 shots on net, 46 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 29 contests in his first full season.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Gathers assist in win

    Bouchard notched an assist, five shots on goal, four blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Bouchard helped out on Brendan Perlini's second-period tally. The assist ended a five-game point drought for Bouchard. There will be ups and downs in the 22-year-old's game during his first full NHL campaign. He's been fairly solid so far with 16 points, 67 shots, 46 blocks, 27 hits and a plus-5 rating through 28 outings.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Another multi-point game

    Bouchard scored a goal on two shots, dished an assist, blocked a pair of shots and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Kraken.

    Bouchard turned in another solid performance for an understaffed Oilers defense corps. He tied the game at 2-2 in the second period and saw another shot tipped in by Connor McDavid in the third, though the comeback push fell short. Bouchard is up to four goals, 11 assists, 52 shots, 36 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating through 22 contests. The return of Darnell Nurse (finger), which could be as soon as Sunday, isn't expected to diminish Bouchard's production -- in reality, it could help the 22-year-old if he works alongside Nurse on the top defensive pairing.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Collects two points Wednesday

    Bouchard scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

    Bouchard scored on a feed from Connor McDavid at 7:54 of the third period. The 22-year-old Bouchard also assisted on McDavid's empty-netter to earn his third multi-point effort of the year. With the Oilers' blue line ravaged by injures, Bouchard is one of the more experienced defensemen on the roster. He logged 21:45 of ice time Wednesday, and he's up to 13 points, 50 shots, 34 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating in 21 outings this year. He'll be a solid DFS option Friday against the Kraken.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Earns assist in win

    Bouchard notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Bouchard set up Jesse Puljujarvi's second-period tally, which stood as the game-winner. Despite injuries to the Oilers' defense corps, Bouchard has seen third-pairing minutes in recent games. The 22-year-old blueliner has 11 points, 47 shots on net, a plus-5 rating and 33 blocks in 20 contests, so the semi-limited usage is a little puzzling.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Provides pair of assists

    Bouchard recorded two assists, including one while shorthanded, and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    Bouchard snapped a four-game slump by earning the secondary helper on Connor McDavid's opening tally. The 22-year-old Bouchard also set Leon Draisaitl loose on a shorthanded breakaway in the third. With nine points in 17 games so far, Bouchard has taken a step forward. He logged his even-strength minutes with Duncan Keith on the top pairing and he also played on the second power-play unit, a role which should be exclusively his while Darnell Nurse (finger) is sidelined.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Nets first-period equalizer

    Bouchard scored a goal on four shots and added three hits in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Bruins.

    The Bruins got to enjoy their first-period lead for all of 44 seconds before Bouchard tied the game on his second goal of the year. The 22-year-old saw 24:26 of ice time Thursday -- that's impressive on its own, but also doubly so when Tyson Barrie saw just 12:41. Bouchard has eight points, 32 shots on net, 13 hits, 21 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating through 12 contests. He's not only holding his own, but he's evolving into a minute-munching blueliner alongside the ever-steady Darnell Nurse. That much ice time will keep Bouchard exposed to the Oilers' top talents, which should in turn give him a high-scoring ceiling this year.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Slides assist

    Bouchard managed an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    Bouchard helped out on Connor McDavid's third-period tally. It was encouraging to see Bouchard back alongside Darnell Nurse in Tuesday's contest after the former was bumped to the bottom pairing Friday against the Rangers. The 22-year-old Bouchard has seven points, 28 shots on net, 21 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating in 11 contests.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Helpers in consecutive outings

    Bouchard recorded an assist, three shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 6-5 overtime win over the Rangers.

    Despite a mid-game demotion to the third defense pairing, Bouchard was still able to make an impact. He had the secondary helper on Jesse Puljujarvi's goal in the third period. Bouchard is up to six points, 25 shots on net, 20 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating in 10 contests. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too discouraged, though his fantasy appeal takes a hit when he's not playing alongside Darnell Nurse.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Collects assist in win

    Bouchard posted an assist, two shots on goal, three hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Predators.

    Bouchard continues to do a little bit of everything since he joined Darnell Nurse on the Oilers' top pairing. Through nine contests this season, Bouchard has five points, matching his career high from 14 games last year. He's added 22 shots on net, 18 blocked shots, eight hits and a plus-4 rating. The 10th overall pick from 2018 appears set for a breakout season in his first full campaign.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Helps out on power play

    Bouchard registered a power-play assist and three blocked shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Canucks.

    Bouchard earned the secondary helper on Warren Foegele's goal in the first period. The 22-year-old Bouchard has gone from the roster fringe to a top-pairing role alongside Darnell Nurse in a matter of seven games. Bouchard has four points, 19 shots on net, 15 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating this season -- he'll be worth a look in deeper fantasy formats while he's logging big minutes.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Sends helper Thursday

    Bouchard produced an assist, four shots on goal and two PIM in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Bouchard is up to three points in four contests, and he's averaging 19:17 of ice time per game. The 22-year-old defenseman has a plus-3 rating and nine blocked shots, so he's contributing on both offense and defense. While he's still on the third pairing, it may not take much more for him to earn a more advanced role as the season progresses.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Productive in win

    Bouchard scored a goal on a team-high six shots, dished an assist and blocked seven shots in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Ducks.

    While it was just one game, Bouchard saw more ice time (19:36) than Tyson Barrie (18:23). Bouchard also drew some power-play time, assisting on Zack Kassian's game-tying goal before scoring the go-ahead tally himself at even strength. Consistency will be important for Bouchard, but it appears he's well on his way to becoming an everyday player for head coach Dave Tippett. He has nine shots on net and nine blocked shots through three games this year.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Bulges twine on power play

    Bouchard scored a power-play goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added a pair of hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Canucks.

    Bouchard's long-range goal at 19:13 of the second period gave the Oilers a 3-1 lead. The 21-year-old blueliner has played a limited role this season with just five points in 13 appearances. He's unlikely to see much playing time once the playoffs roll around, but head coach Dave Tippett will want the young defenseman ready to go in case he's needed due to injuries on the blue line.

  • Oilers' Evan Bouchard: Rises to active roster

    Bouchard was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.

    It's unclear if Bouchard will be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Canucks. If he plays, it'll likely either be in a seven-defensemen lineup or to replace Caleb Jones on the third pairing.
