  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Provides two more helpers

    Desharnais notched two assists and blocked two shots in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Ducks.

    Desharnais has three helpers this season, all of which have come in the last two games. He assisted on goals by Zach Hyman and James Hamblin in this contest. Desharnais is up to four points with 21 hits, 19 blocks, 23 PIM, 11 shots on net and a minus-3 rating over 18 appearances. The 27-year-old remains in a third-pairing role, so his fantasy value is low in most formats.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Scores goal in win

    Desharnais scored a goal in Sunday's 5-2 victory over Calgary.

    Desharnais scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's outdoor contest. The 27-year-old blueliner's lack of offensive output shouldn't come as a surprise considering he has registered a mere two shots over six outings this year. In 36 contests last season, the he managed just five assists, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on him for offense.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Posts two helpers

    Desharnais notched two assists in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Kings in Game 6.

    Desharnais had a hand in both of Klim Kostin's tallies in the contest. The pair of helpers snapped Desharnais' 17-game point drought. The young defenseman added two shots on net, 10 blocked shots, eight hits, four PIM and a minus-3 rating in six playoff contests. He appears to have a role regardless of whether the Oilers use six or seven blueliners, but the 26-year-old isn't one to produce much offense.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    Desharnais (illness) was assigned to AHL Bakersfield on Friday.

    Desharnais missed Wednesday's game versus Detroit due to an illness, but his demotion to the minors suggests he's no longer under the weather. The 26-year-old defender has collected four helpers through 12 top-level appearances this season. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back with the big club in the near future.

    Desharnais has been the Oilers' seventh defenseman in the lineup lately, but he'll have to miss one game.

Desharnais will try to return for Friday's game versus the Rangers.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Chips in with assist

    Desharnais posted an assist, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

    Desharnais snapped a three-game point drought when he had a shot tipped in by Warren Foegele in the second period. With four helpers through nine contests, Desharnais has made himself a fixture in the Oilers' seven-defensemen lineups. The 26-year-old has added five shots on net, nine hits, eight blocked shots, 10 PIM and a plus-7 rating. Given his still-limited ice time and lack of production outside of assists, he's best left on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Gets another helper Thursday

    Desharnais has an assist in three of his five NHL games since making his debut Jan. 11. The 26-year-old blueliner has allowed the Oilers to roll with seven defensemen comfortably, which gives their top forwards more ice time.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Mixed results in win

    Desharnais recorded an assist, two hits and four PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Desharnais has picked up a pair of assists through his first four NHL contests. While he's showing some quality on offense, he's also taken eight PIM -- that won't keep him in the good graces of the coaching staff for long if he can't cut down in that area. The blueliner has added six hits, four blocked shots and a plus-3 rating while finding a spot in the lineup when the Oilers opt to play seven defensemen.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Collects first NHL assist

    Desharnais logged an assist in Friday's 7-1 win over the Sharks.

    Desharnais stuck in the lineup for a second straight game with Kailer Yamamoto (undisclosed) missing Friday's contest. In the first period, Desharnais logged the secondary helper on Klim Kostin's goal, giving the former his first NHL point. The 26-year-old defenseman has added three hits, two blocked shots, two PIM, one shot on net and a plus-1 rating through two appearances. He's in the mix for a third-pairing role going forward, though if the Oilers continue to use seven defensemen, it would give him an easier path to playing time.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Healthy with AHL Bakersfield

    Desharnais (wrist) was activated from injured reserve and sent down to AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Desharnais was hurt in training camp and landed on the non-roster list to begin the season. The 26-year-old blueliner will get up to speed with the Condors, though the Oilers' tight salary cap situation makes it unlikely for him to see much time at the NHL level.
