  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Rare two-point effort

    Russell scored an empty-net goal, added an assist, levied four hits and blocked five shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche. Russell's last multi-point effort was a two-assist game versus the Flames on March 6, 2021. The veteran defenseman is rarely a big contributor on offense, but he played a noticeable part in this contest, and he absorbed extra ice time after Darnell Nurse (lower body) left the game. Russell is at nine points, 31 shots on net, 64 blocked shots, 29 hits and a plus-9 rating through 28 outings, matching his point total from each of the last two seasons.

The 34-year-old defenseman isn't known for his offense -- he's at seven points, 30 shots on net, 59 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 27 outings this season.

  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Clear from virus protocols

    Russell has cleared the COVID-19 protocols but is unlikely to play Tuesday versus the Sharks, Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network reports. Russell went into the virus protocols last Monday, but he's now healthy again. The 34-year-old should resume a part-time role on the blue line, where he's unlikely to see more than third-pairing usage.

  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Russell has entered the league's COVID-19 protocols and will not play Monday against the Coyotes. With just eight points, 20 hits and 55 blocked shots this season, there shouldn't be too many fantasy managers that miss Russell while he's unavailable. Nonetheless, look for further info on the veteran blueliner ahead of Wednesday's game against the Kings.

  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Dealing with undisclosed injury

    Russell suffered an undisclosed injury that will sideline him versus Arizona on Monday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports. Russell has already missed the previous two contests and is far from a lock for the lineup even when cleared to play. Considering the 34-year-old defenseman hasn't recorded a goal since 2018-19, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much in the way of offensive production out of him moving forward.

  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Shifted to injured reserve

    Russell was placed on injured reserve Monday with an undisclosed injury.

    Russell notched an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks. Russell was playing in his third game back from an upper-body injury. The 34-year-old blueliner set up Ryan McLeod to put the Oilers on the board in the third period. Russell has just three assists with 44 blocked shots, 18 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 17 contests. He'll likely remain in a third-pairing role throughout the season.

  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Set for extended absence

    Russell will miss at least a week with an upper-body injury, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports. Russell's absence will test Edmonton's depth on the back end, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up two helpers through 14 contests this year. The veteran blueliner is undergoing further testing Friday, so a more definite timetable for his return could be established in the coming days.

  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Exits after hit Thursday

    Russell (upper body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Bruins, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports. Russell was hit by Erik Haula in the second period, and that was enough to knock the former from the contest. Russell fired three shots on net and blocked two shots in 7:26 of ice time prior to his exit. He'll likely be day-to-day ahead of Saturday's showdown with the Hurricanes.

  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Chips in with helper Wednesday

    Russell recorded an assist, four blocked shots, two hits and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Penguins. The all-time blocked shot leader did plenty of that in his 26:53 of ice time Wednesday -- he's had at least four blocks in four of his 10 outings. Russell also produced the secondary helper on Kailer Yamamoto's game-winning tally. This was Russell's second point of the year to go with 31 blocks, a plus-8 rating and 10 hits. He'll continue to see a significant role as the OIlers weather an unfortunate run of injuries to their defense.
