Blue Jackets' Lauri Korpikoski: Traded to Columbus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski was traded from the Stars to the Blue Jackets on Wednesday in exchange for defenseman Dillon Heatherington.

Korpikoski mainly played a bottom-six role in Dallas, and he'll likely slot similarly into the Jackets' high-powered offense. The 30-year-old forward netted just one goal in February, but he managed 19 shots in 11 games for the month, so the luck hasn't gone his way.

Stars' Lauri Korpikoski: Still struggling to produce
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski finished Tuesday's win over Pittsburgh with three shots and a minus-1 rating.

Korpikoski has had some decent performances, but in addition to limited ice time, he's not getting many bounces. He has just one point in his last 11 games, but at least he's been putting the puck on net recently -- 13 shots in the last four contests.

Stars' Lauri Korpikoski: Warming up despite limited ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski picked up two assists and went plus-2 over 11:36 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-6 road victory against the Rangers.

The Finnish winger's turned out six points and a plus-6 rating over his last seven games despite only clearing 14 minutes once in that span. That's not to say that most fantasy owners should be all that interested by what Korpikoski is doing, but it is worth noting that the one-time Ranger is seeing a bit of an age-30 renaissance. With 15 points, 79 shots and a plus-7 rating through 45 games, he's roundly outperforming his production in all three categories from last season. In fact, Korpikoski hasn't finished with a positive rating since 2011-12.

Stars' Lauri Korpikoski: Produces rare point Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski got on the scoresheet with an assist Thursday in a 5-2 win over Nashville.

It was the first point in seven games for the first-year Star, who actually averages a decent amount of ice time (14:02) but just doesn't get involved often offensively. He put up a career-high 40 points back in 2010-11 with the Coyotes, but his current pace (nine in 28 games) suggests he'll land somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-30 by season's end.

Stars' Lauri Korpikoski: Grabs goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski scored his second goal of the season in a 4-2 win over the Flames on Thursday.

The tally brings the depth forward up to four points and 24 shots on goal on the season, which is right around the pace of his 22-point campaign with the Oilers last year. He doesn't do much by way of other peripheral stats to offset his lack of production for fantasy purposes, so he can probably be safely avoided in the vast majority of formats.

Stars' Lauri Korpikoski: Signs one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Dallas on Monday.

Korpikoski spent training camp with the Flames, but was unable to secure a long-term deal in Calgary. With injuries to Mattias Janmark (knee) and Cody Eakin (knee), the Stars were in need of an experienced forward. In four preseason contests, the 30-year-old failed to get on the scoresheet while averaging 15:15 in ice time per night, including minutes on both the power play and the penalty kill. The winger is unlikely to rack up a lot of offensive production, which limits his fantasy value.

Lauri Korpikoski: Released from PTO on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski was released from his professional tryout with the Flames on Sunday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.

The 30-year-old forward has played at least 64 games in each of the last three seasons, so he's proven that he can stick around in the NHL. If he ends up on another team, he could provide some depth on the wing.

Flames' Lauri Korpikoski: Inks PTO with Calgary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski signed a professional tryout agreement with the Flames on Friday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet reports.

The former No. 19 overall pick in the 2004 draft played with Edmonton during the 2015-16 campaign, totaling 22 points over 71 games. Korpikoski stands out as a top-notch skater with a quick release that helped him tally 40 and 37 points, respectively, with the Coyotes in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 campaigns. Now at 30 years old, he should still have plenty left in the tank but given his diminished production over his last four seasons, he projects as a third or fourth liner if he gets signed to the Flames longterm.

Lauri Korpikoski: Waived for purpose of buyout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers placed Korpikoski on unconditional waivers Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. He will be subjected to a contract buyout.

Korpikoski is a modest offensive producer, though he's a huge liability on the defensive end. Case in point, the 29-year-old has logged a minus-54 rating in 540 career games split between the Rangers, Coyotes, and Oilers, respectively. Buying out Korpikoski's contract would save Edmonton $2 million in 2016-17.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Had 10 goals this season.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski had 10 goals and 12 assists for Edmonton this season.

Korpikoski was also a minus-17, which would seem to indicate that he isn't the most defensively responsible of forwards. He will likely remain a bottom-six forward with Edmonton next season.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Continues recent semi-hot streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski tallied a goal on four shots, a hit and a plus-1 rating in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Wild.

Korpikoski continues to be on a bit of a hot streak, as he's now recorded three goals in his last five games. That brings the 29-year-old up to nine goals on the season, which ties his highest total since the 2013-14 campaign. While it wouldn't be wise to expect any sort of goal scoring outbursts here, Korpikoski brings a small amount of value for those in the deepest of leagues.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Buries game winner Sunday against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski scored the game-winning goal Sunday against the Jets.

He may be skating on the third line, but Korpikoski has scored twice in his last three games and has helped Edmonton pick up victories in four of their last five outings. The 29-year-old only has 17 points (eight goals) in 57 games, but if the Oilers keep rolling, the former 19-goal-scorer with Arizona could be worth adding in some very deep leagues.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Gathers two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski notched two helpers -- one on the power play -- Thursday in a 7-2 mauling of the Senators.

Generally better known for his penalty killing, Korpikoski only saw 20 seconds of power-play time toward the end of this game, but still picked up the secondary assist on Brandon Davidson's goal. Don't expect a whole lot more of this from Korpikoski moving forward; even with the return of Connor McDavid energizing the Edmonton offense, the Finnish winger won't see any meaningful spike in production.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Makes return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski (foot) made his return to the lineup after a three-game layoff Saturday against Nashville.

Korpikoski has been a solid producer in the Oilers' bottom-six forward group this season, with six goals and six assists through 39 games. The vet should see himself in the lineup night in and night out as long as he stays healthy.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Likely game-time call Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Oilers coach Todd McLellan, Korpikoski (foot) is likely to participate in pregame warmups and is shaping up to be a game-time decision for Saturday's home tilt against the Predators.

Korpikoski has missed the past three games with his foot ailment. Even when the 29-year-old's been on the ice, the Oilers have kept his minutes somewhat limited. He's averaging 14:28 of ice time this campaign and this is the third straight year of diminishing ice time for Korpikoski, starting in the 2011-12 campaign when he averaged 17:08 with the Coyotes. Fantasy owners in shallow leagues probably don't find much value in a forward with just 12 points and a minus-7 rating through 38 contests.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Not expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski (foot) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Stars.

Koprikoski has missed each of the last two contests because of a foot injury, and there's no indication he will return Thursday. Assuming that's the case, the winger's next chance to play now comes Saturday against the Predators.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski (foot) will miss the game Tuesday versus the Lightning.

Korpikoski took a shot off the foot Saturday and now has soreness that will keep him from playing. At this time it expected that he will return Thursday in Dallas.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Expected to sit Monday with foot issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski is expected to sit out Monday's game against the Panthers due to a foot injury, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports

Korpikoski wasn't on the ice for morning skate Monday, all but assuring he will miss the contest. Luke Gazdic is expected to draw into the lineup in his place, making the winger's next chance to play Tuesday assuming he misses as expected.

Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Powers Oilers with hat-trick performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski scored a hat trick and fired six shots on goal in Friday's win over the Rangers.

A dominant evening from the third-liner, who helped the Oilers to their fifth straight victory. Korpikoski now has six goals and eight points in 22 games on the season. Offensive nights like this are rare from him, especially considering he usually doesn't shoot much. Korpikoski's already matched his goal total from last season, though, so if he sticks on the second power-play unit and continues to shoot more, he could produce some more goals in a bottom-six role.

November 18, 2015 02:29 PM
Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Will return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Korpikoski (head) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Blackhawks.

Korpikoski has been sidelined since Oct. 27 with the head injury, but it appears he's finally past the issue. The Oilers will need to make a roster move to accommodate his return, but that will likely come at some point Wednesday. Korpikoski will likely slot in on either the third or fourth line.
