Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Scores in road defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Senators.

The goal was only Ekman-Larsson's second with the man advantage this season. Finishing this loss with a minus-1 rating, Ekman-Larsson now has failed to produce a plus rating in seven straight games, Thursday's contest being just his third game back since missing four games due to injury. Even in a down year, the Coyotes' defenseman carries undeniable fantasy value in all formats.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: In after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, Ekman-Larsson (lower body) will suit up in Monday's game against Montreal.

The team had previously reported that their star defenseman was expected to miss the contest, but he'll draw into the lineup in place of Aaron Ness. It will be the first game back for Ekman-Larsson, as he's missed the past four contests with the lower-body issue.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) won't suit up in Monday's contest against Montreal.

It will be the fifth straight game missed for the 28-year-old, and in his stead, Aaron Ness will draw into the lineup. Expect the team to update Ekman-Larsson's status ahead of a quick turnaround for Tuesday's game in Toronto.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Status uncertain for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) is considered a game-time decision for Monday's road game versus Montreal, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Head coach Rick Tocchet relayed that Ekman-Larsson had a "good morning skate" Saturday, so he's certainly headed in the right direction. If he's deemed good to go, he'll immediately return to the top pairing as well as the first power play. The veteran defenseman has accrued 22 points, 111 shots and 104 hits over 53 games this year.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) won't play in Saturday's matchup versus the Bruins, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Although coach Rick Tocchet said Ekman-Larsson had a "good morning skate," the 28-year-old blueliner will miss his fourth straight outing. Jakob Chychrun is expected to work on the top pairing in his place. Considering Ekman-Larsson has made good progress in recovery, he'll have a solid chance at suiting up Monday versus Montreal.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Expected to travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) is set to join the club for its upcoming four-game road trip, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Whether Ekman-Larsson gets into Saturday's clash with Boston remains to be seen, but the fact that he will make the trip is a step in the right direction. Prior to getting hurt, the Swede had notched five points in his previous nine contests, including three with the man advantage.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) will miss Thursday's matchup with Carolina, Alan Robinson of NHL.com reports.

It will be the third straight game on the shelf for Ekman-Larsson due to his lower-body issue. With Jason Demers (lower body) designated for injured reserve, the Coyotes blue line will need Alex Goligoski and Jordan Oesterle to take on bigger minutes. With just 22 points in 53 games this year, Ekman-Larsson will be hard pressed to register a third consecutive 40-plus point campaign.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) will sit out his second straight game Tuesday versus the Oilers, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Ekman-Larsson's unavailability leaves the Coyotes without some major firepower on the back end. Although he's slowed down a bit in the scoring department this season, the 28-year-old blueliner still owns 22 points (six goals, 16 assists), leaving him right in the thick of the viable fantasy options at the position. His next opportunity to return to action arrives Thursday versus the Hurricanes.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Will not play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) is not on the ice for warmups, indicating he will miss Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Richard Morin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Ekman-Larsson was initially a game-time call for Saturday's contest, but it appears he'll be forced to miss his first game of the season. The recently recalled Kyle Capobianco will slot into a third-pairing role. Ekman-Larsson will attempt to be ready to go for Tuesday's matchup with the Oilers.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Game-time call Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) is a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup versus the Blackhawks, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Ekman-Larsson was injured by a knee-on-knee hit from Dustin Brown during Thursday's loss to the Kings, and now his status is uncertain Saturday. The veteran blueliner hasn't missed a game yet this year, and he's accrued 22 points through 53 contests. Jason Demers (undisclosed) is also a game-time call, so Jordan Oesterle and Kyle Capobianco could both enter the lineup in their place.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Exits contest Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson (lower body) won't return to Thursday's game against the Kings.

Ekman-Larsson suffered the injury on a knee-on-knee hit with Kings forward Dustin Brown, and he exited the game after skating in just 12:02 of ice time. Expect the team to provide another update on the stud defenseman's health ahead of Saturday's game against the Blackhawks. In the meantime, look for Derek Stepan to see a bump to the power play, with the team rolling with five defensemen for the remainder of Thursday's contest.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Snaps four-game slump with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson picked up an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.

Ekman-Larsson has been spotty on offense, with only four points in his last 10 games. The Swede is at 21 points, 108 shots, 96 hits, 50 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 50 contests this season. He'll need to up the pace a little bit to get back above a 40-point pace.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Gets going on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson posted a goal and added two power-play assists with a plus-2 rating, four shots on goal and two hits in a 5-2 victory over the Panthers on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old had two goals in the first 35 games of the season, but he has three in the last 10 games, giving owners hope he can have a strong second half. The power play has been a sore spot for him this season, as he has zero goals and five assists on the man advantage after Tuesday. Ekman-Larsson had five goals and 14 assists on the power play in 2018-19. In return for the lack of scoring, he has his first positive plus/minus since the 2013 season. He has five goals and 20 points with a plus-5 rating and 99 shots this season.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Contributes assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson posted an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

Ekman-Larsson assisted on Michael Grabner's lone tally for the Coyotes in the first period. The Swedish blueliner has two goals and four assists over his last five games to raise his season line to 17 points through 40 appearances. The 28-year-old has added 72 hits, 86 shots on goal and 18 PIM.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Collects three assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson had three assists and two shots with a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 5-2 win over Detroit.

Ekman-Larsson assisted on both of Clayton Keller's goal and added a third helper on Christian Dvorak's third-period tally. Ekman-Larsson has points in each of his last three games, totaling two goals and five points in that time. He hadn't been producing offensively at his customary levels, but hopefully this hot stretch will get him back on track.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Goals in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson scored a goal on five shots, took four PIM and dished three hits in Thursday's 8-5 loss to the Wild.

After the teams combined for five goals in the second period, Ekman-Larsson got the third off to a similarly frenetic start with his tally. The 28-year-old has scored in consecutive outings, which puts him at 13 points, 79 shots on goal and 68 hits in 37 appearances.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Nets late game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson scored a goal on two shots and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.

Ekman-Larsson's third goal of the year put the Coyotes ahead late in the third period, and it would stand as the winner. The defenseman added two hits and three blocked shots. OEL has struggled this year with 12 points in 36 appearances. The Swede has topped 40 points in five of the last six campaigns, but he'll need to pick up the pace to do so this year. He's added 74 shots on goal, 65 hits and 42 blocks.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Offers helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson picked up an assist in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota.

The Coyotes' top-pairing defender is up to nine points in 20 games this season, but over the last nine contests, Ekman-Larsson has only two assists. Next up are the Flames this Saturday, a team that held Ekman-Larsson off the scoresheet in the two teams' only meeting in 2019-20.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Two-point effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

The 28-year-old set up Nick Schmaltz late in the first period for Arizona's first goal, then tied the score at 3-3 himself midway through the second. OEL has found a groove, scoring two goals and six points in the last seven games and he looks to put together his third straight 40-point campaign and the sixth of his career.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: More assists, but still no goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ekman-Larsson finished with two assists, one coming on Christian Dvorak's power-play goal, in a 4-2 win over the Jets on Tuesday.

The Swedish blueliner finally opened his power-play account in the win Tuesday and now has three helpers in five games to begin 2019-20. Ekman-Larsson continues to be a top-end talent, both in reality and fantasy realms, who has collected at least 39 points in each of the last six seasons.
