Oilers' Adam Larsson: Rare two-pointer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson compiled two assists to go along with another pair of blocked shots and six hits in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Kings.

Three Oilers defensemen -- including Darnell Nurse and Oscar Klefbom -- combined for seven points in the high-scoring affair. For Larsson, it was his first multi-point game of the 2018-19 campaign.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Assists on game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson recorded a helper and five shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.

Larsson had gone six games without a point before setting up Kyle Brodziak in the dying seconds of the second period. Larsson has 16 points in 66 games with a minus-16 rating this season. He has delivered 202 hits (12th in the league) and 107 blocked shots, which lends him fantasy value in some deeper formats.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Registers rare goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson scored in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday.

Not known for his scoring, Larsson's goal was just his third of the season. He also has 13 assists, but where he's really hurting owners, though, is his minus-15 rating. Larsson posted a plus-46 during the three seasons prior to 2018-19.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Mediocre first half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson finished the first half with 13 points -- one goal and 12 assists -- but he posted a dreadful minus-12 rating.

The Oilers certainly haven't had the year they envisioned, owning a 23-24-4 record and a minus-19 goal differential, which has contributed to Larsson's downfall in the rating category. He posted ratings of plus-15, plus-21 and plus-10 in the last three seasons, but he would need a drastic second-half turnaround to get back in the black. Larsson doesn't contribute on the power play, so his rating is generally one of the main categories he can assist with in terms of fantasy. Without that, Larsson does very little to make himself an asset.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Struggles defensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson (foot) recorded 22:44 of ice time and a minus-4 rating in Saturday's loss to the Lightning.

Larsson was considered a game-time call for this outing, but he shook off his injury. That didn't help fantasy owners much as he dropped a dud. His main value doesn't come from points anyway since he now has just 11 in 36 games, but he can make up some ground with 109 hits and 62 blocked shots so far.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Saturday's status uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson suffered an apparent foot injury in Thursday's practice, but he's hoping to be OK for Saturday's home clash with the Lightning, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

Specifically, Larsson "stopped a shot on his foot" in the latest session. The rugged defenseman hasn't missed a game all season and there's been nothing to suggest that his availability for the next contest is in serious doubt, but nonetheless, this is a situation worth monitoring.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Reaches double-digit assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson provided an assist during Sunday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.

Larsson had a secondary assist on the opening goal of the game, breaking the scoreless deadlock in the second period. It was the 10th assist of the year for the big defender, marking the first time since 2016 that Larsson has reached double-digit assists.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Tallies assist in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson recorded an assist and fired one shot on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Sharks.

Larsson isn't necessarily known for his offensive contributions, but he's been solid in the month of November, picking up five helpers in nine contests. The 26-year-old blueliner's next opportunity to mark the scoresheet will come Friday against Anaheim.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Garners helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson picked up an assist in Monday's 4-2 road loss to the Capitals.

Larsson has yet to score this season, but he's accumulated 38 hits and 24 blocked shots to complement five helpers over 14 games. The Oilers always heavily feature the top-pairing defenseman on the penalty kill -- he's averaging 2:04 in that spot -- but Larsson's kept away from power-play action and that's a shame since he'd otherwise have a chance to play with all-world pivot Connor McDavid in that key special teams situation.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Fit to play in Sweden
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson (back) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Devils, which will take place in Sweden as part of the NHL's Global Series, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Larsson will be the right-defenseman complement to Oscar Klefbom as both teams open their respective 2018-19 campaigns. For Larsson, the game against his former team will be held in his home country, albeit 12 and half hours away in terms of driving distance. Larsson added four goals, nine assists and a plus-13 rating over 63 games with the Oilers in 2017-18. He also generated 239 hits and 140 blocked shots to qualify as a strong two-way player who averaged close to 22 minutes per contest.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson (back) will not dress for Wednesday's preseason clash with Kolner Haie (DEL).

Larsson is focusing on being ready for Saturday's' Opening Night clash with the Devils in Sweden, rather than taking part in the preseason exhibition versus the DEL club. If Larsson is sidelined for the opener, it could force the club to sign Jason Garrison to a regular contract.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Dealing with minor back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson's back tightened up during Saturday's game with the Flames and he was pulled for precautionary reasons, Tom Gazzola of TSN reports.

It's expected that Larsson will be fine to travel with the Oilers to Europe, but you never know with backs. Right now, there is little reason for concern, and if he lands across the pond without it flaring up on him he should be good to go.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Scores 10 points or more for fourth straight season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson played in 63 games during the 2017-18 campaign, scoring four goals and pitching in nine assists while averaging 21:56 of ice time.

During his second season in Edmonton, Larsson saw his ice time grow from 20:09 to 21:56, but it didn't correspond with much of an increase in his points-per-game pace -- in fact it actually dropped from .24 to .21 -- and he still doesn't have a presence on the power play. The Swede still boasts a solid 50.6 Corsi and went plus-10 on the season in showcasing his on-ice value, but we're still waiting to see the offensive flashes that saw him put up 24 points in 64 games as a 22-year-old in 2014-15. Larsson will return to Edmonton for the 2018-19 season, and figures to hold down a spot on the first pairing once again.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Earns prestigious honor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson has been nominated by Edmonton for the Masterton Trophy, the Edmonton Journal reports.

The trophy is awarded annually to the player who displays sportsmanship, perseverance and dedication to the game -- Larsson has shown all of those qualities amidst the recent passing of his father. "You don't want something like this to happen but when it does, hopefully it makes you a better, stronger person moving forward," Larsson said. "It's sad something like this has to happen to realize it." The 25-year-old defenseman only has 12 points in 58 games in 2017-18, but he remains an integral piece in the Oilers' defensive unit (21:58 average ice time). Given the ample opportunities sharing first-team minutes with Connor McDavid, Larsson is worth the gamble in daily formats and in deep leagues for now.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Scores rare goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson scored a goal in Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Panthers.

The goal was Larsson's third of the season and his first since Nov. 26. He also doled out punishment in the contest, finishing with five hits to complement two blocked shots. The Swedish blueliner is a leader among the young defensive corps in Oil Country, yet he can only be relied upon in deep leagues that cater to his bruising style for now.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson collected an assist in Saturday's 4-1 victory over the Wild.

It has been a rough month for the Swedish defenseman -- he missed three games to attend his father's funeral and the assist was his first point since Feb. 24. Larsson only has nine points in 49 games in 2017-18, yet is worth consideration for those desperate in deep leagues for a blueliner given his first-line minutes (21:36 on average).

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson (personal) won't be in the lineup Monday, but will return to action versus the Islanders on Thursday, Jason Gregor of reports.

Larsson attended Monday's game-day skate, per Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network, but is likely dealing with the effects of traveling back and forth from Sweden to attend his father's funeral. Ethan Bear should continue to fill in for Larsson on the blue line against the Coyotes on Monday.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Heads to home country for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson will miss Thursday's game against the Predators, as well as the contest opposing the Rangers on Saturday, since he's returned to Sweden to attend his father's funeral.

Ethan Bear has been called up from AHL Bakersfield while Larsson attends to this personal matter.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Reaches career milestone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson played in his 400th game Tuesday night against the Sharks, the Edmonton Sun reports.

Larsson is arguably the best blueliner in Edmonton and is used as such -- he has averaged 21:35 of ice time per contest. While rarely seen as an offensive threat (eight points in 47 games in 2017-18), the Swedish defenseman still holds value in deep leagues and daily formats given his ample opportunities and physical play (178 hits, 102 blocks this season).

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Earns eighth point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson collected an assist in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Kings.

Larsson hasn't shown any rust in the last five games after missing eight as the Oilers' No. 1 defenseman is back to his usual role (21:31 average time on ice). With eight points in 45 games in 2017-18, the 25-year-old blueliner remains worth owning in deep leagues and daily formats especially those that admire his enforcer role -- he also finished the contest with six hits and two blocks.
