Oilers' Adam Larsson: Nets first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson tallied a goal, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

Larsson opened the scoring at 15:14 of the first period with a shot from distance. The Swedish defenseman snapped an 11-game point drought with his tally. He's up to five points, 74 hits, 68 blocks and a minus-4 rating in 36 appearances after missing time early in the year with a broken fibula.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Struggling to find offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson has no points in his last six games.

In that span, the Swede has amassed 13 blocked shots and 13 hits with a plus-4 rating. Larsson has just four assists to go with 53 hits and 59 blocks through 30 games this season. He was just one of four Oilers to be held off the scoresheet in their 8-3 win over the Flames on Saturday.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Bags assist Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson recorded an assist, three shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.

Larsson had the secondary assist on Riley Sheahan's second-period tally. In his last four games, Larsson has dished three helpers to go with nine hits, eight shots and a plus-4 rating. The defenseman is up to five helpers, 40 hits, 46 blocked shots and 29 shots on goal in 24 games overall. His career high in points in 24, but it's doubtful 27-year-old comes anywhere near that mark in an injury-shortened campaign.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Snags helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson produced an assist and four hits in Monday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

Larsson helped out on defense partner Oscar Klefbom's opening tally at 7:51 of the first period. The more defensive of that duo, Larsson has only three assists in 23 outings this season. He's added 45 blocked shots, 38 hits, 26 shots on goal and a minus-10 rating.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Helps out on opening goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson produced an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sabres.

The Swede snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper, but he only has two assists and a minus-12 rating in 21 games this year. He's added 32 hits and 42 blocked shots.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Assist for first point in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson posted an assist in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Wild.

Larsson got on the scoresheet by setting up Gaetan Haas' tally in the third period. It's been a tough year for the Swedish defenseman, who has compiled 13 shots on goal, 26 blocked shots and 16 hits in 12 contests.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Offense non-existent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson has no points and a minus-7 rating in his last 10 games.

He missed seven weeks with a broken fibula sustained in the season opener. Larsson has amassed 21 blocked shots, 13 hits, 17 PIM and 11 shots on goal since his return. The Swede has also averaged 17:03 per game. With the emergence of Ethan Bear this season, Larsson hasn't needed to play as many minutes as usual -- he has averaged at least 20 minutes per game in each of the last five campaigns. The lack of offense makes him much more valuable on the ice than in fantasy, however.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Gets gate in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson was assessed a major for elbowing and a game misconduct in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Avalanche.

Larsson caught T.J. Tynan with an elbow in retaliation for Ryan Graves' crushing hit on the Oilers' Alex Chiasson. Larsson was then assessed 15 PIM and left the game, accounting for his first penalties in five games this year. The high elbow could result in supplemental discipline, but perhaps the league will consider the in-game punishment sufficient for the Swede's misdeed.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Makes return in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson (lower leg) blocked one shot and skated 13:37 in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Kings.

Larsson was sidelined by a broken fibula suffered in the season opener. It appears coach Dave Tippett will ease the blueliner back into action. Larsson has three hits and five blocked shots in two games -- those categories are his strongest from a statistical standpoint.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Approaching return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson (lower leg) is on track to play Thursday against the Kings, Jason Gregor of reports.

Larsson hasn't played season the season opener, and it appears he'll only have to sit out one more game -- Tuesday against the Sharks -- before returning to the lineup. The 27-year-old blueliner provides an offensive touch with 20 points over 82 games last season, although he earns a paycheck through his defensive work with 256 hits and 128 blocked shots in that span.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Needs two more weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dave Tippett said Larsson (lower leg) won't be ready for approximately two more weeks, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Larsson broke his fibula on Opening Night and was originally given a 6-8 week return timetable. If he can return in two weeks, he will have missed seven weeks with the injury. Larsson may be eased back into the lineup at first, but the defensively oriented Swede would likely end up alongside Darnell Nurse once he's up to speed.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Suffers fractured fibula
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson will miss 6-8 weeks due to a fractured left fibula and has been designated for long-term injured reserve.

At a minimum, based on the short end of Larsson's recovery timeline, the blueliner will miss the next 16 contests, though it could certainly be longer. In 82 games last year, the Swede notched three goals and 17 helpers and likely would have pushed for the 20-point mark again this year. Joel Persson (shoulder) and Evan Bouchard figure to compete for the open spot in the lineup, while Matt Benning will likely slot into the top pairing with Darnell Nurse.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Out with broken bone in foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson is sidelined with a broken bone in his foot, Jason Gregor of reports.

The injury occurred on a blocked shot in the first period of Wednesday's season opener versus the Canucks. With a long-term injured reserve status, Larsson would first be eligible to return Oct. 27 versus the Panthers, but an official timeline is unclear.

Oilers' Adam Larsson: Placed on LTIR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larsson (undisclosed) was placed on long-term injured reserve Thursday, Jason Gregor of reports.

The details of Larsson's injury are not clear at this time, but it will result in an extended absence. Larsson experienced foot and back injuries last season, but it's unknown if his current ailment is related to those. The Swedish blueliner skated 22:19 in the Oilers' season opener Wednesday and didn't seem to have an issue during the contest. Now that he's on long-term injured reserve, he'll be sidelined for a minimum of 10 games or 30 days.

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.

December 21, 2018 02:48 AM
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.
