Tobias Rieder: Won't receive qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder will become a free agent July 1 after the Oilers declined to give him a qualifying offer, Jason Gregor of reports.

Rieder failed to find the back of the net in 67 games last season, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see the club parting ways with the winger, especially considering a qualifying offer would carry a $2 million cap hit. If the German does land with an NHL club, it will likely be for a significantly lower price tag.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Still cold in February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder dished an assist while skating 8:51 in Thursday's 4-3 overtime victory against the Islanders.

Despite the helper, Rieder has only two assists in 10 games in February. Rieder has not scored this season, contributing only 11 assists in 46 games. Additionally, he doesn't provide enough in peripheral stats like hits or shots, and he's seen his ice time average drop by 2:00 compared to last year, when he split the season between the Coyotes and Kings.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Goalless since returning to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder has yet to find the back of the net in his last 18 games since being activated off injured reserve.

Rieder's offensive slump saw him scratched for the final game ahead of the All-Star break (Jan. 22 versus Detroit). With the Oilers seemingly open to making moves ahead of the trade deadline, Rieder's name could come up, especially considering his modest $2 million cap hit and the fact that he will be a restricted free agent next season.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder (upper body) was taken off injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly Transactions.

The Oilers sent Kris Russell (undisclosed) to the IR in a corresponding move. Rieder is a versatile forward who can play anywhere up front, but the German has come up empty on 33 shot attempts this season and seven apples comprise his point total through 18 games. He does hold a spot on the No. 2 power-play unit, though.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Not present for warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder (upper body) will sit out of Tuesday's game versus the Avalanche.

Rieder is traveling with the team for its two-game road trip that concludes Thursday in Winnipeg. The 25-year-old will set his sights on that matchup. As the roster sits, the Oilers will need to send a player down to minors before activating Rieder from injured reserve.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Nearing return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder (upper body) will join the team on its two-game road trip this week, Tom Gazzola of reports.

Rieder was injured back on Nov. 13 but seems to be closing in on a return to game action. He'll be with the Oilers as they embark on a short two-game road trip, making stops in Colorado and Winnipeg. The German-born forward is goalless on the season but does have seven assists in 18 games.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder (upper body) was placed on injured reserve, Jason Gregor of reports.

Rieder will miss the next few weeks with an upper-body injury. Expect him back around the middle of December if all goes according to plan. In a related move, Patrick Russell was promoted to give Edmonton some depth up front. Meanwhile, Rieder, a native of Landshut, Germany, is goalless in 2018-19 but does have seven assists in 18 games.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Set to miss at least one month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder (upper body) will be out for a month, the team announced Thursday.

While Rieder hasn't officially been placed on injured reserve, it's only a matter of time. Based on his rough timeline, the winger is poised to miss the Oilers' next 15 contests while he recovers. While he does have seven helpers on the year, the German has been unable to find the back of the net this season in 18 appearances. Patrick Russell has already been promoted from the minors in light of Rieder's absence.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Injury clarified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder suffered an upper-body injury during Tuesday's game versus the Canadiens, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Rieder will be re-evaluated Wednesday, as he'll look to get healthy for Saturday's matchup versus the Flames. He has seven assists and 32 shots on goal in 18 games this year.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Won't return to Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder (undisclosed) exited Tuesday's game versus the Canadiens and won't return.

It's unclear what's bothering Rieder, and he logged just 6:17 before leaving the contest. If Rieder's injury is long-term, the Oilers will need to call up reinforcements from AHL Bakersfield since they only have Cooper Marody on the roster to replace him.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Adds two more helpers Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder dished out a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-0 triumph over Chicago.

That's three multi-point performances for Rieder in his last five games. He's still looking for his first goal of the season, but the German forward now has seven helpers in 12 games. That's not bad considering Rieder opened the season with a six-game point drought.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Capitalizes on increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Capitals.

Rieder was the beneficiary of some line shuffling, as he easily set a season high with 18:16 of ice time, 3:32 of which came with the extra man. After opening his Oilers tenure with six scoreless games, Rieder's racked up three helpers in the past two.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Reels in elusive point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder recorded an assist in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime home loss to the Penguins.

Rieder, who is operating under a one-year pact with the Oilers, finally registered his first point with the Pacific Division club. The German starts games in a top-six post but is only averaging 12:12 of ice time, which severely cuts into his fantasy prospects.

Oilers' Tobias Rieder: Inks one-year deal with Oilers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with Edmonton on Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

The German forward totaled 12 goals and 25 points with the Kings and Coyotes last season, which was his lowest point total since scoring 21 during his 2014-15 rookie campaign. Rieder will provide some forward depth along with Kyle Brodziak, who also penned a deal with Edmonton on Sunday. It remains to be seen what type of role Rieder will have next season, but expect him to post his fourth consecutive 25-point campaign.

Tobias Rieder: Not getting qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder will not be handed a qualifying offer from the Kings, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

Considering the 24-year-old Rieder is arbitration eligible, the decision not to qualify him doesn't necessarily mean Los Angeles will be parting ways with the winger, as it could still try to work out a deal in free agency. Having said that, it certainly doesn't bode well for the German's future with the organization. In 20 contests with the Kings last season, he tallied just six points and logged a mere 12:50 of ice time per game.

Kings' Tobias Rieder: Secures 25 points in 2017-18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder scored 12 goals and pitched in 13 assists while playing for Arizona and Los Angeles during 2017-18.

After starting the season in Arizona, Rieder was dealt to Los Angeles on Feb. 21, but was just able to post six points (four goals, two assists) in 24 games for his new team. Rieder's 25 points was his lowest amount since his rookie campaign in 2014-15, but he wasn't able to pitch in on the power play in either Arizona or Los Angeles, and his 56.3 defensive zone start percentage certainly didn't help his cause either. Rieder is set to be a restricted free agent, but even if he returns to Los Angeles, it seems unlikely he'll crack the top-six forward group.

Kings' Tobias Rieder: Pots pair of goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder scored twice in Thursday's 7-1 rout of the Avalanche.

The pair of tallies snapped a 10-game point drought for the former Coyote, who's now only managed three points in 13 games since making his way to L.A. His lack of production hasn't been helped by the fact he's received almost three minutes less ice time with the Kings (12:39; down from 15:17 with Arizona). Rieder is currently skating on the second line with Jeff Carter and Tanner Pearson -- a spot normally held down by "That 70's Line" member Tyler Toffoli -- so it'll be interesting to see if his two-goal night sparks further production in the season's final weeks.

Kings' Tobias Rieder: Shipped to LA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder was dealt from the Coyotes to the Kings along with Scott Wedgewood on Wednesday in exchange for Darcy Kuemper, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

Rieder's 2017-18 campaign has been rather uninspiring with the Coyotes, owning just 19 points (eight goals, 11 assists) through 58 games this season. Now that he's joined a more talented squad in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old could be a solid buy-low candidate in some formats -- especially if he cracks the power play.

Coyotes' Tobias Rieder: Making impact with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder scored a power-play goal and had an assist at even-strength in Thursday's win over Montreal.

Rieder only has 19 points through 57 games, but he's playing on the first power-play unit and has recorded a point with the man advantage in three consecutive games. Rieder had previously managed just one assist in his last 13 contests, so we wouldn't get too excited about this recent stretch. The 25-year-old holds value in deeper leagues due to his coveted power-play gig, but he's been too inconsistent overall to be trusted in most fantasy formats.

Coyotes' Tobias Rieder: Snaps lengthy scoring slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rieder scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Monday's 6-1 win over Chicago.

The German had recorded just a single assist through his previous 14 contests and even found himself watching from the press box last week against Winnipeg. Rieder's numbers have dipped this season, and with just seven goals and nine assists through 55 games, he's got an uphill climb to recording his third consecutive 30-point showing. There aren't many seasonal settings where Rieder currently warrants a roster spot.
