  • Oilers' Oscar Klefbom: Out against Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/17) Klefbom (illness) won't play Friday against the Sabres.

    Losing their top defenseman is naturally going to shake things up for the Oilers, as well as the countless fantasy players relying on Klefbom for his offensive acumen. Buffalo has been bad defensively this year, so this opens up the door for a guy like Eric Gryba to step up with a big game.

    Oilers' Oscar Klefbom: Game-time decision Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/17) Klefbom is a game-time decision Friday against the Sabres due to an illness.

    Goalie Cam Talbot is also sitting against Buffalo due to the flu, so it seems like something is going around the Edmonton locker room. The Sabres have really struggled defensively, so this is a great matchup for Klefbom if he can play.

    Oilers' Oscar Klefbom: Collects two points against Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/15/17) Klefbom scored his second goal of the season and added a helper in Tuesday's lopsided win over the Golden Knights.

    After scoring a career-high 12 goals last season, Klefbom has had a somewhat slow start to the 2017-18 season. His six points through 18 contests aren't awful, but the 24-year-old is playing on the top power-play unit and logging heavy minutes at even strength. The talent is there for him to be a very valuable blueliner, so now that the Oilers appear to have gotten the offense going, look for Klefbom to ramp up his production. Make sure you get him in your lineup.

    Oilers' Oscar Klefbom: Tallies helper Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/17) Klefbom recorded an assist and minus-2 rating during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

    The Swedish defenseman has had a difficult start to the season with just one goal and four points -- and a minus-6 rating -- in the first 16 games. The first-round pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft had 38 points a year ago, so a turnaround is certainly likely, but if he struggles to produce offensively the door will open for Andrej Sekera (knee) to eat into Klefbom's power-play time once the former gets healthy. Fantasy owners should wait and see how things shake out, as Klefbom has too much talent and opportunity to ditch just because he's in a slump.

    Oilers' Oscar Klefbom: Will have opportunity to succeed

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/5/17) Klefbom led the Oilers with 22:30 of ice time in Wednesday's season-opening win over the Flames.

    The 24-year-old defender played more than two minutes more than anyone else, which included time on the power play. He emerged last year with career-high marks in goals (12), assists (26), points (38), plus/minus (plus-7), power-play points (16), and shots (201). He's not Erik Karlsson, but he will be given the opportunity to build on last season's success.
