Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Spurns NHL offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev signed a two-year contract extension with CSKA Moscow on Thursday, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.

Previous reports indicated the Oilers had made an offer to Slepyshev in the hope of convincing him to return to North America, but it appears the 25-year-old winger is content to stay in the KHL. While there is always a chance, this likely will close the door on the Russian ever making his way back to the NHL, though Edmonton will continue to hold his rights should he be tempted to make the move.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Contract talks in works
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to general manager Ken Holland, the club has offered Slepyshev a contract in hopes of signing him ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Slepyshev received a qualifying offer from Edmonton back in July of 2018 but ultimately decided to sign a two-year deal with KHL club CSKA Moscow. In two seasons in Russia, the 2013 third-round pick notched 33 goals and 37 helpers in 110 appearances. If he signs with the Oilers, fantasy owners may want to track his progress during camp as a potential late-round sleeper pick.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Playing in Russia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev -- who signed a two-year deal with CSKA Moscow in the offseason -- has recorded two goals and four assists in 18 KHL contests.

Although Slepyshev's rights remains under the Oilers' control after the club gave him a qualifying offer, the two sides were unable to reach a long-term deal and the Russian instead returned to his homeland. Whether the 24-year-old ever comes back to the NHL remains to be seen.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Receives qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers have offered Slepyshev a qualifying offer.

The 24-year-old winger scored 12 points (six goals, six assists) in 50 games for Edmonton in 2017-18. However, Slepyshev is expected to sign with the KHL in the near future -- this qualifying offer merely allows the Oilers to retain his NHL rights. The young Russian failed to carve out a role in Oil Country this past season, and transferring leagues would only diminish his weak fantasy value in 2018-19.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Bound for KHL?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev is expected to leave the Oilers and join CSKA Moscow of the KHL since his contract rights were acquired by Salavat Julaev UFA on Thursday, TSN reports.

While the original report comes from Aivis Kalnins, who's a reputable KHL insider, we'd take this news with a grain of salt since Slepyshev's cashing out the balance of a three-year entry-level contract with the Oilers and it would be a bit strange to see the pending restricted free agent returning to Russia before his agent had the chance to negotiate a new contract. Selected in the third round (88th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Slepyshev has compiled 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) over 102 games with Edmonton.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Finishes nomadic season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev finished the 2017-18 season with 12 points in 50 games.

Slepyshev was quite the nomadic player in 2017-18 -- he saw time on the first line with Connor McDavid, then time on the third line. He was deemed a healthy scratch and even went back down to Bakersfield. It will be interesting to see what Edmonton does with the 23-year-old Russian.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev recorded an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.

The assist was Slepyshev's first point in the last four games. With only seven points on the season, the 23-year-old Russian is having a difficult time carving out a role in Edmonton -- he spent time alongside Connor McDavid on Feb. 17 yet was on the third line in this contest. Until Slepyshev can skate on more guaranteed opportunities, he is best left on the wire.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Lights the lamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev scored a goal in Monday's 7-5 loss to the Panthers.

The 23-year-old Russian now has two goals in his last three games. Sadly, Slepyshev has only garnered six points in 25 games this season. While his average ice time (11:28) doesn't guarantee a lot of opportunities, the Oilers appear to be sellers at the trade deadline so that could quickly change. Slepyshev is worth monitoring but is best left on the wire for now.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Scores second goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev found the back of the net in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

The goal was Slepyshev's second of the season, bringing his point total to five in 23 games in 2017-18. The young German has been mentioned in trade talks as of late and while the increased ice time (15:25, his highest since Nov. 3) proved beneficial, Slepyshev has minimal fantasy value as long as he remains in Edmonton.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: On trading block
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli is fielding trade offers for Slepyshev, Mark Spector of reports.

Slepyshev is no longer waiver exempt, and the Oilers haven't had much use for the 23-year-old Russian, who is cashing out the balance of a three-year, entry-level contract valued at $1.525 million annually. The winger has scored once to go along with two assists against a minus-4 rating through 18 games, making him a rather unattractive fantasy option so long as he remains in Edmonton. However, it might not be a bad idea to buy low in case the 2013 third-round pick soon finds himself in a better situation.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers recalled Slepyshev from AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday.

The Oilers waived Nathan Walker in a corresponding move, so Slepyshev could be tasked with slotting into a bottom-six role for Thursday's matchup with the Blues. The 23-year-old forward has notched one goal and three points in 15 games with the big club this campaign.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Sent down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev was sent down to AHL Bakersfield on Monday.

With Adam Larsson returning, Slepyshev was sent down to make room for him. The 23-year-old Russian has three points in 15 games with the big club this year.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev (lower body) was activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's matchup with Boston, per the NHL media site.

Slepyshev was already given a good chance to take on the Bruins, and this move all but confirms that notion. While the Russian hasn't generated offense this season -- having logged just two points in 10 contests this season -- he skated on the Oilers' second line alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Patrick Maroon in Saturday's practice, which could improve his fantasy value for Sunday.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev (lower body) is considered probable for Sunday's road game against the Bruins, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Edmonton's third-round (88th overall) draft selection from 2013 has missed the past eight games with his injury, but it appears that his activation from injured reserve is imminent. A power forward with slick hands, Slepyshev needs to prove that he can stay out of the medical room for a sustained period of time before he can be taken seriously in fantasy circles.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Expected to remain sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev (lower body) isn't expected to be available for Wednesday's game against Detroit.

Slepyshev remains on injured reserve due to a lower-body injury, so his activation off the injured list will be the best indicator of his readiness to return to the lineup. Jesse Puljujarvi will continue to skate in a bottom-six role until Slepyshev is given a clean bill of health.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Could be back this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev (lower body) is back practicing, and although he won't play Tuesday, he may return to action Wednesday against the Red Wings.

An earlier report had him pegged as likely to return by the weekend, so if he doesn't play Wednesday it seems like Friday will be the day for Slepyshev. However, he only has two points and 13 shots on goal through 10 games, so the fantasy impact is likely to be minimal.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev appeared to be healthy versus New Jersey on Wednesday -- even recording a goal -- but evidently re-injured his lower-body ailment and has been placed on IR.

It's possible Slepyshev returned to the lineup too soon, as he was limited to just 10:27 of ice time before being forced to leave the game. By placing the winger on injured reserve, the Oilers will be forced to play without him for at least their next three outings. Jesse Puljujarvi has been called up from AHL Bakersfield to fill out the 23-man roster.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev (lower body) was on the ice during his team's warmups Thursday, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

The 23-year-old winger has missed the last two contests while nursing a lower-body injury. Slepyshev has recorded just one assist this season and averaged just over 11 minutes of ice time per game. His fantasy value remains very low for the time being.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev (lower body) is questionable for Thursday's tilt against the Devils, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Even when healthy, Slepyshev has been unable to offer much in terms of offensive production, as he has managed a paltry one point in nine appearances. If the winger can't figure his game out once cleared to play, he could find himself watching from the press box as a healthy scratch before long.

Oilers' Anton Slepyshev: Surprise scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slepyshev (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Islanders, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

Slepyshev was expected to return to the lineup after participating in Tuesday's morning skate, but that notion was quickly disproved when he didn't take the ice for pregame warmups. His next chance to play will come Thursday against New Jersey.
