Larsson provided an assist in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.
Larsson set up Maxime Comtois for the Ducks' lone goal of the contest in the second period. It's a positive sign for Larsson, who will likely find himself in a battle for playing time with the newly signed Ben Hutton. However, the Ducks aren't using their third pairing of Larsson and Jani Hakanpaa much -- the former has yet to crack 13 minutes in either of their first two games. Without more ice time, Larsson won't be a viable option in most fantasy formats.
The Ducks have loaned Larsson to Kristianstads IK in Sweden, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Larsson appeared in 60 games with the Ducks last season, picking up 11 points while averaging 16:09 of ice time in a bottom-four role. The 23-year-old blueliner will head to his native Sweden for now, but he'll almost certainly be recalled ahead of next year's training camp. He'll continue to be a regular in the lineup for Anaheim in 2020-21, but he won't be worth rostering in most fantasy formats due to his lack of offensive upside.
Larsson signed a two-year, $2.4 million contract extension with the Ducks on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Larsson has been a solid top-four defenseman for Anaheim over the past two seasons, notching 16 points while averaging 16:34 of ice time per contest in 109 games. However, the 23-year-old Swede likely won't ever produce enough offense to warrant consideration in most fantasy formats.
Larsson finished the season with two goals and nine assists in 60 games.
The 2015 27th overall pick has yet to really move the fantasy needle in his first 113 games in the league. As such, especially considering he doesn't offer much by way of peripheral metrics (34 hits, 57 blocked shots, minus-9), Larsson shouldn't be on any draft radars come next season.
Larsson picked up an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild.
Larsson has registered three assists in his last seven outings. The Swedish blueliner is up to 11 points, 58 shots and a minus-11 rating through 58 contests. The 22-year-old Larsson likely doesn't do enough to earn fantasy attention, but he could be worth a look as a stash in dynasty formats given his first-round pick status (2015).
Larsson posted an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers.
Larsson put a centering pass on the tape of Nicolas Deslauriers' stick, and the latter converted for a 2-0 Ducks lead in the first period. In his last 10 games, Larsson has four assists and 14 blocks. The Swede is up to nine points, 51 shots and 53 blocks in 52 contests this year. He could be in line for more playing time if Hampus Lindholm (upper body) is out long-term.
Larsson scored a goal and went plus-2 in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Kings.
Larsson went 13 games without a point. With the tally, he officially has a career-high six points in 43 contests this season. The Swede has added 42 shots, 38 blocked shots and 22 hits, but those moderate non-scoring stats aren't enough to boost his fantasy value much.
Larsson recorded an assist in Friday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.
Larsson was originally credited with the goal at 10:37 of the second period, but it was later given to Maxime Comtois, who tipped it in. It's just the fourth point of the year for the Swedish blueliner, who has added 29 shots on goal and 10 PIM in 28 games. Larsson's low output makes him safe to ignore from a fantasy standpoint.
Larsson (upper body) was minus-3 with two PIM and one shot on goal in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers.
Larsson missed Anahiem's most recent game Saturday with his injury, but was right back in there Sunday. Unfortunately, he was on the ice for three New York goals and is now minus-6 over his last three games. The 22-year-old has a goal and two assists in 26 games.
Larsson (upper body) will play in Sunday's game against the Rangers.
Larsson wasn't able to play in Saturday's game against the Islanders, but the 22-year-old recovered in time for the final game of the road trip. The Swedish blueliner has posted three points and a minus-5 rating over 26 NHL contests.
Larsson (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Islanders, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
Larsson will miss a second straight contest, but he's considered day-to-day, so he may be ready for Sunday's game against the Rangers. His absence will allow both Michael Del Zotto and Korbianian Holzer to stay in the lineup.
Larsson (upper body) didn't suit up for Wednesday's game against the Devils and is considered day-to-day.
Larsson played a season-low 12:47 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to the Flyers, so it's likely he suffered this injury during the contest. It doesn't sound like a serious issue, though, so Larsson will aim to return Saturday against the Islanders.
The Ducks recalled Larsson from AHL San Diego on Monday.
The 2017 first-round pick made the 23-man roster out of training camp, spending 25 games with the Ducks and accruing three points. Larsson was sent down at the end of November, and he's played five AHL games, recording two points. The Ducks will take Larsson on their upcoming four-game road trip, and his next chance to crack the lineup is Tuesday in Philadelphia.
Larsson was sent down to AHL San Diego on Saturday.
Larsson collected three points in 25 games at the NHL level. He's yet to appear in an AHL game this season.
Larsson netted his first NHL goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.
Larsson scored just 25 seconds after Rickard Rakell got the Ducks on the board, rifling a deep point shot past Alex Stalock. The 22-year-old defenseman now has two points in 16 appearances. He's going to play on the bottom pairing most often this season as he continues to adjust to the NHL game. Larsson needed 69 career games to pot his first goal.
Larsson has logged one assist and a plus-2 rating while averaging 16:23 of ice time through the first six games of the season.
Larsson will be a solid bottom-four defender for the Ducks in 2019-20, but he won't be a viable fantasy option as a player with limited offensive upside skating in a sheltered role.
Anaheim assigned Larsson to AHL San Diego on Saturday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
The Ducks played the last game of their season Friday, so Larsson will head to the minors to try to help San Diego secure a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs. The 2015 first-round pick will finish the campaign having notched five assists in 49 games with the big club, and he should have a full-time role in Anaheim in 2019-20.
Larsson (leg) went minus-2 with three shots and two hits and blocked shots apiece in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Flames.
Considering the 21-year-old blueliner returned from a four-game injury layoff and received 20:41 of ice time with a nice helping of ancillary counting stats, Larsson is back in play as a budget option in daily formats. The Swede has only compiled five assists to represent his entire point total over 46 games, but he tends to compensate by adding decent totals in the defensive zone, as evidenced by 40 hits and 57 blocked shots.
Larsson (leg) will play in Friday's game versus the Flames.
Larsson will return after missing the last four games, and his presence will bump Jake Dotchin out of the lineup. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect much out of the 21-year-old, as he has zero goals and five assists in 49 NHL games.
Larsson (leg) is listed as a scratch Tuesday in Vancouver, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports.
Larsson's next chance to return to the lineup will come Friday in Calgary. His absence likely isn't causing many waves in the fantasy realm, as the Swede has just five points in 45 games this season and is still searching for his first NHL goal.
