Oilers' William Lagesson: Gets regular shift in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lagesson (upper body) had one shot and one hit in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Senators.

Lagesson was seeing his first action following a 10-game absence and, with Edmonton able to consistently roll all three defensive pairings, received just over 19 minutes of ice time, all of it at even strength. The 25-year-old Swede has two points through nine games but has performed effectively as a shutdown defender when called upon.

Oilers' William Lagesson: Earns first NHL point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lagesson produced an assist in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Flames.

Lagesson's first NHL point was mostly of his own doing. His shot attempt was tipped in for a goal by Jujhar Khaira at 6:53 of the first period to get the Oilers on the board. A fourth-round pick from 2014, Lagesson is still in competition for playing time on a deep blue line in Edmonton. The Swede has just one shot on goal, four hits and two blocked shots through four contests in a limited role on the third pairing.

Oilers' William Lagesson: Returns from loan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lagesson will attend the Oilers' training camp, Dustin Nielson of TSN 1260 reports.

Lagesson was on loan with HC Vita Hasten in Sweden while awaiting the start of training camp in North America.

Oilers' William Lagesson: Inks two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lagesson signed a two-year, $1.45 million contract extension with the Oilers on Wednesday. The first year of the deal is two way, whereas the second year of the deal is one way.

Lagesson is currently playing for HC Vita Hasten in his native Sweden's HockeyAllsvenskan league, having racked up three goals and nine points while posting a plus-6 rating through 11 games. He spent most of the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Bakersfield, notching 10 points in 25 contests, but he also made eight appearances with the Oilers, going scoreless while registering a minus-4 rating over that span. He'll likely once again bounce between the AHL and NHL in 2020-21, but he could be a full-time player for the big club the following year.

Oilers' William Lagesson: Eligible for AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers assigned and recalled Lagesson to and from AHL Bakersfield on Monday.

The move was strictly to make Lagesson eligible for the remainder of the AHL season. The 24-year-old could be back down in the minors before too long, as he's suited up in just six NHL games this season. The Swede will look to crack the lineup again for Tuesday's game against Anaheim.

Oilers' William Lagesson: Press box regular
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lagesson has appeared in just one of the Oilers' last seven games.

Lagesson went minus-1 with three shots on goal and two blocked shots in a loss to the Sharks on Feb. 6. Other than that appearance, he's been serving as defensive depth while Kris Russell (concussion) is out. Lagesson should not be on fantasy owners' radar.
