  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Scores rare goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/19) Russell scored a goal on his only shot and posted four hits in a 3-2 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday.

    The 31-year-old defenseman hadn't posted a point since Dec. 7, but he missed nearly a month of action, so Russell really went five games without a point. Still, Russell had two assists and no goals in the previous 16 games prior to Saturday, so this was a big goal. The veteran has two goals and nine points in 35 games this season. Missing action has hurt his value, but Russell's numbers on a per-game basis are down across the board in 2018-19.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Pointless in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/19) Russell failed to record a point in Sunday's 4-0 win over Anaheim.

    The veteran blueliner had missed 10 games due to an undisclosed injury. Russell logged 22:39 of ice time in the win Sunday, but with only eight points through 32 games this season, the 31-year-old shouldn't be trusted as an everyday fantasy option.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Gearing up Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/19) Russell (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve and will play Sunday versus the Ducks.

    Russell will suit up for the first time since Dec. 11, and he's expected to work in the top four with either Darnell Nurse or Caleb Jones. He adds little in the fantasy realm with one goal and seven assists in 31 games this year, but his shot-blocking prowess will help shore up the defensive zone with the Oilers losing seven of their last eight outings.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Out Saturday, could play on trip

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/19) Russell (undisclosed) will not be available for Saturday's game against the Kings, but he could return at some point on the road trip.

    Russell's two remaining chances to play on the road trip come Sunday against the Ducks and Tuesday against the Sharks, so be on the lookout for news of his activation from injured reserve. The blueliner has lost much of his fantasy luster since joining the Oilers, as he hasn't served on the power play and owns just eight points through 31 games in 2018-19.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: No sure bet to play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/19) Russell (undisclosed) practiced in full, but he's no lock to play against the Kings on Saturday, Robert Tychowski of the Edmonton Sun reports.

    Matt Benning (personal) is expected to rejoin the team Saturday, but even he might sit out, as the Oilers have been impressed with rookie defenseman Caleb Jones. Russell remains on IR and obviously would need to be activated in order to play.
