  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Finishes amidst point drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/12/18) Russell ended his 2017-18 campaign on a 20-game point drought.

    Russell completed the 2017-18 season with 21 points (four goals, 17 assists) in 78 games -- however, his last point was tallied back on Feb. 18. Aside from the lack of offense, the 30-year-old defenseman was a fearless cog in Edmonton's system -- Russell blocked 223 shots this season. With his single category prowess, the Alberta native is especially valuable in leagues that cater to his selfless style.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Evidently ready to rock

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/18) Russell (undisclosed) said he's "going to play" in Tuesday's road contest against the Hurricanes.

    The fearless shot-blocking rearguard missed a back-to-back set of games in Florida over the weekend, but he be should out there on the second pair with rookie Ethan Bear in this next contest. Russell is often a sneaky play in fantasy leagues because people often think of him as a one-dimensional player. Sure, his 207 blocked shots through 68 games stand out the most, but 21 points (four goals, 17 assists) are not shabby for a player patrolling the back line.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Out again Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/18) Russell (undisclosed) is out for Sunday's game against the Lightning.

    Russell was unable to play Saturday, so it's not surprising he's not able to give it a go Sunday. Of course, the 30-year-old has zero points in his last 10 games, so it's not like fantasy players were relying on him before he got banged up. His next chance to return will be Tuesday against the Hurricanes.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Unavailable Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/18) As expected, Russell (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Panthers.

    With Russell unable to go, Matt Benning (illness) will draw into the lineup. The veteran defender won't have to wait long for his next opportunity to taste game action, as the Oilers will be right back at it Sunday against Tampa Bay.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: All but ruled out Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/18) Russell (undisclosed) is doubtful for Saturday's road game against the Panthers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

    According to Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network, the shot-blocking extraordinaire wasn't on the ice for morning skate, which corroborates the notion that Russell is likely to miss out on game action Saturday. Russell's compiled 21 points (four goals, 17 assists) to complement 207 blocked shots this season, meaning he's likely to be owned in any fantasy league that counts two-way scoring.
