  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Finalizes four-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/23/17) Russell agreed to terms on a four-year contract with Edmonton on Friday worth an average annual value of $4 million. John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

    Russell apparently met with the Golden Knights, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement. Instead, the 30-year-old will return to the Oilers for another four years. Injuries short-changed the blueliner's 2016-17 campaign, as he logged just 68 outings and 13 points. In each of his previous two seasons, Russell has been unable to stay healthy, which has kept him below the 20-point threshold -- a possible red flag for fantasy owners.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Doesn't ink Vegas deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Russell has not agreed to terms on a contract with the Golden Knights, effectively eliminating him as the expansion selection from Edmonton, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

    Russell expressed interest in staying with the Oilers at the end of the season, so it should come as no surprise that he'll wait until free agency opens up July 1 in hopes of securing a deal. The 30-year-old won't offer much in terms of fantasy value regardless of where he lands, considering that he's failed to reach the 20-point mark in back-to-back seasons.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Expresses desire to stay in Edmonton

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/12/17) Russell, a pending unrestricted free agent, wishes to remain with the Oilers.

    Russell has played for four different clubs since the Blue Jackets made him a third-round pick in 2005. He garnered a one-year deal with Edmonton, notching 13 points in 68 regular-season games, as well as four in 13 over the course of the postseason. Russell's bread and butter comes in the form of blocked shots -- he had a whopping 213 of those this year -- and that skill is quite transferable if he happens to wind up with yet another organization for the 2017-18 campaign.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Contributes two helpers in Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/17) Russell notched a couple of assists in Sunday's Game 3 loss to the Ducks.

    It was the first points of the playoffs for Russell, who has been relied on more defensively in Edmonton. He blocks shots and logs solid minutes on the team's second defensive pairing with Andrej Sekera, but there really isn't much else he offers from a fantasy perspective. The 29-year-old only collected 13 points in the regular season, so look elsewhere if you're searching for offensive-minded blueliners.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Leads team in blocked shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/24/17) Russell blocked five shots in Edmonton's series-clinching win over San Jose on Saturday.

    Russell collected 27 blocked shots in the opening-round series, which is second among all players in the postseason and a full six blocks better than Dan Girardi in third. That's about the only value Russell has had in fantasy, though. He has no points, seven shots and a minus-1 rating in the playoffs.
