Oilers' Cam Talbot: Defending home goal Tuesday
Talbot is on puck patrol for Tuesday night's home game against the Blues, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network
Talbot will field shots from a Blues team that ranks 30th in the league in high-danger scoring at 41.77 percent. Having lost his starting gig to 30-year-old NHL rookie Mikko Koskinen, Talbot will draw his 19th start of the season while looking to improve upon his substandard 7-9-2 record, 3.22 GAA and .894 save percentage....

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Stops 26 shots
Koskinen allowed three goals while making 26 saves during Sunday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.
Koskinen was beaten three times in the game before Vancouver tacked on an empty-netter to close out the win. The monstrous goalie falls to 11-4-1 on the year, but has a respectable 2.2 goals against average and .928 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Connor McDavid: Nine-game point streak
McDavid provided the primary assist on Edmonton's second goal during Sunday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.
McDavid brought Edmonton within a goal of the lead with his assist in the third period. The superstar center now has the third highest point total in the league with 49 and is on a nine-game point streak.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Adam Larsson: Reaches double-digit assists
Larsson provided an assist during Sunday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.
Larsson had a secondary assist on the opening goal of the game, breaking the scoreless deadlock in the second period. It was the 10th assist of the year for the big defender, marking the first time since 2016 that Larsson has reached double-digit assists.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Draws start in Vancouver
Koskinen will be stationed between the pipes for Sunday's contest against the Canucks, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Koskinen has been one of the best stories of the season thus far. Seeing his first NHL action since 2010, the 30-year-old owns an 11-3-1 record with a 2.12 GAA and .930 save percentage. On top of that, he's posted three shutouts. Koskinen took over Cam Talbot's starting job and has continued to cement his status as a No. 1 goaltender.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Oscar Klefbom: Out 6-8 weeks
Klefbom will miss 6-to-8 weeks after undergoing surgery on his finger, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.
A more definitive timetable has now been revealed for Klefbom's return after he was initially given "weeks" to return. The blueliner's extended absence could have big implications for an Oilers club that's in the thick of the playoff hunt. The Oilers added Caleb Jones -- who made his NHL debut Friday -- to the defensive ranks and he will provide some depth along the blue line for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Jujhar Khaira: Commits to abundance of hits
Khaira doled out six hits in Friday's 4-1 home win over the Flyers.
Khaira may have been more focused on breaking up plays in the latest game, but it's worth noting that he's produced two goals and four assists over eight December contests to raise some eyebrows in deep fantasy leagues. With so much attention on the likes of top-line studs Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, Khaira is miles away from the spotlight in Edmonton. However, he could prove to be a nice punt play in DFS contests given the recent offensive surge.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Continues to thrive in cushy role
Nurse collected two assists in Friday's 4-1 home win over the Flyers.
With Oscar Klefbom (fingers) sidelined, Nurse is sharing the ice with generational pivot Connor McDavid, which has suddenly rendered him very appealing in DFS settings. Nurse is up to three goals and five assists over eight December contests.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Connor McDavid: Another day at the office
McDavid potted two goals and also pitched in an assist Friday in a 4-1 home win over the Flyers.
McDavid is on pace for career highs in goals (48) and assists (73). Truly, the only knock on McDreamy heading into this season is that he rarely converted power-play scoring chances. Both of his goals took place during 5-on-5 action in the latest contest, but he's already lit the lamp six times on the man advantage for a new personal best. At this pace, the generational talent will finish with more power-play tallies than he accrued in his first three seasons combined.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Ranks squarely among elite
Draisaitl fashioned three assists to complement a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-1 home win over the Flyers.
Draisaitl is ranked 13th in the NHL with an offensive pace of 1.27 points per game. For the sake of comparing elite scoring wingers, he's hanging out in the same neighborhood as Toronto's Mitch Marner.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Another sparkling effort
Koskinen saved 31 of 32 shots en route to a home win over the Flyers on Friday.
The only damage against Koskinen was a Jakub Voracek tip-in. Edmonton finally has found a complementary goalie to Cam Talbot in the 30-year-old Finn, but Koskinen has actually been the preferred option of late. He's been brilliant with an 11-3-1 record, 2.12 GAA and .930 save percentage over 16 games. Our mad respect goes out to those who had the foresight to add Koskinen off waivers after the first real sign of Talbot's struggles, though both tenders are hot at the moment.... See More ...

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Massive role with Klefbom out
Nurse scored a goal while skating a game-high 31:04 in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Winnipeg.
Nurse has topped the 30-minute mark in both games since Oscar Klefbom injured his hand, and he's picked up the offense of late with three goals and three assists in the past five games. Prior to this productive stretch, Nurse had just two goals and four helpers in 27 games.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Alex Chiasson: Ties career high in goals
Chiasson recorded a power-play goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets.
Chiasson also tied his second-highest shot total of the season with four. He's ridden an unsustainable 30.2 shooting percentage to 13 goals in 26 games, already tying his previous career high in the category. While Chiasson's shooting percentage should slip moving forward, he figures to remain productive as long as he shares the ice with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisatil.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Keeps rolling in Winnipeg
Draisaitl dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets.
Draisaitl has three goals and six assists over his four-game point streak and is operating well above a point-per-game pace with 39 points through 32 contests. The 23-year-old stud will have no problem eclipsing 70 points for the third consecutive campaign if he can stay healthy.... See More ... See Less
