After a less than ideal start to the season, Andrej Sekera now seems to be living up to the Oilers' expectations.

Sekera is playing in the first campaign of a six-year, $33 million contract. "He’s really starting to perform the way we thought he would," said Oilers head coach Todd McLellan. "It took him a little while to adjust to two things — No. 1, going from East to West and (No. 2) a new team. Sometimes when a free agent joins a new team, he’s joining a mature coaching staff and a mature team and he slides in. But he had to learn like the rest of us, how to act around each other and how to behave and how we were going to play. It takes a little while, but he’s been really good." Sekera has five goals and 15 points in 40 contests this season.
