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.
Jan 6 - 11:16 AM

Andrej Sekera scored his fifth goal of the season during overtime to win the game for the Edmonton Oilers 1-0 on Monday night.

Sekera broke a scoreless tie at 2:47 of overtime. Sekera's goal was assisted by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. Sekera now has five goals to go along with ten assists, for a total of fifteen points in forty games played this season.
Jan 5 - 2:25 AM

Andrej Sekera popped home his second goal over his last four games in Saturday's 5-1 loss to Colorado.

Sekera added two blocks on to his tally in over 23 minutes of work as well. Sekera has been a steady supplier for the Oilers, with four goals and 13 points over 33 games so far. He's well on his way to surpassing last season's three goals and 23 points in 73 combined games with Carolina and LA.

Andrej Sekera picked up an assist in Edmonton's 2-1 overtime win versus Vancouver.

Sekera has recorded a point in three of his last four contests. Like the Edmonton Oilers, he started the campaign on a down note with a minus-five rating in the team's first four contests, but he was plus-three over the Oilers' two victories this weekend.
Mon, Oct 19, 2015 09:10:00 AM

Andrej Sekera is off to a slow start as he is a minus-five after only four games.

Sekera was the key off-season signing for the Oilers as they needed help on the blueline. The Oilers have allowed 13 goals in only four games but to be fair, two goals were into the empty net. Nevertheless, the Oilers could sure use a win as they are 0-4 and with Columbus are the only NHL teams without a point thus far.

Andrej Sekera has gotten off to a rough start with the Edmonton Oilers.

"He's come to a new team, he's trying to figure everything out," said Oilers coach Todd McLellan. "He made a mistake (that led to the winning goal in Nashville) that was about as obvious as can be. He knows that. We don't even have to talk to him about it. ... It'll take him some time to settle in. He's a very good player and we expect more from him. But more importantly he expects more from himself." Sekera inked a six-year, $33 million contract with the Oilers over the summer. Edmonton as a whole has struggled this season, with the obvious silver lining being that it's only been two games.

Newly signed defenseman Andrej Sekera said that going to Edmonton was an easy choice for him.

Sekera and the Oilers agreed to a six-year deal with an AAV of $5.5 million per season on Wednesday. "I looked at the roster and I saw the team they had, the coach and the management," Sekera said. "When I saw what kind of players they had there, it made my choice very easy. They have a lot of skill, a lot of speed and a lot of smart players. They have a good coach, a good GM and a good goalie. It was a good place for me to play with my style of hockey, so that's why I chose Edmonton." The 29-year-old will add some experience to a young blue line. He will be counted on to play some significant minutes this season and beyond.
