Mark Letestu was back on the fourth line Friday in a 3-2 shootout loss to Arizona.

He was a healthy scratch for three straight games, so that Edmonton could give some playing time to rookie Drake Caggiula. Matt Hendricks and Anton Slepyshev were sent to the press box, so that Letestu and Benoit Pouliot could play.

Mark Letestu will be scratched against the Stars on Saturday night.

Letestu has posted two goals and six points in 18 games this season, but nothing over his last seven. With the team getting a trio of spark plugs back tonight, it's no wonder why the veteran is scratched.

Mark Letestu was the only one to find the back of the net during the overtime shootout to lift the Edmonton Oilers to a 4-3 victory over the New York Islanders.

Letestu’s shot beat Jaroslav Halak on his glove side to end a three-game losing streak. Letestu was fairly fresh for the shootout, recording only 16:43 minute of ice time; only four forwards had less time in the game. Halak was not with 64:37 minutes in the net.

What a way to open the scoring in Sunday's 3-0 Heritage Classic win over the Jets.

Mid way through the game, Mark Letestu rushed in on Connor Hellebuyck and scored a short-handed goal. His second marker of the season. It was a broken play that started in the defensive zone, so it makes for a long highlight that'll surely go on the personal reel. The veteran forward now has four points in six games thus far.

Mark Letestu registered an assist in a 3-2 win over Carolina on Tuesday.

Letestu now has a goal and two points in four games this season. He finished with 25 points in 2015-16 and he should end up around that mark again.

Mark Letestu scored the game winning goal Tuesday night in the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

Letestu scored 10 of his 68 career goals in 82 games with the Oilers last year. Letestu made the most of his opportunity Tuesday night with only two shots on goal in 17:07 minutes on the ice.

Mark Letestu had an assist in a 3-2 loss to Colorado on Sunday.

Letestu has nine goals and 22 points in 75 contests in 2015-16. He needs just one more point to reach the 150-mark in his career.
Mar 21 - 8:37 AM

Mark Letestu scored twice and added an assist in a 6-4 Edmonton victory over St. Louis.

Letestu was the leading scorer for the Oilers in a wild high-scoring affair. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice on the power-play which the Oilers capitalized on four times. Five Oiler players scored in double digits in a surprising explosion of goals against a strong Blues team.

Mark Letestu scored a goal in a 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Sunday night.

The goal was Letestu’s sixth of the season and his 12th point in 43 games. He's a reliable bottom six-forward, but he doesn't possess any fantasy value moving forward. Lauri Korpikoski and Matt Hendricks earned the assists on his first period goal.
Jan 11 - 12:21 AM

Mark Letestu lit the lamp for the Oilers, but it wasn’t enough as they fell 2-1 in overtime to the Canucks on Saturday.

Raise your hand if this had any direct effect on your fantasy team. Didn’t think so. Letestu’s goal was his first since Dec. 2, and just his fourth of the season (and ninth point). Lauri Korpikoski and Matt Hendricks chipped in with the helpers.

Mark Letestu scored once and added an assist in a 3-2 shootout win over Boston on Wednesday.

Letestu's goal was a shorthanded marker off a nice setup two-on-one with Matt Hendricks who also scored in a nice game for the Oiler's depth forwards. The goal was his third of the season and fourth assist. Jordan Eberle scored the only goal in the shootout for either team.

Mark Letestu will be a game-time decision Wednesday.

He didn't take part in the morning skate, which makes him questionable to play against Boston.

Mark Letestu broke his five game point drought with a goal in Friday's 5-1 win over New Jersey.

It had also been six games since he'd scored. While Letestu wasn't brought on to put the puck in the net, four points in 20 games is not acceptable. Which says something about Edmonton's center depth, if nothing else.
Sat, Nov 21, 2015 12:29:00 AM

Mark Letestu hasn't recorded a point in his last seven contests.

Letestu has a goal and two assists in 15 games this season. He typically doesn't play with the Oilers' skilled forwards, but he did get some ice time with Benoit Pouliot and Nail Yakupov recently. We'll have to see where that leads, but we're not too optimistic about Letestu's chances of being a significant producer offensively this season.
