Matt Hendricks will likely not be with Edmonton next season.
The 35-year-old was a valued member of the Oilers the previous three seasons as his tough play and leadership on the ice as well as his presence in the dressing room, aided the young Oilers. But he only played 42 games in the regular season this year as well as not playing at all in the post-season as Edmonton went younger and faster and there was not a spot for Hendricks. He could find work once again in the NHL as a part-timer but with only four goals and seven points this season, his fantasy value is non-existent. May 21 - 7:11 AM
