Luke Gazdic's reputation as one of the best fighters in the NHL is gaining momentum.

Gazdic knocked out the Flames Kevin Westgarth on Saturday and has scored decisive decisions over Clayton Stoner on Thursday and the Bruins Shawn Thornton before the break. "He's proving himself in his first year that he's an extremely tough customer," defenseman Andrew Ference said. Gadzic has 93 penalty minutes this season and has chipped in with a couple of goals and two assists.

Luke Gazdic got some power play time for the first time in his NHL career on Thursday.

The enforcer usually does not see a lot of ice time but coach Dallas Eakins gave him a shot on the power play while the Oilers were up 7-2 as a reward for his sticking up for a teammate and fighting with Patrick Bordeleau of the Avs. "I was pretty shocked when (Eakins) told me I was going out, but the guys loved it and it was a nice gesture, for sure, because there are not going to be too many times during the year where I'm going to get opportunities like that," Gazdic said. "Definitely pretty cool to be out there." Gazdic has a goal and an assist in 23 games to go with 64 penalty minutes.

Luke Gazdic suffered a shoulder injury Saturday afternoon.

He was hurt in a second-period fight with Philadelphia's Jay Rosehill and didn't play in the third frame. Gazdic has amassed 45 penalty minutes and two points in 17 games with the Oilers this year. Consider him day-to-day.

The Edmonton Oilers have claimed enforcer Luke Gazdic off waivers from the Dallas Stars.

The talented Oiler stars are all very young and the team needs an enforcer to take care of them and make sure liberties aren't taken. The Oilers thought they had that in Steve MacIntyre but he apparently suffered a serious knee injury so the Oilers picked up Gazdic. Gadzic spent last season with the Texas Stars of the AHL where he had four goals, 11 points and 80 penalty minutes in 59 games. Look for lots of penalty minutes and nothing else from Gadzic in limited NHL duty this season.

Dallas Stars sign Luke Gazdic to one-year contract.

Gazdic had four goals, 11 points and 80 penalty minutes in 59 games with AHL Texas this season. He's unlikely to make the Stars out of camp and has no fantasy value.

Luke Gazdic has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Dallas Stars.

Gazdic had 11 goals and 23 points in 76 games with the AHL Texas Stars last season. He's also spent at least 100 minutes in the sin bin in each of his last three campaigns in the AHL.

The Dallas Stars have placed Luke Gazdic (shoulder) on the injured reserve list.

Gazdic would have been sent to the minors by now, but he suffered a shoulder injury and injured players are not allowed to be sent to the minors. The 20-year-old will spend the season in the minors once he is healthy.
