Matt Fraser is projected to play in Monday's contest against Winnipeg.

While Fraser has amassed seven points in 17 games thus far, he has just eight points in 51 games otherwise since debuting with Dallas in 2011-12. Aulie meanwhile has played just five times since mid-December. Needless to say, neither have much fantasy value.

Matt Fraser scored his sixth goal of season and added in two helpers in Thursday night's 3-2 victory Buffalo.

Fraser finished off a pretty passing sequence to tie the game at one ten minutes after Tyler Myers opened the scoring in the first. He also was a key contributor to the Oilers' other two goals for his first career three-point game. In a dozen games he now has three goals seven points.

Edmonton Oilers coach Todd Nelson is familiar with Matt Fraser's work in the minors.

"He's a guy who can shoot the puck," said Nelson of Fraser. "He scored his fair share of goals against us so I've seen him up close. He's a hard working guy who can find the back of the net." That was certainly true in the AHL, but Fraser got very little playing time with the Boston Bruins and consequently hasn't had much of an impact in the NHL. The Oilers claimed him off of waivers and it will be interesting to see if Nelson gives him the opportunity to play on a scoring line.
