The Edmonton Oilers could sit Adam Larsson (lower body) one more game Sunday.

Larsson has been out of action for the last three games and although he practiced on Saturday, it may be for the best to allow him to rest one more time. Larsson has three goals and 15 points this season but has been a giant on the blueline, eating up minutes and playing a solid game in front of Cam Talbot. He has been a big reason for the Oilers turnaround but his fantasy value is still negligible in traditional pools.

Adam Larsson (lower body) took to the ice to practice with his teammates on Saturday.

He missed Friday's match with the Capitals, and it looks like he's trending towards taking on the Predators on Sunday. We'll keep you posted. He's still considered day-to-day.
Feb 25 - 12:45 PM

Adam Larsson (lower body) was not on the ice for Friday's morning skate, and will not play against the Capitals.

Larsson noted that he hopes to be able to play Sunday against the Predators, however. Until then, he's considered day-to-day.
Feb 24 - 1:49 PM

Adam Larsson (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup on Wednesday night.

He missed most of the third period on Tuesday because of an unspecified injury. Larsson was seen limping after the game and should be considered day-to-day for now.
Feb 22 - 1:35 PM

Adam Larsson registered an assist in a 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

It was Larsson's 12th assist and 15th point in 59 contests this season. Although there was some potential for him to see his offensive presence grow with the transition from New Jersey to Edmonton, in the end it doesn't seem to have impacted him at all from that perspective.
Feb 22 - 4:45 AM

Adam Larsson had a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Larsson was on the ice for second period-goals by Viktor Arvidsson and Ryan Johansen. He finished the game with two penalty minutes and three hits in 18:07 of ice time. Oscar Klefbom, Patrick Maroon, Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid also finished with a minus-2 rating.
Feb 2 - 11:46 PM

Adam Larsson had three assists in the Oilers 7-3 win over provincial rival Calgary Saturday.

Larsson has been scoring a bit more of late with six assists in his last seven games. He has two goals and 12 points in 48 games thus far and while that is not great, he is improving. He filled up the stats sheet Saturday with a plus-three rating, four hits and three blocked shots. He is not worth owning in most standard leagues however.
Jan 22 - 8:07 AM

Adam Larsson has three points in his last four games.

That's a deviation from the norm for Larsson in 2016-17 as he has two goals and nine points through 45 games. There was a time when Larsson was seen as a defenseman with a significant amount of offensive upside, but that never materialized in New Jersey and it seems the move to Edmonton hasn't changed that.
Jan 17 - 4:33 AM

Adam Larsson will be scratched against the Flames on Saturday.

Over 44 games with the Oilers this season Larsson has had a nice go. He's posted eight points along with 28 PIMs, 76 hits , and 130 hits. That's certainly not the production worthy of Taylor Hall, but it's much better than some of the guys Edmonton had been fielding his tenure.
Jan 14 - 2:01 PM

Adam Larsson will make his return to Prudential Center Saturday night when the Oilers visit the New Jersey Devils.

Larsson was traded for Taylor Hall last summer and Edmonton likes the way he has fit in with the team. "He can play 25 minutes a night quite comfortably, and he has a lot of experience for a young defenseman," said coach Todd McLellan. "He defends first, he's positionally sound, solid stick, but the physicality part of it is something that was underestimated by me. I didn't think he would be as aggressive as he's been. That's been a welcome addition to our back end." Larsson has also posted six points in 40 games this season for his new club.
Jan 7 - 10:47 AM

Adam Larsson loves playing against the Arizona Coyotes as he has six points in six games.

Larsson has just 68 points in 290 games against every other NHL team and the two teams meet tonight so if you are looking for an inexpensive defenseman in DFS, Larsson is worth a play.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 08:00:00 AM

Adam Larsson scored his second goal of the season Friday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

He gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead, but the Coyotes fought back for the victory. Larsson has one goal and one assist in his last two games and five points in 22 matches overall.
Sat, Nov 26, 2016 11:21:00 AM

Adam Larsson has a goal and three points in 16 games this season.

There was some speculation that Larsson might step up offensively by moving from the New Jersey Devils to Edmonton Oilers, but so far that hasn't materialized. He has been logging 20:20 minutes per game though and has 45 hits and 28 blocks this season.
Tue, Nov 15, 2016 10:34:00 AM

Adam Larsson had a maintenance day off Saturday.

That was his second in three days but coach Todd McLellan said that there was nothing wrong with the blueliner, just that he has been playing plenty of minutes. The Oilers did give up Taylor Hall to get Larsson and while his offensive skills have not been up to what many thought they would be when he was drafted fourth overall in 2011, he is a very solid defenseman who should get 25-30 points this season.
