Adam Larsson is excited to be a member of the Edmonton Oilers.
Prior to coming to New Jersey, Larsson was seen as a blueliner that had a lot of offensive potential. The Devils pushed Larsson into being more of a defensive-minded defenseman and while that's helped his game, he's hoping to grow offensively now that he's in Edmonton. "I feel I’m a good fit for that team," Larsson said of the Oilers. Jun 30 - 9:02 AM

Adam Larsson has been dealt to the Edmonton Oilers for Taylor Hall.

In 82 games last season, Larsson recorded three goals and 18 points, which was down from his personal best of 24 over 64 contests in 2014-15. Larsson was the fourth overall pick in 2011 and he hasn't developed his two-way game the way New Jersey hoped he would.

The 23-year-old had just one point in his previous nine games before Tuesday's tilt against St. Louis. Larsson picked up a secondary assist on Bobby Farnham's goal and the primary assist on Lee Stempniak's tally. He has one goal and 10 points in 44 games.

Although it's been hard at times for Adam Larsson to earn regular minutes with New Jersey, he said he never considered asking for a trade.

The subject came up because another highly regarded prospect, Tampa Bay's Jonathan Drouin, wants to be traded after struggling to solidify a role with the Lightning. "It never crossed my mind to ask for a trade or anything like that," Larsson said. "You just have to realize it's a process even if you're a young guy. You're not going to have the same role like you have in juniors or like you had before all the time. You just have to work your way through it." Now 23-years-old, Larsson hasn't developed into the offensive force we were hoping for, but he is averaging 22:05 minutes per game.

Adam Larsson had an assist in a 2-1 shootout loss to Boston on Sunday.

Adam Larsson's fight on Sunday was his first in the NHL.

Larsson also picked up two minutes for instigating and a 10-minute misconduct. The incident occurred early in the second period when Larsson took exception to Steve Bernier's boarding hit to Andy Greene. "It's another component of our team and (I'm) proud of that, proud of the response to that," Devils coach John Hynes said. "It was nice to see him step in there and stick up, especially on a hit like that and it was good to see. It's another component where you see they care about each other, they stick up for each other. You win and lose games, but that's a real important component to have and that was a bright spot tonight." It was one of the few bright spots for the Devils as they lost 4-0.

Adam Larsson had 17 penalty minutes in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the New York Islanders.

Larsson picked up the penalties on the same sequence. He dropped the gloves with Steve Bernier after the Islanders forward flattened Andy Greene. Larsson picked up five for fighting, two minutes for instigating and a 10 minute misconduct.

Adam Larsson had an assist in a 4-2 victory against the Florida Panthers on Sunday.

It was just Larsson's sixth point in 27 games this season. He showed some offensive promise under former coach Scott Stevens, but that hasn't translated to the 2015-16 campaign under new bench boss John Hynes.

Adam Larsson registered an assist in a 3-2 victory over Vancouver on Sunday.

Larsson has a goal and just four points in 20 games this season. He took a step forward in 2014-15 once Scott Stevens became the team's co-coach, but new bench boss John Hynes hasn't been getting the same results out of Larsson as far as the blueliners' offensive output goes.

Adam Larsson won't face any supplemental discipline for his hit on Vancouver's Jared McCann.

He was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for interference at the 9:55 mark of the third period of Sunday's game. It's unclear at this time if the Devils will ask for a review to rescind the major penalty and game misconduct.
Mon, Nov 9, 2015 05:26:00 PM

Adam Larsson was booted out of Sunday's game against Vancouver.

Larsson received an interference major and a game misconduct for his late hit on Jared McCann midway through the third period of the contest. Larsson had a separate interference minor earlier in the contest, so he finished with 17 PIM.

New Jersey Devils GM Ray Shero said that he hasn't discussed the possibility of trading Adam Larsson with any other general manager.

Larsson's name had been linked to a trade rumor involving the Columbus Blue Jackets and, more specifically, Cam Atkinson. It would be surprising if New Jersey did end up trading Larsson this soon after inking him to a six-year, $25 million contract.

Adam Larsson has been reported as a potential trade target of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Columbus is looking to acquire a defenseman to help reverse its fortunes after opening the season with a 0-7-0 record. The package to get Larsson would reportedly include Cam Atkinson. Take all this with a grain of salt as big trades at this stage of the season are pretty rare, but at the same time, it's certainly possible.
