Through 80 career NHL games, the 23-year-old has just 12 points with 50 PIMS and 185 hits since making his debut in 2012-13. He's seen just a pair of games this season so we wouldn't expect much from him.

Jamie Oleksiak and Gemel Smith will be scratched from Saturday's match with the Wild.

Unfortunately neither have found the score sheet in five combined games. Neither have track records of production so we wouldn't count on either moving forward.

Jamie Oleksiak (lower body) seems healthy enough to play, but he probably won't be in the lineup on Tuesday.

Jamie Oleksiak's 16-year-old sister, Penny, is making waves for Canada at the 2016 Olympic Games.

She anchored Canada to a bronze medal in the 4x100-metre relay on Saturday and she captured a silver medal in the 100-metre butterfly on Sunday. Jamie took to Twitter on Sunday night and he was speechless with pride: "I don't even know what to say right now, that was one of the most intense and amazing things I've seen." Perhaps her success will help inspire him in his push to land a permanent spot on the Stars' defense corp this season.

Jul 13 - 10:38 PM

The Dallas Stars have inked Jamie Oleksiak to a one-year contract.

Oleksiak had two assists in 19 games with Dallas in 2015-16. He also had two assists in eight AHL contests. "Jamie brings size and a physical element to our backend," said Stars GM Jim Nill. "We're expecting him to have a solid summer of training and development and look forward to him competing for a regular spot in our lineup."

Apr 7 - 8:35 PM

Jamie Oleksiak and Travis Moen will be scratched against Nashville on Tuesday night.

Unfortunately with just 39 games played between them at this point in the season, there isn't much fantasy value in either Oleksiak or Moen.
