Jesse Puljujarvi has 16 points in 19 AHL games.

Puljujarvi has seven goals since his demotion and could be recalled once the NHL trade deadline is completed. Puljujarvi was taken fourth overall and should be on everyone's list for next season.

Jordan Eberle notched his second goal of the month during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Predators.

He has five points in February, each coming over his last six games as well. Which hopefully is a sign of things to come as the Oilers charge towards their first playoff berth in 10 years.
Feb 26 - 9:35 PM

Milan Lucic scored his 13th goal of the season during Sunday's 5-4 loss to Nashville.

He's now up to 34 points in 63 games this season. He has just two goals and four points in 11 games during the month of February.
Feb 26 - 9:33 PM

Mark Letestu inched ever-closer to a few career high marks with his goal during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Predators.

He's now up to 12 goals and 29 points through 60 games thus far. He needs just two goals and five points to match his career highs in those categories, and will reach the 30-point plateau for just the second time in eight seasons with one more.
Feb 26 - 9:32 PM

Connor McDavid became the first player to reach 70-points this season during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Predators.

He picked up both a goal and an assist to give him 21 goals and 50 assists, so he's also the first to 71 points through just 63 games. Bonkers for this era of NHL hockey.
Feb 26 - 9:29 PM

Oscar Klefbom picked up a pair of helpers during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Predators.

He's now up to 17 assists and 28 points through 63 games thus far, leaving him just one helper shy of matching his career high in that category.

Cam Talbot just didn't get in a groove in Music City on Sunday.

He made just 23 of 28 stops during the 5-4 loss to Nashville, including two of five on the penalty kill. The loss drops his record to 31-18-7 with a 2.40 GAA and .919 save percentage.
Feb 26 - 9:26 PM

Brandon Davidson and Eric Gryba will be scratched against the Predators on Sunday.

Through 28 games this season he has a point with 28 PIMs with 31 hits and 48 blocks. Gryba meanwhile has compiled five points with 51 PIMs and 117 hits in his 31 games of work.
Feb 26 - 5:08 PM

Adam Larsson will play on Sunday against the Predators.

Through 59 games this season the defender has posted three goals and 15 points along with 106 blocks and 182 hits this season. Pretty good if you're in the right pool.
Feb 26 - 5:05 PM

Darnell Nurse is set to make his long-awaited return to the ice on Sunday against the Predators after missing the last 35 games.

Coach Todd McLellan has noted that he plans to ease the talented defender into the lineup, which means his minutes and matchups will be highly selected for. Be that as it may, you've got to start somewhere and this is as fine a place as any. Through 25 games this season he has three goals and five points along with 17 PIMs, 25 blocks and 60 blocks.
Feb 26 - 4:39 PM

Cam Talbot will be in net against the Predators on Sunday.

Talbot is already 0-1-1 in two games against the Preds this season with four goals against on 71 combined shots. He's also played the Western conference much better, going 20-7-5 with four shutouts, a .932 save percentage and a 2.09 GAA.
Feb 26 - 4:34 PM

Anton Slepyshev will be scratched against the Predators on Sunday.

He's posted eight points in 32 games with the Oilers this season. The 22-year-old has also picked up three goals and 10 points in nine games down on the farm.
Feb 26 - 2:34 PM

Do not be surprised if the Oilers trade for a backup netminder by Wednesday's NHL trade deadline.

The Oilers are comfortable with Cam Talbot as their starter but he has already played 55 games and the month of February is still not done. Laurent Brossoit has some talent but the Oilers need a veteran to take some heat off Talbot during the remainder of the regular season. Stay tuned.

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.
Feb 26 - 8:41 AM

Drake Caggiula is pointless in his last 11 games.

The rookie is struggling offensively and a big reason why is his lack of shots on goal as he has only 61 in 44 games. "He’s getting scoring chances that have to be finished, a number every night, but I look back to what he did in college, from the first to his fourth year. By year four, everything he shot went into the net," coach Todd McLellan said. Caggiula had only eight goals as a freshman in college but had 25 in his senior year. The Oilers will take that kind of improvement.
