Analysis: Luke Gazdic has been cleared for contact and has been taking part in practice but still needs to work off the rust and get into game shape.

Oilers' Gazdic Gets In Full-Contact Practice

News: Luke Gazdic (shoulder) took part in a full-contact practice Sunday, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Luke Gazdic, who is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, finally seems to be nearing the finish line, though he's still not deemed ready to play. The 25-year-old hopes to get enough practice time in to be ready for Opening Night. He'll be tasked with playing an enforcer role for the Oilers on the checking line, making him a useful source for penalty minutes and little else.

Oilers' Gazdic Had Begun Skating

News: Luke Gazdic (shoulder) has begun skating but is not yet ready for contact, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Luke Gazdic's only value in fantasy leagues is his willingness to drop the gloves. He was tied for third in the league last season with 15 fights and has quickly become one of the more feared heavyweights in the game. He is expected to be ready to play at some point during training camp.

Gazdic Re-Signs With Oilers For Two Years

News: Luke Gazdic (shoulder) re-signed with the Oilers on a two-year, $1.6 million contract Tuesday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN Edmonton reports.
Analysis: Luke Gazdic will bring his physical brand of hockey back to Edmonton, where he compiled 127 penalty minutes and 103 hits over 67 games. His status as a checking liner mostly precludes him from getting involved offensively, however, muting his fantasy impact. Gazdic underwent shoulder surgery in March and may be sidelined for much of training camp as a result, but he's not expected to miss too much time once the regular season begins.

Oilers Give Qualifying Offer to Gazdic

News: Luke Gazdic was one of nine Oilers given a qualifying offer Monday, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Luke Gazdic has one purpose on the team and that is to provide protection to teams offensive stars. When healthy and in the lineup, he is a five minute fighting major waiting to happen.

Oilers' Gazdic To Undergo Shoulder Surgery

News: Luke Gazdic is slated to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery this week.
Analysis: The report notes that Luke Gazdic will be sidelined for about six months, so those who had been relying on the winger for PIM (he racked up 127 in 67 games this season) will need to look elsewhere down the strech.

Oilers' Gazdic Scraps Again

News: Luke Gazdic sent Calgary's Kevin Westgarth to the locker room in what looked like a clean fight in the first period of Saturday's contest. He served five minutes for the fight and delivered three hits in the game.
Analysis: You know not to count on Luke Gazdic for scoring, but if you have him for toughness, he's earning his pay. He's served two fighting majors in his two appearances since the Olympic break.

Ice Time Scarce For Oilers' Gazdic

News: Luke Gazdic is averaging just 5:42 of ice time over 52 games this season.
Analysis: As one might expect, Luke Gazdic's production has been unimpressive, as the winger has just two goals and two assists on the season. He has been able to rack up the penalty minutes (83) and hits (81) in spite of the spot duty, but there's several players out there on waivers in most leagues who can provide similar figures in those categories while not being a total drain in the scoring columns.

Oilers' Gazdic Over Shoulder Injury

News: Coach Dallas Eakins said Luke Gazdic is no longer bothered by his shoulder injury and is available for Friday's game vs. the Sharks.
Analysis: Eakins wouldn't confirm whether or not Luke Gazdic would be in the lineup Friday, as he's typically been a player on the bubble for a fourth-line role on any given night. He has compiled just two points in the 17 games he's suited up for this season.

Oilers' Gazdic Exits With Shoulder Injury

News: Luke Gazdic left Saturday's game with a shoulder injury and will not return, the Edmonton Sun's Derek Van Diest reports.
Analysis: Luke Gazdic has one goal, one assist, and 38 PIMs through 17 games. He's averaging under six minutes of ice time per contest, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact on the Oilers.

Gazdic Scores Oilers' First Goal Of Season

News: Luke Gazdic opened the scoring in the season opener Tuesday against the Jets, scoring his first NHL goal in his first NHL game, and also picked up five PIM and three hits.
Analysis: Luke Gazdic skated just under five minutes on nine shifts in the game, so he really made the most of his limited ice time, tallying the marker as well as a fighting major. He doesn't project to be much of a source of points, but Gazdic has racked up plenty of PIM in the minors over the last several seasons.

Oilers Claim Gazdic Off Waivers

News: Edmonton has claimed Luke Gazdic off waivers from Dallas, according to the Oilers' website.
Analysis: With all of injuries that the Oilers have suffered so far in camp, they may be searching for anyone who can skate at this point. Luke Gazdic should provide the team with depth at the forward position, but seems unlikely to start the season in Edmonton.

Stars Re-Sign Gazdic

News: Luke Gazdic signed a two-way deal with the Stars on Monday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The former sixth-round pick has spent his entire career in the Stars' system, but it's unlikely that Luke Gazdic will see more than occasional work in Dallas this season.
