Coyotes' Ekman-Larson Tallies Goal, Assist Friday

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored his 14th goal of the season and assisted on another but the Coyotes lost 3-2 in a shootout against the Oilers on Friday.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson put the Coyotes on the board in the second period and now has three points in his last four games. The defenseman now has 43 points in 76 games this season and has been a nice addition to fantasy lineups this year.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson picked up an assist on the Coyotes' lone goal Saturday in a loss to the Wild. He was minus-2 on the night.
Analysis: It was a power play goal giving OEL 21 points with the man advantage this season. With 41 points thus far, he continues to add to a career-high with a handful of games left.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Scores Again

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored his 13th goal of the year on a first-period power play in Monday's overtime loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: The game's opening tally, unfortunately for the young defender, wouldn't hold up as the Rangers staged a pair of comebacks. Oliver Ekman-Larsson took a hard hit in the third period, and though he remained in the game, it looked like he was a step slower than usual the rest of the way. We won't call him injured, but it bears monitoring.

Ekman-Larsson Scores In Phoenix's Loss

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson earned first-star honors Saturday with a highlight-reel power-play goal against Boston. He delivered seven hits in the game, which ended in a 4-2 victory for the Bruins.
Analysis: We hope you grabbed the 22-year-old blueliner in your draft. We also hope you can hold him for years to come, as he looks like a future star.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Picks Up Assist In Win

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson assisted on Radim Vrbata's power-play goal Thursday in a win over Florida. He was minus-1 with two shots and three hits on the night.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson continues an excellent season in which he will almost certainly cross the 40-point barrier for the first time in his career. It's easy to forget that he's just 22 years old when he already skates nearly 26 minutes per game while putting up points both at even strength and on the power play (18 points on the man advantage). He's a stud, plain and simple.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Picks Up Assist In Win

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson had an assist on a power-play goal Monday in a 4-3 win over the Kings. He added two shots and three hits.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson has been very good since the Olympic break picking up eight points in 11 games. Of his 37 points on the season, 17 have come on the power play, adding significant value in leagues that count man-advantage points.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Picks Up Assist In Win

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson picked up an assist on the Coyotes' lone goal Thursday in a 2-1 loss to the Bruins. He had one shot and two hits in 29:00 of ice time.
Analysis: He has points in consecutive games and seems to be raising his level of play as the 'Yotes try to reach the playoffs. Roll him with confidence.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Scores In Win

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored his eleventh goal of the season and was plus-1 Tuesday in a win over the Panthers. He added two shots, two blocks, and three hits on the night.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson ranks among the top 20 defensemen this year with 35 points and he has six points in eight games since the leagues resumed play after the Olympic break. He carries a huge load for the Coyotes, playing nearly 26 minutes a night (seventh in the NHL), and should be in your lineup every day.

Ekman-Larsson Notches Two Points For Phoenix

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Though he'd gone without a point over his last two games, OEL still has five points in five contests since the Olympic break. He's also collected eight PIM in that span, and if your league counts hits, you can't complain about the 10 of those he's collected, too.

OEL Active In Coyotes Loss

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson notched two assists in Phoenix's 4-2 loss to Colorado on Friday, giving him three points in two games since the Olympic break.
Analysis: OEL was banished from playing at times during the Olympic tournament but will have no such issues in Phoenix as one of the team's top offensive defenders. He has been streaky at times this season, but he will find his name on the scoresheet for Phoenix. Feel free to use him more than Sweden coach Par Marts did in Sochi.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Scores In Loss

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson picked up his ninth goal of the season Thursday in a loss to the Jets. He put five shots on net and had four PIM.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson was used surprisingly little by the Swedish team at the Olympics, but will look to have a strong finish to the season for the Coyotes. He played over 29 minutes Thursday and should continue to see all the ice time he can handle down the stretch.

Coyotes' OEL Picks Up Two Assists As Swedes Win

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson notched two assists for the Swedish team in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Czech Republic in the Olympic opener for the two squads.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson was credited with finding Erik Karlsson and Patrick Berglund on the two scores, allowing the Swedes to jump to an early lead. The defensive pairing of OEL and Karlsson offers as much firepower as any in the tournament and should play a pivotal role in the team's fortunes.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Picks Up Assist In Win

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson picked up an assist and was plus-1 Saturday in a win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 29 points on the season with 13 of those points coming on the power play.

Ekman-Larsson's Two Goals Lead Coyotes To Win

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored the first two goals of Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Kings, snapping a five-game point drought.
Analysis: Since a super-hot start to the year that had OEL's fantasy owners thinking they might have the next Erik Karlsson on their hands, things haven't gone nearly so well for the 22-year-old blueliner. Even with Tuesday's fine effort, he has just 17 points in his last 37 games -- a rate of production that falls far short of Oliver Ekman-Larsson's full potential.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Seeing Lots Of Ice Time

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson played more than 32 minutes Wednesday in a loss to Calgary. He did not register a point, was minus-1, took one shot and blocked one as well.
Analysis: Considering that the game did not require overtime this is a wild amount of ice time; more than five minutes more than his next closest teammate. The thing to note here is that OEL is going to have a long season, including playing in the Olympics for Sweden, and should be monitored for signs of fatigue or breaking down. If this becomes a regular thing, owners in redraft leagues might look to see what he could bring on the trade market.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Extends Point Streak

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson picked up an assist on Antoine Vermette's power-play goal Thursday against Vancouver. It was his fourth straight game with a point.
Analysis: OEL played more than 28 minutes in this one and continues to put his mid-December-through-early-January slump in the rear-view mirror.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Scores Again Tuesday

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored the Coyotes' lone goal on the power play Tuesday against St. Louis.
Analysis: After going nearly two months without putting one in the net, OEL has scored in two straight games. He added six shots in more than 29 minutes of ice time against the Blues and remains the Coyotes' top defenseman.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Scores Monday

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson had the Coyotes' lone goal in a 5-1 loss to Winnipeg on Monday.
Analysis: It was OEL's first goal in nearly two months (since November 12) and just his fifth of the season.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson had a strong game Saturday in a 5-3 loss to the Ducks picking up an assist and going plus-2. He took one shot and blocked three.
Analysis: OEL has slowed down since mid-December after a hot start to the season - this was just his second point in his last 11 games. After missing two games with injury this week the rest may have helped him get a bit of jump back in his game. He remains a top defenseman and fantasy option.

Analysis: OEL said he felt good during the morning session and believes he won't be sidelined with the injury for much longer. Though he'll be out of the lineup for Tuesday's game, it's possible he could be back before the week concludes.

Analysis: Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett said that he's hoping to have Oliver Ekman-Larsson back before the end of the week. OEL can be ruled out for Tuesday but should be viewed as questionable for Thursday's tilt against the Wild.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Ruled Out Saturday

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson (upper body) won't play Saturday vs. the Flyers, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: The Coyotes didn't hold a morning skate Saturday, but coach Dave Tippett apparently received enough information regarding Oliver Ekman-Larsson's injury to hold him out for the night. The Coyotes are still listing OEL as day-to-day, making him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Flames.

Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson Questionable

News: Oliver Ekman-Larsson (upper body) is "questionable" for Saturday's game against the Flyers, according to head coach Dave Tippett.
Analysis: Oliver Ekman-Larsson was run into the boards from behind in Thursday's game and left without returning. The Coyotes have suggested that the injury is not serious, but OEL may still be a bit sore. He did not take part in Friday's practice.
