Oliver Ekman-Larsson News
Ekman-Larsson (undisclosed) will be in the Coyotes lineup on Monday.
Ekman-Larsson left Saturday’s game in New Jersey early, but is fine and will play tonight in Philadelphia. O.E.L was hurt after absorbing a high-hit but there are no lingering effects. The 26-year-old has recorded six points (1G / 5A) in 11 games this season.
Ekman-Larsson (knee) will be in the Coyotes’ lineup for the season opener.
Ekman-Larsson was banged up during training camp, but he is ready to go for first game of the season. Ekman-Larsson is coming off of a rough season by his standards, but remains one of the top-15 fantasy defensemen around.
Coyotes are “very hopeful” that Ekman-Larsson will be in the lineup for the season opener.
Ekman-Larsson missed time in training camp due to a knee injury, but was a full participant in Sunday’s practice and head coach Rick Tocchet said he’s hopeful that his star defenseman will be in the lineup on Thursday. Ekman-Larsson is coming off of the worst seasons of his career and that’s saying a lot considering he still managed to rack up 12 goals and 27 assists (39 points). O.E.L is one of the few locks for double-digit goals and 20-plus assists on the blueline.
Ekman-Larsson (knee) could resume skating as soon as Thursday.
Ekman-Larsson exited Sunday’s preseason game with a knee injury, but head coach Rick Tocchet said his star defenseman could be back on the ice tomorrow. This is huge news for the Coyotes, who could ill-afford to lose Edman-Larson with Jakob Chychrun already out for an extended period of time. O.E.L. doesn’t appear to be in any danger of missing the regular season opener.
Ekman-Larsson (personal) will not play for the rest of the season.
Ekman-Larsson (upper-body) is questionable for Thursday.

Ekman-Larsson (upper-body) will return to the Coyotes lineup on Tuesday.
Ekman-Larsson has missed the last six games with an upper-body injury, but will return tonight vs. the Oilers. Ekman-Larsson has 19 goals and 30 assists (49 points) in 66 games this season and should immediately be activated on all fantasy formats. His two goals and three assists in three games vs. Edmonton this season also suggest that he is worth the price in daily leagues as well.
Ekman-Larsson (upper-body) will not play on Friday.
Ekman-Larsson will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury and is still “a few days away from playing” according to head coach Dave Tippet. This is a huge blow to the Coyotes blueline and a team that will look to snap a 10-game road losing streak.
