Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers have acquired Andreas Athanasiou and Ryan Kuffner from the Red Wings for Sam Gagner, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 second-round pick.

Athanasiou has had a disappointing 2019-20 season after his 30-goal breakout campaign a year ago. The 25-year-old has just ten goals and 24 assists in 46 games this season, but don’t be surprised if the change of scenery reignites his production. After spending most of the season on the wing of Valtteri Filppula, Athanasiou will now almost certainly get a shot at playing alongside Connor McDavid. He is set to become a restricted free agent on July 1st.

The Red Wings have placed Andreas Athanasiou (undisclosed) on IR.

Athanasiou has missed the first two games of the regular season and was moved to IR, retroactively to September 20th, which means he can be activated whenever he is healthy. Athanasiou practiced on Friday, which suggests that he shouldn’t be out too long, so monitor his status throughout the week.

Athanasiou (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups; will miss his second straight game.

Athanasiou was a question mark heading into the weekend after missing practice earlier in the week and will miss his second straight game on Sunday. Athanasiou was able to skate on Friday, which suggests he won’t be sidelined long-term, so keep an eye on his status heading into Tuesday’s game vs. the Ducks.
