  • Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Tallies in Monday's loss

  • Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Nets shorthanded tally

    Yamamoto scored a shorthanded goal in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

It's just the third goal of the season for Yamamoto and his first since Dec. 15. The 24-year-old winger has struggled in an injury-plagued season, but his production could increase if he continues to play on the Oilers' top line alongside Connor McDavid.

  • Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Hands out assist in win

    Yamamoto notched an assist in Friday's 7-2 win over the Kraken.

    Yamamoto made a small contribution on offense with a secondary helper on Darnell Nurse's first-period tally. This was Yamamoto's second straight game with an assist, but it's also just the second time all season he's gotten on the scoresheet in consecutive contests. The struggling winger has two tallies, seven helpers, 31 shots on net, 42 hits and a plus-6 rating through 25 outings. He'll continue to log middle-six minutes, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect a huge uptick in offense any time soon.

  • Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Earns helper on milestone marker

The 24-year-old right winger previously earned two assists against the Coyotes on Dec. 7, a span of nine games. Yamamoto, who opened Tuesday on the second line, added one shot, one hit, one block and a plus-1 rating in 15:33 of ice time.

  • Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Scores second goal

    Yamamoto scored a goal on two shots and added four PIM in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over the Oilers.

    Yamamoto's goal put the Oilers up 3-1 in the third period, but the lead didn't last. Both of his goals this season have come in the last week, and he has four points in six outings since returning from an upper-body injury that cost him 11 games. The winger has two goals, five helpers, 24 shots on net, 34 hits, eight PIM and a plus-6 rating through 19 appearances while frequently seeing middle-six minutes.

  • Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Gets first goal of 2022-23

    Yamamoto found the back of the net in a 5-2 victory over the Wild on Friday.

    Yamamoto's goal at 12:54 of the second period was the game-winner. It was also his first marker and sixth point in 16 contests this season. Perhaps just as important for Yamamoto as the goal itself is the fact that he fired four shots Friday after recording just 17 in his first 15 contests. The 24-year-old will need to start tallying shots like he did Friday if he wants to pick up his goal-scoring pace.
