  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Gets on scoresheet with assist

    Desharnais registered an assist, three hits and four blocked shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Canucks in Game 5.

    The helper was Desharnais' first point since a two-assist game versus the Ducks on March 30. The 27-year-old defenseman has added 27 hits, 26 blocks, three shots on net and a minus-4 rating over 10 playoff appearances. He continues to play in a bottom-four role as a physical presence, so his lack of production typically won't have an impact on fantasy competitions.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Contributes two helpers Saturday

    Desharnais notched two assists, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

    Desharnais snapped a 17-game point drought with his helper on a Mattias Ekholm goal in the first period. Just under a period later, Desharnais grabbed another assist on Warren Foegele's tally. With 11 points through 68 contests this season, Desharnais is far from a scoring threat. He's added 113 hits, 103 blocked shots, 52 PIM and a plus-6 rating to bring some physicality to the Oilers' bottom four.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Ready to play Tuesday

    Desharnais (undisclosed) told reporters he would be in the lineup against Montreal on Tuesday, stating "I'm good. I'm ready to go," per Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic.

    Desharnais is currently stuck in a 13-game drought during which he recorded a mere seven shots on net. While the blueliner won't offer much for offense, he does rack up plenty of hits and blocked shots, posting 27 and 21, respectively, during his scoring slump. With Desharnais back in action, Troy Stecher figures to remain a healthy scratch.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Game-time call Tuesday

    Desharnais (undisclosed) figures to be a game-time decision versus Montreal on Tuesday after head coach Kris Knoblauch told reporters, "He looked good. Said he felt good. We will talk to the trainers and see," per Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton.

    Desharnais has appeared in 63 games this season for Edmonton, so his spot in the lineup should be relatively secure. Still, the team likely won't want deadline-addition Troy Stecher sitting around too long. If Desharnais can't play Tuesday, those bottom-four minutes almost certainly will go to Stecher.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Undergoing injury evaluation

    Desharnais will be evaluated for an undisclosed injury sustained Saturday versus the Avalanche, Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton reports.

    Desharnais was used sparingly in the third period but didn't retreat to the locker room for treatment. He hasn't gotten on the scoresheet in 13 contests. If Desharnais misses time, Troy Stecher would step into a bottom-four role.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Registers assist in win

    Desharnais notched an assist and three hits in Monday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Desharnais has racked up three assists, 15 blocked shots, 14 hits and 10 PIM over seven outings in February. The physicality is no surprise, but the 27-year-old defenseman is starting to come around on offense a bit as well, giving him viability in deeper fantasy formats. For the season, he's produced nine points, 77 hits, 75 blocked shots and 37 PIM over 50 appearances in a third-pairing role with virtually no power-play time.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Posts helper in win

    Desharnais logged an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Red Wings.

    Desharnais has three helpers over his last eight contests. The 27-year-old saw an increase in ice time around the All-Star break, but his playing time is likely to fluctuate based on the game situation as long as he remains listed on the third pairing. The blueliner has eight points, 64 hits, 68 blocked shots, 30 shots on net and 29 PIM through 47 appearances.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Collects assist in loss

    Desharnais notched a shorthanded assist and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Desharnais denied a Vegas zone entry in the first period, springing Leon Draisaitl to set up Connor McDavid on the Oilers' lone goal. With two helpers over his last five contests, Desharnais is showing a little life on offense. The 27-year-old has a steady role on the third pairing, especially when the Oilers can't afford to have a seventh defenseman on the roster. Desharnais is up to seven points, 29 shots on net, 27 PIM, 54 hits, 63 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 44 appearances.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Pockets helper

    Desharnais notched an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Flames.

    Desharnais doesn't contribute offense often -- his two assists over eight games in January already make this his second-best month of the campaign. The 27-year-old defenseman remains in a third-pairing role to provide physicality. He has six points, 49 hits, 53 blocked shots, 27 PIM, 22 shots on net and a plus-2 rating over 40 appearances.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Ends 14-game slump

    Desharnais posted an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Desharnais went 14 games without a point before drawing the secondary helper on Connor McDavid's first-period tally Tuesday. Playing in a third-pairing role has done little for Desharnais' limited offense -- he has just five points over 33 contests. The 27-year-old blueliner has added 43 hits, 47 blocked shots and 27 PIM while averaging 14:22 of ice time per game, providing some grit on the back end. Given the Oilers' cap situation and the lack of success from defensemen they've called up on occasion, Desharnais' spot in the lineup should be considered secure.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Not generating offense

    Desharnais has gone 12 games without a point.

    Desharnais' drought was extended in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Sharks. While he's done next to nothing on offense, he has 16 hits, 24 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in that span. The 27-year-old has been a fixture on the Oilers' third pairing this season with 30 appearances. He's earned four points, 37 hits, 43 blocked shots, 25 PIM, 13 shots on net and a minus-1 rating in that role, which is right in line with his level of production from last season.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Provides two more helpers

    Desharnais notched two assists and blocked two shots in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Ducks.

    Desharnais has three helpers this season, all of which have come in the last two games. He assisted on goals by Zach Hyman and James Hamblin in this contest. Desharnais is up to four points with 21 hits, 19 blocks, 23 PIM, 11 shots on net and a minus-3 rating over 18 appearances. The 27-year-old remains in a third-pairing role, so his fantasy value is low in most formats.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Snags assist in win

    Desharnais posted an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-0 win over the Capitals.

    Desharnais began November with 10 scoreless games before helping out on an Evander Kane tally in the first period Friday. Desharnais has seen limited usage in a bottom-four role, though he has been in the lineup with regularity. The 27-year-old blueliner has two points, 11 shots on net, 17 blocked shots, 20 hits, 23 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 17 appearances.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Scores goal in win

    Desharnais scored a goal in Sunday's 5-2 victory over Calgary.

    Desharnais scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's outdoor contest. The 27-year-old blueliner's lack of offensive output shouldn't come as a surprise considering he has registered a mere two shots over six outings this year. In 36 contests last season, the he managed just five assists, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on him for offense.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Posts two helpers

    Desharnais notched two assists in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Kings in Game 6.

    Desharnais had a hand in both of Klim Kostin's tallies in the contest. The pair of helpers snapped Desharnais' 17-game point drought. The young defenseman added two shots on net, 10 blocked shots, eight hits, four PIM and a minus-3 rating in six playoff contests. He appears to have a role regardless of whether the Oilers use six or seven blueliners, but the 26-year-old isn't one to produce much offense.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Bags apple Thursday

    Desharnais registered a shorthanded assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

    Desharnais snapped an 11-game point drought with his helper on a Mattias Janmark tally in the first period. The 26-year-old Desharnais has five assists, eight shots on goal, 30 hits, 28 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 24 outings at the NHL level. He's been favored over Philip Broberg when the Oilers use a traditional lineup, though there's room for both of them while Ryan McLeod (upper body) and Zach Hyman (undisclosed) are out.

  • Oilers' Vincent Desharnais: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    Desharnais (illness) was assigned to AHL Bakersfield on Friday.

    Desharnais missed Wednesday's game versus Detroit due to an illness, but his demotion to the minors suggests he's no longer under the weather. The 26-year-old defender has collected four helpers through 12 top-level appearances this season. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back with the big club in the near future.

Desharnais will try to return for Friday's game versus the Rangers.
