Top Jesse Puljujarvi News

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Adds insurance tally

    Puljujarvi scored a goal in Friday's 7-1 win over the Sharks.

    Puljujarvi ended a six-game point drought with the tally. The 24-year-old continues to lack consistency, and his goal Friday wasn't exactly a key one, extending the Oilers' lead to 6-0 in the third period. He has 10 points, 66 shots on net, 89 hits, 22 PIM and a minus-12 rating through 44 contests, and he's done little to make a case for a top-six role. Fantasy managers can likely find better production on the waiver wire.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Finds twine in Friday's win

    Puljujarvi scored a goal on five shots, logged two hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 7-2 win over the Kraken.

    Puljujarvi's goal made it 4-0 at 9:58 of the first period. Even with the big lead, the winger didn't see much additional ice time, playing just 13:54 in the contest. He has three points over his last five games and is now at three tallies, six helpers, 56 shots on net, 76 hits and a minus-10 rating through 37 outings overall.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Slides helper in win

    Puljujarvi registered an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Stars.

    Puljujarvi has a goal and an assist in his last two games after opening December with nine pointless outings. The 24-year-old got some top-six looks as part of an ever-changing lineup Wednesday, but he finished the game with 12:47 of ice time. He's still a bottom-six option for the Oilers due to a lack of consistency. He's at eight points, 48 shots, 70 hits and a minus-10 rating in 34 contests.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Scores with no finished checks

    Puljujarvi produced a goal on two shots during a 4-3 overtime loss to the host Predators on Monday.

    Puljujarvi, who entered Monday leading the Oilers with 69 hits, provided some unexpected offense in the first period, tying the game at 1-1 with a wrist shot from the right face-off circle. The 24-year-old right winger beat goalie Juuse Saros five-hole for his first goal in 26 appearances. Puljujarvi failed to record a finished check during 10:57 of ice time Monday.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Posts helper Wednesday

    Puljujarvi notched an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Blackhawks.

    Puljujarvi had the puck down low and fed Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in the slot for the Oilers' second goal. There's been improvement in Puljujarvi's game lately -- he has four assists in his last eight outings, but he's still at just six points, a minus-10 rating, 34 shots on net and 50 hits through 23 contests overall. He'll get a chance to play a bit more with the Oilers missing a handful of wingers, but he hasn't done much to suggest he should keep a top-six job after the team gets healthier.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Slings assist in win

    Puljujarvi notched an assist and two hits in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

    Through 12 outings in November, Puljujarvi has recorded four assists and a minus-5 rating. He's still gone 14 games without a goal, and that's not a good look when he's been seeing some power-play time and even-strength usage on the top line. The 24-year-old winger is at five points, 30 shots, 48 hits and a minus-10 rating in 21 contests overall.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Back in scoring column

    Puljujarvi notched an assist and two hits in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Devils.

    Puljujarvi hasn't found much success recently with just one point over the prior six games, though he saw 17:00 of ice time Monday with the Oilers opting for a seven-defensemen lineup. The 24-year-old Puljujarvi has three assists in his last eight games, but he hasn't scored since Oct. 26. Four points in 19 contests isn't a good look for the fourth overall pick from 2016 -- fantasy managers can likely find better scoring options on the waiver wire.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Helps out on empty-netter

    Puljujarvi notched an assist and two hits in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Panthers.

    Puljujarvi has seen an increased role recently -- he's been promoted to the top line at even strength with Evander Kane (wrist) and Kailer Yamamoto (undisclosed) out. It's a huge opportunity for Puljujarvi, who hasn't scored enough to even be considered streaky this season. He has a goal, two assists, 24 shots on net, 35 hits, seven PIM and a minus-6 rating. The Oilers' wing depth won't always be this thin, so the 24-year-old needs to make a statement soon if he wants to remain in a prime scoring spot later in the year.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Gets on scoresheet Saturday

    Puljujarvi notched an assist and four hits in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Stars.

    Puljujarvi has done almost nothing on offense this year -- his only other point was a goal Oct. 26 versus the Blues. The winger has been confined to a bottom-six role, though he saw the occasional shift in the top six Saturday as head coach Jay Woodcroft tries to spark either Puljujarvi or Kailer Yamamoto. In addition to his two points, Puljujarvi has 16 shots on net, seven PIM, 28 hits and a minus-6 rating in 12 appearances.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Opens Wednesday's scoring

    Puljujarvi secured his first point this season during the 3-1 victory over the Blues on Wednesday.

    Puljujarvi, who entered Wednesday's game with zero goals and assists and only eight shots in six starts, was not producing. The 2016 fourth-overall draft pick registered a career-best 36 points last season and was projected by team brass to advance into a top-six role by now. It hasn't happened. Perhaps Wednesday's deflected tally will spark the 24-year-old right winger to earn more than the 12 minutes, 16 seconds of ice time he earned against the Blues.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Skating on first line

    Puljujarvi (shoulder) skated with Zach Hyman and Leon Draisaitl on the top line during Thursday's "first session" practice, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

    Puljujarvi has evidently recovered from the shoulder injury he was dealing with following Edmonton's 2021-22 playoff run. The 24-year-old winger tallied 14 goals and 36 points through 65 regular-season contests last year.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Agrees to one-year deal

    Puljujarvi (shoulder) penned a one-year, $3 million contract with Edmonton on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Puljujarvi and the Oilers were headed toward an arbitration hearing Friday but appear to have found a middle ground on a new contract. Last season, the 24-year-old winger surpassed the 30-point threshold for the first time in his career, no doubt in part to spending chunks of the season on Edmonton's top line with Connor McDavid. While Puljujarvi is far from a lock for that role heading into the 2022-23 campaign, he should be in the mix for a top-six role and could surpass the career mark of 36 points he set last year.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Dealing with shoulder problem

    Puljujarvi is facing a 4-6 week recovery period due to a shoulder injury, general manager Ken Holland told reporters Wednesday, per Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com.

    Based on Puljujarvi's recovery timeline, he shouldn't be expected to miss any time next season and figures to be good to go for training camp. The youngster will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the team will need to re-sign him, though he is unlikely to be the top priority for a club that also has to make a decision on the future of Evander Kane.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Buries goal in win

    Puljujarvi scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Flames in Game 5.

    Puljujarvi scored on a pass from Zach Hyman at 9:56 of the second period. Prior to Thursday, Puljujarvi had not registered a point in his last eight outings. The 24-year-old winger has dropped into a bottom-six role for much of the playoffs with just three points, 19 shots on net, 19 hits, 10 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 12 appearances.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Chips in with helper

    Puljujarvi notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 8-2 win over the Kings in Game 3.

    Puljujarvi helped out on the second of Evander Kane's three goals in the contest. With a goal and an assist in the last two games, Puljujarvi is starting to get comfortable with the pace of playoff hockey, albeit in a limited role. He should continue to feature in the top six at even strength, which makes him a decent upside pick for fantasy managers.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Tallies in Game 2 win

    Puljujarvi scored a goal on three shots, added two hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Kings in Game 2.

    Puljujarvi netted an insurance tally at 3:23 of the third period. The 23-year-old winger has now picked up six points in four postseason contests in his career. This was his first goal and point of the 2022 playoffs. While he's been listed on the top line, Puljujarvi may continue to see sheltered minutes and a lack of power-play time.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Earns assist in return

    Puljujarvi (illness) recorded an assist in 13:27 of ice time in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sharks.

    Puljujarvi missed three games due to an illness, and he was eased back into the lineup. The 23-year-old had the secondary assist on Philip Broberg's first career goal, which tied the game at 4-4 in the third period. Puljujarvi is up to 14 tallies, 22 helpers, 158 shots on net, 81 hits and a plus-22 rating through 64 contests.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Returning Thursday

    Puljujarvi (illness) is set to return Thursday against San Jose, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

    The 23-year-old took line rushes at morning skate on the top line with Connor McDavid and Evander Kane, further cementing his return to the lineup after a three-game absence. Puljujarvi will look to further build on his career-high 35 points in the final two games of the regular season.

  • Oilers' Jesse Puljujarvi: Should return against Sharks

    Puljujarvi (illness) is expected to be ready to return to action Thursday against San Jose, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Puljujarvi will miss a third straight contest Tuesday versus Pittsburgh due to an illness, but he's expected to be ready to rejoin the lineup when the Oilers return home for Thursday's matchup with the Sharks. He's collected 14 goals and 35 points through 63 games this season.
