Hurricanes' William Lagesson: Placed on waivers
Carolina waived Lagesson on Sunday, per CapFriendly.
Lagesson dressed in 33 combined games between Edmonton and Montreal last season. If the 26-year-old clears waivers, he'll begin the year with AHL Chicago, but he could receive a promotion as an injury replacement at some point.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' William Lagesson: Grabs two-way deal
Lagesson secured a one-year, two-way contract with Carolina on Monday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Lagesson played in 33 games for the Oilers and Canadiens last season in which he garnered five assists, though he has yet to score his first NHL goal. Given the Canes' depth on the blue line, including fellow youngsters Ethan Bear (leg) and Dylan Coghlan, the 26-year-old Lagesson will be hard-pressed to secure a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night and figures to spend significant time in the minors this year....

Canadiens' William Lagesson: Garners point in win
Lagesson had an assist, one shot on net and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.
Lagesson, a trade deadline acquisition from Edmonton, registered his first point since joining Montreal. He's appeared in just three games in a Canadiens' jersey.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' William Lagesson: Brought in at deadline
Lagesson was acquired by the Canadiens from the Oilers, along with a second-round pick and a seventh-round pick, Monday in exchange for Brett Kulak, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Lagesson will have about six weeks to impress team brass in Montreal if he wants to secure a new contract this offseason. In 30 games with the Oilers this year, the 26-year-old blueliner recorded just four helpers, 32 shots and 39 hits, though he has logged a meager 12:20 of ice time per night. With his new club, Lagesson should see an uptick in ice time but figures to remain a low-end fantasy target.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Moves into seventh defenseman role
Lagesson has been a healthy scratch for the last two games.
The Oilers are starting to get some injured players back -- Tyson Barrie returned recently and Kris Russell (undisclosed) is targeting a return Thursday versus the Sabres. That leaves Lagesson on the outside of the lineup looking in, though he'll stay with the big club while Philip Broberg heads back to AHL Bakersfield. Lagesson only has four assists, 39 hits, 32 shots on net and 16 blocked shots in 30 appearances this season, so he's not likely to be of interest in most fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Supplies helper in loss
Lagesson notched an assist in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Wild.
Lagesson had gone eight games without a point entering Sunday, but he snapped the drought on a Tyler Benson goal in the second period. The 25-year-old Lagesson has helped to cover the Oilers' absence of Duncan Keith (upper body) in recent contests. For the season, Lagesson's at four helpers, 22 shots on net, 26 hits, 15 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 22 appearances -- he's unlikely to score enough to draw much fantasy interest....

Oilers' William Lagesson: Recalled Monday
Lagesson was promoted to the NHL on Monday.
Lagesson will move up to the active roster as a replacement for Kris Russell (undisclosed) who was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. The 25-year-old Lagesson figures to play in the team's upcoming back-to-back but shouldn't see much more than the 11:32 of ice time he is averaging this year. As such, Lagesson will be hard-pressed to produce offensively.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Dropped from active roster
Lagesson was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday.
Lagesson had two assists in his last six outings with the Oilers, but he'll head back to the Condors to pick up playing time during the All-Star break. The Swede is unlikely to play in more than a third-pairing role if he returns to the Oilers later in the season.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Provides helper in big win
Lagesson posted an assist, two shots on net and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Canadiens.
Lagesson helped out on the first of Zach Hyman's two goals in the contest. This was just the third assist in 12 games for Lagesson, though he established a new career high in points. The Swede has added 15 shots on net, 12 hits, seven blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in limited minute this season. He'll likely compete with Slater Koekkoek for playing time as long as Lagesson remains on the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Expected to play
Lagesson is expected to be promoted from the taxi squad to the active roster and play Saturday versus Montreal, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
All signs point to Lagesson slotting into a bottom-pairing role for Saturday's contest. The 25-year-old defender has tallied two assists through 11 top-level appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Dropped to taxi squad
Lagesson was demoted to the taxi squad Friday.
Lagesson has played in 11 games for the Oilers this season in which he recorded two assists, 13 shots and 11 hits despite averaging just 11:23 of ice time. The blueliner will likely be bumped back up to the active roster before the club's three-game road trip in the event the club needs some reinforcements.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Promoted to active roster
Lagesson was added to the active roster Thursday, Tom Gazzola of TSN.ca reports.
Lagesson has averaged 11:31 of ice time and tallied two assists over 10 NHL appearances this season. The 25-year-old recorded an assist in his last NHL outing against Ottawa on Jan. 15. Per Gazzola, the Swedish defenseman is likely to make his 11th NHL appearance of the season against Nashville on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Hits waivers
Lagesson was placed on waivers Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
This move suggests Kris Russell (upper body) could be coming off long-term injured reserve ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Panthers. If Lagesson, who's picked up two helpers through 10 NHL appearances this season, passes through waivers unclaimed, look for him to head to the taxi squad.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Plucks apple in loss
Lagesson posted an assist and a minus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Senators.
Lagesson saw just 7:29 of ice time, as the Oilers leaned heavily on their top-four blueliners in the contest. The 25-year-old defenseman has earned two assists with 11 shots on net and 11 hits in 10 games this year. He needed 19 games to pick up two helpers last season, but he's still not established as a full-time NHLer. Kris Russell (upper body) and Slater Koekkoek (COVID-19 protocols) are nearing returns, which would likely see Lagesson move back to AHL Bakersfield or the taxi squad soon.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Gets on scoresheet with assist
Lagesson managed an assist in Friday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Devils.
Lagesson helped out on a Devin Shore goal in the third period. The Oilers had seven defensemen in the lineup Friday, and Lagesson was the odd man out, seeing just 2:45 of ice time. Even in more conventional usage, the Swede is unlikely to play above the third pairing. His assist was his first point in eight games this year, and he's added 11 shots on eight hits in a limited role.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Exits COVID-19 protocols
Lagesson cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday, per Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca.
Lagesson hasn't recorded an NHL point since February of last season. The 25-year-old has only seven appearances under his belt this season due to injury and illness-related absences.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Lands in COVID-19 protocols
Lagesson was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.
Lagesson's absence will stretch an Edmonton blue line that is also missing Darnell Nurse (COVID-19 protocols) and Duncan Keith (COVID-19 protocols). If none of the defensemen can return in time to face Calgary on Dec. 27, the Oilers will need to promote several players from the minors to fill out the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' William Lagesson: Added NHL roster
The Oilers recalled Lagesson from AHL Bakersfield on Friday.
Lagesson could get prominent minutes for Edmonton while Darnell Nurse (undisclosed) and Slater Koekkoek (lower body) are on injured reserve. The 27-year-old recorded a pair of assists in 19 games last season but has yet to play in the NHL this season.... See More ... See Less
