Striking Oil

The Edmonton Oilers acquire Ales Kotalik from the Buffalo Sabres for a 2nd round draft pick.

Fantasy Outlook: The Oilers continue to search for experienced depth and a winger that can mesh with Ales Hemsky.

Kotalik will fit well into Edmonton's fast paced brand of hockey. He has great speed and a rocket shot. A skilled winger, Kotalik is a streaky player and leaves fantasy owners frustrated over his inconsistent output.

Keep an eye on this Kotalik. If he is able to fit in on the top line in Edmonton, he may be able to put up more consistent numbers. Current owners should not expect too much right away. Be patient to see which line he ends up on and if he can develop chemistry with his new linemates.

  1. 1st Game Update: Kotalik played with Hemsky and they seemed to have some early chemistry, creating chances but did not score.
