Observations

June 2019 – On May 23rd the Oilers announced that they had signed Nygård to a one-year entry-level contract. The Swedish winger has just completed his seventh season in the SHL where he finished second in the league in goals with 21, and tallying a total of 35 points in 52 games. The 26-year-old likely won’t be a big point producer in the NHL but he could be a contributor in a bottom-six role. It should be safe to say that Nygård is a Tobias Rieder replacement for the Oilers. Rieder’s season in Edmonton was a disappointment to say the least as he recorded just 11 assists and no goals in 67 games. In other words, these wouldn’t exactly be big boots to fill for Nygård. With the Oilers’ need for speed and lack of depth on the wings, the Swedish forward should be given every chance to succeed, plus he has been effective on the PK. If his goal-scoring abilities translate even a little bit to the NHL then he could even see time in the top six which bodes well for his fantasy value. Jameson Ewasiuk
