Larsson (lower-body) will not be in the lineup on Wednesday.
Larsson will miss Wednesday’s game with a lower-body injury, which means that Eric Gryba will draw back into the lineup. Larsson is listed as day-to-day, so consider him as questionable for Friday’s game in Washington.
The Oilers have acquired Adam Larsson from the Devils for Taylor Hall.
Larsson, 23, was the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, but has yet to develop into the premiere two-way defenseman that he was expected to be. However, at just 23-years-old he still has a lot of years to become the top-pairing defenseman that the Oilers are hoping they just acquired. He had 18 points (3G / 15A) in 82 games with the Devils last season.
Larsson (mumps) is on the ice for the morning skate; but not expected to dress.
Larsson has missed the last seven games with the mumps virus, but he is on the ice this morning. Despite taking part in the morning skate, Larsson is skating on the fourth pair so he is not expected to be in the lineup tonight vs. the Senators.
The diagnostic process takes so long -- five to seven days, but Larsson is still recovering and is in isolation. Larsson becomes the 10th player on a growing list of players who have been diagnosed with mumps. Larsson has been out since December 2nd.
Jon Merrill will re-enter the lineup for Larsson who is battling the flu. Larsson struggled to get into the lineup in the early part of the season, but has played well as of late and has four points (1G / 3A) and a minus-2 rating in 17 games this season. He is day-to-day.
