  • Flames' Jordan Oesterle: Back in NHL

    Oesterle was called up by the Flames on Wednesday.

    Oesterle has eight assists in 12 games with AHL Calgary in 2023-24. He's also appeared in four contests with the Flames, recording no points, a minus-2 rating, four shots, one hit and eight blocks in that span.

  • Flames' Jordan Oesterle: Placed on waivers Thursday

    The Flames placed Oesterle on waivers Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Oesterle has been a healthy scratch in six of the Flames' first 10 games, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. Oesterle has yet to pick up a point in four games this season. He does, however, have eight blocked shots and four shots on goal while averaging 14:04 of ice time.

  • Flames' Jordan Oesterle: Inks one-year deal with Flames

    Oesterle agreed to a one-year, $925,000 contract with Calgary on Sunday.

    Oesterle was credited with two goals, nine assists and 68 blocked shots in 52 games with Detroit last season. He is projected to occupy a depth role with the Flames in 2023-24, suiting up as a third-pairing defender when he's called upon to be in the lineup.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Two helpers against Habs

    Oesterle registered a pair of assists to complement a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Canadiens.

    Oesterle has a pair of multi-point games over his last three appearances, but fantasy managers will find it tough to rely on the third-pairing defenseman. The 30-year-old has garnered just 11 points through 49 contests this season, and he's never topped 20 points in a given campaign. Cashing out the balance of a one-year, $1.35 million deal, Oesterle is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Lifted from IR

    Oesterle (undisclosed) was removed from injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Oesterle was out of action for five games, though it's unclear if he was injured the whole time. The 30-year-old could have a path to more regular playing time with Filip Hronek dealt to the Canucks on Wednesday.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Lands on IR

    Oesterle (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

    Oesterle shouldn't be expected to play against Ottawa on Monday and Tuesday. The Red Wings activated Lucas Raymond (lower body) from injured reserve in a corresponding move Monday. Oesterle has five points, 40 shots on goal, 50 blocks and 29 hits in 38 contests this campaign.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Draws helper in win

    Oesterle recorded an assist and two hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Oesterle ended a six-game point drought with his helper on a Joe Veleno goal in the second period. In that span, Oesterle was also a healthy scratch three times, though he seems to maintain the inside edge for playing time over Gustav Lindstrom. Oesterle is up to four points, 31 shots on net, 24 hits, 38 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 31 appearances this season as a third-pairing defenseman.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Deposits third-period tally

    Oesterle scored a goal during a 6-3 loss to the host Sabres on Thursday.

    With the Red Wings trailing 5-2 in the third period, Oesterle scored his first goal in 14 games, fueling another late rally, though this one fell short. The Red Wings on Wednesday came back from a 4-0 road deficit vs. the Penguins to win for the first time in team history. The 30-year-old blueliner recorded his first point in 12 games Thursday since drawing a helper during a loss to the Sabres on Nov. 30. Oesterle added two shots and two blocks in the contest.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Caught in lengthy slump

    Oesterle heads into the holiday break mired in a 10-game point drought, and the defenseman is minus-8 over that span.

    Despite his recent struggles, Oesterle is more experienced than Gustav Lindstrom, which makes him the preferred option to round out the third pair with Olli Maatta. However, with the Wings away from game ice until next Wednesday against the Penguins, this affords more recovery time for Robert Hagg (undisclosed), who could ultimately pose a threat to Oesterle's playing time.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Chips in with assist

    Oesterle produced an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Sabres.

    Over the last three games, Oesterle has picked up his first goal and first assist of the season. The 30-year-old has seen a regular run in the lineup with Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed) unavailable. Oesterle has added 13 hits, 15 blocked shots, 12 shots on goal and a plus-10 rating through 12 appearances as a fill-in on the third pairing.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Scores first goal of season

    Oesterle scored a goal in the Red Wings' 4-3 shootout win against Arizona on Friday.

    Oesterle had no points in nine games in 2022-23 before Friday's contest. He's a depth defenseman who was regularly a healthy scratch early in the season. He has drawn into the lineup in nine of Detroit's last 10 games, but he's been primarily serving on the third pairing and hasn't been getting time on the power play. With that limited role in mind, not much is expected of him offensively.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Remains solid depth option

    Oesterle is looking for his first point this season, but he's plus-7 through eight contests.

    Oesterle is doing a great job of limiting mistakes as a depth option on the blue line. Granted, the Michigan native is averaging 14:17 of ice time -- which marks a four-minute drop compared to last season -- but Oesterle can help in a pinch as he compensates for the absence of Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed).

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Finishes first year with Wings

    Oesterle completed his first campaign with the Red Wings, adding two goals and six assists against a minus-7 rating through 45 games.

    The Michigan native is a journeyman who's grown accustomed to serving in a depth role. Oesterle has another year on his Red Wings contract valued at $1.35 million.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Clutches up in overtime

    Oesterle scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 2-1 overtime win over the Ducks.

    Dylan Larkin won a faceoff back to Oesterle, who buried his first goal of the season at 2:11 of overtime. The 29-year-old defenseman has played in the Red Wings' last four games -- he typically sees significant playing time in the high teens and low 20s when he's in the lineup. Oesterle has five points, 37 shots on net, 23 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 24 contests overall. He doesn't excel in any one area, and his place in the lineup is far from secure, so he's not going to be that helpful in fantasy.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Picks up helper Wednesday

    Oesterle notched an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Back in action after five games as a healthy scratch, Oesterle got on the scoresheet by setting up a Pius Suter goal in the second period. The 29-year-old Oesterle has mustered just four helpers, 30 shots on net and 21 blocked shots through 21 contests this season. He'll likely cede his spot in the lineup to Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed) once the latter is able to shake off his current injury.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Back in action

    Oesterle (coach's decision) returned to the lineup against the Blackhawks on Wednesday, according to

    After missing six straight games, Oesterle's return to the lineup was necessitated by an undisclosed issue for rookie defenseman Gustav Lindstrom. Oesterle played for Chicago in 2017-18, when he posted five goals and 10 assists through 55 games, but he's a spare for the Wings and therefore doesn't possess any fantasy value.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Produces helper Sunday

    Oesterle logged an assist in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Ducks.

    The assist snapped Oesterle's nine-game point drought. The 29-year-old had been a healthy scratch in the last two games, but he entered the lineup for Danny DeKeyser in the second half of the Red Wings' back-to-back. Oesterle is up to three helpers, 28 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in 19 appearances overall.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Oesterle (COVID-19 protocols) is out of the league's protocols, the Wings announced Thursday.

    Considering Oesterle has just two points in 16 appearances for Detroit this season, his return to the lineup is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players. The 29-year-old Michigan native will likely have to watch from the press box from time to time as a healthy scratch.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Lands in COVID-19 protocols

    Oesterle was designated for COVID-19 protocols Tuesday.

    If Oesterle is sidelined beyond the Christmas break and is unavailable versus the Rangers on Monday, it's unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players considering he has managed just two points in 16 appearances. Even when healthy, the blueliner figures to periodically serve as a healthy scratch behind Gustav Lindstrom and Marc Staal.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Adjusting to new role in Motown

    Oesterle currently operates on the top defensive pairing for the Red Wings, but just two assists make up his point total through 13 games this season.

    Oesterle is a decent offensive contributor, as illustrated by his 20-point, 71-game campaign with the Coyotes in 2018-19. However, the Red Wings are utilizing him more as a stay-at-home defender and penalty-killing specialist. Just over 41 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts have taken place in the offensive zone, which is a career low, and Oesterle's averaging 1:16 of ice time shorthanded. This isn't the type of profile that translates to success in the fantasy realm.
