Lagesson has an assist in five AHL contests with the Marlies this season. The 27-year-old defenseman has provided seven assists in 60 career NHL outings.

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.

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.... See More ... See Less
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
