Oliver Ekman-Larsson Scores On A Rebound, Extends Career Long Point Streak To Five Games

Published On November 15, 2015 | By Jason Harrison | B-Sides

You’ve gotta be a pretty cool dude or have a ridiculously long name to be known by your initials only. Oliver Ekman-Larsson is both, as well as a Norris-caliber defenseman for this hockey club called the Arizona Coyotes.

He had a bit of a dry spell in the goal scoring department to start the season, but OEL broke the curse on Thursday night against Edmonton and continued to produce tonight in a losing effort against Columbus.

The goal starts with Anthony Duclair just getting the puck toward the net, where Tobias Rieder takes a whack and it and it ends up on the stick of a streaking Ekman-Larsson. A fortuitous bounce off of Sergei Bobrovsky’s glove later and OEL sits pretty with a two game goal streak and a career long five game point streak (2g-3a-5p).

In honor of OEL’s scoring streak we’ll be changing the blog name to HIG?

I’m not sure if anyone would know it’s an Arizona Coyotes blog anymore, or just assume it was a typo of the word PIG in all caps. Then again, at least they wouldn’t mistake us for a Swedish clothing line. Apparently our man is hockey’s David Beckham when it comes to undergarments.

One last thought: Movember can’t end soon enough for Ekman-Larsson. The mustache life is not the life for him.
