Ekman-Larsson: Solid Sophomore Season

Standard Spin: With 2 more assists on Friday in the Coyotes' loss to the the Blue Jackets, Oliver Ekman-Larsson is currently on a bit of a streak: he has a goal and 4 assists in his last 6 games.  He isn't the flashiest of defenders, but he has become fantasy relevant this season while playing in the shadow of Keith Yandle.  Ekman-Larsson now has 19 points in 44 games and should crack the 35+ point plateau by season's end, which is a big improvement on his 11 points in 48 games as a rookie in 2010-11.
