Larsson finished 2020-21 with 14 points in 52 contests, marking the seventh straight year in wich he's finished between 11 and 18 in the point column. The Swede doesn't move the needle much on offense, but he's solid enough to fill a third-line role for a rebuilding Coyotes team. Larsson's ice time dipped from 14:54 per game in 2019-20 to 13:59 per game with Arizona last year, but he should see an uptick again with the Coyotes letting Derick Brassard walk in free agency. Fantasy managers will likely pass over Larsson, but he's good for about 15 points, 100 hits and 30 PIM over the course of a full season, although a poor team situation will likely keep him in the negatives when it comes to plus-minus rating.
Larsson set a career high with 18 points in 62 games in 2019-20. The Swede didn't crack the 20-point mark in any of his seven seasons with the Sabres, as he was frequently deployed in a bottom-six role. Larsson does have a slight physical edge -- he had 85 hits last year and has topped 100 hits in three of the last five campaigns. He also gets some shorthanded time, but it's unlikely he'll move the needle for the notoriously low-scoring Coyotes. Expect Larsson to check in around 15 points, 90 hits and 80 shots on goal over the course of a full season.
Larsson has mustered between 11 and 17 points in each of the past five seasons, and the Swede can be penciled in for another finish near that range as he resumes his role on the Sabres' fourth line. He hasn't topped 50 PIM or 100 shots in a season, so Larsson isn't much help in those categories, either. Throw in his minus-49 rating over the past four seasons, and there's pretty much no reason to target Larsson.
Larsson was expected to break out last season but instead took a huge step back and again finds himself in no-man's land. The versatile Swedish forward was supposed to solidify the Sabres depth at center on the third line, but instead scored just 17 points and posted a minus-30 rating in 80 games. Time is running out for the 26-year-old, who will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season, and if he can't carve out a role the Sabres may not elect to keep him around. He's a strong forechecker with some offensive upside, but the offense is maddeningly inconsistent. He's slotted as the team's No. 3 center to start but his hold on that spot is not very strong.
Larsson appeared in just 36 games this past season after suffering a season-ending injuries that required surgery on his wrist and elbow. He scored six goals and 11 points as the team's No. 3 center, and was on his way to a career year before it was cut short. He'll assume bottom-six duties again for the upcoming season, and with a clean bill of health the 25-year-old should have one of the best seasons of his career. His offensive ceiling is capped, however, given Buffalo's depth at center and his lack of experience with just 178 career NHL games under his belt.
Buried at the bottom of the depth chart at the beginning of the past season, Larsson got his big chance late in the year after the Sabres suffered key injuries, and finished with 13 points in the final 19 games of the season while filling in as the team's top-line center. Signed to a one-year, one-way extension in the summer, Larsson is expected to be a regular contributor as a depth scoring winger, likely on the Sabres' third line. He'll have to prove last year's hot run was no fluke in order to earn a larger role.
The Swedish utility forward can do everything except stick with the Sabres. In 28 games, Larsson managed just four assists and was demoted to the AHL to finish the season. Considered a strong defensive player, Larsson’s offensive production in the AHL with 41 points in 51 games came as a surprise. He doesn’t possess the talent to duplicate that kind of production in the NHL, but it still bodes well for his future as a two-way player. He will have to compete for a spot in the Sabres lineup, and even if he doesn’t make the opening night roster he is a sure bet to get a call up later in the season.
Larsson was traded to Buffalo in the Jason Pominville deal and immediately reported to AHL Rochester, where he posted four points in seven games to go along with the 37 points in 62 games he posted with the Wild’s affiliate in Houston. The former second-round pick is expected to challenge for a spot on the big club this season, but there will be plenty of competition. A likely scenario is Larsson starting the season in the AHL with a potential mid-season recall.
Larsson is a dangler with a solid all-around game, making him an intriguing prospect in Minnesota's system. The Swede was taken 56th overall by the Wild in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, and signed a three-year, $2.7 million contract with the club this past May. However, the winger is expected to play for Brynas in Sweden in 2011-12, so he shouldn't be on your radar just yet.
Larsson was the Wild's second round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The LW showed promise in his Swedish junior leagues teams. Last season, he tallied 15 goals and 34 points in 40 games for Brynas IF Gavale. He's only 5-foot-10 but weighs in at a solid 200 lbs, so getting bigger is not something he'll have to work on. It'll be an adjustment playing against North American players, as he's only played in Sweden against his fellow countryman. The chances of making it up to the NHL this season are slim to none.
