Letestu scored the Oilers' eighth goal of the night on the power play and earlier had an assist in a blowout win over the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

Letestu centers the fourth line, but it's his role on the top power-play unit that makes him worthy of a look in some deep leagues. The 32-year-old has scored all three of his goals this season with the man advantage and should start putting up more production given the team's recent offensive outburst. Letestu netted 11 power-play markers last season and remains valuable as long as he sticks on that lethal first unit.

Letestu secured the 2-1 overtime victory over Chicago with a big power-play slap shot on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Letestu ended the game with just seconds left before the shootout while The Oilers were on a 4-on-3 man advantage. The 32-year-old has now scored a power-play goal in back-to-back contests. Letestu set career highs in goals (16) and points (35) last year and with Edmonton's dangerous offense, he should post similar numbers once again.

Letestu netted a pair of goals and added two assists in Sunday's Game 6 win over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

That's a three-game point streak for Letestu, who has been an x-factor for the Oilers this postseason. He plays in the bottom-six, but Letestu's main value comes in his shorthanded and power-play ice time. Eight of his 11 points this season have come with the man advantage, as he always seems to know where to be at the right time. Letestu isn't a major point producer, but in these playoffs he's providing to be a solid secondary contributor behind some big names up front.

Letestu grabbed an assist and tied for a team-leading six shots in Friday's loss to Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

Letestu bounced all over the lineup in the double overtime contest. It's not a recipe that's easily duplicated, but he's been finding success in recent games. He's nowhere near being the most valuable player on the team, but he's been a versatile asset in the series. In the first five games of the second round, he's posted two goals, two assists, and an average of 2.6 shots per game.

Letestu scored two power-play goals during Wednesday's Game 1 win over Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran forward plays a key special-teams role for the Oilers and has collected three goals and two helpers through seven playoff games this spring. It's been a nice followup to his career-high 35 points in the regular season, which included 11 goals and three helpers with the man advantage. Letestu checks out as a sneaky source of cap relief in daily contests because of his role on the No. 1 power-play unit.

Letestu potted a power-play goal in Tuesday's 2-1 victory against the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

It was the second game-winning tally in eight games for the veteran, who has come alive in February with three goals and seven points over his past eight outings. He'll look to extend his goal-scoring streak to three games when the Red Wings come calling in Saturday's home contest.

Letestu contributed a power-play goal and an assist Tuesday against Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Six of Letestu's 11 goals have come with the extra man, which isn't surprising considering he centers the fourth line at even strength while also skating on the top power-play unit. The 32-year-old forward has reached double-digit goals on six different occasions, but has never scored more than 14. He's currently on pace to top both that mark and his career high of 34 points.

Letestu grabbed a goal and four shots in just 11:15 of ice time during Wednesday's win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

Letestu is on pace for 16 goals, which would be a career high. But betting on him hitting that mark is betting that he continues to have the best shooting rate he's had since the 2013-14 season and that he continues to shoot at 14.3 percent, which would be the best mark of his career. It's not impossible, but at 31, we don't often see career seasons.

Letestu scored the game-winning goal on a power play in a 2-1 victory over the Devils on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

The goal snapped a five-game point drought, but with 18 points in 38 games, Letestu remains on a career pace. Half of his eight goals have come with the man advantage and one-quarter have come while shorthanded, giving Letestu sneaky value in deep formats that count special teams play.

Letestu scored a goal, recorded two assists (one on the power play) and registered seven shots on net during Wednesday's win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Out of nowhere, Letestu has five goals, 11 points, 31 shots, nine PIM and a plus-4 rating through 11 games this month. The offense represents the majority of his seven goals and 17 points for the year, and the 31-year-old veteran's previous career high was 34 points during the 2013-14 campaign. He's likely still best reserved to deep seasonal leagues, but there is some sneaky appeal in daily contests because Letestu is rolling with the No. 1 power-play unit and typically very affordable.
