Another day, another Oiler heading to Russia. This time, it’s defenseman Philip Larsen — the 24-year-old Dane has reportedly inked a one-year agreement with Yugra of the KHL, according to Sports.ru. Larsen, who came to Edmonton as part of the Shawn Horcoff-to-Dallas trade, appeared in 30 games for the Oilers last season, scoring three goals and 12 points. He was in and out of the lineup repeatedly and spent some time with AHL Oklahoma City prior to parting ways with the club. As mentioned above, Larsen is just the latest Oiler to bolt for the KHL. The first was Russian Olympic defenseman Anton Belov, who left Edmonton after just one year (and 57 games) to sign with SKA St. Petersburg.
