    Missed his second straight practice with personal reasons. I hope this isn’t long term as we need him back as soon as possible.

    Hope all is well with him.

    I'm guessing "personal reasons" means it's not injury-related.

    Talked to a fella who's friend is neighbors with him. He said he went back to Sweden. Could be family sickness.

    Don't know if people realize but Nurse's game really improved when he was paired with Larsson. Same as Klefbom last year. There are lots of people on this board crapping all over him

    There's no sense in pushing him to rush anything, the season is over. Stay in Sweden for a week or whatever you want. Team isn't playing for anything and other guys need a chance to play anyway. Davidson and Auvitu deserve a longer look.

    Out of Chia's three infamous trades, the Hall for Larsson one was probably the best because at least we got a good usable piece back. Whatever the case, atleast that Larsson should be an Oiler for a long time is a good thing.

    Sounds like Adam Larsson's father has passed away.

    Awful news.

    Damn that is tough, I lost my mom at the same age and it took me a long time to get over that and back to normal. I hope he takes his time and come back when he is ready for it.

    RIP Robert Larsson, from all reports a great guy and good hockey player in his youth, playing for Skelleftea where Larsson also grew up and played.

    Only 50 years old. Former Skellefteå player just like Adam. Really sucks. :/

    Poor guy. He must be devastated. You don't expect to lose your father when he's only 50...

    Damn, that sucks. My dad wasn't too much older than that when he passed several years ago. My thoughts go out to Adam and his family.

    That’s horrible news. It’s times like these where hockey takes a back seat to reality. Best wishes through this trying time, Larsson family.

    Brutal news. Wish Adam and his family lots of love in an impossibly hard time.

    Lost my mom around the same age when I was 22.
    Just seeing a couple posters who've coped with that kind of loss, we all know how much it hurts to lose a parent. Hurts everyday still in fact.

    My thoughts with you guys too.

    Lost my father when he was 49 and I was 18. It still hurts to this day. My condolences to Adam and his family.

    RIP Robert.

    Oh man this hits home. Lost my father unexpectedly just 14 months ago. Hardest thing I've ever went through and still deeply affected by it.

    Though I'm pretty sure he'll never see this I'd like to offer Adam and his family my condolences. RIP Mr. Larsson. You had a lot to be proud of and I'm sure Adam and your family felt the same way.
