Ryan Nugent-Hopkins News
Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (illness) is on track to return to the lineup for Friday's tilt against Minnesota. He missed Wednesday's game against Boston with an illness but took part in Friday's optional morning skate, which signals that Nugent-Hopkins is feeling well enough to rejoin the action. The 30-year-old is averaging nearly a point per game, with 15 goals and 34 assists posted in 52 outings. He should jump on the second line and the first power-play unit on Friday.
Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins missed the morning skate with an illness and might not be available to play Wednesday against Boston. Nugent-Hopkins' absence would leave the Oilers without their fourth-highest scoring forward. The 30-year-old has tallied 15 goals and 49 points in 52 games. Following a line shake-up, Warren Foegele and Ryan McLeod received top-six roles Wednesday morning and will benefit from Nugent-Hopkins' absence against the Bruins if he doesn't play. Meanwhile, Connor Brown is in line to rejoin the lineup.
Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a spectacular four-assist game in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Wild. Two of his helpers came in power-play situations, and three of them were primary assists. Nugent-Hopkins rarely gets a mention, with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl grabbing the spotlight, but he's in the midst of another highly productive campaign, boasting five goals and 23 points through 24 appearances. He's seen regular first-line usage since Edmonton's coaching change and should continue to be a regular on the score sheet.
Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins put in a two-point performance as the team tied the second-round series against Vegas with a 4-1 victory Wednesday. He delivered a power-play assist on Evan Bouchard's game-winner in the first period and had his first postseason goal in the second. The 30-year-old now has six power-play points in 10 games this postseason, but his play in even-strength situations has been lacking, with Nugent-Hopkins getting only two points and posting a minus-four rating.
