Ryan Nugent-Hopkins figures to be back at 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around this fall. He will be coming off the injury and a very disappointing sophomore season, but that could make him a nice bargain come draft day. (Updated 4/24/13).
The future is so bright for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins that he should wear shades. The top pick in the 2011 Entry Draft did not disappoint in his rookie season, scoring 18 goals and 52 points. RNH should only get better with experience and has plenty of offensive firepower to play alongside Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall, and possibly even the top overall pick from this season, Nail Yakupov. He is a player to target earlier, rather than later, in fantasy drafts as he will be one of the key players that will lead Edmonton back to respectability. (Updated 8/14/12)
