Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Scores First Goal

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored his first goal of the season -- a game winner -- as Edmonton knocked off the visiting Lightning 3-2 on Monday.
Analysis: RNH made Tampa pay in the third period after Ondrej Palat gifted an awful turnover to Jordan Eberle, who grabbed the only assist on his goal. Now that the Oilers have gotten their first win of the season out of the way, look for the Oilers' top line of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Eberle and Taylor Hall to get on the scoresheet more consistently.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Likely Back In Friday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) was on the ice for morning skate and looks likely to play Friday against the Canucks, TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was forced out of back-to-back contests earlier this week with the injury, but his return to morning skate, as well as the Oilers' demotion of Bogdan Yakimov, bodes well for his chances of returning to action. However, it does appear Nugent-Hopkins won't return to his usual spot as the pivot of the top line, as coach Dallas Eakins chose to adjust his trios of forwards at morning skate. Instead, look for Nugent-Hopkins to center the second line, with Teddy Purcell and Nail Yakupov flanking him on either side.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Won't Play Wednesday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) will not play Wednesday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: The Oilers apparently don't believe that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' injury is all that serious, but it's troublesome enough to keep him out for both ends of the team's back-to-back. Wednesday's demotion of Bogdan Yakimov to AHL Oklahoma City would appear to signal that Nugent-Hopkins could be ready to play Friday against Carolina.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Out Tuesday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Kings, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is still feeling sore after taking a hit from Vancouver's Dan Hamhuis on Saturday night, forcing him out of Monday's practice. Along with RNH, fellow top-liner Jordan Eberle will sit out with an undisclosed injury, leaving the Oilers a bit short-handed on offensive talent.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Day-To-Day

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been labeled day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, but could play Tuesday, Oilers play-by-play man Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: RNH, Jordan Eberle, Teddy Purcell and Darnell Nurse are all in that same category, with the Oilers withholding all information about their ailments. However, the 2011 No. 1 overall pick had his first NHL fight Saturday against Dan Hamhuis of the Avs, and it's possible that he's banged up a little as a result. He's got an assist and a minus-2 rating through two games thus far.

Nugent-Hopkins Sparks Oilers' Win

News: Playing on his 21st birthday Saturday, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins registered a goal, an assist, and two penalty minutes in Edmonton's season finale, a 5-2 win over Vancouver.
Analysis: The two points cap a 56-point campaign that presages a solid future. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is part of a parade of young talent on the Edmonton roster.

Four-Pack For Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice and handed out two assists in Tursday's loss to San Jose.
Analysis: RNH factored into all the Oilers' goals in this one, giving himself nine points in the last seven games. Of course, seven of those have come in two contests, so he's been a bit hit-or-miss of late.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Picks Up Trio Of Points

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins broke out of an extended slump Tuesday, scoring a power-play goal and adding two assists in a win over Nashville.
Analysis: He'd last scored way back on Jan. 26, and had collected just four assists in 15 games between then and Tuesday. The 20-year-old is obviously a premier talent, but he hasn't proven able to carry the Oilers' offense when other players aren't holding up their end.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Adds Two Helpers In Win

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins recorded two assists in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Sharks.
Analysis: The young center chipped in two more points Wednesday, and now has 10 points in his last 10 games. His team isn't having the best season, but the top line of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall, and Jordan Eberle has certainly been a bright spot, and the trio has been firing on all cylinders lately.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Tallies Two Points

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored a power-play goal and added an assist against the Predators on Sunday.
Analysis: RNH has 15 goals and 40 points, a nice bounce back on the score sheet after his disappointing sophomore season. However, he also is a minus-15, which is a definite negative for his fantasy value.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Scores Goal In Loss Friday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored his 14th goal of the season during the Oilers' 4-3 loss to the Coyotes on Friday.
Analysis: He brought the game to within one in the third period but the Oilers were unable to finish the comeback. With three points in his last five games, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins now has 38 points (14 goals, 24 assists) in 51 games this season.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Has Three-Point Night

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored two goals, one of which was the game-winner, and assisted on another during the Oilers' 4-3 comeback win against the Penguins on Friday.
Analysis: The 20-year old center had a strong December, but had been relatively quiet lately with just one assist over his previous four games. He'll look to springboard off this performance and continue the strong sophomore campaign he's having this season. He now has 13 goals and 22 assists over 45 games.

Nugent-Hopkins Scors In Oilers' Loss

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins lit the lamp for the 10th time this season in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: The one knock on him these days is an unwillingness to shoot; he's taken only five shots on goal in four games. But we suspect that that will turn around soon enough. He has tremendous talent for a 20-year-old, and belongs in your long-range plans.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Adds Two Assists In Win

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins recorded two assists in Monday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: The center now has nine goals and 20 assists in 37 games this season. His minus-10 rating isn't great, but he has five points in his last five games, and should continue to produce at a high rate despite his team's struggles.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Notches Two Points

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored his seventh goal and had the primary assist on Jordan Eberle's power-play winner in overtime Tuesday against Carolina.
Analysis: RNH has largely delivered the goods in terms of points this season, with 24 in 30 games, but his minus-12 rating has certainly hurt fantasy owners. Those in leagues that count face-off wins had to be excited by his performance at the dot on Saturday, winning 18 of 25, but he took a step back there Tuesday, coming away with just eight of 22.

OIlers' Nugent-Hopkins Gathers Three Helpers

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins delivered three assists in Thursday's win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Prior to Tuesday's tilt with the Blue Jackets, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had been stuck in a three-game scoring skid, but now seems to be clicking with his linemates. He has five assists in the Oilers' last two contests to overtake Jordan Eberle for the team lead with 13 helpers on the season.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Gathers Two Assists

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins assisted on two goals in Saturday's loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: Despite the absence of top-line talent Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has continued to click with new linemate Nail Yakupov, amassing seven points over his last four contests. His plus/minus rating remains stuck at an ugly minus-7, but that's mostly a product of having underperforming goalies Devin Dubnyk or Jason LaBarbera behind him in the net each night.

Rough Night For Oilers, Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins finished without a point in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Washington, posting six shots on goal and a minus-4 rating.
Analysis: This evening in northern Alberta was not ideal for RNH and his linemates, Jordan Eberle and Nail Yakupov, each of whom also finished a minus-4. A poor plus-minus rating is a caveat most owners accepted when deploying RNH into their lineups; His production has come in bunches this season, with three multi-point games which have accounted for seven of his eight points. He's going to see plenty of scoring chances, and if he stays healthy, his plus-minus will be outweighed by his point production.

Two Assists For Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins notched two assists and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's win over Montreal.
Analysis: After a slow start to the year -- just three points in six contests -- RNH has now rattled off five points in the last two games. The 2011 first overall pick obviously has point-per-game upside. Now, if only he could win some faceoffs; he's only gone positive at the dot once this year.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Points Thrice Saturday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored two goals and assisted on another to lead the Oilers to a 3-1 win over the Senators on Saturday.
Analysis: Though Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' final goal was of the empty-net variety, it was still by far his most productive game of the season. He finished the game plus-3 to improve his differential on the season to minus-6, earning the game's third star for his efforts.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins (Shoulder) Scores In Return

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shoulder) returned to action Monday against the Devils. He saw 28:12 of ice time, scored a power-play goal, and had six shots on net.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had some issues in his sophomore season, and he will look to rebound this year. This is a good start, and his injury seemed to not be an issue.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins To Return Monday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shoulder) will make his season debut Monday against the Devils, the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins wasn't pegged to return to action until Nov. 1, so a comeback a full three weeks before that date qualifies as a major surprise. Assuming his recovery hits no further setbacks in the coming days, pencil him back into a top-six role right away for the Oilers, who were lacking quality options at center with both Nugent-Hopkins and Sam Gagner sidelined.

Nugent-Hopkins Won't Rush Back For Edmonton

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shoulder) won't rush his return back to Edmonton, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: RNH is aware that the Oilers are woefully short at center with both Sam Gagner and himself sidelined but still believes Nov. 1 is his likely return date. He would love to return sooner and it is possible, but it's better to return a week late and play the remainder of the season than a week early and risk damaging the shoulder once again.

Oilers Extend Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shoulder) agreed to terms on a seven-year, $42 million contract extension with the Oilers on Thursday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Analysis: The former number-one overall pick is still recovering from shoulder surgery that has kept him out for a number of months, but the team had no hesitations in locking him up long-term. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins recorded four goals and 20 assists in 40 games with the Oilers last season, and now has a contract with the same AAV ($6 million) as linemates Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle.

The Oilers And Nugent-Hopkins Have Begun Contract Negotiations

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shoulder) and the Oilers have begun talks on a contract extension, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: The Oilers locked up Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle last year and now its RNH's turn. He is expected to get a deal somewhere north of $30 million.
