Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Ruled Out For Worlds

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (foot) has been ruled out from participating with Canada in the 2015 World Ice Hockey Championships in May.
Analysis: The 22-year-old was optimistic earlier in the week that his fractured foot would heal up in time to have him available for the tournament, but after consulting with the Edmonton medical staff, he decided it was in his best interest to sit out. That certainly has to come as a relief to the Oilers' brass, who surely didn't want Ryan Nugent-Hopkins suffering a setback during the showcase that would impact his availability for training camp. With a full offseason to recover, Nugent-Hopkins should return to the team at full health next fall.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Hopeful For Worlds

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins revealed after Saturday's season finale that he cracked a bone in his foot when he he was struck by a puck in a March 30 game, Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was forced to sit out the Oilers' final six games of the season with the injury, finishing out the campaign with 24 goals and 56 points over 76 contests. The 22-year-old is hopeful he'll be fully recovered from the injury in time to suit up for Canada in the 2015 World Ice Hockey Championships in May, and expects to receive a verdict from doctors on that front by the end of thew week. If Nugent-Hopkins is cleared to play, he would likely need to wear protection on his skate to prevent the fracture from worsening.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Out For Thursday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) won't play Thursday versus the Sharks.
Analysis: The decision doesn't come as much of a surprise after Ryan Nugent-Hopkins failed to return to practice Wednesday. With only Saturday's game in Vancouver left on the schedule, it looks quite possible that Nugent-Hopkins won't play again this season, though coach Todd Nelson said the center hasn't officially been ruled out. With 24 goals, 56 points, and a minus-12 rating across 76 games this season, RNH has turned in production remarkably similar to what he posted in those categories in 2013-14 (24, 56, minus-12 in 80 games).

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Out Tuesday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins won't play Tuesday versus the Kings, reports the Edmonton Sun.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was unable to practice Monday, so his unavailability for Tuesday's game doesn't come as much of a surprise. His absence for a second consecutive game will allow coach Todd Nelson's experimentation with Taylor Hall at the top-line center spot to continue.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Day-To-Day

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) remains day-to-day.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who didn't practice Monday, doesn't seem likely to return to action before Thursday's game against the Sharks.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Out With Lower-Body Injury

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will not play Saturday against Calgary due to a lower-body injury, the team's official web site reports.
Analysis: He's an unexpected late scratch. The injury comes at a bad time as he's been hot with 12 points in his last 11 games.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Has Three-Point Night

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins remained red-hot Saturday, scoring two goals and adding an assist in a win over the Flyers.
Analysis: He's simply on a tear right now, racking up 14 points in his last seven games. Four of his last five outings have been multi-point games, propelling him to 53 points in 70 games on the season. Now that he's caught fire, make sure the 21-year-old is in your lineup, as he's already set a career-high in goals and appears to destined to also set a career-high in points.

Double Assists Again For Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins produced two assists, including one on the power play, in Monday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is enjoying his hottest run of the season. He's put up exactly two assists in each of his last three games, and has generated seven goals and 11 assists dating back to Feb. 10. The Oilers remain a mess -- Monday's victory was their first in eight games -- but Nugent-Hopkins has been able to overcome his team context of late, going a palatable minus-6 since the beginning of 2015. Continue to keep him active and ride the wave of scoring.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Picks Up Two More Points

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins collected two more assists in Friday's loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been red hot of late, racking up eight points in his last four games. He's been held off the scoresheet just twice in his last eight outings and is up to 47 points in 67 games. While the Oilers may have been eliminated from playoff contention, the 21-year-old Nugent-Hopkins is definitely worth a look if he's available.

Two Helpers In Loss For Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- gathered two penalty minutes and went minus-2 in Thursday's 6-4 loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: The Oilers just keep losing, and that's depressed RNH's season rating to a career-low minus-13. But he'll set a new career high in goals -- he's already matched last year's 19 -- and has a chance to surpass last season's 56 points as well. So there's development happening here even in the hockey gulag known as Edmonton.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Get Hat Trick In Loss

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins registered his second career hat trick, tallying three goals and an assist in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: It's difficult to collect four points and still be on the losing side of a three-goal game, but Ryan Nugent-Hopkins did just that. The trio of goals give him 19 on the year, tying his total from last season. The 21-year-old has been one of the lone bright spots in Edmonton this season, and should top the 50-point mark once again.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Helps Out Saturday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins handed out an assist on the Oilers' lone goal in Saturday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins finished February with four goals and four assists, and has delivered between six and nine points in every month so far this season. That dependability is nice, but many were expecting the former No. 1 overall pick's production to take another step forward in 2014-15, and that just hasn't materialized. Instead, he remains on track for another 50-point campaign, a mark where he's hovered around in each of his three full seasons in the league.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Scores Twice In OT Win

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice on six shots, finished plus-1 and collected a minor penalty Thursday against Montreal.
Analysis: RNH hadn't scored a goal since the game prior to the All-Star break, and he'd registered just three helpers over eight games since then prior to Thursday's action. It's been a disappointing season for the former No. 1 pick, as the Oilers have struggled as a team, depressing his statistics.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Registers PP Assist

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins collected a power-play assist in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: While Ryan Nugent-Hopkins hasn't been a disappointment to the extent of many of his other compatriots, he hasn't taken the step toward stardom that those who rostered him were hoping for in his third NHL season. The 21-year-old has maintained utility in mid-sized formats with 12 goals and 20 assists in 53 games, but his dearth of power-play production (no goals, six assists) and plus/minus hit (minus-9) have tarnished his luster.

Nugent-Hopkins Powers Oilers' Comeback Win

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was pivotal to Tuesday's comeback and shootout win against Washington, chipping in a power-play assist late in the second period and scoring the game-tying goal with 1:07 remaining in the third.
Analysis: That's a pair of two-point efforts over the last three games for Nuge, who'd been limited to a single lonely assist in the seven preceding contests. He's right around what's been his typical scoring pace so far, headed for about 50 points, but we're still waiting for the former No. 1 overall pick to take that next step. He might not be able to do so until the Oilers field a better all-around roster, though.

Nugent-Hopkins Tallies Two Helpers For Oilers

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins assisted on both of Benoit Pouliot's goals -- one shorthanded, the other on the man advantage -- in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: He'd gone three straight and six of seven without finding the scoresheet, as it seems the Oilers' team struggles have been starting to get to the former No. 1 pick. RNH is just short of a 50-point pace, which has to be considered a disappointment for a player of his pedigree, as he was expected to develop into something resembling a point-per-game player by now.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Nabs Goal

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tallied the Oilers' lone goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins now has four points in his last five games and has gone plus-2 during that time, but with the Oilers playing horrendously in just about every facet of the game, the center's uptick in scoring has been largely inconsequential. The 21-year-old has been a silver lining in a dismal season for the Oilers, producing 23 points in 34 games.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Scores Wednesday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored the lone goal of the game for the Oilers in a 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Wednesday.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has four points in his last six games and 18 overall this season while skating to a minus-6 and firing 66 shots on goal. The tally was his seventh of the season so even on the league's worst team, he's on pace to at least match his career high of 19 set last year.

Modest Point Streak For Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins bagged a goal in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: RNH has a point in each of his last three games, but it hasn't exactly uplifted the Oilers, who remain in the midst of an 11-game losing streak. The only silver lining for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is that his plus/minus rating hasn't suffered too much in the Oilers' miserable season; he currently sits at minus-5 over 24 games.

Production Slowing For Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had an assist, picked up two penalty minutes and won 18-of-28 faceoff attempts in Tuesday's loss to the Stars.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had been rolling offensively earlier in the month, but he's since seen his production slow to a crawl. The assist was his first point in five games, and he's attempted just seven shots during that span.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Gets Two Helpers

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins dished out a pair of assists and went minus-1 in Thursday's overtime loss to the Senators.
Analysis: Although both of his helpers came at even strength, RNH was on the ice for three Ottawa goals. He's done nothing but pour in the points lately, with five in his last three games and just two scoreless outings in his last 12.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins Tallies Two Points

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins picked up a goal and an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has gotten off to a strong start as expected, as the two points pushed his total to 10 through 13 games. His shooting percentage currently sits at a career best 15.1%, so that could drop back down but he should still be good for about 20 goals and over 30 assists.

Nugent-Hopkins Scores Oilers' Only Goal Tuesday

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was the only Edmonton skater to beat Steve Mason on Tuesday, completing a (nearly) end-to-end rush with his fourth goal of the season.
Analysis: RNH looked dominant en route to this goal, skating right past the Flyers' defense and then putting a vicious backhand over Mason's shoulder, but it was the only bright spot for the Oil. His line with Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Eberle was Edmonton's only forward grouping that avoided taking a minus rating for the game, but Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Eberle will both certainly miss Taylor Hall's presence while Hall remains sidelined with a knee injury.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins: Three-Game Goal Streak

News: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins knocked home a goal for the third straight game Friday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: While the recent scoring binge has been a boon to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' fantasy owners, the fact that he's registered the three tallies on a total of four shots on goal suggests he might be benefiting from some puck luck. The run of point production figures to slow down eventually, but Nugent-Hopkins still looks primed for another 50-point season.

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.
