Nugent-Hopkins (sternum) is “penciled into” Saturday’s lineup.

Nugent-Hopkins has missed the last 18 games with a sternum/ribs injury but it looks like he is set to return tomorrow. The Oilers season is over, but RNH has a chance to build off of a strong first-half of the season, where he picked up 16 goals and 15 assists (31 points) in 46 games.

Nugent-Hopkins will be out long-term with a hand injury he suffered on Monday.

Nugent-Hopkins suffered a hand injury after blocking a shot in Monday’s win over the Panthers. Nugent-Hopkins will miss an extended period of time and Connor McDavid is still sidelined, so the Oilers are left with just four healthy centres, Leon Draisaitl, Mark Letestu, Matt Hendricks and Anton Lander.

Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) will play on Friday vs. Vancouver.

Nugent-Hopkins missed the last two games, but will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Canucks. The first line rushes he took were with Nail Yakupov and Teddy Purcell, but then he was reportedly between Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall at the end of practice, so expect him to be in his usual spot on the top-line. He has one assist in two games.

Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) is on the ice for the morning skate, but not taking part in line rushes.

RNH missed practice on Monday with an undisclosed and is not practicing on any particular line this morning, which would suggest he is not playing tonight. Mark Arcobello is skating in his spot on the top-line, so if RNH can't go expect that the be the case tonight. We will get an update following the skate.

Nugent-Hopkins shoulder seemed to be fine last night as he played 28+ minutes in his first action of the season.

RNH recorded six shots and had a power-play goal in the Oilers comeback win. After a successful rookie season, his sophomore year was nothing to write home about. One-goal in one-game is a solid way to start the season for the 2011 first overall pick.

Ryan Nugent Hopkins is expected make his season debut on Monday vs. the Devils.

Nugent-Hopkins is coming off of shoulder surgery in the offseason. He was expected to miss much more than just two games, but that does not appear to be the case. His return will certainly be a welcome sight to the Oilers, who are really thin down the middle right now.
