Nugent-Hopkins has turned down a chance to play for Team Canada in the worlds, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports. Nugent-Hopkins has decided to stay at home and continue to work on the hand he broke earlier this season. While the injury healed enough to allow him to play the last couple of games in the regular season, it's still not 100 percent. RNH will go into the 2016-17 season as the likely center on the second line but who will flank him has yet to be determined.
Nugent-Hopkins (concussion) is expected be play Saturday night against the Flames, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports. Previous reports suggested that RNH would be held out for the fourth consecutive game, but now fantasy owners should be racing to get him back into lineups. Various ailments have interrupted Nugent-Hopkins' campaign, but he's been impactful when healthy, having notched 33 points in 53 games with one-third of that total taking place on the man advantage.
Nugent-Hopkins (concussion) continues to progress, but has been ruled out for Saturday's tilt against Calgary. The former first-overall pick has endured an injury-riddled season, playing only 52 games. Nugent-Hopkins's play has taken a step back while he has been on the ice, scoring at a rate 0.63 points per game, opposed to a rate of 0.74 last season. Expect Nugent-Hopkins to return at some point before the conclusion of the 2015-16 campaign.
Nugent-Hopkins (concussion) is skating with the team. It still remains unlikely that Nugent-Hopkins will play Saturday versus Calgary. This has been a trying season for RNH who just returned from a broken hand earlier in March to now only have to deal with the concussion. Nugent-Hopkins is likely to return to the lineup for the final week of the season.
Nugent-Hopkins (concussion) won't play Monday against the Ducks. Per coach Todd McLellan, Nugent-Hopkins, who skated Monday morning, "feels better. He's trying hard & wants to come back and play." That said, with the Oilers out of the playoff mix, the team has little incentive to rush the forward back with just four regular season games to go.
