  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Assigned to AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/16) Nurse was sent down to Bakersfield of the AHL on Monday.

    Nurse played in 69 games for Edmonton this season notching three goals and 10 points. He brings needed toughness to the Oilers backend and should be a top four defender for the organization for years to come.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Back at practice Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/16) Nurse (throat) is practicing with the Oilers, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.

    Nurse left the game early Wednesday after taking a puck to the throat but has been cleared by the medical staff and is expected to play Saturday.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Exits with injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/16) Nurse has been ruled out of the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Canucks with an undisclosed injury.

    The severity of Nurse's ailment remains unclear, but the Oilers should provide an update on the 21-year-old blueliner's status ahead of Saturday's regular-season finale against Vancouver.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Eligible to return to lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/16) Nurse has served his three game suspension and is available against the Blues on Wednesday.

    Nurse likely went unmissed when picking your fantasy lineups, as he is in the midst of a 20-game scoring drought. On the season, the defenseman has provided little in terms of value with a dismal two goals and six helpers in 59 outings.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Slapped with three-game suspension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/10/16) Nurse was hit with a three-game suspension Thursday for an altercation with Sharks defenseman Roman Polak in Tuesday's contest, NHL.com reports.

    Nurse reportedly violated the NHL's Aggressor Rule (46.2), which is enforced when a suspected aggressor provokes a fight against an opponent "who is in a defenseless position or who is an unwilling combatant." Polak never dropped his mitts, and seemingly wanted no part in the fight apparently caused by Nurse mistakenly believing that Polak tripped forward Matt Hendricks, who was injured on the play.

  • October 17, 2014: Oilers Return Nurse To Junior Level
    Nurse was returned to his junior team at OHL Sault Ste. Marie on Friday.
    October 14, 2014: Oilers' Nurse To Make NHL Debut Tuesday
    Coach Dallas Eakins confirmed that Nurse would be in the lineup Tuesday against the Kings, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.The No. 7 overall pick of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Nurse had been a healthy scratch for the Oilers' first two games this season, but an injury to Jeff Petry will pave the way for him to make his NHL debut. It's unlikely that the Oilers will ask Nurse to be a direct replacement for Petry on the team's top pairing, so look for him to instead work in tandem with Mark Fayne.
    October 13, 2014: Oilers' Nurse (Undisclosed) Day-To-Day
    Nurse (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day but could play Tuesday against the Kings.Nurse is apparently dealing with some sort of injury, but the fact that there's a chance he could play Tuesday indicates it's nothing serious.
    October 8, 2014: Oilers' Nurse To Sit Out Opener
    Nurse will likely be a healthy scratch for Thursday's season opener against the Flames.With Nikita Nikitin (ankle) cleared to return to action Thursday, there won't be room for either Nurse and fellow blue line prospect Oscar Klefbom to slot into the lineup. Both youngsters would stand to benefit from playing regularly, so if Nurse continues to rot in the press box in the games to come, a demotion back to the minors would seem likely.
    October 5, 2014: Leon Draisaitl, Darnell Nurse to start year with Oilers
    The Edmonton Oilers are going to give their most recent first-round picks a shot at the NHL by keeping Darnell Nurse and Leon Draisaitl with the big club to start the season.
