  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Contributes two points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Nurse scored a goal and added a helper in a 6-4 loss Tuesday to Los Angeles.

    Nurse now has five goals and six assists in 42 games this year, as a 37-game absence due to an ankle injury has curbed his offensive production. Still, the 11 points are a new career high for the 2013 seventh-overall pick, who's counted on primarily for his defensive game rather than his scoring prowess. He also still hasn't recorded a power-play point this year thanks to an average of just six seconds per contest with the man advantage.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Getting back in flow

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/17) Nurse finished with two assists and a game-high plus-3 rating in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Bruins.

    Both of Nurse's helpers came in the first period, as he played a key role in his team scoring four goals in that frame and ultimately chasing goalie Tuukka Rask early in the second. The 22-year-old blueliner had gone minus-2 without a point in his first six appearances following a 35-game absence, but he's started to find the range with three points and a plus-7 rating over the past two games.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Returns Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/17) Nurse will return to the Oilers lineup Sunday following a 35-game absence.

    Nurse hasn't played since Dec. 1. His return is great for the Oilers and adds a decent depth option on defense in many fantasy formats. However, after an absence that long you may want to wait and see him playing 100 percent before rostering him.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Possible return Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/17) Nurse (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup against in Nashville.

    Having missed 37 games so in his third year, Nurse will have his best chance to play Sunday. The 22-year-old defenseman has 60 hits and 25 blocked shots in his 25 appearances this season, while firing 23 shots on goal in this span. If he does return against Nashville, expect him to fit back into the third defensive rotation, where he averaged 17:40 of ice time.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Won't play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/24/17) Nurse (ankle) will not play Friday's away game against the Capitals despite being activated from injured reserve earlier in the day.

    Considering Nurse has already missed 36 games to his injury, the team must assume that there can't be much harm in holding him out for at least one more. The 22-year-old blueliner will be a likely candidate to return for Sunday's game in Nashville.
