  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Out at least 12 weeks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/12/16) Nurse (ankle) required surgery to repair ligament and bone damage in his ankle and will be sidelined for at least 12 weeks, the team announced Monday.

    With four other defensemen already on IR, losing Nurse for the next three months is another huge blow to the Oilers' blue line. Prior to getting hurt, the 21-year-old was bogged down in a seven-game pointless streak. With Nurse sidelined, look for Kris Russell to fill the gap in ice time as much as possible.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Expected out for rest of calendar year

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/16) Nurse (lower body) isn't expected to return before January, per head coach Todd McLellan.

    As you'd expect, Nurse is on injured reserve. Now, a whopping five Oilers blueliners are on that list, prompting the team to rely on minor-league call-ups such as David Musil and Dillon Simpson. Edmonton will miss Nurse's grinding ways; he's amassed 60 hits at a rate of 2.40 per game this season.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Ends up on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/3/16) Nurse is dealing with a lower-body injury that's expected to keep him shelved long-term. According to the NHL media site, he's been placed on IR.

    It's not clear when Nurse sustained the injury. The mobile rearguard skated for 18:52 in Tuesday's game against the Jets, showing effectiveness on both ends of the ice with a plus-2 rating. At any rate, the Oilers have recalled Dillon Simpson from AHL Bakersfield as a reinforcement on the back line.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Scores on one of seven shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/16) Nurse scored on one of his game-high seven shots Thursday in Los Angeles.

    Nurse broke a seven-game point drought while setting a season high in shot attempts. He still finished with a minus-1 rating despite the strong effort in the 4-2 loss, and is now minus-7 over his past four games for the struggling Oilers. The offensive upside is there, but Nurse's questionable play in his own zone and inconsistency make him a frustrating player to own.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Scores goal against Toronto

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/1/16) Nurse scored a third-period goal, registered six shots on net and threw five hits during Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs.

    Nurse's fantasy stock is unreliable because he hasn't received 20 minutes of ice time in a game all season, and he rarely receives a power-play look. With two goals and two assist through 10 games, there is some offensive upside, and Nurse's six PIM, 16 shots on goal and 25 hits are solid peripheral statistics. There's ample potential, but without an expanded role, Nurse is best left to deep fantasy leagues. Tuesday's outing certainly helps his case for additional minutes, though.

  • 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.
