Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) may be available versus Vancouver on Tuesday, though no final decision has been made. Coach Dave Tippett told reporters, "We'll skate again tomorrow morning and make the final call. If we think he's not going to take a step back, he'll be a player tomorrow."
Nugent-Hopkins has been out of action for the Oilers' previous six contests with his last appearance coming Dec. 31 versus the Devils. While the 28-year-old center had just one goal in his previous 10 games before getting hurt, he did manage five helpers over that stretch, including a pair of power-play assists.
