Nugent-Hopkins registered three assists and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.

Nugent-Hopkins' helpers all came on special teams -- one on Zach Hyman's shorthanded goal in the second period and two on power-play tallies in the third. The 28-year-old Nugent-Hopkins shifted to left wing as Leon Draisaitl centered the second line Thursday. Through four games, Nugent-Hopkins has six assists (four on the power play), nine shots on net and a minus-1 rating in a top-six role.
