Nugent-Hopkins signed an eight-year, $41 million contract with Edmonton on Tuesday.
Nugent-Hopkins has appeared in 656 games for the Oilers since being selected first overall in the 2001 NHL Draft. Over those 10 seasons, the 28-year-old winger compiled four 20-goal campaigns and has topped the 50-point threshold five times. With a full 82-game campaign next year, Nugent-Hopkins should be capable of reaching both those marks in 2021-22 which makes him a top-end fantasy option.

Kailer Yamamoto's shot attempt was blocked and rolled right to Nugent-Hopkins in the left faceoff circle, and he deposited it to give the Oilers a 2-1 lead in the first period. It was the 15th goal of the year for Nugent-Hopkins, who is back on the left side of Edmonton's second line with Yamamoto and Leon Draisaitl, a trio that was so effective for the Oilers down the stretch last season. An Edmonton playoff run will depend largely on secondary scoring in support of Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, particularly at even strength, and Nugent-Hopkins is one of the forwards who will be counted upon to provide it.
