Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Over an hour ice time in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse had 62:07 of total ice time and six blocks in Monday's 4-3 triple-overtime loss to Winnipeg in Game 4.

The 26-year-old workhorse played an hour-plus of hockey in this contest and had a shift in the first overtime that lasted over 4:40. Nurse led all skaters in ice time in the contest with the Oilers' season on the line just a night after playing 31:18 in Game 3. Although Nurse and the Oilers finished second in the North Division, they've failed to advance to the second round for the fourth consecutive year.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Contributes helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse posted an assist and four hits in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Jets in Game 1.

Nurse had the secondary helper on Jesse Puljujarvi's second-period tally. The 26-year-old Nurse did a little bit of everything in 56 regular-season games -- he had 16 goals, 36 points, a plus-27 rating, 154 shots on net, 117 hits and 100 blocked shots. The defenseman will likely see a ton of minutes as a top-pairing option, and he should be able to contribute in some way more often than not during the postseason.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Dishes pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse recorded two assists, one on the power play, and two blocked shots in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.

The well-rounded defenseman has put together a strong season with 36 points, 147 shots on net, 116 hits, 96 blocks and a plus-29 rating through 53 appearances. Nurse should continue to see work on the top pairing as the Oilers look for a deep playoff run.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse posted an assist, five shots on goal, four hits and nine PIM in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Canucks.

Nurse and Canucks forward Zack MacEwen had a few run-ins during the contest that led to the former taking two minor penalties. They then dropped the gloves early in the third period. Nurse added an assist on a Leon Draisaitl tally after he was freed from the sin bin. The 26-year-old Nurse has surpassed his point total from last year with 16 goals and 18 helpers in 52 outings this season. He's been solid in non-scoring production too -- he has 146 shots on net, 116 hits, 94 blocked shots, 57 PIM and a plus-29 rating.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He later added an assist on Connor McDavid's goal that extended the lead to 4-0. With Oscar Klefbom (shoulder) out for the season, Nurse has stepped forward and emerged as a bona fide top-pairing NHL defenseman.
