Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Produces assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse notched an assist, three shots on goal and four PIM in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 4.

Nurse picked up two assists in the series, but his pair of penalties in Game 4 limited the Oilers' ability to gain momentum in a must-win situation. The 25-year-old blueliner had six PIM in the series, as well as nine blocked shots, nine shots on goal, and eight hits. Nurse put up 33 points, 172 hits, 170 shots and 141 blocks in 71 regular-season contests and figures to be a key piece of the Oilers' defense in 2020-21.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Adds helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse registered an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Nurse fed Connor McDavid for a goal just 19 seconds into the first period. The 25-year-old Nurse had 33 points to go with 172 hits, 141 blocked shots and 170 shots on net in 71 games during the regular season. The blueliner is capable of making an impact at both ends of the ice, though his relative lack of power-play time could hinder his offense.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Registers two shots Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse (undisclosed) registered two shots and two hits while playing 22:40 of ice time against Calgary on Tuesday.

Nurse led the team in ice time by logging time on both the power play (2:52) and penalty kill (3:16). The blueliner should maintain his spot on the No. 2 PP unit, which makes him a solid value option in DFS contests.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse has been labeled "unfit to play" and isn't practicing Saturday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Nurse was spotted watching Saturday's practice from the stands, so it's possible he's just sitting out for precautionary reasons. The 25-year-old blueliner notched five goals and 33 points in 71 games during the regular season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Doles out two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse had two assists and four hits in a 4-3 loss to Chicago on Thursday.

Nurse logged 24:19 of ice time against the Blackhawks, second only to his defense partner Ethan Bear (26:03) among Oilers skaters. That duo has emerged as Edmonton's No. 1 pairing in the absence of the injured Oscar Klefbom (shoulder), and Nurse is in the midst of a three-game point streak (six assists). For the season, Nurse has provided five goals and 32 points in 68 games to go along with 46 PIM.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Supplies power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse posted a power-play assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Stars.

Nurse also skated 30:50, his highest ice time of the year. It's well earned -- the Ontario native has four assists, seven blocks and five shots in the last two games. He's up to 30 points, 162 shots, 156 hits and 132 blocks in 67 appearances.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Shakes apple tree in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse registered three assists, including one on the power play, in Monday's 8-3 win over the Predators.

Nurse added four blocked shots, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in the contest. The trio of helpers puts Nurse at 29 points in 66 games this year. He's added 159 shots, 156 hits, 129 blocks and an even plus-minus rating. With solid non-scoring numbers, Nurse represents a strong fantasy player in formats that reward his physicality, although he's no slouch in standard scoring systems.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Manages helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse recorded an assist, two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes.

Nurse has points in consecutive games after scoring a goal in Florida on Saturday. The 25-year-old defenseman has registered 26 points, 139 shots, 138 hits, 107 blocks and a plus-3 rating through 59 contests this season. While his 41-point output from last year probably won't be matched, Nurse's all-around game makes him a solid choice in fantasy formats that reward lots of categories.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Tallies empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse potted an empty-net goal and went plus-3 in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

Nurse's tally at 18:02 of the third period restored a two-goal advantage for the Oilers. The defenseman added two shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in 23:13 on Saturday. He's up to 25 points, 136 hits, 139 shots and 105 blocks in 58 contests this season.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Inks two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse and the Oilers agreed to a two-year, $11.2 million extension Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

The 25-year-old blueliner has 24 points in 55 games this season and averages 22:46 of ice time per game, second most among Oilers skaters. This contract should lock Nurse into Edmonton's top-four for at least the next two seasons.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Records pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse produced two assists, four hits, four blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks.

Nurse had a hand in first-period tallies by Sam Gagner and Connor McDavid. The seventh-overall pick from 2013 is up to 24 points (four scores, 20 helpers), 127 shots on net, 124 hits and 96 blocks in 54 games. His all-around strong production -- excluding just three assists with a man advantage -- warrants fantasy attention as a solid depth option on defense.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Throws body around
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse racked up 12 hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Flames.

Nurse has never shied away from physical play, but this was a big effort even by his standards. The 24-year-old has 21 points, 115 shots on goal, 113 hits, 88 blocks and 36 PIM through 50 outings this season. His solid all-around production should keep him on the fantasy radar.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Goals in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse tallied a goal on two shots and added four hits in Monday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

Nurse has doubled his goal output to four with a pair over the last two games. The defenseman has 21 points, 104 shots on goal, 92 hits and 77 blocked shots in 45 contests overall. He's got a long-shot chance at 40 points for a second straight season, but solid non-scoring stats can make him of value in many fantasy formats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the goal, Nurse reached the 20-point plateau -- he's added 102 shots on goal, 88 hits and 76 blocked shots for well-rounded production in 44 games.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Chips in with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse posted an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Flames.

Nurse's assist came when his point shot was deflected by Connor McDavid for the Oilers' lone goal. With six assists in his last 10 games, Nurse has enjoyed a productive run recently. The blueliner is now at 19 points, 96 shots, 69 blocks and 80 hits in 41 contests, putting him just a little behind last year's 41-point effort.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Provides assist Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse collected an assist, four blocked shots and two shots on goal in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse supplied an assist, five shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 2-1 win over the Stars.

Nurse collected the secondary assist on Zack Kassian's opening tally in the first period. Nurse has accrued four assists, nine hits and 22 shots on goal over his last five games. For the season, the 24-year-old blueliner has 17 points, 87 shots, 75 hits, 55 blocked shots and 29 PIM in 36 contests. Those numbers make him a well-rounded option for fantasy owners who don't need a power-play boost.

Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Mixed results Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nurse produced an assist, four hits, four shots on goal, five PIM and a minus-3 rating in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Wild.

From a fantasy perspective, Nurse had a productive game, but the on-ice result was a bit more mixed. His assist came on a Connor McDavid goal in the third period, partially making up for taking a fighting major in the middle frame when he dropped the mitts with Jordan Greenway. Nurse has produced a good season so far, with 16 points, 79 shots, 71 hits, 53 blocked shots and 29 PIM in 34 contests. The all-around production adds value in many different fantasy formats, although he sees minimal power-play time.
