Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C EDM 11 Days

Nugent-Hopkins was pivotal to Tuesday's comeback and shootout win against Washington, chipping in a power-play assist late in the second period and scoring the game-tying goal with 1:07 remaining in the third.

That's a pair of two-point efforts over the last three games for Nuge, who'd been limited to a single lonely assist in the seven preceding contests. He's right around what's been his typical scoring pace so far, headed for about 50 points, but we're still waiting for the former No. 1 overall pick to take that next step. He might not be able to do so until the Oilers field a better all-around roster, though.

Nugent-Hopkins assisted on both of Benoit Pouliot's goals -- one shorthanded, the other on the man advantage -- in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning.

He'd gone three straight and six of seven without finding the scoresheet, as it seems the Oilers' team struggles have been starting to get to the former No. 1 pick. RNH is just short of a 50-point pace, which has to be considered a disappointment for a player of his pedigree, as he was expected to develop into something resembling a point-per-game player by now.

Nugent-Hopkins tallied the Oilers' lone goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Flames.

Nugent-Hopkins now has four points in his last five games and has gone plus-2 during that time, but with the Oilers playing horrendously in just about every facet of the game, the center's uptick in scoring has been largely inconsequential. The 21-year-old has been a silver lining in a dismal season for the Oilers, producing 23 points in 34 games.

Nugent-Hopkins scored the lone goal of the game for the Oilers in a 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Wednesday.

Nugent-Hopkins has four points in his last six games and 18 overall this season while skating to a minus-6 and firing 66 shots on goal. The tally was his seventh of the season so even on the league's worst team, he's on pace to at least match his career high of 19 set last year.

Nugent-Hopkins bagged a goal in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.

RNH has a point in each of his last three games, but it hasn't exactly uplifted the Oilers, who remain in the midst of an 11-game losing streak. The only silver lining for Nugent-Hopkins is that his plus/minus rating hasn't suffered too much in the Oilers' miserable season; he currently sits at minus-5 over 24 games.

Nugent-Hopkins dished out a pair of assists and went minus-1 in Thursday's overtime loss to the Senators.

Although both of his helpers came at even strength, RNH was on the ice for three Ottawa goals. He's done nothing but pour in the points lately, with five in his last three games and just two scoreless outings in his last 12.

Nugent-Hopkins picked up a goal and an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Rangers.

Nugent-Hopkins has gotten off to a strong start as expected, as the two points pushed his total to 10 through 13 games. His shooting percentage currently sits at a career best 15.1%, so that could drop back down but he should still be good for about 20 goals and over 30 assists.

Nugent-Hopkins was the only Edmonton skater to beat Steve Mason on Tuesday, completing a (nearly) end-to-end rush with his fourth goal of the season.

RNH looked dominant en route to this goal, skating right past the Flyers' defense and then putting a vicious backhand over Mason's shoulder, but it was the only bright spot for the Oil. His line with Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Eberle was Edmonton's only forward grouping that avoided taking a minus rating for the game, but Nugent-Hopkins and Eberle will both certainly miss Taylor Hall's presence while Hall remains sidelined with a knee injury.

Nugent-Hopkins tallied a goal for the third straight game Friday against the Hurricanes.

While the recent scoring binge has been a boon to Nugent-Hopkins' fantasy owners, the fact that he's registered the three tallies on a total of four shots on goal suggests he might be benefiting from some puck luck. The run of point production figures to slow down eventually, but Nugent-Hopkins still looks primed for another 50-point season.
