Nail Yakupov scored the 12th goal of his rookie campaign, the Edmonton Oilers' only tally in a 4-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Yakupov has collected 26 points in 46 games in his first campaign at the NHL level. He's shown signs of brilliance even if his initial work has been a bit of a disappointment. One thing owners would likely to see from the sniper is more shots; he only has 71 SOG in 46 GP, less than two per contest.
