Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' goal scoring slump was extended to 23 NHL contests on Tuesday.

Of course, Nugent-Hopkins was able to find the back of the net eight times in 19 games during the lockout. Still, Nugent-Hopkins' cold streak is concerning as we might be seeing the start of a sophomore slump. "I want to help out the team at both ends of the ice and right now, I'm not offensively," said Nugent-Hopkins. "I'll keep working on it but I don't want to get frustrated. I don't want to let it get the best of me." On the bright side, he does have six assists this season.
