Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is finally back in Edmonton, although it took him 49 hours to get there from Russia.

Nugent-Hopkins was playing in the 2013 World Junior Championship. "We went to Helsinki, then London and then our flight was cancelled and we stayed there for a day and a half and then went to Toronto from there," Nugent-Hopkins said. "So it was quite the day." Two days technically. He's also trying to recover from a 13-hour time difference. Still, once he gets over the jet lag, he'll be one of the Oilers' top forwards this season.
