Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Wednesday night's game against Dallas, but he's expected to be back for Saturday's match with Detroit.

The team's Twitter account posted: "[Coach Ralph] Krueger says RNH was banged up in OT vs. Vancouver, could play tonight but don't want to 'force him into a situation where he's not 100%'" Nugent-Hopkins didn't take part in the team's morning skate. He hasn't score a goal yet this season, but has five helpers in nine games.
