Nugent-Hopkins registered two assists during Tuesday's 8-3 loss to St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Don't look now, but the 2011 first overall selection has recorded six goals and eight assists through his past 13 outings. Nugent-Hopkins' recent uptick in production is encouraging because the 24-year-old center is still just in the beginning stages of his offensive prime. Additionally, with opposing teams focused on slowing down Connor McDavid, Nugent-Hopkins should see some softer five-on-five matchups. A bounce-back campaign appears to already be in the works for the Burnaby, B.C. native.

Nugent-Hopkins scored twice in Tuesday's 8-2 victory over the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

The 24-year-old is now up to eight goals and 14 points in 18 contests. Nugent-Hopkins has been playing very well of late and has six goals in his last 10 games dating back to late-October. The goal Tuesday came with the man advantage, as Nugent-Hopkins has now struck three times with the man advantage after only netting five power-play tallies in 82 games last season. With the Oiler's offense heating up, Nugent-Hopkins makes for a very reliable fantasy play across a variety of formats.

Nugent-Hopkins recorded an assist during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The first overall pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft has four goals and nine points in his last eight games, so now might be a good time to scoop him up if another manager got antsy about the slow start. He seems to be rounding into form.

Nugent-Hopkins recorded two assists and six shots during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win against New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

The 24-year-old center now has four goals, four assists and 21 shots through his past seven games, and the uptick in production has him up to a respectable 11 points through 15 outings for the campaign. The Oilers have the potential to be a strong offensive club, and Nugent-Hopkins is just entering his prime scoring years, so he offers sneaky fantasy value and is probably undervalued in most circles.

Nugent-Hopkins had a goal in his side's 3-2 loss Wednesday to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent-Hopkins is showing signs of getting himself going after scoring three goals in his past three games. The Oilers need to find some answers after a wasted October, and getting consistent scoring from Nugent-Hopkins would be a big step in the right direction.

Nugent-Hopkins recorded an assist and three shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

The former first overall pick has four goals and six points in the first 10 games, buoyed by a 20% shooting percentage that's well above his career average. While the goal-scoring may regress, the 24-year-old playmaker is a fixture in Edmonton's top-six and carries solid fantasy value in standard formats.

Nugent-Hopkins scored twice in Thursday's 5-4 win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent-Hopkins came in with just one assist and a minus-3 rating during a five-game goal drought, but broke out by scoring his third and fourth goals of the season. Those goals were coincidentally the third and fourth goals for his team, with the latter tying things up with 8:44 left in the third period. Nugent-Hopkins has only topped 20 goals in a season once, but the three-time 50-point scorer certainly has the combination of offensive instincts and skilled teammates to push for that milestone every season.

Nugent-Hopkins tallied a late goal against the Canucks on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to get the win for Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent-Hopkins had a solid game, finishing with a goal, a plus-1 rating, a blocked shot, and tied for the team lead with four shots. The 24-year-old has been asked to bounce back from last year's sluggish scoring and, though it's early in the year, this wasn't a bad Game 2.

Nugent-Hopkins grabbed an assist and a pair of shots in Friday's Game 5 loss to Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent-Hopkins didn't post a point until the second round, but now, despite frequently being used in a defensive role, he has four assists in five games and an average of 2.4 shots per game.

Nugent-Hopkins had an assist, two shots and a hit in Edmonton's Game 1 win over Anaheim on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

That assist is Nugent-Hopkins's first point of the postseason. Though he hasn't shown up on the scoresheet often, he's seeing plenty of ice time and is skating on the team's second power play unit. He's played well but has largely been deployed in a defensive role. He's been better than the stats show, but his upside is limited by his usage.
