Nugent-Hopkins dished out three assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win versus the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent-Hopkins was pointless when the Oilers were down 4-2, but he had a primary assist on each of the next three goals to boost the team to its second win of the year. Nugent-Hopkins now has a goal and five points in the last two games, and he'll look to extend the streak Thursday against the Bruins.

Nugent-Hopkins scored a goal and an assist while adding four shots and a plus-1 rating in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The helper came on the power play, as he shoveled the puck down low to Leon Draisaitl who then slid it across the crease and set up Connor McDavid for the game-winner early in the third period. Nugent-Hopkins had been held pointless through the first two games of the season, but seeing consistent ice time alongside McDavid, both at even strength and with the man advantage, was bound to pay dividends sooner or later.

Nugent-Hopkins closed out the 2017-18 season by tallying 10 points in the final 10 games.

EDGE Analysis

The top draft pick in 2011's draft finished 2017-18 with 48 points (24 goals, 24 assists) in 62 games -- had he played the full 82 games, Nugent-Hopkins would have easily set a new career high in points (56 in 2014-15). The 25-year-old center missed a month and a half (ribs) and upon returning, was converted to left wing in order to play alongside Connor McDavid. Edmonton has continually been searching for the perfect lineman for McDavid --

they may have found it in Nugent-Hopkins (10 points in the final 10 games). The British Columbia native is set for another fruitful season in Oil Country in 2018-19.

Nugent-Hopkins posted one goal and one power-play assist in Saturday's game against the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

The assist was Nugent-Hopkins' first power-play point since March 5 against Arizona. The 24-year-old forward will finish his campaign tied with his career-best 24 goals from the 2014-15 season, but Nugent-Hopkins played 14 less games this year. Nugent-Hopkins will turn his focus to the World Hockey Championships, which start on May 4 in Denmark.

Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) will be back in the lineup Thursday against the Golden Knights, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Look for Nugent-Hopkins to reprise his role in the top six and on the power play. Despite the Oilers experiencing a tumultuous 2017-18 campaign overall, RNH has quietly managed 22 goals and 23 assists through 60 games for his best rate of offensive production since factoring into a scoring play in 84 percent of his appearances as a rookie.

Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) won't play Monday against the Wild, but hopes to play in Edmonton's final two games.

EDGE Analysis

After returning from a different injury, Nugent-Hopkins was moved to the wing alongside Connor McDavid and took off. In 14 games he's tallied 14 points, but unfortunately for fantasy owners he's banged up again. However, at least the fact that the 24-year-old hopes to play in the Oilers' final two contests is an encouraging sign for fantasy players.

Nugent-Hopkins has confirmed that he will play in the World Hockey Championships, Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 24-year-old center has been continually hitting the scoresheet since returning on Mar. 3 from injury (ribs) -- he has 14 points in the 14 games since then (six goals, eight assists). RNH is still awaiting word as to if he will pair with Connor McDavid for the tournament in Denmark; but the plans to play prove that his current injury (lower body) is minor.

Nugent-Hopkins (lower body) won't skate against Calgary on Saturday, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although it's unclear when Nugent-Hopkins suffered the lower-body injury, he'll miss his first game since Mar. 1 -- which is unfortunate as he's been on fire during the healthy stretch, scoring six goals and notching eight assists in 14 games. Michael Cammalleri should draw in while he's absent, and his next chance of returning will be Monday against Minnesota.

Nugent-Hopkins is questionable for Saturday's road game against the Flames due to a lower-body injury that's been lingering for two weeks, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Matheson, Nugent-Hopkins still is likely to play Saturday since he took to the ice for morning skate, but it does seem like the talented centerman's status could come down to pregame warmups. RNH has been playing through the injury, but you wouldn't know it based on his point-per-game output over the last 14 contests in March.

Nugent-Hopkins scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

He also chipped in three shots and two blocked shots, while escaping with only a minus-1 rating in the blowout. Nugent-Hopkins has taken full advantage of his placement on Connor McDavid's wing since returning to the ice from a rib injury in early March, scoring six goals and 14 points in the last 13 games.
