Waking up with the Kings: October 15

Baby steps. After the overtime loss to Arizona and the win over Winnipeg, Darryl Sutter spoke about having taken “steps” in an effort to reach an appropriate early season level for a team coming off a third consecutive playoff run that ended in June. Did Los Angeles take a step in a 6-1 win on Tuesday over an Edmonton team that scratched Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Jordan Eberle and Jeff Petry, and started two defensemen who entered the game with a combined five games of NHL experience? Sure, why not. Of course, as any rational fan will tell you, don’t recalibrate expectations [...]

Edmonton Oilers hit by injuries and at least one terrible coaching decision as they prepare for Los Angeles

The worst-case scenario for the Edmonton Oilers this season is an injury to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. The team’s patchwork centre depth chart is a pretty big risk every night as-is, and any long-term injury to Nugent-Hopkins would leave the Oilers utterly …

Matheson: Do Oilers really need Nugent-Hopkins dropping the mitts? (with video)

There was a far better chance that Edmonton Oilers’ winger Matt Hendricks would, say, be throwing down with Zack Kassian Saturday in the Vancouver Canucks’ 44th home opener at Rogers Arena–to even a score in the past (remember that wild stick swing that broke Sam Gagner’s jaw?) than for a transgression in the present–but unbelieveably we had Ryan Nugent-Hopkins dropping the gloves with Canadian Olympic defenceman Dan Hamhuis in the third period.

#2 - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

Coming in as the Runner Up on our countdown for the second straight time, Nugent-Hopkins still shows elite-level skill, but has a ways to go before he can be considered an elite player.

MacKinnon: Nugent-Hopkins knows it's time for young Oilers to deliver

As he starts his fourth NHL season, No. 1 centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is eager to embrace the responsibility of dialing up his game and helping to drive the Oilers closer to success. For the first off-season in years, his once wonky left shoulder more than a year removed from corrective surgery, Nugent-Hopkins was able to throw himself intensely into fitness work, layering on some muscle and bulking up to 192 pounds.

Draisaitl earns No. 2 centre role with Oilers

In the end, it was always Leon Draisaitl’s job to lose. The third overall pick in June’s NHL entry draft wasn’t anywhere close to that through six pre-season auditions with the Edmonton Oilers, so Draisaitl, who turns 19 in three weeks, is going to be the tag-team partner for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

MacKinnon: Draisaitl clearing ‘the mud' when it comes to Oilers' centre situation

Right from the start, there has been some interesting theatre coming from Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins this training camp. On Day 1, he said there were two NHL centres on his club (the artist Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and the tradesman Boyd Gordon) and the coach had “no idea” who the other two would be.

Tyler Pitlick plays alongside Hall, RNH - Tyler Pitlick (W) Edmonton Oilers

Tyler Pitlick got an opportunity to play alongside Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in Monday's preseason game.

Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins stand head-and-shoulders above the competition in a 3-1 Edmonton Oilers win

Edmonton’s best players were in fact its best players on Monday night. Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins not only keyed the offence but played dominant two-way games, games that put them well ahead of anybody else on the ice. Player …

Hall, Nugent-Hopkins step up in win

Exhibitions are a necessary evil to Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who don’t have to win over their coach Dallas Eakins, only the people paying good money in the seats for fall games that count only for team pride. RNH and Hall were the best thing on the ice, though, Monday as the Edmonton Oilers beat the Winnipeg Jets for the second time in pre-season, 3-1. Hall had two goals, both on Nugent-Hopkins’ feeds — one a Gretzkyesque pass that Hall buried for his first two exhibition scores. RNH, meanwhile, leads the Oilers with four pre-season points. One of his two pre-season goals...
