Nail Yakupov will look to put last year's troubles behind him and find a way to help the Oilers this season after a sophomore slump of major proportions.
A promising rookie season in 2012 brought on high hopes for the teenage Russian star, but Yakupov failed to find the net often last year and was a major liability on defense. To go with his meagre 24 points and -33 rating, a cold war raged throughout the year with his coach Dallas Eakins. Trade rumors, negative comments in the media and visits from Yakupov’s agent to Edmonton created an off-ice circus to go along with Yakupov's on-ice troubles. But considering the elite, breathtaking skill level of the 5'11, 184 pound forward, a bounce back season is more likely than not. Aug 17 - 4:34 PM
