Ryan Nugent-Hopkins found the back of the net in Edmonton's 4-3 victory on Wednesday.
That was Nugent-Hopkins' 30th game of the season. He's on pace to get 45 points this season after recording 34 points in 55 contests in 2015-16. That's not bad, but it's less than you would expect from a former first overall pick. Feb 23 - 7:09 AM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins does not have a point in his last six games.

Nugent-Hopkins has 11 goals and 26 points in 56 games, not the best stats in the league from a former first overall pick (It's fortunate that it is not the worst either as former teammate Nail Yakupov has only six points). Frustration may be setting in as Nugent-Hopkins had seven penalty minutes which included a fight with Vinnie Hinostroza of Chicago. He is not worth owning in any league unless your pool requires you to take a player with a hyphenated name.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, underachieving this season, scored in overtime Monday night to give the Edmonton Oilers a 3-2 victory over the Blues in St. Louis.

It was only Nugent-Hopkins' sixth goal of the season but the Oilers will take it. Connor McDavid assisted on the goal, his 28th helper of the season. The Oilers trailed 1-0 and 2-1 before Patrick Maroon tied the game 2-2 at 5:47 of the third period. Maroon's goal was his ninth of the season. Also scoring for Edmonton was Tyler Pitlick (eighth). Leon Draisaitl assisted on the Pitlick and Maroon goals and now has 16 on the season.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is seeing third line time with Taylor Beck and Tyler Pitlick.

Nugent-Hopkins has only five goals and 15 points in 33 games this season, not something you would expect out of a number one overall selection. Perhaps all the shoulder problems he has had early in his career has taken its toll as those are serious injuries for hockey players, or perhaps he just hasn't panned out like he should have. We at Rotoworld thought the Oilers should have drafted Adam Larsson first in 2011 but they took Nugent-Hopkins. They probably regret it as it cost them Taylor Hall in the off-season and we are sure that they would rather have had Hall and Larsson rather than Nugent-Hopkins and Larsson on the current squad.

Oilers coach Todd McLellan feels Ryan Nugent-Hopkins deserves more recognition for his defensive work.

"He’s not going to put up a lot of points or score lots but he does a lot of good things all over the rink and doesn’t get enough credit for it," said McLellan. "He plays in every situation — on the power play, killing penalties, important face-offs, regular-strength shifts — and he’s gone against some of the best players in the world." While that's fair, it's interesting to hear McLellan talk about Nugent-Hopkins not scoring much. Nugent-Hopkins is a former first overall pick that had 52 points as a rookie, but has never really grown offensively beyond that strong start. At this point he's needed in less of an offensive role behind Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, although Nugent-Hopkins still has four assists in seven games.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins registered two assists in Edmonton's 4-1 victory over Washington Wednesday night.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has yet to get a point in the Oilers first two games.

The Oilers have found the back of the net 12 times in the first two games but Nugent-Hopkins has yet to hear his name over the loud speaker. He also has struggled at the face off dot, winning only 29 percent of his draws. While it has been only a couple of games, the face off losses have to be of concern to the Oilers. Look for a 50 point season from RNH.
