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.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has only two goals this season.

Nugent-Hopkins has 55 shots on goal and has yet to score in an even-man situation as both goals are on the power play. Nugent-Hopkins has been a strong penalty killer for the Oilers but that does not help you in fantasy.

Nugent-Hopkins opened the scoring with a power play goal at the 6:36 mark of the first period. Patrick Maroon and Adam Larsson also scored for the Oilers in this one. The 23-year-old has just six points in 11 games in 2016-17.

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.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was flanked by Benoit Pouliot and Jesse Puljujarvi at Tuesday's practice.

It was his first session in training camp after returning from the World Cup of Hockey as a member of Team North America. Nugent-Hopkins played well as a two-way pivot at the tournament, but Edmonton will be expecting much more offense from him in 2016-17. He posted 12 goals and 34 points in 55 games last year.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins isn't letting the trade rumors this off-season get to him.

"I try not to pay attention too much ... if it happens, it happens," he said. "I know it's definitely a different group than the one we finished with last season." Nugent-Hopkins has been linked to defensemen like Minnesota's Matt Dumba and Colorado's Tyson Barrie. He registered 12 goals and 34 points in 55 games with the Oilers last season.

There are rumors floating around that have Ryan Nugent-Hopkins being on the trading block with the Wild as a possible destination.

The Oilers badly need help on their blueline and the Wild need a center, so it's assumed that defenseman Matt Dumba will be the return for the former first overall pick in 2011. Nugent-Hopkins has been a disappointment since injuring his shoulder in his second NHL season and that is not a good injury to have for a hockey player. Nugent-Hopkins had 12 goals and 34 points in 55 injury-plagued games this past season so maybe he needs a fresh start as well. Stay tuned.
