He didn't suit up in Monday's win over the Flyers and head coach Mike Yeo won't dress him for tonight's game. Yakupov continues to be a disappointment, as he's managed just three goals and three assists in 31 games this season. Carl Gunnarsson and Dmitrij Jaskin will also watch from the press box.

Nail Yakupov will likely be scratched on Thursday.

Yakupov served as an extra in Thursday's practice. That would end his run of six straight games in the lineup. The 2012 first overall pick has three goals and six points in 27 games this season.
Jan 19 - 4:22 PM

Nail Yakupov will skate on the second line against the Sharks on Saturday night.

He'll flank Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko on the left. And, if we're being honest, this sounds like a dynamic line. With three goals and six points in 24 games this season, now's as good a time as any to get going.
Jan 14 - 8:15 PM

Nail Yakupov (illness) returned to action on Saturday.

It was a typical Yakupov game as he was held off the score sheet. The first overall pick in 2012 has been a bust, both in St. Louis this season with three goals and six points in 22 games, and his career in Edmonton. If he was in your lineup...sorry.
Jan 8 - 3:19 AM

It'll be due to illness that Nail Yakupov will be scratched against the Hurricanes on Thursday.

It's unfortunate that he's sick, but he's been a disappointment in St. Louis nevertheless. He's posted three goals and six points in 21 games thus far.

Nail Yakupov will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Yakupov plauyed in St. Louis' last four games, but that streak will come to an end tonight. Ty Rattie is expected to join him in the press box, while Alex Pietrangelo misses the game because of an illness.

Nail Yakupov will face his one time Oiler teammates Monday.

Yakupov was the first overall pick in 2012 by the Oilers but it was a disaster for him in the Alberta capital and he was dealt for a conditional third round pick before the season began. He needs to score 15 goals this season if the Oilers want to get a second round pick in 2018 instead but with only three at this stage of the season, it is unlikely that will happen.
