See you in February, maybe.

The Oilers reported that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will miss the next ‘three to four weeks‘ recovering from his shoulder injury sustained in Monday’s game versus the Blackhawks. It appeared in suffering the injury that RNH lost an edge and crashed into the boards at the United Center.

However long he’s injured, don’t rush him back.  Missing a month’s worth of time might keep him from winning the Calder, but rushing him back could unnecessarily truncate his career.
