Injured Ryan Nugent-Hopkins To Be Held Out Of Tonight’s Game Against Dallas

On a scale of one to good, this is about minus 7.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins isn’t at morning skate today, and that’s because he was injured against the Canucks on Monday.  Word isn’t yet out as to what is injured, but it’s a certainty that he won’t be going in tonight’s game versus Dallas.

Rob nails it perfectly. One of the notes I had yesterday was Arcobello’s success with 4 and 14 when they were down in Oklahoma City to start the season. The Oilers hope a little of that rubs off on the first line tonight against Kari Lehtonen and the rest of the Dallas Stars.

I’m sure we’ll find out this afternoon what’s ailing Nugent-Hopkins, and for the love of all that is holy, I hope it’s something he can come back from in a hurry.

UPDATE:  According to several sources, he’s slated to be back Saturday.  

…although “short term shoulder trouble” doesn’t encourage me too much.
