News: Nurse was returned to his junior team at OHL Sault Ste. Marie on Friday. Impact: Nurse served as a healthy scratch for the Oilers for the first two games of the season before cracking the lineup for a pair of contests earlier this week. The 19-year-old likely would have remained with the club had he thrived in his first taste of NHL action, but he failed to make much of an impact, logging no points, five hits and a minus-2 rating over those two games. He'll likely spend the duration of the season at the junior level, though the Oilers could consider bringing him back in the second half.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Dallas Eakins confirmed that Nurse would be in the lineup Tuesday against the Kings, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Impact: The No. 7 overall pick of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Nurse had been a healthy scratch for the Oilers' first two games this season, but an injury to Jeff Petry will pave the way for him to make his NHL debut. It's unlikely that the Oilers will ask Nurse to be a direct replacement for Petry on the team's top pairing, so look for him to instead work in tandem with Mark Fayne.(RotoWire, )

News: Nurse could make his NHL debut Tuesday against the Kings. Impact: With several Oilers players still dealing with injuries after Saturday's loss to the Canucks, an opening could exist for Nurse to find his way into the lineup. He'd more than likely slot in as a member of the team's third pairing if he does find his way into the lineup.(RotoWire, )
