News: Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) was on the ice for morning skate and looks likely to play Friday against the Canucks, TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports. Impact: Nugent-Hopkins was forced out of back-to-back contests earlier this week with the injury, but his return to morning skate, as well as the Oilers' demotion of Bogdan Yakimov, bodes well for his chances of returning to action. However, it does appear Nugent-Hopkins won't return to his usual spot as the pivot of the top line, as coach Dallas Eakins chose to adjust his trios of forwards at morning skate. Instead, look for Nugent-Hopkins to center the second line, with Teddy Purcell and Nail Yakupov flanking him on either side.(RotoWire, )

News: Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) will not play Wednesday against the Coyotes. Impact: The Oilers apparently don't believe that Nugent-Hopkins' injury is all that serious, but it's troublesome enough to keep him out for both ends of the team's back-to-back. Wednesday's demotion of Bogdan Yakimov to AHL Oklahoma City would appear to signal that Nugent-Hopkins could be ready to play Friday against Carolina.(RotoWire, )

News: Nugent-Hopkins (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Kings, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Impact: Nugent-Hopkins is still feeling sore after taking a hit from Vancouver's Dan Hamhuis on Saturday night, forcing him out of Monday's practice. Along with RNH, fellow top-liner Jordan Eberle will sit out with an undisclosed injury, leaving the Oilers a bit short-handed on offensive talent.(RotoWire, )

News: Nugent-Hopkins has been labeled day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, but could play Tuesday, Oilers play-by-play man Jack Michaels reports. Impact: RNH, Jordan Eberle, Teddy Purcell and Darnell Nurse are all in that same category, with the Oilers withholding all information about their ailments. However, the 2011 No. 1 overall pick had his first NHL fight Saturday against Dan Hamhuis of the Avs, and it's possible that he's banged up a little as a result. He's got an assist and a minus-2 rating through two games thus far.(RotoWire, )
