Edmonton C Nugent-Hopkins leaves with injury

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has left the Edmonton Oilers’ game against

the Chicago Blackhawks with an upper-body injury.

The Oilers announced the injury during the second period Monday

night but it was unclear when it occurred.

The No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, Nugent-Hopkins

began the day leading NHL rookies with 35 points (13 goals, 22

assists).
