Nugent-Hopkins sits out third period

Oilers rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins appeared to re-aggravate his left injured shoulder during Monday night's 6-3 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto.

According to the Edmonton Journal, the 18-year-old, who had missed 13 games due to the injury in January, missed the remainder of the third period after he was hit by Leafs enforcer Mike Brown early in the period and did not return.

Oilers assistant coach Ralph Krueger, the man in charge on Monday after head coach Tom Renney took a puck in the head during the morning skate, mentioned that Nugent-Hopkins' absence in the final period was only precautionary.

The young forward is expected to be re-evaluated back in Edmonton to determine if the injury will cause him to miss more contests.

In 40 games with the Oilers this season, Nugent-Hopkins has collected 13 goals and 22 assists for 35 points.
