Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins out with illness

The Edmonton Oilers will be without one of their highly-skilled forwards Wednesday.

The team has announced that center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will not play against the San Jose Sharks at Rexall Place due to an illness. He will be replaced in the lineup by Teemu Hartikainen.

Nugent-Hopkins, the No. 1 selection at the 2011 NHL Draft, has two goals and nine assists in 27 games. Three of his 11 points have come in the past four games.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
