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

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
