RNH in middle with Smyth and Yakupov at OIL morning skate. Looks like RNH is in for Preds game.
RNH missed the Oilers last two games with strep throat, but he is ready to return tonight. After scoring 52 points in 62 games last season RNH has struggled this year only recording 11 points in his first 27 games.
Looks like RNH will also be put through the shift simulation test before practice...
Nugent-Hopkins drew in shortly after doing one of these simulations last time. At this point, it is only a matter of time until he draws in. Before getting hurt, RNH scored 13 goals and 35 points in his first 40 NHL games.
