  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Collects assist in loss

    Nurse notched an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers in Game 3.

    Nurse was questionable heading into Thursday's game after leaving Monday's Game 1 with a hip injury. The 29-year-old defenseman snapped his four-game slump with a helper on a Philip Broberg tally in the third period. Nurse has underwhelmed this postseason with four helpers, a minus-14 rating, 50 blocked shots, 45 hits and 32 shots on net through 21 appearances, though he remains in a top-four role.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Slated to play in Game 3

    Nurse (hip) is expected to play in Game 3 against Florida on Thursday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports Wednesday.

    Nurse was initially questionable after sustaining a hip injury during Monday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers, and that concern only grew after he missed Wednesday's practice, per Reid Wilkins of 630 CHED. However, coach Kris Knoblauch expects the 29-year-old Nurse to be available Thursday. Nurse has struggled in the 2024 playoffs, recording just three assists and posting a terrible minus-15 rating over 20 appearances.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Game 3 status uncertain

    Nurse, who reportedly suffered a hip injury in Game 2 on Monday, is still being evaluated. Coach Kris Knoblauch told reporters, "Haven't spoken to our medical staff. I'll be seeing them in about 15 minutes, and I'll get their report," per Tracey Myers of NHL.com.

    Nurse offered little in the way of fantasy impact in Game 2, posting zero shots, zero hits and just one block in his limited 4:20 of ice time. If the veteran blueliner can't go Thursday for Game 3, Cody Ceci figures to rejoin the lineup after serving as a healthy scratch Monday.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Big impact in Game 4 win

    Nurse logged an assist, 12 hits and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Stars in Game 4.

    Nurse has been the target of some ire for his poor play in the playoffs, and he got off to an ugly start in this game. He was on the ice for both of the Stars' first-period tallies, including one that banked into the net off his body. Nurse was able to rebound, picking up a helper on a Ryan McLeod goal, and he followed up with a huge physical performance for the rest of the game. Nurse has just three assists with an ugly minus-12 rating through 16 playoff contests, but he's added 35 hits, 37 blocked shots and 31 shots on net while playing in a top-four role. That non-scoring production still gives him a path to relevance in DFS formats.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Bags power-play assist

    Nurse notched a power-play assist, four shots on goal, three hits and two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks in Game 3.

    Nurse snapped a four-game dry spell with his helper on a Mattias Ekholm tally in the first period. The 29-year-old Nurse has been limited to two assists over eight playoff outings, and he's added 17 shots on net, 13 hits, 22 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating. He's played on the second pairing, with Ekholm leapfrogging Nurse for a spot alongside Evan Bouchard on the top pairing. Nurse can still add some physicality, but his offense is likely to be limited with less ice time.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Gathers helper Friday

    Nurse logged an assist, three shots on goal and six blocked shots in Friday's 6-1 win over the Kings in Game 3.

    Nurse snapped a three-game dry spell by helping out on Leon Draisaitl's first-period tally. The 29-year-old Nurse posted 32 points in 81 regular-season contests in 2023-24, his lowest point total in six years. He remains a physical force with 172 blocked shots, 168 hits and 79 PIM, but he may not contribute much offense in the postseason.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Will play Thursday

    Nurse (rest) is drawing back into the lineup Thursday versus Colorado, per the NHL media site.

    Nurse was a healthy scratch in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Arizona so that he could get some rest before the playoffs. He has 10 goals, 32 points, 79 PIM, 181 shots, 167 hits and 169 blocks in 80 appearances this season while serving in a top-four capacity.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Resting Wednesday

    Nurse (rest) will be a healthy scratch Wednesday versus Arizona, per Mark Spector of Sportsnet.

    Nurse has 10 goals, 32 points, 79 PIM, 168 hits and 169 blocks in 80 contests this season. Resting the defenseman will interrupt his four-game scoring streak (one goal, six points), but it will help keep him fresh for the playoffs. Nurse might draw back into the lineup for the season finale against Colorado on Thursday.
