No Nuge is bad news for the Edmonton Oilers.

With pivots Shawn Horcoff and Eric Belanger already injured, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins became the latest centre iced Wednesday.

Nugent-Hopkins is once again having shoulder problems and won’t be available for tonight’s home game with the Dallas Stars (4-5-1).
