Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will miss Sunday's game versus the Arizona Coyotes and at least one more after that as he deals with a hand injury, the team announced.

The 26-year-old played nearly 19 minutes Saturday during Edmonton's win over the Vegas Golden Knights, so it's unknown when he suffered the injury.

Sam Gagner has moved into Nugent-Hopkins' spot centering the Oilers' second line, according to team play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels.

Nugent-Hopkins has notched five goals and 10 assists in 25 games this season.
