Nugent-Hopkins out at least 2 games with hand injury
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.
