Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Productive in winOctober 13, 2021 | 11:58 PM
Nurse logged an assist, eight hits, six shots on goal and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Canucks. If you need a representative example of what Nurse brings, his stat line Wednesday is a good place to start. The 26-year-old defenseman also logged 32:24 of ice time, leading the team by a wide margin. Nurse should continue to function as a No. 1 defenseman, although he'll likely be overshadowed by Tyson Barrie in scoring production due to the latter's more significant power-play role. Expect Nurse to be a solid scoring option while adding well over 100 hits and blocked shots each.
