Darnell Nurse opened the season with a goal in Wednesday's 5-3 home loss against the Vancouver Canucks.
The goal was nice for Nurse, and he also added a plus-1 rating and four shots on net in his 25:05 of ice time across 27 shifts, most among the Edmonton rearguards. He also picked up three hits, and that's an area he really tends to help fantasy owners. Nurse registered 172 hits and 141 blocked shots across 71 games last season while only netting five goals and 33 points, as physicality is his calling card. He was the only player in the NHL last season to record at least 140 hits and blocked shots. Jan 14 1:45 am (EST)
