Darnell Nurse focused on earning a spot with the Oilers

Darnell Nurse will either play in the National Hockey League, or he’ll go back to the junior ranks. Nurse doesn’t turn 20 years of age until Feb. 4, 2015, so he isn’t eligible to play in the minors. So, again, the only options are sticking with the Edmonton Oilers, or going back to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the OHL. At an imposing 6’4″ and 205 pounds, he certainly...

The Edmonton Oilers’ need for defensemen

As it has been said for the past years, the Oilers do not need any more help with their offense. After drafting three straight first overall forwards, their struggles are now coming from a lack of strong defense. With Darnell Nurse potentially filling in a huge role for their defense, it looks to be a step in the right direction. The Toronto Maple Leafs are now considering trading...
