03:34 PM ET 02.06 | Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will not be available for the team's game against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night due to injury. Nugent-Hopkins was administered a hard check during Monday night's overtime loss against the Vancouver Canucks and is still sore. Head coach Ralph Krueger stated that the player could have participated in Wednesday night's game but the organization didn't want to risk it if he was not 100 percent. With Nugent-Hopkins out of the lineup, it is expected that AHL call-up Mark Arcobello will take his place on the top-line with Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle.

Aren't they all? Seen Charlie Sheen lately? Lindsey Lohan? Saw Ozzy a while back. Scary! Good thing he doesn't know what planet he's on most of the time.

RNH, he looks like a high school sophomore. Way too fragile for prime time. The kid better grow up fast and put some meat on those bones or his career may take a trip south. We'll see what 5'9'' (when wearing skates and 165 lbs. when wet) Mike Portobello can do in his place.

BTW, I saw this Portobello kid play against our Grand Rapids Griffins and the Chicago Wolves. Let me tell you! He ain't no mushroom. The kid has spunk and good hockey sense. Reminds me of Brian Gionta and Marty SL.

3 of the 4 Oiler centers are out. Wish it was the Flames we were playing tonight.

Another small forward for the Oilers. What Edmonton needs is a woman GM. They know size matters.
