Description: Edmonton right wing Nail Yakupov isn't expected to play Tuesday night against Phoenix. SOURCE: Edmonton Journal
Insight: He'll be a healthy scratch. So far, the 20-year-old right wing hasn't lived up to expectations. Yakupov (six goals, eight assists) may need to go back to the minors for some extra seasoning.

Description: Edmonton right wing Nail Yakupov potted two goals Wednesday in a win over Calgary.
Insight: All those years of losing are finally paying off for Edmonton. By stockpiling the last three No. 1 overall picks (Taylor Hall, Mike Nugent-Hopkins and Yakupov), the Oilers have built a young core that should be good for many years to come. The future is now, Oilers fans.

Description: Oilers rookie forward Nail Yakupov had another clutch goal Wednesday in overtime against the Coyotes.
Insight: Yakupov had a game-tying goal last week with five seconds remaining against the Kings before Edmonton won in overtime and he memorably went sliding on his knees halfway across the ice. He was more reserved this time. Edmonton's celebration didn't last long since Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris got into a fight with the Oilers' Ryan Whitney. The 19-year-old Yakupov already has four goals in his first six NHL games.
 
1/23/2013 7:57:00 PM
Description: Edmonton had a pair of highly-touted youngsters score their first NHL goal Tuesday night against the Sharks. Nail Yakupov, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, was one of them.
Insight: Defenseman Justin Schultz was the other. Yakupov is getting significant playing time on the Oilers' second line and top power-play unit so he should be able to contribute solid fantasy numbers as a 19-year-old. Just don't expect a good plus/minus (-4 already).
