The Edmonton Oilers had the first overall pick at last year’s NHL draft and they wasted no time selecting dynamic winger Nail Yakupov.

The 19-year-old jumped directly to the NHL following the lockout and has made it clear he belongs. In his first 20 games, Yakupov has six goals and 12 points.

THN’s Ryan Kennedy sat down with the Russian to discuss life in the NHL, road trips and more.
