The Edmonton Oilers had high hopes for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins when they drafted him first overall at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. His strong rookie campaign only solidified their belief in the young center and despite some early struggles this year, it's clear Nugent-Hopkins has all the tools to succeed in the NHL.  

THN’s Ryan Kennedy caught up with the Oilers sophomore to discuss what it will take for the Oilers to reach the next level, getting a taste of the American league, and more.
