The Edmonton Oilers will be without their top rookie again.

The team announced at practice Tuesday that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will be out of the lineup for the next seven to 10 days as he deals with a sprained shoulder.

Nugent-Hopkins injured his shoulder after getting hit by Leafs forward Mike Brown early in the third period of Monday's 6-3 loss in Toronto. He did not return to the game.

The hit aggravated the same shoulder he injured back on Jan. 2, when he slid into the boards in a game against the Blackhawks.

"It's the same shoulder, but a different injury," Nugent-Hopkins said on the team's Twitter account. "It's not close to my first shoulder injury. Hopefully, I can be back soon."

The Oilers recalled left-winger Magnus Paajarvi from the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League.

Nugent-Hopkins was leading the team in scoring at the time of the injury, and currently sits fourth on the team.

Nugent-Hopkins missed 13 games as he recovered from his first shoulder injury.
