He likes a little bit of everything, but catering to the musical tastes of all those in an NHL locker room is no easy task – just as Darnell Nurse, defenceman and locker room DJ for the Edmonton Oilers.
"It's tough being the DJ. You have to come with a good playlist before the game." Nurse has said of shouldering title. With a whole roster to please, Nurse's tastes and hobby of choice keep the masses happy.
"We've got a good mix of stuff in here."
With Hip-Hop and House as his genres of choice, Nurse was more than up to crafting a sample of what he's listening to these days.

"I'm a fan of multiple genres of music. I'll be on the plane sometimes, when we're flying back home, and when I'm trying to rest the mind a little bit, I'll put on a little Alanis Morissette. My mom and her sisters used to play that all the time when I was young."
