Top Leon Draisaitl News

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Helps out on power play

    Draisaitl logged a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 win over the Canucks in Game 7.

    Draisaitl has yet to be held off the scoresheet through two rounds of the playoffs. He kept the streak alive with a secondary helper on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' second-period tally, which was the game-winner. Draisaitl is up to eight goals, 16 assists, 12 power-play points, 45 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 12 playoff contests.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Keeps rolling with two helpers

    Draisaitl produced two assists, two hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Canucks in Game 6.

    Draisaitl set up the Oilers' first and last goals, scored by Dylan Holloway and Evander Kane, respectively. The pair of helpers extended Draisaitl's playoff point streak to 11 contests, during which he has eight goals and 15 assists. He's added 42 shots on net, 10 PIM and a plus-2 rating this postseason. Draisaitl also became the third-fastest player in NHL history to 100 playoff points, doing so in just 60 appearances. Only Wayne Gretzky (46 games) and Mario Lemieux (50 games) did it faster.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Point streak at 10 games

    Draisaitl logged an assist, two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Canucks in Game 5.

    Draisaitl extended his point streak to 10 games, though this was just the second time in that span he's been held to a single point. The 28-year-old has often looked like the Oilers' best player in the postseason, racking up eight goals, 13 helpers, 41 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating. He's earned 11 of his points with the man advantage and should continue to see significant ice time in all situations.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Another two-point effort

    Draisaitl scored a power-play goal on four shots, added an assist and logged four hits in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks in Game 4.

    Draisaitl earned his eighth multi-point effort in nine playoff contests. He finished off a Connor McDavid pass for the opening tally in the first period and set up Evan Bouchard's game-winning goal in the final minute of the third. Draisaitl is up to eight goals, 20 points, 39 shots on net and a plus-2 rating this postseason, ranking first in the league in points and third in goals.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Two points in loss

    Draisaitl scored a power-play goal on five shots, dished an assist and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks in Game 3.

    Draisaitl got the Oilers within a goal in the second period and helped out on Evan Bouchard's tally in the third, but it wasn't enough. The 28-year-old Draisaitl has multiple points in seven of eight playoff contests, with the lone exception being the Oilers' 1-0 win over the Kings in Game 4 of the first round. He's at seven goals, 11 helpers, 35 shots on net, eight PIM and a plus-3 rating this postseason.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Fills stat sheet Friday

    Draisaitl scored a power-play goal on four shots, dished three assists, added two PIM and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks in Game 2.

    Not bad for a guy who was considered a game-time decision after dealing with cramping issues in Wednesday's Game 1 and skipping practice Thursday. Draisaitl was involved in all of the Oilers' goals, including scoring their first one of the game. He was listed on the first line with Connor McDavid rather than centering his own line, though both players shared faceoff duties. Draisaitl is up to six goals, 10 assists, 30 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through seven playoff outings, and he's yet to be held off the scoresheet this postseason.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Expected to play Friday

    Draisaitl (undisclosed) is warming up and is expected to suit up against the Canucks for Game 2 on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Draisaitl missed a morning skate after dealing with cramping issues during Wednesday's Game 1 loss. Fortunately for Edmonton, he shouldn't miss any additional time. The star forward has five goals and 12 points through six games this postseason. Draisaitl tallied two assists in Game 1 against Vancouver.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Grabs two helpers

    Draisaitl recorded a pair of assists in Wednesday's 5-4 Game 1 loss to Vancouver. According to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, Draisaitl was dealing with cramps in the second period before returning in the third.

    Draisaitl managed just 16:43 of ice time due to his cramping issue, his lowest total during a game this postseason. Still, the world-class center has registered at least a point in all six playoff contests, racking up a combined five goals and seven helpers, including eight power-play points.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Questionable for Game 2

    Draisaitl (undisclosed) is day-to-day and questionable for Game 2 against Vancouver on Friday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports Thursday.

    Draisaitl dealt with a cramping issue during the second period of Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Canucks, though he was able to return in the third frame. However, the 28-year-old forward then missed Thursday's morning skate, per Tony Brar of Oilers TV. Draisaitl's value to the Oilers can't be overstated. He has five goals and 12 points through six playoff outings. If he's unable to play and Adam Henrique (lower body) returns after missing Game 1, then perhaps Henrique will serve as Edmonton's second-line center. However, if neither forward is available, then Ryan McLeod might be moved into that top-six role.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Two goals to clinch series

    Draisaitl scored a pair of goals on a team-high six shots in Wednesday's 4-3 Game 5 victory over the Kings.

    Draisaitl tied the game 2-2 midway through the second period with a power-play goal before putting Edmonton ahead just a few minutes later with a second tally, beating David Rittich with a one-timer off a Connor McDavid feed. It was an excellent start to the post-season for Draisaitl -- the 28-year-old center tallied five goals and 10 points in the Oilers' decisive five-game series victory.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Sets up decisive goal

    Draisaitl recorded a power-play assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Kings in Game 4.

    Draisaitl has eight points over four playoff outings, and six of those points have come with the man advantage. He set up Evan Bouchard's second-period marker Sunday, which was enough to give the Oilers a 3-1 lead in this first-round series. While Draisaitl's 5-on-5 offense has been lacking, he continues to be a reliable scorer while seeing big minutes in the top six and on the power play.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Three-point effort in Game 3 win

    Draisaitl scored twice on four shots, added an assist, went plus-2, blocked two shots and logged two PIM in Friday's 6-1 win over the Kings in Game 3.

    Draisaitl's first goal was at even strength, while his other two points were on the power play. The 28-year-old has been in peak form with three goals, four helpers, 15 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through three playoff contests. With the Oilers leading the series 2-1, Draisaitl is likely to remain on the second line rather than moving up to play alongside Connor McDavid.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Two more points in loss

    Draisaitl logged two assists (one on the power play), eight shots on net and two hits in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Kings in Game 2.

    Draisaitl set up goals by Brett Kulak and Zach Hyman in the contest. Three of Draisaitl's four points over two playoff games have come on the power play. He's added 11 shots on net, three blocked shots and a minus-1 rating. Draisaitl continues to center the second line, but the 28-year-old could eventually move to play alongside Connor McDavid if the Kings continue to have success, as the Oilers often put their best players together when playing from behind.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Earns two power-play points

    Draisaitl scored a goal on three shots and added an assist in Monday's 7-4 win over the Kings in Game 1.

    Both of Draisaitl's points came on the power play in the high-scoring win. The center had five multi-point efforts over his last 11 games of the regular season. He finished 2023-24 with 41 goals, 106 points, 39 power-play points, 217 shots on net and a plus-26 rating. For now, Draisaitl will center his own line, and that will likely continue unless the Oilers fall behind in a series.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Gets Thursday's game off

    Draisaitl (rest) will be a healthy scratch Thursday against Colorado, according to Oilers play-by-by announcer Jack Michaels.

    Draisaitl will finish the 2023-24 regular season with 41 goals and 106 points in 81 contests. He's just resting before the playoffs, so Draisaitl should resume his normal duties in a top-six capacity and as part of Edmonton's first power-play unit in Game 1 of the postseason.

That was Draisaitl's first multi-game slump since Dec. 14-16. The 28-year-old center is up to 41 goals, 65 assists, 215 shots on net, 58 hits, 76 PIM and a plus-27 rating through 80 contests overall.

The 28-year-old center is at 104 points (39 on the power play), 210 shots on net, 53 hits, 76 PIM and a plus-27 rating through 77 outings overall.
