Draisaitl will meet with the league for spearing San Jose's Chris Tierney on Tuesday, per the NHL Department of Player Safety.

After averaging .94 points per game during the regular season, Draisaitl has been completely invisible during the playoffs, as he has failed to register a point through four outings. The winger's ice time has steadily dropped in each contest -- from 20:10 in Game 1 down to 10:48 in Game 4 -- which is certainly a concern for fantasy owners. The NHL should announce any punishment for the 21-year-old prior to Thursday's matchup.
