  • Draisaitl scored his seventh goal of the season and assisted on another in Sunday's win over the Bruins. Draisaitl has been split up from superstar forward Connor McDavid and centered the third line alongside Ryan Strome and Drake Caggiula. He turned in one of his best performances of the season Sunday, so it looks like he's found a new gig for the time being. The German forward continues to be a lethal fantasy threat and has racked up two goals and five points in his last four contests. The 22-year-old has 19 points and a plus-5 rating through 20 games for an Oilers team that's been up-and-down of late.

  • Draisaitl scored a goal and added an assist during Tuesday's 8-3 loss to St. Louis. The 22-year-old forward hadn't scored a goal in five games dating back to Nov. 9, so this was a welcomed offensive outburst. With six goals and 16 points through 17 games, Draisaitl has somewhat quietly remained a solid fantasy asset in all settings. Still, it's definitely at least mildly concerning that he hasn't been skating consistently with Connor McDavid at even strength of late.

  • Draisaitl collected an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals. The German winger has four points in his last three games after missing four games with a concussion. Reunited with Connor McDavid on the top line, the third overall pick from the 2014 NHL Entry Draft has a good chance of topping last season's career high of 77 points -- especially given that his 5.9 percent shot rate is well below the mean and likely to rebound -- so keep him in your lineup regularly.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Three assists Thursday

    Draisaitl dished out three assists and finished with a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Stars. Draisaitl assisted on goals by Connor McDavid and Patrick Maroon in the first period before adding a helper on Matthew Benning's third-period game-winner with 2:27 to play. McDavid rightfully gets a lot of the credit for Edmonton's offensive success since the start of last season, but Draisaitl's been a terrific Robin to the MVP's Batman with 83 point in 87 games over that stretch.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Cleared to play Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Draisaitl (concussion) has been medically cleared and will suit up for Tuesday night's game in Pittsburgh, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports. Draisaitl returns to the Oilers' lineup after missing the last four contests and is expected to jump right back into his critical offensive role with the club. The German pivot fired 12 shots on goal and recorded three points in his only three games this year and is averaging 3:26 on the power play, making him an intriguing option in his return against a porous Penguins defense.
