Draisaitl dazzled to the tune of a goal and two assists -- including a power-play helper -- in Tuesday's 6-4 road win over the Avalanche. With 16 goals and 21 assists through 31 games, Draisaitl is performing as expected given that he was the third overall pick from the 2014 draft. The German is a stud in his own right, but he gets to play with world-class pivot Connor McDavid to remain in the elite class of fantasy wingers.
Draisaitl garnered a secondary assist versus Calgary on Sunday. Draisaitl has been on a tear lately with eight points in his previous seven outings. The natural center appears to enjoy playing on the wing alongside Connor McDavid and should continue to fill that role as long as the offense keeps clicking.
Draisaitl scored two goals and added an assist in Friday's 7-2 win over the Wild. He also supplied five shots, a hit and a plus-4 rating in the rout. The tallies snapped a seven-game goal drought for Draisaitl, but the streaky winger has overall been enjoying life alongside Connor McDavid and now has 15 goals and 33 points in 29 games on the season.
Draisaitl dished out an assist and recorded 25:25 in Monday's loss to the Stars. Down by three goals, Draisaitl found Jujhar Khaira, who rang a back-hand goal past Anton Khudobin to cut the Stars' lead. Draisaitl now has an assist in four straight games. The 23-year-old also led the team in ice time since Connor McDavid (illness) sat out, but don't expect that to last once McDavid is healthy again.
Draisaitl scored a goal on four shots and added two assists in Tuesday's 6-2 victory over the Canadiens. Draisaitl now has seven goals in his last 10 games and wasted little time finding success with Connor McDavid after being reunited on Edmonton's top line. Given the production the Oilers saw Tuesday night, it would be surprising for them to change anything ahead of Saturday's contest with the Flames.
