  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Picks up assist in win

    Draisaitl notched an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Kings in Game 7.

    Draisaitl was a game-time decision Saturday, and he appeared to be laboring at times due to the ankle injury he suffered in Game 6. The 26-year-old was still able to log 21:39 of ice time, and he picked up the secondary helper on Cody Ceci's second-period goal. Draisaitl finished the first round with five goals, four helpers, 17 shots on net and a minus-1 rating in seven contests. He'll look to add to those totals in the second round.

Through six playoff contests, Draisaitl has five tallies, three assists, 16 shots on net and a minus-3 rating.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Sitting out regular-season finale

    Draisaitl won't play in Friday's season finale against the Canucks, Bob Stauffer of Oilers Radio Network reports.

    Both Draisaitl and Connor McDavid will be rested so they can come into the playoffs fresh and healthy. The former finishes the season with an even 55 goals and 55 assists in 80 games, having set a new career high in goals while tying his career-best 110 points from the 2019-20 campaign.

    Draisaitl scored a power-play goal on two shots and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Wild.

The 26-year-old is up to 51 tallies, 102 points, 257 shots on net and a plus-17 rating through 73 appearances this season.
