by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl produced three assists and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.

Draisaitl played a big part in the Oilers' comeback Tuesday. He set up both of Dominik Kahun's tallies, as well as the game-tying power-play goal by Connor McDavid. The 25-year-old Draisaitl has been quite the playmaker recently with five helpers in the last two games. The German center has 10 goals, 23 assists, 55 shots on net and a plus-14 rating through 21 appearances.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Sets up pair of goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl recorded two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Flames.

Draisaitl played more of a supporting role in Saturday's episode of The Connor McDavid Show, but fantasy managers won't turn their noses up at a two-assist effort. The 25-year-old Draisaitl reached the 20-assist and 30-point mark with Saturday's contributions. The German superstar also has 52 shots on net and a plus-12 rating through 20 appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored twice on five shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

Draisaitl struck at even strength just 21 seconds after Jesse Puljujarvi scored, quickly pacing the Oilers to a 2-0 lead in the first period. The 25-year-old Draisaitl restored a two-goal lead in the second period with his power-play tally at 16:45. That one stood as the game-winner. Draisaitl is up to 10 goals, 28 points, 50 shots and a plus-12 rating through 18 contests this season.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Scores equalizer, assists on GWG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 3-1 win versus Ottawa. He also wo14 of 22 faceoffs (63.6 percent).

Draisaitl beat Matt Murray five-hole while stationed at the bottom of the right faceoff circle, tying the game with 4:49 left in the second period. He helped put the Oilers ahead 6:09 into the final frame, assisting on Tyler Ennis' game-winning goal. Draisaitl extended his point streak to 10 games (eight goals, 11 assists) and moved to within two points of teammate Connor McDavid for the NHL scoring lead.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Riding nine-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl produced an assist in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Flames.

Draisaitl saw a heavy dosage of the Mark Giordano and Rasmus Andersson defense pairing from the Flames, and his line with Dominik Kahun and Kailer Yamamoto was limited to just two assists. The one helper was enough to extend Draisaitl's point streak to nine games. In that span, the German superstar has seven tallies, 11 helpers and a plus-9 rating. He's at 23 points, a plus-11 rating and 35 shots on net through 13 contests overall.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Extends point streak with tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a goal on four shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Senators.

Draisaitl's first-period goal counted as the game-winner. It also gave him an eight-game point streak, though his run of multi-point outings ended at five. During his streak, the German has amassed a studly seven goals and 10 helpers. He's up to 22 points, a plus-12 rating and 34 shots in 12 contests this year. Draisaitl has lived up to his lofty fantasy draft position once again -- expect excellence in nearly every game the 25-year-old plays.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Goes off for six assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl recorded six assists, a plus-3 rating and won 19 of 25 faceoffs in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Senators.

Draisaitl distributed all six of his assists in the first 40 minutes of the game. Three of them came on the power play. He was one assist shy of matching a franchise record achieved three times by Wayne Gretzky. Even more surprisingly, Draisaitl didn't record a shot on goal in the contest. The huge outburst gives the German center 21 points (six goals, 15 helpers) in 11 games this season.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Two helpers in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl posted two assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Maple Leafs.

Draisaitl's goal streak ended at five games, but he was still productive Saturday. He set up Dominik Kahun for the opening tally in the first period and also helped Connor McDavid for the game-winner in overtime. Draisaitl remains very strong on the scoresheet with six goals, nine helpers, 30 shots on net and a plus-7 rating through 10 contests.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Six goals in last five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a pair of power-play goals on six shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Draisaitl extended his goal streak to five games when he got the Oilers on the board in the second period. He struck again in the third to tie the game 2-2, but it wasn't enough for a winning result. Draisaitl is on quite the hot streak, which has put his season numbers at 13 points, 29 shots and a plus-5 rating through nine contests. Even when he's not burning up the scoresheet like this, he's a must-start for fantasy managers.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Lights lamp in fourth straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a power-play goal and added an assist with two PIM in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to Winnipeg. He also won 14 of 21 faceoffs (66.7 percent).

Draisaitl beat Connor Hellebuyck five-hole from the right faceoff dot to open the scoring less than two minutes into the game. It was the fourth consecutive game with a goal for last season's NHL scoring leader, who also picked up an assist late in the third period. Draisaitl has hit the scoresheet in six of his first eight games this season, amassing four goals and seven assists to go with a plus-5 rating.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Last-second hero Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a goal on four shots and added an assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Jets.

Draisaitl's tally in the final second of the third period was the latest go-ahead goal in franchise history. It was a fitting finish to a back-and-forth game. The German center has amassed three goals, nine points, 21 shots on net and a plus-5 rating in seven appearances this season.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Strikes shorthanded in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a shorthanded goal in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Both of Draisaitl's goals this year have come against Toronto -- he may be sad to leave The Six for a two-game set in Winnipeg on Sunday and Tuesday. The German center opened the scoring Friday at 5:12 of the second period on a feed from Kailer Yamamoto. Through six games, Draisaitl has a healthy two goals, five helpers, 17 shots on nets and a plus-3 rating. Let Friday prove that he still has a touch while shorthanded after failing to record any of his 110 points last year with his team down a man.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Pots first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs.

The 25-year-old had five helpers through the Oilers' first four games but hadn't yet lit the lamp, an oversight he rectified midway through the third period in Toronto. Draisaitl has posted back-to-back 100-point campaigns, and while the truncated nature of the 2020-21 season will almost certainly end that streak, Draisaitl should still be among the league's scoring leaders.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Generosity on display
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl provided four assists (two on the power play), went plus-3, and won 15 of 21 faceoffs in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

Draisaitl opened the season with an assist in a 5-3 loss to the Canucks on Wednesday, but he was much more generous Thursday. He now has five helpers through two games. The German superstar has also won 66.7 percent of his faceoffs early in the season, which is not a facet of his game he's known for. That percentage will drop over the course of the season, but he's got a good chance to at least match the 52.1 percent faceoff win rate he posted last year.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Collects helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl provided an assist and won 9 of 15 faceoffs in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.

Draisaitl had a helping hand on Kailer Yamamoto's second-period tally, the first of the year for the Oilers as a team. Other than that, the 25-year-old Draisaitl was held in check by the Canucks for most of the night. The reigning MVP had 110 points in 71 contests last season, but fantasy managers may have to wait until Thursday's rematch with the Canucks for Draisaitl to pop off.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Wins Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl was named the winner of the Hart Tophy as the NHL's MVP as well as the winner of the Ted Lindsay Award as the league's most outstanding player as voted by his peers Monday.

Draisaitl was exceptional in 2019-20, leading the league in scoring with an absurd 43 goals and 110 points in just 71 regular-season contests. The 24-year-old pivot has now scored at least 43 goals and 105 points in back-to-back campaigns, and there's no reason to believe he won't be able to repeat those feats in 2020-21, making him a surefire top-five fantasy pick heading into next year's drafts.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Factors in on three goals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl netted two goals on six shots and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 3.

Draisaitl twice erased one-goal deficits with his tallies. He also shot off Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford's pads to set up Connor McDavid's power-play tally late in the second period. However, for the second time in the series, a three-point effort from Draisaitl went to waste as the Oilers couldn't hang onto the lead. The German superstar has three goals, three helpers, 10 shots and a plus-2 rating so far. He'll need to be at his best in Friday's Game 4 if the Oilers are to avoid elimination.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Three points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a goal and added two assists in a 6-4 loss to Chicago on Saturday in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

The goal and one of the helpers came on the power play. Unfortunately, the Oil just couldn't overcome a poor start and horrible defense. Draisaitl may have put up loads of offense, but he won just 48 percent of his draws (10-of-21) against a more experienced Chicago crew.
