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.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Wins scoring title
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl has been awarded the Art Ross Trophy for leading the league in scoring with 110 points in 71 games this year.

Draisaitl has become a bonafide superstar over the past two seasons. The 24-year-old German burst onto the scene with 50 goals and 105 points in 82 games last year only to follow it up with an arguably even more impressive 43 goals and 67 assists in 71 games this campaign. He and teammate Connor McDavid will both be top-3 picks in the majority of fantasy formats next season.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Leading league in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl currently leads the NHL in scoring with 110 points (43 goals, 67 points) in 71 games.

The second-place player in the scoring race is actually Draisaitl's teammate, Connor McDavid, who's picked up 97 points in 64 points this campaign. That 13-point gap shows just how unbelievable the 24-year-old German has been in 2019-20. If the NHL ultimately resumes play and ends up handing out its yearly awards, Draisaitl will be a frontrunner for the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league's MVP.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl dished out a pair of assists in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Chicago.

Draisaitl set up one goal each by linemates Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Kailer Yamamoto as the Oilers tried to rally from 3-0 and 4-1 deficits. The NHL scoring leader, Draisaitl now has 43 goals and 67 assists for 110 points in 68 games. He'll take a four-game point streak (six goals, five assists) into Saturday's clash with Columbus.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Tacks on power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl recorded a power-play helper, four shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Stars.

The German center has compiled nine points and 15 shots in his last three outings. Draisaitl has a league-leading 108 points (43 goals, 65 assists) as well as 213 shots and 44 power-play points in 67 games this year.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Dismantles Predators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored four goals and dished an assist in Monday's 8-3 win over the Predators.

Draisaitl picked up his first career four-goal game, as well as his second five-point effort of the season. Just one of his tallies came on the power play. The massive performance set him at a new career high in points with 107 through 66 contests. He's got 43 goals, 64 helpers, 209 shots and a minus-6 rating this year. Draisaitl has virtually locked up the Art Ross with a massive lead in the points race.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Crosses 100-point threshold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a pair of power-play goals and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

Draisaitl's first-period tally got him to 100 points for the year, and he didn't stay there long. The German tallied again in the second and set up Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for the game-winner in the third. Draisaitl has 39 scores, 102 points, 202 shots and 42 power-play points in 65 outings this season. He should shatter his career-high 105-point output from last year, and another 50-goal campaign isn't out of the question, either.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Pots power-play tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a power-play goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.

The German recorded his 99th point and 40th power-play point -- both marks lead the league. Draisaitl has registered eight goals and eight helpers in his last nine outings. He's the front-runner for the Art Ross this year, and he leads Boston's David Pastrnak by 11 points.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl scored a power-play goal on six shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Draisaitl has seven tallies and eight assists over his last eight games, just one of many impressive runs of offense for the German this year. He's up to 36 goals, 98 points (39 on the power play) and 191 shots through 62 contests.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Nearing century mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl notched a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Wild.

Draisaitl is up to 35 goals and 97 points through 61 contests this year. He's just eight points shy of his career-high 105-point output from last year. The German center has posted a stunning six goals and 12 assists through 10 games in February -- few NHL defenses have found a way to contain him.

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

He opened the scoring for the Oilers in the first period, then set up Josh Archibald for the OT winner, chipping in a helper on Kailer Yamamoto's second period power-play tally in between. Draisaitl has found the scoresheet in five straight games and piled up a dazzling 11 goals and 33 points in 17 games since the calendar flipped to 2020, keeping him firmly in the lead in the NHL's scoring race.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Nine points on four-game streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

His current point streak stands at four games and nine points (four goals, five assists). Draisaitl has a stranglehold on the NHL scoring lead with 92 points and sits fourth in the goal chase with 33. His work is Hart-worthy, even playing on a team with Connor McDavid.

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Reaches 90-point threshold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Draisaitl recorded an assist in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.

Draisaitl reached the 90-point mark with the helper, his seventh point in the last three games. He's posted 32 goals, 58 assists, 174 shots and a minus-12 rating through 57 contests. The German needs 15 points to match last year's career-high output.

Draisaitl scored an empty-net goal and delivered three assists (two on the power play) in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Draisaitl now has 32 tallies, 89 points, 173 shots and 37 power-play points in 56 games. To make it even better, his third assist was his 400th career point, achieved in just 407 appearances.
