Leon Draisaitl News
Draisaitl (concussion) took part in the morning skate but will not play in Chicago.
Draisaitl will not be in the lineup tonight vs. the Blackhawks, but it sounds like he could be back in the Oilers lineup as soon as Saturday. His return will be huge for the struggling Oilers, so monitor his status leading up to this weekend’s meeting with the Flyers.
The Oilers have placed Leon Draisaitl (concussion) on IR.
Draisaitl missed Saturday’s game vs. Ottawa and has already been ruled out for Tuesday’s contest. Draisaitl’s move to IR is likely retroactive to October 11th, when he first missed practice. The move shouldn’t have any affect on when he returns to the lineup.
Draisaitl (concussion) will miss his second straight game on Tuesday.
Draisaitl missed practice on Monday and will miss his second game in a row on Tuesday. The Oilers’ star forward remains day-to-day and the Oilers will re-evaluate him before deciding whether or not he will travel with the team on their upcoming road-trip.
Draisaitl is dealing with concussion-like symptoms in addition to his facial injury.
Draisaitl (eye) will be held out of the lineup on Saturday.
Draisaitl has missed three practices in a row and will be held out of the lineup with an eye injury that he suffered when he was high-sticked on Monday. With Drasaitl out, Kailer Yamamoto is expected to play on the Oilers’ top line.
The Oilers have signed Leon Draisaitl to an eight-year extension worth $68.0M ($8.5M AAV).
The Oilers have recalled Leon Draisaitl from Bakersfield (AHL).
Draisaitl, 20, has been recalled because the Oilers are in need of a top-6 forward. Draisaitl has scored one goal with one assist in six games with Bakersfield and many reports suggest that Draisaitl has been the Condors’ best forward this season. He is expected to make his season debut tonight on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall.
The Oilers have officially sent Leon Draisaitl back to the WHL.
Draisaitl, 19, opened the season as the Oilers’ second line centre. The experiment did not really go as planned. He registered nine points (2G / 7A) in 37 games and now heads back to the Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL. It is best for Draisaitl’s development, especially in a tough year for Edmonton.
Draisaitl (illness) is questionable for Tuesday’s game vs. Los Angeles.
Draisaitl did not practice on Monday and his status for Tuesday’s game vs. the Kings is up in the air. Monitor his status during the Oilers’ morning skate on Tuesday.
Draisaitl will centre Taylor Hall and Teddy Purcell on Friday.
Drasaitl has a career-high ice-time of 15:22, but he will likely top that tonight while playing with Hall and Purcell. He has five points (2G / 3A) with a minus-6 rating in the first 19 games of his NHL career.
Draisaitl will play his tenth game on Wednesday, burning his first year of his Entry Level Contract (ELC).
Draisaitl, 19, scored his first NHL goal last Friday and sits with three points (1G / 2A) in hie first nine NHL games. Game 39 becomes the new deadline, if he goes back to junior before that time he will lose the first year of his ELC, but none of his unrestricted free agent status.
