NHL: Historic evening for Draisaitl
In a historic evening, Germany’s ice hockey superstar Leon Draisaitl has achieved his 50th gate and his 51st template in the current season of NHL. At the 6: 1 of the Edmonton Oilers at the Anaheim Ducks, the native of Cologne first set board Kulak the 5: 1, shortly thereafter he hit the final score.
Draisaitl exceeded the 100-point brand for the third time. In addition, for the second time he reached 50 hits, this was in the jersey of the Oilers so far only the Icon Wayne Gretzky (8), Jari Kurri (4) and Glenn Anderson succeeded. In the current scorer list of NHL is Draisaitl, who had scored exactly 50 goals in 2018/19, with 101 points just behind Teammollege Connor McDavid (105) rank two.
“I’m proud, I am very happy,” Draisaitl said after the game, but stressed, his personal success would not be possible without his teammates. “This shows how great my teammates are, they are it that will bring me into the right situations that give me the puck at the right moment. We are a selfless group and it’s just fun to be a part of it.”
Edmont’s Coach Jay Woodcraft was full of praise over Draisaitl. “What a performance! It’s so special to reach 50 goals and exceed 100 points,” he said. For the Oilers it was the tenth victory in the past 13 games, the fourth in series and at the same time the first on foreign ice since the first March. “It looks like we move in the right direction,” Draisaitl said.
