    Thought I'd get a new thread going as the old one hit 1k posts.

    Here's a recent video of his 19/20 highlights made by the Oilers media team:

    Leon did an interview along with fellow Germans Rieder, Grubauer and Kahun (via skype, zoom or whatever).
    There wasn't really that much information in there, but here are a couple more or less interesting or amusing tidbits.

    Leon said he's trying to stay fit by working out at least 1-2 hours every day
    He also tries to work on his stickhandling using his dog as a defender. Leon jokingly said he's one of the best defenders he's played against.

    Draisaitl's 13-point win is tied for the 5th largest in the last 30 seasons.

    1. Gretzky (1990-91), 32 points
    2. Jagr (1998-99), 20
    3. Crosby (2013-14) 17
    4. Kane (2015-16), 16
    5. Gretzky (1989-90); Lemieux (1996-97); Draisaitl (2019-20), 13

    And yet, people still believe it was all McDavid doing it all :sarcasm:

    Nice to have 2 Art Ross winners on the same team :D

    99.9% that Draisaitl will be awarded the Art Ross.
    Such an amazing player and deserves it.
    I’ve been saying for years that we are so lucky to have this guy and he’s one of the best (if not best) player in the league.

    Cant wait till he gets even better.

    Nice!

    Lol maybe he could have caught up to the rocket if the season hadn't ended. He was 5 behind. Unlikely, but possible

    What an amazing player. Well deserved win and he finally shoves the 'he can't carry a line or team' nonsense up the collective rears of all the haters.

    He really is the new Malkin. We're blessed.

    And with that Evolving Wild has Draisaitl as maybe having a top 10 season, maybe and Pettersson as the best player in the league. Lol

    Nichushkin is still the favorite to win the Hart and Lindsay.

    They probably have him as maybe a top 10 player on the oilers this year.

    Big congrats to him.

    Back when both were "just" promising prospects/rookies I thought it likely Leon would have at least one year where he beat out McDavid for best in the league.

    After McDavid began to pull away from Leon I doubted it would happen... and then he does it but faster, better, and stronger than even i imagined.

    Absolutely awesome. Love watching him play. Even at the nhl level he is a man among boys. Hope it's one of many to come and that it translates to even bigger acolytes in the post season.
