CBC Edmonton News (TV): Oilers winning streak, Draisaitl’s performance and upcoming games

cbc edmonton logoI joined host Alicia Asquith on the CBC Edmonton News for my weekly television segment to discuss all things Oilers. Clip is here and starts at the 17:45 mark: CBC Edmonton News (2019, March 7)

Topics we covered:

  • The Oilers recent road trip, with three straight wins against Ottawa, Columbus and Buffalo.
  • The Oilers last 10 games, and some of the keys. Worth noting that the team was trending upwards in mid February, largely due to improved defensive play, but are now finally getting results thanks to improved netminding.
  • Leon Draisatl’s performance. Noted that his individual shooting percentage is at 20.0% at even-strength (Data: Natural Stat Trick). Well above his career average of 10.96% heading into the 2018/19 season – so definitely worth tempering expectations for next season.
  • Upcoming home games against Vancouver and Toronto.
