During the pregame show of the Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers game on Saturday night on Sportsnet, NHL insider Nick Kypreos discussed the lack of success of the Oilers on the power-play.
After almost begging NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, who mentioned in an interview with Chris Simpson that he trusts Todd McLellan to lead the Oilers the right way, Kypreos shifted his attention to players who are struggling and the name of Leon Draisaitl pushed him to make a shocking comment.
According to Kyrpreos, Draisaitl "is not right" and could be "playing hurt."
We all remember Draisaitl got hurt at the start of the season when he suffered a hit by Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba, but still managed to finish the game. He then missed a few contests with concussion-like symptoms.
Kyrpreos is not the first to hint at the young star forward's health following his head injury. His colleague John Shannon has recently mentioned that an Oilers source revealed that Draisaitl was not the same player since the concussion.
