The Edmonton Oilers may finally have a couple bounces go their way.
Edmonton has been without their star forward Leon Draisaitl since suffering a concussion against the Winnipeg Jets on October 9th. He had since been played on injured reserve - after discovering that what was initially believed to be an eye injury happened to be concussion-like symptoms.
Draisaitl has 3 points in 3 games played this season.
Drake Caggiula, signed in 2016 as a free agent, has been out for about as long as Draisaitl, and was also placed on injured reserve. Whatever has been ailing him hasn't been disclosed publicly.
Caggiula is pointless through 2 games.
This will be a much-needed boost to a dry offense - the team sits 3rd to last in the NHL standings in points, and 2nd last in goals scored.
