Throughout the NHL season, most fanbases do not see the softer side or human side of the NHL players as they're looked at as these tough rugged guys who don't show too much of their personal lives. One such player happens to be Leon Draisaitl of the Oilers who by all accounts looks like this tough, serious person.

During a flight, someone snapped a picture of Draisaitl holding his dog in his lap. The 27-year-old Oilers centerman had a large grin on his face while petting the animal.


Draisaitl has much to celebrate in terms of his seasonal numbers and his playoff numbers individually. He was dominant and showed that he's one of the elites in the NHL


He played 80 games this season, scoring 52 goals with 76 assists for 128 points. During his playoff run, he played 12 games, scored 13 goals with 5 assists for 18 points.

As the Oilers head into the draft and free agency, it remains whether general manager Ken Holland can produce a roster that will go deeper in the playoffs as they only have $5.9 million in the cap to work with and 15 players signed.
WILL THE OILERS BE ABLE TO EXTEND DRAISAITL IN HIS NEXT CONTRACT?
