The Edmonton Oilers signed Leon Draisaitl's ELC in August of 2014, and he has been with them ever since. Later, the team lucked out and drafted Connor McDavid for an elite 1-2 punch.

Considering Leon Draisaitl put up 128 points last season, it's hard to disagree that he's the best power forward in the league.

"I think he's the best power forward in today's game."

Coach Jay Woodcroft thinks Draisaitl is the league's best power forward, as he told the media.

He is not only an excellent winger, but also an excellent center who is not afraid to get dirty, throw hits, and has an excellent shot, as well as an excellent passer.

In Draisaitl's toolbox, as well as a lethal power-play option, there is little that is lacking.

A roster like the Oilers' has everything with a player like Draisaitl on it.
