With a playoff spot locked up, and no more pressure from the regular season as this will be the final few games for the Oilers, players tend to be a little looser and show some fancier plays while having fun to close out the season.

Tonight the Oilers played against the San Jose Sharks, and superstar Leon Draisaitl showed the fans his playmaking skills as he does a no-look spin-around pass which connects with Oilers defenseman Evan Bouchard.


It's certainly a very pretty play, one could argue that it could be the play of the year but it's worth watching and admiring the talent that Draisaitl has.


The 27-year-old centermen have played 82 games, with 52 goals and 76 assists for 128 points. He has had an incredible run over the last few years eclipsing 100 points or more at such consistency. Now the Oilers focus their attention on the postseason and their first-round opponent, the Los Angeles Kings.

In the coming days will be numerous articles regarding this match-up and heavy analysis as well.
