During the 32 Thoughts Podcast, Leon Draisaitl told a funny story about practice and 1v1 drills against the league's best player.

It seems that Draisaitl has an edge on Connor McDavid in more than one way.

On 32 Thoughts: The Podcast, Leon Draisaitl admits to having a dump truck and how it helps him defend McDavid in a 1v1 drill.




In a game where players are often practicing protecting the puck from defenders, it's only obvious the two best players would be competing against one another.

Draisaitl said he can get ahead of McDavid in the drill due to his big butt, which helps in pushing McDavid away from the puck.

Furthermore, he mentioned that having a longer reach than McDavid helped him in the drill as well. It's almost as if Draisaitl is the Oilers' #2 player.

His dump-truck butt will undoubtedly endear the women to him further since he is a rugged, good-looking guy.
