Oilers star absent for tonight - Long term?

Leon Draisaitl, one of the main engines of the Oilers' offense appears to be absent for tonight's game against the Seattle Kraken.

Draisaitl is rumored to be injured most of this season and not completely healthy as per Ryan Rishaug of TSN.

The 27-year-old center has been racking up points steadily all season alongside his linemate and NHL sensation Connor McDavid. He's currently with 21 goals, 36 assists for 57 points, and is a + 4.

This is not the news that the Edmonton Oilers want to hear and hopefully whatever ailment he has will be resolved quickly so that he can get back to this amazing season he is having.

The Oilers will face the Kraken tonight, game time will be 10:00 PM eastern.
