Afternoon Player Notes in the Draft (Oct 29)
The Edmonton Oilers have recalled centre Leon Draisaitl, ahead of Thursday night's clash against the Montreal Canadiens, placing Jordan Eberle on the Long Term Injured Reserve to help accommodate the move. Draisaitl was thought to be close to making the Oilers out of training camp this year, but depth became an issue for the German and he was sent down to the AHL to get some certain playing time. He will likely be dressing for the game against Montreal tonight, making his 2016 season debut.
Draisaitl was one of the last picks in the draft this year, as Eric took him 374th overall. If Draisaitl was to have a goal and an assist in tonight's game, he would be cost efficient, as that's what the 374th ranked player in pool scoring has thus far in the season.
