We all as the Edmonton Oilers hoped for more and also expected more from ourselves! Of course it was still a lot of fun with the guys and I learned a lot again but unfortunately we could not continue our performance from the previous year where we were one win away from the Conference Finals. We now have to take the positive out of the season and prepare ourselves well for the 2018/2019 season. We all expect more from ourselves and hope that we can get back to what we expect from our Team. After the season, I joined the national team and completed the World Hockey Championship in Denmark. As always we had a lot of fun but unfortunately we could not continue our great play from the years before! Nevertheless, as always, it was an honor to represent my country and I hope that I can do that for many more years. 2015–2016 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-04 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-05 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-03 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-02 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-01 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-08 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-07 leon-draisaitl-edmonton-oilers-06 leon-draisaitl-wm-2016-01 leon-draisaitl-wm-2016-02 The 2015-2016 season didn’t start the way I wanted it to start, before the season I was the last guy to get cut from the Edmonton Oilers. I was very disappointed of course but worked hard on my game in the AHL and then after 6 games in the minors I got called up to the NHL. The coaches really believed in me and gave me a great chance to play with some really good players! It was a really fun year we had a great group of guys but of course we all wish we would’ve made the playoffs. After my NHL season I said yes to playing for team gemany at the world championship in Russia. We played really hockey throughout the tournament and made it to the quarter finals where russia beat us 1:4. Its always fun to play in intetnational tournaments like that, the best players of the world play against eachother. 2014 Leon Draisaitl 2013-2014 WHL Highlights My second season in Prince Albert was my draftyear it was the most important season in my career so far!
