Oilers Getting Huge Boost Ahead of Key Matchup vs Kraken

The Edmonton Oilers received some great news this week as injured forward Leon Draisaitl appears to have healed up much quicker than originally anticipated and should be suiting up for Tuesday night's game against the Seattle Kraken.

Draisaitl is expected to play alongside Warren Foegele and Kailer Yamamoto as the Oilers are trying to balance out their top-three lines as much as possible. 

The 27-year-old German superstar has recorded 57 points in 36 games so far this season and will surely help the Oilers power play, which was dismal without him. Tuesday's game is a huge test for both clubs as the Kraken and Oil are tied at 42 points, occupying both wild card positions in the Western Conference and only one point up on the Colorado Avalanche.
