Do not be surprised if Leon Draisaitl opens the season on the wing.
The third overall pick in the 2014 Draft was used as the Oilers second center for 37 games last season before he was sent back to junior hockey as Edmonton did not have another pivot to play behind Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. But this season Connor McDavid will line up at center as well as Anton Lander and Mark Letestu. "I’d be totally fine with that" Draisaitl said about the shift to the wing. "I’ve played the wing before. I know how to play the wing and for me it wouldn’t really matter. As long as I’m on the team. You have more responsibility as a center. A lot of times you’re the guy working down low with the defenseman. That takes work, the kind you don’t have as a winger. You have to work hard as a winger as well, but it’s a little different role. I know how to play both and I think that’s a good thing to have." Stay tuned. Jul 4 - 6:41 AM
