Oilers’ Leon Draisaitl in lineup for Game 7 vs. Kings


Edmonton Oilers star Leon Draisaitl took warmups and will play in the team’s do-or-die Game 7 against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

After Draisaitl appeared to suffer an ankle injury when he was pulled over backward during a scrum in the first period of the Oilers’ 4-2 win in Game 6 on Thursday, Edmonton head coach Jay Woodcroft wouldn’t say Saturday morning whether Draisaitl or defenceman Brett Kulak would be in the lineup.

Neither Draisaitl or Kulak were on the ice for Edmonton’s morning skate. Kulak will also be active for Game 7 after reportedly missing the skate for the birth of his child.

Draisaitl has five goals and three assists in six games in the series. He had 110 points (55-55) in the regular season.
