BLOG: Draisaitl first player to hit 100 points

EDMONTON, AB - Last season it was L50N. This year we've got L100N.

Leon Draisaitl became the first player in the NHL to hit 100 points this season with his first-period goal against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.

Draisaitl hammered home his 38th of the year on the power play thanks to a perfect backhand pass from Connor McDavid. There was a little extra emphasis on his celebration as he achieved the century-mark milestone.

Draisaitl also became the seventh player in Oilers history to record multiple 100-point campaigns, joining McDavid (3x), Wayne Gretzky (9x), Jari Kurri (6x), Mark Messier (5x), Glenn Anderson (3x) and Paul Coffey (3x).

He's also the 10th different player over the last 26 years (since 1993-94) to reach the 100-point mark in 65 games or fewer, doing so in Edmonton's 65th game. The feat was also achieved last season by Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lightning who did it in 62 games.
