BLOG: Draisaitl playing with Hall

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

If the lines that were run this morning at practice were any indication, Leon Draisaitl will have the opportunity to play with Taylor Hall. It’s an opportunity that the young rookie centre should be excited about. As a playmaking centre, Hall could be his best friend offensively.

“Taylor has been through that experience not too long ago,” Head Coach Dallas Eakins said. “His experience will definitely help Leon. We also think that Leon is a very good distributor of the puck and he’s going to be able to step right in there with Taylor and give him the puck. I thought Teddy last night played a really good game and Teddy can certainly do both, he can find people and he can also shoot the puck. We feel, at least looking at it on paper with what each guy brings, they compliment each other.”
