Leon Draisaitl shouldn't be rusty when he reports for training camp. If anything, he might be fatigued.
The Oilers centre has not stopped playing hockey, it seems, since the 2015-16 season ended. Although he did have some break, Draisaitl joined his home country Germany for the Olympic qualifying tournament in Riga, Latvia.
Draisaitl scored two goals and added three assists for five points in three games as Germany swept Group E and clinched a spot in the 2018 Olympics.
Like several of his Team Europe teammates at the World Cup of Hockey, Draisaitl came straight from the qualifying tournament to begin training with his new club.
