LeonDraisaitl2326Week 3:  Arizona Hockey Talk’s preliminary evaluations of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft top prospects continue today with our featured prospect Leon Draisaitl.


Draisaitl is a highly skilled playmaking center, not overly physical but he does use his size effectively.   Draisaitl has excellent on-ice vision, soft hands and is a good skater. His biggest asset and one of the highest compliments a player can receive is that he has a high hockey IQ and great hockey sense.

aka the German Wayne Gretzky !!!

Leon Draisaitl has been nick-named the “German Gretzky” and as rookie he  recorded 58 points with the Raiders last season.  Draisaitl was also very impressive at the 2013 U20 WJHC  as a 17 year old playing for Germany where he had six points in six games.

Leon Draisaitl is a player to keep your eyes on this season as early projections have Draisaitl being a potential top 5 pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
