Leon Draisaitl Beats Mike Smith For 50th Goal Of The Season
- Leon Draisaitl squeaks a wrist shot past Mike Smith for his 50th goal of the season for the Edmonton Oilers.
- Leon Draisaitl joined Wayne Gretzky (8x), Jari Kurri (4x), Glenn Anderson (2x) and Mark Messier as just the fifth player in Oilers franchise history to score 50 goals in a single season.
- In the last decade only 5 players have scored 50 or more goals: Ovechkin (8 times), Stamkos (twice), Crosby, Malkin and Perry
- Leon Draisaitl now joins that group and is first the Oiler to score 50 in 30+ seasons (Craig Simpson-56, 1987-88)
- Draisaitl is the first player not named Alex Ovechkin to score 50 goals in a season since 2011-12
