DRAWS

 

Leon Draisaitl won 42-of-71 draws (59.2%) over his last four games.  He’s improved to a 51.2% success rate on the season, but that’s down from 56.1% in 2017-18.  Jordan Staal has claimed 38-of-66 faceoffs (57.6%) in his last three contests.  That’s actually a step backwards for him this season as his overall winning percentage is 61%.  Ryan O'Reilly won 42-of-71 draws (67.2%) over his last three games.  He’s won 63.2% of his faceoffs in 13 games this season, which puts him in first place among those that have taken at least 100 faceoffs.  Jason Spezza ranks second with a 62.7% success rate in 15 contests in 2018-19.  He’s only taken 177 draws though compared to O’Reilly’s 280.
