After play-off with Edmonton – will superstar Draisaitl come to the World Cup?

It was his dream to bring the Stanley Cup with him to Germany. It won’t work for our best ice hockey player, Leon Draisaitl (25), for now. On Tuesday morning, Germany’s superstar and his Edmonton Oilers were eliminated from the NHL playoffs.

Draisaitl’s team lost to the Winnipeg Jets in the fourth game 3: 4 in the third overtime and thus lost the best-of-five series with 0: 4.

Draisaitl was involved in two hits in the last game. But that didn’t change anything about the defeat. National team colleague Dominik Kahun was not used. Kyle Connor scored the decisive goal for Winnipeg in the seventh minute of the third overtime.

The question now is: Will Draisaitl and Kahun still join the German World Cup team in Riga? Defender Korbinian Holzer: “It’s bitter for Leon and Dominik. Both had hoped for more. In any case, there are two players who would look good on every team. “

Everything is open at the moment. The decisive factor will be whether both players want to take on the additional burden after the complicated NHL season and the great disappointment. Because Draisaitl and Kahun would have to go into a seven-day quarantine after arriving in Riga. It would no longer be possible to use it in the preliminary round. So the chances are minimal.
