AMAZING HOCKEY STORIES: LEON DRAISAITL
Release date: March 2024 Publisher: Scholastic Canada
An inside look at one of the top current NHL players, Leon Draisaitl. Born in Cologne, Germany, Leon Draisaitl excelled in many sports as a youth. Ultimately, he followed in the footsteps of his father, a professional hockey player who played in three Olympic games. Since joining the Oilers in 2014, Leon has only gotten better in each season he’s played. A natural center who can easily switch to the wing, he has the size, speed and vision that make him effective as a scorer or set-up man with a knack for finding the open man. Engaging text and action comic sequences illustrate how he made his way to the top of the points charts, earning both the Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award, given to the League’s most outstanding player!
