Germany's ice hockey superstar Leon Draisaitl has scored his 18th goal of the season for the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL. In the 8:2 win against the Arizona Coyotes, the 27-year-old was successful in the 29th minute on the Canadian power play on a pass from his brilliant colleague Connor McDavid. It was a 3-0 lead for the Oilers, who have five wins in their last seven games.
Meanwhile, German professional John-Jason Peterka from the Buffalo Sabers celebrated a 9-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night. However, the 20-year-old from Munich was unable to contribute to the scoring in 16:55 minutes. But he saw a personal best at close range: Tage Thompson scored five and set up one. He scored the first four goals in the first third - setting an NHL record. After the first third, the guests from Buffalo led 6:0 and were able to decide the match. In the Atlantic Division, Buffalo, on their second consecutive win, is seventh on 25 points.
