The Edmonton Oilers lead the NHL with 44 goals through 10 games. Leon Draisaitl has scored 10 times in 10 outings, which includes the overtime winner on Friday in a come-from-behind win over the New York Rangers.

The Oilers have the third-best record in the league at 9-1-0 thanks in large part to the dominance of Draisaitl and Connor McDavid.

Draisaitl leads the league with 23 points, which includes six three-point efforts. According to NHL Public Relations, there have been only two players in NHL history who have more three-point performances than the Oilers forward through their first 10 appearances of a season. Mario Lemieux accomplished the feat seven times in 1995-96 and in 1988-89 and Wayne Gretzky also did it seven times in 1984-85.

McDavid had a three-point night as well Friday. He sits second in the league with 22 points (eight goals, 14 assists). McDavid scored on a 1v4 play against the Rangers to tie the game at the 17:01 mark of the third period. It wouldn’t be a surprise if it was the goal of the year and we are only at the beginning of November.
