When last we checked in on Leon Draisaitl he had just completed 15 games of his WHL stint. He was roughly half way through that season and while he was doing well, he was still just finding his way around a new team. The big Oiler prospect found himself playing for the Kelowna Rockets who are poised atop the WHL’s Western Conference Standings and second in the WHL only to the Brandon Wheat Kings. So how does he look now that the WHL regular season is over?

If you ask me, Mondays roll around far too often for my liking. Luckily the Mailbag offers you 3000 words of company time killer and for that we can all be grateful. As always, the mailbag depends on your questions and if you have one to ask you an email me at email@example.com or hit me up on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. So go on, grab some coffee, put your feet up and learn something until your boss catches you - it's mailbag time.

Josh Winquist took advantage of added playing time (due to injury, illness and callups) and posted a strong week for the Oklahoma City Barons. The last seven days also saw outstanding performances by Leon Draisaitl in Kelowna and Kyle Platzer in Owen Sound.

There are a little under three weeks left in the Edmonton Oilers’ season, a 20-day span of time in which the team will play 10 games. With Edmonton seemingly settled firmly into 28th-place in the NHL, the club’s performance over these 10 games doesn’t matter much at all from a standings perspective.
That doesn’t mean these games are meaningless. Far from it, in fact; these might be the most meaningful games the Oilers have played all year.
