Edmonton Oilers DFS Spin

Leon Draisaitl was on the ice for Monday's practice ahead of Game 1 of the Western Conference Final on Tuesday against Colorado. Draisaitl had not been skating with the team since he was injured in Game 6 of Round 1 against Los Angeles. It was reportedly an ankle issue that was bothering him and it still might be heading into Round 3. Still, it is encouraging that he was back on the ice for Monday's session. Draisaitl is still tied with teammate Connor McDavid for first in playoff scoring with 26 points (seven goals, 19 assists) in 12 outings.

Colorado Avalanche DFS Spin

Gabriel Landeskog was on the ice for Monday's practice ahead of Game 1 of the Western Conference Final against Edmonton on Tuesday. Landeskog hasn't been taking part in most of the team's on-ice sessions during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Monday's skate wasn't a full practice with contact, but Landeskog should still be expected to be good to go for the series opener versus the Oilers. He has six goals and 11 points in 10 games this postseason after returning from knee surgery.
