Leon Draisaitl's Four-Goal Night Overshadowed by Loss and Lack of Recognition

Leon Draisaitl's put in a strong effort against the Golden Knights, managing to practically carry his team and score 4 times, but despite this, the Oilers still lost and Draisaitl's strong performance was unfortunately overshadowed by the Golden Knights 6 point victory.

To make matters worse, Draisaitl didn't even receive the recognition he deserved for his impressive effort and was not chosen as a star of the game.

Fans React to Controversy Surrounding Leon Draisaitl

The NHL's decision to exclude Draisaitl from the three stars sparked discussions on Twitter, as fans were quick to complain about the treatment he received. The NHL selected three Golden Knights players as the stars, citing their victory and home team status.

Comparisons were inevitably made between Draisaitl's situation and that of Joe Pavelski, who also carried his team on Tuesday and did not receive the proper recognition, despite clearly being a star player in his game.

Pavelski accomplished his feat in front of his home crowd, while Draisaitl's performance was in Vegas.


Call for NHL to Uphold Unbiased Standards

It is high time for the NHL to demonstrate the unbiased approach they claim to uphold, ensuring that players receive recognition based on their individual accomplishments rather than their team's success or location.
