In the Edmonton Oilers' first game since firing their head coach, all players on the team were clearly looking to make an impact on the ice tonight. Leon Draisaitl made an impact on the scoresheet, but also left a physical mark on the opposing Islanders.

In a board battle against Bo Horvat, Draisaitl delivered a vicious cross check directed at the knees, sending Horvat crumbling to the ice.
With Horvat's back turned to Draisaitl, and the impact being directed at the knees with intent to injure, it's possible this play could be reviewed by the Department of Player Safety. Draisaitl likely won't be suspended, but could be fined for the dirty play.
Otherwise from this play, Draisaitl had a dominate performance, scoring a goal and three assists to lead the Oilers to a 4-1 win in their first game under new head coach Kris Knoblauch. Still with a record of 4-9-1 and in second last place in the NHL, the Oilers have a long way to progress if they want to live up to expectations of contending for the Stanley Cup this year.
