Hockey star Leon Draisaitl scored a goal and assisted the Edmonton Oilers to their second NHL win of the season. In the 6:4 win against the Carolina Hurricanes, the international scored to make it 5:3 in the meantime and prepared Connor McDavid's fifth goal of the season at the end.
JJ Peterka also played his part in the Buffalo Sabers' 6-3 defeat of the Calgary Flames. The 20-year-old set up Rasmus Dahlin's goal to make it 2-1 and after his first four games of the season as a permanent member of the Sabers squad, he already has a good four scorer points. He made two appearances for the Sabers last season, but was then sent back to the second-tier AHL.
Tim Stützle didn't play a part in the Ottawa Senators' 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals. Because Nico Sturm also clinched the first win of the season with the San José Sharks and won 3-2 against the New York Rangers, all German NHL professionals left the ice as winners on Thursday.
