Oilers recall Draisaitl, place Eberle on LTIR

Bruce Fedyck / USA TODAY Sports

The Edmonton Oilers have added another top draft pick to the mix.

Leon Draisaitl, who was selected third overall in 2014, has been recalled from the AHL's Bakersfield Condors, the club announced Thursday.

Draisaitl is expected to play on a line with Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins against Montreal.

The move corresponds with the placement of Jordan Eberle on long-term injured reserve. The winger suffered a shoulder injury during the preseason and could return sometime in November.

Draisaitl, 20, recorded one goal and one assist in six AHL games this season.
