Even with Connor McDavid sidelined, Edmonton Oilers superstar Leon Draisaitl continues to play at an MVP level, and he knows it.

Draisaitl bagged three points Sunday against the Carolina Hurricanes, giving him 10 in four games with McDavid sidelined and extending his lead in the league scoring race.

"According to a lot of people out there, I can't play on my own; I can only play with Connor," Draisaitl said after the win, according to The Athletic's Daniel Nugent-Bowman.
