Leon Draisaitl, the talented forward for the Edmonton Oilers, has etched his name in NHL history by becoming the third-fastest player to reach 60 career playoff points in just 38 games. This remarkable feat is a testament to Draisaitl's skill and determination on the ice, and it solidifies his status as one of the league's premier players.

The only two players to achieve this milestone faster than Draisaitl are hockey legends Wayne Gretzky, who did it in just 26 games, and Mario Lemieux, who accomplished the feat in 34 games.

Draisaitl's ability to step up his game in the postseason has been a significant factor in the Oilers' success, and he is expected to continue to make a significant impact in the league for years to come.
