The 21-year-old is still recovering from concussion symptoms.
Draisaitl has only played three games so far this young season. He suffered the injury after getting his bell rung by Jacob Trouba in an Oct. 9 contest against the Winnipeg Jets.
“My head is the most important thing and I really don’t want to mess around with that,” Draisaitl said Thursday. “I’m starting to feel a lot better. I didn’t feel right for a couple of days and I still feel symptoms here and there, but I’m feeling a lot better from day to day.”
