Draisaitl Envisions NHL Talent in German National Team

German ice hockey standout Leon Draisaitl is thrilled about the progress of German players in the world's premier hockey league, just ahead of the commencement of the new NHL season. Speaking during a media roundtable, the 27-year-old stated, "This is truly remarkable for German ice hockey. I would be overjoyed if, at some point, we could all unite and represent Germany." In particular...

"That's outstanding for German ice hockey," the 27-year-old said in a media roundtable: "I'd be very happy if we all got together at some point and played for Germany."

Above all, the multitude of German offensive players in the NHL puts world-class forward Draisaitl in a positive mood. "We've been waiting a long time for guys like this, who play a good and important role and also contribute a lot offensively," Draisaitl said. He added that it shows that Germany can also "train very, very good players offensively."

In addition to Draisaitl, seven other German pros are in the lineups of NHL teams, including world championship runners-up Moritz Seider (22/Detroit Red Wings) and John-Jason Peterka (21/Buffalo Sabres), Tim Stützle (22/Ottawa Senators), Philipp Grubauer (31/Seattle Kraken), Lukas Reichel (21/Chicago Blackhawks), Nico Sturm (28) and Leon Gawanke (24/both San Jose Sharks). Seider and Stützle are already top performers for their teams, while Peterka and keeper Grubauer are important mainstays.

"Playing against the other Germans is always exciting and a lot of fun," Draisaitl said. He also has high goals with his Edmonton Oilers in the upcoming season, which the Canadians start Thursday night with an away game at the Vancouver Canucks. In his tenth NHL season, he wants to finally win a title. Many teams have the potential to go very far, explained the Cologne native: "Of course, I'd like to put us in that group, too."

Last season's playoff elimination should also serve as a valuable lesson. The aspiration of winning the Stanley Cup had been dashed in the second round against the eventual champions, the Las Vegas Golden Knights. "We've all aged a year, and with that, we've gained additional experience. We should now feel more at ease in these types of scenarios," Draisaitl commented.
