Leon Draisaitl

Recommended Posts

Don't know anything about him, but here's one of his teamates: http://eliteprospect...hp?player=71940

:lol: The compitition levels might not be that great.

You are right the compitition level isnt that high, its germany...

I know the 2nd guy too these two have far better stats then the rest of this league.

For example this guy

has not such good stats and many say he is the most skilled german player since a long time. He was draftet by the Oilers btw could be a steal.

Next year he plays DNL (Deutsche Nachwuchs Liga) the compitition level there is higher when you can say more about him.

He slowly starts to dominate the DNL too.Had a 6 point game last weekend.

In a interview he said that he maybe will play in a canadian junior league next season.

Will be very interesting to see how he does in the CHL for example.

Im sure he will not dominate like he does in germany but he will be a very good player too.

Leon was picked 2nd Overrall in the CHL Import Draft by the Prince Albert Raiders



Prince Albert SK – The Prince Albert Raiders selected forward Leon Draisaitl with the 2nd overall selection in the Canadian Hockey League Import Draft earlier today.

Draisaitl, a native of Cologne, Germany, recorded 21 goals and 35 assists for 56 points in 35 games last season for Jungadler Mannheim Under-18. In 2010-2011, left-shooting Draisaitl amassed 97 goals and 95 assists for 192 points in 29 games for his Mannheimer Under-16 team.

The 6’2”, 198-pound forward has international experience, scoring 7 points in 6 games as an underage player at the 2012 World Under-18 Championships this spring. The 16-year-old also played for his country at the 2012 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, scoring 5 points in 5 games.

“We are extremely pleased to have drafted Leon,” said Raiders General Manager Bruno Campese. “He is an offensively gifted player with an elite hockey sense.”

The Raiders traded their 2nd round selection in the CHL Import Draft to the Kelowna Rockets in exchange for a 7th round Western Hockey League Bantam Draft pick.

The team has also announced that import forward Jonas Knutsen will be returning to the team for the 2012-2013. In 49 games as a rookie last season, the Oslo, Norway product scored 6 goals and 6 assists.

when he´s ready for the nhl draft? when he´s 18?

excited to see what happens to him in the future..may the greatest german talent since erich kühnhackl..and well i hope tom kühnhackl will make the nhl in the next years
