Taking up ice hockey as a German is not a thing that a lot of Germans would do. But Leon Draisaitl isn’t like the rest of them. This professional ice hockey player who plays for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League (NHL) was born on the 27th of October 1995 in Cologne, Germany. Although he was interested in football as a child, it was ice hockey that really seized his interest. He began playing with the Kölner Haie under-16 team and the Adler Mannheim under-18 team, and even the Ravensburg Towerstars. He has also played for Jungadler Mannheim before embarking on his career.
Drafted with the third overall pick by the Oilers in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, he has been a key part of the Oilers’ offence ever since he started playing for them. A three-time All-Star, he is considered one of the top young forwards in the NHL, and he has a bright future ahead of him. This young man represented Germany at the 2016 World Cup in Toronto and won the silver medal with them.
