German players start the season with defeats

Dhe national ice hockey players Leon Draisaitl, Dominik Kahun and Philipp Grubauer both suffered defeats at the start of the season in the NHL. The Edmonton Oilers around Draisaitl and Kahun lost on Wednesday evening (local time) 3: 5 (0: 1, 1: 1, 2: 3) to the Vancouver Canucks, Grubauer and the Colorado Avalanche lost to the St. Louis Blues 1: 4 ( 1: 2, 0: 0, 0: 2).

“I felt good. It’s tough that we didn’t get the points, but it was great to make my debut for the Oilers, ”said Kahun. “We also had a lot of chances for goals. We have to remedy our mistakes and do a better job tomorrow. ”The next test of strength with the Canucks will take place on Thursday.

For the NHL newcomer Tim Stützle, the season with the Ottawa Senators begins on the German night on Saturday. Stützle made it straight into the squad and is considered a great hope for the team from the Canadian capital. He will be 19 years old on the day of the duel with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

His two compatriots were on the ice together on Wednesday when Draisaitl scored his first scorer point of the season with an assist on Kailer Yamamoto. Kahun also had an assist, but too many mistakes in all areas robbed the Oilers of any chance of a good start. “I’m sure we can do better tomorrow,” said goal scorer Adam Larsson.

In the past season, Draisaitl was the top scorer in the strongest ice hockey league in the world and was also the first German to be voted the most valuable player. He wants to win the Stanley Cup with the Oilers.
