    I don't think that's what actually happened. From what I remember, he was playing an important role in Worcester by the end of 2013/14 and starting of in 14/15. Then he got injured, and for some reason was never used in full capacity again. He basically turned from 1st pairing to 6th/7th D for no apparent reason. Towards the end of the season, he asked to be demoted to the ECHL so he could play more again.

    Quite the surprising day.

    Bokk was obviously the top prospect, but I was told he won't report because of his pro contract with Cologne.
    Eckl was another interesting target, but he disappointed in every one of my viewings last season.
    Valenti has been a target for at least three years around the CHL, so no surprise to see him picked. That said, he was extremely inconsistent last season, and I did not think he would be ready this year.
    Köhler is a great player, just surprised he was picked as a 19-year-old. Can play pro in Cologne or Frankfurt this season. If he has any chance of playing in Cologne, I doubt he'll be allowed to report (same as Bokk). Not sure what Cologne's plans are, though.
    Alexandrov was a huge surprise as well. Great numbers, but played in the weaker division all year long.
    Bappert was definitely not on my radar at all very surprised about that one.

    Awesome. Thanks for the link!

    It's nice to be a german hockey fan these days. They definately made some steps since the early 2000s. I also like how Marco Sturm handles the national team. Definately the right guy for this job. :handclap: The public needs someone they might know so this sport gets at least some attention in the media (although it's still not nearly enough, way to much football here)...

    Looks like Alexandrov will be reporting to Charlottetown, at least according to their Coach/GM.

    Random rant:
    I do not know where these issues come from, but it annoys me to no end that you cannot use umlaute, quotation marks, apostrophes, etc. anymore because they are not going to be displayed correctly.

    I really liked him in my viewings, third best German this year behind Ugbekile and Bokk.

    Having the exact same problem.

    Let's hope that Bokk will be able to go to NA... It's sad to say but prospects that interesting shouldn't be forced to stay in this still pretty bad german hockey development system.

    I've heard that Tiffels stood out in a good way, but that should be expected since he was a bit older than many of the other players at camp. The main camp will be interesting.

    Gawanke apparently did alright in the Jets camp. I have seen parts of their scrimmage and will take a look at the whole thing this weekend.
    Gawanke had definitely one assist during that game (his shot from the blueline was deflected into the goal) and from what I have seen so far he did ok.
    Nico Sturm who was also invited to the Jets camp also showed some potential, although I don't think he stood out enough to be signed by a NHL team.

    I haven't heard anything about the others.

    I will make a few changes to the OP this upcoming season.
    It will include more information, for those players/leagues where it's available, like PP goals, SH goals, secondary assists, etc.

    Sebastian Streu has signed with Kootenay Ice (WHL).
    I don't think he counts as an import, but I'm not sure.
