    The 2015-2016 season didn’t start the way I wanted it to start, before the season I was the last guy to get cut from the Edmonton Oilers. I was very disappointed of course but worked hard on my game in the AHL and then after 6 games in the minors I got called up to the NHL. The coaches really believed in me and gave me a great chance to play with some really good players! It was a really fun year we had a great group of guys but of course we all wish we would’ve made the playoffs.

    After my NHL season I said yes to playing for team gemany at the world championship in Russia. We played really hockey throughout the tournament and made it to the quarter finals where russia beat us 1:4. Its always fun to play in intetnational tournaments like that, the best players of the world play against eachother.
