Draisaitl of Oilers inspires fellow German Stuetzle going into NHL Draft
Tim Stuetzle hopes to become the highest Germany-born and trained player chosen in the NHL Draft in the same year Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl became the first Germany-born player to lead the NHL in points.

"As a German, you have to go with Leon [as a role model]," Stuetzle said Thursday. "He had an unbelievable season and is an idol for many kids. My personal icons also were Connor McDavid and Sidney Crosby but, as a German, it's Leon of course as well."
