Munich, Germany - Another Barons defenseman will be packing his bags after the season: Christoph Schubert, last year’s rookie surprise, has signed with the Nuremberg Ice Tigers.
 

Off to Nuremberg: Defenseman Christoph Schubert
Leading DEL Scorers
(as of Feb 19, 2005)

He was one of the young guns who stepped into the DEL spotlight, virtually coming out of nowhere last season. Two years ago, nobody around the league knew his name. But Barons sports director Max Fedra finally recognized Schubert’s talent and brought him to the DEL.

Schubert soon established himself as a fan favourite in Munich, mainly because of his physical presence and uncompromising play. He even became a national player in his rookie season. Munich and “Schubie” – a two-season love affair. But know, the talented defender is set to leave the Barons.

In a TV interview, Schubert Saturday confirmed that he will play at Nuremberg next season. At the Barons‘ bavarian rival, he joins former defense linemate Chris Luongo who guided him through his first steps on the DEL ice surface.

With the aquisition of Schubert, the Ice Tigers will add some physical strength to their defense. Not a scorer but a ferocious checker, Schubert racked up 80 penalty minutes, six goals and three assists in 55 games in his rookie season in Munich. This season Schubert has 3 goals and 9 assists in 41 games. He increased his affinity to the penalty box, though: Schubert has already served 115 minutes, ranking him 15th in the DEL.

Schubert has had a tremendous development in Munich – not only did he become a national player for Team Germany, he was also drafted by the NHL’s Ottawa Senators last spring. The best hockey league in the world is calling, and after attending last year’s training camp, the NHL has become Christoph’s main focus.

Schubert explained his trade saying that he was seeking a new challenge in Nuremberg and that he wanted to get some more experience elsewhere. Let’s hope he has drawn the right decision – the Barons and their fans certainly can be thankful for Christoph Schubert’s intensity and willing to go out there every night and play good hockey. Good luck, Schubie !
