Germany has struggled internationally the past few years. But Christian Ehrhoff, the star defenseman for the Vancouver Canucks has not.
Christian has been one of the few shining lights for Germany in recent years. With nearly 60 internatonal games for the Germans, including 2 Olympic appearances Christian is the most experienced international competitor for the German team.
Ehrhoff doesnt have a notable award to his credit, but he is certainly a defender most NHL teams take note of when he is on the ice, especially on the power play. His ability to quarterback a power play & distribute the puck to the proper people is near the top of the league & one of the reasons the Canucks are in a playoff spot right now. It is this skill that makes him invaluable to Germany.
Germany is not a likely threat to win a medal. They are going to Vancouver to try & improve on their current 12th place ranking in the IIHF. If they are to make any steps in doing that, a great performance by their notablres, such as Christian Ehrhoff will be needed.
