Christian Ehrhoff

From the upcoming hockey nation of Germany, Christian Ehrhoff had a good career in the National Hockey League where he broke in with the San Jose Sharks.  After a 42 Point season with San Jose in 2008/09 he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks where for two seasons he put up his best seasons in the NHL where he finished seventh and tenth in Defensive Point Shares with a ninth and eighth place finish in Norris Trophy voting.  He would also have a 50 Point campaign in his last season with Vancouver (2010-11).  Ehrhoff finished his career with Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Chicago.

While the odds are not great for him to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame, the International Hockey Hall of Fame might come calling.  Ehrhoff represented Germany many times in the World Hockey Championship and the Olympics and he was a key veteran in his country’s surprise Silver Medal win in the 2018 Games.  He was also a Silver Medalist for the merged team Europe in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.
