Observations

December 2019 – So far this season, Reichel has been one of the biggest risers on draft boards. The nephew of former NHLer Robert Reichel has put up eight goals and 15 points in 23 games in the DEL, the top league in Germany. What makes it even more remarkable is that he’s only averaged 13:22 of ice time per game playing for Eisbären Berlin, one of the top teams in the league. A year ago, Reichel had a very good season in the German junior league where he put up 11 goals and 42 points in 32 games. But no one expected him to be this good this quickly. Because of his strong season, Reichel is expected to play a major role for Germany at the World Juniors later this month.

Reichel is a very good skater with great combination of speed and quickness. He is constantly moving and participating in the play even when he doesn’t have the puck. Reichel has very good puck-skills and a great shot. He isn’t afraid to battle for pucks in the corners or go to the dirty areas of the ice which shows his pro-like style. Reichel has shown great hockey sense on both sides of the puck; he is already pretty good defensively which is a positive sign for his NHL future. He isn’t all that flashy but he is very efficient, and he has legitimate middle-six upside at the NHL level. He is also pretty young for his draft class. Reichel is projected to be drafted in the second round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.  Jokke Nevalainen
