The 16-year-old forward was drafted by the OHL team in this year's CHL Import Draft.

"I was very happy to get this chance," Kimi Körbler tells the Südostschweiz. He was, however, not sure if he really wanted to give up his apprenticeship and move to Canada, but in the end, he decided to go for it.

"I can play there with the best juniors in the world. It's a huge honor to be one of a few Swiss in this league," the forward says. Körbler last played for HC Davos' U17 and U20 team and will now try his luck in the OHL.
