Christoph Schubert (born February 5, 1982 in Munich, Germany) is a professional ice hockey player for the National Hockey League's (NHL) Ottawa Senators. Schubert is most often found playing defense on the third line, however, he can also rotate to forward in the event of any injury to the players on the Senators' roster.

Playing careerEdit

Schubert started his professional ice hockey career in 1999 at the Landshut Cannibals, before he played for the Munich Barons for the next two years.

Schubert was drafted 127th overall by the Senators in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft and spent the next three seasons with the Binghamton Senators in the American Hockey League.

In his 2005–06 rookie season, Schubert was largely limited in his role as a seventh defenceman, but as Ottawa forwards began succumbing to injury, Schubert was given a chance to play as a forward. His intensity and physical playing style earned him a bona fide role in the regular season and seven playoff games over the course of the year. Before Ottawa Senators' head coach Bryan Murray became the General Manager of the team, he seemed to enjoy having the luxury of a seventh defenceman dressed on any given night Schubert is playing forward, in the event that one of the other six defencemen leave the game from injury or suspension. He is generally seen as a competent defenceman and a checking forward with some physical upside.

One of his greatest assets is his shot, which was measured at over a 100 mph in the 2005–06 Senators' Super Skills Competition -- giving him the second hardest shot in team history behind former teammate Zdeno Chara.

Ottawa radio sport shows sometimes joke that the thing that hinders him in becoming a full-time NHL defenceman is his ability to play checking line forward. He has been said to be mediocre at both forward and defense, but unfortunately most see him as versatile and choose not to trade him for a pack of water bottles.

Schubert played an important role for the German national team in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.

He recorded his first career NHL goal on current teammate Martin Gerber vs. the Carolina Hurricanes on November 22, 2005. In the 2006–07 super skills competition for the Senators, despite losing to Mike Fisher for the hardest shot, he achieved first place in the puck control relay portion. [1]
