Video: 2012 WJC, Div. 1 Group A: Sebastian Uvira, Germany

By Chapin Landvogt

Like many young hockey players his age, Sebastian Uvira’s goal is to play the sport at the highest level, that level being the NHL.  The potential power forward took a step towards making that dream come true by heading to North America from his native Germany to play for the OHL‘s Oshawa Generals in the 2011-12 season.

Uvira took a break from his OHL club to return to Germany for the 2012 Under-20 World Junior Championship held in that country back in December.  Uvira’s goal, which was achieved, was to help the German junior hockey program move back up to the top level of junior hockey at the Under-20 level.

Uvira talked to HF about playing in the WJC and other subject matter, which is included in this video.
