Video: 2012 WJC, Div. 1 Group A: Konrad Abeltshauser, Germany

By Chapin Landvogt

Germany accomplished their goal of moving up to the top bracket at the Under-20 World Junior Championship by winning the Division 1, Group A tournament that was held in Germany last month.  One of the players most responsible for helping Germany achieve that goal was defenseman Konrad Abeltshauser, a San Jose Sharks prospect currently plying his trade in the QMJHL for the Halifax Mooseheads.  Abeltshauser was named the best defenseman at the D1A WJC, and was also named Germany’s best player for that tournament.

Abeltshauser spoke with Hockey’s Future at the 2012 WJC, which is included in this video.
