October 6th, 2020 by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

With the 17th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, the Blackhawks selected German left winger Lukas Reichel on Tuesday night at Fifth Third Arena in Chicago.

The 18-year-old skated in 42 games for Eisbaren Berlin in Germany’s top league during the 2019-20 season, scoring 12 goals and 12 assists. Reichel also skated in Berlin’s exhibition game against the Blackhawks in Germany last September as part of the 2019 NHL Global Series.

Prior to joining Eisbären’s professional team, Reichel split the 2018-19 season between Eisbären Juniors Berlin U17 and U20 teams. He appeared in four games with the U17 club, notching six points (3G, 3A) in four games and skated in 32 games with the U20 team, recording 42 points (11G, 31A) in 32 games. The 6-foot, 170-pound forward also appeared in five postseason games with the U20s, tallying seven points (3G, 4A).

A native of Nurnberg, Germany, Reichel represented Team Germany at the 2020 World Junior Championship where he notched five points (3G, 2A) in seven games. He also helped Germany to a gold medal in the 2019 Under-18 World Championship where he tallied three goals and two assists in five games.

His father, Martin, is a German Hockey Hall of Fame member who was a second-round pick by the Edmonton Oilers in 1992 (37th overall) and played 20 seasons of pro hockey in Germany. His uncle, Robert, was a fourth-round pick by the Calgary Flames in 1989 (70th overall) who skated in 830 career NHL games with the Flames, New York Islanders, Phoenix Coyotes and Toronto Maple Leafs and won a gold medal with the Czech Republic at the 1998 Winter Olympics.
