Found an article from the U17 tournament back in December (Dec 2011). Draisaitl had this to say,

In fact, Draisaitl admits he may have outgrown his country in terms of hockey challenges at his age. He has seen the success other German prospects such as former Windsor Spitfire Thomas Kuhnhackl, Kitchener's Tobby Rieder and Portland's Marcel Noebels have had in coming to North America to pursue their dreams.

“Yes (I want to play in the NHL),” Draisaitl said. “That's my goal.

“It's a dream to come here to play. Maybe I have to go to Canada after this year.”
