No he got a German passport to play for Team Germany. Even though he had lived in Canada for a long time, he didn't apply for a passport or citizenship there. He is quoted as saying he got the passport because he wouldn't have as much competition as he would trying for Team Canada.

His parents are German so according to German law he had enough German blood in him for a passport.
