I'm not sure if it's always for the entire german speaking world or only Switzerland, but since 2010 there have been at least 3 Swiss players on the NHL covers. Streit, Hiller and Josi, don't know who it was in 2011. Maybe a german fan can confirm if those Swiss players were also on the covers in Germany. But as Switzerland is small compared to Germany it wouldn't make much sense to have a special cover solely for Switzerland.
And thus yes it's surprising there have been so few (or none) German players on that cover. Maybe because of the three countries, hockey is the biggest in Switzerland.
