Anyway he's 16th in scoring among U21 players. Think he can move up the German ranks? I remember there being some questions about that before
Yeah I already spoke about this before, it looks like his team signed a new import but in that league they're only allowed to dress 2 per game, so Joey has been a healthy scratch for the playoffs. I think it will be difficult to move up due to being an import, teams look for imports to be their best players so it's unlikely a Bundesliga team would sign him. I think in the DEL you're not an import if you are an EU citizen? I could be wrong there, but it might explain the Italian passport. He would probably have to spend a few more years in the Oberliga and keep improving.
