2006-07: Denis Reul made quite a leap onto the scene this past season. As a boy among men, he presented himself quite well playing for the third leagues Heilbronn Falcons, who managed to qualify for Germany’s 2nd league next season. Reul also made a splash in Finland at the U18 WC, having been used in all game situations and finishing as Germany’s top scorer among defenseman and tied for second overall on the team.
Selected in the 1st round (15th overall) of the CHL import draft by the Lewiston MAINEiacs
2007-08: Played his rookie season with Lewiston.
The large defenseman presents a package featuring an all-around mix of skating, shooting, passing and often brutal physical play, but is a work in progress in all those areas. Noted for sometimes being tipsy and uncoordinated, Reul does have some major work to do on his general leg and torso strength, but the tools are all there to one day make to the NHL as a defensive defenseman.
