Christoph Schubert (born February 5, 1982 in Munich, Germany) is a professional ice hockey player for the National Hockey League's (NHL) Ottawa Senators. Schubert is most often found playing defense on the third pairing, however, he can also play the forward position in the event of any injury to the players on the Senators' roster.

Playing career

Schubert started his professional hockey career in 1999 with the Landshut Cannibals, before playing for the Munich Barons for two seasons.

Schubert was drafted 127th overall by the Senators in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, and spent the next three seasons with the Binghamton Senators in the American Hockey League.

In his 2005–06 rookie season, Schubert was largely limited in his role as a seventh defenceman, but as Ottawa forwards began succumbing to injury, Schubert was given a chance to play as a forward. His intensity and physical playing style earned him a bona fide role in the regular season and seven playoff games over the course of the year. Before Senators' head coach Bryan Murray became the General Manager of the team, he seemed to enjoy having the luxury of a seventh defenceman dressed on any given night. He is generally seen as a competent defenceman and a checking forward with some physical upside.

One of his greatest assets is his shot, which was measured at over a 100 mph in the 2005–06 Senators' Super Skills Competition -- giving him the second hardest shot in team history behind former teammate Zdeno Chara.

Christoph Schubert scoring against Martin Brodeur

He recorded his first career NHL goal on future teammate Martin Gerber vs. the Carolina Hurricanes on November 22, 2005. In the 2006–07 Super Skills Competition for the Senators, despite losing to Mike Fisher for the hardest shot, he achieved first place in the puck control relay portion.

Schubert played for the German national team in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. When Schubert scores a goal at Scotiabank Place his goal song is Feel Good Inc by The Gorillaz. The lyrics sound like they are saying "Schubie"
